JoyCalib.yaml iRacing config file
Share an easy link: edracing.com/joy
 
Easily tweak calibration settings for wheels and pedals.
 
joyCalib.yaml is located in Documents/iRacing/
The data was previously hidden in controls.cfg.
If you've enabled "use custom controls for this car" the file is located in Documents/iRacing/setups/[carname].

If you edit manually while in a session, the file reportedly gets reloaded when you open the in-sim settings dialog then close it again.
"you may need to make a change in the options screen to get us to do anything on exit, but it may be enough to uncheck/check any old box"
 
Use 'notepad' to open joyCalib.yaml
Don't edit/save the file while the sim is running. 
 
 
Make a copy of your files before editing.
I regularly save a 'zip' of configuration files in Documents/iRacing/
Before saving/editing/replacing files, exit sim and wait a minute
(or check Windows Task Manager to see iracing.exe isn't running).
As explained by David Tucker's post the sim needs to fully shut down.
 
 
The following data from my Logitech G27 wheel and pedals connected with a Bodnar usb cable.
My pedals were first calibrated with Bodnar's program.
Other brands (and sets) may report differently.
My findings are based on trial and error.
Someone else shows their own in thread.
 
Calibrated on my current computer; joyCalib.yaml
Note: I use brake pedal for clutch, and clutch pedal for brake.
 

CalibrationInfo:
 DeviceList:
 - DeviceName: 'Logitech G27 Racing Wheel USB'
   InstanceGUID: '{3F173600-D584-11E0-8001-444553540000}'
   AxisList:
G27 steering wheel:
Following the in-sim calibration instructions, my wheel calibrates to 872 degrees.
That isn't unusual and should provide 1:1 ratio in-game.
If I force it to calibrate to 900 (testing in MX5), the turning ratio isn't 1:1.

    - Axis: 0
     AxisName: 'Wheel axis'
     CalibMin: 0
     CalibCenter: 8216
     CalibMax: 16383
 - DeviceName: 'Logitech® G25 Pedals'
   InstanceGUID: '{6829D690-9A02-11E1-8001-444553540000}'
   AxisList:
G27 brake: (using clutch pedal)
   - Axis: 0
     AxisName: 'Z Rotation'
     CalibMin: 0
     CalibCenter: 0
     CalibMax: 800
            600 shorter stroke for 100% braking
            1000 longer stroke for 100% braking
G27 clutch: (using brake pedal)
   - Axis: 1
     AxisName: 'Y Rotation'
     CalibMin: 800
            800 very short stroke for 100% clutch
            200 long stroke for 100% clutch
     CalibCenter: 980
     CalibMax: 980
            980 is clutch disengaged
            2016s1 changed to 980 from 1000 because I was riding clutch
G27 accelerator:
   - Axis: 2
     AxisName: 'X Rotation'
     CalibMin: 150
            150 gives me full throttle before pushing pedal through floor boards
            At 0 I'm trying to push the pedal through the plastic base.
     CalibCenter: 1009
            Didn't test this - I'm only guesing it's my no-throttle point.
     CalibMax: 1020
 
 
For comparison; joyCalib.yaml from my old computer:
