I've been into flight sims since 1985, and fly a bunch of stuff these days (FSX, DOA, Aces High, and others). I have the works: CH joystick, rudder pedals, etc. What I find that works best for me in A0 is combination of joystick and keyboard. I use the keyboard for rudder, and speeds. I use the right hand for that, because I'm a lefty. My left hand works the joystick (pitch and bank only), and I have a special CH Control Manager preset that I load when I want to fly A0, for joystick only. I set it back to "direct" when I'm finished. I find that my rudder pedals (CH also) don't "feel right" for A0. The keyboard is perfect, since the most I do with rudders is to "nudge" either left or right, and only when absolutely necessary. You don't want to be using radical rudder movements in A0 or you're sure to lose the race. So, the keyboard gets it done. I keep my feet on the rudder pedals, but they're relegated to "placebo" status. I move them subconsciously while I'm flying A0, but they do nothing. I like it that way. Hopefully this will prove useful to any other "veteran" flight simmers out there who are newbies in A0, and who are wondering how to best use the various controllers they've invested in. The setup I've described allows me to fly smoothly, which is critical for getting good results.
