Before I begin let me explain a few things. I've owned GT5P since launch but until recently only used the controller. However these past few days i've started using my G25. Now i've had the G25 for nearly 18months but I didn't use it because I wanted to keep it brand new for GT5. My question is can you give me any advanced techniques for using the wheel and what are the ideal settings i.e Do you have power steering on or off. Im asking this because I decided to concentrate on just one track using the same car around Suzuka E. I figured the best way of getting used to the wheel is to hotlap on the time trials. However im finding myself way off the pace and what I see on the replays I cannot do myself. For example if I try and match the same speed around the last bend on Suzuka E I understeer off because im going to fast. So how are these people taking the last bend at such speed and yet keep the car on the track. Its almost as though they can steer the car much sharper than I can. I will add that I do appreciate that im bound to be off the pace at first. As i've only used the wheel for 2 days I sort of understand why im 2.4 secs behind the No1 time. I have been told it takes at least a month to fully get used to the wheel. However in saying this im sure im missing something when I watch the replays and however much practice I put in I wouldn't be able to replicate what they are doing. Im really looking forward to mastering the wheel and im sure playing many hrs on GT5 will help. However I would appreciate any help if im missing some technique or aren't using the ideal settings in the options menu for the fastest possible lap.
