    I was actually thinking of an alt account to join the UK races. Is it cleaner over there?

    Yes. Also no.

    Depends when you race, really.

    Far more competitive than NA, though.

    From the videos I've seen, it looks about the same.
    I've had an Asian account for a while, and it seems a bit cleaner to me.
    Also, before starting a foreign alt account, consider your geographic location. I went with Asia, because I'm on the west coast of US.
    I usually have about the same connection as the Aussies and Kiwis.

    You can see from the symbols if you go into warm up but I don't think there is any way to see everybodies.

    Jump into Free Practice and we'll, practice, doing laps on RH. Get the feel for less grip. When your mate starts the race, take it easy until tyre come up to temperature.

    Think I should have said in a better way, the car keeps starting with mediums on and no matter what he does with trying to put hards on it starts him on mediums

    Before entering the Warm-up, hit the Wrench icon to change the tires. Then enter warm up.

    Other thing, if they are having trouble selecting them then go into settings during the warm up and change the tires to hard. But you have to change front tires first or it won't let you change the rears. And yeah, then take it slowing and steady through your first couple of turns.

    First time I've seen this one in sport mode. Somebody with an iffy connection can not see any other cars on their screen, everybody else can see them but their car is rock solid. It looks like dirty driving but (aside from entering the race with a 1 bar connection) they're doing nothing wrong, it does mean I got rammed out of wins by the same car 2 races in a row though...



    (The 2nd was much worse, driven through and spun down to 4th with half a lap left...)

    ahhh i'll try that. Kind of annoying in race C cos' I don't know if I should be taking a defensive line or just letting guys pass early. If they on Hards they can go, i'll catch them, but I have to slow the Medium guys down a bit or they scooch off into the distance.

    I feel like there may be an advantage for controller users when it comes to recovering from potential crashes.
    From the limited time I used a wheel, I think there would have been no way I stayed on the track here.
    The driver ahead forced me to brake sooner than I was used to.


    Can anyone with a lot of wheel and controller experience confirm or deny this?
    After races, I always get people saying, wow great save, and I'm thinking; What? That was no big deal.
    I guess I can turn my wheels from lock to lock very quickly, but are controller drivers really advantaged in those situations?

    Sure I’ve seen this in a thread somewhere. Be interesting to see his replay. He must be able to see you somewhat as he defends down the hill.

    After the race he said that he couldn't see any other car, I think that move was just a coincidence. The race after he wasn't following me for the tow. We've had it a few times in the DRWF lobbies but sport mode is usually more reliable.

    You have the answers yourself.
    • Don't rage quit - lose even more SR.
    • Use the C race that awards lots of SR.
    • Finally, be willing to let others pass, including the eejits.
    The last one takes discipline. Once, I was rewarded with a 2nd place when 9 drivers in front of me just fell off the track one way or another. That is a possible outcome in an SR.C/D recovery session where the kids are just "goin' at it!" Not likely to happen in an SR.S session.

    Good luck. Let us know how it goes.

    I'll call it my overtakes of the year, so far.

    Started P5/Finished P5. Hit the COD after getting hit at Seaside hairpin. Pitted for RM a lap after everyone. FL.

    I think so too. It's controller + reaction time. A driver still needs the reflexes and skill (like Max or Sven). But with the controller you can save a turn with a thumb. To equal that on a wheel you'd have to lock position countering the wheel counter spin. By the time you and the wheel components figure out what's going on, it's over.

    My 1st win at Bathurst was on Christmas 2018. Started pole, heard crashing behind me the whole time but couldn't see anyone. Won by 8 seconds +. The crashing was constant start to end. But no cars. A Christmas Nightmare Miracle. :D

    Yes I've seen this once in the early(ish) days, normally a clean driver ended up smashing me into the wall at Interlagos and kept turning in on me if I was inside him. After the race he said he thought he was all alone, as on his screen everyone had stopped on the grid. Then in the next race his car was stalled on the grid all race, yet after the race he was the winner, as again he was actually racing all alone. :lol:

    I mean that specific incident didn't look all that bad, but yes it was significantly easier to countersteer and catch slides on the controller. The tradeoff is I have a lot less slides to catch with the more detailed control the wheel gives.

    I just felt in general there was far less understeer with a wheel and the trade off is the controller is way more stable.

    Through esses (lake maggiorie, seaside) using the wheel was a relation. So much more turn in it was hilarious. But way easier to lose it on the gas on a kerb.

    if you release the steering input on a controller, it automatically goes to center. try releasing the wheel when you're mid spin...good luck.

    Same for driving down a straight away, let go of the wheel and it will eventually speed wobble and crash, let go with a pad and it would just keep holding the wheel straight for you.

    Wheels have WAY more throttle/brake control though. Also better fine steering control I would think. :)
