Hey guys I only recently discovered the joy that is GTS, and fell head over heels in love with this goddess. I've never thought a console game could come close to the likes of iRacing, but GTS totally smashed that preconception. Not only do I get to drive in organised races with a "respect rating", but the physics model feels sublime. I am currently using a PS4 control pad, but due to my new infatuation, decided to splash out on a $2k racing cockpit and wheel today. HOWEVER... First impressions of the online mode were simply amazing, with relatively clean, tight racing... except for me. For some reason, I was about 6 seconds off the front half of the pack, and I couldn't figure out why the gap was so big. So I watched a replay of one of the races and jumped into the seat of the front runners. Lo and behold, every single one of them was using ABS. As an long-time simmer, this seemed blasphemous to me. ABS is generally seen as the easier way to maintain control, but if you want to be the fastest, you have to master braking, right? It doesn't seem so in GTS. I then enabled GTS, and this beautiful simulator now felt like, gasp, Wipeout! I could slam into corners at top speed, jam on the brakes, and my car would magically be stuck to the track, with no sliding no matter what I did. The skill in driving around a course suddenly plummeted, along with my interest in the game. I immediately shaved 3 seconds off my lap time after just two laps using ABS. It totally transformed the experience. Thinking that this would be disabled in higher leagues than the piddling beginners round I'm doing, I then discovered that ABS is used in every single official race (please correct me if I'm wrong). From all of the discussions I've read, all of the leaderboard drivers use it. I worry about those GTS drivers who get lucky enough to drive a real racing car, as they're heading straight for the wall. My joy has turned into dismay. My question then is whether there is a league that forces ABS and TCS off? I know most drivers don't use TCS, but ABS is the norm from what I've read. And, for me, it's turned a serious driving game into a slot-car simulator. Would love to hear the thoughts of more experienced drivers on here - it'd be a huge relief to hear that disabling ABS is indeed faster when using a wheel and pedals, or there is a series that forces it off.
