    Anyone besides me use a PS1 controller to drift? (not the old grey ones but the ones with non-pressure sensitive buttons and analog sticks.)

    If so.... you know any ways to keep the tail end of a FR car from sliding out too far?

    I don't have a DS1 but maybe just tapping the gas, trying to keep it at a set RPM would work?

    Uh, use the analog sticks? I tihnk mine worked. If that doesnt work, work with tapping.

    BTW, I liek your Avatar, Loon. I like his "Reflected" image.

    I didn't even think about using the sticks, they'd have to be pressure sensitive right?

    Yeah, MC Escher is the man!!!

    The first PS1 controller didn't even have analog sticks. It was this one.

    Oh I'm sorry, misread it. I thought he said "the ones with pressure-sensitive analog buttons, not the ones with sticks". Sorry :tup:

    There was a newer version for PS1 controller that came out that has analog sticks but it makes the game EXTREMELY awkward to drive with.

    Uh, I would suggest you invest the 10-14$ in a DS2 controller. It will help with all your other gaming as well.

    Good luck.

    Incidentally, what's the difference between the DS1 and the DS2?
