    All assists are off here.

    I only wish this simcade had the ability to turn up tire audio. I have no braking feel and I can see the car wheels lock, but can't feel it or hear it in alot of cars, even when I turned down the engine audio.

    When I set it to off, I still get TC on GT cars, so at least for me off is what it meant to be real.

    All set to real - I see no reason not to drive the car the way it was made to be driven. :p

    Let me rephrase my previous post.

    You have casual, purists, and hardcore drivers.
    Casual - assists on of various levels.
    Purists - drive the in-real-life configuration of the car
    Hardcore - no driver's aids at any time.

    Right now, I normally go into a sim and turn off all driver's aids - that I know of.
    In pCars, I set it to "REAL". It shows TC/ABS/Stability control locked out.

    Since I only have a few hours in this simcade, I really don't know which cars have TC, ABS, or stability control. But I'd love to drive the car configuration as it is in-real-life.

    Thanks Matheus. Now, I can say "I thought TC was off - I crashed because it was on":D

    I crash 'em either way :roflmao:

    I drive with assists off so that I can race with anyone from newbs to aliens. I'm a mid-pack guy myself. If I don't practice without assists, I'll get lapped by the green skinned guys. I really don't like that. So far, I spend all my time off the track anyway!

    That's only achievable in AC at the moment IMO.

    I drive with assists off just to challenge myself.

    Some old people do crossword puzzles, some play shuffleboard. I shoot insurgents in shooter games and try to hit braking markers with consistency.

    I remember yelling at old people "GET OFF THE ROAD!". Now, I'm old. So I took my own advice. :geek:

    Just don't yell at me to "get off the virtual road!" It's all the fun I got left. :O_o:

    I know and I have tried that, but Real in pCars still gives you some extra assistance, like some level of ABS. And setting it to off still gives you TC, as I'm able to exit La Source flat out on gt3 cars. In AC I can only do this without taking an alternative route to the pits with factory settings.

    And thats exactly what real means @Matheus Machado :) People seem to confuse real with no assists some how.

    GT3's cars in real life run with anti-lock brakes so when you choose real in game ABS is forced, just like it should :)

    See this on board footage of the Nismo GT3 on Spa and watch how Nick McMillen exits the La Source hairpin. Notice how his right foot goes down completely to the floor when applying the throttle.

    I know they have ABS. I meant ABS in other cars, like the Mclaren F1. I know I didn't express myself correctly on that post, but what I want to say is that it gives you EXTRA assistance. And it just has one level of TC, either completely on or off, unlike AC that simulates how much the TC interferes with your driving. But all of that is just based on my 6 hours of experience with this game (4 of those configuring it's FFB).

    I have no idea if it matches real life or not. But there are more aspects of the game physics that convince me than pCars. Not saying it's a bad game, but it just feels strange to me after a long time playing AC.
