    Go Faster - Weight Transfer - Assetto Corsa.png
    In the third instalment of the popular 'Go Faster' series of Assetto Corsa driving tutorials, Aristotelis Vasilakos shares with us his wisdom on the topic of weight transfer in racing.


    Unlike the previous tutorial releases from the Kunos Simulazioni physics engineer, in todays release Aris makes use of the Franciacorta pitlane in imaginative ways as he visualises for us sim racers the effect of weight transfer in a racing car, and offers up tips on how to make it work to your advantage out on the circuit.

    With the aid of a rather uncomfortable looking sidekick ( :) ), Aris aims to help support sim racing drivers to get the very maximum from their driving time out on track, with the ultimate aim of helping players gradually increase performance and competitiveness to ultimately move their way up the grid in racing situations.

    Although intended to help with driving in Assetto Corsa, the tips offered up across the three videos released so far will be useful for all racing sims, and indeed can and do apply to real world racing as well.

    You can watch the full episode three release from the 'Go Faster' series below:


    You can check out the other video tutorials released as part of the 'Go Faster' series by following the links below:

    Go Faster: Basic Driving Techniques (released April 4)
    Go Faster: Engine and Gearbox (released April 11)


    Assetto Corsa is available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC right now.

We have a whole bunch of mods to download, a specific area for modders to discuss their WIP projects and of course our epic Racing Club and League events. Head over and join in today.

    Interesting videos. The first two were quite cool. Aris is good at explaining things and entertaining too (but Maurizio is better at driving :)).

    Love seeing developers on a real race track sharing their knowledge and know how, it's better than spreadsheets and guesstimate small talk.

    Another very informative video even if I did know the basics of it anyway, more importantly, where do I get one of them AC jackets that Aris was wearing? :D

    Video content was enjoyable but oh boy did the sound only coming through my left headphone ruin the experience for me, hopefully something can be changed for future videos.

    I got sound effects, music etc. in both, but Aris talking was left earpiece only, really distracting.

    Great Video ! Love the sense of humour !
    However, the demo really made me understood the importance of trail braking ....
    Yes, initially I also thought that the sound was distracting...... but then, WHAT A SOUNDTRACK !
    Keep it up ( no, that did not sound right ) keep it coming ( yikes, again ) !
