    Hi RD community,

    How are you doing?
    I'm a 26 year old Dutch guy.
    I have had my RD account for 5 years now, but i just leeched some setups.
    Played a lot of racing games over the years, but my interest is now going to racing sims.

    The arcade racing games ain't fun anymore, cause all the crashes when playing online.
    Just downloaded Automobilista, have seen and heard much about it.
    But as a kind of noob in racing sim, I need a lot of practice and help.

    As I'm pushing myself to play without assist.
    I think I'll start of with 2 question:
    How to...
    not lock your tires when you are braking?
    not spin when accelerating?

    Than a question about RD account. 5 years ago I just put a name into my profile. Is it Possible to change my profile name? (not the username)

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello and a belated welcome to RD.:)
    I think you'll find Automobilista a very good buy. The answer to your first question is simple, practice and more practice, try not to enter a corner to quickly, slower in faster out should be the motto. You don't say what type of input control you use as that can have an effect, but no matter practice is the key.
    As to your other question, I'm not sure of the answer, maybe @Andrew or one of the other senior staff members can help.
    Lastly you could look at becoming a premium member, that would give you access to the training academy and other benefits detailed here ( Click ), as well as helping support the site. The racing clubs have plenty of members willing to help and assist new members and of course you can enjoy good clean fun racing with other like minded people.:)

    Yep, the best way is being a Premium for just 9,99 Euro a year.
    Hartelijk welkom to the active Part of RaceDepartment. :)

    I will take the Premium eventually. Maybe in a couple of weeks.

    I will need sometime to adjust to Automobilsta

    Nice wheel and I'm sure you'll have great fun with AMS, I can recommend any of Patrick Girathons tracks if you want to add to the roster.
    Hope you enjoy it.
