Is this too aggressive?

    I was trying to be aggressive with the car, but, I am also scared of losing traction and ruining my lap, but, I can't be scared if I want to improve my times by nearly 13 seconds.

    My aggression lead to this crash:


    My aggression got out of control and caused a crash at the end:

    Little hint: Always use the whole track. Both on entry and exit.

    When you brake in the middle of the track you are reducing your entry speed drastically because you take a tighter line than necessary. Try to brake as close to the grass as possible without touching the grass.

    When you can stay in the middle of the track after a corner, this is an indicator that you have gone way too slow through the corner.
    I am not a formula car expert but this applies everywhere.

    What he (Robert) said ;)

    Your turning angles are way too acute - you must try to straighten a corner as much as possible, whilst hitting the apex. But the straightening must be accompanied with as much speed as possible for the straight as possible line you can take.

    Look at this dude, who does it pretty well:


    By the way, what pedals are you using? If it's a REALLY cheap wheel's pedals, that can hinder. By really cheap, I mean less than $50.
