    In my opinion the 'lookahead' or 'look to apex' function makes the flow in corners much more natural in GSC, especially when I'm driving on my small screen with reduced FOV.
    To do so, I edit my 'playername'.PLR file and adjust the lines: "Lookahead Angle="0.20000" // Angle to lookahead (yaw) w/ steering in radians (= degrees / 57)" and/or "Look Roll Angle="0.75000" // Angle to lean head (roll) w/ controller in radians (= degrees / 57)" to my likings, and it makes a big difference for my laptimes.
    Unfortunately these settings are lost each time when I restart the game.
    Any ideas how I can keep them permanently and avoid them to be overwritten?

    Not sure why they'd be overwritten but you could save a copy of the PLR flle and just dump it in your install each time. Not ideal, but quicker than editing it manually each time.

    Yeah, that's what I did until now, but there sure must be a way to keep it permanently? Or should I post a bug?

    Not a clue; report it and perhaps you'll get official feedback.

    FYI - there's a Look Ahead option on the Controller 2 submenu within the Controls setup screen.

    I have the look ahead option set at 100% in the controller menu, but in the .PLR file it always reverts back from what I changed (0.45000) to 0.20000.

    Hmmm, odd. I'll have to check it when I get home tonight. I have the look ahead set to 13% in the menu which works fine for me.

    I guess you could make the file read-only after changing the value to 0.2
