Hiya I just do time trials in F1 2010, nothing else. Manual gears, racing line, medium TC, no ABS, wheel. I'm trying to give myself the very best advantage in lap times, to gain an extra second or two or even a few 1/10ths. Some people say traction control is faster for lap times. But surely traction control would slow the car down slightly in the same way too much aero downforce would because the car is being held down more a bit like it's on rails? Traction would grip the track more but wouldn't the trade off be slightly reduced top speed? I've noticed that the people with the very best lap times seem to have no assists at all, at least, the people I compete against. I know how difficult it is to control the car from spinning out with no TC, but if I could tame the car, would I benefit from extra speed, better manoeuvrability, and gain faster lap times, or would it make absolutely no difference?
