    Hey Everyone,

    Just started playing the game, so I have the assists on at the moment. I've been noticing that even if I get pole position I can rarely maintain it through the first corner. It feels as if the car has just had it and fallen off during the turn (no power), I'm not sure if this is the brake assist or traction control, but its slightly frustrating.

    I'm on PS3 with a controller. God I can't wait to get a G27

    I turned off all assist in my Virgin, but still couldn't outrun anyone on the start, even my teammate, or the other lowest tier cars, they just pulled away really easily.

    Are you putting Max throttle before the red lights go Out?
    Try something different like, start give a bit of throttle while the last light gets on and full after all go off.

    A cliche so you don't need to worry about your start: Races are not won in the first corner; however, they are often lost there.

    Just take it easy, rev up to 90% and try to feel when your wheels are losing traction. Just before that gradually release the throttle a little, regain traction and floor that paddle :)
