Poor car response at Monza only?

    Hi,

    I just came out of my third race for Ferrari, at Spa, feeling like the car was super responsive and twitchy and cornered very well. However, coming into Monza, after about 25 QF laps, I came 16th, 4s behind the leader. The car feels extremely sluggish, and the cornering radius seems about the diameter of the Sun compared to the AI. Is it just me?

    Edit: Oh, and not to mention I usually use all four flashbacks in the first 45 seconds of the race in GP because of the insane collisions that ensue at every single turn.

    Well, after restarting the race twice and spending virtually all day on it in GP, I've finally finished the race in career 6 laps behind on 100%.
    Every generation, every car, no matter how much I practice, Monza's just f***ing weird. I don't get it.

    you can lose a lot of time in Monza at the corners. if you slow too much it ruins your exit speed. It's a tricky circuit to get right if you keep on the track.

    What is your setup? Long gears and low wings should be a base for Monza

    I'll try that. It's not so much the times that I'm pointing out here, it's the way the car feels. Like you're driving on a road with a thing layer of fudge.

    Well, on the 24th lap in GP, I got a time of 1:27.341. Good enough for me. I'm hammering it through the last two or three corners though so that's destroying my tyres/:

    I just completed a 100% distance test race last night. Was ok for tyre wear. O-P-O
    My TM stopped with two laps to go to get new tyres.... dummy.

    Ive been experiencing the same, and have been busy for about 2 months now to find a way to cure it.

    I could throw the steer wichever way I wanted with full trhottle and the car just wont step out atall.

    What seemed to help, is lowering the graphics settings. That made it a lot more stable. I turned it down from 19x1600 to 1200x1000 and could not believe how much mor responsive the car was.

    So I suggest update your graphic card drivers, and play around until you find a satisfying setting.

    I'm running on an overclocked R9 290 (not X), and my 7770 could do 60fps on ultra. I think you were just running it a bit slow on the CPU side (that's usually what causes the game to actually slow down, not just skip frames).

    Im running overclocked 7800 HD. Somehow I thought that was the reason.

    I think the game itself just doesnt run smoothly without vsync on. However, many options on slows down the steering response.

    I hope all this is fixed for the upcoming installment.

    I'll give it a whirl, then. Particularly with options such as V-Sync.
