After a few more races, I think I've narrowed down my problems with race driving to 3 main issues. 1. Steering. I've noticed I'm not turning the wheel enough. A lot of this maybe due to me only being able to use one hand, but I need to be aware of it in race. 2. Braking. Last night at Albi I lost over 2 seconds a lap from my pb, and I'm sure it was down to braking. Being too scared of out braking myself, I braked early. I also have no idea how to trail brake, so any suggestions on how to learn this are appreciated. 3. Nerves. This is the biggest problem I think. On an empty track I'm not so bad. I'm slow, but I stay on the track (mostly). Add AI into the mix and I fall off the track more as I start to try and push too hard. But a race against real people? The tension is far higher. So many thimgs crowd into my head. Be careful, dont hit anyone! You went faster than that in practice. Will I be able to keep up this time?? Be careful, dont hit anyone! Going to be last again. No, I'm not, not this time! My muscles tighten up (not good with my right arm the way it is ), my breathing gets quicker, the adrenaline floods my system. Please, please tell me I'm not the only one like this!:disapointed: It's with the nerves that I think most people have a problem, in one way or another. Peoples focus becomes very fixed, normally on the car directly in front of them, so that car coming up the inside gets missed by the peripheral vision and hit by the driver. People push that bit harder, brake that bit later. Maybe the first thing we need to learn is not how to drive fast, but how to driver with real people on the track. Trying this against AI doesn't work. It's predictable and too forceful. You can only learn this against people. An idea. Arrange a friendly race in rF on a track with lots of grid slots, but make it a fairly small track. Make it a multiclass race, Lupo's and Golf GTI's maybe, experienced people in the Lupo's. Turn the damage down to 50% to let people continue racing after an accident. Remind everyone of the RD rules and race. In doing this you get a crowded race track, which is something I personally haven't experienced much, as I always end up on my own (and normally last). We would get used to have cars around us, forcing us to be careful and patient when trying to pass. If we're used to this, we won't get so nervous, we won't tighten up so much, we won't get so fixated and we'll all race better and with more consideration. Or that could be complete crap:clap: **EDIT** Sorry this was meant to be in Generral Sim Racing, doh!
