when using auto gearbox, the down shift is way to slow (if at all ). So you have to down shift manually.up shift is spot on . You can't brake and turn at the same time the wheels are locked straight ahead . No custom controller set ups . On grand turismo and project cars I usually ranked top 15000 in task races and academy races.using controller only (i don't have. Wheel / pedal kit.) A little disappointed so far.
