  1. Guy's what's the best setting to gain most steering grip, in some corners it's realy horror.
    Sure control my right foot is one option, but there must be some other?

  5. Or I think you can also learn from the AI driving? Is their driving optimal too?
  6. They don't have a lot of mid corner grip. So what you need to do is two things, really make sure you get the rear slightly rotated on entry (this starts sometime during the braking phase), and then you also need to make sure to not get on the power too earlier and/or too hard because that will cause the rear to plant and grip but that will be taking grip away from the front, this will lead to mid-corner to corner-exit understeer.

    You can't really go by a calm and controlled entry and then just use lots of steering lock for tons of mid-corner front grip, no, you have to really rotate the truck before hand in order to set up the corner slightly earlier and therefore rely more on the trucks rotation to corner rather than just pure steering lock and front bite.
