Settings for RD Races - ABS or Not?

Discussion in 'Gran Turismo 5' started by Craig Morrison, Nov 25, 2010.

  1. What settings are RD races likely to use? I've all the aids turned off except ABS at 1 - the car is controllable. Turn ABS to 0 and it's like driving on ice!!! Am I just rubbish??

    If RD events are gonna be no aids whatsoever - I'm screwed!!!!!
     
  2. Depends on the car really, most of the cars i've driven have been faster without any ABS, there are a few nasty examples that are just madness without it though, like the Chrome BMW M3.
     
  3. Nah leave it at 1, maybe 0 for race cars (I believe with race tires the brakes are not so hard to not lockup)
     
  4. Run ABS on 1 if you're running cars that would have it in real life. If they wouldn't then run it off. Simple :)
     
  5. Do you get more XP if you leave al aids off?
     
  6. You don't get more exp.

    To be fair unless some cars can be fixed with race tuning/racing tyres i think that there are some cars that NEED driving aids. In a lot of situations if the car doesnt need the aids then you seriously slow yourself down by having them. Unless having them on results in people bashing other drivers off the road because they dont have to worry about spinning, i cant see any point in ruling against anything other than skid control (which increases the grip when you slide, this is obviously unfair).

    In terms of speed, driving aids slow you down a lot unless the car is one of the "I want to lock up my brakes and powerslide at 30mph" cars, like some of the Lamborghinis and the BMW M3 coupe. When i was doing licences/special events sometimes i couldnt understand why i wasnt able to get gold, then id realise the driving aids were on, turn them off and do it first try because the car was so much more responsive.
     
  7. Ok. I just started and only on XP 7. Started al races with all aids off but it was just to easy to win a race. Is there a difficulty level you can set higher? I can't find it.
     
  8. Me too. I have to have ABS turned on because my brake pedal is stupidly sensitive. I press it about a centimetre and you can see the on-screen input indicator shoot up to the 3/4 mark. I can't believe there's no axis config options in this game, particularly as I'm using the 'official' wheel of GT5.

    I have a feeling the throttle is just as bad, but its hard to tell in the low-powered machines I've been driving so far. Not looking forward to the RWD monsters...
