    Hi, I always race without abs and traction control. What's the view is it a moremail realistic and a more purist way to race or is using abs and traction control okay ? In AC there is a notable difference.

    I'd say it's okay as long as you use factory settings. If it's used IRL why shouldn't we? That said there are many cars that can be faster without TC. The key is how consistent can you be without it. I personally use weaker TC settings in GT3 cars, the 488 GT3 is pretty stable even with TC disabled. In e.g. the LaFerrari however it is very hard to drive fast without TC, at least for me.

    I think it's "ok" to use whatever settings give you the most enjoyable experience. Personally I go with the factory settings in AC, and turn the assists off per car if I want to spice things up a bit.

    Not being much of an online racer myself I could be wrong...but dont different servers have different rules about what assists are allowed?

    I can't speak from experience with AC as I haven't raced it online yet, but most of my past racing in other sims was done on servers that forced assists to be turned off. That said, AC is somewhat unique in that it features a lot of modern cars that have assists in real life, so perhaps people set servers to "factory" as well? Not sure what RD does regarding this.

    I always race without abs and traction control as well, its seems to easy to drive GT3/ GT2 with them on.
