    Hello everyone. I've always had trouble with negotiating turn 3 (the long right hander) at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya and was wondering if anyone had some tips for getting around it. High downforce cars (like F1) I have no problem with, but lower downforce cars (like GT3) seem either to understeer like crazy or go through the corner at granny pace.
    Thanks for any and all replies.

    first mistake people do is to take it too open, get a tighter entry and hold a bit on the inside kerb then at the right point push full throttle kunos TM 10 will not help though, they lack grip

    You have to feel out and modulate the throttle in that turn vs all out 'planting' it to the floor.
    The rear of the car is constantly trying to break away into over-steer, so always be prepared to micro input a tiny bit of left counter-steer.
    It's fun once you get it right.

    Here's a video of a 911 GT3 Cup race we had recently. You can check out a few of the laps to check the line. I agree, it's definitely a tough corner in a GT car but manageable if you use the correct line. The way I take it is to initially hug the kerb on the inside, and then when you about halfway around the corner, it opens up which allows to get on the throttle and begin to travel across the track to keep your momentum. It's difficult to explain in words, however, you should be able to see what I mean in the video.

    It's the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car found in Porsche Pack 3, which is about $8 US. I would definitely recommend that pack if you're a modern Porsche car fan. :thumbsup:

    @Giovaneveterano That could just a bug with Steam. The DLC has been out since December 20th. :)

    The crew chief app was developed by "mr_belowski" on the Sector 3 forums where it was originally designed for Raceroom. It now supports AC, AMS, rFactor (not 2), R3E as well as a few other titles. It's the best! :D

    Quick tip though for when you're installing it for AC, you'll need to get the "CrewChiefEx" folder from the that actual crew chief installation and put it in your python apps folder in AC. Once you've done that, just activate the app in-game in your general options and you're good to go. :thumbsup:

    A great corner to learn patience on. Like others have said hug the inside and you'll get your feel and when to start applying throttle and the you can let it "Run out" to the exit by or on the kerbs. You can really put a beating on the AI in this corner once you get the hang of it
