    Hey,
    I eventually want to get down to racing with no assists, No traction control etc...
    Do you have any tips on getting down to racing with no assists or easing myself into none at all.
    I'm even finding Traction Control: Medium hard enough to stop my car from spinning.
    Thanks

    Turn off TC and start with 11/11 wings. It will handle be very similar to TC on. Slowly adjust the wings as you get used to it but I've noticed that 11/11 wing is fastest almost everywhere anyway so you may just decide to stick with it.

    I'm currently using a wheel just finished my first season and for the start of the season I wan't to gradually turn down the assists until I don't need any at all

    I have to disagree with this. You'll be learning in a car that isn't representative of the normal handling. I'd recommend leaving the default setups - which are a base for each track, and not the same setup for every one - and take your time.

    If it's traction control you're struggling with, remember not to accelerate through a corner (at least in most cases) and ease the power on during the exit. Don't stamp on the gas until you've straightened it up and facing in the right direction. If you're using other assists I'd try adjusting to no TCS first (barring Brake assist, which you should take off right away), and possibly ABS.

    I definitely wouldn't recommend trying manual gears until you're comfortable without traction control, otherwise you'll find yourself in a tangle on the exit of corners.

    Just take your time though, it'll come eventually. Going as fast as you can and constantly making mistakes is a lot more frustrating than doing slow laps and gradually improving.
