    Trying to learn to drive with a controller. It's not going too well. I don't know, the thumb stick feels uncontrollable. Not enough travel for my liking. If they were somewhat higher the steering would be easier and more precise... i think. Anyone have experience with these?: https://www.kontrolfreek.com/thumbsticks/call-of-duty-black-ops-4.html

    Also, the brake trigger feels too weak. A harder spring would do the trick i think. Or if anyone has a better idea.

    Forget those clip-on rubber type extenders. I have tried several different types and, while they work ok for a short while, they soon become loose and fall off regularly.

    I bought a set of these recently and highly recommend them -
    Thumb-Stick-Grip-Metal-Buttons-Mod-Repair-Replace-Kitfor-Xbox-One-Elite-PS4-
    A bit of a pig to fit, but well worth the effort - brilliant for the TT game, and they are quickly tuneable as the stick part is held in place by a magnet so can be changed mid-game in seconds.

    I used these (https://www.kontrolfreek.com/speed-freek-apex.html) for the left thumbstick and it worked alright, I know exaclty what you mean regarding the trigger spring being to soft for braking, unfortunately I have not found a solution ... I am now back to my old banged up G25

    Get a Xbox Elite controller. Comes with taller thumbsticks and just feels more accurate..
