Race Starts: How to get away quickly with no TC?


Dec 20, 2014
I recently progressed to turn off traction control. It's been absolutely fine, except for the start. At race starts (both online and against the A.I), I always seem to lose a lot of positions. I either light up the rear tyres, or I get away so slowly that everyone overtakes me anyway. I've tried short shifting, moderately short shifting, less throttle, more throttle, but every time results in one of the 2 scenarios above.

Can someone help me out?

well most players have this issue at the start (wheelusers) ^^ therefore most wheelusers play with padsettings only thing is that you put your engine on start at lean (fuelmix) and try not to spin the rear tyres not too hard it's try and error

well many guys with them i driving in a league pushing always full throttle (they do not really care about the tyres on the start)

only some personal taste
