had some practice laps.

it's still a struggle with these cars.

But i supose when the back is braking out, you slightly give a little bit of throttle to correct it . (otherwise you will loose the car)

So i'll try to steer in sharp, braking a less harder then needed , and correct it with using my throttle. Hope this is the right way to drive these american beauty's.

Any driving tips are more then welcome.

Freddie, here a replay of my fastest lap with the Camaro that you can watch and learn some driving tips from it. one crucial thing with those cars is not to put them side way in the corner entry, you want them to have body roll but not slide in corner entry. its always best to enter the corner slower but on the racing line then to slide and go width at the exit. here a little exemple, T1 the breaking point is a bit before the dark racing line appears, you brake hard and downshift to 4th gear release then start releasing the brakes gently while starting to turn in and then downshift to third gear, maintain a bit of throttle while still hungging the curb, start accelerating gently toward the end of the corner and short shift cause you don't want the wheel to spin too much and put you side way. that technic is the same everywhere on the track and on any tracks for that matter. another tip is to take the corner 1 gear higher then you thought it should be. exemple turn 2 you might think its a second gear corner but in fact its a third gear corner. hope it will help you improve your lap time and if you want to try my setup for any of the cars just let me know and i,ll post it.

cheers
