The handling is so bad that you have to forget about things you know to go fast. Some of the ABC tips for driving fast slow you down here. Things like this:
- When you approach a corner, the way to go fast is start braking as hard as possible, release progressively pressure on the brake as you put more lock on the steering, and then get progressively on the throttle as you open the wheel lock.
You do this on the game and you lose time. Because in this game you can brake and turn hard, and the car manages to both slow down and turn. And you can get hard on the power and turn hard , and the car will accelerate and turn at the same time.
There´s no need to watch out for too sharp weight shifting. Or to avoid asking tyres for hard lateral and longitudinal efforts at the same time. You just brake as hard as possible + turn as hard as possible, and then accelerate as hard as possible + turn as hard as you need.
Most cars cope with this sh*t, only some muscle cars (and rainy conditions help most cars to a certain extent) escape this sh*tty pattern. The driving is decent there, but totally sh*t for supercars or sport cars in the dry. There´s just WAY too much grip. Add the lack of weight and momentum, the lack of a proper suspension model, and what a sh*tty combo.
