My controller's left analog stick is quite worn out
Anyway, the rubber part for the thumb is completely taken off, wore it out a few years back and I removed the entire thing, plus, or negative in this case, is that the left analog stick's ball that keeps the stick straight, is loose!
My controller for handling any gaming vehicle has been busted for a while now, and I love racing games, I still win races.
I learned to adapt to it
The stick is too loose for me to turn left and right and it tilts in all directions by itself, so instead I keep pushing up when I'm driving or walking and that created a smaller, tighter turn radius.
I'm not saying break your analog, I'm saying try to gently turn left or right instead of 'pushing' it all the way left or right.
That JSTICKS prick with the leaked gameplay did NOT know how to drive, it even made me uneasy about the driving until I played it myself - it's easy and challenging, that's why it's perfect, just be less aggressive with your analog
