Hello all. Im learning about finding the lines around the track and car control so wondering if anyone wants to practice session so I can watch and have better drivers rub some knowledge upon me.

Hey sweets. Good to see that you are wanting to learn the lines and techniques for the circuits. Having a wheel is a big help. This enables to build up 'muscle memory' in not only your arms but also in your legs and feet.

By doing laps you will get used to how much you need to turn the wheel for each corner, how aggressive you can be for the corners and also how much correction you may need when things do get a little bit out of control. So when you drive the lap, try to put as an input as possible. If you turn the wheel 90 degrees but the car could make it through at the same speed with only 70 degrees, all you will do is slow you down due to extra drag and also eat through your tyres. Also being smooth is a huge benefit. This will enable to tyre to 'grip up' in the correct way. If you are too aggressive with the input itself you could effectively jump over its operating window.

However, what you can learn through your legs will make a massive difference to not only your pace but also consistency.

Project Cars has done a very good at simulating every aspect of a cars behaviour and one of these is 'weight transfer' if you are too aggressive with your throttle or braking at certain times then you can face an unpredictable car during braking and acceleration. Braking will gain a huge amount of time if done correctly. When approaching a corner, certainly at high speed, stamp on the brake pedal as hard as you can. This will ensure that you are using all the braking power available. Then just as you get to the corner, blend off the brake. This will ensure the car is nice and stable as you go through the corner. This will obviously need to be adapted for varying corners.

Hope you pick up a few tips from this and fingers crossed you will see your laptimes dropping.

Thank you. Definitely can be much smoother.
I been training at brand hatch in the Audi v10 for awhile and Consistently get 1:40~46 fastest is 1:36-39 but its rare.

I can use more smooth inputs. My weight transfer are sloppy. Just became aware of gas is not for just going and brakes are not just for stopping and the effects of locking them up.

Im going to watch the vid.Thanks
