    Keep having acceleration issues when coming out of corners with the above cars

    Anyone else experienced this or am I doing something wrong? When using the 2013 WTCC cars I don’t have this issue.

    any help appreciated

    These cars are powerful front wheel driven cars. When accelerating whilst turning, you're wheels are not in line the way they should. Also, they spin up quite heavily. The tyres need to convey all the power. Try to be smooth on brakes and throttle, that really helps.

    The Honda WTCC, turn one at Monza. I shift down to 2nd gear and the car just crawls around the corner, then once it gets onto the straight it begins to accelerate, by that time the other cars have left me for dust so to speak
