    Surely just the FX90's being hyped up! :rolleyes: Just wish my brain could keep up with such HP festooned animals, can manage the odd hot lap but to maintain breakneck speeds from lights out to the flag, just bamboozles my brain and over squeezes my sphincter. :eek: Young mans car, of course being the adolescent old git I am, I will buy them all, never know, my reflexes may just be temporarily dormant and about to burst back into life, right round the next corner. Then again I may just dive to the tunnel at the RR track and make music! :cool:

    Practice keeping the revs up during initial braking, sounds dumb but tiz how it's done. Once you get the hang of it you'll be riverdancing your way around every track! ;)

    A couple of tips that might help -

    1) Brake in a straight line, sounds obvious but with no weight on that rear axle turning and braking in to high speed corners is a fast way to an accident.

    2) Trail brake. Keeping a little throttle percentage on while you turn in will stabilise the car.

    3) Soften off the rear ARB and / or stiffen the front ARB.

    4) Make smoother transitions between your throttle and brake inputs. Aggressively accelerating and suddenly lifting off completely will make the car rotate unpredictably.

    I've adjusted the Brake pressure forward. That helped me keep the Hyundai from spinning.

    If you are uncertain , like me, I have been using a little piece of software called "virtual race car engineer" which has been a great help for me , who knows very little about car setups.

    Do you struggle with driving the cars in general or just against the AI?
    If it's the latter, don't panic too much. R3E's AI is quick in fast corners in general, and I think with the WTCR cars they are too quick. I often go "wow, where did that grip come from?" when they pass me.

    Otherwise, what jayblue said. Keep it smooth, avoid lifting the gas too much, unless you want to make the car rotate.

    This driver has died from accident in this corner a few years ago in a WTCC Chervolet
    This is his tips regarding left foot braking in a Honda DC5 Type R in Macau 200km/h corner. I think WTCR has overdone the lift off steering a bit, but I am fine
