I'm thinking about giving that Corsa one a try, but will need to sort out my desktop PC first (had an HDD crash and lost most of my steam apps data).

Huh, you need an xbox controller?  How does that work?

Tried Generic USB Controller. Failed. Used a wired Xbox360 controller. all good. except for my settings which i need to work on to stop me sliding everywhere at top speeds. 

No extra drivers or apps required. 

You can choose to mix keyboard with controller (i.e for the TS key).

Not sure if 360 will work that way just yet as the profile for it is under wheels and pedals.

I'd assume that's because of the simulation bit, but Hodgy should be able to confirm.

You cannot go flying around corners at unrealistic speeds.  Was reading that they purposely reduced the stickiness factor overall as they were testing various builds and getting feedback from users to make it more realistic, although apparently there are settings you can make for a course, but it would affect everyone.

We can discuss if we have go on the weekend. Stay away from the street cars until you get the feel. Go into car setup and make sure you have soft tires, increase wing angles and play with tire pressure. This sim is all about the physics, weight transfer and contact patch (how much of the tire is touching the road) are very important. Start slow and get to know the tracks, braking points and turn in points. As you get faster you can push these back to find the best line. Its all about weight transfer and how to use it to maximize grip.
 
The BMW z3 GT3 car is pretty easy. I have it setup on our server. GEN Saturday Night Racing.
 
Track is set to Spa.
 
This is not NFS so you need to drive within the limits of the car and your own skill. I suspect the first step is to develop your skill and then you can find the limit of the car.
 
Real world brake modulation works in this sim to. Here's how it works.
 
If its OK with you guys I would set a few rules..
 
1: No dive bombing. Using the car in front of you to stop..
2: You must say sorry for smashes you create.
3: All other =GEN= none game specific rules will apply.

...was about to ask about how to crouch using a car, but then noticed the "none game specific" part. :)

 

I can see us already either piling up on the side of the road within the first few seconds or driving around at a snails pace while Hodgy keeps lapping us, heh.

You get the xbox controller adaptor for usb and plug it into your pc. It will download the drivers and your set. Xbox controller working on your pc.

The one I am using is a look alike xbox usb controller and seems to be working well with the 360 profile in game

the ferrari 458 gt2 is a beast to drive around the Nordschleife. I think this is my fav drive at the moment.
