I LOVE this car IRL but I can't drive it worth &^%$ in this game. It pulls to the left, and has the turn radius of an 18-wheeler.

It makes me sad cause I really love this car, but it's nigh unusable on most tracks.

I may be doing something wrong, so if anybody can provide any hints or assistance, I would be very happy.

Cant help with the pulling left on straights but you need to drive it on the throttle round the corners, i.e. old school drifting through the corners

Just drove soma laps @ Bathurst and with default setup:
* need to be extra careful on accelerating (but not as careful as e.g. 98T)
* don't have full throttle on the bumps, hops
* a bit of throttle while turning could be helpful
* watch out during braking, the wheels will lock quite fast
* it's quite fragile. Few scratches and your steering wheel will off center - with wheel controler it just creates new neutral point. Maybe with pad it's harder because of the need to compensate?
other then that - handful but rewarding experience:)

Na nothing's wrong with it.

For it to grip on the front wheels when you brake, you can't just lift off the gas and mash the brake. You have to actually be patient with this thing - wait for the weight shift, gradually apply more brake and try to not lock up (all in a split second, but much slower than you would in a Clio)

takes a lap or 2 to warm up. then the fronts still do absolutely nothing.

check the speedo - you'll realise you're flying into corners LMP fast and expecting it to do LMP level mid-corner speeds.

brake early, scandy flick and a good stomp of the throttle to bring the arse around...

pretend you're rally driving on ice haha

Try these settings. Softens the car up a fair bit. Just go easy when applying throttle and you should be fine.
