Hi im new to SIM racing and really struggling with rwd cars. I have Logitech g 27 and love driving with it. Ive never driven an rwd car in real life so its hard for me to get a grasp ingame to. My problem is that when i come out of corners The car spins. Id like to come out of corners full throttle still steering my wheel ,like fwds. So i guess its about oversteering. Is it possible to setup rwds to basicly act like fwds in corners and what settings will do it. Thanks in advance. Ps. I play without assistants and would like it to be that way.

You cant drive a rwd car like a fwd car. Try not going full throttle halfway round a corner. Failing that drop the rear spring rates and raise the front spring rate , you should then have plenty of understeer and stop spinning out!

Ok now i found the problem. The first rwd i drove was Ford mk1rs1600 in career mode. I just cant control it. When coming out of slow corners it goes berserk. Tried other rwds at oulton park international and even got them under control while drifting, something that feels impossible with the rs1600. Thanks for the springs info.

If they are over steering try decrease front sway bar (or ARB) a it and soften the rear as well. Also stiffen the front slow bump rebound and soften rear slow bump rebound.

The handling on that Escort is evil. Tank slapper special. Try something else if possible. Im stuck in a career mode were I am force to drive this thing. Cant wait till it ends !

Yeah i just skipped the classic races in career mode. Too much for me. Took another year with Clio, got first places in every race at 75 difficulty without touching the tuneups. This season try to improve the car and up the difficulty. After a lot of testing i came to the conclusion that it is more fun for me to drive newer rwd cars with "real" settings. Can get few good laps with assists off (mainly TC, the others i can handle) but at some point im bound to spin around after a slow corner. I have a too heavy gas foot :)

If you want to learn how to drive AND have fun with it, set assists to "Real" and drive some GT3 cars.
If those get too easy for you try the BMW M1 Procar. It can be a punishing car but it's very rewarding to throw it around without TC.

Yeah theyre fun. I just drove hours In Oulton Park International with BMW Z4 GT3 with real settings and spun rarely. Even learned how to drive with the shifters behind the wheel. Best lap time for me was 1.35.3 .I think 1.32 was the fastest that someone has driven. Really need to go watch that ghost how he did it. I tried a single race at 75 difficulty but i saw that the problem with my setup (only gear ratio and fuel load) is that everybody gets of the corners much faster and i fall behind.

If you like to mash on the throttle right off the bat exiting a corner, you're driving is going to be the problem 99% of the time. You could drop the rear spring and soft bump all the way down, but the car going to handle like crap. To be honest, that's not the correct way to drive any car, FWD included. The throttle shouldn't be treated as an on/off switch.

Learn to roll onto the throttle first. Once you get the handled, either drop the rear spring rate, rear slow bump rate, rear sway bar stiffness, and/or differential accel setting.

Yeah i know what you mean and i dont go full throttle all the time. Its just more enjoyable for me to drive with the assists on for now.
