View Full Version : Oversteer at slow speeds

27-08-2015, 01:57
With the latest patch seems the old over steer at slow speed bug is back. noticed at certain corners at Road Atlanta. Search forum could not find this discussed. Using Fanatec CSW wheel at default. Any ideas?

You forgot the most important information. ;)

Which car did you notice it in?

Also, did we ever really have a oversteer at slow speed bug ? Can't remember.

I'm now racing LMP2 in career mode and the problem exist. It doesn't matter which car, you can feel more oversteer in slow corners in any car, in some more in others less but it exist.

Is it corner entry, mid-corner or exit?

Um Ye the LMP2 Oreca/ Alpine has a bit of momentum in the back, with the dirty big Nissan V8 monster in the back of it, which likes to swing about in slow corners. It also has a lot of torque which spins up the rears easy.
Wouldn't necessarily call it a bug. Just maybe treat it with a little respect?

If you reckon the LMP2 is terrible, you haven't tried the Radical RX yet, have you!

I just assumed he meant road america. :)
In slow corners the downforce is gone/way lower so it's not necessarily wrong if a car is harder to drive at slower speeds.
Remember Jeremy Clarkson being scared to drive a F1 car because if you're trying to drive slow it's really dangerous without the downforce ?
So either you're driving too slow in those 'slow corners' or you need to set the car up a bit different.
Without having enough information where it's going wrong in the slow corners a safe guess is to try softening rear springrate+swaybar+tyre pressure as a start.

I just think he's struggling with turn 4. You have to brake earlier than you'd expect there. Just try braking earlier everywhere and power through or trail-brake to keep it stable
