Can any one tell me why on one corner on every track every one who's in the lobby spins out on the same corner even with assis on it still happens.. I was in a lobby last night with no assist on steering sensitivity on 60 still spin out at this one corner came off reduced to 30 still did the same thing..this has been happening since the release of the game

Without any more details or videos with telelemetry, there really isn't anything that can be said about this.

The car turns round all the other corners fine

You're on cold tyres in a car that is notorious for lift-off oversteer. Without seeing the throttle input aswell, it's impossible to know whether that's what caused some of those spins, but I wouldn't be surprised.

Also, at 3m52, going into T1, you can see the car shift down to 1st gear, inducing shift-lock in a car that is notorious for lift-off oversteer. That's what caused the spin there.

How do I fix it and why doesn't it happen on every corner

Fix it? it's the natural tendency of that car (and any front wheel drive car, come to think of it) - so either being a little less violent coming off the throttle or tune it out with a setup (don't ask me how, I have no idea!). As for the double-downshift, I don't know.

Floor the go pedal ;) with FWD you often save spins by inducing understeer with acceleration. other means to make it less tailhappy is to reduce front camber, stiffen the front suspension.
As a side note, if I recall correctly the toe settings should be kept at about 0. I can't notice any handling difference but it improves straight line speed massively.

Turning steering sensitivity down make corner entry more vague. If anything id turn the steering sensitivity up and give yourself some time to adjust to it. It will feel twitchy at first but most of us have found somewhere 80-90 works well. Once you adjust to it you should find its much easier to hit the corners accurately every time.

I do agree that the Cold Tire Physics are totally Wonky..
Good to have it, but It's way too excessive....
Even on Street tires, I've never experienced such Sliding in my FWD cars, even on Track days when Pushing the heck out of them.

Can't say I've even Spun one in real life.
But in pCars, they spin around ever so easily.

I've not Driven the Cleo in real life, but if it handles anything close to how it does in pCars,
I don't see how they use it for Racing.

I can't imagine that it really Spins out, so often like this.


edit:
Here's some RL footage.
Look at the start. in pCars you'd never be able to Zig and Zag like that. You'd loose control and Spin out...

Most of the cars on project Cars don't handle as they should in real life
