I got an invite to the Mercedes-Benz proving ground,
The event basically drops you into the race, no testing or qualifying... So I start 6th never having driven this car before.

Sure enough it's on Ice and I have no steering, I thought the controller had dropped of but no...
I got acceleration, no where near like the rest of them who stream off around the corner, ahead of me...
To my car however the first corner is just a wall, straight into it with no control, bouncing off until i come to a stop.

On driving out of this situation I can see my steering is happening but it would be easier to drive in glue covered jelly or something.

This is so tragic, no car setup can fix this.

If I can't drive on 10% of the courses in this game then I am going to want my money back, seriously, this is appalling.

Maybe try to use some low ABS and TCS assists
this thread could also be useful.

Thanks for the tips.
Have been running abs/tcs but will try the tire pressures, not expecting miracles however (but I need one).
I have previously tried tire types on an ice track, the default auto/ice was obviously different (a little better) than slicks or all weather options.
I am still new at the game and using basic defaults for most runs, I am beating the comp at 60% (been thinking of pushing that to 65/70 now) but the ice tracks I have encountered hit me as simply impossible to accomplish.. I cant do even a basic corner and far from a lap...
