    Traction Control.

    So the traction control seems to be on all the time.

    In car set-up options there is a traction control slider but no matter what setting you put in the game play options for driving aids (REAL), the traction control setting doesnt go less that 1%.

    I cant do a burnout or donut which tells me its on ever so slightly

    Maybe I'm missing something here.

    the slider is how much % of slip is allowed before it kicks in...think you have to switch it off (you can map a button to this if you wan to do real settings) for burnouts, it wont let you get that kind of wheelspin on.

    TC (i assume) is going to be on by default for any car that has it, to check if its on flip on the HUD in a non-cockpit view, in the lower right box are indicators for ABS, TC & stability control

    My Home -> Options & Help -> Gameplay -> Driving Assists Allowed -> All/Real/None.

    Real I guess adds driving aids according to the vehicle.

    It's not actual traction control, but a setting of the differential. Every simulator has it, though I believe it normally has acceleration and deceleration values. Someone should correct me if I'm wrong and explain it better.

    yusopov has it right. For cars which do have TC, you'll need to assign a button to turn it off or force it off in the Driving Assists Allowed menu. Real assists mode will default it on at the start of each session for cars where it is realistic.

    In setup, the TC adjustment is % slip allowed. Higher %, more slip, less TC effect.

    A WMD member told me here that for cars that donīt have TC this value does nothing. Can someone else confirm?

    Right, it does nothing when TC is disabled (either by the player or because a car doesn't have it when assists are set to Real). Little oversight that the setup menu slider is still active in those cases. It can be ignored then.

    Thanks, so if set to none its off as would be expected and that overides any other setting in the car set-up, like traction slip.

    So with it off and in the Caterham why wont it spin the tyres when I try and do a burnout or donut?

    You can clearly see in your first video that the pressure to the tires are completely different transferred then in the other two. Your back-end goes all the way through its suspension so there's a lot more weight on your rear end. This will cause the tires will have superb grip.

    Tyre pressure has nothing to do with it, you can put it all the way up and it does the same thing. No car setting will change what those back tyres are doing. This is a rear wheel drive with the engine, 105 bhp, in front and it only weighs about 600kg. Those back tyres should spin. The white BMW is PCARS the black BMW is Assetto Corsa.
