    Does lap time leader board show even those people who used all assists on?

    I don't know if there is already tread about this but I am wondering when looking at leader boards and seeing those fast lap times in time trials and community events , what settings did these people use same as mine or did they use all assists on or some of them on.I race with all assists of so are times I am seeing from people who use same settings as mine or is everybody's time on there even those people who used all assists? If that is like that than there is no point in trying to get fastest lap times if you are going against people who use all assists on in the game.

    Assists tbh slow you down. The alien times are just damn good drivers.

    I want to turn my abs on maybe driving line but I don't want to at the same time because that is not real racing. I am always 2 sec slower than best lap times on almost all racing tracks, could this be the case that with abs and racing lines these people are getting 2 sec on me or maybe they are better drivers than me. I play on PS4 trying to save some money to buy a gaming PC. It would be nice if developers would patch this up and had 2 leaderboards one that uses assists and one that uses no assists. I know some assists can slow you down like traction control but some assists can really help you get that fast time on the track.

    That entirely depends on your skill level and to some degree on the car you're driving. ABS can be a huge boon with most cars, but the rest will also help the vast majority of drivers out there. On the absolute top? Yeah, there the assists will probably hold you back, but not by more than a couple of tenths.

    Practice OP makes u better... with clio uve to be smooth and hit the throttle early. me as ell have problems with clio, im around 52 if im not wrong, still need to be more smooth. for example with mercedes gt3 i did 30th at the end, could be better if i did some set up on my car, but still solid performance.

    so, practice, try different racing lines, and drive withooput tc and you can stability control leave ON and locking tyres ON, everything turn OFF and practice....

    Some of the road cars are almost undriveable without assists - the Gumpert and the V8 Atom for example, at least in their base tune. The Clio is slower with assists on, and they aren't called for by it's general driveability. If people are finding it hard to control a car, or are just slower without them, people will use them. It's pretty much that simple.

    The secret is to practice, practice and practice and practice some more.
    You cant expect to just jump into any car at any track and expect to get best lap times.
    Then you move onto the setups and adjust a few things one or two at a time to try and improve your times.
    High elevation tracks will reduce power so you have to compensate with setup changes.
    Do at least 2 or 3 laps to get all the temps (oil/water/tires) at optimum temps.

    Just like real life.

    I love the V8 atom with no assists even at base tune. Not tried the Gumpert, though from what you say, it sounds like it'll be a blast too.

    on one hand it seems a bit unfair that driver with automatic and all ads are in front of people who take the real thrill. But for example GT3 Cars use in Reality ABS ,ASR and Traction control. I think if you set the ads to real is okay. But automatic drivers never should be in front of a guy who shifts by hes own
