    This could potentially be sub-optimal for me.

    I have joined this forum quick to see if there is any last hope for me to remotely enjoy this game.

    I bought the limited edition version for PS4 as I was to excited for this game being a massive GT and Forza fan and most other racers..

    But the steering in this game is just so off its unreal. I have played with the setting and found a post on another forum with setting which I have also tried.

    Its like I'm driving on ice.. I'll be braking under control and then all of a sudden the car will just steer off one way and when tring to recover form this is so twitchy. A few races its been ok but 99.9% of the time is so frustrating. And because of the cocky handling you mildly come off the track and that laps invalid.. And sometimes even the next one will be!!!

    I have never played such a frustrating racer and REGRET buying this. Its the biggest disappointing release for me...

    Is there any tips or ideas to resolve my frustrating issues to help me enjoy this game.. Or get rid?.. Its a loss on money and move on....

    Switch on all the aids, except steering and braking. Keep ABS, Stability and Traction on - I'm assuming you're using a controller? Start there along with the settings from here and see how you feel. I know it's not the 'done thing' and goes against your racing instinct to run with driver aids, but it will make it more manageable initially - then you can start switching them off. The biggest difference comes from increasing the Speed Sensitivity, play with that first.

    You driving with a wheel or a controller? I know it sounds strange but have you tried just cruising around the track a few laps? This game is gonna handle different that GT or FM. You cant drive it the same way.

    Setting up your controller 1001 times will not help but only add to your frustration, put the game down and wait for the patch buddy

    Have you considered investing in a wheel?

    I use a wheel from sofa with one of these: http://wheelstandpro.com/

    Excellent piece of kit, and it folds down.
