    Check out his channel, he has some really awesome stuff all to do with pCars. I really found his tuning guides useful for those that are interested in that stuff!

    Just want to say that your channel really helped me be a better driver/engineer. Even though I play racing sims for a long time I can still pick up some tips from your videos. Thanks alot!!! keep them coming.

    Well it takes both skill and a bit of masochism .

    If that thing keeps moving my trim marks anytime I add a transition Ill end up throwing the console off the window one day.

    These videos help me to understand more things, thank you for sharing your knowledge, I didn t realise the game takes into account such subtle pedal footwork.
    Is it better to brake and accelerate using the same foot or can we use braking on the left foot and acceleration on the right one?

    For cars that dont require clutch use after the start, brake with the left foot.
    For cars that require clutch use and heel-toeing, brake with the right one, unless you use autoclutch. If you do use it, brake with the left foot.

    Just took the chance to add one more bit on the OP.

    It's funny how you adapt to different habits with different things. In the real world, I drive a manual car and have to right foot brake and save my left foot for the clutch. For many years, my sim driving setup has only had 2 pedals, brake and accelerator, so I taught myself to left foot brake. Now I have upgraded to a three pedal setup, I only use the clutch for the start and left foot brake for the rest of the race. I find it difficult to adapt back to three pedal operation in sim racing with right foot for the brake, while at the same time still use the conventional method in my real car. Go figure!?

    Oh I know what you mean. I have the exact same problem. Left foot braking in pCARS is second nature, really. The moment I got my first wheel-and-pedals-set all I ever used was left foot braking. But really cannot get my head around driving the ingame car like my real car, meaning right foot for gas and brake, left foot for clutch. (I tried braking with my left foot, once. It didn't work. At all. Too much steering column and dashboard in the way. It also feels wrong. )

    I'm fairly certain that I always use my left foot for braking in cars with paddle-shifts but right-foot with manual shift cars (and use heel & toe technique).

    As with Emil, braking with the left foot in a real car is "interesting" if you've only ever driven manual shift cars - muscle memory usually takes over and your instinct is to push harder than necessary. I tried it once or twice, never trying again!
