    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!
    If by "interesting" you mean "almost being ejected through the windshield trying to stop the car gently", Iīve been there too.

    I was going to post something nearly identical to Doge's post. I could probably adapt to it but there's a decent chance I'd total the car first. I work with a guy that is a left-foot braker. It's terrifying to ride in the car with him. He never coasts. It's gogogogo until we're about to rear-end the car in front of us and then it's panic brake and gogogogo again.
    The difference between theory and practice is that in theory there is no difference but in practice there is.

    Try climbing into an automatic car and the wife/girlfriend drives it for the first time thinking only 2 pedals dont need to use right foot to brake.

    Not exactly about driving tips, so properly a bit of an OT, but I thought it was worth sharing this here



    It explains how track evolution works in this game. Itīs admittedly not a key topic, but it can help you not jumping to wrong conclusions judging the latest setup change youīve just made if you practice in different game modes and sessions.

    Another great video. Do we know how a dry-wet-dry race effects the scripted grip? Does it go back to the last known dry level or reset (i.e. go green)?

    I strongly doubt it goes back to green. The "slippery racing line" effect in the wet isnīt in the game at all, I doubt the model goes that deep.

    Iīll include one more piece here. If you remember the "setup implications" section of the Alien series, I managed to display all that info together in a handful of hotlaps. Youīll be able to see in real time whatīs the most critical item for car balance at any given point and how it changes as you drive. So you should have no trouble identifying what to touch yourself next time.

    I want to test the waters for a new idea. After all the theory I explained here, I want to try a different approach. I would like footage from a specific driver interested in recieving individual tips and tutoring, the goal is to create videos in which I explain areas where people can improve by using footage of other drivers, pointing out unconventional or negative habits and explaining how to correct them.

    Of course, doing it with footage found on the internet itīs possible but I donīt want to be that idiot critizicing otherīs driving for no reason. I look for drivers willing to improve but stuck in a certain level and unable to make progress.

    So anyone interested, please leave here footage of your driving. All I need is the ability to see your pedal and wheel inputs, and a fairly decent sample in terms of lenght. A full stint on a combo you want to improve at with telemetry HUD activated and virtual wheel visible would be ideal.

    Thanks in advance to anyone interested!
