    Hi and welcome!

    This game tries to simulate real cars, so you need to drive them as real cars especially regarding throttle and steering input. I take it you're using a controller as input device? The key element is smooth inputs, and build it up slowly. If you never played a race sim before, you won't be competitive for a while against good AI, so dial that AI level down but above all take the car out on the track and practice

    I am new at Pcars too. Using the controller and have not been able to drive in a straight line. Have not been able to take a decent corner for that matter ;-) I have been playing MS Flight Simulator for many years and it took me one year to get a plane of the ground and fly. In a decent matter that is. I have been driving around in Real Racing 3 for about three years and was not getting anywhere in the first year or so.

    I just bought a PS4 two weeks ago. I am reading a lot on the internet and looking at YouTube for information. I have a Logitech G29 and Shifter waiting in the box to be mounted on a decent race seat (which I have yet to buy) but my plan is to practice my ass off... Can I say *SS here :-)

    Like they say: practice makes perfect...

    Driving with a controller, I would definitely recommend having ABS, traction control and stability control on. You can still spin out if you go daft, but the feeling is closer to driving with a wheel IMO, because with a wheel and pedals, you can make tiny corrections very quickly, and the assists sort of replicate that for the controller. As said above, smoothness in steering is all, and use the AI (start at 50% skill and at the back of the grid) to judge your braking points. Apply throttle smoothly too and use real world driving technique, learning how fast to take each corner and build up a mental picture of the whole track. You'll get hooked before long. It's quite a different game with a controller, but fun nonetheless.

    On YouTube, search for the video 'best controller settings project cars Ps4' and watch the one first in the list (has a red r8) as the thumbnail pic.

    It made a big difference for me, as in I can now drive in straight lines and round corners. ��
