    What you need to understand is that the Clio is a FWD. Once you begin to sideways, floor the throttle. As it's FWD, this will "pull" the car from the spin. The easy way to take corners is to have precise amount of throttle so you can make the rear end "dance" and catch it by applying more throttle if needed.

    I have had the same problem and anyone else who has actually raced FWD cars, you know that the amount the ass end gets loose is very over exaggerated and there is inconsistency in the game for this car as well. I started the Clio Cup on Brands Hatch (on of my favorite tracks) and it was like driving a greased up cat regardless of keeping tension on the throttle, then I get to Oulton Park and practice in the rain with ZERO issues. Then I get qualifying on a dry track and the same issue with an ass happy car started again.

    I can have this one on the limit of spinning, more easily than in pCARS1. Once you adjust to driving it it's genuinely fun to chuck about.

    Havent tried them in Pcars 2 but loved them on PC1 , 1 tip is never brake these cars when ur in a corner, all the braking must be done before u turn your wheel.

    Nicolas Hamilton who races in the Clio Cup series gave the OK for this car in game, so you cant get a better recommendation than that.
    He states that the first few laps in this car are like driving on ice.

    This sounds like the exact same issue I had with the car. Could not make any pace at Brands Hatch Indy in the sun. Then in the rain at Oulton Park and Snetterton it was stuck to the track like glue. Seemed to get slidy again when it cleared up on both tracks. Then no issues in the sun at Knockhill only to have it feel touchy again at Silverstone. Very inconsistent.

    Really couldn't drive this car at all, thought there was something wrong with the car or tires.Then tried what you
    suggested now getting pole on qualifying and winning races.

    You mean, as soon as it lose traction, sliding, push to full throttle? i always have to super countersteer and it is not easy at all

    was having the same problem with this little beast, I was able to get it to drive like it was on rails by, tyre pressure, changing ride height and moving the brake distribution
    my set up if it helps I know everyone drives these car differently

    Tyre pressure front = 1.62
    Tyre pressure rear = 1.54
    lowered the front of the car by 2, did not touch the rear ride height
    Brake distribution = 60/40

    I know this might sound crazy but I found it by accident, the wet tyres seem to hold more grip on these cars and stop the over steer
    I hope it helps and I know everyone drives differently, but it worked for me

    That Clio Cup car is the hardest car to drive on any game ever LOL.

    The trick is, make sure you have throttle applied just before lifting SMOOTHlY off the brake. You can't trail brake as much as most other cars either. you need to be super super smooth
