    Road cars changing driving line on its own

    So i've been mass testing cars tonight with a friend to make a list of cars I like driving and I discovered a recurring glitch in road cars.

    The glitch is as you put the car under load into a corner, it suddenly gets jerked off line and pulled wide, or sideways giving a feeling of sudden understeer.
    This can be felt through the FFB, and can be seen when following other drivers.


    This is at its most noticeable with the following car/track combination (so far);
    Mercedes Benz C63 - Circuit of the Americas National

    I need to test more cars and more circuits to confirm if its all road cars, or certain car/track combinations;

    So far tested:

    Aston Martin Vantage GT12
    Mercedes Benz AMG GT R
    Mercedes Benz C63
    Nissan GTR

    Circuits tested;
    Spa Francomchamps
    Circuit of the Americas

    FFB settings tested;
    Informative
    Immersive

    OS used;
    Windows 10 Pro 64

    Wheels tested;
    Thrustmaster T500RS
    Thrustmaster T300RS

    My theory is that the cars are glitching onto the AI paths.

    Hopefully this can be investigated and solved quickly.

    Dear Supersic,

    Have you tried tried taking the steering assist off?
    Although I am sure you are probably great at Mario Kart, Sim-Racing requires a whole new level of skills.

    There was going to be an amusing picture here, but as this is my first post here, I can't.

    Annoying, but not as bad as the forums being flooded with adverts.

    Hahahah. Yes, thank you Hatstand. Yes we tried turning off all assists etc, it's not that. I had wondered if it was stability control but it was not.

    I'm actually pretty bad at Mario Kart.

    Stability control is not really designed for the likes of us.

    You are very much correct, I hadn't even realised it was enabled until I saw it blinking in the HUD so that's thankfully disabled in my options now.

    So this was easier than expected. And rather embarrassing.

    Thanks to LeviathanPT for the help.

    I had Driving Aids set to Authentic, despite thinking I had stability control disabled the Authentic driving aids reenabled the stability control when I changed car/server.

    So the entire time that has been the issue.

    So if you find yourself running straight on mid corner for no reason, change your driving aids from Authentic to FULL, but disable Stability Control (or map a wheel button to disable Stability control, but make sure you use it every time you drive a road car)

    Here's some video footage of what stability control is doing, watch what happens mid corner



    SO just to clarify - This was not a bug at all, but user error
