On the pad, I find it better once you get the feel of the trigger rumble feel. On the wheel I have to drop pressure a lot. Slso, default dead zones are ridiculous if you've not adjusted them....

Last night was odd. I've done 50 laps or so practice and not had that issue once.

Maybe I should actually tune the car rather jan slap a tune on as it was a handful lol!!!

Hate no distance metres just can't see anyone on bumper can and pussy foot around a corner to realise they've done the same and made it worse

Distance meter is a must. Forget dlc and freebies, get the basics sorted first.



Bathurst is going to be fun next week

I have to admit that last night was one of my least enjoyable races on here Nothing to do with you guys, but a bad combination of feeling like crap and FM5 deciding to demonstrate new ways to annoy me did nothing to rekindle the spark which I hoped the large field would.

First incident was the very first lap where I had a re-run of Dan's mysterious controller shutdown from Silverstone. (I only updated the controller a couple of days ago so does anyone know if it's the case that the update doesn't play nice with Forza?) That dropped me way behind the field by the time I'd got the controller reconnected. Then, having managed to catch up with JohnG, I had the "brake fade" episode a few of you seemed to get too. So, despite having full brake pressure, it just carried too much speed into the corner and understeered into the barrier before spinning round. After that, I pretty much lost heart.

Quite honestly, at the moment I couldn't care if Beardy Dan's big announcement is that they are releasing every track the world has ever known for free - I just want the multitude of omissions and flaws fixing

Usually in the hoppers, I don't miss the distance meter anymore, mostly cos the races are short and it doesn't matter. But really missed it last night... and I missed having proper timing and position data on the hud as well..

Didn't have any of the braking issues people have mentioned though.

Ran a few laps last at Bathurst and was hitting 2.22's and the odd 2.21's. But looking at some of you other guys times in the RUF, 2.19's

Speed is irrelevant on this one mate. Consistency is key (and not smashing walls).

One bad corner and it's easy to dump 15-30 seconds.

I've made a couple of 20's but 21's are there or there abouts.

I'm still messing with the tune, but hitting mid 21's now, there's 2.20's in there with more practice, but that's about my limit I think. Adding aero back on made a huge difference through the twisty bits consistency wise
