Someone will beat it, 1st and 2nd weren't the best Handbrakez don't work in BF1 thankfully
BTW im not doubting hes a better driver than me but he just does himself no favours, first button clutch, then handbrake, why doesn't he just do the laps with no exploits because he will never get the praise for being such a driver whilst he does it.
In Bawbag's case he said it didn't but it makes a pretty huge difference in road cars, im not denying i haven't done it but he takes it to extreme levels on every corner, watch LX4/FE3 and you see what i mean, i don't think you'd find anyone in RL using one like that in a Caterham.
Yea, what Pearcy says (He was actually right for once! )
I don't know how much of a differnce it makes in the road cars, when you compare Arechees FE3 lap to mine in the LX4 he uses the handbrake in the 2nd last turn and it looked awesome, much faster than mine. Though, my lap was quite bad, I went a bit to deep into the corner and that was that. What Arechee does is the same, goes in a bit to deep, carrying more speed but he nips the handbrake to bring the rear around and point the car in the right direction, and eliminate all understeer.
I know some stuff about this handbrake driving style too, since I have used handbrake few times myself in the past and I found it as a turn in understeer eliminator.
I have to admit it's a poor way of driving, specially if you exaggerate with it like arrechee does (I never used it to that mesure). Understeery setups are mainly very fast, but they have that little problem with turn in and that's easily dealed with handbrake. That's one very ugly and undrealistic way of driving that should be avoided by any cost
Now days I've got much better setups (stronger brakes and more balance towards the back, more ARB on the back, less toe in on the back, harder rear stiff etc) so I'm not even thinking of using it again. And some things like combinating pedals can help to get the car turn in round the corner much better
