Quote from R34GTR :Thanks Managed to get some laps in once I had worked everything out, good thing I read to set the brake gamma to 1 as I was stomping on the pedal every time and nothing was happening! After a few laps I can do around 2:00 around Imola in the 458 so will keep trying and hopefully can knock a few seconds off

Oh yeah, I forgot about brake gamma. Still, the brakes on the 458 seem non existent compared to some of the cars.

Tell me about it, I thought my pedal was broken or something about as responsive as a dead cat

Shows how actual steering wheel works outside of the game.

I haven't driven on Assetto Corsa yet, but having tried drifting in iRacing and failing miserably with a G27, I must say this after watching your video: you are insane!

I'll possibly never be able to drift like this.

AC is on par with LFS in terms of driftability. Doesn't have a broken physics model like iRent and rFactor.

It's excellent. E30 is sex.

iRacing is impossible to drift. Asetto Corsa is much, much more natural to me. I can't even slide once in iRacing without lots of luck, but I can hold big slides all day with the E92 in AC.
Quote from The Moose :If low 51's are possible I'm giving up sim racing.

54.4 my best so far. Need to do more laps but so many good combos to try i'm not getting enough laps in with a single combo yet.

I agree. If 1.51s are even imaginable on that track, I'm saying goodbye to my 11-ish years of sim experience and burn my G25 in public... I went tryhard mode and rarely got 1.53.8
Certainly... There is a difference between drifting for fun or drifting to show off people that it's barely possible..
But, but are rF and iR really that different from LFS/AC in terms of drifting controllability? I drift in rF just like I drift in LFS. I'm in no way a great drifter in any of the two, however I never found drifting in rF to be significantly more challenging. Are they different? Of course. One "barely possible" while the other very intuitive? Not really.

Never got my hands on iR so I can't comment on that one.
rF is less challenging, due to the unrealistic physics that the mods provide. Of course it doesn't give you an actual challenge with that much power, steering lock and infinite front-end grip. The car moves unnatural, like freaking arcade. I never got around to drift in iRacing, but even powerslides felt crap in the MX5... AC and LFS are kinda on pair in terms of controlling the car sideways. LFS' tires are kinda soapy compared to AC thought (AC is better in that term).
I was talking about ISI's default cars, not 3rd party drift mods.

Even with a keyboard it was manageable.
Drifting in rF without mods? Now that was impossible for me to do, it was really behaving the opposite way a car should while drifting...

I'm really enjoying drifting, even though I am absolutely hopeless at it and unfortunately have been doing it more by accident than plan. I'm slowly getting the hang of the E30 with 90's road tyres and it is fun to drive.

Strangely I'm quicker with the standard car than I am with the Stage 1 uprated version of the E30 M3, anyone else find this?

I found this aswell, just understeers like crazy with the S1 upgrade. It says in the blurb somewhere that (paraphrasing) the springs are much stiffer front than back for a certain reason, so that would explain the handling.
Drove the E92 M3 for a while today, thoiught I'd try some powerslides and drifts since this cr seems to handle that pretty well. Seems you can get it to a certain angle and then it just washes out no matter what you do. Feels pretty good up to that angle though. But it gets that iRacing uncatchable after a certain slip angle....
dafq? with d1 upgrade e92m3 washes out maybe at Kawabata angles, it's fool proof for drifting
I'm talking about the standard new M3, and it's not the only car. Feels like a general issue, tbh... This was with nice and hot street tires after a few laps where I started goofing off a bit and getting it wider and wider, until I hit this threshold where the car just washed out no matter what I did. This made me try the same with a few other cars and I felt the same.

Bear in mind I have a T500RS wheel and the FFB is really vague. Could be just something makes it feel weird through FFB... The FFB "fix" made it even more vague, if anything.

To me it feels perfectly natural. Usually it's not very easy to drift with hot tyres as you just loose it. I honestly think your tyres were too hot, or you're doing something wrong, because I know the thing you are trying to describe and it is not present in my game. It kinda feels like LFS and that is so awesome. Using G25 btw.
LFS feels completely natural to me, but AC is just a little off compared to my real life experience with something comparable to the E30 M3 (GT86).
Since when is this forum full of wannabe drifters?
I find it's a nice way to evaluate over-the-limit behaviour.

Also, it's fun!

+1. Although AC has a good base for drifting, I much more enjoy circuit driving.
