I have all my assists off except for pits and my gearbox is on automatic. I turned off the racing line a long while back; for one some of the racing lines are wrong; and I use a different line for several corners.
@kingshark – that’s what I used to think. But after a while; your foot just really gets used to it. Having said that you need a wheel with Force Feedback to properly drive without TC; as it gives a better feel of how the car is behaving on the throttle. It also makes managing tyres a whole lot easier. It’s a whole lot fun at times too – if I’ve overtaken someone and am too tight on entry; there are times when I rotate the car by a throttle blip; using the power to actually rotate the car.
Only automatic gearbox on. I was one of those who said it’s impossible to drive without TC with a controller, but i was wrong. It takes practice and you need to find a good league/group of people and practice with them online. I know guys who have everything off with a controller and beat the good guys with a steering wheel. I thought if that’s possible i need to practice with TC off and it’s alot more fun.
It depends. If it is one of those races I just want to get over with, I use the racing line. Though only to get my braking points right. I find it easier with the racing line on.
And if it is really wet i sometimes use ABS.
Other then that everything is off.
Only automatic gearbox and racing line in corners (due to breaking points). Both take some time to learn by heart in real and I dont want to learn but play. Nevertheless I tried all assists one after one, TC is definitely biggest help imo.
I haven’t got a wheel (yet) but I hope to get one set up soon. At the moment I use racing line (corners only), automatic gearbox (not really possible to use manual with the standard Xbox controller), Traction Control and ABS, both of which I just can’t live without right now. I’m very happy in Forza 4 without ABS and TC though.
