    DRS = Drag Reduction System : Some cars ( Ferrari F138, McLaren P1 for example) use systems like this to allow drivers more topspeed on long straights by turning wings "flatter" so they have less drag, less grip but higher top speed .

    Cycle TC = switching through all available TC (TractionControl, allows to adjust slip of driven wheels to personal preference) modes via button

    Steering Speed = (I guess this is from joypad setup ?) How fast your controller will react to your steering inputs

    Steering filter = dont know, sry

    Steering gamma = to adjust your controller input so that your steering is either quicker or slower than your input (so the steering is consisently slower or faster over the whole way of travel) : higher gamma should make your steering inputs be way quicker than your actual controller inputs and vice versa if I figured that one out correctly .

    Sorry if I was wrong somewhere !
    Maybe one of the joypad users on here can tell you more about the different joypad setup options .
  4. Steering Filter: If you controller is jittery or has input spikes, you would add some filter to filter out those spikes. If your controller is not spiking you do not need any filtering.

    DRS (F1 Cars): There are DRS Zones (usually on straights) on the tracks where you press the DRS button to open the wing and reduce drag.

    Above: Open
    Below: Closed

  5. I should add that when Cycling through TC (Traction Control), the lower number have more assistance, and the higher number get less assistance, then Off obviously means TC is providing no assistance.

    Some cars TC is simply on/off, others (especially higher performance stuff and many race cars (GT3/GT2)) have many levels of TC and ABS. Note that real life race drivers almost always make use of Traction Control if allowed, so don't feel you have to turn it off to be a hero.

    IRL, the higher assistance TC levels (thats low numbers, I know, confusing), are usually saved for wet tracks or slippery surfaces, where the low assistance are used for dry races, and of course each driver has a different preference.

    This is the same for ABS (low number allow little slip before kicking in, high number allow the wheel to get closer to locking), again preference.

    For me, in a quali run I'll have TC turned very high (so low assistance) or sometimes off if I just want to have fun. In a race though, I usually have it set between 6/12 and 10/12, which allows some slip but takes care of the big wheelspins, helping me keep the tyres in check.

    Hope that helps :)

    DRS, is as described above. It's function allows the horizontal flap, on the rear wing to collapse, reducing longitudinal down force, giving you a significant advantage, and greater straight line speed. Do not activate DRS whilst cornering.
