Getting through standing water

    Just wanted to share a breakthrough I had yesterday with rain driving and the puddles. After ending up in the wall on Kemmel straight for what felt like the 100th time no matter what I tried to do or how slow I drove there, I suddenly realized - engine braking is still breaking.

    What I needed to do is ensure, that there is no acceleration whatsoever, while driving thru the puddles.

    Because my right foot can't be fully trusted, I achieve this, by just going into 6th gear before the puddles, and now they are a non-issue.

    Seeing how many people struggle with this online, just like I did. I just thought this might help someone enjoy the rain races more and the servers won't loose 1/2 the field in first couple of laps once the rain starts.

    It depends on the car, some can go through flat out, some get a little unstable, and some you have to lift. The 6th gear technique you mentioned also depends on the car, some cars are already at 6th gear before Eau Rouge.

    OR use highest TC and WET ECU map if u can't handle it.

    Don't think TC and wet ECU map changes much. At Spa if it rains and have to enter the track from the pits I end up in the wall at the start of the straight way too often, even if I just coast with no steering input, with the default wet setup.

    I have to try the sixth gear method but honestly it's frustrating either way. I cannot recall having heard of real life drivers having the same issues and it tends to rain a lot at Spa. The puddles and aquaplaning need some rethinking. Puddles clearly don't always cause such issues in real life and aquaplaning doesn't only occur when driving through obvious puddles, quite the opposite. Edit: I guess I should amend this with noting that I know that aquaplaning is possible outside of puddles also on the storm weather setting and the longer it rains.

    It's the same as rl. You need to strait line the puddles.

    I real life, coasting (in a straight line) through a puddle doesn't make the back your car break-out. I don't understand why it happens in ACC, as it's not realistic.

    I probably didn't explain myself properly. The problem I had was that I just lifted completely off the accelerator in a high gear, which is basically the same as going through the puddle with breaks applied.
    The goal is to have as close to zero torque on the rear wheels as possible, neither accelerating, nor braking. Meaning you would stay at approximately constant speed, if there was no puddle, not slowing down.

    And since I'm not so good with my throttle control, to achieve that in an arbitrary gear at arbitrary revs, I discovered that selecting a higher gear and applying ~10-15% throttle helps a lot with this.

    Couldn't that be achieved the easiest way by fully depressing the clutch pedal? Or am I missing something?

    Backing off to 95% throttle works for me regardless of gear I'm in. Sticking to far left of track is also a better line.

    really struggling with the puddles at spa - tried 6th gear "cruising" - much better than before - thanks a lot! :)

    Probably your car is too low, lift up a little

    Lifted up to max to test but the problem was still present. Better but present. With 6th gear it was much better. Have to test both at one time.
