    Some of the cars are designed to be driven with traction control. Use factory settings and you're getting the machine as the engineers intended it to be.

    I fell into that trap when I started playing Assetto Corsa. I thought I should be turning off all the electronics for a more realistic experience. I was doing the exact opposite and making it unrealistic.

    Yeah but I really feel i lose lot of power using traction control especially in exit corner

    Are you using a wheel or a pad?

    double post:

    Like the others have said. Make sure you stick it to factory and then if your having firther problems turn it to max and slowly turn it off.

    It really comes down to how u feel the car. I don't use tc,but some cars u really need good throttle modulation. On some cars just wind over gas pedal will make u lost traction. And other factor is tyre pressure,temps and grip.

    It's more about the timing rather than modulation.

    It's more about being late & patient to press the accelerator button, although you have to focus to remain on the ideal racing line to make it work. Once you get the timing down there's a bit tiny bit of modulation but nothing being difficult.

    The cause of spin is too much forcing steering input trying to go in where the car can't fetch. You steer where the main inertia is heading. Obviously it's in the forgiving side in the way the game handling is modeled.

    Yeah i’m try and is going always better, what i gotta learn is not to be in hurry to catch the first.. i come from gt sport and i’m not used to enjoy a fight for a third or fourth position, but i gotta change my mind and enjoy it anyway. No traction is the way!! Too much fun

    But the ai is faster than players even with the same car?! The slipstream doesn’t work..

    Slipstream works fine, but is different from car to car of course. If the AI gets a better exit from a corner they will leave you behind/overtake you on the straight.

    The ai uses the same physics as the player and slipstream does work.

    Let's be honest here dude, some oversteers are irrecoverable, modulate your gas pedal, counter steer, brake, be polite, or even scream. sometimes you cannot catch it.

    I am not critisizing AC, at least it is realistic. In some other older sims ( but more expensive ones), (IRacing), losing balance happens for no obvious reason, for example when you are driving totally straight, in a low powered car like a Mazda Miata, after you totally finished the corner.

    Sorry for long reply and thanks for reading.

    Agree,but alot of practice will help.
    There is lot of stuff to learn to become cosistant from lap to lap,and like Mr.Deap said,its more to self control and not rushing on gas pedal on exits,or underseering cos late braking or giving to much steering input where car is just to fast to make a turn.

    Just to be sure, TC on AC works the opposite to what you'd maybe expect. The higher the number the less interference from TC eg. 10/12 you shouldn't feel any power loss.
