Hi guys ive been playing with abs since the first day i got it, and im using controller on ps3. but i see so many people using steering wheel and pedals and they are using ABS. I'm not complaining about them using ABS because I use other assists but I dont see why people are using, I hardly ever lock up my brakes? I do sometimes but i quickly fix it, so it should be really easy with pedals. BTw ive turned tyre sim and fuel sim on.

Im playing on Xbox 360 with no assists on at all and find it more realistic. If you have a good car set up and are super delicate with applying gas and brake there shouldnt be a need. So I tend to agree with you on that score!

I havent spent much time racing and am just learning the tracks but will soon look at manual gears and taking ABS and traction control off. I think I'll wait until I get the nice wheel though...

OK I tried ABS and TC off plus manual gears last night and best I managed on my favorite track was 1.5 seconds slower than my personal best. The good news was that I did about 15 laps and was getting closer all the time and it made me drive better. Concentration even for one lap was intense

Cheers

I like to keep it real folks, am currently in Career mode in a Williams, setting is on legend, no traction control or ABS, all assists are off. A real challenge, practice and patience are key, and time with trying to set up the car!!

Umm, I dont agree with that ipswich1992, I dont lock up but when i do it like minor, and it only happens when i press on the brake like straight away full on into a hairpin or something. And its not because Im a good driver, because i know there are people out there who drive much much better than i do so i dont see why you guys fins it so hard.

i see what you mean, even without abs i rarely lock up, its much easier braking than 2010, the only track i have brake locking problems with is singapore

I don't agree, I lock up with ABS on, and more so with it off. Sometimes it's because of my entry to the corner, but I know it's not only me.

im with derrick here, even with abs on it is tricky on a pad. so with it off it nearly impossible, especially at singapore lool

You will never see the difference if use traction control. Idont use aids, and y usally set the brake pressure low to find some abs effect... breaking closer to corner without locking tyres..
