Constantly Spinning Out?
I'll admit, I'm not that good at racing games - so it's no surprise I struggle to keep up with the pack even on the lowest difficulty. I feel as if I'm getting a hold on steering now, but I still spin out if I so much as tap a wall or turn a degree too far to the left / right. Is there something I can do to combat the constant spin outs, or is there at least an easy way to recover from one?

Also, how am I supposed to take those tight 90 degree turns? I can do the turns that give you some time to prepare, but I can never rotate fast enough without drifting, which is a garunteed spin out.

Thanks.

Let off the gas a bit. You can always do the rewind.

A little less accellerator, and maybe try turning on traction control. This could help you alot. The game admitidly is hard to play with it off

Press trigger less until the tire spin no more

go into turns laying off the gas. keep sensitivity to 100. hardest thing to learn as a rookie is not to constantly "floor" the gas peddle. easy constistant driving wins races. speed does you no good if your always overshooting your turns by entering them too fast. (oh, and ramming cars in front of you helps, too..lol) once in turns, i always "feather" the gas peddle as it helps drifting thru the turns. i had a huge hard time with this game awhile back because i got so used to the "race 07" series, which is more forgiving on being a lead-foot. Also, turn off the in-game music, and turn the environment sound all the way up. as you drive, you'll hear your tires spinning out..thats a good indication you are over-accelerating

oh, im sure their will be a comment that you should use the "E" brake to drift thru corners, but i never got a handle on doing that very good..but if you get good at that..that helps a lot.

Thanks for the help everyone! I'll definitely try to lay off the gas, considering I was always trying to go as fast as possible. You're right, Ohio, consistency is better than speed! Hopefully I'll do better in future races now. :)
