I've been sim-racing for 2 odd years now and my level is now pretty decent, if I had to classify myself, in Iracing terms I'm 'bottom of the top split' if that makes any sense. When competing in Iracing, and watching hotlaps of the aliens, my brake points are the same, it's just the other little things that make them faster, usually about 0.5 second per minute faster. In RF2 leagues though, I'm just getting absolutely smoked by the front of the grid by around 2 seconds per minute. I was watching the top time guy in practise and what really amazed me was how much later his brake points were. I tried copying his brake points (using trail-braking too) and would just go flying off the track with absolutely no chance of stopping. I tried increasing brake force but that just leads to lock-ups so I'm genuinely perplexed as to how it's done. For example with the nissan 350z at sebring, at the end of the long straight just before the hairpin (which is about 1/3 of the way through the course), my brake point for the best line I can handle is just before the 400ft mark, but my alien friend was braking just before the 300ft! Would appreciate it if one of you fast guys that's able to make this late brake point explain how in the world it's done? for reference, the track was fairly well rubbered in at this point and the top guys were hitting times of 2:11.2, whereas my best was a rather sad 2:15.5.
