I'm going to refrain from making conclusive judgements about what is realistic and what is not because I've long since realised I'm no expert! I just find when driving and especially racing in rF2, I find it immensely difficult to resist the temptation to drive in what might considered a fake or at the very least unconventional manner. I know when heading into a corner I can brake later than the ai and rotate the car on a dime to make the apex (exaggerated trail brake). The car doesn't just slightly yaw like an RL trail brake, it rotates like absolute crazy just breathing on the brake and a slight amount of steering. Mid corner, I know that if I load up just a bit too much steering input, then upon applying throttle the car will rotate out of the exit of a corner so hard it's like it's defying the laws of physics like some warp drive UFO. To drive at 99.99% pace in a smooth fluid manner in rF2, it takes immense talent, you need to have inputs that are God like, like doing surgery with a scalpel at 200km/h. But to drive at 99.50 pace, you can drive in a way that requires minimal precision, not a hell of a lot of skill, just aggression and good car control. I don't believe it's faster, but 99.50% is often good enough, and as mentioned I don't even need to bother about good lines, being smooth or much else. Just pure aggression and there you go, you're just a fraction off alien pace. Do I like it? No, as I stated it's just tempting to drive in this unconventional way. I notice in RL driving, RL drivers seem to correct even the slightest rotation IMMEDIATELY like split second. In rF2, I tend to let the rotation run it's course and let the car right itself naturally. Perhaps this is why I feel rF2 rotates too much, RL perhaps rotates just as much, but the RL drivers keep it on track like laser beam not letting it get away even for a fraction of a second, wheres I let the car yaw and don't fight it as much. I think this was a habit I picked up from when I would play back in the day and I simply could not control the straighten up of the car. The car would go in the direction of my countersteer (over correction) every single time. So I got in the habit of countersteering way less aggressively and sometimes not at all, and realised that the car would usually right itself naturally, not loose much time, and in some circumstances actually be beneficial. Edit: I'm not saying I'm a fraction off alien times, just trying to illustrate the point.
