Whats the best way to take corners quickly? Im going on a racing car day with my mates and wondering for tight corners if its best to slow down quickly, then tap the break touch the striped board thing then try to make it to the other side asap and touch the other striped board.

O what a disgrace if such a despised and base race, which worships demons, should conquer a people which has the faith of omnipotent God and is made glorious with the name of Christ!

Come off the gas leading up to the bend and then gun it out of the apex.

play a game like gran turismo. Go the licences part, and it will give examples of corners, and the correct line to take. Then apply this IRL.

It depends on the angle of the turn and the width of the road. Don't try to drift any corners.

When approaching a turn, be near the left of the road, and make sure when entering a turn, you slow down to a good speed (I like to judge it by the turn). Then, turn sharply, but smoothly towards the exit of the turn, and once you're fully into the turn, accelerate.

If you have a RWD car, be very careful not to accelerate too hard, as you can easily oversteer, and spin out. If you have a FWD or AWD, then you will need to slow down a little more, as you can more easily understeer, and send your car straight into a wall.

Judging by the turn, if it's a sharp turn, slow down to about 30-70 mph, depending on the conditions. If you have a lot of traction and room, take it up to about 20 mph below your speed. If you don't have a lot of traction (e.g. raining) then slow it down to about 30.

If it's an easier turn, go ahead and go straight through, but remember, hug the left side, then the right side, try to keep your racing line as smooth as possible.

Another clue is to look at tire tracks, and try to keep yourself inline with those. Those are good reminders for racing lines.

Safety, not winning, is your number one concern, remember that.

Forgot to add lol, you are turning left in this case. If you were turning right you would obviously just flip the drawing.

Just clutch down it round all the corners...

I do this IRL and I've never crashed once.

I've hit corners at 50-60mph and I've got a 106...

this. probably closest thing to real life i've ever played
In speed versus emotional playing, i think of an M16 versus an M24. You can have 650 rounds per minute, or one round, one kill. Both should be in your arsenal.

Trail braking is the quickest way to take corners. Trail braking is when you are still braking into the corner. So you brake the latest you can on the straight and into the corner. Once you are off the brakes, you are on the gas again. The other alternative is straight line braking. Straight line braking is just braking on the straight, roll through the corner, and onto the gas off the corner. For this style, the slow in and fast out is applied. Trail braking is fast in and fast out.

Don't accelerate through corners, hit it just as you come out and be gentle with the breaks

Alot of it depends on the vehicles and track style.

So what kind of track and vehicles are you using?

Remember to separate braking and turning.
