  1. As an Xbox One player with a controller, I'm currently at a loss with a couple of things. Firstly, use of the brake - firstly, I'll qualify that I'm literally just doing the first two Rallycross stages of Lydden Hill and Holjes without leaping in before I'm ready. In my head, I'm thinking I used be using the brake as little as possible to maintain momentum (apart from the Joker area, obviously.) So in my head I feel I should use the gears to maintain high revs but am I damaging the engine by doing so? My results are OK, but definitely not stellar. I can win Sweden, but not in the UK! (Yep, that bad!)

    Secondly, with my setups (I have two that I'm trying out) I honestly can't tell the difference apart from altering the gear ratio. I can't 'feel' what's transferring from car to controller, if you follow. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to deviate from the norm so early on in the game or just go for it from the off. Without being a proper car nut, I will admit I don't understand what the many sliders are supposed to do in laymans terms. I read the description of each but it's not resonating! 

  2. Well, I'm very glad I've read this thread! Admittedly, I only had a 'quick hour' on DR last night for the first time and man, I was shocked at how difficult it was to keep up with the other Mini's! 

    Don't get me wrong, I wasn't disheartened, I know that was never going to be a case of winning the first race right from the off. I think most of us appreciate that the Codies wants us to actually FEEL the car and grow into its potential. 

    It will be difficult and in tandem with my natural leaning to tweak without understanding, not spot any difference and wonder why I'm not progressing - it's going to be a slog!! I'm sure there'll be other console users that will offer up setting tweaks that will eventually reap rewards, but I'll keep going until it all kicks in!
