PostSubject: Throttle Control Tips?   Tue Oct 22, 2013 5:33 pm

Well, my brother says that I don't really know how to throttle control properly. I asked him how to do it, but he says he can not really explain the process well. He said, "It just comes naturally to me". Any tips? I use a regular controller.

I recommend turning controller vibration on, From there its basically a process of try until you succeed.

Basically some corners you'll have to let off the gas, because your too fast or sliding etc, then simply apply smaller amounts of throttle to take the line you want and return to grip.

The vibration will help you know what your tires are doing, whether if they have grip or not etc, From there it is really you get to know how much to apply and when etc

To help throttle precision, I plant my finger on the base of the trigger and use the crook of my finger to press the throttle. Having a solid reference point helps with the degree of pressure you put on the trigger and will in turn give you better throttle control. From there you can work out precisely how to apply the throttle in corners.

Try this, on the uphill it is ideal that your tires do not skid, NOT EVEN ONCE. Try a RWD car on the hillclimb and see if you can do a run at full speed without doing a burnout in the rear. Throttle control skills are a representation of your driving skills. Novices usually full throttle everywhere and slide all over the place. Amateurs can half-throttle out of corners and keep a steady line, however slow. Then experienced drivers can exit corners at 75% throttle, thus fast. Practice hard enough and a "pro" level would be going full throttle nearly everywhere BUT without sliding the tires at all and keeping grip at all times. That's how the ultra fast times are achieved.

You can try it on the downhill too but throttle control there is a lot more subtle and less apparent, especially when driving modestly underpowered B class cars. Again, practice enough and it will become second nature.

A good way to get a feel for you tires grip as related to your throttle would be to crank up the accel on your differential. Maybe 15% or so higher then you're comfortable. Then work on smoothly getting on the throttle and easing it to full throttle while comng out of corners. You want it to be as fluid as possible and don't "feather" the pedal. One smooth motion from gently on the gas towards WOT.
