Been playing with the wife, driver difficulty is set to the easiest possible yet neither of us can finish above 9th place? I'm using the cars that it let's me select and I can't even come close to top 5.

Using controller btw

What is your traction setting? I cannot drive for shit if it's off yet it needs to be off for drifting. When I leave it on I do much better.

Have you got the nanny assists on like assisted braking and steering? That'll fuck you.

Braking you want it to be 'ABS on' and steering to be 'normal' that way the game doesnt brake or steer for you which it will do at dumb times when the racing line goes red (which it does on some straights for some reason) the game will brake you and the drivatars will fly by, same with steering it wont let you slip past them at cheeky times as you've ventured off the driving line.

Also are you actually upgrading the cars? If an event wants an A class and you pick one with a PI of 701 theres room for so many upgrades to get it to 800, stuff like handling so better brakes, suspension, weight reduction, tyres etc that make the car easier to drive.
Also you can blueprint races once you're out of the initial couple hours going through the seasons which means you can select whatever settings for races you want.

With the AI set to 'new racer' the game is ridiculously easy, at the start of a race the AI is 'competitive' but once you get further on they become dumber. To make you feel a challenge.

Sometimes if I need to do a quick race and I'm focussing on something from the game I'll select an easier drivatar difficulty. I swear the easiest two settings have a harder than usual driver. I always use 3rd to 5th easiest. Generally I'll use Expert or Pro for regular play. I sometimes find those easier than the easy ones.

I had most driver assists off, TC and ABS on with manual transmission but would still get smoked by the new driver AI. I turned on all assists and managed to score first. It might be my car lacking upgrades, will check.

Did you change out of first gear? laugh You should be killing it at that level, I mean getting 1st place on the first corner pretty much! Tried a different controller? Just in case your trigger isn't allowing you to use full power?
Play nice!
