Highly recommend the Ebook "Going Nowhere Fast in Assetto Corsa"

u/The_NightRider71 · 2 pointsr/acrl

The best thing anyone can do is read this book,witten specifically for Assetto Corsa:

cit. "This book is a comprehensive handbook for race driving on Kunos Simulazioni’s Assetto Corsa simulator. It is not a gaming guide. What you will find here are technical topics covering graphics card optimisations, force feedback customisation, simulator configuration, race car dynamics, race car components, car set-up, driving techniques, racing rules, race strategies, race tactics, psychology of race driving, and handling guides for each car type. I also present the cornering lines for all laser-scanned tracks. I describe each track, corner-by-corner and bump-by-bump, with cockpit view screenshots."

I've read this book several times(700 pages on Kindle) and made me faster,more conscious of my limits and a better virtual mechanic.
Recommended for newbies and experts.....newbies find a new world of info,experts will find very useful tips and tricks.

the author update the book at every patch of the game.

I have a DFGT, and just started with racing sims earlier this year. I would start with an easier car like the BMW E30, or the Mazda MX-5 if you have the Japanese pack (definitely avoid 80's supercars to start with). Get good at driving those first. Watch videos, read books like "Going Nowhere Fast in Assetto Corsa" by Amen Zwa. I'd leave the setups alone for now. They are usually reasonable, though tweaking them once you get more familiar will help you shave off some additional time.

With the FFB, I think you are referring to torque steer, which can happen if you gun it with some cars, steering kickback or similar. There's also more resistance to turning as you go faster. That's normal.

Pedals are crap on the DFGT, but the brake pedal at least can be helped with foam blocks. (Skip through the video to get the idea - it's a bit long-winded.) You'll probably want to upgrade at some point. This is certainly not helping with spinning out at the corners.

You can mix some of your hobbies into one, fellow simracer. Your desire for car knowledge can lead you at being a better driver. Using myself as a example, I have read this book to understand more about race techniques and this one to have a better general understanding of racing. I read them while I was bored at home or in a bus going/coming from college and at home I practiced those techniques.

Not the solution for all of your problems (I cant see a way to mix 3D modelling with anything else), but I hope that it helps a bit.
