There's my go on Big Forest so far, on Normal - been hammering it and tried Arcade steering but I actually took a couple of seconds off my time by using the digital steering... Was able to get round more corners with less accelerator feathering. Will post more times but this is the only track I've really gone at so far!

Nice - what's the difference between the two steering methods then?

So with Normal it's digital steering, so a tap of the analogue stick the car will steer full lock immediately. With Arcade, it's analogue. I had read recommendations to switch to Arcade, so I did that when I first loaded up the game, but I find I have to take my foot off the gas on corners more with that method. It could be that I use rubber thumbgrips on the joycon analogues stopping it go all the way? I haven't noticed anything like that on other games though. Either way, switching back to Normal is working for me quite well. It's also the default method, so if you haven't changed it, you've got digital steering :thumbsup:

Pretty irrelevant now but this is what I managed last night.

I'm not coming close to that. I'm about 3 seconds behind. Thing is I can do the whole track only lifting off the gas for a split second on that last bend in to the home straight, and I can't find a way of dropping below 3:18!

Got 3:14:15 last night on Big Forest - then went back to medium and expert tracks and have hit a wall. Can’t better 3rd on Bay Hill or 2nd on Acropolis. Absolutely solid!

Bit annoyed after I checked the replay of the world rank #1 on Big Forest. Have a look yourself and you'll see what I mean...

Yeah, you can clip the final long right hander over the grass can’t you.

Well, yeah 😄.

We’d all be 10 seconds faster otherwise 😄.
