I just cant stop the car, 1st lap, last lap, doesnt matter. Ive tried progressive breaking, full on, slow, fast and everything, but to slow down and not burn the tyres I'm having to break a second before the breaking markers and its killing my times.

Useing a G25 and a decent set giving to me by Stuart from redline.

It doesnt matter if I use manual, sequencial, paddle or auto, I hit the breaks and the front just looses control

Never heard about that problem before.
Maybe something with the settings in your logitech profiler, or options ingame?
Do you have change it to seperate with the brakes and throttle igame?

You need to learn to control your breaking! When you come to corner break hard and ease off as you go!

or ask for sins/tur8os set but then again you might have same problem, make sure your brake balance is at 75%

Hes talking about FZR i think Mike , correct me if im wrong Chris ... it might be worth recalibrating your wheel and pedals within LFS and then looking into your profiler options as M Larsen suggested ... have a look in our tech help section there are threads there with info about how so set up your wheel and how set up your wingman profiler . one other question do you brake with your left foot ? because if u don't u might find it easier to use the clutch pedal as a brake like i do , that way u have more control and braking is more instantaneous because there is more room . btw its not the set Stuarts is one of the best out there , it has to be either your equipment or just down to your driving style ... let me know how u get on m8 .

Ive been trying different breaking styles, rythems, everything, I just lock up, and if I dont lock up I have to break so much earlier. On T1 if I go into teh corner at anything faster than 100mph I cant hold it, it just burns the tyres out by the 3rd lap. Doesnt matter how hard, soft, progressive I try.

I can actualy drive the car faster without the G25 adn just use the keyboard.

Reduce maybe the brake force on your setup until u get use to it. Try progressive braking in combination of less power on your brakes. As I understood you hit the brakes really hard.

Is there any chance that your brake pedal is not working correct? Do you have same probs with fxr?

Hi Kleis

Just done 20 laps on full down and lift, and 20 with soft down and stop tyres from screeching.

cant get under 44's and the tyres on full down are shot my lap 3
On soft they last longer but I have to break soooo much sooner, if I go online I get people crashing into teh back of me.

Yea Gods.

Will play about with break settings as soon as I work out how.

It's prolly all about ur driving style, meybe do some hot laps and post a replay, that will be easy to tell what u r doing wrong. I asume ur front tires overheating very fast?

Or ur g25 is not calibrated in LFS.

U should set it up in Logitech profiler too, here it's how u should do this.

FZR it's not easy car to learn driving with wheel for the first time imho.
