How does one prevent drifting without using assits. Drifting is very annoying in the middle of the races.
Help?

Mod all of your cars to AWD, get the race tires for best traction, buy all the mods to increase handling ability, brake early, and don't power out of corners. Some sliding is inevitable in a race game, but it can be kept under control if you know how. AWD cars have the best overall control, but FWD cars are the least likely to drift., especially if you set them up right.

One big change you can make is with your stabilizer/sway bars. Lower the stiffness on the rear bar to reduce oversteer (the thing that makes you drift), but don't go too low or your car won't turn in a corner.

Use less throttle mid corner.

Maybe do full psi

Full tire psi? That would only make the lack of traction worse dude...

If you want to continue to use RWD, tune your suspension settings. Specifically, the camber and toe. On the rear, keep the camber about 0.5. And for the front camber, keep it the same as it was (likely 0.5 on most road vehicles in the game). As for toe, kick the rear out (negative) in tenth increments (0.1 at a time). -0.3 toe on the rear is usually enough to keep the car stable around corners, but different cars have different weight distributions and handling physics. Some may just need a tenth on the rear to keep it together.

Practice, or rather test drives, makes perfect in this scenario.

For AWD, you really shouldn't need to tune the car much if at all since all four wheels are getting power. (That is, without taking into account the differential tunes among other things.)

this aint true well not entirely the thing is if you convert everything to awd youre never gonna learn fwd or rwd wich are still the most fun classes to race even rally awd is fun but not as baddas as a rwd rally car not to hate or
anything i love awd asswell as i love rwd and fwd but to explain why youre wrong i made a few points below but first i would like to say something very important this
is something that most motorsport players or even circuit racer in other games with “realistic phisics” or even some arcade racers already know but seems to be forgotten on horizon allot and thats this quote
“WHEN YOU ARE RACING AND ARE TRYING TO KEEP THE GRIP AT ALL TIME YOU HAVE TO PROBABLY DRIVE SLOWER WHAT ALLOT OF PEOPLE DONT REALIZE IS ITS GONNA LOOK SLOW WHEN IT IS FAST DO NOT THINK YOULLE GET FASTER BY DRIVING SLOWER

Let me explain:
PEOPLE THAT MAKE A MISTAKE USSUALY GO TO FAST IN OR OUT A CORNER OR ARE TRYING TO MAINTAIN TO MUCH SPEED WHEN IN THE CORNER BUT THE THING IS TO GET THE BEST CORNER YOULLE BRAKE WHEN YOU HAVE TO NOT LATE OR EARLY JUST ON TIME
(braking sooner orlater will only be done to overtake)

BUT I REALLY WANT TO STRESS THIS TO BE THE FASTES YOU NEED TO BE THE FASTEST TROUGH A CORNER YES?
- WELL NO YOU WILL NEED THE HAVE THE RIGHT SPEED
TROUGH THE CORNER, SO DONT TRY AND BE TO FAST!

THE ONLY THING YOU WANT TO DO IS TRY AND GET TO FULL THROTTLE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE I MEAN WHEN COMMING OUT OF A CORNER IN SOME OCCASIONS YOULLE BE FLAT FROM THE MOMENT YOURE CAR IS TURNED IN BUT IN SOME CORNERS YOULLE NEED TO WAIT UNTILL YOURE BACK ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE ROAD
AFTER THE CORNER, THAT DEPENTS ON THE CORNER AND THE CAR KNOWING
HOW TO TAKE EVERY CORNER IS ALL ABOUT EXPIRIENCE SO LOTS OF PRACTICE IS WHAT ILL RECOMMEND!
(try and choose the track/race keeping in mind what youre weakpoints are meaning if youre bad at slow corners take a track with a lot of slow corners)
TIP: you want to take a track that helps you in the way that
If you suck at slow turns it has allot of them, but dont make it all slow turns since you need to learn how to switch between fast and slow corners.

ALSO DONT GET FOOLED YES A TUNE CAN MAKE ALLOT OF DIFFERENTS IN LAP TIME BUT THAT DOES NOT MEAN A STOCK TUNE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PUT SOME GOOD AND CLEAN LAP TIMES IN
1. Go easy in to then corner(better to go to slow then to fast cuz when you take it a couple of times youlle get faster anyway
2. Steer gently try and turn in as soon as possible( it makes it so the corner will be longer and less curved because of that youre car will have lesser resistance with the road aka better traction so faster)
3.when exiting a corner instead of mashing the throthle wide open just try to be smooth when going from braking to wide open throttle (when you stop braking just gently open up the power youlle understand when trying to do this cuz if you give to much youlle oversteer give it to less and it will be okay but you will be able to tell cuz youre not gonna be using the entire track)
4. Keep trying and improve youre sellf also please dont hate on my english im not american
