New to intermediate level player here, so please bear with me.
I think that I've learned enough about the game to be somewhat competitive. I can always win against Expert level Drivatars and can often place 1 to 3 against Pro and Unbeatable. I use an Xbox Controller, Normal Steering, Manual wwith Clutch and all assists but ABS off.
I'm also reasonable familiar with most meta cars / tunes (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-2j5a7X7sWobBCJ95fWw2rgJq-AUd4Kuc0mvo5lahPs/edit?usp=drivesdk).
Nevertheless, RWD vehicles are my Kryptonite. With TCS off I simply can't control RWD vehicles. My whole brain power is used for throttle control and preventing wheelspin. It takes a while for me to catch up with drivatars and chances are that I'll either drive too slow or end up throwing my car down a cliff at least 2 or 3 times per race.
With TCS enabled things are much better, but I still feel like cars understeer (Yes, understeer, somewhat counterintuitive since with TCS off it is very easy to oversteer). I end up having to break very early and, even doing so, I often still need to compensate understeer mid-curve by totally letting go of the throttle - and sometimes even pull the brake - until long after the curve apex. I have zero problems driving AWD cars, and while I'm not a great FWD driver, it isn't anywhere as bad for me as RWD.
I really want to learn how to drive RWD vehicles competitively with all assists off, but me + a RWD Supra, GT86, NSX-R GT or even a Shelby Monaco KC = accident waiting to happen.

Any hints for someone that haven't played any other Forza game to learn how to drive RWD vehicles in FH4?
