  1. As always, great stuff. Very professional and informative. I'm here every Wednesday and Saturday like clockwork!

  2. Broughy, in the first video you suggested the Toyota GT 86 for a car to start with. You mentioned that it was the 15th anniversary edition. I only have the standard game and purchased the regular GT86 for 30,000. Is this basically the same car as the one you use except the livery?

  3. Great video!  I don't know much about racing, but was always told to tap the brakes multiple times prior to the turn instead of holding the brake.  I assumed that tapping the brakes avoided brake fade (maybe I'm using the wrong term, but basically I assumed that holding the brake made the brakes work progressively worse for the respective turn you are braking) and made the brakes work better.  Can you tell me the pros and cons of tapping the brakes vs holding the brakes?  Great series, keep up the good work!

  4. In terms of gtao, is use of the e brake ever justified? Like Skidding/powersliding/drifiting On your grand prix hairpin for instance? Or is it always faster to use the regular brake and racing line?

  5. Ah this helped me a lot XD I started doing practice runs on Cutting Coroners in GTA Online with my Nissan GT-R (Elegy) and my time has improved from 1:05 to 0:59 in about 15 laps. First i tried performing the racing line correctly, but the braking killed me, and once i got the hang of that I was able to outrun anyone on the track. As long as they werent dicks and didnt just try to ram me of course, thank god for non-contact… It lets you focus on the road rather than getting hit by players. Before now i tried drifting sometimes, and looking back on it, it really butchered my times.

  6. This must be where I always go wrong in GTA. I go up to a corner at a high speed and tap the handbrake just before I turn. Usually this makes me skid out of control and into a tree (or a person, or into the water. )

  7. This stuff is extremely helpful man, thank you for making these!  I'll be watching them all eventually.  I just joined NoDo on PC, we had an excellent session yesterday with a playlist of your races.  Would love to see you drop by and show the master race some love dude!

  8. In GTA 5, how much are you tapping the brake? 80% 60% 40%?

    Should it be a fast tap or a slow gradual thing?

    It is really hard for me to tap the brake in such a way that it doesn't mess me up in some way, even with an xbox controller. The transition from nothing to full on is too quick.

    Thanks for this series BTW.

  9. Absolutely the best way to be a better racer. Thankyou for the help broughy. my question is that do you play gran turismo 6 now and again? I was wondering if we could have a few races online when my ps3 gets fixed.

  10. Some questions here. Do you use a wheel when playing GTA races? I don't know if it's possible at all but I guess you use a wheel in other racing games. Do you like Driveclub? I loved the graphics but a racing game not at 60 fps is a huge let down to me. Thanks.

  11. Thank you for this. I was looking for driving tutorial videos that were not too specific to one game and I'm sure this racing school will help me remembering the basics. thx for doing this.

  12. nice video theres so much to coment on this ! this explanation is very simple and will help 90% of the everyone! So i l just get to the other 10%.

    THE BIGEST FLAW OF IDEAL BREAKING IS THAT IF THE OPONENTS CAR IS IN BETER CONDITION HE WILL EVENTUALY OVERTAKE YOU BY COPYING WHAT YOU ARE DOING.

    THIS MEANS LEARNING TO USE WIERD RACING LINES/BREKING POINTS WILE GETING GOOD/CONSISTENT TIMES WILL INSTEAD TROW A FASTER OPONENT OFF BY CONFUSING HIM WITH POOR AND CONSTANLY CHANGING RACING LINES AND GOOD TIMES, AND ITS AN ABSOLUTE NIGTHMARE FOR PEOPLE THAT CAN ONLY THINK ONE WAY OF DRIVING IS THE BEST THERE IS.

    EVER WONDERED WHY FIRST PLACE RARELY GETS THE FASTEST LAPS? THIS IS KEY OF THE REASON WHY!

    Breaking later then ideal is actually better to cars that tend to oversteer! speacialy 4 wheel drives with the best griping tires. This will overload your tires and cause then to be spent faster, but it should be great for overtaking and races with very few laps.It can benefit times speacily when your racing line is not ideal namely when you have cars by your side.

    Breaking sooner then ideal is better when your car tends to understeer(front wheel drives in general), it does not give you a time advantage in aniway during most single lap times but this is actualy the best and the fastest way to race very long distances, since its more kind to the car, your tires grip will last longer, This is what a myself specialize in since its great for street and dayly driving(my car is a front wheel drive as well), breaking early makes it very easy for people to overtake you wich is a plus for long distance racing and GREAT FOR NOT GETING DAMAGED during a race.You can practice this all the time, with any car, its safest skill out there, its not the fastest skill for a racer to have but i cant recomend this enougth !

    breaking idealy as show in this videos have many benifts: perfect for time attack and ghost races, very good for defending giving away positions and lastly and most important keeping your avarage time very close to one another!But it also have some disadvantages: it wont go well in an unknow track, its takes tons of practice (gt will actualy lower the cost eficiency on this, but it will take alot of money and time to get proficient at this in every track, so get one track you like most and practice !practice is key for fiding "ideal breaking point").

  13. Hey broughy, i kinda think i need to ask you this but i have a task for school in which i have to give instructions and i was thinking to tell my class how they can be better at playing racing games/karting. now i wanted to use your videos and screenshots from your videos as examples. Now i dont know if i have to but i want to ask you if i may use those screenshots. anyway thanks and keep up making awesome content

  14. Thanks for the videos, I've watched plenty of your GTA online racing videos…and I have a question about braking(in race simulations not in gta:o)
    Is it good in some corners to not brake at all but rather just release the throttle…corners like 'curva grande' on monza race track?
    cheers

  15. so how do you translate this to your gta racing when there are no technical signs or anything to let you know these things? gta 5 is definitely not a real racing game but there must be something you look out for not to go flying into the corners or spinning out when there is a loss of traction on bumps

  16. this video is very applicable to gta online races. i was pretty good before, but this has improved it ten fold. also, your tire clipping video opened my eyes big time — off road tires are ugly, but the extra money from wins is beautiful 🙂

  17. When I'm racing (especially in GTA) I tend to fly off the map or spin way too much. I sabotage myself more than the oher players lol

  18. It is wrong that you should not brake in a corner, all the best racing drivers sometimes tap brakes in a corner for weight change and better balance

  19. If you're on a controller, use the right analog stick to accelerate and brake. Pull BACK to ACCELERATE and push FORWARD to BRAKE. It's more natural than the trigger buttons, you get finer control. The result is that you're pushing down to brake like in a real car.

  20. Completely new to racing games, this tutorial was wonderful
    Had a question though, it might be a dumb question but do you turn and brake after your initial straight line brake? Or do you just hold break until you get slow then just turn? I'm trying a street course that has like 75° turns i mean some crazy turns and i can't seem to get it. Either i brake and get passed or i try to keep my position and crash into the wall going to fast. Any help is appreciated

  21. You showed how you start breaking and breaking less. but I play racing games without using pedal/wheel. so how would one counteract this using only a keyboard? PS: not playing this game but PC2 and GTAO

  22. It's silly that I've been drying cars for literal decades but I can't/couldn't break when on a racing game. I guess it's because in real life I rarely go above legal speed anyway so it doesn't matter even if you fail, though I did notice it's kinda stupid to break when turning in real life.
    It's also a little psychological I think. When on a racing game you "must go the fastest" so it may feel stupid to break a lot before the turn but you know what, that's what intuitively I did in real life too, it just feels stupid to not break before a dangerous turn.
