Assetto Corsa Beginners Guide

The following is a tutorial or guide for drifting with Assetto Corsa on PC/Windows, in addition to the Assetto Corsa game software, DLC Japanese Pack, Launcher Content Manager.

You also need other supporting hardware such as Steering Wheel PC (We recommend for beginners to use Belt Driven Wheels such as products from Thrusmaster T300, in addition to having smoother force feedback at a more affordable price), sim racing rig (if you like DIY, you can make it yourself using wood, iron, aluminum, some even make it using PVC pipes), besides that, it is also equipped with add-on shifters and handbrakes.

and don’t forget to turn off the assist feature, because drifting doesn’t require all of these features. Here’s a guide to turning off assists in Assetto Corsa and also in the Content Manager launcher.

Using the alternative launcher “Content Manager” not only makes it easy to install new mods but also has many features, extended AC settings, fast start, livery & weather editor, repair tools and others. That’s why we highly recommend installing this alternative launcher.

  1. Buongiorno,volevo chiedere :
    É davvero neccessario avere il “DLC Japanese pack” per le auto?
    Perché ho provato a scaricare il vostro “ACDFR 2022 PACK” ,io ovviamente non sono riuscito perché non ho Japanese pack.
    Quindi sono andato nel sito di vosan ,ho provato a scaricare un tracciato e il tracciato funziona;al quanto pare per scaricare le auto é proprio neccessario, ma funziona?
