I enjoy console racing games, but not really enough to invest in a steering wheel controller and pedals.
That being said, when I'm using the analog sticks to steer, I don't ever feel like I can hold the stick at just the right position to make a smooth and accurate turn and/or drift. Rather, I find myself constantly tapping the analog stick left and right to make minor adjustments. I'm pretty sure that's not the best way, but I really haven't found any other method that feels quite right and still in control. I'm just wondering if anyone had any tips for better control and accuracy using the analog sticks.
I've seen accessories to extend the control sticks for FPS games (Something like Speed Freek, for example), but I'm not sure if those would apply in a case like this or not. Something like an accessory like that isn't entirely out of the question if it could be helpful for other things as well and relatively inexpensive.
I'm assuming this could be pretty general advice as most racing games I've encountered on the Xbox 360 and PS3 both use a typical left analog stick to steer and a trigger or button to accelerate.
