Usually, FF, FR, 4WD, anything... I have no issue with understeer. However, the problem in the exact opposite on Akina. The early hairpins get me every single time regardless of the drivetrain. I always get so much understeer that it's sickening. Any advice on what to do to reduce this? Thanks!

1. Don't use low tier cars.
2. Use eraser
3. SLOW DOWN (use some brakes!)

I was slowing down quite a bit, but your other tips hit the nail on the head! Especially the low tier thing. I had a few fully upgraded cars, but I stubbornly chose to use my R32 while it only had 1 engine upgrade, same with my AE85. Finishing that off really helped both out, and I've got a better feel for using eraser now that I've practiced it a bit.

Thank you very much iDucky, you helped me out a lot!

No problem! BNR32 will lose on most hairpins, best to use it in the rain (rain negates the understeer, making it formidable!). AE85 doesn't perform poorly on Akina due to its passive home course bonus! You can check car Time Attack performance here http://idrankings.dyndns.org/version3/ (Thank you Turbo 85)

P.S. Remember that those are top times (professionals!) so don't worry about it too much, but ideally any car that hits under 3-4 seconds of top time will suffice.

Take a look at the lining and the use of feint (don't worry about TST)

Thanks a ton! Ill probably be using that page a bit for reference! Also,you probably thought I was crazy when I said I had a bunch of fully tuned cars, because I forgot to point out that this is for the PSP version, Street Stage! Although it's pretty much the same thing just without a nice arcade cabinet and such haha.
