So since I started playing driving games on the PS2 years ago, I realised that the long sticks on the PS2 always gave a control advantage over Xbox controllers and its shorter stubby sticks.
Now, moving to the latest GC game, it seems we Xbox users are having the same issue.
I have seen a number of posts around the web where some people have various grip styles to improve their swing.... but some go as far as using rubber band mods and other contraptions, which to me is simply cheating.
However, I have seen these silicone extensions, that sit on top of the sticks extending their length somewhat. To me, a mod like this that increases the length of the stick, would make it closer to the length of the PS4 sticks, possibly more.
