How does holding down buttons correlate with driving? The so-called
'simulators' I've seen all had steering wheels that flopped around more
loosely than a 1950's auto with worn bushings.No relation at all to modern
car steering or handling.And probably overcompensation (or severe
undercomp)for steering response,and other factors.
