Hi, I'm new to Trackmania and I instantly fell in love with it but I was wondering how to find or join in any clans?

Thanks in advance.

5 keys to play this game

arrow keys, and restart. :P

best way to learn how to play well is to get out and play, instructions give you a good general idea of the theory but drifting corners at "400kmh" to within a wheels breath of the wall is just something that happens as you get more experience.

Hey I'm use an XBOX 360 controller and when setting the buttons I can't seem to make a button that does nothing. For example, Button 8 is pressed by pressing down the left analog stick. It was defaulted to pause the game if it was pressed. The problem here is that I would accidentally hit this every time I turned. So I tried to have the button do nothing but it only let me switch its roles. Right now it is set to the horn since it has no effect on the car but its annoying to hear the horn all the time. Is there any way to remove a buttons actions entirely?

Nice tutorial, but I have a question: I didn't find at any options a place where I could change number of visible opponents... Could someone explain me better?

Regarding input devices, i use a Dualshock3 SIXAXIS with Tamamy Ikesu's driver , accel and brake on separated buttons and steering using the accelerometers (turning the whole thing side to side, like a steering wheel)

I suck at driving (usually when it suggests a server where average skill is supposed to equal mine, i never get a position with less than 2 digits), but i would suck much more if i used a stick or keyboard to drive, using the accelerometers to steer works wonders :)
