Most people sit too far back, resulting in straight arms when driving straight ahead and then shuffling their grip through turns.
Yes! thats it, i knew it was either reach out and comfortably grab the wheel, but that is right, you are supposed to sit back and lay your WRISTS on the steering wheel!!

... Just for the record, I do NOT do this, but is a good way of finding a good seat position. I usually go with the seat back as far as I can while easily reaching full extension of the clutch... lean back and a SLIGHT "gansta lean" to find the right position ... just keep playing with those buttons, you'll get it!
