- Right analogue stick; push up to go increase speed, pull back to decrease (14%)
I'm shocked at that! So much for us old schoolers using analogue sticks.
Pfft to those trigger boys
So what is Old School?
I picked up my first ps1 a couple of months after DS1 came outalong with a copy of GT1 my mate had the old controller and used x and square but I preferred the analogue, until Motorstorm arrived on ps3.
I dont know if it would be possible byt the redundant analougue stick would make a great sequential gear shift

You can't beat a good wheel for realism and a faster lap!
I have a Driving Force GT, best £80 I've spent for a long long time, bought it for F1 2010 but I'm sure it will be awesome with GT5 too. will never, repeat NEVER go back to a normal controller for driving games.
and as for gears.. has to be manual, I dropped my lap times by over 1.2 secs on average just by switching to manual gears.

i agree with these results. think that the R2/L2 set up is the best (and newest way) of working driving games.
loved it, ever since motorstorm, since the 'trigger' movemnt allows more control over the car and controls. comapre this to: the 'X' and 'square' buttons are very difficult/impossible to control, its rather on/off [although i think this is proper old school controls, PS1 style]; and with the right analogue sitck has the control but can't perform the left foot brake, right foot accelerate movement that driving racers (especially rally drivers) use, its either accelerate or brake rather than both.
for the controller rather than the GT wheel setup, i think that for followers of the GT series from the beginning, like me, have grown to use the controller, and because of space issues in my 'PS room' (i.e bedroom ), i have no choice lol.
on a different note, really cant my hands on a copy wednesday

I use the left stick to accelerate & right stick to brake. Up on the left & down on the right. Steering is done with the right stick also. Gearing is the R2 L2 buttons.
It works for me anyway since GT3.
Absolutely! Although it does take some time to get use too.

I am quite surprised about the results to be honest. Firstly, about huge part using R2 and L2, secondly about almost 1/4 still using X and # (square) and thirdly a bit surprised about how low the wheel users percentage is as well.
I personally use right analogue stick to accelerate and brake, left one to steer, L1 to shift down and R1 to shift up, which seems to be the 3rd choice of pad users. I would much prefer using a wheel but I just haven't been able to afford buying one yet...
And propshaft75, I'm amazed by your combo, have never heard of anyone using it before, you might even be unique! I wonder how are your lap times and consistency compared to common people
