Seriously, all this talk of "pros." Who is getting paid? I want in on this. I wanna get paid for twitchy button mashing and a snotty attitude.

True, _~R~_ is a pro clan in a sense. And they're all twitchy button mashers with a snotty attitude. Phytotron should contact them for the inside scoop!

A bit of an old thread, but here goes:

Left: A, S, D
Right: K, L, Semicolon (I would use L, Semicolon and Quote, but my keyboard bugs out with those three)
Glance Right: Right Alt
Glance Left: Left Alt
Glance Back: Space
Brake: B (i never use it)
Chat: Print Screen (don't try this with Windows!)
(thumbs for glance keys)

Problems:
Caps lock gets hit often when trying to press A or tab.
If on Windows and one of the super keys gets hit instead of ALT, it's a disaster.


Only idiots keep their instant chat at default values!

In that regard, I'm an idiot.

left turn= A key, Z key, left arrow key

right turn= D key, C key, right arrow key

chat= S key

brake= X key, down arrow key

glance left= Q key

glance right= E key

glance back= W key

change view= R key

Pg up, Pg down= - and + keys

Toggle brake= Control key next to arrow keys

instas are 1-0, f1-f12

and most pros seem to use up to 8 keys to turn, I find that 3 or 4 works more efficiently, but I would also reccomend that you use J,K,L keys instead of the arrow keys since it gives you more choices of what sorts of keys to hit. personally I actually very rarely use three keys, but a lot of practice helps out a lot- thanks for reading if you did!

I use the classic z <- for left, x -> for right, c for brake, but my left Index finger has to share z,x and c.

Hard working finger for sure
