Ill start with my apps.

The only apps im using is this:

ProTires - http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/protyres.14030/
FFBClip - http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/ffbclip-app.7910/
RaceEssentials - http://www.assettocorsa.net/forum/index.php?threads/raceessentials-v1-4-5.41103/ (You need to log in)

In Assetto Corsa your game performance is heavily dependent on how many "external" apps you have activated (i.e apps you downloaded and installed) and ingame app you are running. The more apps activated the lower fps you will get.

So problem with low fps, start with trying to disable from apps. :)

Great choices, but I would replace RaceEssentials with SideKick and would add Helicorsa as a must have, especially if you are running without triple screen or VR.

I've figured it out, that the Sidekick app doesn't have coloured temperature and pressure values with the AOR modded Audi TT.

If you're using Sidekick, too, this will help you:
Download this file, unzip it to the Steam Assetto Corsa folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\assettocorsa). At the next launch it will work.

It would be kind if you could take a look at my video and see what I can improve and tell me what I do wrong since I've never driven a FWD car before I signed up to this league thanks, and this might help others aswell so we can get closer racing :)

Ok I will try to give some tips.
First of all, little bit hard to judge without seeing the steering wheel and your pedal inputs. I would advice to record another video from cockpit perspective and with the ingame pedals app enabled (hover to the right with your mouse, AC app section opens, scroll down to "Pedals" app, in case you dont know ;))

Steering
From what I saw I would advice to be a little more sensible with steering. It looks like you sometimes steer to much, running to much to the apex, open up the steering to run wider and than steering more again. Try to be more precise with your inputs, follow the curves more. Turn in, increase the steering angle to maximum lateral grip of your front tires, hitting the apex and then decrease the steering angle again slowly while applying some throttle gently.

Braking
Most obvious imo. Your driving seems to me a little bit spreaded. Atm you drive like this: Braking -> Turning -> Appyling throttle. It looks like you are not really combining these three things to be faster around the corners.
Try it like this. Approach the corner -> brake really hard at first (around 100%, ABS does the job for you) -> continuely release the brake and already start to turn in -> hitting the apex with 0% brake pedal -> decrase steering wheel angle and start to push the throttle
What I'm trying to say is, that this car benefits a lot from trailbraking imo. You just need to be careful with turning and braking at the same time, because the front axle is already heavily loaded from the engine and gearbox. You need to find the sweet spot with braking and turning in, as this gives you a lot of time.

Accelerating
Sounded like you are using TC. For me its always faster to go without TC. Be gentle with your right foot and try to sense the front axle grip in your wheel.

Lines
Nothing much to say here. Most of the time you had the right racing line. Just be a little bit smarter sometimes, e.g. VIR end of the first twisty part (around 17.00 min in your video). Go slower around the left hander, lift a little bit for the first right hander, go to the left side of the track and then hit the curb of the second right hander. If you do this properly you can do the second right hander with full throttle and gain a lot of time on the following straight.

Cheers,
Exited

i tried without TC but i don't like how it feels and im like 2 tenths faster with traction, but yeah as you said braking is my biggest problem :)

@exited summed up all the things to be said really nicely. I will add that from what I saw (only Donnington), try to find the track limits, i.e. you are not using the track to it's fullest on some turns. Explore more lines, use the Delta Timer to see what works best.
Also, while trailbraking, try not to unbalance the car too much, even though it's a FWD one. Disbalance cost a lot of time.
Hope this will help.

What wheel rotation are you using on the wheel?

How many degrees?
