Usually only for red turns, and even then tap at most. Maybe two or three turns in the entire game where I'll actually hold them for a bit (most notably the ramp from Yoko Up > C1 Out), or brake-checking guys in the middle of battles (to throw them off before turns). Essentially, I'll get right in front of a guy, slam the brake, have him ram into the back of me, and I'll hold him back til I start the turn to make sure he doesn't beat me into the turn and powers his way around me. ;)

Depends on the corner...

Some tracks, like nagoya, you only need to brake once, and lightly too.

Most of the time, I just turn early and gas tap.

Sometimes you need to brake at corners so that you wont hit your rival in a match ...

It depends

Only used brake in red turns. Coincidentally though, there are some red turns in which you only need to release gas/accelerator pedal......or no braking/deceleration at all. (like that infamous red turn in Osaka which says "15th Sakai Line District")

The more experience you gain, you're usage of the brake pedal (or rather your need to use it all the time) decrease........unless the situation really requires for it.

Just my two cents :)

I, too, also use brakes for ALL red cornerings regardless of left or right. ^_^ . But whether I brake smoothly or not-----it depends on the situation. :unsure:
