Preffered controller settings?

I’m not very good at drifting, but I’m looking to get better. I use a controller with handbrake and clutch switched, even though I barely ever use clutch with manual because power-shifting sounds terrible in this gamw. It hurts my ears, and my soul.

One question I haven’t seen is handbrake deadzone. What’s the best inside and outside for a controller? I don’t ever use it in regular races, so I’m clueless.

Any other tips and/or tricks on getting better drifting is greatly appreciated!
