    They used the Honda K20 for a good part of the season but it was unreliable, so they changed to the Chevy LS3 (with which they won at Tarumã last month). The LS3 will be kept for the 12 Hours of Tarumã in December.

    As for the Judd V10 and Powetec, I don't know of anyone here who owns any of them to be used, and the top endurance teams tend to rely on LS3, K20, Volkswagen AP or Ford Duratec power.

    From I've read I think the car can take any of the four engines available in AMS, but in real life it had only run with the Honda turbo and Chevy LS3.

    I've tried all four in the beta and the Powertec V8 is my favourite to drive, it sounds like a proper LMP2 car with that engine. Special mention to the Judd V10 sounds though, Reiza have absolutely nailed it with those. Particularly the exterior sounds are very very close to how a Judd V10 sounds in real life

    There is just something magical about this car at Kansai...that 'feel' you get when shifting through gears...that 'punch' is just magical.
    These guys are turning simracing on it's head.
    Absolutely freakin' brilliant.

    Multi class racing for 12h at Tarumã must be very intense, especially now after trying it in AMS! First and second corner are insanely fast in AJR!

    Yes, it can and a bit more, but watching the MR18 until the moment I doubt the customer teams and even JLM Racing itself will go outside the LS3 and Honda turbo as their choices with the AJR. The MR18 had this freedom too but most of the teams here used Honda or Audi turbo engines.

    I wish I could check out the new update, but game crashes in the pits no matter what car/track combo. I am not the only one with this issue. Tried a bunch of stuff with no success.....

    Great update to the best sim. Thank you.

    I do have a question about the AI---was there a change that makes them more apt to hit a slower driver (me) from behind? Was trying out the new cars on Interlagos Chicane, which I just ran lots of laps in StockCar championship just last week. I got run over quite a bit on both low and medium aggression levels.

    This is the most sensible opinion from a VR user I've read.

    Any other Nvidia Surround + multiview users seeing a spreading blob of colour on both monitors and a thin flickering line on the right monitor while sitting in the menus/garage/etc... that is, when there's nothing displayed on the side monitors?

    Subtle little changes added by Reiza.
    Watch the lights go on.
    I actually had my first proper engine failure here.
    The thing sounded like it was 'eating' itself from on-board.
    Nice touch.

    Loving the new turbo models, F1 Classic, Honda Turbo in the AJR and very satisfying turbo noise from the F-Trucks. Poooosh!
    New HUD is great too.

    I get weird colours in the corners of the screen in the menu, but it's mainly when the Steam overlay pops up when someone comes online etc. Was worried at first but it's only in menus and only in AMS so I forget about it usually.

    Yeah, I forgot to mention, it's only when in the menus... not when driving.

    Richard Crawford the car can be fitted with almost any engine. I'm part of the team and work on R&D, analysed almost every engine option and got to talk with plenty of companies, including Judd, but it's an expensive option that needs deep pockets to acquire and maintain, let alone its technical complexity, being in Brazil we need to be able to be independent if we want to solve things quickly.

    SAGY31 Yes! It's super intense given the fast nature of the track and the varied classes of cars racing, bear in mind there are old VW Beetles sharing the track with us some years. To watch traffic pass by through corner 1 is specially mesmerizing during the night.

    Wow... Awesome changelog as usual. "Excited and normal spectator sounds" sounds fun! :) Wonder if its when the Winner pass the finish line or if its also during some spectacular overtakes. Maybe there could be one for crashes "OOOWWWWW! IS HE ALRIGHT?!?! MUMBLE MUMBLE". :D

    I'm just glad they didn't implement bored spectator mode and/or spectators leaving the stands. That would likely be my default for most races.

    This is usually because of SweetFX or similar filters - i forget which AMS uses - they don't handle blank spaces well. You can toggle it with scroll lock or one of those group of 3 keys and make sure that's what it is. It's off-putting but there's nothing "wrong" with your settings or files, it's a quirk of the filter.
