    Hello guys,

    as Tom Illsbroux sugested I am attaching in this post the latest tyre file we will use at the start of the seasson at Spa Francorchamps.

    The release is for those who need to practice in the weekend. Drop the file here:
    C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\yourname\race 07\Gamedata\Teams\STC Doran Cup\STC Doran JE4

    I think it was a good idea and request. Anyway we hope to have the full pack ready and ready to be downloaded before sunday ends.

    Cheers,
    David

    Ok here is our finding, Thanks to Mikko.

    Tire file changes:

    [Super Soft]

    Front
    Heating=(6.90e-1, 6.50e-3) ---> Heating=(7.10e-1, 6.70e-3)
    WearRate=0.605e-6 ---> WearRate=0.645e-6

    Rear
    Heating=(6.25e-1, 5.95e-3) ---> Heating=(6.85e-1, 6.45e-3)
    WearRate=0.605e-6 ---> WearRate=0.645e-6

    [Soft]

    Front
    WearRate=0.415e-6 ---> WearRate=0.495e-6

    Rear
    WearRate=0.415e-6 ---> WearRate=0.495e-6

    [Hard]

    Front
    DryLatLong=(1.683, 1.646) ---> DryLatLong=(1.663, 1.626)
    Heating=(5.10e-1, 5.10e-3) ---> Heating=(4.80e-1, 5.50e-3)
    WearRate=0.225e-6 ---> WearRate=0.275e-6

    Rear
    DryLatLong=(1.759, 1.702) ---> DryLatLong=(1.739, 1.682)
    Heating=(4.55e-1, 4.55e-3) ---> Heating=(4.25e-1, 5.15e-3)
    WearRate=0.225e-6 ---> WearRate=0.275e-6

    In plain english this means:
    1. Super softs now heat up more and wear faster
    2. Softs wear a lot faster now
    3. Hard tires have less grip than before, heat up less and wear faster

    I really can't understand the decision making on this.

    Super softs now heat up more and wear faster??? They already were nothing better than a qualifying tyre, and were overheating by the end of the out lap if your going full pace.
    So what do we do with them now?

    Softs wear faster...well at least they have some grip.

    Hards, less grip and heat up less??? They had no grip to begin with no they wont have any at all. They arent nice to drive on.


    I'm not going to get too much into this but its dissapointing, almost the exact opposite of what we regarded were the nessessary changes.

    My opinion for what its worth:
    Start by making the hard tyres good to drive on, by giving them enough grip to be enjoyable, use them as the base tyre or prime whatever. Then you go down the softer compounds giving more grip but taking away longevity, thats it.

    I can't see the sense in how this has been done at all. There was even feedback highlighting these things when all the testing was done.
