    A bad quali means I can go forwards in the race.

    IMO its another "back of the net" moment for RF2.
    Now when I drive I have to look after tyres like I paid for them. One bad lock up and the wheel vibrates like hell.
    One more step into immersion. I love it.

    Yes I agree David, it's changed the way I drive but it is fantastic.

    just did 30 mins in the FR3.5 and man its awesome with this tyre model. Front left lock up trying to save a position and in my mind I knew that was gonna hurt and as soon as I hit the straight massive vibes in the wheel! Another level of immersion!! Brilliant ISI!

    Isnt it just.
    Another subtle way to attack! Force the other guy to lock up with a bad entry.

    I have only driven GT cars since the update and it seems, that you can get away with a slight lock-up, but when you lock them for 1 or 2 seconds you are really screwed in terms of vibrations, but it depends on the cars. The Apex Modding cars have relatively low FFB in a straight line and with them you don't really feel the vibrations, so you are not really punished for it.
