It's been awhile since I last booted up the game (got hooked on sim trucking for awhile) and I just ran some laps with AI bots with EEC's GT3 cars. I've noticed that I had to turn down the AI strength down to 80% for a competitive laptime with the AI times. Not sure if my skills have faded, as I was doing top 5 qualifying positions on 90% in Marcas cars during the earlier builds. Seems as if the AI cars started driving faster for a rookie like me, I swear I even tried other cars and they would still kick my laptimes into oblivion. I might have remembered reading a changelog about AI improvements, but that was probably many weeks ago so I don't exactly remember which update did it.
