iRacing's new Nationwide car with new tyre model now available

Discussion in 'iRacing' started by Kevin Watts, Jun 22, 2011.

  1. This highly anticipated update has now been released on the iRacing members site. The update includes numerous fixes and updates but the one most iRacing fans have been waiting for is the new tyre model preview that is being rolled out with the new NASCAR Nationwide model. The new tyre model has been worked on by David Kaemmer and his team for over a year and they believe that this new model is extremely authentic and will improve the feeling of being connected with the road surface and consider it may well be the most significant development in the iRacing service since it started in 2008. This new tyre model will eventually be included on all cars in the iRacing v2.0 update touted for release in August 2011 but for now iRacing fans will be able to put the new tyre and the new Nationwide car through its paces.

    David Kaemmer had this to say about the new tyre model:

    The full release notes for this update are as follows:

    This makes me wonder if this was why some people in the vette were sooo much faster than everyone else in the practice or race.
