    To return to the rf2 fold. I've been playing other sims during the last few months and it's come back round to RF2 again. I've downloaded it again and It's like I've forgotten everything I ever learnt. I've downloaded the official ISI stuff as when I upgraded to windows 10, all my files went missing :-( I was into this sim in a big way up until February and then flat spotting just pushed it out of reach for me as it just became to real but I'm willing to give it another go. I remember you guys as the most knowledgeable sim racers I've met so hopefully you'll still have patience while I find my feet again. Cheers

    "Ow! Ow! That hurts!"

    At least it's better than navalpicking.

    By the way, wait until you flatspot a stockcar's tires during a spin... good thing the pits come around pretty often in ovals.

    You can simply overdrive the right tire and you get massive vibrations :D

    I'm going to keep my questions just in this thread if that's ok. When I last played this, you had to go into the files and mess with the steering torque but I notice there is an option in the control settings in game. Is that the same thing?

    Yes. The steering torque minimum force is now an option in the UI.

    Thanks. How do I open the json files? When I go into my documents, it wants to take me to the app store but when I was on windows 8.1 I used to be able to go in and edit them. I'm on windows 10 now.

    So having started playing this again, I've got the graphics looking ok and I've been trying the new stock cars and the apex GT on Mountain peak. Bloody hell! I've had one heart attack in my life time but driving those stock cars is likely to give me another lol I actually felt out of breath driving them. The porsche 997 sounded fantastic compared to some sims I've been playing recently. Beautiful meaty throaty roar to them. It feels good so far coming back to this. Just need to get a little more road feel through my wheel in a straight line on my TX.

    Can someone share their TX wheel settings for the Apex cars please. I have 70 100 0 0 in control panel with 540 rotation. Using about 5 torque .80 multiply at the moment. Thanks
