    why sebring though? Quite an odd choice as the first road course. Why not something more popular like say, Spa, Watkins Glen, Lime Rock or Road A.?

    I'd say that Sebring is one of the most popular road courses in America, and cetainly the one that moat would instantly associate with night racing.

    The biggest news for me is the new SDK. Owners of SLI Pro will rejoice once EK gets the hands on the new SDK. Amazing stuff coming our way with the right n left display and also leds.

    I guess you're not familiar with the '12 Hours of Sebring' race then, lol.

    That might explain the reasoning behind iRacing's choice of track to debut their night driving.

    No need to quote the whole thing i suppose but i was amased by how cool this feels and looks..did you one of you tried this in the new build? So much about night racing but this deserves some attention to imo. I am amsed by how a little bump became a serious hill.

    video is gone already, I think he uploaded a different one (see the iracing thread, second or third post down) - this was in beta for a little while - I've been using it at ~50% and I think it gives a better experience.

    Thanks for the tip guys, great feature,give it a try at lime rock,you can really see the effect on the uphill section!!!
    Got these settings from the iracing forum:

    Change the lines in the app.ini file to this (it's in the iracing folder in your documents, use notepad or something)

    DriverHeadHorizon=1.000000 ; Percent to allow the drivers head to stay level with the horizon when the car tilts.
    DriverHeadNoPitch=1.000000 ; Percent to allow the drivers head to stay level with the horizon when the car pitches.
    DriverHeadWobble=doesn't matter ; Percent to allow the drivers head to wobble when going over bumps.
    DriverRotateHead=0.000000

    Thanks for sharing :thumb:

    Whilst these settings won't be everyone's cup of tea, with a bit of tweaking you can get the effect to be just to your liking and IMO it adds yet more immersion to the iRacing driving experience.

    Just been tweaking the numbers to suit me personally and have taken the Star Mazda for a spin around Laguna Seca and you can really begin to appreciate the elevation changes on the track more than ever, both uphill and downhill.

    :D

    Made a clip myself with the effect. Star Mazda at Laguna Sega bit of a messy lap with 1.20.2 but may give an idea of how it looks.
