    Well, you can feel a big change on tyre management and physics, the cars have a lot more grip than before but when they loose grip you can really have huge understeer (talking about the megane). The cars drive less like what we are habituated to think is a racing car, and more like you real everyday car.

    You need to take care of the tires now, because one mistake and you ruin them with a flatspot.

    I'm sure it will receive a lot of critics from the graphical aspect because with full settings it really looks outdated compared with iRacing, which already receives critics from time to time. I would say from the graphical aspect is more rFactor 1.5 than a real 2.0. Not a big issue today but let's see how it develops in the next few years.

    The weather feature is a nice addon, just hope for better tools to create random weather, I'm sure there will be.

  12. the overload was expected and will go faster when more people get the seeding. I will be seeding for the foreseeable future.

  18. Wouldn't it help the overall download speed if when people finished downloading, they would leave their torrent downloader running. Just asking.
