VLM GTPC conversion Physics Teaser V2

Teaser for the upcoming VLM conversion being worked on Historicsimracing organization.

    This is a first teaser for the new physics i am developing for these early group C cars.

    In my humble opinion, Bias Ply tires haven't been that well understood or represented in cars with high downforce in simulators or mods. My continued work in for historic sim racing organization and their mods on classic cars has been focused on finally bringing these highly anticipated road warriors of yesteryear to the virtual landscape, avoiding the typical "if it has tons of downforce, it must be glued to the track" mentality, using real data and real numbers to produce real results. Get ready for the best porsche group C car in the world of simracing! 35151525_10209961557676042_6115133500711501824_n.jpg

    The 956 doesn't have a turbo model yet, but its handling characteristics are final, and you can bask in all the ground efect bias ply tire glory!

    Please do the Lancia LC2. The early one (83-84 with the small headlights). That's all I ask. I remember seeing it go up against hordes of 962's throughout the 80's. It would usually grab pole and then explode after a few laps in the race. No matter: It's still the most beautiful classic Group C car ever made. I've always wanted to drive it.

    I tried the update "Niels physics vs Wilks physics fix" and found a big problem: Niels physics gets overheating very easily. I tried to edit the related engine.ini to reduce those heating rates, but problems are still there. Could you fix it?

      Just turn damage off.

    A lot of grip. The original car physics is better.

      What original car? The only thing that's changed in my version is the turbo physics that were implemented. The car still achieves realistic laptimes and top speeds.

    You're clearly onto something. I was looking forward to someone converting this mod since I think Historical proto racing would have been a great addition to AMS.
    You start on a good note. My only remark is about gear shifting. Does it have to be that conservative? This is a 80's car. Was h-pattern racing gearboxes this slow to operate?
    Really looking forward to the RC version. :) Thanks for your work.

    Great Job!
    would be great if you could get in touch with Niels Heusinkveld: he worked on the physics and mentioned that he would share it with you! (https://youtu.be/4P2GX941oPA?t=59m32s)

    Can't comment on how authentic the handling is, but it's certainly one of the best car mods in Automobilista.
    Really fun driving characteristics and a good challenge.
