    Fresh update.

    1.2.4
    - Fixed Mercedes SLS GT3 Hard Tyre short name
    - Fixed high resolution timer disable notification filling the log
    - Improved ABS, cars will now have correct braking distances while braking on a straight line.
    - Changed all electronics.ini files with updated frequencies for ABS and TC for all cars.
    We advice modders to use RATE_HZ=250 and SLIP_RATIO_LIMIT= from 0.14 to 0.20 for optimum ABS, also use higher frequencies for TC
    - Changed brakes.ini for various cars to improve braking.
    - Experimental aero ride height values and stalling on Pagani Zonda R, Huayra and Ferrari 599XX to better simulate what happens in extreme curves like Eau Rouge
    - Corrected Mercedes Benz 190E DTM steer rod ackerman geometry
    - Adjusted Steer ratio on Lotus Exos and Exos S1
    - 3D driver preload animation starts earlier on 458 GT2
    - Up to 27% more placebo effect ;)

    Cheers.

    That more a dev joke in my mind... :p

    "A remarkable phenomenon in which a placebo -- a fake treatment, an inactive substance like sugar, distilled water, or saline solution -- can sometimes improve a patient's condition simply because the person has the expectation that it will be helpful. Expectation to plays a potent role in the placebo effect. The more a person believes they are going to benefit from a treatment, the more likely it is that they will experience a benefit " (source)

    They finally killed that stupid steering wheel rattling when locking tires. And now I run higher FFB setting than before and my GT3RS feels better then ever with AC and catching slides on Z4 GT3 is easy and fun. Can't wait for a better wheel. Braking does feel better I guess.

    Must be that placebo effect. I'm perfectly fine with those latest updates.
