Couldn't see or feel a single difference with .5.1 or .5.0, but that's probably just me, being insensitively enjoying ACC to the fullest it can give right now...and still scoring only 250ish on the 488 Hotstint 9 minute at Zolder.

Who cares, I had fun.

OK? I'll ask again since on official forum no answer is coming:
Is it possible to give the control to AI in ACC?
I want to watch races since my wheel's broken.

the ffb of acc gt3 car is very different from what they create in gt3 ac car. its suppose to be more realist and close at the real thing. they many more details and feedback from racing team than ac.
if you didn't read the post on the kudos official forum, you should!
personally at the start i found him bad but whit time and practice, its now better! :thumbsup:

anyway ffb is really a matter of taste. i saw some guys that love forza ffb :O_o:

[Da capo] My biggest problem (among many) is that ACC's tires still don't feel like pneumatic rubber devices. They lack the 'springiness' of rubber (technically, 'hysteresis;' what makes a rubber ball bounce); they feel like wooden tires on a sandpaper road.

Anyone getting a ghost like image behind the car. Can see it in replay & also tried it in chase cam to see if it was still there... it is.
