Reiza Studios have again dropped a new update for Automobilista 2, deploying hotfix build 1.0.5.6 to Steam earlier today.

Key changes include the addition of the Nurburgring 24h Endurance Layout, various AI changes and key art updates - as can be seen in the change log below:

  • Added Nurburgring 24h Endurance Layout
  • Added support to order Vehicle group filters alphabetically (original sorting)

  • Adjusted Traction Control base slip to allow for more slip before system kicks in

Really enjoying the racing post hot-fix but I can’t think of when I didn’t love this fantastic game. Your efforts are very much appreciated.

Cars feel better now.
GT3R Porsche with 100% slip doesn't feel realistic, it still drives on rails when mashing throttle in low gears in short turns.

Anybody here an idea how to fix the real steering wheel(Logitech 923)
vs ingame steering wheel non -synchronization for most of the cars?
I tried custom....now driving with the G29 config. I hope there will be a G923 configuration soon.

?

Cheers

The gt3 porsche is still very bouncy. Not undrivable around nords anymore though. With merc gt3 the first fast right hander on nords is super easy casual flatout. In the porsche the car gets these weird bounces so you need to get the turn in right or the car kangaroos into the shrubberies. Funnily enough hitting the kerb there hard does nothing to it but the hard cornering just puts it into pogostick mode. Plus the car seems to have terminal high speed understeer. Also the trick with the porsche seems to be to use full tanks of fuel for fastest lap time. Can we get ballast so we can add more weight to make it even faster? lol.

The helper springs' main function in real race car is to give the suspension more droop which helps with kerbs and uneven surfaces while at the same time it allows to use stiffer main springs. In ams the helper springs just make the nose go up higher as the car pogoes up and down which probably destroys all the front aero as the splitter is too high from the ground all the time.

Still the most glaring issue is the BoP in the GT3 class... how they released those cars with the McLaren miles faster than the others is beyond me. But maybe that's just how it is in real life, I've no idea. But for sim racing it means there is only 1 choice of car you can drive.

Anyway it was encouraging to see 11 drivers on the grid for our GT3 races at Kyalami last night, so the new cars are getting more people playing AMS2, which I'm delighted about.

If the wheel is properly calibrated in the game, the wheel should be in sync with all cars.
I agree on the tyre-slip.

Not different than in Iracing tbh: there's always one car faster than the other GT3 cars, so you'll see races with 95% using the same car out of 4 or 5 GT3 cars available.

The Porsche Cup has a very bizarre front train... Still bouncy, and the balance between front and rear grip is pretty strange !
It feels like the car is often bottoming, even if not.

Tried that a couple of times and no, it (still) doesn't work.

Have you seen the speed difference? Cars in the same class should at least be competitive, not a one horse race.
