    My questions for Aris:

    - What other changes/updates if any are coming besides the new DLC content?
    - Is this the last DLC? Is Kunos moving on to AC2 after this release?.

    Looking forward to the interview with Aris. Great RD you're hosting this for us!

    Aris: First of all thanks for the 'tutorial' vids (hint, hint) and obviously your physics work.
    Question for Aris: Do you also test drive the real cars yourself before and/or after let's say you insert the mathematical/physics numbers to the AC cars?
    What car experience had the most 'blown away' impact for you. E.g. a classic one or a hypercar?

    Thx! Brian

    Questions:
    - What, looking back at the release of the first Elise - Magione tech demo, is the most surprising, unsuspecting development Assetto Corsa made through the years?

    - Will your next project (whatever it may be) be as open to modding and content creators as AC is? How do you value your modding community?

    My question for @Aristotelis :

    Is the possible to implement the AI controlled car during the race weekend sessions or single race, to select an AI car and let your friend/s to drive that car, while yours is driven by AI?

    A manual turn based race weeekend, so to speak.
    Geoff Crammond Grand Prix Series had Hotseat Mode Multiplayer to play with your friends on the same PC

    My questions for Aris,

    Definitely interested if any other DLC is planned for AC or is Kunos moving onto a new project such as AC2 or another racing title?

    What circuit would you want to bring into AC but have not been able to?

    Thanks kunos for all the hard work!

    Hello Aristortelis,

    Did you ever get a "no" from the manufacturers when you ask for some specific data? How did you get around in this kind of situations?

    How far did you guys go implementing engine mapping?

    If we get a successor of AC, how are you guys thinking about the sound engine? Will we get a big upgrade or we will see just an improvement (I remember Stefano saying something about the sound on the first versions of netKar PRO that the "bangs" we heard were the same as the number of "bangs" the engine was doing (RPM related)?

    This one is just to mess with you guys (AC staff), but...... where is HONDA cars (S2000, Integra, Civic, CRX, NSX)?

    Thank you for all your dedication in AC and wish you all the best.

    Best Sim Racing Developer 2015, 2016 and no doubt 2017.

    Question to Marco but you can answer it Aris.

    During the Sim Racing Expo, when stefano was interviewed by Race Department, the poster at the back with the Porsche on the Green Hell at night, was that a sneaky w.i.p glimps of Assetto Corsa 2?.

    Not going to comment on the cars and track but lets put it this way, I'm in need of new underwear..
