    Thanks for the response, Patrick.
    Yeah, as i said, the way it handles may be due to the specifics of the car, which i'm not familiar with and how this data works in SCE physics environment.

    Also, according to the footage Gringo posted, i turn very similar amounts in game, so steering ratio is very accurately simulated , it seems. As seen in the below footage, the car also behaves very similarly to what i experience in game, how you can drift and catch a slide and so on...so physics seems to be very accurately replicated as well. It's just the handling it is a bit too light for my liking, but i guess that's just how the numbers translate into SCE. And also the car feels quite different than any other vehicle in the game.

    One more thing: Is it possible to make a left side driver variant available, like in the video above ?

    Yes, I found that thanks Patrick, but not till after my first drive lol. The default was negative, which I noticed on my first drive, so I went to reverse the FFB settings and found your file. As soon as I corrected it and went back into the game, man, I am not kidding, it took me back - I know others are not liking it, but I cannot believe how close to real this feels - back to the good old rear wheel days. It is awesome!
    This thing is going to be one of my favourites, thanks to you and everyone who put this together.
    I will definitely be setting up an offline season in this :)

    Yes, video Gringo posted here shows something really similar of what I have just run at Cascavel.

    Did you put the indicated realfeel?

    Hey Patrick, one small problem - maybe I am going mad, but I can see my mirrors in my mirrors!

    Yes, It will be fixed. That is why I advised to use virtual ones ;-)

    Hmm, lets wait a minute, not sure we are talking about the same thing :roflmao:
    Can you put a screen?

    Hi Keith,
    1. Go to your PLR-file and open with Notepad.
    2. Then go to the following section:
    [ Graphic Options ]
    3. Search for this line:
    Self In Cockpit Rearview="0" // add values for any that should be visible (0=none): 1=rear wing & wheels, 2=body & susp, 4=cockpit, 8=steering wheel (15=all)

    As you can see you can choose what should be visible, for the Caterham i have chosen for "0"
    For other cars you can change this setting if you want to.
    PLR-file can be found in GSC2013/UserData/yourname/..

    Grtz,
    RSV

    Thanks Hummer, but what I am trying to say is that something is wrong - I can actually see the mirrors in the mirrors. Surely that should be impossible.

    It's no problem, as I can still see the rear view perfectly well, but I thought I should report this as they surely should not be there.

    Just tested the car at Silverstone and Brands Hatch, and it is... brilliant!

    Don't understand what the criticism is all about unless one expected it to behave like a high downforce car.

    I have never seen a car pleasing everybody anyway. This car demands to have a soft and careful driving , a bit like the vee.

    exactly what I am thinking Jyri!

    Sorry Jan, but this comment seems a little of target..

    the only problem I found is brake distribution the default setup, with to much power in the rear and little to the front, and together with engine breaking it unsettles the car in the turn in. just put 80:20 in brake bias and problem solved. even so needs a good trail braking technique by the driver.
