I'm pretty new to rFactor 2 (not just pretty) and one of the things I like to do is try & simulate old races. So, I'm sitting here trying to setup the weather conditions for Sebring 2016 when it stormed so hard they had to red flag the race for about two hours. I'm playing around with the conditions just to see what extremes you can get & I notice the wind speed goes all the way up to 447 mph! Ummmmmm wut? Hunh?! Que?! Come again?! Daf*q?! Exsqueeze me?? Pardon you?!

Is there a reason the wind speed goes this high? Is there a Formula Tornado or GT Cyclone series I am unaware of? I mean at 447 mph even ol' Doc Brown couldn't have gotten the DeLorean up to 88 mph! Not with all that weight that car carried!

Seriously though, what's the deal with the ridiculous wind speed?
