Tires are an empirical model, not physical. The tire width parameter doesn’t do anything either (and radius only changes radius - nothing about the behavior of the tire).What about the tyres sidewalls? Those don`t matter for handling too? Or they are not connected to rim sizes? Or real life physics don`t apply in that aspect of the game?
Got that, only have problem with tyre width - wouldn`t it affect the contact patch for size and shape? Or is it a 1 point model of a contact patch?Tires are an empirical model, not physical.

Once again, it's an empirical model, not physical. The tire's represented by equations, not its shape/size/construction.Got that, only have problem with tyre width - wouldn`t it affect the contact patch for size and shape? Or is it a 1 point model of a contact patch?
1. Take a look at the Kunos "setup.ini". See the "min=15000" for the ARB? I forced myself to go a bit outside of the "setup.ini" only for the ARB so the car gets rid of the uncharacteristic understeer.
2. Front roll centre of both 250F`s should be exactly what Kunos did as I did not change the length and orientation of any arms.
4. Solid rear axle with no ARB is exactly what Kunos did, but I see your point. And don`t agree with it - the DWB would have change drastically the dynamics of the rear wheels laterally and DeDion is known to have the wheels parallel at all times.
Where did you get the roll centre information from (besides Kunos)? Access to that information for other cars would be invaluable.
There`s one thing you got right - I`m not into this for ratings.respect for your background for physical relations in AC. I don't have those because I'm (not yet) committed to digital products. But the reality is different: Your power curve (@alekabul) is wrong, as is the torque curve. the torque curve is much worse! Kunos' curves are met here good.
T2 goes for 240 BHP @ 7,300 rpm and 270 BHP @ 8,000 rpm. Peak torque was at 5,500 rpm.
The bore / stroke ratio was surprisingly heavily oversquare at the time and was therefore designed for high speeds. Kunos' 250F T2 achieves consequently better lap times.
The determination of the yaw rate remains to be checked at Kunos' T2
I could make a van do the same lap times as historical data - that's the easy part.There`s one thing you got right - I`m not into this for ratings.
If you insist on the "real life" racing data being far from my research then try this - find and summarize lap times from the 50`s and compare those with times of AI on accurately recreated AC track in similar weather and track friction. Prove me wrong by revealing mismatch of data available to everyone.
I gather you like that constant car wobble that Kunos did. Well, maybe a matter of taste.. I hated it and got rid of it. Not a biggie. And most certainly not a "masterclass" of any sort.
Would be keen to work with you in figuring out how to perfect your mod?
