What a patch! It's a night and day experience. Now, we feel that the car is moving around on four patches of rubber!
Now, I feel when I am getting close to the limit and, if I overstep the limit, it's entirely my fault. I no longer have any excuse about being surprised when the car spins. i was warned.
Another very interesting development is tyre wear. I was using Crew Chief when racing and the Engineer kept informing me that my tyres were degrading in performance. Low and behold, I was really feeling that the tyre were gradually losing grip. This brings the immersion to another level.
In the last few laps of an FR-90 race at Spa, I chose not to pit because I was ahead. Then, in the final lap, I spun the car even though I was careful not to ham foot the throttle. As such, I was way less upset than I would usually be. It just felt like a racing incident.
Kudos to Sector 3 Studios on a job well done.
