    WTCR Update.jpg
    RaceRoom Racing Experience has been updated today, including an update to the physics of 2018 specification WTCR cars within the sim.

    Released by Sector3 Studios earlier today for their RaceRoom Racing Experience simulation, the new build weighs in at a modest 190 MB and comes with a number of small updates and improvements to the title.

    When the recent release of the 2019 WTCR pack featuring the latest physics for the game dropped back on July 10th, Sector3 promised players a revisiting of how the 2018 versions have been represented within the game - and now that update is here!

    Bringing new physics and a suitable BOP to allow all cars to remain balanced in performance as per the real world series, this small update does offer an interesting change to the WTCR pack, improving what is already very good content within the title.

    Of other changes to come as part of the small build release, the AI for the WTCR cars has been improved, and believe it or not... further improvements have been made to the audio Formula RaceRoom V8 and V10 cars! Looking forward to hearing those...

    RaceRoom Racing Experience Build 4021994 Update Notes

    Game
    • Fixed some elements being offset to the left on Ultrawide resolutions
    Content
    • The 2018 WTCR car class physics have now been brought equal to the freshly released 2019 cars, and the Peugeot has been balanced accordingly. The Alfa 2018 older bodykit suffers from a bit less downforce and increased drag but this was compensated in BOP (power and weight)
    • Formula RaceRoom Junior - default setup adjusted
    • Hillclimb Icons class - Smoothed gear changes
    • WTCR AI - Improved behaviour
    • Cupra TCR 2019 - Adjusted gearshift sounds
    • Formula RaceRoom 90 V8 - External sounds improved
    • Formula RaceRoom 90 V10 - External sounds improved. A bit more aggressive at high revs and removed an excessive oscillation in mid revs.
    • CUPRA TCR - Added a horizontal structural bar between the rearwing supporting arms.

    There's already a second hotfix :
    Update details:
    Download size = 726 MB
    Client version = 0.8.0.6581
    Client BuildID = 4025606


    Content
    • Fixed the Lada Vesta TCR (esport competition) that mistakenly had received WTCR 2019 physics in yesterday's update. The Lada Russia Round 4 competition will re-open shortly after this push. All my apologies for this terrible oversight! The leaderboard laptimes recorded during the period have been erased.
    • WTCR 18/19 - Further improvements to AI behavior. They should now be a tad quicker.
    • Porsche 991.2 GT3 Cup - improvements to AI behavior. Less rolling over from high sausage curbs, slight improvement on car to car collision detections. Reduced their tendency to overdrive the car.
    • Porsche Cayman CS - improvements to AI behavior. Less rolling over from high sausage curbs, slight improvement on car to car collision detections.
    • Mercedes AMG GT3 - Fixed the right side mirror
    • AMG-Mercedes C-Klasse DTM 1995 - Fixed the rearview mirrors that were showing a tilted world.
    • Spa-Francorchamps - Modified trackside advertisement banners for upcoming competitions
    • Nuerburgring GP - Modified trackside advertisement banners for upcoming competitions

    There´s no slipstream with the WTCR 2018 cars. It is impossible to approach and overtake the preceding car on a straight in the suction, which is possible with the other cars in Race Room.
    But overall the WTCR 2018 cars feel much better now. :thumbsup:

    Oh, it's always been here. :) I think it's just receded a bit as people are starting to believe it'll never happen. :p

    Yep, it is. Hear it all the time in F1 commentary. (Coulthard loves it.)

    Not true. I see and do this all the time in our club races. But if your wing setting is just one click more than the car in front, you will barely gain anything on the straights.
