Why do my front wheels never regain traction in a skid?

Well AC is a game, obviously you expect some odd outcome. The car rotate right & you see a total loss of traction right side before the left side at the end of the footage. When you brake in AC the car rotate from the front. OP had front traction the whole time.

If it was real life. The car would simply run into the wall. I mean it would continue to rotate counterclockwise when applying the brake.
Finally, the “expert” showed up

Look people, the game is broken, this is all there is to it. All of you can sit here and pontificate forever if you'd like (I'm guessing this is a way to deny the bug). Front wheels lose all traction in an oversteering condition above about 65 mph and will never regain traction no matter what technique to recover is implemented.

Persons with actual real-world race driving experience would see this right away, but I guess the gamer corps on here has too much time and ego invested in the AC platform to ever acknowledge something like this. Just please don't ever even sit in a real car, let alone drive it, mmm-k? Thanks.

Assetto Competition fixed this in it's initial release as I mentioned earlier. Kunos simply decided to abandon Assetto Corsa and never update or fix it again. :whistling:
Mod Edit:
Removed insult.

I’ve been racing since 2008 and still think you’re talking rubbish.

In your original video you lift off oversteered a mid engined car towards a barrier and subsequently snap oversteered it to the right, with the two left wheels on the grass. That’s plenty enough to completely overrule anything you can do with the steering.

Every racing games have their weird quirk.

I guess it's the whole advertising that it's more than just a game. It leaves heavy disappointment for an end-user perspective.

Simracers is about stats & progress. You should throw the emotion out of the windows.

Wait what? You're saying that any oversteer situation above 65mph the front wheels lose traction and have no bearing on saving the slide?

Precisely. This has been documented, although it may not affect every single AC vehicle. The LaFerrari and Aventador are borked with it for sure though. The whole issue was fixed in Assetto Competition.

Very much so. Gamers without any real-world high performance driving experience will never know the difference, however.
 
Those with a reasonable level of physics knowledge can always spot b*ll*x without breaking sweat, or editing posts , or deleting videos etc etc etc .
Those with a reasonable level of physics knowledge wouldn't even be having this discussion about a flawed computer game. Why don't you show us how it's done then Jim? I challenge you to make a video with the default AC Aventador recovering from a snap oversteer scenario. Mind you, I'm not talking about a low speed drift video, but a true snap oversteer (if you know what that is), and then use real world recovery technique to prevent a spin. HINT: You won't be able to.

We'll all wait patiently though as you prepare a litany of excuses why you can't do this. :p

Could you show us a real world snap oversteer recovery with an aventador?
I'm pretty sure these cars are very difficult to catch in reality! There are a lot of videos out there showing rich people crashing their Lambo's but I've never seen one saving a spin :roflmao:
