    Is there a official blog or any sort of information on how aero is simulated or implemented in RF2?
    Like there is ultra chassis info or tyre physics info but i never came across aero physics info.

    Try reading the Skip barber HDV file in devmode.

    Sorry for the overly brief response. The hdv has the body components separated into sections with aero parameters labeled and with comments in that particular file, so it's a good starting point. Any more specific questions you have can be asked in the car modding section.

    Except for a couple of refinements, the aero parameters are unchanged since rF1 so you'll find lots of information on the internet.

    There is a lot of stuff for aero in HDV thats for sure, IMO it is quite detailed.

    For example I was surprised to find parameters (and learn about such phenomenon), for aeorodynamics effect for body intertia, it is very interesting.

    Yep i searched on goggle hdv file and found a dev blog on brabham bt44(one of my favourites).from that blog alone i got so much information and now i can appreciate the sim(calling it RF2 a game should be a crime) way more.
