    Hello, I am trying to convert X2010 mod(made by Simracers) from rF1.
    In HDV file, There are no areas to define downforce without diffuser and wings.

    what should I do ?

    I don't think anything other than normal downforce is possible, so it'll square with speed. I suspect if you try any tricks to otherwise shape the downforce curve you'll succeed with properly-driven tests and open up some exploits for everyone else. With the rF1 tyre model you could have somewhat hacked it with speed sensitivity in the .tbc but rF2 would be more difficult and less flexible (/more realistic!).

    I could be wrong. Does the rF1 mod do anything special for it?

    Thank you for answer, Lazza.
    "body mass" is defined by "Total mass (in HDV file) - other parts mass (spindle, wheels ,etc...).
    I think I should write "true mass"+"downforce with fan(convert to kg) and add new RIGIDBODY to Chassis.ini .
    I'll try it .
    Thank you very much.

    I doubt you can add mass without adding inertia (not the hdv rotational inertia) which will negate the benefits. You may manage to add extra mass to the suspension modeling but that won't yield extra grip, it will just change the required damping at least.

    Hmmm...
    It seems difficult for me.
    Thank you.
