    I had left your mod unattended because of not so much time for simracing but came back this weekend and I can honestly say now you nailed the FFB for the Ferrari, the setting on steering levels that wasn't doing anything for me few weeks ago now works brilliantly and brought the car at the same level of pure enjoyment than the Porsche.

    really great job here with FFB updates:cool:

    From another angle. Cloudy, rainy, bright sunshine and winds.

    Once we have published the 2021 Indycar beta, we will look into the windshield rendering that was impacted by the game update, and can hopefully roll out an update to the cars.

    Take away from the race; the Porsche is no match anymore for the Ferrari. Not sure what changed as the two were better bop'd before when we raced them last year, but it looks like the Ferrari became very stable and it was already quite a bit faster to boot in a straight line. Before the Porsche was better in the corners (corner exit mostly), but that advantage has slipped away.

    Can the bop be looked at again please, so the two can be raced together without it feeling like a multiclass race?

    The biggest issue is "safely" recreating reliability issues to make the 512S a gamble, without infuriating users. We do have a couple of things in mind for a future revision but aimed at realism, not making it basically a league edition. We will also review what can be done about tires as the realroad system incorrectly lays too much rubber from these, so laptimes drop significantly when they shouldn't.

    For now, the best we'd recommend is adding 20-50kg of ballast to the 512S, depending on the skill level of the drivers involved. We do plan on returning to 1970 as we have other cars to add and model variants, don't worry :).

    Any news on the screen rendering, feeling like I need another fix of these and would like it not to be foggy!
    Thanks for your continued work on these cars.
