    Already disable special effects but there are massive tyre smoke from the cars. It is distracting. Any help?

    Not possible to turn it off as far as I know. Smoke is tied with rainspray, so turning it off would be an unfair advantage online.

    Yep, it is the same on all tracks, including ISI ones, unfortunately.

    The weather has a play in on how bright the smoke and dust is. In the video looks like the race is in full sun so will always look bright like that, try a race in overcast conditions.
    The HDR plays a lot into the look too. The Automation HDR has a lot of bloom in it, so can bleach out the white making it hard to see through.
    So try a HDR profile with little or no bloom in it.

    Nice driving by the way.

    Wow

    Now that's a sim racing setup!!

    I wish you would do a detailed post on how you set your PC up like that. That's definitely something to strive for. It looks so immersive - far better than a single monitor.

    Congrats! ;)

    Thanks. 2 LED TV's 32" on sides, 1 LCD TV 32" on center, T500RS with F458 GTE ADDON, TH8RS + G27 shifter, a 7" tablet running Dash Meter Pro, a small fov for better immersion. (24). Can be even better turning on "multiview" but the fps drop is so much.
    Computer is a I7 3770k @4.2, 16 gb RAM, 2 GTX 780 AMP Zotac.

    Ive noted this before but i think the f2 give off too much smoke at the start of a race. Its like u cant see at a normal dry start. I only have this on the f2
