    I'm aware of that but currently the q tyres are identical to softs. I've been meaning to make them for some time and will have them in the next update. Did teams sometimes still use bias plys in '82?

    Very brave! Max rear wing, min boost pressure, short ratios, lots of short shifting and very, very delicate and active thottle control. You are the TCS!

    I've been working on some tools to help with the creation of the other cars. Aero is a big one - every one of about 120 parameters vary between every vehicle. The aero tool is complete, so now it's time to do some visual caparisons and research of how each variable should be entered relative to the benetton. E.g Lotus front wing rake drag is 1.08x more sensitive that the Benettons. - that is one parameter. I have over a 1000 of these to consider and enter, but my new tool will make this painless and quite quick, and easy to make changes to the whole grid if necessary.

    Lots of shared components are simply copied, brakes, for example are either identical, or nearly identical for every vehicle.

    So, now with the Benetton finished - the base car - not too long. All the graphical stuff is done and the cars are 'in game' just with the Benetton v1 physics.

    So, :), there should be a 1 or 2 hour cooldown to represent how long it took to swap out the Q engine for the Race/Practice engine(s)?

    Goodyears were bias ply, Michelins, were radials, And i think Pirelli and Avon were biasply as well it was until 1984 i think that goodyear made a radial race tire

    Some pics of the last track of this collection and two of the 1988 cars.
    Could be released in a few days now.
    Both cars and tracks.
    We still have to discuss of how far we can (or want) to go with the 1988 cars but still the 1986 season first. ;)
    ANyway, i didn't want to let you stay with just some pics. It's not fair i think lol ;)
    And that could help for the wait of the 1986. (Now, with my work nearly done, i will be in the wait of my Friend @doddynco too. I will understand your patience now lol )
    Cheers

    Well it's been over two and a half years since I started this project, and today I'm ready to release the long over due second car of the 1986 season.

    This car shares a variation of the BMW power plant in the Benetton B186, although the differentiating factor - being tilted 72 degrees on it's side in order to optimise the cars aerodynamics - was the cars major downfall. It could never quite achieve a decent race pace due to cooling problems and gear box issues, and was a project best forgotten by it's designers. However, it's futuristic low slung aesthetic was a noble attempt at a championship winning car, and it's unusual attributes suggest that with the right engine, this car could have had a damn good shot at the title.

    In race trim, the BT55 is down around 100bhp when compared to the Benetton, but this difference is partially masked by the advantageous aerodynamics of the new car, and so it can keep up when conditions favour it.

    For now, it's shares the same sound set as the Benetton BMW, but I plan on differentiating them once I've stopped tweaking the sound following the new sound engine update.

    Please report any issues you find.



    0.35

    - New Car Added: Brabham BT55 v1.05 with full physics

    - Benetton B186 updated to v1.05

    - Converted wing settings multiplier from additive to subtractive - no physics changes but easier to work with multiple cars

    - Improved aerodynamic variables related to ground effect and ride height.

    - Small change to qually tyre degradation, increased grip and tyre starting temp.

    - Fixed a few small errors in the tgm files

    - Tweaked mid-low rpm engine sound

    - Fixed exterior sound processing errors

    - Added front and rear exterior engine sounds

    - Tweaked tyre scrub/skid sounds - exterior missing

    absolut incredible job!! the physics are masterpieces! Brabham is total diffrend to drive across from benetton.

    +1, one of the best physics handling formula mods, the cars feel so lively, thanks for the hard work!
