    What a surprise, thank you to update such great models up to date, definitely going to test it in the afternoon.
    Please don't forgot the venerable Posrche gt3 cup... Also the gt3 roster (although I still haven't got that dlc).
    Great job. and keep at it, that way you keep giving us reason to keep using the sim.

    Any idea when Studio plan to remove the static track temperature?
    New tyres seems to be an important step in this direction!

    Great news. I wondered why the TEST Oreca kinda got left out in the cold with the sound engine update. Now push on lads and laddettes. I rarely drive Porches, but that is the first car I'm gonna test. Thanks!

    Fast rolling starts always result in the game putting the car in neutral when it gives back control.
    This is likely caused by the shift protection as you can hear its sound when it happens, and this
    issue does not happen with cars that do not have shift protection.

    Can others try and confirm something for me. I used the Porsche GTE and after several laps I spun, which flat spotted the tires. I drove a while with a small oscillation but then turned over control the the AI by pressing the I key. When the car got close to the pit-in, I reclaimed control and the flat spot vibration was gone. Can you all try and duplicate that by flat spotting, handing over to the AI and then taking back control?

    Two vehicles in one class. Of course only update one of them. Completely understandable decision, NOT.

    But let me guess. Virtual Le Mans only uses the Oreca right? Than it's a business driven decision. Thanks for the fist in the customes face.

    It took them 8 weeks to update 7 cars so it's about 1 car/week which is not that bad (sound, shift, cooling, tires) and Paul said the Ligier will follow.
