    What about the 3% difference in top speed between the fastest and slowest car?

    Anyone else feel like the tire model for the GTE cars is broken? I find on a lot of tracks I'll go into a corner and straight away as I turn the wheel the rear tires overheat and I'm fighting oversteer. Tried making changes to the setup chasing understeer and stability with no success.

    Pls fix the center mirror in cockpit from the Corvette C8. R, they show me the clouds in the sky in VR.

    Not a thing as far as I'm aware of.
    Of course you can always come up with a video showcasing this.
    This isn't iracing where a minute slide sends the tires beyond melting point and you are left scratching your head wtf just happened.

    You can do it yourself, maybe shift + buttons to adjust seat position.

    This isn't iRacing where track temperature matters, either... :)

    Will these aero changes ruin current setups?

    No, it influences following another car only.

    The only car without the "Aero draft drop off" is the C8.R. Did this already include that on release?

    BTW...
    >Added trackconfig.ini to upgrade.rfcmp. Aero upgrades should now be forced based on track.
    I tried just before in my server at Fuji.
    But clients can use "FORCE SETUP", so server could not force aeropackages at last.
    is that after build update?

    And again no fix for car descriptions so that all AI liveries can be selected. It's a shame that one liner fixes are not done for more than 2 years now. Not to mention that this is a paid content, and although single player is not in focus....this is really quick and easy fix and shamefull that I have to manually make this changes every time update is being made. Please fix this.
