    A couple of quick observations about the latest version of this car:

    1. The "new tyres" mentioned in the changelog have successfully fixed the Medium compound. It now exhibits normal behaviour and is just as driveable as the Soft. Thanks very much for that, S397. :)

    2. There is, however a new, thankfully much smaller issue. The Dynamics cars have lost some of their logos, must noticeably the Dunlop logo in place of the front number plate. This is especially odd as the Pirtek cars still have theirs. Perhaps this can be fixed in a future update?

    You're really a good observer.

    Lol, comes in handy sometimes! :D
    I hope the logo thing doesn't sound like nit-picking but it's definitely wrong.

    Hi,
    I'm surprised no one mentioned that something is definitely wrong with this car's FFB. Specifically steering wheel pulls to the inside of the corner instead of turning to the outside when you get understeer.
    Also, can anyone please confirm it has it has the latest QSA model (or CPM - tire contact patch model, that is already applied for Radical and Formula E)?

    I have the exact same problems as you describe,tried all of three times and unsubbed it.
    Got told it’s the diff by one bloke,but I believe something is corrupt between my side and the mod.
    Otherwise everyone would experience the backwards behaviour

    The FFB of this car is very strong, you have to lower a lot the ffb multiplier (for t500rs I put 0.55 I think).
    To avoid clipping.

    I use the civic for the 72 km of Targa Florio.
    I really like the FFB of civic + clio (FWD) : perhaps you are right I don't know : can @S397 (@Christopher Elliott ) can make a clarification please ? Everything is OK ?

    It has been like you described from day one. If you throttle with moderate/high steering, FFB gets reversed.

    I would expect it to happen for more extreme conditions. I have a Honda CR-V and the effect is perceivable in closed turns with elevated grip typical from a parking lot with antisliding paint.

    Not so much time ago someone involved with real cars said it was not realistic. I'll try to find the post.

    Here you have the post

    I do not have enough opinion to draw any conclusions.

    The questions of the community question me.

    But damn it, we can as usual discuss for hours, without absolute certainty :

    ---> Can we have by S397 a clarification on the quality and "veracity" of physics of the Civic?
    @ S397

    More simple more quick.

    yeah the fwd civic has always behaved like that. You have to lower the ffb some to not have such an aggressive torque steer. But i agree, fwd ffb in this title isn't the best. I prefer racerooms, but I'm not sure if theirs is canned ffb or what, i really don't know anymore. I just try go on feel rather than true real to life numbers. If it feels real f&%$ numbers!

    Off topic: there is a similar performance car - Seat Leon Eurocup mod which I find very nice done. Its ffb is more standard.

    i m back...
    was driving the car in lime rock...
    physis are fine just the FFb is a bit strange....
    i mean the strength of the wheel while cornering the vehicle "change" rapidly.........
    the effect of the ffb change affects the way i drive and all of a sudden i find myself at the moment that happens to think that i have somehow at the edge of the apex to MUST change the force i hold my steering wheel............
    not sure if i describe the problem well.
