    I discovered this circuit on youtube, I find it super original !

    Besides, I notice that I am not at all disoriented compared to KARTSIM seeing this video Onboard POV !

    Finally bought these karts : I simply love them, the feeling is very convincing, racing is fun, until now I tried only two or the tracks, and one of the karts, there is a lot of racing ahead to master these little karts. What I like more is that they are perfect for some quick racing : little need to make setups, just some tweaks, and you're good to go. My recommendation, at least for G27 owner is to raise minimum forces quite a bit ( 7 8 %) because a lot of FFB stuff happens with the wheel straight, and you need to feel it, because often you are wheel straight but in the middle of a turn, differently to larger vehicles.

    Hey peoples...

    when are we expecting to see some new tracks for KartSim? I was kinda holding some hope for Whilton Mill this year as there were photos of it back in 2017 :)

    Keep up the good work

    A professional says it's not very realistic anyway.

    “I have not driven this particular kart in rl “
    Well that’s a good way to start to video off if your looking to see if it’s realistic

    I’m not saying it is realistic, but hey

    He's driven many types of karts, including similar ones to the ones in the video. If you actually watch more than a minute you see that his assessment is that they are far more twitchy than any real kart he's used across many years of experience.

    I’ve driven loads to karts too
    & think kartsim is fantastic

    My motion setup helps a little bit with feeling quick jerk movements of the kart

    rofl, Steve Alvarez Brown has never been a professional. He's only raced club championship's equivelant to the girl scouts. KartSim's physics were created by Karting Champion Harrison Scott (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harrison_Scott) who is an actual pro, and worked at I-Zone at Silverstone as the Kart Instructor.

    I’ve driven many types of cars, but no one would take my word if I said Hamilton’s f1 car drove like crap

    I would mate, honest :D

    I think karts especially, but in general fast open-wheelers more than other cars, will always be difficult to 'feel' properly unless you start doing some sort of motion rig (or seat) setup. And still the cues will be different to real life so will require some adaptation. And it's still not real life, so it won't quite be there.
