    The best thing to me isn't the video, but that there will finally be a new issue of autosimsports. Feels like the community gets back together. Now, the only thing that is missing is good ol rsc. :cool:

    Why is the wheel shaking so much on the straights? Does FF cause this or this is just particular "driving style"? I drive with FF turned off, just center spring is on, and my MOMO will not tolerate the need for such crazy wheel movement if this is needed to just keep car straight. I drive as smooth as possible.

    It's shaking so much on the straights because the surface isn't up to the current standards of modern circuits. What you see is the FFB's reaction when it meets a bumpy surface :) .

    It hasn't. The magazine stopped publication since the 'glory days' of simracing. But it's coming back with a new issue covering Jon's observations of rF2.

    There are more small media outlets which do have the beta, not just Jon, but as we've said, we aren't doing a lot of marketing, these folks just asked to do it. We didn't go to anybody and ask them yet. :)

    Indeed! If any of you have the MGM movie 'Grand Prix' (the movie used as inspiration for the Monaco movie) there actually is a drivers meeting scene prior to the race where their main point of conversation is the bumps. And in real-life, these same bumps almost led to a boycott of the GP by the drivers.

    In relation to Jon, it may be worthwhile reading some of his articles about rF1 (on the AutoSimSport site mags). It'll help you gain respect for his upcoming views on rF2.
