    very grateful, the clues are great.
    the new materials are quite noticeable.
    It may not be correct to ask with these new gifts, but until what clues will they update?

    The GTE BoP updates have been a long time coming. Very much appreciated, and can't wait to try them out.

    For the time being, however, time to put together a feature video for the new Silverstone.

    didn't that say CAR inertia? I too jumped out of my chair when I first read that...hoping the superfast revving engines were fixed. But Car inertia concerns change of direction and how curbs are handled....I can't drive them til August so somebody please do some testing and report!

    RSR feels WAY more controlable for me now, especially under throttle/off-throttle. Tested the GTE right now on green track with full fuel and some small tweaks + Le Mans Kit.
    I had just to add 2 clicks more wing (results in 3) and make some rake adjustments and it's pretty much controlable and able to push now. It's not an out-of-the-box fix, you still have to adjust some things to your liking, but the RSR was 100% enjoyable and comprehensible right now on Le Mans.

    Further suspension and packer tweaking makes the margin of controlability on throttle and off-throttle even higher.

    I find the brakes to be pretty sensitive and had to reduce brake pressure quite a bit in the setup menu, but things are totally fine after that. Also i have just adjusted my loadcell to more stiffness (had to make it very soft due to foot/ankle problems before, without adjusting pedal travel to that, so my foot is in education right now. So pitch sensitivity could've made the car even more twitchy)

    The first run, i did, left me in the barriers in the first heavy braking zone because the rear snapped on me totally, but after the changes, the car is definetly way more enjoyable, post-update. No confidence problems anymore...

    I register quite good and comprehensible reaction to changes in pitch and setup changes regarding the same.

    Top-Speed in the RSR was higher, than before right now, but this could be down to the fact, that i can run WAY less wing now, before the car becomes somewhat nervous and frustrating in the Porsche Curves.

    These cars can now be pushed again, it seems.

    GTE is FIXED for me, personally, but defaults could need a bit more love.
    Engine inertia seems also adressed, btw. yup. ;) Still a PITA to bring movement to the RSR, though. :D

    Thanks for adressing the Endurance Pack Content, this is my most beloved official content package, what makes and breaks rF2 for me on quite a level, this update is one of the most important improvements (or recoveries) for me personally.
