    You'll have trouble avoiding the update. Does it have too much power now? Is it too fast now? I honestly don't know.

    It's a must. The LMP2 are way too fast. The acceleration 200km/h upwards is weird.

    @Slip_Angel Unrealistically fast isn't 'fun' for most sim racers. rF2 is inherently moddable; if you want you can throw a (n unencrypted...) car into devmode, give it 5x more power, twice as much grip, package it up and run it on any tracks you want, with friends as well. Then you can zoom along straights at 700kph and take hairpin bends at 220kph if that gives you a thrill.

    I have a lot more fun driving a car on edge at 100kph on a medium bend, and in fact probably don't enjoy the modern tintops we have very much yet because I haven't found the limits (except when I quickly exceed them and fall off) so I don't get any feeling from them. I got sick of 'raw speed' playing Need For Speed in 2001.

    The Bmw M8 GTE (i dont know if its fixed now) has much less downforce when a car is behind. In Spa @ Eau Rouge i lose control over the bmw if another car is following me (Multiplayer, tested serveral times with real players). Yes, there is perhaps a little downforce reduction but this is heavily noticeable. The following car should have much more untersteer then the first car should get less downforce.

    Yes that is true for me as well,I also don't want car that is faster than factory spec car. What i don't like is say car makes 600Hp but BoP restricts the power to say 500Hp for competitive racing purposes.
    This i don't like since i don't care much about racing but i care about car performance.
    So if this new patch reduces power for sake of competitive racing then it is not what i'm interested in.

    Would it generally be possible to always also update the first post with such infos?
    That would give a much better overview.

    But you don't know how much power it has, so the reduction (assuming there has been one) might have made it correct. What was your issue again?

    but that's exactly what a BoP is for ? to balance the perfomance of the cars for competitive racing...

    Good to know that my speculation on vehicle weight and inertia (which was about oreca 07 according to my last comment on thread->>https://forum.studio-397.com/index.php?threads/vehicle-mass.63766/) were somewhat correct.

    like i said i don't care about racing much,I don't like car's performance degraded just for the sake of wheel to wheel racing,but this update fixes some of my complaints about weight/mass and inertia especially on oreca so i might just download it just for that.

    yes i don't know what power it makes IN-SIM so i wouldn't know but i will for sure notice if there is actually any power difference(due to top speed acceleration etc on same setup)

    That dude: "this is not real, make it real bla bla bla"
    S397: slows down a car that is faster than the real life one

    Really? That's what you take from it?

    However, I've realised it's wrong to treat everyone like they're my age (or older), and I should try to let things slide sometimes. I'll try.
