    Confirmed. However I experienced it only with FISI so far. When I set the car as low as possible it was scraping almost everywhere and lost control on few occasions when bottoming out was too harsh in a corner. When ride heights were set higher scraping sound was gone for 90 % of the time only when going over curbs, severe elevation changes and on heavy braking was noticeable again. Straight line speed isn't affected very much though. Difference might be like few kph at the end of a straight between scraping the ground even at 120 kph and not scraping almost at all. :)

    However it is a good step forward. I was missing this a lot and now actually having it makes me feel cuddly inside. :p

    EDIT: After longer test with DW12 the difference is bigger though. The actual handling changes a lot but you can barely hear the sounds of bottoming out.


    Also other things that were fixed and improved I'm very happy with. Looks are on the money right now (also racing at night possible again yay). Handling might have changed a bit with some cars. Not sure if it's me, placebo or sth really made the cars behave a bit differently.

    Install worked great. Tried F2 (the modern ones ;)) and to me i think i feel a lot more of this car, steering seems more like the way it has to be feeling.
    Thanks guys. (@Tim enjoy your days off)

    Ciao Max

    Would anyone set up a race (i dunno how to set up a server), free to join for everyone and we call it the Max1000. As our community tribute to Max and his family.

    I don't see the AIs on the track (They're Ghosts) I blocked the pit's exit and I don't see the AIs get out

    I see your purple bar is about 80%, do you experience any lagging?

    When my purple bar gets that high the game is nearly unplayable.

    Auto Update worked for me.

    R.I.P Max.

    Some nice physics engine updates. Any car we can test the boost?

    We had 8-9 racers auto update and the server done in 4-5 minutes. Raced many sprint races without issue. Nice job ISI!
    Thank you Max for all you did over the years!

    What are these physics changes? I don't see much in Tim's note.
