    Perfectly capable of either ignoring posts, or defending myself if needed. No need to become involved in anything.

    Oh well we can`t complain as it was a nice surprise to find a new build today, I really wasn`t expecting that.

    The F2`s will be soon I`m sure.

    Done a little more testing too and there really is a good performance increase with this build, for me anyway (and some others too)

    I`m intrigued by this soon to come track though...

    I wonder...

    I think something is changed in tires but Changelog do not say anything about tires.

    Tim, please, I think we need to know when (and if) something has been changed in the tire physics, especially for modders that are working on cars. Of course I understand we don't need to know internal testing changes...but when a release introduce different car behaviors (with same contents) could be VERY nice (and usefull) to get proper informations about what is changed.

    I'm 100% sure something is changed because I feel tires are different now and AI-HDV lap times are 3/5 seconds slowest.

    Thanks...:)

    Great build. Only bug I noticed was headlight flickering.

    I made a short test with the Clio and i feel that it's more stable and I felt that the ffb was improved too!

    I've less sliding/lateral grip, especially at slow speeds...so less grip on cornering and more twitchy behavior almost everywhere...

    I don't know what Tuttle thinks about changes but I like it :). Cars feel better in this build, at least for me.

    Honestly I don't care if you feel better or worse a car. I'm talking about Changelogs to understand why the car is different. My point of view is different than your as I'm working on a Car mod...We need days to rebuild a tire, so if something is changed we would like to know. :)

    Thanks for the feedback

    I'm not so bothered about graphics etc, the physics & "feel" is my first priority, looking forward to trying this build out tomorrow!

    My reply was to Adrianstealth. He asked for tires, not for missing changelog.

    I don't know if there is a change in the tire model, but for me the Clio is still one of the best and funniest car to drive of all sim. :)

    Yeah...but you replied to a question for Tuttle...so me. :)

    Btw no problems. ;)

    I think this stuff is very important for everyone, ISI, modders and users. A change in car feelings without a changelog report is like a random change. Nobody knows what is changed...and why...and if it's a step ahead or a step back...a feature on or a feature OFF...a fix or a bug...or a placebo.

    So..please, give us any information about physics changes. Thanks.

    First time that I have done an "update" usually I do full reinstall.

    Everything is fine for me, so far, only done about 7 laps with Clio's on the Forest track. It seemed that I noticed a change that a few others have suggested--- tires feel different. (for the better). I was only going to do a couple of laps cause I needed to do other things, but the tires felt so good, I couldn't stop on lap 2.

    Update does reset most of the graphic settings, didn't do anything to other personal settings.

    I have never really bothered testing max fps per build as I use the GPU Sync
    for 3 builds now and as long as that Fraps counter does not dip below 60 and
    things stay smooth I am happy.

    There are a heap of graphic glitches I have seen but frankly they rarely bother me at this early stage.

    Maybe if rFactor2 felt uninteresting to slide a F3 around Mountain Forest they would. :)

    Saw nothing on that, or anything that would cause that... Possible that there is a more fluid feel due to better FPS? Though I will ask.

    Try uninstalling and reinstalling the mods and see if they get rid of any glitches. The shaders are rebuilt the first time a track is run, and doing that will make sure you have new ones.
