    News post: http://rfactor.net/web/2016/01/07/updated-dallara-dw12-indycar-v1-65-now-available/

    Although it has been updated a number of times, the DW12 really needed this one. The car is much closer to being called 'final' now!

    Steam - Coming soon...


    Changelog:
    - Fix for weak overall FFB feeling.
    - 120" wheelbase default now (with 119" 2nd in list, in order of usefulness)
    - Reduced real road rate slightly.
    - Increase in wet cooling effects across all tyres.
    - Small tyre fix which helps to improve optimum camber angles.
    - Attempt to make AI less prone to cut corners (especially slower turns and very high speed turns).
    - Minor AI physics correlation improvements (less longitudinal grip).
    - RollDamping (in the form of natural / self damping) now embedded into ARB adjustments.
    - Removed 'wedge' from pit menu HUD for Road Courses.
    - Enable pit-adjustable rear wing for speedway configurations. (The last car bug reported by Max)
    - Added toe-offsets.
    - Minor turbo sound tweaks.
    - Added GrooveSqrdEffect with the primary purpose of reducing speedway grip a fraction.
    - A tiny bit less sensitive to dirty air (more so on the speedway configuration side).
    - Leading draft significantly cut too (reducing fore balance shift which cause weird feeling spinouts if someone managed to get VERY close behind) to a more realistic level.
    - Slightly reduced cooling on minimum radiator.
    - White edges on digits fixed
    - Changed "Chevy" back to "Chevrolet".
    - Add 1 onboard camera.
    - Steering wheel hand rotation now matches wheel a little better.
    - Some other graphical fixes.

    Thanks ISI.

    P.S. Drove a few lap at Sao Paolo, car feels nice to drive, and with boxer's real liveries, it is a visual treat.

    Engineer was waiting on some data, got some data, wrong data, so we released. When we get the right data, we'll revisit.

    As far as graphics, not sure the car got much of a look there, this was mostly a physics update.

    Just to be clear I think the issue may be the mesh...

    Great to have ISI so proactive and releasing good stuff
    But with this DW12 update am struggling with what appears to be lack of grip at Silverstone-ISI with default setup - very iceRacing like which does not feel right
    Any ideas regarding dialing in some grip with setup tweaks or whatever

    Greatly decrease rear camber and tire pressure, take away a couple of clicks of rear toe, add maybe 5 clicks of front ARB.
