As former LFS driver and iRacer since 3 months I have to admit, there are few things what are not so good. But iRacing has weekly updates and eventually they will work on them and improve it all better - and for sure you don't need to wait 4-5 years.
It's taken ~4 years to get to the stage of handling that LFS was at in 2003... The weekly updates don't seem to be addressing any of the core issues. I get the impression that it's slightly worse than it was on release.
Besides, I'm currently playing netKar Pro the most anyway. Still need to try rF2, but not holding my breath on that one.
It shocks me so much more that there are plenty of people actually defending that behaviour to the very end and claim it's also possible in real life. It's absolutely amazing how little criticism people can take.
The video is just showing the 2FMSH exploit, what does it have to do with iRacing in general? iRacing knows it, and most of the people driving it knows it's a big flaw in the psychics. The problem is how to solve it with the amount of data they actually recieve from Williams.
I haven't really read the thread about this on iracing forums but wasn't there a post basically saying this "magic antispin hax" happens even if all four wheels are locked and not just the fronts? If that is the case the problem has nothing to do with data with the car. It is the physics engine itself that has a bug.
A bit like lfs had the high nose aero bug and so forth. Or nkpro had some forces in wrong direction with one of the new formula cars when it power oversteerd. Things happen. Just relatively harmless error in the code. (which can be really hard/simple to fix...)
And as far as I remember there have been countless cars and sims where this magix spin hax works. F2000 in nkpro was the most obvious example I can remember but also most ISI based games with too much drop off had this. The only thing with iracing seems t be that this magix hax works even with all wheels locked...
Haters gonna hate but I'd be willing to bet that the almost same thing happens in lfs as well. So don't get on your high horse just yet...
Shouldn't matter, as LFS has a unified system for all cars (where iR does not). Therefore if one doesn't do it, they all shouldn't do it.
Just tried this on rF2 (have used it on iR and NR2003 before, never in other sims though), and it doesn't seem to work. If I do it on entry into the corner I can stop the rotation enough to save the car from spinning (as the corner rotates). However if I try to do it on exit or in the middle of the corner I just end up stopping the rotation and flying off track or I spin. So in other words it behaves similar to LFS and nKp and not like iR.
And grats to them on Bathurst, now I want driver swaps even more.
