I just dl'd LFS this weekend and I have to say I'm already addicted.
I've played NR2003 for a while, and while it's a fun sim, I had the need to do right turns..
Anyway, while waiting for my S2 license, I've been playing online on the demo servers.
I understand that the "demo" drivers don't really care much about etiquette or even racing really lol.. but I'm ok with that as I practice.
I do have a couple of questions that I did not find in the manual.
Tire wear. Is there some indicator somewhere that shows the tire wear or is it just how you feel it? If I set my tires to be changed at a certain percent, will I receive some message indicating that my tires are wearing down?
I guess the same question goes for the wear on components, engine, etc..
In the demo game I tried desperately to wear out my tires by locking the brakes a few times.. sure I can get them hot but it appears that they don't want to wear down. Maybe I didn't drive enough..?
Can I damage the engine by over-reving?
So far it's been a blast, although hard to find a group of serious drivers on the demo servers who actually want to finish a race.
For now I've put aside my NASCAR sim for a while.. so I can enjoy some road driving
Hope to see some of you online soon!
