The brake thing sounds interesting. I posted about the non-linear brake response on the iRacing forums a while ago, and it seems a lot of people hadn't noticed before. I got used to it eventually, but it's nice to be able to play around with it as we please.
I'll keep my fingers crossed that after this update they'll focus on transmission modeling besides finishing the Corvette and GT.
Currently in for Pro Series on road racing side, should work on my SR to secure the spot though. It's just little tricky since Mazda is on Sebring this week which I have never driven before yesterday and I'm going off into fences way too frequently to join scored session.
I noticed Viktor Szabo is 54th in the road rankings, not sure how much he still races LFS anymore.
Think I'm going to give iRacing a break for 3-6 months, it is a fantastic sim and the races I've had have been some of the best ever but I could probably do with the money right now. I will be back though for definite, it can only really get better.
I'm roughly ~140th in the road rankings, I might grind my safety rating up to 4.99 A in order to reach the top 100, but I don't think it's really neccessary and I probably won't end up driving in the Pro series at all anyway
