lol every time i use one of my cards for iracing they phone me about it, trouble is they sometimes take a few hours so it can be when you're asleep, no answer and they'll send a bloody text which wouldn't be a problem but i've got a long text tone as i don't always hear it in work so it always wakes me up.
best bit is if you don't reply to text they assume the transactions ok, so if i get mugged and they take my wallet and phone and try to buy something dodgy i've got to pray they reply to the text and ask the payment to be blocked
love dave kaemmer's blog about Q circles, first time i've found mathematics that entertaining
If you only just got your first wheel I'd definitely recommend spending some more time in LFS learning how to use it. Then you can try iRacing. That way your whole experience there will be much better.
I'm going to disagree, don't see what using the wheel in LFS is going to do for you since iRacing has different physics and just feels different overall. You're going to have to relearn that feeling when you switch over to iRacing either way. If you've been bored with LFS I think you'll enjoy something new in iRacing.
have a look in the options / controls screen, on the left side under the steering adjustment there is a brake force curve adjustment, try adjusting that, the auto measurement feature is ok to start with but a little bit of tweaking can help tailor it to your personal taste.
if you find you need a different value for each car tick the "custom contorls" box at the bottom left then you can set it for each car
Joking aside, with most cars the braking treshold is between 75-90% and you cannot make LFS-style setups where set braking force low enough to prevent lockups. If you're experiencing lockups much earlier and brake feels super-sensitive, could be that you need to calibrate pedals by fully pressing them once before exiting pits (for example G25 pedals lose calibration if you unplug the USB-cord).
Driver animations would be great, but as they are only useful for replays I can live without them for the time being. Hardly a deal breaker (and they don't look that good in LFS anyway.. much prefer them in nkPro)
Brakes overheating... Does LFS have this? Its so long since I fired it up I cant remember.. I certainly don't remember it ever happening to me.
Clutch overheat.. Ok, you got me on this one. That's one plus in LFS' favour
Live tyre temps/wear... Riiight.. like that's realistic No thanks, I prefer it the way iRacing does it.
when you're viewing another car or do you mean when your viewing / driving your own?
the steering wheel does move when you're in your own car / the car who's driver saved the replay, the only time it appears fixed is when you're viewing another car or if you have the steering wheel unchecked in the graphics options and the car still requires the wheel to be there to present instruments (as in the williams. ford V8 supercar etc).
i assume the idea of the wheel not moving when viewing other drivers is the same as why you can't see their throttle / brake / steering imputs etc, i.e. to keep secret what their control inputs are.
