Great post Kaynd.
This is the issue which should be fixed a long time ago, but unfortunately looks like proper tyre physics is not devs key point.
Limited setup changes will only mask the holes in the physics.
Fact: "At some point" people lose interest and get interested by other products.
Fact: "At some point" sends the ball so far ahead in time you'll forget why or who had thrown it years before in case you happen to find it years later.
Fact: LFS has again the opportunity to compare itself with real world car (common one this time, the scirocco) and again the solution presented is half-baked like so many in LFS these recent years. Not even suspension geometry/type is of same nature. Fantasy la-la land continues.
Fact: The excuse over these years for half-baked, has been that after months of idling you work your butt-off for a month to make an artificial (self imposed or not) deadline. "there is no time for that" becomes the easy and handy excuse. Since GC there was no time to code a proper suspension for it? Shouldn't it have been a priority?
Fact: Confort is an enemy of will.
Fact: LFS will remain the sim that could but rarely is.
We don't know all the changes that will come in 0.6A, until we do, there's no point ranting about non-existing changes. Especially in this thread. Let's try to see something good in getting new content
