Huh? I understand that brake temperature has no effect on the tyres, but track temperature of course has. And AFAIK temperatures currently only affect the tyres in terms of cooling them with the ambient temperature. But there's more to it
Especially If they think heating tires will give less grip Can't wait for that, all those :riceboy: heating up their tires, going full speed to first corner, steer in and end up with lot's of understeer into the first barrier they meet
But i think that laughing is going to take a while though. :sorry:
Of course they won't die out, we'll just have a bunch of threads popping up saying "OMG Scavier ruined drifting" as users won't be able to cope with the new physics (although they might not change all that much in the end).
But why? thats what i dont understand. what will be that dramatic change that ppl wont be able to drift? as far as i know,we are going a step ot two closer to real life tyre physics.---> cars have no problem drifting irl arent they ?
Tire will have more grip, hence require more skill to drift from entry to exit, compared to the current soap tire model which is like drifting on snow once your tires are hot. That's why there are lots of foolish people "pre-heating" their tires against pit walls because they do not have the skill to properly drift cold (realistic) tires.
Actually, with the current tyre model, your tires heat up while drifting very fast, like in 2 laps... I'm used to drift until they pop... (and that means soapy) It's very annoying to pit after 1-2 laps.
I'm not going to have problems with new physics ofcourse. I want it all as realistic as possible so let the new physics come! It's just that if the new tire model is done right, pre-heating your tires would give you even more grip and that most drifters will then crash into the first barrier they'll meet when initiating a drift
That's interesting to read. I always thought it was common sense here to know that the tyre heating model is pretty wrong. I guess the biggest problem is that you pit out with tyres 10°C below optimum temperature already.
It's not about whether the tyres should pop quickly or not, it's about grip. When you heat up tyres 30'C above optimum temp irl you do lose some grip but your high-performance tyres won't transform into soap.
