Well... "Just as good as LFS" ... I'd prefer to compare to real life, where getting out of the drift feels more intuitive.

I do agree there's an element of skill involved, and I've drifted alot more in real life than I have in the sim so far, so there's that... :-) But LFS still feels more intuitive and "right" to me so far.
From my experience what I've drifted IRL with my S13 (street tyres) and Skyline (semi-slicks) I actually think the AC tyre model feels more correct at all times compared to the overly forgiving and overly smooth LFS.

The only part where I have something to complain about the AC physics is to got something to do with the suspension and ultra-low speed vehicle physics relating to mass. When you come to a quick stop from low speed in AC, the mass of the car seems wrong as it just suddenly halts without any body movement, almost like a huge RC car. Some bumps when bottoming out the suspension (especially on the standard Z4) also look a bit strange sometimes, but oddly enough they don't feel weird when actually driving.
I agree that LFS is overly forgiving, and that is a combination of many factors, no small part the mathematically smooth track surfaces. I like the bite of the AC model, but wether it's FFB or tire model or something else, the slide recovery end up in tankslappers far more often than in real life.
On the subject of oversteer, I can't be the only one that thinks the drift-spec e30 plus semi-slick tyres multiplied by Joux Plane = the best combo in the game. Desk punchingly frustrating mind you. I've been attempting the reverse direction.

ps: I have an HD7770 1GB, so where, in your opinions, would the range of cards actually worth upgrading to begin? (What's the minimum spend, realistically, for it to be worthwhile?)

I came from an hd 7770 1gb and now have the HD 7970 3GB (which is like 250 euro's) which is a good step up. Definatly worth it. I wouldn't go any lower than that tough to avoid disappointment.
How do I proceed when I want to install AC twice on different HDD using Steam?

Let's say there's going to be quantum of mods which will interfere online gaming so I will have to have a separate install for multiplayer races...

This just came to my mind this evening. I think it's not so easy with Steam.
Maik did a tremendous tribute to Tomek right after tragic news were published, but somehow, as an editor I felt a responsibility to do a tribute video by my own, as well. It's no doubt that it has been a big honor to meet our Tomek, to race along with him, to chat with him and to share common values - simracing and motorsport, in general.
I would like to steal some precious time from you and invite you to take a look at my project, which I dedicate to our Senna, our friend - Tomek.

This is Assetto Corsa based project. Driven around Tomek's most favourite track - Imola with powerful Ferrari 599XX. Enjoy.

I know Phil Diaz has teh replay of Tomeks lap with the GT3 Z4 around Imola, maybe worth asking him for it.


Edit : didn't read the last bit... yea... that bit with the huge text...

I could be way off base here, but would the steering geometry of different vehicles make quite a big difference to what you'd feel in your wheel when recovering slides? Or is that not a big factor compared to others?

This is a known issue - the physics engine actually STOPS when you slow almost to a stop, and when you slam on the brakes all the way to a stop the physics cut out before rebound occurs.

I have no idea in the world why the physics aren't just running all the time but hey...
Yes, geometry play a big role in feel through the column, but I've drifted different cars, and they all have the same general behaviour.

generally speaking ~200€ is the sweet spot on the price/performance ratio for graphics cards these days

eg these

http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/1079?vs=1041
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/1079?vs=1038
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/1079?vs=1037

all of which will be a significant upgrade
I have an R9 270X, and it's a fantastic card for the price!
Great skins! I wanted to make that Petronas one, but I decided to do a K&N livery instead.

I also made some skins lately, though I didn't post them in this thread, check them here.
The Lotus Evora S - Petronas Syntium is marvelous! Great job
Hop they fix those Evora S and GTE front tires, looks so ridiculous

I need to know how to make a website like that where i can put my skins all organised.

It's only a simple Wordpress site with a random theme.

edit: whooo hide steering wheel option
yeah..a lot of ppl was asked for that option ...
in other hand, i cant imagine myself doing lap without wheel

...me neither, but I do not need two !
eh no more jumping at Joux reverse at bumpy section there is crazy landmine,
even front axle got smashed, tested with f40 and 458, e30 was fine

Quote from kars19 :Hop they fix those Evora S and GTE front tires, looks so ridiculous

They fixed GTE but not the S model, weird...

Top job on that K&N skin. Wow. That looks so hot.
