Looking forwar to such comparisons. And most of all, to the comparison with iR NewTireModel. (In a recent interview, AS spokesperson Massarutto avoided two direct questions and just blattered a bunch of hot air).
Kunos deserves credit for raising the bar for the best tire model in 2006, but Massarutto (already infamous for his hype of nkPro), is avoiding two direct questions on the tire model, the most important part of a modern simulation. Unless I'm missing something, there is no tecnical/detailed info on Assetto Corsa's tire model out for the public to read. I compare this with the treasure of technical info divulged during the last year by David Kaemmer and Eric Hudec, even when that was against their short-term marketing interest (something for which I'm thankful to them).
That was well worth the read, thank you. I'm happy it seems to feel this good. I don't mind the lack of fcv or full mode. The option is certainly nice however. If it actually feels that good to drive though, then I will be one happy person.
