Part of that is the tyres, but yes, the car is very unstable under braking if you are still turning slightly. I found the street tyres overheat very very quickly (half a lap of smooth but quick driving = 106 degrees), so the car is very oversteery. Changing to slicks seems to make very little difference to lap time, but they are very difficult to overheat, and so the car maintains a better balance for longer.
Suspect there is a bug with the street tyres - too much 'grip' causing overheating with the other parameters of the model, or just low a number in the 'rate of heating' box.
Creepy cause I mostly suffer from understeer issues. It handles a lot like a badly set up FZR in my opinion. Understeers at entry and midcorner, and oversteers on the exit. Good thing I was a big fan of that kind of handling, at least used to it.
Yeah, it's quiet a challenge and rewarding when you get the hang of it. E92 M3 is now my favorite car, trying to keep improving. Will have a go at the 458 tonight. Hope online racing becomes available soon, would be cool to race with fellow LFS'ers! (and have a decent private server)
Aight, so to my defence - I am a retard, deal with it!
But - when trying to drive the GTR BMW car (or whatever it is called), I just... I just feel like I can't see shit! The cockpit veiw is so, well windshield is so small that I canot make out what's going on around me even with moving the head etc.
Others with same experiences?
For now I am doing the panzer / hood (what you call that) cam.
It really shows off the quality of the physics and has the best FFB of all the cars so far.
I just sat down and played with the setup, doing 12 lap stints, tweaking a bit,another stint. Ended up running 120 laps I gained time every stint, the car just keeps giving you more and more as you learn its handling, which is sublime.
I think this has to be one of the finest sim cars ever made.
The other lovely thing about driving for a few hours is the dynamic lighting. Starting at 8.00AM when its quite dark and just driving as it turned to full daylight really added to the immersion factor.
The more time you put into it, the more it keeps giving.
