Thanks for putting this event up on Wed to give us time that have the holiday travels to be able to set a good time.
I don't think its just the power delivery curve. With TC on medium and SC low , it still will spin at half throttle!
It's also twitchy in corner without power on. None of the 25 26 27 28 cars do this. I tried different brake balances, powers, and even lowered front downforce... still it will snap like the back end has drifting tires on lol.
Someone in chat mentioned the Mp4/4 is smoother than this car (with 900 hp!?).
EDIT: scratch that, the mp4/4 still locks wheels even with abs HIGH, and please by design is not right- if you dont want ABS just dont make it an option... Why is it either it locks the fronts or the backs and spins out? I'm really confused by this game engine- but I haven't really played rfactor1 much so I can't say if its how the rf1 engine acts.
The last races when MP4-29 came out had a similar feel, but instead of the rear sliding out, it was the front wheels locking up (even with ABS high) and very hard to get the brake balance right (even with ABS high).
I feel like this is where it's getting annoying...
Why can't we tweak basic suspension like ARB or stiffness? Remember you opened it a bit, and now again its locked.
I understand not giving full setups, but not everyone enjoys driving a car that feels like the tires can either be like sandpaper or ice lol.
I'm not complaining because I am slow with it. You can look at my times.
I am complaining because really, if this car is so twitchy compared to the 25-28 f1 cars, how come the current f1 season is not full of lost control? I don't buy the idea that this car is harder to drive than the previous ones.
Overall, it is not enjoyable. A common thread seems to be that the newer cars are twitchy, like the HSV. If it's a different person than original F1 cars doing the physics parameters, it might explain the difference between generations of cars. I'm not satisfied with the newer cars in general. They look great, but the feel is really strange and unpredictable. It's like like the limit of grip on the tires has too sharp of a drop... Is there a variable that you can tweak for this, or is this built into the models? It might explain why ABS is useless on some cars and why I can barely drive anything reliably with abs off in this game, but its doable (though I dislike it with my bad knee to feather the brakes constantly) for me in some other recent sims. I'm just trying to get down to the meat of this matter... it bugs me to notice "bugs" lol.
Coss, it's not your fault, and I know you can't say anything about it... like the Jag, but can you ask the developers why there is such a big chasm between cars of similar performance and tire grip? (Like happened way back with the caterham- I complained- was told this was normal to spin out on braking w abs on- and then a patch or 2 later, it never did it again- or way way back-years ago, the RX8, on braking did a 180 spin, lol). Something is not set right?
