  • BMW 1M: New setup, stiffer bumpstops and springs for bottoming problems. Better balance
  • RUF RGT8 GT3: Safer bumpstops to remove alot of the bouncing from early contact on bumpy tracks
  • Caterham SP300R: Slowed the AI speed to close match theplayer. No changes to the player car. Works great
  • Radical SR8X/SR3: Slight drag profile change. Moved more towards rear. Helps stabilize the back end in high speed
  • Ginetta G40: Slowed AI speed to match player car better. Stiffened front swaybar 1 notch to reduce oversteer, Increased FFB strength
  • Ariel Atom V8, 300: Added a different rear carcass to handle the rear heavy weight better instead fo sharing it with the Caterham R500. Reduced wear as reported on WMD forums
  • LMP1's, Audi R18: Adjusted default setups to work at Lemans without dragging the skid plates or running out of gearing. Top speeds 188-190mph now with the defualt medium (5/5) wings. Was previously only getting 175 from bottoming. Handling not really affected. Still handles great at tighter tracks. Also tested at Oulton Park
  • Supercars: Pagani, Maclaren's, Gumpert, Merc SLS, Audi V-10 - More tweaking of the tire caracass. BoP changes so the P1 is a little faster than the Huayra. Other car got tweake sto for drivabiltly. Suspension gone through for caster and geometry, bump steers and scrub raduis. A general making sure all the cars work and make sense with the newest tire
  • FWD, 4WD cars: New front geometry with negative scrub radius. Take what Casey did even further. Seem to have solved the weird feel of the FWD cars FFB and tucking in under power now seems to work at least a reasonable amount. 4WD suspensions got some of that plus the front roll center was higher than the rear (a-arm angles) which was probably causing the up on 2 wheels reports from the Lancer
  • Formula C: Added latest carcass to rain tires. Tweaked wet compound to suit. Reduced differential lock to help last bit of turnin understeer., Changed the steering geometry for more ackerman. Noticed this at Azure circuit. Low speed understeer. New tire carcass to handle camber and temps better. The outside of tires were hot with more than enough negative camber. Small setup change to suit.. New setup for newest tire. Stiffer rear springs. Shortened scrub radius to 20mm. Lowered 4th, 5th, 6th gears to be more usable with the defualt wings. Set defaut tire to be the latest
  • GT3 Cars: BoP Adjustments. Shouldn't be so clear now as to which car is always fastest. Most got small aero drag/downforce adjustments. The Mercedes got more power as it didn't match the listed power and it showed in game. Lots of work on the default setups first before any adjusting. Fwiw, I was fastest in the RGT8, then the Aston, Mclaren,Z4. But all cars for me are within 1 second. Tested at Dubai International, so I'm sure the cars speeds will be more track specific. SLS should do well at the longer tracks. No changes to the tires, although I'm pretty convinced we at least should add more cold drop off. First we'll test this
  • Ford Mustang Trans Am: New suspension geometry, removed double caster, changed to front steer. better rear axle geomtry to handle the drive shaft torque. New setup witha better shock package. Damper knees changed to 60/70 and 70/70 F/R. Developed a new bias belt tire carcass and compound that made more sense to me. Having driven a GT1 Camaro thats very similar to this I can say it more closely matches how they feel. They were extremely easy to drive and were softly sprung and well damped. Handled the power with no drama. Awesome car to drive now. My less than alien times match pretty well with what they were doing at RA and Watkins Short back then

  • Eifelwald GP: New autograss excl , updated CSM , material tweaks to make dirt into mud to match autograss , fixed weird sand overlays on Muellenbach, updated broadmap to remove dark blobs , updated grass 2 to make it a muddy version of grass 1 so the autograss sits on it correctly, updated road edge to match
  • Monza GP: New wet weather setup for road (kerbs wip)with new puddles texture, added reflection flags, updated kerbs textures, adding edge overlays, tyremarks, new texture and trackedge for outer roads, fixed flickering and dissapering shadows from treewalls, new night lights added, New raceline and corridors. 4-5 seconds a lap faster than the previous
  • Azure Circuit: Fix of tilted normalmap, LOD and occluder adjusted, optimizations on csm, fix of duplicated grass meshes issues, found new gaps and fixed, adjusted instances files, further reduced base triangle count, another optimization pass, overdraw reduced and polycount reduced further (64K triangles removed), New pit lane path to fix the AI Not negotiationg properley and Player getting a cut track. Ther was an out of order waypoint near the exit that somehow got there. fix for broken viewer occluder and distant meshes reduced further, base statics instance count reduced from 64 to 47 and instance count reduced, fixed placement bugs found across the track, armcos splitted and LOD setup, fix of mesh issues microgaps, fix of gaps found around the track and at background buildings, skydome seawater optimized, more advert boards added also to occlude sidestreets, adjustments to occlderflags, optimizations removed 81K triangles, removed unseen 1208 statics, removed 105HWinstances, removed 1208 unused statics and 105 HWinstances
