I was just thinking to myself today, as I was working, that I should really experiment more with the tire files and suspension types of GP and MX Bikes. Piboso added a multitude of options for suspension, and I am really interested in how the tires are effected, and "rigid" suspension, since it is now possible, would really bring out the changes in the tire files... and then I discover your wonderful tool for modifying the tires properly.

I've got a limited understanding of the magic formula, back in the days of Dolphinity Racer by Ruud van Gaal, I had played around with tire slip and grip with the Pacejka. I'm pretty much oblivious to what it all is, but visualizing it via MaxTyre is incredibly convenient to understand the changes and effects.


A huge thank you, I'm going to start experimenting tomorrow morning with a cup of coffee and a fresh mind. I really want a flat track racing setup on MX Bikes.

Hey grimm, careful that the tyre model of MXB is more complex than the one of GPB and there are many things that are not covered by my tool.

Cheers !

Thanks for the info. I figured if I can get a decent idea of how the tire model works when things are changed in GPB it won't be too far away to change something on MXB and possibly get it a little more consistent sliding sideways around an oval dirt track.
