I like the sounds of that! Need a nearly perfect working vehicle dynamics to successfully simulate setup changes. Laser scanned tracks would be important as well. ;) let me know if I can help?

As far as I know the team is already using laser scanned tracks on another software.
They will have to be converted.

Unless they commissioned laser scanners and 3d artists, I assume they are using iracing. Whose tracks cannot be converted.

Please note that they are not racing on dirt ovals.

The collaboration with a vehicle dynamics engineer is already giving positive results!

Finally fixed the beam axle of the road car.

A lot of work for other games but not really much on WRS? Such a buzz kill seeing we were all pumped for a release by the end of 2018.

Is it going to be mid-2019 before we see something?

Sorry for the lack of updates.
Work progressed during the past days to tune the cars' physics data.

Unfortunately though, despite the efforts all the cars still go from neutral turning to snappy oversteer without warning.

We are trying to debug the physics but it's not easy.

As already suggested here, releasing a new public build with broken cars wouldn't be a good idea.
Another option could be to roll back to the old suspensions simulation. However, the new code is so much more realistic and has a lot more potential, especially for the beam axle, that it wouldn't make much sense.
Restoring the old suspensions code would have to be done anyway, though, to compare with the new one and help debugging.

Apologies.
I'm the first to be frustrated by the lack of progress  :(

Doing the best I can.

Wasn't trying to be rude, just was wanting to see where things were. As we progress in the sim racing world, I see a lot of people get burnt out.

If there's anything we can do as far as testing for bugs or debugging it with the cars we have, let us know!

Thanks again, and we look forward to it!
