2 posts criticising aspects of the physics is not spam.
Didn't intend to spin it out (ho-ho) but now you've insulted me, a rebuttal:
The worst aspect imo of the grass problem, JackB, is when the rear, loaded wheel catches sometimes as little as an inch or two of grass, usually on the exit. Even with a major coutersteer and backing off the gas, it will 9 times out of 10 spin you like a top. You cannot not know this!...It happens to people all the time. That should really get you a bit out of shape and slow you down, not spin you like a top.
One thing I wonder is that with the best will in the world, a sim physics will be a simplification. Maybe, if there was realistic levels of grip, it'd be boring. You don't see these extreme slip angles in real life mostly. It's all about feeling subtle balance changes, which aren't communicable in a sim setup.
Got any names for the Skippy drivers who say it's spot on?
And DaveK isn't an objective witness. Although, I accept the problem pointed out about non sim drivers judging sims.
Sorry for the spam/incorrect thoughts.
(Btw, my glory/disaster comment wasn't meant to be a sarcastic poke).
