Actually, FIA rules state the cars must use factory brake options, so if a car is available with abs only then teams are not allowed to change them out for non abs systems. If the factory has a race only version of the car that uses an older pulse abs system a team can use that but they can't install an aftermarket non-approved system. So my question is serious, how do you simulate abs without using the driving aid in the game menu?? It doesn't appear possible. many rF mods are using exagerated tyre grip levels to compensate however that results in unrealistic lap times.
The FIA GT mod is a perfect example, I have three buds racing in a league using this mod and they claim their lap times are 10-15 seconds faster than real world counterpart vehicles, but they don't use driving aids. Is this a realistic simulation? Not IMO it isn't, I would prefer less overall grip, allow abs if the car should have it, and run more comparable lap times to the real car I'm trying to simulate.
Not sure if I've announced it here before but I am working on an rF mod for the 2006 Ferrari F430 Challenge Pista, the Pista is a factory built race 'only' model of the F430. We have the car running lap times within 1% of the 2006 Ferrari Challenge lap times on known tracks available in rF. Most electronic aids that are normally available on the street legal F430 are not installed on the Pista from factory so we don't include them in the mod, however the real car does have a four wheel pulse abs system so we intend on allowing a low setting of abs for our league.
I've asked the same question at many diff forums, the response is always the same, driving aids are not for real simmers, but F1 grip levels on a V8 Corvette are acceptable?? I just don't see the logic.
and I have no idea where Stettler is, I moved to Cowtown from Vancouver about 5 years ago and haven't been much further than Okatoks since, I'm actually a Sask praire dog but AB is working OK for me right now. Know anyone with some nice Elk roasts for sale?
