    Yes, I will try the RC and report back.
    Tyres overheating and losing grip is with Gt3, 4, GrC, GrA and pretty much all the RWD cars with or without the new physics and started I think with V1.35 or 1.36.

    Did some testing and it seems like a solid update so far in terms of car physics. Some cars like the M4 GT4, 911 cup 4.0 are still too twitch in terms of steering response and the DTM m3 is more tail happy than the Mercedes but overall a positive experience.

    The new tracks are nice and Buenos Aires alone has so many different layouts you can spend an afternoon learning them.

    Seems I was too harsh and this update is a decent step forward.

    In case anyone missed it, the big summer update came out on Saturday. While there are still plenty bugs to fix and some basic missing elements in MP mode, the cars are getting better to drive and there is now oval racing with new free content to try.

    AMS2 is now averaging better player numbers than RF2 and Raceroom and after 2 years is a playable and enjoyable experience.

    It's only averaging higher because a big update dropped and inevitably people drop in to try it. Let's see how it's doing in a month's time.

    Perhaps. The difference is this time they got record all time high numbers and they are starting to advertise more, so I think it will still be slightly ahead - USA part 3, Spa and Ring historic tracks and a possible official Indycar deal are all coming soon. Mr Momentum seems to have changed address away from RF2 again and RRE is clearly lagging behind now.

    I don´t much care for night racing or random weather but there are a lot of new features like dynamic track grip, other cars bringing marbles on track and the FCY and low downforce setups for ovals, which are all really worthwhile novelties.

    With the disappointment of Nascar Ignition and the delay/possible cancellation of the Indycar game, there is an open goal for anyone that can do oval racing well and cheaper than iRacing and that just might be what makes the difference.

    There´s also a big captive market in PC 1 and 2 players who will surely miigrate to other games when their titles are not sold on Steam anymore next quarter.

    Fingers crossed... despite being a big Raceroom fan, I'm hoping AMS2 can fill the gaps and really well done oval racing would be fabulous. To my mind it hasn't been done well since Papyrus Nascar Racing 2003 Season (fun fact: which later provided the base code of iRacing), which is coming up to its 20th anniversary :eek:.

    At long last Spa 1970 has been released and you can try it in the new RC for free.

    Apart from the Brazilian tracks, the historic versions of the classic European tracks is what gives AMS2 its own DNA.
