    It seems we'll get a lot more than I thought at the moment of writing the article.
    Might be that the german nationals are the only ones not updated on patch day :D

    I was really hoping that we’d get some new TCR cars in this update.

    I don't think so.
    We already have all cars except the season 2023.

    I would say ,
    DTM 2023 and Pau is coming.
    They only have to fix the issues with the store.

    Will the AI benefit from the new tyres or do they use a different model all together?

    Hopefully the forthcoming update will be a solid step forward as right now the numbers are not looking good and it is becoming hard to find good MP racing again.

    I think there will be a short-term effect. But without a new graphics engine with day/night changes and changing weather conditions, nothing will improve fundamentally.
    Raceroom has it all, many cars and tracks, favourable sound, will get improved physics and UI but It lacks beauty and variety in the racing conditions.

    I look forward to seeing significant strides forward, although i dont play the game much i still buy the release as i like that there is some competition left for iRenting, as many others have said though... its time to update the graphics engine.. and the car / track models, call it RaceRoom Evo and ill even buy back all the content again.. currently its feeling very 2005...

    The tire update has me loving the Formula Raceroom X22. Holy crap, that car just goes!

    Before the update, the car was quick, but the tires were so tempermental, one touch of the throttle, and the rears barbecued themselves. At speed, the fronts felt vague, and didn't give me any confidence. I was constantly guessing if I had grip, or if I didn't over exert the tires when leaving a corner.

    After the update, the car is planted, the tires are grabbing the track, and when they break loose, it isn't so sudden. I can feel the car creeping past its limits. It's great!

    I don't like driving formula cars, but the X22 with the new tires is by far the most fun I have had in Raceroom. I just might get into racing the X22. If I can find a league that works for my schedule.

    Enjoy while you can. As I understood the car now has too much downforce so that will be changed again in the future.

    Really, you are not helpful with your posts.
    "The WTCR series is terrible! So far I can tell it's broken..." and "Irányíthatatlan"...yeah okay...WHAT is uncontrollable about the WTCR cars? What is broken?
    "Does not work" yeah okay...WHAT does not work?
    My guess is you just drive like before the update and due to the different behaviour of the tires now you can't handle them anymore.
    You really explain nothing and it is of no help to figure out if there is actually a problem. Sorry to be so rude, but the "it's broken now fix it" mentality is everything but informational.

    Edit: Andi was faster and more polite :D
