    Just because it has been changed to simulate the correct components now doesnt mean it will drive very differently all of a sudden. Its still a race car, so you will still be able to change its behaviour drastically with your setup.

    I respect your choice, but you do know that the new update would have been tested by Nic Hamilton as he is still a consultant for SMS. I doubt the new update would be applied without thorough tests. And my input was not dictating how the car should drive, I merely pointed the inconsistency of the car data against the official setup data used IRL ( Renault Sport as source ) and which most are locked/sealed IRL, from spring, damper, gear ratio, LSD ( except alignment for example ), Casey did more research and found the correct Mk4 data on his own.

    Someone who have raced the Clio Mk3 and Mk4 IRL would surely pointed the differences too, as both have different aspirations, different suspension ( spring/damper ), different gear ratios, different LSD as well :) The only similarity is both has no rear ARB.

    Some excellent updates there. Really impressed with the work put in. I didn't see a fix for the random T300 rotating to 10 o'clock bug that I get a lot when restarting races, but who knows, it might be gone anyway.
    Hope it rolls out soon.

    Version 3.0...I'm looking forward to it. No surprises, but especially the photomode on replays and switching cars...THAT'S WHAT WE REALLY NEED.

    Also, the enhanced weather, setup and pit strategy systems...that's going to make the game even more interesting!

    Although I would like to see timed races in Quick Race Weekend...and maybe the ability to choose which car classes to race instead of being fixed with prototypes-only, GT cars only, etc.

    Regarding the last three patches: is anyone still getting the flat tire bug after pitting with LMP1? If so, has anyone found a work around?

    Exactly, they are very different. I think it's important for a simulator to have the numbers right or, if that's not the case, allow you to change the numbers to the correct settings as you please. Up until 3.0 neither could be achieved, and now we get it out of the box. :cheers:

    BTW, this is what Casey had to say after changing the settings:

    Also take into account that this was probably a very easy thing to change, so it's not so strange quick wins like this are done faster while more difficult problems take some time.

    EDIT: Oh, and really looking forward to getting that BMW 2002 Turbo. :D

    No kick player option for host or text chat on PS4 yet. Looks like Sony won't be getting money from me for a PS Plus subscription just yet!

    Friends leaderboard is the big one for me. Makes TT a whole new ballgame.

    This is the third bullet point, but it may only be for MP.

    Good thing they got friends leaderboards, I care more about beating my friends then too 100 times :D I'm also interested to see the rain improvements, this is a great patch and PCars is moving in the right direction.

    I know the rain part was literally just to compete with DC, and that is good. All of these car fixed and corner cutting fixed, etc. they really do care about making this a good, competing game :tup:

    Me too! Hope that they look as good as DRIVECLUB's rain effects. I'd also like to see a better rain drop effect for the cameras as well, they one we have at the moment is lacklustre.

    Well, damn. That's a hell of a patch. I think the reality is pretty obvious - these are a lot of components originally intended for release, but with PCars delayed so many times, they eventually had to bite the bullet and just release it. I think some of these massive patches were always intended - coupled with added feedback.

    I thought I was going crazy, when I completed a race on 12 laps in first place and made it to the finish line in first place on nothing but fumes. I then look at the race results and was DQ! Very happy to know this will be fixed. The racing in this game even with the bugs is amazing.

    This morning my hud disappeared in nose cam.. Nothing did in the option screen that allows you to move elements and switch them on/off would work.

    Is that a bug or have I pressed the wrong button or menu option ?

    I haven't played pCARS for a couple of weeks. Looking forward to trying it again though, once this big patch hits

    I was thinking earlier in terms of how I'd compare pCARS to FM5 and the upcoming FM6, using cars...

    The Forza games are a BMW M5: Made by a huge company in a state of the art facility. Big, shiny, reliable and capable of a rapid turn of pace and capable of being exciting when pushed

    pCARS is an old school TVR: Handmade by a bunch of enthusiasts in a shed, rough and ready. Highly exciting to drive when it works properly but doesn't work properly often enough

    I'm glad that I have them both in my garage though, so I can choose which one to use, depending on my mood :D

    Any word on the Velcro infused body panels being fixed? If that is fixed there isn't much left to complain about. :tup:

    Wait a minute.... Text chat is not avaliable on ps4 yet, but on PC and Xbox one? Or you just forgot to mention the other two?

    While I am generally very pleased with the list, especially the tyres there are a couple of glaring omissions of current bugs.

    * PS4 Crashing regularly
    * PS4 Cars hitting invisible barriers and losing FF and tyre temp
    * PS4 career races locked and inaccessible
    * Being able to lock your default car's livery (rather than random) for all events
    * MP sessions lagging when players join or leave
    * Flags that work properly
    * Handbrakes that actually do something
    * Overly complicated FF settings (even looking at new implementations. I would have suggested a system based on Basic/Intermediate/Advanced - obviously what we have now is advanced and work back from there ;-)

    Stuff that needs to be added:

    * Kick function in multiplayer
    * Multiplayer free practice while waiting for event to start
    * Ability to change cars in MP once having joined track before race start
    * Lobby text chat
    * Lobby descriptions or comments
    * Ability to lock lobby to what type of tyre and wether tuning is permitted or not
    * Ability to use custom race numbers (0-99 mandatory, 0-999 preferable)
    * Ability to save more than one tune per car per track (i.e wet or dry set up, sprint/endurance)
    * Or as above but be able to have more than one car tuned differently
    * Community events being able to watch replays of top ghost laps (so we can see the cheating easier)
    * As above but being able to save that ghost replay and reload it later
    * As above being able to save/reload friends ghost replays
    * A map of career mode so people know what is ultimately involved
    * In career a description for what event is necessary to win before being able to unlock another event

    I guess I'm going to bite the Bullet even though my T300 hasn't arrived. Can't be much worse than What I think of GT6 at this point.
