    Superb effort by the team. Simply outstanding. A read of the changelog confirms how much attention is paid to issues raised by the community, and the depth and breadth of the improvements is very very good to see as this sim moves forward. Definitely on the right track (and then some).

    Thanks for the latest update - it looks great. Probably time for a beer or five at Reiza.
    @Renato Simioni - I'd specifically like to say thanks for having a good mix of purchase options available for DLC. It's nice to see a developer who offers their customers flexibility when buying content - it's very much appreciated.

    Thank you for the update!!!
    Just to let you guys know, the Racin' USA DLC isn't on the DLC list yet:

    I was able to find it after 'browsing all', but may be confusing for some.
    Can't wait till I have time to play it tonight!

    You guys are legends. :)

    Good idea but are you sure it wasnt left "ON" at 100Nm in the background?
    Because right now, a lot of cars still feely VERY weird, same as when you leave the Viscous lock on default 100. As an example - Vintage formula, retro formula, Gineta GT4 Cup, Maclaren GT1 and some others to an extent.

    Basically once the Viscous lock was reduced to 0Nm, the LSD tuning felt MUCH more natural.
    Right now, at higher speed you udnersteer on coast ... it goes into oversteer once you cross a certain threshold, usually around 80-90Kmh, Im not sure how you guys dont feel it when testing., the wheel differentiation now feels exteremely unnatural and unpredictable. Before I could put viscous lock to 0Nm and it became really nice, now it feels wrong with NO way to fix it :(

    (yes I did reset all my setups etc.)

    @steelreserv @InfernalVortex maybe you guys could test this in the new update? It really feels like the option was removed without actually removing the locking mechanic...

    So it dose :)

    Setup reset - We strongly recommend users to delete the content of their Documents\Automobilista 2\savegame\(profile number)\tuningsetups , as some old setup may cause game breaking issues with the latest physics developments. Beware also that existing championship seasons will also be invalidaded with the championship mode updates. It is NOT necessary to reset your graphical on controller configurations.
