    Hi!,
    I would like to know the progression of the grip with the passing of the cars, etc. is implemented in the physics. I have not seen any value regarding the grip of the track and I would like to know if it is implemented how it works or will be for 1.0.

    Thanks and great work! Keep going!

    Currently its always optimal. Hoping this feature from AMS 1 will come too. It's awesome when transiting during raceweekends, etc.

    But it is a wish or is the grip progression confirmed by Reiza in future updates?

    Its not on the current roadmap so unsure. But I would have hoped this is something that would be included in a high end simulation at some point. Especially if it was in AMS1.

    OK thanks.
    If they want to be one of the top modern sims, I think that the progressive grip is something basic. I do not know if the physical engine is prepared for it, if not, I do not know if Reiza will have the ability to add and modify the core, I hope so.

    Anyone know if Project Cars 2 has this feature?
    If it has it should not be a problem in Ams2

    Short answer: Yes, Project Cars 2 has it.

    I don't think that is correct, in Test Day and Single Race I've certainly felt the track grip increase over a session. Time Trial is "optimum" for everything including track.

    Livetrack is indeed working, the visual cue for the track rubbering however is currently broken following some recent road shader changes - should be fixed next week.

    Since currently LT sets track state to "green" with every new session, we┬┤ve elected to keep green somewhat rubbered in - equivalent of medium track usage in AMS1, hence less range to fully rubbered in. Do a 10 lap race against 20 AI cars at Kansai for example and the the change in grip levels will be noticeable.

    It took a few patches for the all visual clues for LiveTrack to fully get into PC2 after release also, but once it was all in it was a very immersive aspect of racing. Rubbering up of the racing line, drying line on a wet track, gravel staying on the track where cars had run wide etc. Looking forward to seeing it in all its glory.

    Thanks for the info!
    I've been watching some videos about livetrack 3.0 and it's just amazing. Ams2 could become my favorite simulator, I can't wait to see the competitive system and everything to come regarding content, I would like content from different most famous classes of motorsport, but this base seems very solid to me and the ffb is incredible!.
    Keep going Reiza!!

    Do you guys know if in pc2 the track would rubber in over a race weekend? Or would it reset for every session?

    This is great to know. Hopefully it is implemented in AMS2 as well.

    Why does AMS2 remove all laid down rubber? I do 20 minute qualy, nice racing rubber line forms, then start the race, it's all gone and track is green with slidey cars again. Same happens in PC2...

    Because saving the track state across sessions isn't implemented yet.

    Ah okay, is it confirmed to be fixed for full release or anything? I always hated that about PC2
