Cars
Dallara F3

  • Corrected a significant problem in the aero calculations, particularly as you adjust aero packages and wing settings in the Garage. Adjustments will now be directionally correct (reducing wing angles will reduce both downforce and drag), and should be more in-line with real-world performance.
  • Updated the damage model to prevent the aero balance from moving too far when damaged.
  • Removed the option of fitting front torsion bars with a 0 diameter.
  • Currently, there is a known issue where the tire warmers are not working for this vehicle during Race Sessions. We are still investigating, and do not currently have a timeline for a fix.
