As some of you know, rFactor2 is my favorite sim right now. They just released their versions of Nurburgring a few weeks ago. This a comparison of a real life driver on the 'Ring in real life and in rFactor2.  Same driver, same car.

Wow... that is unbelievable! I have to check that out on rF2. However the Ring is not my favorite bit it looks astonishing. There is also a version of Rouen btw. :) There is just one thing I really don't like with rF (like most Sims I think): You can cheat with the clutch. As far as I know GPL is the only sim where I actually have to press the clutch to engage a gear (I am using an h-shifter). Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Rudy...  you can check the box "auto clutch" (or whatever its called) you still have to  lift off throttle before each shift... but don't need to use the peddle :)

It's called "auto blip".  The other drivers, real or AI will use whatever they have set. It is a sort of cheat. It does make shifting easier. How much of a cheat it is, I'm not sure. I know I'm not faster with it on or off. I"m just slow anyway I drive.

I checked. There is an option for auto clutch, so you don't have to use a clutch pedal.

amazing!

I just tried assets cross with an oculus rift. The emersion is really cool, tracking you head movement is exactly what it should be. Looking back at your engine in the Lotus 49 is awesome and you really can move your head around hen racing against others. But the resolution in the distance is simply not good enough imho. I sent it back, but whenever they come out with better resolution, I will certainly look at it.
