Shift2 has a better driving model, granted some of the cars in S2 sway etc, but as a sim, this is an outright farce.
Before anyone says, "hang on, why not give it more time"....my answer is, "for what?".
All they had to do was eliminate the sway and work a bit on the excess oversteer from Shift2, and you'd at least have a very good simcade model, but as it stands, pcars is just plain bad.
The brakes suck, completely lifeless, and the driving model is all over the place depending on the car.
So, if you're a casual racer, you might well enjoy this, but I can't imagine any sim fan rating this, and as I said, they could've had the driving model ready by now simply by fixing the S2 problems and instead of building more bad cars, just build a slow one and a fast one with good FFB and driving model.
The sway in shift 2 made it undriveable, I couldn't play it anymore it angered me so much.
When I played build 124 I thought it felt pretty good, but needs some improvement. Then a month later, a large amount of FFB updates. The feel of the wheel is much improved.
When you say the driving model is all over the place depending on the car, well all cars handle differently than others. Especially when the cars maybe Formula A, B, touring cars, Le mans racers, etc. Maybe explain what you mean by this?
