    My sim racing aspirations have greatly cooled since the peak of the pandemic, so I'm glad I didn't make any hasty choices. But it seems your use and desire completely justifies such an investment.
    All or nothing here!

    Iíve decided I will finally hop into iRacing too. Like really really this time I promise.

    I got a Live for Speed newsletter the other day. It's still a thing, I guess, as they seem to release updates every few years. It's still on version 0.6. I briefly tried it last year after I got a new computer. I still like how it drives. Too bad that it did not go anywhere. It probably still has its die-hard fans. I'm not a big stickler for graphics, but it looks dated, even to me. If Blerpa thinks iRacing looks awful, he must think LFS looks stupifyingly terrible.

    Niels Heusinkveld had a go of it on YouTube a few months ago. He says it still has the best tyre physics of all the sims.

    I have to agree with that. You can actually see the tires deforming during corners and bumps if you watch closely. There is an in-game tire temperature and tread wear black box. Tires wear unevenly across the tread (insides wear faster, obviously) and feel different as the race goes, not just, "Oh, I'm losing grip." You can also flat-spot the tires. You can see and feel how the tire wear and temperatures affect the car.

    It's wild to me that the sim I played on my laptop in college ~20 years ago has the best tire physics. I'm just going to hope that they aren't the same now as they were then.
