    Motorsport says they want to have multiple branded series like this. There's no mention in the article of supported hardware but I would assume PC and hope for consoles.
    It's already not looking good. David Schildhouse was given early access to NASCAR '21 to stream on Twitch. The game featured multiple oddities and glitches, most famous of which is where his car was teleported to pit lane on the white flag lap and then spent the next 10 hours making repeated pit stops while he slept. I'm sure this will be fixed, but not a good look for a publisher who is trying to muscle its way into the sim racing space.

    Watch it here from the 4h 27m mark

    They got themselves in some trouble. Can they patch themselves out?

    Red engine?

    As far as I know, this is built in Unreal Engine, with the rFactor 2 physics engine underneath that.

    Itís most likely a problem of it being early access. If itís still like that on full release then itíll be a problem of low quality product development.

    Finally got the desk clamp for the CSL DD. Took a surprising amount of time considering I can ride my bike to where it shipped from in like an hour and a half.

    I really like it so far. I don't know that I feel *that* much difference from the CSL Elite 2.5 I was using before. It feels a bit stronger maybe, but there's still that same force but subtlety that the Elite had and, as expected, none of that gear-driven notchiness. It's incredibly quiet, I don't think I heard a single sound out of it, but I am getting a bit of an unnerving *clank* out of the wheel when I hit a curb or something. I think it's something in the quick release mechanism, presumably it's not actually a problem, just a bit annoying. It's a bit taller than the Elite but significantly narrower, which means it's easier to store away when I take it off the desk. That is a huge bonus for me. I also really like that they use USB-C for the USB connection now, which means it can share a USB cable with my Honeycomb gear.

    It actually does take some force to turn the wheel. It tops out at 8Nm, I'm afraid of the 25Nm from the top of the line DD2 wheelbase.

    Happy with the purchase, and happy that I think I may have found a home for the old CSL Elite wheelbase. It's the PlayStation version and someone at work has grand schemes for when GT7 comes out.

    It has been reported that the version distributed to all streamers is indeed the launch version, with the day 1 patch included.

    And this is how they have responded to the posting of and reporting about all of the issues:

    red engine is what those polish cyberpunk developers are using.

    i wouldn't think it was the unreal one as that one is used in that trucking sim.
    acket.

    Many years ago, I once drove an endurance race in a go-kart (6-hour, with a team of 4.) I do not know what force it took to turn, but it was significant. I pulled a muscle or something in my abs and could barely get out of bed the next day. Within the same year, I also had the pleasure of driving two older Formula Fords. They were way easier to steer than the kart.

    At what point is the force realistic? I am not sure having higher force would be better. Of course, it depends on the car, but I can't see modern race cars being super difficult to steer.
