Subject: I've decided I hate Wheel-2
With these cars I do anyway. Something about this track just wants to make the rear wheels overtake the front, either on braking or when pushed just a little too hard in a corner, and once they start sliding it's near impossible for the robot to regain control without spearing off the track.

Who was it who designed this circuit & added it to the game, and who proposed the idea of a one-car series with no setup??? If this person makes any more suggestions, please don't listen to him.

    Just set in the XML "chillmode" to "true", and it will get all better. Promised;-)

      Heh, it's cool - this series is exposing weaknesses in my robot that I never knew existed, because better-handling cars with more stable setups were able to cope with poor control inputs even when pushed to the limit. The car1 in its default setup is far less forgiving and far more temperamental.

    Just figured it out, but won't tell in public.

      Yeah that little right-hand curve immediately before the hairpin braking zone - it's designed by a madman to cause carnage. Plus the author should have made the final chicane a lot tighter - either that or removed it entirely. As it is, it's likely to be a high-speed wrecking zone when two cars get alongside on the entry.
