"Image Space Incorporated has released two brand new preview video, showing off some new tire features of their upcoming rFactor 2 simulation.

The first video shows the tire wear and flatspotting in action, the tire wear has been increased by 100x to show off the effect of a 100 lap run in one single lap.

Also visible are the tire temperature readouts at the top left of the video. The second videos shows the tire deformations as the car goes over the curbs and moves around on the track.

rFactor 2 will introduce various improvements to the modding-friendly simulation including weather, driver animations and a refined graphics engine alongside plenty of current and historic motor racing content."

I think rFactor itself is a very uninteresting project. But it'll be another great platform for the mod community :)

The stock content should be a lot better than rfactor 1, The majority of the content is going to be licensed so it should be a much better package, both in graphics, Physics and Content.
ps. This will give iracing a run for its money, and many other sims, not even counting its modding potential.

Those cars look like something Jim Clark would have been driving back in the 60's ...I loved them.
