    New content
    • Added the WTCR 2019 car class with 7 cars and 26 liveries.

    Game
    • Now allows to bind up to 128 different button ID's on a controller.
    • Now allows to bind each traction control preset individually instead of only Next / Previous TC level controls.
    • The HUD notifications (aka "butterHUD") can now be moved around as well using the "move&scale HUD elements" binding.
    • Increased the rear view mirror y-resolution.
    • Prevented the HUD position bar from automatically scaling to gigantic sizes on ultrawide monitors by limiting its width to 1920px.
    • Changed the default steering lock value for Mouse controls from 8 degrees to 13 degrees
    • Slowdown penalties and giving back of the time illegally gained have been reworked. Added a progression where the more penalties you have received, the longer the penalty will get. Each clean lap will reduce the penalty count by one.
    • Change so the Pit stop menu elements such as Preset and Tyre Compound selectors no longer wrap around when trying to go beyond the last possible choice. (Meant to improve CrewChief's voice commands)
    • Possible improvement for players reporting issues on the game menus (cursor flickers, video freezes, etc)
    • Fixed a broken start procedure of a leaderboard challenge on Stowe layouts.
    • Fixed rev LED's that were not lighting up on Logitech steering wheels
    • Fixed a case where the messages about switching modes for LED displays were not always clearing
    • Fixed a case where the "delayed start from pitlane" message wasn't clearing when french localization was used.
    • Fixed so the MiniHUD can now be moved further on ultrawide monitors
    • Fixed broken bindings on the default Mouse control profile

    Nice work! It looks like the super-aggressive setups won't work anymore. I like the new physics so far!

    The cars should feel more alive on the track and they should reward driving within the limit much better. Overdriving has often been the best way in raceroom, which is on the way out now with the latest physics updates :D

    The real cars: not much, some refinements such as the Alfa gaining some downforce and the Honda engine has a higher rev limit. Tyres are slightly grippier for '19.

    Our versions: Steps forwards in all areas, due to new data, better understanding of our engine, and some new features added to the code. Tyres were a big focus as well as the new gear-specific sequential shift timing.

    Just tested this car, both the sound and Physics are so much better. The Porsche drives way better, it has less "pogo-stick bounce over bumpy roads" like @Alex Hodgkinson called it a few weeks back.

    Best news I could read right now about Raceroom. :)
    Was starting to wonder if I was crazy and the only one who felt like there was something wrong in how easy you could keep control while overdriving and actually be faster as well.

    Haven't had much time to simrace lately but I can't wait to be able to test these.

    Just had a quick race on Slovakiaring with the new Hyundai TCR and had a blast. Balancing the lift-off oversteer just enough to help you turn-in into some of those progressively tightening corner is lots of fun, and you really gain time if you do it right and keep on the limit. :)
    Also the front tyres feel much more compliant on throttle. You still get the typical FWD understeer, but the throttle no longer feels like an traction on-off switch like it is in some FWD sim cars.

    Also big thanks for something that is also becoming a norm for all recently released cars - the default setup. The only thing I touched was the fuel level. The car feels perfectly balanced (like all thi... cars should be :D ) out of the box. :)

    That's now 37 different drivers in WTCR. Quite a grid for AI racing.
