    Does the Adaptive AI keeps learning? So the more/longer you play the better they get adapted to your level?

    Oh yes.
    Make no mistake, using the tool is a short-cut for giving the AAI a decent starting point.
    Once there though, the AAI will continue to adapt. So if you start getting faster, so will the AI (up to a point, naturally).
    Which is one of the reasons I'm so enamored with the whole concept.
    Yes, there are some quirks and the odd pitfall, but dear lord is the end result worth it.

    Nice, thanks... will they also adapt to less bumping my rear? I made in the beginning some miscalculation on their braking points. They tend to brake a bit early so I bumped in them from time to time. Now I know this I don’t bump them anymore. Although I notice that they still hit my rear from time to time. Could by my error of course, wrong braking point or wrong race line. Just curious..

    Not directly.
    Despite the name, the Adaptive AI doesn't adapt to you as such. It doesn't e.g. look at your braking-points and adjust to them.
    Nor does it try new lines based on your driving..
    What it does is use the predetermined difficulty levels, and adjusts these to suit your pace.

    On the other hand, adjusting to your pace will, even if by accident, also mean less bumping since the braking points are more likely to be the same as the players, given that the pace is roughly the same.
    So there will still be the odd bump'n'run. In my case it's very rare by now, maybe once a month or so.

    A fact that is very annoying for me. I use a manual clutch and a shifter. Maybe that is the cause that i'm brake a little bit too early. The pace of the AI is ok, but the braking point isn't it when you shift manual. In my opinion. ...or this is my fault as well. ;)
