    Hello Sector3, hello community.

    I just noticed something i want to share with you.
    Normally i have Vsync turned off but for smoother gameplay i turned it on.
    After that i noticed that all my braking points are different and the brakes locked up earlier.
    Could it be that this depends on the input lag of Vsync??
    With Vsync turned off I have a smoother driving experience, better timings and faster laps.
    But a bit stuttering (frame-tearing) on my Full HD 60Hz display :(
    Can someone confirm/reproduce that phenomenon?

    That's really weird. Do you have some footage to show with some telemetry data at hand showing this? For example dashboard pro has a feature that shows all about braking distance and other details related to braking

    There's some input lag with Vsync ON.
    It can affect your breaking point, but break locks up should not be earlier

    Try setting "Max Prerendered Frames" to 1 in your Nvidia profile (this should reduce input lag to a minimum).

    On the other hand, input lag shouldn't be that drastic as you're describing.
