    Hello guys,
    I'm back from a one hour session in Serre Chevalier.

    Amazing experience with a great instructor. Started on a front 2WD city car (Fiat punto) fitted with studded tires on the front and snow tires on the rear. Then a AWD Subaru Impreza with 4 studded tires. What an amazing and pleasant experience ! Maybe I'll have a 3 hour ssession in marche, if weather permits.
    I know fully see the use of traction loss... I'll have to make a new version of the sim to have traction loss to feel accurately the grip and control the slide. I will defenetly miss it when I'll be back home. :)
    For the traction loss, I'll reconsider the simrig maybe completely, maybe partially. I'll also go through the 2DOF conversion topics covering traction loss addition.
    Cheers !
