    Has anyone else noticed a difference between their sims?
    I have the most detail in RaceRoom Racing Experience, then Assetto Corsa, then PCars 2
    While AC and R3e are pretty damn close, PCars is just not as detailed. Even using Sim Vibe, the vibrations are not as detailed. Anyone else noticed this?
    Any remedies?

    No one running these sims has an opinion or observation?

    Do you mean the tracks? I don’t have much to compare but the Monza high bank oval seems to have bigger bumps in AC than PC2. Haven’t had as much time in sim as I wanted here recent. Cleaning up all my build mess.

    yes sir tracks, So I feel PCars 2 has MORE defined "rolling" meshes but less smaller details than say AC and R3E.
    I will tinker with my rates more this weekend, but I just cannot (As easily) get the details in the track as I can with other sims (Even PCars 1)

    I am under the impression that AC is more realistic than R3E and PC. Do you have any effects on? Like the bump-effect in AC?
    And what about the driving itself? For me, R3E feels just like a lot of effects, not like a proper sim. It's also a lot easier to drive because of that.

    I think you have to be aware of what is realistic and what feels nice, is that a possibility for the difference?

    For me AC is better than PC and RRE, the felling feels more real on it than the otters, but I never tried iRacing

    I have to add, after trying Assetto Corsa Competizione, AC feels like a toy. True, the steering (damping) feels far from perfect, but you can feel all other factors allready and it is amazing. Huge improvement and I think the best sim there is out now.
