    P.S. Awww they had me until the guy is on his knees looking at the dirt with a magnifying glass and tasting it! This is definitely an April's fool joke. Ya funny.. right up there with google :mad:

    EDIT: Apparently there's a slim chance this isn't BS. We'll see.. o_O

    Yaw is Not Traction loss, which is what the Dirt oval cars are doing, Yaw is more flight related.

    PS just noticed your a fellow canuck.

    No traction loss pivots at the front and moves laterally at the rear, the data is usually set to Extra1 in SimTools: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/traction-loss.174/

    Yaw is rotation aaround the center, which is common in flight.

    They saying it will come in the June update , but we all crossing our fingers (toes, anything that can be crossed) that they release it sooner. Communities have mounted big pressure on devs to get their acts together, Pcars finally answered the hundred's of complaints on their site by helping steam fix the issue that stoped pcars in steam loading in runtime 1.3.

    Interesting, at first I thought it was a Bit much they actually modeled a Car, despite it being only a Skin and Set of tires....still that takes time to do.
