Tire Pressure?

Unread post by Gel38 » Wed Oct 13, 2021 9:46 am

I just had an idea. What do ya'll think about maybe a tire softness setting for the cars? This would be representative of air pressure in the tires. A lower number would give slightly better grip and lower speeds, howevwr, going to low causes unsteady control. Higher pressure would give more top end but reduce grip and add slidiness in the corners. And too high would result in frequently spinning tires.

Surely this would have counter productive effects for 'Grip' & 'Kinetic Friction' ?
Adjusting a 'Pressure' value, as you have explained it, would have opposing effects on 'Grip' & 'Kinetic Friction' rather than a parallel effect wouldn't it ?
