Whilst it is appreciated that we have some data and some very handy analysis tools for pCars I cant help but think this could be enhanced further. In modern times of real life & sim life data plays a very important role. I decided to to do a little comparison between rF2, AC & pCars. As you can see pCars falls rather short in this department. Like many other I am someone that really enjoys setting up my car using good data and analysis tools and have become a much better race driver because of this. What are the chances of some extra data channels in the future to see a more complete picture?
