    Wow...

    Have you driven in the rain on worn tires?
    Have you driven on a wet track on slicks?

    In real life, not in sim...

    Yes mate, I own Msport z4 with a 306bhp ( tuned from 258bhp ) on 19" rims, 255/35 I know what is like to drive a car on slicks on the track ( Bedford UK ) and in the rain. I can tell you that you don't get thrown all over the track when driving 60km/h. I don't know why PC2 came up with this idea of you being not able to control your car at such a low speeds. Try it yourself and than you will find out what I mean

    racing slicks + any standing water = no traction.

    Of course but not to the point when you can't drive through the puddle on the straight doing 40mph

    and it doesn't aquaplane?

    Stupid physics, indeed.

    Idk why u bring up something that has been already answered. And tbh you are not corrent. I'd say there is 60/40 driver/vechicle. Watch any motorsport and u'll see a driver complaining about the car that is undrivable.

    If it's 60-40 driver according to you, then fixing the driver will result in a greater gain, no? Or are we assuming the driver is absolutely perfect and without fault?

    But they are professionals and "undriveable" to them is maybe 1.5 seconds off the pace. It's all relative.
    F1 drivers calling their car undriveable is a bit different from an arm-chair racer who's struggling to drive in a game.

    Maybe you need to learn to tune the cars or stop cooking your rear tires. Look at the telemetry, analyse your problem instead.
    Or provide the data for forum members to analyse it for you.

    Look there's no need to belittle Paradyski (even though he comes off as very impolite). He has a point. The puddles are definitely bugged. I've verified that if the puddle is deep enough, you aquaplane at almost stand still. I drove through a puddle, while turning, at 30km/h. Yes, 30.. and had a massive long aquaplane of about 10 meters.

    That is a bug. Plain and simple.

    .. oh, and I had wet tires on too.
