    [KNOWN ISSUE] Outside wheels smoking out of fast corners

    So, this is happening with a number of cars. Always starting out on Stable set up. Slowly building them up to match each track. Anyway, exiting the fast corners, my outside wheels are always smoking hard. I can't tell if its my front wheels or my rears - maybe I'm turning the front wheels to much, or maybe the differentials are screwed. Maybe I'm just understeering hard. Idk. As speed picks up, there goes the smoke.

    Is that a differential issue? Am I driving the car too hard?

    I also notice this as well and am not sure what it is. I try turning the wheel less but it doesn't seem to have much of an effect

    What Car/track and what tires. Would you mind running a TT so I/we could follow you?
    Bikes wrecked-77 Suzuki RM125, 78 Honda Elsinore 250, 81 Honda CB900F, 2000 Kawsaki ZX12R(2), 2001 Honda F4I, 2005 Yamaha R1. A bike hasn't been made I couldn't wreck, spectacularly, but I'm retired now.

    For sure, I'll do so tonight.

    The latest cars I remember it happening in was the GT86 Rocketbunny GT4 at Sugo (last corner) and the Aston GTE car at Watkins Glen (that long fast right hander after the bus stop)

    Happens to me on Spa in the Ferrari GT3 at Pouhon. I figured it was understeer causing the tyres to smoke as they've gone past their limit and are just scrubbing. If I slow down more and push the car in hard to begin with and then have a gradual line then it doesn't smoke. But if I'm trying to go fast and make the corner a sweeping turn then they smoke.

    I'm convinced it's just a visual bug, I had fifteen minute race with tyre smoking in most corners and temps and wear were normal for the whole race.
