    Questions on LiveTrack and weather system

    Just got PC2 a few days ago, so I'm a bit of a noob. I'm gonna skip the cheesy "I'm enjoying PC2 a lot and its very fun" stuff and get straight to my questions, which are:

    1. Does the rubber buildup on the track get affected by where and how each individual car drives on the track, or does it just slowly appear on a predetermined racing line?

    2. Does the rubber buildup in the dry on the traditional racing line affect the grip levels on the same line in wet conditions? (think back to Verstappen at Brazil 2016, going around the outside of the drivers using the traditional line) I think I saw on the Project Cars website it said something about taking different lines in the wet, but I'd like confirmation.

    I'm new to this forum so if I've done anything wrong please let me know.

    My understanding is that that yes and yes; The rubber buildup appears where the cars drive individually, and the buildup area can be more slippery on the wet than the rest of the track. Amount of water on the rubber buildup area may play part in how much it affects the total grip or loss of it.
