Tyre type and affect on launch and traction control

Post by Grabla66 »

Besides changing the tyre circumference, what effect does the Tyre Type switch have on launch and traction control?

Tyre type is really only diameter.

This can have an impact on launch if launch is vehicle speed based as opposed to time based as the fixed table of speed vs rpm will no longer be correct with a different size tyre.

Would be nice if there were different speed/rpm ramp tables to accommodate that.

Obviously the cal switch that changes tyre type, can be linked with other traction or launch changes though, so depends how you have those configured
