I believe there is a SuperKart mod in rFactor that is 6 speed.SavantGuarde wrote:Schumi is right the force required to turn the wheel in what he was testing is substantial.
If anyone here is familiar with karting in the UK there are major differances to domestic UK racing and what Schumi was doing. The reason the steering forces are so high is because they are racing on rubber. and I mean that the compounds they use are so sticky that literally a SHEET of rubber is laid onto the track, this requires a particular style to drive but also makes it that much harder to turn the wheel.
Its worth pointing out (sorry if its been mentioned before) but its actually a gearbox (6 speed if I remember correctly) 125cc kart schumi is testing and these are very quick machines on a short circuit. a day of testing in these things can be a brutal physical affair!
Those things are absolutely amazing! Even on the Monaco track!!!
