New build makes BMW M2 more realistic

More realism, better graphics: In build 1117, the Studio 397 made a few changes to the BMW M2 and Porsche 991. They also improved the visibility on the Nürburgring and updated the materials of the McLaren open wheelers.

In the new build published on February 17, the developers adjusted the BMW M2 C2 to make it more realistic. One of the things they changed was to soften the steering links to reduce vibration, lower the centre of gravity, and readjust the dampers. The vehicle should now feel closer to its real counterpart.

New visuals for McLaren open wheelers

Another nice change are the improved visuals of the McLaren open wheelers, more specifically the MP4/8, MP4/13, and M23.
