Kunos Simulazioni continue to tweak and tune their racing simulation with Assetto Corsa Competizione Hotfix 1.8.8 released to download for the PC version. Any owner of a classic or racing machine will know the jobs are never completely done, and that seems to be the case with ACC right now.
Given it’s the eighth hotfix since the last major update for the game, the change list is a pretty small one. There’s a fix for autoclutch and the BMW M6 2021 at Spa, but the main things you might notice are tweaks when you encounter tyre pressure loss and flat spots. While pressure loss can be down to dropping temperatures, it’s possible to flat spot a tyre due to heavy braking. As tyres are designed to be round, grinding away the circumference if you lock up the brakes will change how the tyres feel and work until they’re replaced. So it’s an important element for racing sims to get right, if you want to reward people for really looking after their rubber during a race.
Assetto Corsa Competizione Hotfix 1.8.8 Release Notes:
- Fix for autoclutch behaviour
- Tweaks for tyre pressure loss and flat spotting
- Fix BMW M6 2021 BOP Spa camber limitations and tyre assignments
