You may have missed the latest changes from Reiza Studios with Automobilista 2 update V188.8.131.52 released on New Years Eve as most of us were celebrating the end of 2021. So just in case you didn’t see the change list or download it yet, there are some important things to note.
The main thing is that the Time Trials leaderboards and setup database have been reset following the most recent and extensive changes to the game physics. So you can start posting lap times from scratch to try and show you’re the fastest with a particular car and track combination.
As for the update, it’s mainly covering bug fixes and quality of life improvements to AMS 2, but you might notice some minor adjustments to the default set-ups for a range of cars, and changes to the ideal temperature and range for all tyres, along with tread adjustments for the rubber on Group C, F-Classsic Gen 1 and 2, Street and Vintage cars.
