Slipstream in GP2

Post by ismael » 07.08.2018, 23:17

In 1993, according to Minardi driver Christian Fittipaldi, "the speed differential was 289km/h [Martini] against 314km/h [Fittipaldi]. You can't take it all in the slipstream, because you gain no more than three or five km/h."

I usually think that the slipstream effect in GP2 is a little bit exaggerated - but useful as it is, of course.

What do you guys think? Did you ever think about reducing the slipstream in the editors?

Yes, it is exaggerated.

Belini managed to improve it for GP3 and GP32K. I tried to do the same for GP2 based on his patches but I didn't get any results. I still think it is possible, I just lacked the necessary knowledge about Assembly. It isn't just the case of changing some values, you need to change the flow of a few routines in the game.

If someone wants to give it a try, studing the Belini patches for GP3/GP32k would be a good starting point.
