    Suspension animations by Gary, thank you.

    Model is not finished, blame me (pls don't).

    Sound is by iRacer, addapted from his other car, quite incomplete. If you would like to make sound for this car, feel free to contact me and team up. Just in case you'll feel too tired pursuing that masterpiece with your Ableton finally.

    Excellent rival to Gary Paterson's Auto Union Type C and just as challenging to drive. There are a few minor graphical issues however; such as the top of the wheels being shaded despite there being no arches and the exhaust flames are incorrectly aligned with the rear-left suspension components instead of the exhaust.

    Very good looking mod that is very fun to race against the Auto union type c on the avaliable Pre War tracks.

    Please disregard my earlier review. I had an equipment problem. Simply put, I love this car. Once you accept that big lurid slides aren't the way to drive it, it's incredibly fun/challenging to balance throttle and steering input in a way that consistently walks the tightrope of the cars *very* limited grip. This car will teach you throttle control in a way that makes a 917/10 or Can-Am car feel like a modern GT3 by comparison. Once you master it, the car feels more consistent than the AU Type C, and that "feels" right to me. Simply Glorious.

    I really enjoyed the challenge of the 0.5 version, but this one seems to be a step backwards. The tires are now much less progressive and there's a near-instant drop-off of grip at the limit. As a result, the W125 is now *much* harder to control than the Auto Union Type C, and that simply cannot be correct. The problem is that once the tires start to slip, they do so very suddenly, making the car unenjoyable to slide around. I would recommend going back to the tires on the 0.5 version. One advantage of these old tires should be that the grip drop-off is fairly gentle (tall compliant sidewalls, narrow width tires should have relatively gentle breakaway characteristics, but with very low maximum grip). Thanks for all your hard work. Hopefully the next update takes a look at this tire issue. Meanwhile, 0.5 still makes an excellent competitor for the Type C!

      No. I disagree. That tire logic is made on purpose and thats the whole thing. While I agree that tire could possibly be too sharp by some amount, I think older tire was far off to the other side, also some other things were bad with previous tire. I know that typical AC tire logic is that tires are always very progressive, but I think it is untrue in many cases, and there is usually shorter threshold between top grip and full sliding. What is done with this recent tire, is that it is more in comfort up to higher stress, and then it falls off faster, so your observation is right. But I disagree that it is wrong as you think. I will write more in reply to your message in the forum thread.
