It was announced earlier that iRacing will be updating the asphalt Super Late Model car. The announcement was made in the iRacing forum for the Super Late Model by Tyler Hudson. Here’s what Tyler had to say:
I wanted to give you super late model drivers a heads up that big changes are likely on the way in a patch next week or soon after. These changes include aero, tire, and overall physics updates.
For the Open series, these changes will likely require setup adjustments. The updates will include updated baseline setups for the tracks on the schedule this season.
This update barely missed the normal quarterly build. Although not something we typically do, we think this will provide an overall better experience and therefore decided to go ahead and release in a patch. I have driven the car myself a bit in testing and it’s a wonderful update.
There is no further information about what has been changed or when the patch update will take place.
The iRacing Super Late Model car was updated a few seasons ago and has been a good car since that update. The last update moved the car, in part, out of the realm of extreme setup dependence and made it more of a driver’s car. Most of iRacing’s asphalt cars are far too setup dependent, making them more unrealistic. I’m not sure why this update is warranted, but I’ll keep a good thought and hope that the coming changes will make the car even better.
UPDATE: September 25, 2020 – iRacing announced that this update will take place next Wednesday, September 30 at 9:00 am eastern time. I’m looking forward to the patch and trying the updated Super Late Model car.
