Lol if your racing a banger that is, a decent set of tyres cost more still and they have a very limited life span. At least sims are more a one off cost for decent hardware as its good for many years. I havent done a trackday in a while but looking at getting another car next year which I will likely track a bit. Not sure if I will get back into real racing probably just stick to trackdays which I havent done that many of recently. Future of AC looks quite promising with these new shader mods, content manager is great too and I seem to have fixed the issues I had with it and will look at using it full time. The shader mods and weather can be used in daytime too and I ran it last night with no issues, it would be hard to move official seasons over to the modded version unless all were fine with it and some proper testing was done in mid season fun runs. Also using content manager you can enable or disable these mods with a single click very easily, it wont mess with the game at all if you disable it.
