Enhanced Diecast: Hot Wheels 1:64 BMW Z4 M GT3

The BMW Z4 M GT3/GTE was announced in 2010 and started racing in a wide range of categories before being replaced by the M6 GT3 in 2016.

Design: Aston Martin Cognizant F1-team ACC-Livery

No, the SA-rating isn’t broken.

Explaining an often misunderstood system. One of the most heard complaints on Assetto Corsa Competizione’s forum or subreddit is about the game’s SA, or Safety, -rating. “Is the SA-rating bugged?” or “It is currently too hard to gain SA-rating” are near weekly threads. The question, in 99% of the cases anyway, always boils down to a core misunderstanding of the...
