Ground Deformation

But you ride over the same line enough times and you still get a deep rut. It's just a different displacement than dirt. What I'm more interested in, is how the traction will be different from what we know in MXS. I never feel like my tires are really hooking up, more so that I'm just gaining inertia.

Hopefully there will be tacky feeling dirt that you actually need throttle control to keep the front end down. One thing I love to do is pick up the front wheel and wheelie over a single and let the back end force the front down as opposed to just jumping the single. It's so much easier in real life than MXS to do that lol.

If anyone watched indy sx last weekend, its what Cianciarulo was doing in order to hit the quad in that one rhythm section.

Yes i agree. I see your point with the deep sand ruts thing now. But yes thats why i was so interested with ground deformation too because i was assuming even if it was as slick as Mxs atleast you could have ruts in EVERY corner and not those crappy flat ones that you literally drift the whole thing on.

Same here. Simulating dirt has got to be hard!

But with sand most of it collapses in on itself and falls back in and fills the hole it created leaving just a small bit left behind. Im interested to see how it will work

what type of sand are we talking about though. http://www.sandatlas.org/sand-types/  :P

my hometrack is said to be sand by many people, although i would not call it sand. i would say sand has a high amount of drag and as sand falls through your fingers and my hometrack dirt would somewhat bind together rather than fall through fingers (this is my opinion). Therefore leaving us with the question what exactly defines sand?

Your track is not a sand track at all if you ask me. The place I used to ride is what i would call a mixed track but mostly sand.

I live in The Netherlands. I don't think I need to tell anyone what kind of tracks I ride.

And I know, I wouldn't call my track sand either.

If you do some reading you will find it sounds like by what people are saying is that it will only ever be a great local track in the future. But you only know what you know and therefore you don't know what will happen in the future. Would like to see it back but who knows.

And can people preview their posts before their post so we stop getting these confusing posts?

Like this type of sand, will it be able to deform like this? where one bike can make a very well deformed line, but the track around that line is nearly unaffected? I only skimmed through the reply's so i'm sorry if this was already answered.

MX181

I just hope we don't get something like reflex, that does absolutely nothing and is munted haha
