    It's amazing, I've had it on PC for a while and bought it the day it came out on Vita. Seems like a perfect Switch game!

    My most recent excursion (launching a habitation module & lander to dock with a Minmus science station) checked all the boxes.

    • Probe on habitation module launched with no antennae (was docked to the lander during ascend so didn't realise until decoupling in orbit)
    • Wrong sized docking port on habitation module
    • Matching docking port on station blocked by non-retractable solar panel (fixed by having a Kerbal jetpack into it at speed)
    • Running out of fuel during de-orbit so having to get out and push

    Well, everything barring forgetting to extend the solar panels until you've already run out of battery...

    Just got back into Kerbal Space Program again. I don't think I've ever enjoyed messing up so much in a game and bodging my way back to success.

    Definitely recommend this book bundle: https://www.humblebundle.com/books/class­ic-videogames-boss-fight-books

    Got the hard copy of the Spelunky one (with the MGS one on the way) and it's a great book.

    I doubt modular DRS would have a linear result like a throttle pedal would (at least in terms of balance), opening the flap a little would essentially create another slot-gap in the rear wing. Can't imagine that would be a smooth transition!

    And there's always Formula Ford and the other smaller spec open wheel series.

    Fuel tanks + the various new parts of the power unit at a guess.

    Isn't that the same for the throttle pedal?

    No figures but I'd say it's much more drastic than the throttle. Nor are the forces involved limited by what the tyres can transfer to the ground.

    I do know that this is the reason they don't have a DRS zone at the back straight of Suzuka leading up to 130R, as the drivers would attempt to go through with the DRS open.
