iRacing.com – Magic Save Exploit Causes Controversy
The iRacing community has recently been rocked by some controversy caused by an exploit in the online racing simulation’s physics simulation.
Named the “2 Foot Magic Save Hax” or 2FMSH for short, the exploit allegedly allows drivers to save almost every slide by applying full force on the throttle and brake at once.
According to those who experienced it, this technique will magically save the most extreme slides regardless of steering wheel input.
While no physics simulation is perfect and bugs like these are not uncommon in racing games, its presence in iRacing is rather problematic given that the simulation is used to run league and events with rather big cash prizes or awards at stake.
The video below shows the exploit in effect, the iRacing forum discussion regarding this problem has already reached 23 pages as subscribers are debating the severity of the issue.
