Thanks for explanation, jonsykkel. So it seems that the lower limit is actually 80.1 fps and it's just stupid to play with lower fps?

I like the constant fps idea also because it would make automatic levels possible (the bike acts same way every time when you are not pressing anything). Am i right?
