Ok, i kwow what's the reason: if i use win7 AERO mode on desktop i see no tearing in Freerider.
But i like to use classic mode..
Why depends on it? Can u fix it? (enable in game, but restore when quit)
Glad you found a solution.
Vsync is enabled on all the higher quality settings in Freerider, so I don't know why it does not work when you are not running aero. Perhaps you could try to run the simulator in a window and see if that makes a difference.
You can run it in a window by using command line parameters on the exe file. For example:
-screen-fullscreen 0 -screen-width 1280 -screen-height 720 -popupwindow
