    Still the same extremely small team and bottlenecks. We are very good at communicating updates and when more personal time can be devoted to packaging the update, don't worry as we will keep everyone informed!

    Take your time. The quality of the mod is worth the wait.

    Not tried them at new Spa, I have been concentrating on the historic tracks but these cars are a blast to drive.

    There is a 1966 Spa. A little early perhaps.

    In fact we have work of a lot of parts in the 917k : physics , body rendering and color wise, helmet , driver etc etc .
    In term of graphics the 917 is like that for now :

    Lovely, I cant wait, I really can't. Will make a few videos of these. Are you guys going to work on some of the other cars after this update for the 917? It would be lovely to see the Matra or the Alfa.

    Once the 917K and 512S are at a point we feel satisfied, we will rework the Matra and Alfa Romeo to bring them into the game. Ideally they (Alfa/Matra) will be released quicker as we'll be on a better overall baseline with these two cars.

    We want high camber to not only be slower but to truly impact the car's ability to run quickly instead of just capping what values you can assign. rF2 has a quirk that it likes soft suspensions but we will try to make these run properly despite being stiffer. We want cars to miss corners and lock-up if braking is done very late. We want laptimes from ourselves and the vast majority of players to be slower than real life qualifying times on the vast majority of the time if you're doing heel and toe, and for auto-clutch and semi-auto shifting to not be as overpowering. It's not to make the car overly difficult but to make it "make sense."

    917K didn't run with stiff suspension, 512S did. The latter also understeered like a truck (ask Derek Bell).

    A quick note on a graphics issue with the current version of the 917 that I am running: the steering shaft is only rendered from the outside and as it isn't capped by the steering wheel boss it is possible to see down the inside. Not a major issue, but it can lead to one of the more disconcerting aspects of VR where something is visible in one eye but not the other.

    I love the VR experience in the Ferrari. Driving a closed cockpit car without any clipping around the roof or windows is really immersive.

    Not sure if this was asked before: Is the mod going to include the 917LH and the 512 Coda Lunga?

    That was the original intent. It may take some time before those appear though.

    That's the sort of carnage I usually see at historic Spa as well. Superb fun but a genuinely frightening circuit to try to drive flat out, one small mistake and the results are that screen shot

    Oddly enough, it was the start when everything was neat and orderly. Just one guy took Malmedy a touch to the left and caught those damned hay bails.

    Are they Lola's you are racing with in that pic? I was racing with the 917 and the Ferrari with the Lola's at Longford and it was a really good match, they were slightly slower but it added some more variety. What other cars do you run with these?
