    7K revs! That must be the original version I gather, as the Gr C version is limited to about 6300? The original car shouldn't wind out much beyond 6000 at the most in top. 5500 is possibly slightly low, but it is still in WIP mode.

    It's very difficult to match these cars up be historically accurate as they cover production to Gr C regulations, plus there's the other issue of only 1 HQ racing in 73-74 (first with a 308 then a 350). There's other issues with how 'realistic' to make them. The cars weren't matched for lap times & things such as over revving the engine will rapidly stress the motor (eg. Brock had to keep the A9X under 6200 revs down Conrod Straight at Bathurst otherwise the motor was inclined to expire rather quickly). There have been testers who have already pointed out that the cars overheat in only a few laps, but that is how they would actually be if you did that in real life. Trying to get a balance between enjoyment & reality is the hard part.
    We're also trying to get a balance so that they retain an individual 'feel', but also can match each-other over an endurance race (the Gr C version at least).There may be a 'Muscle Car Masters' version, so a 340 V8 Charger is still a possibility! :)

    "Where on STEAM? It shouldn't be"



    Hi Nibiru, I meant Steam as a gateway to the rF2 servers. I was on the online lobby when I saw a server that was called Aussie Legends. On joining it, it downloaded the mod, vs 5.2 I think - an older version. I then went and found your actual web page and downloaded the update. I guessed it was an official server as it was really high ping for me in Europe (+ 300) and assumed it was Australia.

    Just had a look at the page. Well done but the GTHO Phase 4 specs are for the 2 barrel 351. The standard 4V had 300bhp and 380 ft-lb. The HO had about 360bhp and 400 ft-lb.

    Please say you have a Phase 3 coming :)

    Just a thought.....how hard is it to put the XA nose on the XB coupe? That would be great for Bathurst cars. There were no XA sedan ATCC cars.

    Hey Mike any chance you could redo the old Bathurst (without the chase) into RF2 DX11?
    It would great to run these cars there.

    Was having fun at the bathurst with Chrysler (not supercharged). Another mod that is fun to drive and seems to behave realistically! It's even more fun if you detach the rear anti-roll bar and have the front at it's minimum. Wish that could be done in the stock setup (but I guess that really depends on the track >_>). But didn't spend a lot of time in the car, I wasn't in the mood of fighting the car to get a decent laptime >_>
