    I was just going to revisit this thread to see if the M2 finally got its gremlins looked after. Still not the case I see...
    It's basically one of the best official cup cars in the game, why didn't it get revised yet since it was launched in December 2019 to sort out the FFB rattling and some other issues mentioned in here?

    Is this car optimized for rainy races? AI doesn't get wet tires...

    Is there a skin pack for this car? I'm racing it a lot lately to improve my driving, and I would love to have a colourful grid .

    It's a trap! :D That's the reason it's hard to recommend rF2 to anybody. Half of the most expensive content on the market has some issues and the game is not the game at all, it's rather build your own game if you want. I like it, but...

    I was very happy with M2. I just checked few threads about released content and now understand not completed cars are rather standard. Hard to recommend to anybody. It's a lottery, maybe the car is complete, maybe it's not. It looks like broken QA to me because most problems are very visible. For instance, last Astra, should the LEDs work? I don't know but after everything I have some doubts.

    Maybe it's language barrier, but this is how I understand you:
    At start I thought the car was great, then I've read people complain for the lack of features in other cars, so I decided that RF2 is a cheap shot.

    My suggestion is to not care what other people say, the car turn left and right, has pedals and gears, there is all I need to drive! The car is fun to drive and sensitive to setup changes, is rewarding to race against the clock and against che AI, has a complex behaviour at grip limit with suspension pumping , tankslapping and all the funny things that try to kill you. How can someone not love this car?

    I've have had beers that costed more and I liked far less than this car.

    Yes, maybe. The problem is I have all rF2 content and it was rather expensive. No problem to me if the content is at least complete. And it's not. So my recommendation to my friends is to be very careful because the game is very weird and you won't get much for the money. The conclusion from me is I am partly OK with it but it's hidden from new customers. The threads showed me bugs could be in most expensive cars on the market for years. Years! It's not normal.

    What exactly are you missing in this vehicle?
    Ok, new Shaders would be fine.
    Otherwise, this car is awesome for me.
    I love it for his behaviour and physics.
    It's a real challenge to master this car.
    The perfect school car.

    This car is fine for me. I have problem with other cars and maybe some people found something broken with this one? It's like I don't use all combinations.

    I haven't tested much content but what I saw immediately. RCCO can't use AI. C8 has broken dash. Radical has broken dash. I probably didn't use more than half of the content. What else is broken then? :D New Astra has LEDs without any usage...

    Some of the S397 rF2 content could do with some updates but, most of those seem to be relatively minor issues, imo.
    For those that appreciate rF2 physics, ffb, new audio, etc., accepting some issues may not pose a major obstacle but, it's like that for every single sim if you think about it.

    Comparing rF2 content prices to iRacing, it seems like a very fair deal, especially considering how the market plays into the overall picture. On the other hand, comparison to AC is quite a different story but, one with its own compromises, none the less.

    ABS causes major FFB rattling in your steering wheel, tyre screech sound bug in replays and the dashboard leds are over exposed at night.

    Oh yeah, the ABS vibes are crazy with this car. I did notice that long ago but, thought it must have been fixed by now. :confused::D

    You have to mess with the brakes very much to achieve that rattling, and I don't think it's the ABS but the front suspension bouncing the tires on and off the ground.
