    Does anyone else struggle trying to find specific cars?

    example i have just downloaded the Alfa Romeo 33 tt 12 from the workshop

    in the launcher under content its listed under Alfa Romeo........, however in the game it comes under WSC 1974. Why??

    this is not a one off either there are loads of cars like that.

    It's up to the author how they categorise their car in the list.

    that is because of the modders doing something wrong. Luckily most of them do it right, and otherwise there is a search function

    A search function in Select Car when setting up a game? How will that help if your looking for an Alfa thats actually called WSC 1974:confused:

    As mentioned above that depends on the author of the mod in question, not the game, sometimes it is difficult to distinguish the cars by each brand because in general if a category has several cars these tend to disperse a lot, but I understand their point sometimes it is difficult to find the cars
