    @Paul Jeffrey hello,sorry if I'm in wrong section

    It is normal that in Low drag C8 R has 95 L of full tank and with standard package it has 93?

    Thanks

    Does anyone know what is peak engine HP RPM for C8.R and at what RPM torque peak at ?
    I read somewhere that C8.R produces peak torque at 7400 RPM but I'm not sure about this.

    Edit: Also need same info for gibson V8 engine in LMP2 (oreca and ligier)

    Edit 2 : i found out on iracing website that C8.R generates 500 Hp at 7400 RPM , looks like revving it is worth it.

    I really like having this content, thank you S397!

    Just a few observations though:
    • C8 Engine volume and gearbox seem very quiet (by comparison to average).
    • Both LMP cars produce very poor motion results with the D-box system, I'd go so far as to say "nonsensical" (Random jolts).

    Published IMSA 2021 LMP2 rules are still in Redline state. For example for IMSA events LMP2 gear ratios are proposed to be open.
    https://www.imsa.com/wp-content/upl...P2-Technical-Regulations-REDLINE-11202020.pdf

    Gibson GK428 will undergo a 40HP reduction for 2021 supposedly with no internal changes so its likely to be implemented through engine control firmware and given some of the longevity issues its likely to be an RPM drop.

    Not sure why, but it seems like the AI Drivers are a bit anemic for both the Ligier and Caddy. I have a hunch why, but I'll keep that "close to the chest" for now. Not a problem just push the AI to 110% and it's a decent match, and at my age lets just say I'm probably not as fast as others.

    Those of us who enjoy the superior physics of rF2 can also be prone to expecting a perfect match to the real cars and the majority of those expectations are based on perceptions. They're great cars as released IMO.

    Hi
    The rear view screen on the C8 R is pointing at the side of the road for me. I know how to adjust the mirrors but this one will not go far enougth.
    Any thoughts. This is on a ultra wide 3830 x 1200 screen.
    Thanks if you can help.
    Bob

    According to universal accepted "Flag Etiquette", flags on one side of the vehicle will be opposed to that basic rule. However, it is quite common practice (in the context of vehicle graphics) to "fly" the flag as if it is bound to the mast at the leading edge.

    Think of a flag on a mast (pole) on a windy day. The view from one side is following etiquette, the other is not. It's the same with ships, vehicles, etc. So in a purely 2D environment, we follow flag etiquette but, with moving vehicles, directional etiquette takes precedence (or at least, is certainly acceptable and common practice).

    That is one of the benefits of the flat plane crankshaft. You get a tad more hp and easily a much higher rpm limit. The 500hp seems a-bit low from other sites I've seen. I'll assume that is dyno measured at the wheels and not at the block.

    for some UNKNOWN reason, the multipage dash did not make the transition from rF1 to rF2.

    Yea , looks like motorsports prefers flat plane. Although i would probably love a high revving cross plane like in emil frey jaguar G3.
    Even at wheels that HP figure is low, it can surely go 600+ hp. 500 hp is probably BoP value.

    I've only had time for a brief go in the Ligier so far but I liked how it was driving, and agree with previous comments that these new cockpits are looking really good. Thanks for the Xmas present.

    For those who haven't tried the Caddy in Hypercar give it a spin. No doubt you will on the first lap anyway. :)
    Great package to drive, all of them.

    One thing thats a bit odd; every once in a while in DPi mode a Multimatic RT24-P shows up. It's not an RSS car which is the only other Multimatic I have. Anyone else seen that?

    Yes, that's why I posted the picture of the real life cars. :D
