    As anticipated in the GP3 thread, we started working on this new project in collaboration with same GP3 teams that already provided first official info and drawings.

    This time Chris “redapg” is challenging himself, by modelling the whole car by scratch. As he told me, he has always only modeled parts of some cars yet and this is the first time he tries to model the whole car and he hopes to have enough skills to get an usable result.

    On physic side we can say the new F3 is very closed to the GP3 of the 2018 and we’ll use it as base for the development: this is a quality guaranty!

    I don’t know the time we’ll need for the whole development, because for us it his a hobby that must bring to us pleasure, but at the same time we are used to develop mods at a certain level of quality… and we are also working on another project.

    We are not used to post at such anticipated stage, but today in Abu Dhabi, 6.30pm to 7.30pm local time, the FIA presented the new FIA Formula 3 2019 car in the Yas Marina paddock and now the event has ended, we are working on the first 3d model, so can be already possible to appreciate the new roundness of shapes.

    Merci for the exciting news, Marco. You and your Slo Mo team's dedication to producing superb mods is greatly appreciated by many of us here. Looking forward to giving the '19 F3s a go - they already look fast ;-)

    One question, just curiosity: Do you already have enough data to finish the mod before the beginning of the championship (if the data is enough, not if it will be released before)...

    atm no new docs have been released, but it should happen in the next days, so we'll look at differences vs. the GP3 18 on physics side... I'm almost sure that we'll be able to have the mod working correctly on physics side much anticipated vs. 3D. And, when the mod will be ready we'll must wait for months for the liveries.
    Maybe we could release the first build with temporary neutral skins... but now it is too early for debating about it.

    BTW, let me wish Merry Xmas and Happy 2019 to all mates here in the forum!

    Happy New Year and all the best for 2019.

    Was kindly alerted to this thread because I asked for a Dallara F3 (well, F306, 309, 312 and 319) for rf2. Thanks for taking on this mod - very much looking forward to it!

    Really interesting project! I'm looking forward to it as I'm really appreciating your GP3 2018 Series. I've tried a lot of sims and mods, but your GP3 is the most realistic I've ever driven in terms of physics (and braking feeling with my G29). Keep up!

    Teams received the first car, but without engine and gearbox.

    We finished to compare data of the car with the gp3 and I can confirm that differences are into front suspension geometry that also affects the wheelbase and of course in rF2 chassis file too.

    An interesting improvement has been done in the steering wheel ratio, now variable in 3 steps.

    When teams will get the engine, I hope they will get also the power engine curve to discover if really the car has 20hp less than gp3 and with the whole car assembled engineers will know total mass and cg, now only calculated.

    I'm starting entering new data and modified data vs. Gp3 into the Borda's SS, then our engineer in the group will review them, fix my mistakes and enter all data that I'm not able to enter (I suppose a lot!).

    We still need to restart / continue modeling by scratch the car, due to some personal duties of Chris for several weeks and also because the other artist is very busy with the other project we are developing and that will be a big surprise... Thank you for attention.

    The more I use the GP3 2018 the more I love it! You have to be really focused to do long runs in order to avoid the understeer behaviour and to be precise in braking. I'm using a G29 and I'm glad to have found a mod like this that replicate the real feeling of the brake of a race car: short travel of the pedal and all the braking calibrated by the pressure on it. Every mod I tried in the past, on rF2 and other sims, was designed for a braking depending on the travel of the pedal, which I've learned it's not like IRL.
    Thank you guys :D
    I hope for a even better F3 2019 mod :p
