    Use the 2016 model, it doesn't have DRS.

    Plus poor fogotten 2016 has complete driver (suits, helmets and gloves) for a more complete experience. I find 2016 more raw to drive too.
    We are still working (albeit slowly in my case) on completing helmets etc for 2017, plus updates mentioned by others in the team

    few helmets by Chris and David... beautiful jobs!

    Tomorrow there will be a new entry for Trident, Juan Manuel Correa #23, that will participate to the next 4 events. In the incoming days we'll take care of pictures for the livery of the car and his helmet.
    We are still waiting for more info about Vaxiviere, that replaced Ferrucci at DAMS in the last event, but that DAMS didn't confirm... tomorrow we'll see if present at SPA, because the latest official statement of the GP3 Organization didn't clarify this point.

    We received few new info about the DRS, top speed in different conditions of the 2017 cars and I hope to have soon good news.
    Thank you.

    New entry Juan Manuel Correa for Jenzer #23 and latest updated liveries for Jenzer #22 and #24 by LcR

    We also tuned (again) some item due to the rF2 DX11 tone map and, on physics side, I can say we are doing last tests.
    MoTeC data analyzed by Mr.D helped us a lot, confirming that the few little changes mainly to the default setup, improved the performances, now closer to the real cars too. And the overall performances, with the DRS enabled, match the real data we have: you will feel a great benefit in race!

    Just looking at details, we can see how Jenzer painted the cover of the DRS mechanism (and of course same in the mod... LOL)

    quick update: Ticktum replaced Vaxiviere at DAMS for the rest of the season, so we'll include Ticktum instead of Vaxiviere and of course now we must wait one day for pictures of the new skin... Helmet is on the way!

    Thank you

    FIRST POST HAS BEEN UPDATED WITH:
    • link to the build 1.31 (manual downloads and Steam + templates)
    • attached MoTeC workspace set by PLAYLIFE and info
    Please, I repeat also here:
    do not post issues specifically related to the use of the MoTeC and/or the DAMSPlugin here, because you should post in the appropriate thread: https://forum.studio-397.com/index.php?threads/damplugin-for-rf2.49363/
    Feel free to post here anything related to the GP3 Series and its acquisition data and I'm sure that PLAYLIFE, depending of the few free time he has, will answer.

    Once again, I would thank all involved people in the project for the love they deserved to any detail.

    Not sure if you guys are aware of an issue a few in our league have had with exploding front ends on certain tracks when riding kerbs ( Playlife may have passed it on ) we are finding we need to raise tide height considerably in some cases and add packers to stop suspension squat . It seems to happen on sawtooth kerbs and on 3rd party rf1 converted tracks FYI..

    @Slow Motion Thank you so much for this mod, I love the visors & in VR makes such a difference. I was having a great race around Donnington (national) and within 3 laps I experienced what Bwana mentioned below. I admit, I had not adjusted the front ride hight, I only reduced the tire pressures (front & back so may have been as a result of that) but I barely touched the curb going round Craner Curves to line up for Old Hairpin when I just flipped and somersaulted into the air. I'll make sure to adjust the ride height next time but just wanted to confirm Bwana's finding.

    Thank you again, I always know when I'm driving a good mod, when mid-race something happens to result in a DNF & leaves me with such disappointment & eagerness to try again.
