    Hello

    I’m a french web driver since 1999 (French League « FFSCA »)and I love your New « Endurance pack » but:

    -Why the Ferrari 488 GTE and FORD GT are not in the new pack?

    When this cars arrived in RF2?

    Very happy with your good job ;)

    Laurent

    Maybe they don't want their cars in rF2.
    Maybe they do want their cars in rF2 but want too much money.
    Maybe they're being produced right now.

    Take your pick. I'm sure there are other possible reasons. :cool:

    Licensing is probably the problem for this one. but who knows maybe in future it will make its way. There is a Ford GTE done by URD which is payware. Its done extremely well they just need to BOP it to match the endurance pack performance. its fantastic imo.

    I have both the Endurance pack and the Detroit EGT, however, I have not done any testing for BOP. Is there anyone who has? We are starting a new series in a month or so using the Endurance pack in multi-class racing. I would like to include the Detroit if it is balanced with the Endurance pack. The only downside is that the extra cost of the Detroit over the the cost of the endurance pack itself may keep some people from joining the series.

    Also of note is that the detroit offers open gearing, The endurance pack does not, only low drag and DF planes.

    I remember reading some things when the GT was released around Le Mans that it had ~2 laps more of fuel in the tank and some speed difference. As well as way longer pit stops and more things are unlocked in the setup screen (such as gearing).

    I did some quick laps with it on one of our test servers at Rouen (VRC Endurance Detroit Test) and found the Detroit to be a few seconds quicker out of the gate with little in the way of adjustments. I tested it against the BMW. That does not bode well for it's initial BOP.

    I watched a video of cars approaching one of the slower corners at Le Mans, The Gibson engines popped ferociously, the BMW & Corvette had the rumble. The Ford had an odd buzz sounding engine and the Ferrari 488....well...if I had been there, it would have been a huge disappointment. After the glorious howl of the 458, the turbo 488 sounded like a tired vacuum cleaner. sigh....
    Still after all that, I would like to see a nicely filled out GT field.

    All the above BOP work has to be done when-after the new tire is fitted.S397 Endurance pack cars introduced a new CPM,so we have to wait first for this new tech and not only for Detroit Gt but for GT3 Power pack cars.
    I think they are working for this full time!

    If I remember rightly, Ford ran the turbo V6 out the Mustang, Porsche ran a flat six, Aston ran a N.A V8 and Ferrari ran a turbo V8.

    I know the Ford Gt by URD but I spoke of a model officiated by RF2!;)

    For licenses for the 488 GTE and FORD GT:

    - Rf2 has successfully licensed Porsche, Bentley, Corvette ect ect

    Why not Ferrari and FORD?

    The price ?:eek:

    Ferrari don’t want ?:rolleyes:

    For the engine noise of the 488, I know it's not great, or is the engine sound of the 430/458 ??

    But hey it's off topic lol.

    If an RF2 administrator could answer us for the Ferrari 488 ???:D

    Aplushhhssss

    Laurent :D

    It's quite a lot about the exhaust, if you check the Porsche videos from 2017 it sounds nothing like today, heck does not even sound like a Porsche

    Sounds only marginally different to the 80s V6s to me.

    When? Maybe never, so don't hold your breath. If they will, they'll tell you when they're ready to.
