    The tracks were built using very accurate topographical LiDAR data.

    Could the developer have a look at the exchange rates on Steam?

    RF2 is using a 1.94 multiplier for Brazil while Kartsim is using 3.34 multiplier.

    EDIT:
    Also, is Michael Borda the author of these karts' physics too?

    KartSim OPEN Server 2 (Rental Karts)
    Each Server runs a rotation of all tracks

    Is there any particular reason for the setups being fixed? At least it says they are in the item description on the steam store. I mean I don't even mind that much, at least the racing will be closer, but it kind of bothers me a little in case I don't like the default setup

    Thanks S397 and the KartSim guy (apologies forgot his name) for bringing this to RF2, whilst Karts are not my cuppa tea I'm sure there are many happy Karters out there with this release.

    Karting has no effect on my racing experience but it is great to see new content coming to rF2. I hope you guys make a tidy profit on it so you can fund more great content in the future. Good looking and congratulations.

    Ok, after always saying that I would buy the DLC to encourage S397 and help development, I think I will give this one a miss for the price point and my 0-interest in karts...hopefully the kart-niche will still be a good cash injection for the developers none-the-less.

    Excellent news,since I’ve just started going karting regularly at my local track,this will be of interest to me.
    Seeing as it is a pack and can’t buy the individual pieces,I may wait until some give their opinions on these new ones vs isi ones.

    A small question by my side:
    will ever be available for purchase only the two karts, without the tracks?

    Does it have Lock to Horizon, or something to simulate this?
    I love karts, but the S397 ones are impossible, for me, using VR.

    This is a pack for rF2. It's not going to have something new like that by itself.

    @Will Mazeo Locking the view to the car is different to 'locking' it to the horizon. In some ways having your view bolted to the car is worse than the default head physics. There are threads discussing this.

    Yes, but if they have taken it in account, reducing the vibrations... :rolleyes:

    I think the existing headphysics stuff can't do what VR users want. Lock to horizon is the best option, which will hopefully be implemented soon (for everyone).

    *And sorry for off-topic
