    Thank you very much to all! Clarified my doubts.

    Now I'm going to enjoy the pack and stop thinking about numbers.

    Please make it possible to BOP the individual cars. At some tracks the BMW is more fast then the Porsche and Corvetta etc etc. When i try to BOP the BMW, the Porsche and Corvette also change. So it’s impossible to balance them out when driving with the ai

    Bargain for €15, some excellent cars. Can't believe we have 5 licenced endurance cars for that price!!

    You have outdone yourself S397! Some of the best cars in rF2 in terms of looks, physics, and feel. Thank you!

    Tested the Oreca and the Porsche so far. Though the sound of the Porsche is very nice I still prefer the Oreca for some reason. Also shows that those P2 cars are a handfull to drive, especialy tricky under breaking. Just a shame that we don't have the pink pig skin ... but I guess that's a headsup to the community to get crackin' :D

    Also got to say, that the performance is very good. Would be nice to get similar performance with the GT3 cars. Off for some more testing ...

    There's the plan for tomorrow then!
    Pretty excited to try the S397 Porsche as I have been a fan of the 3rd party cars since starting in RF2 it's what I always campaign in endurance racing.

    Home from work, first test runs in the 911 RSR @VIR full course.

    I’m completely baffled... I never expected the AC pendant to be far more thrilling and engaging. This rF2 version is blunt and lifeless. It’s as tame as a lap dog. I can’t believe it....
    AND seeing a steering animation bug on the first car I’ve tied is the icing on the cake. Overshooting the inputs at times with no rhyme or reason is really sad to see!
    I expected a lot more, hope the rest of the pack isn’t as bad as the RSR.
    *gosh S397, why*

    After a few rum and cokes,I went against my last post as I couldn’t resist and bought the pack.

    After a few laps in each here are my thoughts,pls take with a large pinch of salt.

    Pros
    The tyres and physics feel the best so far,especially the gte cars,the way they search for grip feels lovely and very communicative.
    They are very precise and reactive to inputs

    The sounds of the bmw and Porsche are great both in and out of car. Still think the best sounding car is the Bentley though.

    They all feel brilliant on the brakes,you really can modulate the point where it locks,where in iracing you look at the brake and it’s a full lockup

    The cons

    Seating position of the bmw,I think it was the bmw,to line the top of the incar wheel up with my t300 wheel,I can’t see over the dash,no other car is like this they line up perfectly and give good views.

    The sounds of the cr7 and lmp cars,the sound of the corvette both in and out sound poor to me,especially on the down shifts in the outside camera view,like its robotic and missing or the sound cutting out

    The gt3 corvette is in 2nd place behind the Bentley for best sounds imho,but the gte car is way off this.

    Will be driving these a lot though as they all feel sublime to drive.

    Can’t wait for a league which enforces no tc

    Over all brilliant job but some cars aren’t on par in certain aspects with others,just like some finishing touches were left unattended

    Did you have the tc off,because with it off they are quite lively when pushing the limit,of on power grip

    TC at stock 5 settings, for cold tyres are no fun.
    Same settings in AC forces you to be much more aware of what you are doing.

    With heated tyres you can always turn TC off in a Porsche if you don’t overjudge your throttle input.
    Same with AC.

    But the comparison is way off anyways. That’s what’s baffling me. I always felt the other way around when comparing cars in both sims.

    Well, maybe there will be a hot fix.

    The gte cars in iracing are tame compared to the gt3 cars in iracing,the traction control systems from what I understand are more encompassing

    Maybe ac has it wrong but who knows we need a video from a gte driver to tell us really

    Addendum: TC aid is set to off, also the ABS aid.
    Only in car TC was used.

    Watching replays gets me even more baffled....
    Did you even take a look at the reflections on metal like liveries, S397?
    All I see is a big muddy mess with no real live appearance whatsoever. All going under in a big blur....
    I bought this pack to support S397s efforts, I hope you use the money wisely.

    This is a little annoying, hoping it gets fixed at some point. Otherwise enjoying these cars a lot.

    I'm LOVING these cars!

    I'll do plenty of more testing tomorrow, but I noticed 1 (small) niggle immediately :

    The cars visually look the same regardless of aero kit upgrade. Is this a bug, or is this coming? Thanks :)
