    Drove the 911 yesterday at Silverstone and loved it!

    Finally looks like you nailed the tire model, as the tires don't have the tendency to overheat on the outside anymore.

    Just a question though. Are you planning to implement the wheelspin and wheel lock lights like the real cars have?

    It would be awesome to have.

    Cheers

    The steering wheel of the BMW seems that it is very small (or very far from the driver) and is in a too low position, everything opposite to the steering wheel of the Porsche.

    I have DL this pack and have had a chance to drive the Porsche, very nice, and the Norma, also very nice. Will try out the other cars maybe tomorrow if I get the opportunity.
    Thanks S397 this content seems pretty good so far, keep up the good work.

    The default traction control level at 5 is very intrusive (it also bogs down the car from stand still). Remove it and the car will come back to life.

    The GT3 pack was disappointing for the incredibly low fame rate but this one is just amazing.

    Please include tyre slip indicators and downshift protection.
    For a top sim these are essential.

    Yes, performance is excellent with this pack. Thumbs up S397! Even at a rainy night I can maintain 60 fps. Good work!

    It's a Porsche, they're all the same

    How do they compare pace wise to the Apex GT3s, so we can add their fezzas etc to a race?

    Shouldn’t be very long until you can add the URD GTE’s

    Not that I need a DP, but while testing I could destroy the engine deliberately shifting down at will.
    A sim shouldn’t allow this.

    The Porsche nomenclature runs like this;
    911 is the overarching model like since appr 1966.
    When the model series is updated it gets a sub series, eg in 1991 it was the 911/964, in 1994 it was the 911/993, in 1998 it was the 911/996.
    There followed the 997, then 991 (not sure of in between those).
    So when you describe your Porsche 911 you say it's for example a 964 series 911.

    In other trivia the 911 was to be originally called the Model 901, but Peugeot had dibs on naming models with a zero in the middle (504 etc) so Porsche had to use 911 instead.

    It’s still the 901, just with a 911 attached.

    Well simulation is the key word. It is totally possible to blow an engine IRL with downshifts that are too rapid especially with slicks.
    So to simulate that is accuracy IMO.

    No it’s not possible in real life to destroy an GTE engine with badly timed downshifts!
    Stating otherwise is ridiculous.
