    OK, its now in my inventory.

    Electric drive is quite a different beast.
    Edit
    After about 50 laps @ the Spa and some dialing in its actually a fun car to drive overall, a better eDrive option than the Formula E.

    Motor seems to be modeled to PM Synchronous rather than Asynchronous as the torque values seem to follow a low RPM current limited motor driver. Similar to FE as the battery pack current output is limited. That explains the non-linear Torque Constant (kT).

    Motor Braking (electric motors are not engines, never have been, never will be) seems pretty weak. Static Motor Braking curves will be non-linear; as Voltage Constant (kV) changes with RPM at a linear rate, current also increases at close to the same rate. Its closer to a square of the RPM in its natural state.

    On a 500KW motor the difference a PM Synchronous has a slightly better power to weight ratio of about 10%. The controller can't take advantage of rotor excitation conditioning of an Asynchronous. Asynchronous allows a precision programmable braking force all the way down to 0 RPM.

    Regardless, 200MPH+ at the Spa is fun. Just drop it in 2nd gear and don't look back. Best Spa lap times were just under 2 minutes, and I think there is more to find.

    actually, it's development time and money spent on a car that nobody asked for and i bet most people will never want to drive.

    you see, things are not always about me or you.

    "why are you not doing the thing I want you to". S397 has added so many cars, and now once works together with Mike Rockenfeller to make a car for their eSports championship. Instantly people go mad about something that other people enjoy, because it's not what they want. It's pathetic

    For the first time,no thank you,im starting like others,no more paid content until some core stufs be fixed,added and renable,ex:sparks,more efects like RF1,moding suport,easy way to implement the new shaders,engine sound outdated etc.

    Can we please look into physics please ? have you guys seen how ridiculously UNREALISTIC fast laps looks ??

    Take a look ->>






    The oversteer is childs play and understeer is actually helping by scrubbing speed whilst providing smooth rotation.
    You can literally use understeer as braking and get rotation early and hammer the throttle with notoriously easy oversteer in RF2, way easy even without TC and With TC (which most of these DLC cars have ) it becomes joke how easy and unrealistically you can get peak performance.

    I have watched thousands of hours of IRL onboard and no real car is driven like that unless it rallying on a GRAVEL.
    Look into tyre physics and aero physics please.Make driving more realistic.
    You guys are quite fortunate that despite ACC you got respectable fanbase and all of them are passionate up to a point we are basically beta testing cars.
    Showing physics flaws, sound errors,graphics, bugs etc what not.
    Don't lose this opportunity RF2 is know as king of physics BUT these examples i posted above are not worthy of that word.

    people are not going mad.

    they're voicing their opinion on a discussion forum.

    chill, dude.

    No.... there is difference between "opinion" and this sense of entitlement some people seem to have. "How DARE a developer not cater for ME.... and ONLY for ME and what I WANT!" That..... is pathetic.

    Expect he is not alone, MAJORITY of people do not like fantasy electric car.

    you have to look on the positive side, for € 5 you have the sound of a electric razor:D:D:D

    Start working bad in your real life works to see if the customers like that.

    a good way to express your opinion, do it for yourself not for others.

    I am not interested in the car either, but what bothers is when they criticize with the argument of "everyone", if you disagree speak for yourself.

    the new shaders are extremely easy to use. As for the rest, you are right

    say most, not all people ... in reality electric sports cars, only four cats like ...
    It is so legal to sell it, as not to buy it, sales will be its harsh reality
