    Your point doesn't make much sense. The developer of "the other platform" is the one making the pack here, so it's up to them if they give it free for past customers or not.
    Lifetime sub was for online access (which never made sense since there was nothing in return for the price), not for content like Reiza Season Pass is.

    dissapointing. I thought with the reiza content having already been developed and sold for a previous game the "bundle" might be a bit bigger.

    instead it's just 4 cars and 2 tracks, so not much different to a std rf2 "pack"

    no doubt other "bundles" will only be "packs" too in an attempt to get as much money out of this reiza content as possible.

    Disagree in varying amounts...

    From the bottom, Skip Barber and FVee are not, NOT, NOT similar at all. FVee suspension is total crap because it comes straight from the VW Beetle, complete with front H-beam trailing link and rear swing axles. FVee has very skinny tires and less power compared to the Skippy, while the Skip Barber has a racing suspension which makes the Skip Barber drive like a rocket ship compared to the FVee.

    Radical SR3 and MCR Sports 2000 are more similar, but the Radical does not conform to the internationally recognized Sports 2000 class and is thus independent when it comes to classing. On the other hand, if anyone wants to add more Sports 2000 chassis from other manufacturers, then the MCR Sports 2000 will have playmates.

    Endurance pack can always use more prototypes, right?

    Not so much a point, moreso a casual observation.

    However some points that could be made:
    1. Reiza are looking after their customers, even when it makes no sense for them to do so. By giving away their pack for free to their backers cuts the income for their next title. Essentially, those that only play rF2 will be paying for the development of Reiza's new title(whether rF2 engine or not) by purchasing this pack.
    2. Of the giveaway packs, how much income comes back to S397? Will Reiza pay S397 for the packs or is this part of the "kind support".
    3. When the change in subscription model arrived for rF2, there were many discussions. Some valid, some mere complaining for the sake of it. I myself got 3 yrs out of my lifetime sub so felt I got my money's worth. Others that purchased in the months lead up would feel that they did not.
    At the time one of the best ideas given was the ability to redeem your lifetime sub for the GT3 pack(only one available at the time). With more content in the store now, it makes even better sense.

    Which in turn leads back to the message of point 1 - Sometimes it is better to look after your customers, even when it makes no sense; because when the time comes the customer will look after you.

    If it makes sense (or if Reiza is even looking after their customers... maybe they aren't but want us to believe they are.. ;) ) all depends on the deal with S397 and the license holders of their content.
    The 3rd party groups being allowed to sell content in rF2 store benefit S397 even if they dont make a single cent from it btw (keeps people playing the game, potencially bring new players). The "kind support" to make that happen for the people with AMS season pass may simply be a site for people to get keys. You are seeing way too much into it.

    Yeah, fully agree, Reiza did a great job with their loyal customers.

    im still not getting who is complaining about what and who is getting free stuff and why this could hurt anybody at any platform.
    I can only see good things coming from this partnership to both titles and, consequently, for both audience.
    (but im could loosing something due to language barrier, so, please, try to make me annoyed with simple english and objective arguments like who is loosing something and why). I'll do my best to get angry. Thanks in advance

    According to Metalmoro the AJR could compete with a LMP2. But I'm not sure if the car is racing with its full power in the Brazilian championship

    Why is it bad? There are like 8(?) cars at this moment in P2/DPi class. The more the merrier even tho the AJR is not a P2.

    it's not bad, just for hotlaping, more lmp2 is not really necessary. A F1 or diversify could be better, or a good FWD car would be awesome, cause we all know that FWD cars are really "strange" with s397.

    I'm on the beta for the dlc and everything seemed to come to a halt. Not sure if it's reiza end or s397.

    I can't help but think if reiza helped build these three cars.

    I'm happy to be told otherwise.

    I made a ham-fisted video about some of Reiza's content that will be available soon in rF2. (I think I dropped a clanger in equating the Metalmoro MR18 with the Oreca. :oops:)
