    News post: http://rfactor.net/web/2016/02/08/renault-megane-trophy-v1-02-now-available/

    We’re very happy to release an update for the much-loved-by-leagues Renault Megane, including updates to the 2012 Evo specification. By default, the car is loaded in the 2012 Evo specification but it’s possible, via upgrades, to use 2009 specification (the main difference is less powered, 360HP engine).

    The endurance package provides center lock wheels (for faster pitstops) and a 100L fuel tank. There are two ways of displaying units for some of setup items – the default being what is used in the documentation. If you prefer standard units, select it in the upgrades menu. We also provided a fix for some of steering wheels not being able to provide full 900 degrees of rotation this car uses.

    Download: 141 MB

    Steam users can find this car in the workshop (or download this and use the mod manager exe in the bin32 folder if you do not use the default subscriptions).

    Main changes:
    – upgraded to specification 2012 Evo (2009 spec. still available as an upgrade) along with lots of small improvements.
    – updated to ultrachassis suspension physics, which allows chassis flex. Also slightly improved suspension geometry and motion ratios.
    – uses CPM tire physics with all the latest tech, including rain tire improvements.
    – re-calculated brake system.
    – uses new 3d model, special thanks to RMT!

    > uses new 3d model

    Do the old templates still fit or do we need to download new templates & repaint?

    I've asked for it, waiting on it... RMT template might work, but I'd probably wait.

    Thanks ISI, I'm not a huge fan of the Meganes (Think I over drove them if that makes sense!?) but I'm strangely eager to try the update out regardless!

    You guys were just waiting for our community to finish the 2nd season with the old Mégane and the announcement we'd instead run a Flat6 Cup in the upcoming season to release this update, right? :D

    Any update with implemented new technologies like CPM and chassis flex are very welcomed, thank you ISI!

    And always nice to see colaborations with modding groups.

    FYI, working on getting it into the launcher, we moved the getmod server and the launcher is spitting the URL of the mod back at me. :)

    Wow, drove like 15-20 laps with it and it is totally different to the old one. :) I like it much more. Wasn't a big fan of the old one as it was a gokart with downforce for me. This one is way more organic. I love it. Punishes for bad technique. Tried to drive like a tool and it was really punishing. Then returned to normal, proper driving and it was mighty good.

    Finally! ;)

    Took it for a spin and is really a cool car to drive!
    Very nice onboard-sound! External sound - not so much :rolleyes:
    However, this time I want to say thank you for a much appreciated update!

    Seems to me every time they add the chassis flex and CPM to an older model it makes the car drive completely different.

    I am looking forward to trying out the new build with new car. But alas I must wait since the league is not moving on to the new build until our race on Sunday is over.
