    If I go to www.studio-397.com there is a video running in the background and in that video there is the Corvette C6 doing dounuts around a old plane . My query is why is this car in the promo vid yet not updated to latest tech ?
    This car along with the Honda NSX are really important to the success of rF2 !

    Edit , this is the video

    0:27 is the vette and even the NSX is at 0:48
    I realise this is before S397 but to be still using this vid on the official website and using content that isnt even updated is a bit misleading and sad for people who may purchase this wanting some road cars or even older users like myself who love driving them !

    They are 3PA content based on original rF1 mods by Siim Annuk and Niels Heusinkveld (Reiza), so I'm afraid they will likely never get updated.

    Won't they give permission to S397 to update ? If not shouldnt they take them out of the promo vid as they are not really running or looking like official content ?
    Or maybe they can open them so that someone of the awesome modders who could or may want to could update them could ?

    Another thought was " no wonder they are Soo good to drive " as that is the Niel's from AMS isn't it ?

    In an earlier thread Marcel Offermans confirmed that these models would not be updated. If I find the thread I'll put the link.

    Anyway, these cars can be used in rfactor 2 and they work well (considering they are made in DX9 and don't have the latest version of the tire model).

    They do work but are not optimised for VR , their textures are blurry and as you say their tyre model is dated which are all sad but I guess we will never get some official road cars .

    Yes, it is. Studio 397 is focusing on the world of competition, I don't think they will work in road cars, unfortunately.

    The saddest part for me is the fact i've had a taste of how good it can be and that most of the work is done and now its to be left is an unfinished state :(

    What do you call the Panoz Roadster or AC Cobra? You might call them abandoned, but they are both official road cars.

    I would like to see more road cars. We have the totally-not-Top Gear Test Track but no reasonably priced car.

    That could be a competition in itself!

    The way the new trend is with ACC coming, road cars are politically incorrect it seems but yeah, we're all not pro race car drivers and have no idea what a GT3 feels like or could care less. I got into sims so I can push the limits in cars I've drivin before and understand first hand.

    Sometimes it reads as if older content, that isn't updated to latest tech makes the game unplayable or crash. Sure it would be nice to get some updates, but it is not the end of the world and most of the older content is still perfectly usable. I still run the Group C cars at the VLM Mid Ohio, wich has a slight issue with the albedo mapping for the guard rails, but it is still very immersive and perfectly fine to race with that content.
