    I was physically track-side in 1987 when these cars all raced.
    The Sierra won (Steve Soper and Pierre Dieudonné) but in a local anachronism got DSQ'd for some technicality about the height of its guards (fenders). It kept its WTC points just the notion of the Bathurst win. Co-incidentally it gave the great Peter Brock (Commodore) his final win.
    It was an action packed race. There was a hail storm at the top of the mountain which caused havoc.
    It was a who's who of drivers including Denny Hulme, Roland Ratzenberger, Jonny Cecotto.

    Not ATM the cars we have are the cars we were given permission to use. The other cars we were told NOT to use. We may add to them at a later stage but don't hold me to it. :eek:

    @Nibiru Nissan Skyline GTR-S ATCC No mirrors working at all. Every mirror is just black with a weird red symbol in the middle. (VR btw). Can't leave this mod alone. Am hooked. Completely. :D

    Nib have to say you have breathed new life into this mod and combined with rf2 you may have created a monster :)

    If you're looking for which car gets through corners the fastest, that'll be the M3, but it's probably the least powerful car in the whole entire field on the flip side.

    Hi,
    First of all, great set of cars this is. Closest thing to early 90s DTM in rF2 I know of :) Combined with 1988 tracks, a blast. Thanks for including static pit crew - nice touch. I also really like how mod is structured, by year, by series, really nice.

    Is this mod DX11 compatible? In 1988 ETCC M3 (IIRC car#56), the dashboard arrows are corrupted visually.
    Also, a minor issue - side mirrors can't be adjusted so that I can see closer to car sides.

    Lastly, anyone tried this with "Self in rearview mirror":"*" ?
    Thanks a lot!

    The Sierra, Rover and Nissan are DX11 and the others are slowly being updated.
    Thanks for the error report on the M3
    The mirror issue will get looked at.
    Nothing will probably get done until the next 3 Aussie Legends cars are out.

    Two more thoughts after weekend with this mod:
    - I do not know for sure, but I doubt 1988 M3 had speed limiter, this probably needs removing/disabling.
    - M3 is RWD, but rear tires seem cold most of the time (~50C). I understand that most of the heat comes from braking/turning in, just checking if this needs another look. This also might be problem on my end, cause I race with real weather, need to check how temps look in summer weather.

    Thanks again, had a lot of fun :) I love how this mod showcases rF2 engine strength. Front tire slip on turn in, coming from calculated math and not from static FFB effect is amazing.
