    So now you're posting the new McLaren on Twitter and telling us "shortly."

    Why are you teasing us S397? Everyone wants to know when and how much, but you're not saying.

    Yes, I'll buy the new car no matter what is costs, but that's not the point. When you guys took over from ISI, you actually talked to us and kept us informed (ISI was terrible at that and almost made you feel bad for asking).

    I can't help feel that this whole WFG thing is a big distraction from getting rF2 to where it should be. We don't even have 5.1 sound even though it's been an option in the menu since day one. Whatever the McLaren car costs, I would have gladly paid that for the new UI instead.

    ATM i think #WFG is more important than 5.1 sound, and who knows, we might even get better sounds / options with the new ui coming very soon. Chill and enjoy everything happening to our fav sim!
    I just can`t get why people hate on the fact that McLaren are working with S397 :)
    (Steam, DX11, S397, and now McLaren is bad things to some people it seems)
    (btw price will be 4.99 eur and #WFG starting in a week)

    People making the car are not the same people making the UI.

    Ok, but it still feels like this WFG thing is a big distraction. We were getting updates to the DX11 beta about once a week, but now we haven't had an update since July 7. Maybe we're getting a nice BIG update for the WFG event, but who knows? S397 stopped telling us stuff. Even the latest roadmap was vague.

    Well, you get a new car, and as they said, the competition system is part of the new UI, and the WFG is a competition, so it all ties in together.

    I reckon they're gearing up for the McLaren & UI release at the same time, which for the former might come within the next few days as the first Round/Qualifying is next week! Either way just sit tight and grab a big slice of Patience Pie, good things come to those that wait ;)

    We have just been told there will be McLaren, GT3 car pack, laser scanned tracks, new UI, and surely some updates in the mix.
    What more do you wanna know? (not coming at you buddha, i just don`t think we are not being told anything)
    bet they are just busy working hard..

    I'm pretty sure McLaren won't take any time from the developer working on DX11. If there hasn't been an update lately it's probably because of the holiday seasons. We'd like to think these people live in a cave in front of PC delivering updates to us around the clock, but there's a life outside that as well (at least for most of us).

    The car will cost 4,99

    4,99 for a single car is way too much.
    We know there will be a pack. I already foresee 20€ price just for the GT pack.
    And if a single car is that much how much will be a single track?

    This is the beauty of the free world: you are not forced to buy anything. It's not one of those games "pay for win" , it's one of those game : I really want that car or track . there is plenty to play GRATIS for many years to come.

    No,is not to much,is very cheap,the ppl that i work in part time whanted a Audi S1 in game and i put it,the payment was a G27 new,also for a track the payment was my current PC,only the 3D model himself cost 200€,let alone physics,game implementation etc,5€ for a full working car in game is nothing IMO :)

    That was a custom car. For those people.

    We are talking about a product for everyone who owns the game.

    Custom made stuff always cost much more than production stuff.

    Or I just leave this game altogether and you can enjoy the game with all the other 10 people who still play it.

    I don't Know how much a 3d modeler get per our.....let's say....5€. The guy for the physics and maybe a guy who is skinning. That would be 15 € per hour work.....and now try to imagine how long does it take to make such a car ready to release.
    I think these 5 bucks are worse to spend to these guys ;)
