    I have done a bit of googling, but thought that those German speaking might be able to come up with some more info...

    Hope you find more info, this could be a cool mod for Evo. The Extreme-cars is a little bit like DTM cars so it would be cool to have them in the class too, just to get more cars.

    Yeah I would say the WTCC Extreme cars are very DTM like, although probably a bit faster.

    would be fun to see an Audi A4 and Merc C class with the BMW, ALFA, CHEVY and the SEAT!

    Juts remember to ask permission before you start. No point in starting when it cant be released :)

    Yeah make sure there wont be any problems regarding the legality. Will probably just be annoying if you start this and then doesn't get permision to release it:wink:

    Good luck!

    As I'm not modifying or decrypting any of the Simbin files, and creating my own physics files (.eng/.inccar/.etc) and it will only run within GTR Evo. This should not be a legal issue. Would like to get your feedback on that... This would end up being very simalar to the Seat TDI mini-mod that was released some time ago... where he wrote his own physics files that work with the already existing car and was listed as a second model to chose from... There is no platform conversions or decrypting involved.

    What do you think?

    I sent an email to Simbin about my Skinnable Vauxhall Vectra mini-mod, asking if they had issues and got no response either asking for me to remove my downloads or that it was ok with them... I also submitted my mini-mod to them with the email...

    cheers, Richard! I had those links also, and have based my engine file off the max HP/Nm from the data there... But had to guess the curves for both...

    Glad I could be of some (very minor) help. I'm looking forward to the final result.

    Please note that you will need to move the DTM_Addon when not testing as it seem to override the stock WTCC Extreme car physics ATM in Online but not offline. I just cut & Paste it to the desktop when not using it...

    P.S. Online servers running this mini-mod will now show class as "DTM"
