    ISI released a new bunch of screenshots for their upcoming Honda Civic. Screenshots have been made in build 342, so are a little bit older already. Due to the holidays, ISI was not able to release the new addition to the front wheel driven cars, but release should be coming soon now! What do you think of it? Looking forward to a new FWD car?

  3. Yes - it looks great, always glad to see another addition to the stable. FWD can be quite fun in rF2 and the Honda should be a nice drive. Thanks for posting the pics.

    It looks very well to me, and I think that a little more horsepower then the Clio's is good for racing fun ;). So I welcome them as well :)

    I am just afraid, online races with Civics will turn into crash derby, as it is happening with all the others small tintop cars, exept if you are lucky (skilled) enough, to be among first five or six front runners.

    ... but I still hope, I am completely wrong with my prediction.

    With a little "help" people seem to handle it better. Introducing a red zone with no overtaking for the first few corners helps a lot, as does a rolling start. But indeed. FWD is mostly difficult to get through the first lap....

    Lets hope the power in this car will make a difference for that :)

  7. Here is the Midwest USA, we drive almost daily on icy/snowy conditions this time of year so, managing FWD wheel-spin in corners is part of any decent driver's basic skill-set. I find the FWD SIM cars to be quite easy to drive provided the power to weight ratio isn't extreme. Of course, most modern cars now have Traction and Stability control so those skills may be lost to many.

    I agree that a little more power than the Clio should be great fun.

  16. Oh my, it's fun! Tried some runs with it today... Exactly the type of supertourer i've been missing, and a more natural progression path from the Clio than what the Megane is.

    It has loads of power and as in the Clio the modeling of FWD response is very accurate. I'm loving it. Now i just have to figure out how to find a good base setup for it. Still having some nasty lift off oversteer going on, i think it has a light ass :)

  17. Wow the FFB feels like it is reversed with this car. There must be something I am missing here, anyone care to share an opinion?
    Not raced rf2 for a few months so maybe there is a change in the wheel setup I need to do?
     
  18. I run fanatec gt3 with the preset in game and vehicle set on, feels really good to me. What wheel are you using?
     
  19. G25 here. It feels like there is alot of tension in the wheel then nothing and then its back. Also it feels really notchy.

    450 rotation
    FFB 107
    Spring 0
    Damp 0
    Center Spring checked but nothing
    Allow game to Adjust checked

    I just installed the Logitech drivers again to make sure. It just feels so wrong, and I have raced a real life FWD car in competition. Do hope somebody can help.
