    Personally I'm fed up of new pay content. It's about time they introduced normal race sim requirements. Like a proper flag system for one.

    I hear you Andy, but I doubt all efforts are focused on new cars rather than gameplay elements. I'm sure there'll be teams working on both. Let's hope the imminent patch might improve some of these eh?
    Cars look good though, there's so much great content in R3E! Wouldn't it be great if they were out before the end of the summer sale?!

  5. I'm more for tracks to be honest, they've made enough encouraging noises regarding the lack of features for me to give them a temporary pass on that. The track list though could use expanding, at the very least I'd like to know what tracks they're working on. More single make cup cars though don't exactly thrill me, even something I adore as much as the X-Bow.

    I'd prefer to see the X-Bow brought in as the beginnings of a GT(R)4 class, since the current European GT4 Series has a few cars in there that already exist as older GT3 cars in R3E already like the Mustang and Camaro. Also I just want to see Ginetta and Lotus in the game. The game's only missing one track (Pau) from that series' schedule as well.

    Choochoo...here is the content express. Can't be bothered with cars anymore. From the dozens I own I only race two or three.. Would like to see little things like: option for laps / TIRE PRESSURE (sorry) / advanced car setup / flag system. But I doubt that such depth will ever reach R3E after 6 years of development.:rolleyes:

  13. Who buys these things IRL? More power to those that "get it", but no interest for me - I can't relate.

  14. When these cars come out, like the Audi TT did, they are usually like $4 -5 for the pack. Doesn't bother me to spend that on some new content, while getting a major update every couple months or so that I'm sure it helps fund.

    These should make for some pretty fun races I bet. Looking forward to getting to drive this race version in R3E.

    Hahaha. I'm with you Andy on this. RRE needs to sort out the features of the game to make it an all rounder rather than pump out cars quicker than a Honda production line.

    Agreed. The cars are an easy money spinner for them. Their pricing is mysterious though.
    ps, I have a nice new bike for sale and anyone here can buy it for 50% off today only. ;)
