    Why would it have to wait that long? Surely the mods can be updated.

    Yes they can, but what's the point in doing twice as much work as you need to? Perhaps someone will release a major mod before the game is finished, but I personally would not.

    I wouldn't have thought it would be twice as much work. For example - the car is built for rF1, therefore change the plugins and update the materials, tire materials change and possibly a few more polys on the tire. That done. The REFLECT in the materials, 5 mins work tops as it only applies to a few materials - wccarbody etc. Okay rain material not finalised, that would need to be done but could be added with an update, after all it only affects one part the windows. If you think about the Formula Renaults and the Meganes and the Historics have been released. So what really is the difference they are just mods after all. Sounds are all exactly the same. Physics yes are different with the tyre changes but really, a few weeks of testing and I see no major issues there. After all we are talking conversions not reinventing the cars, the base hard work should be done. Just depends if the people want to do it I guess. Maybe not.
