    Some previews of Slightly Mad Studios’ next DLC pack for the best-selling Project CARS title has surfaced as the studio has revealed some of the upcoming cars on its Instagram feed.

    Dubbed “Old vs. New”, the next content pack will introduce both classic machinery and their modern counter part, giving car enthusiasts from all generations something to enjoy.

    The previews show the iconic 1966 Ford Mustang 2+2 Fastback alongside its modern brother, the 2015 Ford Mustang GT. The previews also reveal two popular German cars, the rare 1973 BMW 2002 Turbo as well as BMW 320TC WTCC car.

    More details on the upcoming DLC pack are due to be revealed soon!

    I think one of the biggest "problems" with pCARS is the default FFB settings are pretty awful. Have a bit of a play around and you can get a very good feeling of the cars. That said, I've never found a setting that feels good with the more powerful single seaters.

    One thing to check straight away is under the calibrate FFB section and go right to the bottom. On my T500RS, the default Steering Gain setting was 2.00 which caused massive clipping meaning I had no detail once I'd turned the wheel. Set that back to 1.00 and had a massive improvement.

    In my opinion, RF2 lacks a lot of content, cars and tracks. I think PCARS also lacks cars so I'm good with them adding more content.

    Original content , yes there's not a lot On Rf2 ... But there's a lot of decent mods that compensates .

    Rf2 Ai is miles better, ffb is way ahead ...Quality over quantity any day.
    My belief is there's more than enough content in pcars to keep most happy for a while ... Iron the bugs and optimise and refine the game....too many people spending time with bugs and Wheel tweaking ...

    Have to agree with @Enagee on that one. I will enjoy that BMW Touring Car though.

    Old vs. New DLC is released for PS4. Steam release should be tomorrow (if not later today).

    I don't care for any of the mods for rF2, but opinions vary.

    I have not spent any time wheel tweaking PCARS since the first week it was released. I'm fine with the FFB since the first major patch. Its not quite as good as some other sims like Assetto Corsa but its not bad at all on my Fanatec CSW v2. As for bugs, sure there are still some, but it doesn't disrupt my experience. rF2 has its fair share of bugs too.

    Thanks for the update, I saw it on PS4 today and wondered when the PC release was coming.

    Where is the DLC for the PC? Tried to find it last night with no luck.

    Has anyone driven the bmw touring car? If so, how is it?

    Here you go: http://store.steampowered.com/app/334774

    I've only driven the 2015 Mustang and the Yellowbird so far from the back, but those are really enjoyable (along with the free car).

    Nice to hear. Thanks Kyle. I'm hoping that the BMW Touring car works well as a spec car. Let us know if you drive it.

    The 320TC drives as expected. Similar to Race07 but with pcars engine ofc. Perfect p/w ratio, a class up on clio and ginetta, easier to drive than the Group A, but very close.

    I think a club race is in order. :D

    However, i found a bug. Free practice, car sounds as it should: gear whine, turbo hiss/blowoff. On multiplayer, it sounded like a generic road car.

    I have notice that too. FFB out of the box is really good on the Yellowbird. They could rework the older cars to match this kind of FFB. Yellowbird plus Nordschleife is really a must try combination.
