    Hey guys, I really wanna get my head stuck into some driving with my new vr and I wanted to buy a 2017 spec car mod.
    I can't choose between the one made by race sim studios and the ACFL 2017 cars.
    Which one is better to drive? Which one gives the best driving experience? And most of all, which car is the most realistic to the real cars performance wise?

    Please don't give answers if you HAVEN'T driven the cars.

    Cheers!

    I haven't driven either but I can tell you that the Race Sim Studios mod is certainly more popular, at least amongst the english-speaking AC community, going by the number of discussions, videos and skin downloads I've seen about both cars. So that will probably influence your poll.

    Given that the real F1 season has only just begun I expect that the performance of both mods will be made more realistic over time as well.

    ACFL has history of stealing other creators content (SFX in this case) so if it were me I'd not be supporting that sort of practice (even if this particular mod was not 'guilty', its just by principle).

    The RaceSim one isn't particularly realistic, just watch the China Qualifying, there's a sweeping high speed left where Hamilton has to half throttle/coast but in the 2017 Hybrid mod you can just full throttle through it on the same compound Hamilton was using no problems at all.

    It seems to actually have either too much downforce or too much grip. You can get very similar lap times but the actual way it gets them is false.

    The race SIM studio drives very well, is easy to install and the cockpit in VR is superb.

    And I'm sure you are driving in the super accurate version of Codemasters' China port.

    Wut ?

    First, there isn't an official China track to make a proper test.
    Second, even a Sauber could take that turn 7 flat out easily during quali, and drivers were making short lifts during the race while following other cars.

    Please, verify your informations before posting.

    The RSS Hyrbid 2017 is by far the best 2017 car we have ! no comparison is possible in my case.

    Yeah I noticed also it was easy flat for every car in quali, but in the race (heavy, used tyres, poor damp conditions and typically following in the wake of another car) they had to lift.

    Seems about right to me,

    Their tyres look to me like SF15 ones but re-sized.

    Unsurprising. I haven't bothered checking it myself, not particularly interested in their content since hearing of their stealing habits.

    I don't have their mod but from videos the textures are suspiciosly similar.


    I'm flat were they are flat in China, pretty on point IMO.

    OT: @David Dominguez if i'm not mistaken you were involved in a bunch of F1 track mods in RF2, could you help us here? ;)

    I simply ported and tweaked some tracks around 2014, I can't really help you much. If I am very honest I almost forgot everything.

    How so? I'm asking for consumer advice as I have not driven any of the cars.
    I'd appreciate it if you could stop acting like you do, if you have nothing to contributes to this forum please don't say it.
    And I'm also assuming you're being sarcastic and you're saying it's blatant the formula hybrid is better.

    Hello, In my humble opinion you will not have here an objective opinion on the mod ACFL2017. Take both if cost is not a problem and make your own opinion!

    Leaving the moral debate aside, ACFL were half assed back when it was a free mod, both model and physics wise, i haven't played the 2017 version but i can't imagine that they became much better.

    Their only advantage is that they have individual car shapes opposed to 2 generic ones.
