    rFactor 2 developers Image Space Incorporated have released fairly substantial updates to 2 of their official release cars bringing the Chevrolet Camaro GT3 to version 1.61 and the nimble little Renault Clio 197 racecar to 1.63 respectively.

    With both cars featuring early on in the sim's development, the latest updates bring some much needed improvements and fixes that are sure to yet further enhance the enjoyment of driving these very different vehicles out on track.


    The latest updates can be downloaded directly at ISI's official site or via the rFactor 2 game launcher.

    Detailed changelogs for both cars can be found below.

    Camaro 1.61 Changelog:
    • Fix for headlight and tail light flickering
    • Fix for skin #5
    • Rims added
    • New CPM enabled tyres
    • Added 2013 upgrade which includes 19″ rims and larger front brake discs.
    • Aero adjusted based on new data. The balance is now further rearward with slightly less total downforce. Drag has also been increased.
    • Suspension geometry revised, (less bump-steer among other little bits).
    • Springs detached from spindles. Which changes the motion ratio to something that should be more accurate (the car is now softer on default set).
    • Dampers revised.
    • Default setup revised to match other changes.
    • Brake system recalculated. Giving more even front / rear temps and more accurate brake torques and inertia’s.
    • Less understeer in AI, among other correlation improvements.
    • Softer bumpstops.
    • More restrictive wheel travel.
    • Traction control no longer incurs a weight penalty as the real car utilizes this. Also added some extra ‘slip angle’ adjustability in the tuning page.
    • Chassis flex improved, (slightly more rigid car with more accurate self damping values).
    • Reduced external transmission volume.
    Clio Cup v1.63 changelog (from v1.51):
    • CPM enabled tyres, including all latest wet weather parameters.
    • Slightly stiffened chassis.
    • Slight aero correction (forward balance, reducing H/S understeer).
    • Minor ARB tweak.
    • Minor increase in rear unsprung masses.
    • New shaders.
    • Some visual fixes.
