There is one class that I do not care for at all.

Discussion in 'RACE 07 - Official WTCC Game' started by George Mastrokostas, Sep 13, 2008.

  1. It is the Extreme one.
    In fact I can say that I do not even respect it.
    Reason is because it is fictional.
     
  2. Each to their own, to me they're another class to be enjoyed. The fictional stuff can be just as fun, I'm sure SimBin enjoyed creating them, free will to go mad designing a 600hp Seat, BMW, Alfa & Chevy :D
     
  3. Dont get me wrong.
    The Extreme BMW is VERY fun to drive.
    It is just I do not see my self devoting much time with those cars.
    My interest peaks with real to life cars from these games.

    Exactly Ross :)
     
  7. Don't get too ahead of yourselves... Think DTM, looks XWTCC... Standardised engines, gearboxes, etc wrapped in a different manufacturers FRO (For Racing Only) bodies... DTM is very popular and now there is XWTCC in-game, and maybe soon on the track... Also, we might get an Audi XWTCC with the STCC... It hasn't been listed, but maybe... Then we just need the Merc...

    XWTCC Spec:

    Engine=4000cc 90 degree V8
    Horsepower=600hp
    Torque=850Nm
    Weight=1000

    DTM Spec:

    Engine=4000cc 90 degree V8
    Horsepower=480hp
    Torque=515Nm
    Weight=1050

    Legend! Be warned! Permission!
     
  13. The extreme's for me is my favorite at the moment. The sounds are great and the power is to be respected.
    It just seems people dont drive them as well as the normal WTCC cars.
     
  14. ... just because Simbin couldn't get the license or rights to do a DTM class doesn't mean to say we shouldn't have it :evil:
    The cars are great fun to drive ... so why not enjoy them?

    As Guenther similarly points out ... they delivered the closest thing they could to DTM without being sued, and have thus have provided a great basis for someone to quickly create a DTM mod from - so if they can't build it, they have made it as easy as possible for someone else to build ... good job simbin :clap2:
     
  15. oh then I retract my dislike for them :)
    I had no idea about all this.
    I hope we will see a DTM mod then:D
     
  16. I really like the new Extreme cars. They are probably the fastest class of cars...almost equivalent to a LeMans prototype.
     
  17. The Extreme BMW is so easy and fun to drive.
    Over steer gone crazy.
     
  18. I like the Extreme cars very much :)
    And they make a great sound.
     
  19. As the Velvet Underground once said ... "I´m beginning to see the light" :wink:
     
  20. :becky:
