    Due to car physics changes, it is advised to reset Car Setups and Steering Settings to their default values.

    Due to the downshift prevention implementation we have cleared all the leaderboards.


    • Added new content that will be released very soon.
    • Downshift prevention logic implemented. Sequential gearbox will refuse to downshift if revs are going to end up above the limiter. H-Pattern gearbox will try and engage the gear and fail until revs are lower.
    • Tyres of the DTM 2015 cars will pick up Dirt & Gravel when driving off-track, reducing grip on the affected tyres until they’re clean again. Game will play a sound effect of pebbles hitting the car body that will reduce as tyres become clean again.
    • Added new things in Shared Memory block. Check our forum for details and link to updated github rep.
    • Removed exclusivity of certain Experiences. All content is now accessible and usable in the main R3E.
    • Added a new argument “-disableReplay” that can be added in Launch options on steam to disable replay recording.
    • Fixed an issue where you start in the wrong car when number of cars is more than the visible cars set in options.
    • Fixed an issue with not being able to select each car when number of cars is more than the visible cars set in options.
    • Improved random grid position so it’s now really random.
    • Implemented a new shadow system that improves performance and visuals.
    • Fixed an issue with time left where it was returning the session duration if the session hadn’t started yet.
    • Fixed an issue with drivetrain wobbling out of control when in Novice or when TC is 100%
    • Fixed so the shifts without clutch in semiautomatic transmissions are damage free.
    • Fixed an issue in audio where the coast backfire sound wasn’t stopping in some cases.
    • Fixed an issue with cars behaving jerky in novice mode by smoothening the brake and throttle changes when brake assist is applied.
    • Fixed an issue with the TV cameras where you could see a couple of seconds of a wrong one.when switching to TV Cam.
    • Allowed use of handbrake regardless of track being hillclimb or not
    • Various HUD tweaks on areas where text would often not fit the given frame/field.
    • Optimized motion blur
    • Made changes how frequency and damping are affected by gear ratios, to increase oscillation effect in higher gears
    • Removed oscillation from differential distribution on driven wheels, to normalize torque output a bit
    • Added an option to load opponent cockpits (Video/Custom Settings)
    • Reverted a drivetrain tweak that was done to differential torque
    • Fixed an issue where the order on the left hand side of position bar was reversed.
    • Fixed an issue where the shortened names were being used despite having enough space for it in the position bar.
    • Tweaked G25 & G27 FFB values in default profiles.
    • Fixed DRS animation not working after rewinding in replays.
    • Fixed game video playback issues that were causing the experience menus to get slow and sluggish after a while.
    • Fixed an issue where the players could not resume their lap if they opened the pause menu after session timer reached 0.


    • Added full name, total time, finish status and lap information such as time, position and pit stop status to race result logs.
    • Fixed a crash that occurred to everyone in the race if one of the participants had a name longer than 32 characters which was exceeding the buffer and causing issues in replay creation.
    • Fixed an issue with players not seeing each other outside of P2P zone.
    • Fixed mp dedi front end not loading properly on Internet Explorer.

    Sounds like it might be a new game. Kinda like the new AC update. My setups sucked anyway. Pretty much default with wing change and gear change. Can't wait to get home and test it out . Thanks for the heads up ☺

    @ Simberia @Simberia

    I believe the GTR3 cars do, yes, and the M1 Procar also received the "mahoosive physics update". There is an unconfirmed report on the S3S forum that these changes have been applied to the ADAC '13/'14 cars too, but I've not seen anyone else support this claim yet. Not sure about the off-line tire pick up though, I think that's only in DTM '15 at the moment.

    It seems my wheel virus has spread to yours! :sick::redface::(:cry: Hopefully it's just an issue with your settings and nothing terminal. Oh, and that's a nice staff badge you got there. :thumbsup:

    Anyone had a chance to try the new GTR3 cars? Do they feel more planted like the reports said or do they still have a boat/hovercraft feeling to them?

    This is spectacular news!!!! Did you have the boat feeling before? Interesting that the Quattro feels better too as it was not listed as receiving the mahoosive physics update.

    This makes me even sadder that my T300 is on its way to hospital :cry: Might have to bust out the old slow, spongey Fanatec and have a go.

    Ye the cars was a bit nervous before on a straight line or every where on the track, and i tested the GTR3 and then changed to GTR2 and for me big difference, its so smoth and really enjoyable to drive now, i know what iam going to do this evening.

    Hm Audi 90 dident get the update, strange i think it felt better have never driven a race with it because i think it was to hard, but made a AI race 8min and i think it felt better or i become a pretty decent driver :rolleyes:.

    I tested the Volvo 240 turbo that i really enjoy to drive but its still the same NOT god, but i drive it eny way its a Volvo.

    Is this for GT3 cars? Because fixed ratios are part of the balance of performance for these cars.
  19. Not only, for M1 procar too. Cant change gear ratio at all.((
  20. Gonna try this out later this evening. Hopefully the DTM 1992 cars get the tyre update soon, those are still my favorites.
