1987 Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500 2.7

No permission to download
Thank you, excellent mod, just one thing wrong... The shifter animation is messed up. The driver only moves his arm to the bottom of the steering wheel. Otherwise superb!
An excellent made car. A lot of fun to drive and a perfect addition to the other DTM/Group A-Touring-Cars. I only have one question: Where can I get this beautiful Texaco-Skin?

You can download the first version of the mod and find all liveries in GrA skins folder : https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/1987-ford-sierra-cosworth-rs500.4840/
Excellent car, i know my mistake i overlooked the button wich allows you to switch between the upgraded cars.
Excellent mod and excellent touring car.
Absolutely fantastic car to drive, heaps of fun to drag around the Nordschleife. Only problem is the stock road going version is too fast. Awesome work overall, though!
very nice
Nice mod. Especially in love with the stock version. ^^

Thanks ! So much love in one Ford ! :D

Great fun to drive, love it, thanks.
Great mod! Does this version stop the AI from barrel rolling off the circuit around some of the corners?

=LM=908GTS
I don't know what you are talking about with the AI ?
Awesome mod with great turbo noise. Downloaded for SRS but kept driving it for the sheer enjoyment. Any chance of a template to make our own skins?

Thanks ! You can download the template of the car in the v1 of the mod http://www.mediafire.com/download/ccua9tp8wccdxui/Sierra_GrpA_Templates.7z
Dear =LM=908GTS, thank you very much, don't worry about the double archive please, we understand the file size limits. Thank you for the hard work!
Thanks, but a bit annoying to have 7zips inside a zip. Can you next time just 7zip the folders so it doesnt have to be extracted twice?

500mb limitation on RD, I cannot do it in another way, sorry !
I never rate, cause I'm really lazy. But this time i will do an exception. This car is REALLY FUN, the sound is amazing, overall is a great car. A very very good work. Congratulations.
Excellent improvement and now the car is very much a match for the other DTM's I have (Merc 190, BMW M3, Alfa 75T). It drives wonderfully (and yet very differently from the other DTMs) and now has proper adjustable aero and ABS, and the fuel consumption is about the same as the 190E (which seems about right). Thanks for all your hard work - I can now properly simulate DTM in 1987 thanks to you!!

Happy to read this !
Ah l'epoque des autos surmotorisées :-) un gros moteur et un chassis qui essaie de suivre, super mod, merci. Les sensations de glisse, de turbi bien sont présentes.
Pas facile a piloter la bête.
Bravo et merci pour le partage.

Merci !
Great Mod all round - but almost worth it just for that classic TURBO WHISTLE alone. Here is a video if you would like to see it in action, but that Turbo Whistle does not appear when recording from Replays, like I do here. But does sound simply awesome when driving using a VR Rift headset. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZtRxjHa9cWA&t=59s

Very strange... Thanks !
very good mod, the behavior of the car is very healthy, thank you very much.

=LM=908GTS
Thanks !
peccato avere cancellato va versione precedente! do un 5 stelle, ma questo aggiornamento ha snaturato la guida della sierra, senza il controllo della trazione non si avverte la potenza disumana che scatena la vettura, si guida come se ci fosse sempre il controllo trazione. Ti prego, torna indietro!!!

In transmission, you can put the diff coast to less than 60%. Previously, it was set to 20%, then you will see the brutality of the beast coming back !
Spot on mate, thank you and help is here if you want it, just PM me

Thanks a lot Shaun !
godd mod, great job !!
Great mod!

Many thanks !
Classic Legend
This mod is soooo much fun! I really enjoy racing the Cosworth- Thanks for your awesome work!
There has been lot of talk about grip and handling here, for me it is right now pretty much spot on. This from sim racing perspective, I do not claim to have driven one of these in real life. It is overall very good mod in all aspects and I do not think there is really much to be changed, maybe some polishes if something.

Overall, again, one of those mods that make you really respect modders and it is wonderful how these are free content.

Thank you !
Super travail !

Je me régale avec ce mod.

C'est amusant parce que c'est comme dans la réalité : pour moi la M3 E30 est meilleure que la Sierra Cosworth, mais je préfère conduire cette dernière.

Le charme des autos sur-motorisées...

Merci à toi !
Slowly getting there but more work to be done.. they still seem to have too much rear weight bias. They also feel like they are a 1300kg car rather than a 1100 kg car.
L
=LM=908GTS
As I never drove a GrA, it's difficult to know how it feels in the wheel. Watching the replay, the car seems to behave like cars in the old footage. It has grip but it's not stuck on the track.
Not a bad mod but you've released four updates in the past seven days, maybe spend more time perfecting it with fewer update releases. Unless something is a critical update, you probably don't need to release a new version every time you make a few changes.
Great job! Although does this work with h-pattern? My doesn't respond when I use it
L
=LM=908GTS
I use it with my H shifter without any trouble.
nice mod, but... can you wait for upload the mod when it would be finished? and not everyday with an update? thx.
Love it. Well done.
Good mod, thanks
Overall this is a good mod package. The Sierra was always one of my favorite Group A touring cars through the late 80's to early 90's. With the off/on turbo boost these cars were notorious for, watching old footage of them flat out were much more stable and had much more grip than what this mod depicts. There definitely just isn't anywhere enough overall grip or rear end stability in this mod and you simply cannot drive them in the same mannor as they actually were in real life. If you could review this issue and make the required corrections it would make this a killer mod! Though I still give this a 5 star rating for the effort you have put in so far.
Many thanks!

Thanks for your comment. I watch many old footages of the GrA to see how it behaves... And I know it have to be improved to be closer to the real car. I'm still working on DTM/GrA versions.
Nice mod drives good , any chance of giving the dash board some textures ?
L
=LM=908GTS
We only works on the physics, not on the 3d model from the original mod. One star for a dashboard, life is so cruel.
Excellent so far. The DTM needs: Cockpit adjustable brake balance, adjustable aero, ABS brakes (the other 90's DTM's all have these features). Also, fuel consumption seems too low (it's significantly less than the NA DTM's - shouldn't this early turbo car use more fuel/lap?).
L
=LM=908GTS
Thanks ! I will add some new features and setting possibilities for DTM and GrA and a better adjustement of the fuel consumption.
Excellent Work, Thanks for improving and updating this wonderful Mod !!!!!
GREAT JOB!
NEXT A REALISTIC COCKPIT
GRAZIE
The car is fantastic !!!! thank you very much for this work! I see that in the version grA you can not adjust the turbo.
Good one!
Love it. There are times when you can picture yourself driving in an 1980's BTCC review video with this. Sounds are about right. Loved the handling with the previous releases, 2.4 however has blown me away.... Very satisfying Group A car, with lots of power and surprisingly accessible handling. Would have loved for this car to be an official release.
Great work, finally some new stuff added to the DTM series. Thanks!
Nice! Now it's not a death sentence for touching the brake pedal. Still requires a lot of attention, more like modern GT3s.

I drive it only on my mod track. I did a 3 lap race, and after lap 1 a bunch of cars (about 6-8 of 19 opponents) went to pits. Never ever happened to any car before on quick race. Strange, jump start penalty was set to "None".

Thanks, I take your suggestion and the answer was only to use the geometry from the stock model... No troubles with AI on the races I've done on Kunos tracks.
