The work of this mod spanned over a period of more than 3 years. We developed internal standards for graphics, sounds und physics, but the previously simply "conversion" turned into a complete rebuild.

The vehicles date back to the years 1977 -1981 and could be driven in the former racing championship “Deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft”, which was regulated by Group5 rules.At that time turbocharged cars where the measure of all things. No victory was possible without turbo engines. But the immense development costed a lot and of course the performance of the cars exploded and in the early 80`s the end of that era was near.

And now we will bring back these monsters and we proudly present our interpretation of the Deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft for Assetto Corsa.
  • 17 different cars (10 car models in a total of 17 configurations)
  • nearly all cars comes up with individual physics and sounds
  • featuring fully detailed car models
  • each car has 4 LOD levels for a perfect performance at online races
  • visible damage with wobbling parts and scratches
  • kill the engine with over revs on downshift or driving too long with too much boost
  • visible transition from a clean to a dirty car
  • animated parts like shifter, exhaust, engine parts, mirror, wipers and more
  • adjustable turbo boost over all race sessions
  • implementation of cold and hot brakes and tires
  • three tire compounds for short and long distances and a rain tire for wet tracks
  • support for the shader patch dynamic light (wiper, rain tread, individual head, tail and brake lights)

Great mod
Absolute blast to drive, so much fun, the looks and just great sounds. I love the way those turbos sound and feel,u nailed it., That turbo whine , engine and gearbox sound is just sublime. Makes Project Cars 2 versions sound and feel like toys. I use FFB clip to and wheelcheck to setup my g29 and it works great on cars so far tested, great job. What cars I have tested (about 50%) fell really good, handle as I would expect.

These cars are not all meant to have same BOP, so don't expect to be racing the BMW 2002 against a Porcshe 935 k3 (without some handicap applied)
"Races were run separately as big Division 1 (for 2 to 4 liter) and small Division 2 (under 2 liter) in a sprint format."
RD race event with these cars(example)

On SRS (sim racing system) site the BMW 2002 is matched against the BMW 320i and Escort II RS which seems about right. A no brainier if you read the stats on the cars power and weigh (This info in the manual would be helpful). More testing needed, but u get some interesting racing , with some cars doing better on tighter tracks like Okayama vs say faster circuits like Mugello which suits the less agile , more powerful brutes like the Ferrari 308 GTB, as you would expect.

What I would like to have to have is some info on car match-up suggestions in the otherwise nice included Manual document.

There are also a few minor things which, I expect those in future updates (NOTE: there are updates by community on this mod on racedept, that add things like better flames effects, real names and skins, just do a search)

IMHO is very good value and fun mod of high quality, and worth a buy if you like classic cars

I't better than 4 stars but as I can't do 4.5 i'm saying 5 stars, because its so much damn fun, and AC lacks these sort of cars.
I’m taking two stars off simply because of the horrible BOP. The RMT 1001 (BMW 2002) is so far off of the pace from it’s contemporaries it’s almost laughable. I was really expecting some close racing with a grid of all the cars in the list but with their performances being so far apart from each other I’m left to just using 1 type of car for each race. I would also talk about the lack of quality in the car models and the average sounds and physics but enough people have already talked about that.
Amazing MODs!! Really well done job. Even though it is a paid MOD, I believe the price is a bargain. The quality is paramount, the graphics stunning, the sound is sooooo great, sometimes it seems you are losing pieces from the engine :-)
Hi, im enjoying the mod, im a modder myself so i appreciate the time, my most popular item being nascar legends mod for wreckfest.
I have just one issue, im trying to see if all cars are equal before i create a race, but the AI are choosing different tyres to eachother on qualification, it also seems there are 2 maybe 3 different performance classes of car, but its hard to tell from the names of the cars and with the AI tyre choices, can you help me please?.
Thanks :)
Some of my all time favorite race cars.An absolute blast to drive!
Thank you!!
If you want an engaging driving experience these cars are IT. H pattern, huge power, and communicative physics. Worth Every Penny
Simply one of the best mods for AC. For 70'-80's racing fans like me it's must have, after this mod i have barely used other cars at all.
Wow, just wow. I have missed out on this gem despite reading a lot of very good comments until now. It was a case of "no budget, no buy" ;) (quote belongs to CC)
Sounds are excellent, graphics quality is superb, FFB is alive, i am deeply immersed. More than i expected. Thank you for this mod ! 5/5 (even it was hidden behind a paywall for me)
It's good, update received :)
Just got a notification version 1.2 is ready for download.

In 1.2 is it possible to put the real skin/liveries, because of graphical changes? Cheers Robin
One off the most challenging cars to drive Thanks for this excellent car pack . I have a lot of work to do
Absolutely fantastic mod! Group 5 is the business!
In this mod many pieces fall into place perfectly. Cars are very much drivable and have a sense of a racer. So physics are believable. Then the cars are sexy. Almost most importantly the sounds have been taken care of. These beasts are alive and kicking and sounds contribute to one of the best immersion experiences I have ever had with a desktop PC. Furthermore they can be used in a wide variety of tracks. Can I send more money?
You have to improve the car sounds if you want 5 stars...
love racing these cars, cant say all are brilliant as haven't driven them all, but those I have, I really enjoy racing. What spectacular grids you can have too and the sounds are amazing.
with a rift its mind blowing if you love historic racing.
Thank you very much
Very welcomed update all around. Thx!
Nice but need some tweaks
I'm totally overwhelmed by this mod!
In terms of fun and engagement it's the state of art.
Yes, there are some inaccuracies in LOD, but the engagement overwrites everything.
This is the most fun I ever had in AC.
No doubt.
15,- € PUUUUH... ...BUT... ...WOW!!! FANTASTIC!!! THANK YOU!!! ;-/)
super mod
Thank You,
Great sounds etc.,
My only concern is regular mini-freezes which can be very disconcerting in a corner.
It doesn't happen with standard Kunos content..
C'est des superbes voitures je suis vraiment comptent de ce MOD l'équipe a fait du très bon travail bravo.
What are the 1 and 2 star poeple smoking? This is a fantastic package and with improvements over time will beso needed in the ac collection. With my motion platform, buttkickers, ris and Oculus such an immersive experience. Makes you realise how good the DRM drivers were with these monsters. I love the way you have to wait for the brakes and tyres to come in, as once they are these cars are soooo much fun. Sounds on my 5.1 system are great turned up too and the FFB with my T500rs is great too. Many thanks, well worth every penny.
