BTCC 1989

    Here’s a 1989 BTCC Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth. I’ve included the skins of the ’87 and ’88 BTCC-seasons from the original mod for more variety (double entries removed):


    ORIGINAL CREDITS:

    -Original mesh: ChongMcBong
    -Skins (GroupA, DTM, Drift), tyre and light textures: NWRAP
    -Porting, extra fixes, physics: Me [NWRAP]
    -Sounds: GTACE, Kunos
    -ECU: Alex72
    -Testing: Lunae, Marlo0081, Avoletta, Patrik Marek, Jebus, Pankykapus, and anyone I'm forgetting


    What’s new?

    -Suspension: Accurate McPherson in front, a strut mimicking semi-trailing arm at the back. Done with the help of Suspension Analyzer (Performance Trends). Do note that Content Manager doesn’t show it properly (problem with the original too), but in-game it is as it should be.

    - Fully locked differential (i.e. spool) to save the rear tires as in real life. This will induce turn-in understeer and corner exit oversteer.

    - Homologated gear ratios for 9-inch rear axle.

    - Engine, tires, aero, colliders etc. This car has 245mm wide tires with 17-inch wheels as used by works and semi-works teams. I may add 235mm wide, 16-inch wheels, as used by many privateers, later. Only one compound for now.

    - Sounds are currently “borrowed” from Fonecker’s sound mod for GrA BMW, with some added turbo noises. While not authentic, they suit the car quite well. However, I’m in the process of making new sounds and they will be used as soon I’m happy with the quality.*

    * version 0.95 has new sounds


    What’s planned?

    - a 1992 version with 6-gears and 620hp (@ the crank).

    - a rally version

    (- Lookup tables for the tyres)* done for next update

    - Oh, some talented modder should make this a right-hand drive!

    Testing exterior sounds:

    One of my favourate real life racing cars even got better, very balanced and fun. But after only half a lap @ Silverstone International the rear tyres are already overheated/red, stock setup.....
    Any possible tips? Higher psi @ rear tyres doesn't help.

    It's a really fun car to drive around different tracks. And now it works online too thanks to the fast update by the dev.

    I'm leaving this 5 star review purely to mitigate the effect of the immediately preceding 2 star review from some idiot who doesn't even understand how mods work online. The mod looks great and I'll leave a more comprehensive account later, but this just couldn't wait ;)

    It's a fun car to drive, but if I try to join my server with it, it says "No available slots".

      Again, any user or mod related problems should be handled in the support section of the mod, not by shitty reviews (especially by people who have just joined the forum, and have the same problem with other cars too...).

    Uff...! What a handful, at least with base setup, surely not for rookies, could be used as an AC grad school class : ) Fantastic job, thorough work on skins, want to drive it at strength 100 when I grow up... thank you so very much.

    Practice will not start. Get "invalid set up". Game freezes. Was really ready to give the car a try. Hope you can fix it. Thanks.

      It is not my fault, if you do not know how to change the ride height of the car. Minimum is at 78mm, and on some tracks with serious elevation changes the car may be lower by default, depending on the starting position. Please delete your review.
