I'm all for ANY racing.

Are these mods/cars rips or are they legal?

Are these Supercars tubed chassis and V8 power? They look like they would compete with cars in the 2018 DTM pac from URD (HERE)

The models are conversions, but no idea from where and if permission was given. The physics are done by the modding team.

I don't think they'd be even close tbh. DTM cars have advanced aero, carbon fiber monocoque chassis and lots of other tech tidbits.

Aussie Supercars are basically their version of NASCAR: Steel tube frame, lots of power and torque, quite heavy, bad brakes and limited aero.

BTW, I'm not very convinced by the physics after trying them out. Don't think I'll be keeping them on my hard drive. Maybe I'm wrong though. Anyone think the physics is good?

I wondered if it was Automobilista. You sure they're from Real Racing?
Whats the tricount?
I'm not gonna bother downloading it myself, but chances are its the same Real Racing 3 rips that have been floating around for a long time, the models are quite good in terms of poly flow but just overall lacking the detail seen on most PC titles - interiors especially, with backwards facing parts simply omitted completely.

I think they're pretty convincing. I really get a sense of the weight of the car through my wheel.

That is, of course, the true sign of a quality mod.

Feels weighty? Check.

Guess that explains why the RV was so popular.

To each their own.

There are plenty of reviews out there from reputable sources who seem to enjoy the mod. One reviewer who runs in the official iRacing series has said he actually prefers the v8scorsa mod to the iRacing version.

In the end, drive them or don't. I'm just saying I'm having a blast with them and they've come a long way since v1.

Exactly, I had a blast yesterday racing those on the laser scanned Bathurst, the AI even make mistakes, feels like multiplayer.:D

But, for those who think it is not perfect enough and not from a pure enough lineage, then, please stay away from it, you never know what it could do to your hard drive or even worst, you might enjoy it and your zealot world would crumble.:roflmao:

I wouldn't go that far.

To me they feel believable and on replays they look believable. That's enough to convince me.

I'm not Australian so I haven't ever seen these cars in the flesh but I subscribe to superview and watch from abroad, every season. I'm not an expert but as I said, they look and feel the part . That's good enough for me.

If others don't thnkt so, God bless.

Actually prefer version 2 instead of 2.5, cars look too high in the wheel arches now...anyone know where I can find that version?
