There is something wrong with the car, I think.

It has 524/15 steering lock. This is a ratio of 17.5:1

Even my rusty old 99 Audi A4 has faster steering.

The brakes are also nearly nonexistent. I can stomp full 80 kg and it doesn't brake.

anyone has onboard footage to share already?
I didn't quite like how the rpms showed on the dash on the simexpo demo, it was definitely wrong.
thanks

It’s got some issues.

Sound is unbelievably bad. Probably worst cup car out there. Wheel lock isn’t represented by the dash lights and the car just doesn’t balance well on gas/brake.

Nords was great. This car is not.

I agree with you . I tried every damn thing in car setup but that braking doesn’t feel good at all for me.

Anyone knows what this exactly means?

Power is delivered to the rear axle via a race clutch and a Porsche-Motorsport-designed six-speed dog-type gearbox with a mechanical limited-slip differential. For the first time in a Porsche-made cup race car, gear shifting is performed with paddle shifters on the steering wheel.

Am I supposed to use the clutch (even if rF2 hasn’t implemented proper drivetrain simulation, just for realisms sake) while downshifting or something.

A bit more info would have been great S397.

Hi all
I have not got it yet as I am on holiday, but will be getting it as soon as I return.
However for those with the brake comments
I am a fan of the Porsche cup cars but I always note that the breaks are much weaker in Race Room experience cup car compared to the GT3 is this the same?

Best wishes
Bob

The brakes in this car aren't very good at all. I did lower the max pedal force as someone suggested, but it's still very hard to stop the car. The AI is also fast, at least for me. I tried a 14 car, 10-lap race at Sebring with the AI set at 93%, which I can usually compete with. In this case, I was getting my butt kicked. I lowered it to 90% and I still wasn't nearly as fast. Of course, that speaks to my level of incompetence.:) While we're on the subject, I get really tired of restarting the race because half the field either parks on the edge of the track or else they crash. I finally gave up after 4 restarts. I don't know if this is a Sebring only bug, but it's irritating.

GT3 Cup at Nords is a crashfest also...

I usually setup the AI to 105% and I noticed that they crashing every where because they brake to late .

Full course yellow all the time. The ai is literally to fast. They dive bomb into slow corners way to fast.

Does the ai use the same physics than the player car? I was constantly fighting on the limit and still got taken over easily.

I am on the same boat as most people here, I'm quite disappointed by the car. It feels like it has no grip anywhere, have they put road tires on this? There isn't much in the car setup you can change either.

I can drive the same car in AC, AMS and R3E at a reasonable pace and most importantly, without crashing. This is impossible for me with this rF2 rendition. For instance, at Road America my laptimes are 2:11-ish but in rF2, I can barely break into 2:16's...

The Tatuus cars are amazing (coming from someone who's usually not into open wheelers) and they are free. I can't understand why this payware is inferior in quality to those.
