I bought the new Merc. Oddly they wanted about £5 for it solo, but if I bought it as part of the GT4 pack (which I already had everything except a couple of BMW liveries - bought 'everything' a few months ago) it was discounted to only £1. It's a great car, lots of fun.

Can't say I'm too fussed about Assen or Nogaro. I'd really love them to add some period tracks (and more classic cars for that matter). I prefer my tracks to have lots of fast sweepers and elevation changes so period versions of Spa, Watkins Glen, Zandvoort, Osterreichring and Kayalami would be perfect.

It's a pity most sims don't offer these as it's such a unique advantage of the medium, and doesn't compromise the simulation aspect as such. Virtual racing doesn't need lots of runoff, and very few tracks became more fun through the addition of chicanes and other safety measures. Period cars usually feel a bit lost and unnatural on Tilkedromes as well.

SIM Addict
It is refreshing to see regular updates on a SIM that has been with us for so long. Their is nothing seriously wrong with R3E, but still they keep improving it, month after month.
The last FFB upgrade was a big one, not necessary, as R3E FFB was always good in my book, still they made it better yet, kudos.
I hope they will be rewarded with a growing player base as a thank you for their dedication and efforts and for making content bought years ago still relevant today.
