to quote someone from the 397 forum:

Official version = Official Data
Free version = Modders interpretation of the Data
Is this true though?

Aren't the other GTE cars in the Endurance pack not based on real data because they couldn't get any. Is this one any different?

Yay! Of course I would read this in the morning. Now, I just have to try and concentrate on making it through the day at work. :O_o:

It looks nice, but I'm not investing any more money into rF2 until the new UI is useable.

Too many issues with the workflow and information wise at the moment, so I need to keep switching back to the old one.
Eye candy design is useless if the UX is sub par.

Despite all the money I've sunk into rF2 I'm close to a decision point to uninstall it (I finally ditched AC recently) and just go with AMS2, ACC, and DR2 for my virtual driving experience. Plus it will free up 80gb on my hard drive.

It's a pass from me for now, until I know what the announced Endurance/Le Mans Pack is. The I will re-evaluate.
It does look very good in videos I must say :inlove:

I think you want to make your point. you had already said that. or are you trolling? then you don't play it. easy.

I am happy with the Ferrari. go test it tonight. and respect that this sim is getting better when you see where they came from

A question to Ferrari enthusists, the 488 GTE was initially released in 2016. It got an Evo Kit in 2018. And then I believe there is a new Evo II kit for this year. Do we know which model this one is? I'm assuming it is the 2018 Evo.

I may have missed something but does that mean with the Detroit from URD, RF2 has a full GTE "set"

Detroit (Ford GTE)
Ferrari 488 GTE
BMW M8 GTE
Aston Martin Vantage GTE
Porsche 911 RSR
Corvette (although admittedly not the newest one)

That's pretty impressive in fairness. The new car looks awesome and nice detail. :)

The Oreca 07 is pretty good too and I race it all the time.

I'm not too bothered about the hybrid simulation but it's a shame that the whole LMP1 project by URD has now stopped (or so it seems), if I had the technical knowledge I would do it myself and update them to the latest shaders, etc. I think the tyre model is different as well now though. Not necessarily to race all the time but it's also great to have them on a grid when you are racing AI.
In essence, yes with the URD Detroit, a full set is technically there. Depending on my question about the Ferrari from above, I think all the S397 cars all competed together in 2018. The two cars missing from that year would be the non-Evo Ferrari and the previous generation Aston in GTE-AM. 2019 had the introduction of the updated Porsche (RIP rear exhaust :( ) and that previous gen Aston was still around.

I believe that URDs stance is still valid. I think they lost their physics person. When that happened, they stopped rF2 modding. There was a preview of the Mercedes GTR, but that was the last thing they posted with rF2. The last release was updated shaders on the Audi, but that never transferred over to the Porsche or Oreca. They have not done anything further with rF2. I'm pretty sure they burned that bridge with the rF2 community with the lack of info, and lack of updates.

397 should do a deal with Toyota to bring us the TS050 as it being the final LMP-H every going to be produced, as rF2's hybrid system is pretty decent
I'm 99% sure rF2 does not have a hybrid system. I'm not sure what car you are referring to that has it, but I think it is just "faked" with the physics. If they still were doing fictional cars, they could use some car as a hybrid test bed. But S397 will only do licensed cars now, so until they have a deal with a hybrid car, we probably won't see it in game. Granted S397 have a lot on their plates, but those kind of core features have been a bit lacking. A proper H-Shift system for their classic F1s would be great, and having everything open for modders to add the features to their mods

I have only driven both cars for a few laps, but RSS is slower on default setup, and easier to drive, just like other official GT3 and GTE cars. This 488 is closer to WEC Community 488 car. It goes faster, but oversteers quite a bit. Makes it more fun. Try RSS and WEC 488. S397 is between them, but closer to WEC. And better interior modeling.
Thanks! I will be trying at weekend.

It has been quite a while now since the NEW beta UI has been available to test. I am staying with the older UI till it becomes official release and have no problems with it and enjoy the game using VR.

My question to the Devs or Staff on Race Dept, when is the NEW UI going to be released? How much more testing is needed?

Make sure you're on v1118, if so try a Verify Files.
