991 is feeling and handling great. Nice to be able to battle with the Ferrari. They still get me with their straight line speed, but I can battle back in the corners.

How about track map, in this century?!?
SimHub. Also car radar, FFB meter and plenty of other stuff.

I think it's a safe bet nothing like that comes in the game itself any time soon.

Studio 397 have released a new Balance of Performance (BOP) update to the GTE specification cars within the simulation.


The new update was released to Steam earlier this evening, adding various performance levelling updates to a number of cars within the simulation - from changes to weight penalties to various new default setups for a number of the vehicles.

As GTE content for rFactor 2 is held within the Steam platform, the new update should automatically download for players who already own the content the next time they restart their Steam client.

Update Notes:

Chevrolet Corvette C7.R GTE v2.47

  • Fix for wrong default differential preload
  • New default setup
  • Qualification fuel map as new default.
Aston Martin Vantage GTE v1.57
  • Added +5kg weight penalty
  • New default setup
  • Small adjustment to fuel consumption
  • Qualification fuel map as new default
  • Small adjustment to engine torque/power output
  • Downforce and drag
  • Corrections to damper travel in both directions (mainly on rebound, but also very minor to bump stops).
  • Fix for camber adjustment step (now it’s 0.1 deg) Note: this change will require corrections for camber angles in existing setups.
BMW M8 GTE v2.07
  • New default setup
  • Qualification fuel map as new default
  • Small adjustment to downforce.
Porsche 991 RSR GTE 2.47
  • New default setup
  • Small adjustment to fuel consumption
  • Qualification fuel map as new default
  • Small adjustment to engine torque/power output and downforce.
Ferrari 488 GTE v1.67
  • New default setup
  • Fixed fuel tank (was 93L, should be 90L)
  • Small adjustment to fuel consumption
  • Qualification fuel map as new default
  • Small adjustment to engine torque/power output.


rFactor 2 is available now exclusively to PC.

I like they keep updating/fixing some old content instead of just releasing new cars.
Only tried Porsche and then Aston with default setups so far.
I'm surprised how much more grip Aston has - to the point I was easily 5 seconds quicker on Nurburgring (Combined with Nords layout). I wonder why such difference.
I don't think it only comes down to driving style, but with Porsche, tires definitely tend to overheat more.

Did they not just release a very good version of Tochigi?
Yes it's pretty good fun. Nice mix of detail without it being too tough on the PC hardware.

I may have lost track of time, but I think the last generation of DTM was about a year ago so they still make content but agreed I would have liked them to have updated the LMP1 cars as I liked racing in them.

Having purchased both versions i am hoping they update the Rfactor 2 version to mirror the AC version. Fingers crossed.
