    I know the V8 Supercar came out for free or whatever a little while ago , and honestly I never got the DLC with it included because of the motor sounds. It sounds like a Honda Civic! So I come across a video of a V8 supercar in Pcars that was posted about a year ago by this guy , and it sounds great! What happened , and why did they change it to the corny V6 sounds or whatever?

    Listen to what it is like now , and then watch this video and see how they had it before. For the love of Pete!!....why would you change it to the sounds it has now? I don't get it. Am I missing something?

    Another broken promise? Deliberate overselling?

    In the video I posted above , it didn't sound all that bad , and actually thought it sounded pretty good. But now? I still don't understand why they would replace the first sound file with what they have now. It sounds nothing like a V8 supercar.

    The problem is that you are comparing apples and pear as the car in the video is not a v8 supercar, but a Mustang Boss 302R1 gt4. it uses a crossplane crank and gets that deep tone. V8 Supercars use flat plane cranks and rev higher and sound different.
    Still I agree that the sound is far from good. iRacing sounds better



    flat crank vs crossplane explained. (@1:24)
