One of our own (Tommy Christian) has been working hard on updating the physics of default rFactor cars. A few months back he re-worked the Formula IS cars to resemble an IRL type car for our Indianapolis 500 race. He has expanded his work to the remaining open wheel cars found in rFactor with great success.
This will not overwrite anything or damage your current rFactor install! Comes with new rFm called OWChallenge08. This is similar to the stock OWChallenge2006 but with improvements. All cars point to stock 3D models and sounds included in rFactor 1255. Will NOT work with rFactor Lite without the add-on pack of stock graphics & sounds.
Included in OWC2008:
Formula IS 2008 v1.1, updates to vehicle dynamics from user feedback. Extremely similar to a modern IndyCar, used for the Race2Play Indianapolis 500.
Formula IS Lights 2008 (like Indy Lights cars), same as Formula IS except earlier torque peak and 100 less hp.
rF3 2008. Generally based on personal experience in a Formula Atlantic car. These are a touch slower than the stock 06 version.
rTrainer Advanced 2008. Maybe a touch faster than the 06 version, but fun to drive and reacts truer to an open wheel trainer.
rTrainer School 2008. Same as above with 20 less hp and treaded tires. A compete riot to throw around on tight tracks. Limited setup changes, but ones that make a difference for schooling.
All suspensions actually WORK, aero calculated with lift vs. drag, and tires that feel like rubber on pavement!
(The BMW Sauber F1 car was included and lightly worked on also...)
Last week at Race2Play saw tons of professionally organized racing in tons of great race cars:
