Team Vintage has released their 1937 Grand Prix mod for rFactor.
The mod adds a very different type of racing to ISI’s trusted simulation, allowing players to experience the pre-war era of powerful but heavy cars racing on narrow tires and no safety devices whatsoever.
The mod includes five different car models:
Auto union type C
Alfa Romeo 12C 36
E.R.A type B

First off, they don't support DX7. So it's probably not for me.
Looks *really* impress. So does the UI, with music from the era (I always loved Django) and the videos of the accidents etc.
Handling is a hand and feet full! They do feel awkward, a bit in the way I thought they should. BUT braking is *much* more difficult than I had anticipated. They have almost no grip and you can't feel "the limit". Once you start to think you're getting there it breaks off and then it's hard to get the car back. Indeed, the way to go "fast" seems to be just to drift it a bit, which requires an ability I certainly don't have.
I only tried the Benz, maybe I should have started from the venturettes. However, considering the DX7 problem I might not even run them that much anyway.
I wonder how many DNFs we would have running a series with those haha

Just tried it at Le Mans 77! The cars look and sound amazing. Very detailed. They do feel awkward. The user manual is a must read!

Great! Thanks for posting!
The vid is (I think) actually from the WIP, I had taken more than one look at it.
I'm downloading it right now, can't wait to try it.
Hopefully more historic tracks from the same era will come.

Sweet! Can't wait to try this- rFactor's remote tire feel actually makes sense in cars like this.
