If your PC can handle it, it's brilliant. The cars are much more complex, the track dynamics are much more complex, and the sound is vastly better. Like any KS product, it has its share of bugs, but the driving is good.

My PC struggles as do I but I love the dynamic track and 5 point tyre model.
I'm happy to give it a bash. 8)

I've bought all the cars from Tommy 78 which all have good models but the physics need a bit of rationalisation.

7 car set of TCR cars

and 3 cars for DTM 1991 which can be mixed with the Kunos Merc and BMW without too much trouble.

I'd suggest buying these mods,(although the physics aren't worth the price) or if you can't/won't then I have added them to my personal 'Library' which means I could lend them to anyone. (Provided they return them to the 'Library' after being used.
It's something to keep in mind. You know I'm a fan of this kind of series.

Three cars now ready for testing.
Those of a technical bent please give feedback on set up ranges, downforce levels and balance etc etc.
And how about we run this season as a mirror of the real season? that is, hold rounds on the same weekend as the real season at the same tracks(or nearest equivalent). (also use the 2018 season as the current seasons are borked because of covid)



  • Early April:         Circuit International Automobile Moulay El Hassan (Morocco)
  • Late April:          Hungaroring
  • Early May:          Nürburgring Nordschleife
  • Late May:          Circuit Zandvoort
  • Mid June:           Circuito Internacional de Vila Real (Portugal)
  • Mid July:            Automotodróm Slovakia Ring
  • Mid September: Ningbo International Circuit (China)
  • Early October:   Wuhan Street Circuit (China)
  • Late October:    Suzuka Circuit
  • Mid November:  Guia Circuit (Macau)
I gave these cars a test. They drive great. They all feel very similar, and all have exactly the same sound. It would be nice if they sounded different.

One thing I noticed is to get to optimal 29/33 PSI, I had to add 5 PSI to the rear in each car from the default setup, while fronts were OK.

I got these lap times at Nurburgring Sprint:
Audi 1:32.87
Alfa 1:32.48
Honda 1:32.37

I was getting faster in each car, so I might still have been "getting my eye in". Times are very close.

 The ATCC Toyota Corolla AE86 GrpA mod was mentioned in chat as a season candidate.


FWIW IMHO and all that diplomatic shite, Not is a million bloody years. Why?


One LOD only and more polys than recommended at that!
Suspension is FAKE, DWB rear copypasta from the BMW 325. FFS the car has a live rear axle.
Only one and a half skins.

LOL, I take it you don't like it? OK, I'll consider myself forewarned. I'll stick to Kunos cars, BMW 235i, Mazda Cup or Abarth.

There's so much more available, of better quality, than Kunos cars. In fact I don't have any Kunos cars in my install!


How about the RSS GT1 pack? I have it in my 'Library' and if you borrow it from me via a passworded server link and then 'return' it after the series, that would be perfectly 'Legal'.
That's just one example, I'm sure there are enough quality mods to drive a different car each week for the next two years!

Sure, just suggest a few quality mods for us to try.

There's the Formula/Lotus 79  (John Player Special Mk. IV) also from RSS. Doobs should be able to see the front wheels.

Nissan GT-R LM Nismo front wheel drive! from URD

Thanks Seanus. I've tried the Sera before... can't remember what I thought of it :)
