new build is out with Z370 and GTR
Surprized that for a forum that likes SIM racing this thread hasn't been rolling?!
The Z370 is probably the car I'd vote as the most life like simulation that I've driven. Feels like LFS for the most part but when OVER the limit it's not as ridiculously forgiving, and has some snap. Yet you can still drift the shit out of it after 4 beer...
I get the feeling that the oldschool crowd here is biased because it's another iteration of RF. Don't be fooled though, anyone who loves cars and driving SHOULD give this a shot. I was tempted to post about the dynamic track a few weeks ago because it's already interesting, but I resisted because I'd said quite a lot positive about RF2 already.
But, I can still say that it's worth the dough and more. If (and that's a big IF as far as I can tell) iRacing can make a tire model as believable as RF2 has already then I'd go back, but it's just not there. Graphics? Great, PCars has jawdropping visuals - but unless the physics are at least as good as RF2 then I just don't care because I need to crack a smile when I clip the inside too hard and see it starting to rise, threatening to roll me and/or send me outside violently.
RF2 is the only sim I can safely cut the curbs and bounce away grinning, and get into the throttle early and feel the back end digging out like I'd expect. Also no slippery slides in that circumstance (like LFS) and no random spins if I didn't see-saw right (like iRacing).
Come on guys, wake up, this is good stuff.
