Looks great, sounds good too!
Quote from R3DMAN :Looks great, sounds good too!

It does sound good but it's the audio from another car.
Quote from Mustangman759 :you get a .5 bump at 2.0 sr and maybe 3.0 sr iirc.

You get given 0.5 SR everytime you go through a licence boundary including going up to 4.0.
Upcoming releases:
RUF Porsche (4 versions)
California Speedway (last NASCAR oval)
Holden V8 Supercar announced
1 new track which I cannot name. Lets see if any of you can figure it out.
Quote from vipex123 :You get given 0.5 SR everytime you go through a licence boundary including going up to 4.0.

yea, you can also lose that bump to. like I just did, not my fault someone is 2 seconds off pace on a half mile track though and can't hold a line while being lapped.
Ruf seems to be getting released within the hour. SMyers on Twitter posted "If I had a dog it would be saying "RUF, RUF" today...." and the membersite has a message saying: "** Downtime for 2 hours at 1:00pm EST / 18:00 UTC for new content and updates **
".

I'm holding out some hope for the RUF, if it drives like a dog (haha) then it's goodbye for me, I've got 3 days left on my sub.
you can guarantee that if it handles like a 911 there will be loads of people complaining that it's not right
Maintenance in progress. Back up before 20 UTC.
When we're back, things will be Ruf in California.
The RUF package is balls.

C-Spec version is really solid to drive, abit understeery in some corners and quite hard suspension making the car bouncing off curbs.
I just rolled in T1 of Spa.

The Track one is my favourite.
Just had some laps on Montreal, really love the feeling for the car and the power of it, also. Great downforce making it really nice flying around the corners, here. Can't wait to get on track again with this beast.

I can't say anything constructive for the 730bhp RWD version to be honest, just tried it on Daytona and holy crap. This is abit too much for me, this thing is getting 320km/h on straight here and isn't even controlable seriously.

So is this supposed to have a more uptodate version of NTM5 (saying this has like v5.2, while MX and solstice have 5.1)? Noticed any differences?

Apparently it has the same tyre model as the rest of the NTM5 cars, as rolling in the updates to the tyre for just the RUF would **** up the rest of the NTM5 cars.

Ok, just saw this too:
Quote from Steve Myers :This is a preview because they will get even better in the January build when all of the tire updates are applied to it. We could not roll out the full tire update because it would impact all of the current V5 tire cars which we did not have time to tune. Just to be clear the RUF is on the ntmV5, but there will be a further update to this model for all cars running it in the next build. AWD version will also be in the January build.

Speculations: the wording might suggest that there were in fact some tire updates that were applied, just not all of them. It doesn't say if the next NTM iteration coming in January will be applied to any other non v5 car. Given that they have it figured out for the Ruf, I would make sense to at least put it on the McLaen and comparable cars. In the comments on the handing of the Ruf, I'm reading of "fundamental grip issues" and "rear lateral grip" issues on NTM5. What are these? Is it something that emerged just now, after 1.5 months of figuring out all the limits and glitches of the october build?

Because iRacing can't create a proper universal tyre model? It's silly. Anyone actually still paying for that crap needs better service than that. I mean they said something in response to how easy the Ruf is rolling over that it's a "preview release" or some shit.
AWD RUF?!

Quote from Töki (HUN) :AWD RUF?!


Yea, it's that option that nobody chooses over RWD. So it's iRacings way of making their playerbase believe they got three cars for the price of one, when in reality they got 1 car for the price of a complete game.
Reminds me of driving the street stock on Charlotte infield road at night.

Remember guys. Cars can barrel roll at low speed!
I like to eat dookie.
Will they be doing a RUF special offer for Christmas?
