NZrFL Suggestions Topic

Post by Erik » Thu May 03, 2018 10:46 am

At the conclusion of the E90 BMW Challenge Cup, Bull asked for input on what we could be racing next and suggested opening up a forum topic on this. So here we go! ;)

Car suggestions:

SimcoTCR Series:
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/ ... =556595452

I have been driving this mod offline for a while now, in particular the VW Golf, and it is a nice little mod for some close touring car racing. I have no idea how realistic or "correct" the mod is but it certainly feels a lot better than the BMW E90 mod.

Honda Civic BTCC 2013:
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/ ... =922034382

I find the Civic to be quite similar to the TCR series cars, in particular the VW Golf. Very nice handling little thing. While the TCR series would allow us to have a field of different models of cars, a single-make field of BTCC Civics could also be quite fun and make for some nice racing?


Porsche 917K:
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/ ... =782259180

The Porsche 917K is an absolute beast of a car, an absolute legend and nothing short of terrifying to drive. However I have been having a great deal of fun with the 917 at Sebring of late. Very few cars in rF2 provide such a overwhelming experience of raw power and noise - and learning to steer with by throttle certainly has been very educational.

Fiat Abarth 500:
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/ ... =521592981

A mod that I haven't driven myself yet, but seems to be getting good reviews!, is the Fiat Abarth 500 mod.
That would be a fun little car to drive and make for some close racing? I will try to give it a whirl soon.

F1 1988:
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/ ... =835266682

Ah the glory days of Formula 1! No V6-hybrids that sound like a constipated lawn mower, no gawd-awful halo devices and no artificial DRS and KERS nonsense. Good old F1 as it was in the real age of racing. Doing an F1 1988 season could be an absolute blast.

Im a big fan of the TCR series,

The 917k is really fun too, especially on power circuts (monza, watkins glen, old spa)

I'm easy with either,
If I had to choose the F1's could be fun, something a little different, or the 917

Alternatively:

There's the Lola B12/60 (FIA WEC 2013):

Or the Mak Group C mod with the 1991 Mazda 787B, Porsche 962C and Sauber C11:

Thanks Matt. Has there been a verdict yet on the DRS usage for this mod?

We won't be allowing DRS during the league.

Since the Group C Endurance Series has completed, and no immediate plans exist, I would like to offer the following suggestions:

- TCR Touring Cars (modern BTCC-like series, not to be confused with classic cars)
- BMW 320 GTO
- ASR Formula One 1991 (as it seems to have the most complete field, very well made cars too!)
- 1975 Formula One cars
- CART Factor 1998

I've been driving with some of the Premier Racing folks (USA) at their server and they are running the RSR Dallara 2017 v1.1 mod:

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/ ... 1707748143

I've been driving the Sportsland Sugo (Japan) track all evening and it's a really great track.. it flows very well.

I can certainly recommend the combination of both or either the RSR and the Sportsland track for other track/car combinations.

I've been testing a few things.

Will probably run a mini league before a main event.
