Is there any particular reason I can only select the Corvette, Mclaren or Merc when getting to the server? I did notice rFactor 2 downloaded some updates to the GT3 cars prior.

I just joined without issue.

You do have the KSR pack from the main thread?

Yes, I raced the other 2 races in the series just fine and I was on the server yesterday practicing with Supa?

I have unsubscribed and re-subscribed to the GT3 cars. And I can run all of them offline on this very track just fine.
It's just when I connect to the server it will only let me select the McLaren, Merc or Corvette. And when I try to drive with the McLaren or so, the game crashes to desktop upon entering the server. Very strange.

As the server doesnt actually own the GT3 content I have to manually download and install each car.

They really need to allow dedicated servers to subscribe to paid content!

Server has the new cars installed, I'm not sure it'll solve the problems depending on what Bull did in the original package.

Ah right, because I did saw an update on the GT3 cars coming through. That's a bit of an oversight on Studio 397's part - it makes server maintenance a lot more work than it needs to be. I hope they include that with all the fancy UI changes they are doing as well!

Thanks Riven for the manual work that goes into updating the server and all!

I've tried again, it downloaded an rF2 update of sorts but I can still only see the Vette, McLaren and Merc when connecting to the KSR server.

That's going to be really interesting to see what the additional weight will do to the Aston!
Or the Radical for that matter, dropping 30 kgs may really help with its lack of power?

Biggest impact is probably the Bentley to be honest, weight addition and a power drop.

BMW might be a sneaky bet moving forward. I felt it was just as fast as the Aston in pre-season testing...

That was fun! The Aston was showing some odd handling characteristics compared to previous races. Though I’m unsure if that was due to the weight changes and other updates or getting hit from behind early in race 2 played a big role. But Aston felt increasingly more unsettled as the race progressed.
