Hmmm.. Did some laps.. obviously uses gmotor.

Looks nice.. Handles nice.. still leave a bit.. why bother? feeling..
Unless you really have a passion to drive BMW M3 on Nurburgring it really dont have much offer lol
There aint too much street cars in sims though, Theres no setups so it measures the driver..
Propably will play it few times and then forget about it.
That demo has online too.. didnt try it.. no reason, its a gmotor game so no surprises to be expected.

Sounds cool. If it's the Nordschleife, then that's good. Is that what you meant, Jarkko? btw, what does gmotor mean?

nah its the new Nurburgring.. gmotor is rFactor game engine, its used in GTL/GTR/GTR2/Race/Race07.. Simbin and Blimey have licenced it from ISI.

Oh, dang, oh well. I see about gmotor. I thought that those games must have had a similar game engine because the files and folders in their directories are the same. Thank you.

It's pretty fun. I like it, but it seems like it should or could have be a mod for rFactor. It looks a lot like it.

Anybody playing this much? Lots of fun sliding these cars around and the FFB (for me at least) is brilliant.

Now done a 2'11.7

Lost a fair bit in the last chicane...

I'd love to play it, but I just haven't found other people liking it very much. What time works best for you?

meh... just like GTL and GTR2, having to fiddle around with the stupid .plr and adjusting FFB pisses me off

i cannot use Dions because his ffb is way too light

i know the car has power steering in real life, but ive been behind the wheel of my friends past m3 and what im getting in the game is lame...

In fact the game is about the new M3 which is not on the roads yet...
Simracing games are still games, which are closer to the real thing than NFS or GT4, but still not just like the real thing itself of course  :)
