Description
Stock cars, undoubtedly the most popular form of motor racing in the United States, is often seen as primitive by Europeans and much of the rest of the world. It is our hope to change this perception by giving all our customers access to what is, our neck of the woods. Stock cars are dictated by rather restrictive rules. However, the technology and development programs are as sophisticated as just about any other form of motorsport. Extensive wind tunnel testing, CFD programs, 7-post rigs are standard in developing the most competitive cars. We've been hard at work for nearly 16 months redesigning almost every aspect of these cars. The main component of this update is the tire model. A lot of development was spent making sure they reacted correctly, giving the car a much improved feel and a better sense of realism. This update consists of brand new tire compounds for every track the Gen 6 CUP cars run on that are available in rFactor 2. The update uses the 2018 rules package with reworked aerodynamics, proper center of gravity, shocks, default setups, engines from dyno data (750+ horsepower), and, most importantly, rebuilt tires (24 different compounds/sets). The decision to stay with the 2018 rules was due to horsepower. In 2018, Stock Cars had 750 horsepower. In 2020 they have 550 horsepower. We felt the higher horsepower would provide a better experience of how a real stock car drives and feels.

I can't create a single player series with these cars.

I ran these cars at Alabama and had a good race in that the A! were tough but fair. I then tried the Brickyard and Apple Valley and they seemed to be on a mission of seek and destroy. Are the AI determined by track as I did not change any settings from one to the next.

Please, add an optional 550 HP engine in setup that could be selectable indepently of track configuration.
