Trans Am TA2 2022

Storm Gang Simulation is proud to present for rFactor2: Trans Am TA2. Built from the ground up with input from Howe Racing Enterprises, Katech Engines and drivers like 2021 TA2 Rookie of the Year, Rhett Barkau, Mike Skeen, Guy Cosmo, Dylan Archer, Tyler Kicera and more. Their incredible feedback helped ensure this is the most realistic TA2 mod ever!

Featuring 3 unique bodies and liveries from the 2022 season and beyond: The Dodge Challenger, Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro. Modeled with exquisite detail by the incredibly talented, Brian von Beusekom, each car features the curves and cuts of the real body panels down to the frames and subcomponents. Each model has customizable mirrors and engine choices. While the 3 marquees can run with their own homologated engines, there's also the Choice engine developed especially for TA2 by Trans Am. The LS9-based block has proven reliable without rebuild over entire seasons, making it incredibly cost effective and highly desired.

Brake bias is the only onboard control at the driver's disposal. Other than slight differences in aero and the engine options, there's little else to separate the cream from the crop when it comes to driver performance. These are momentum racecars and must be pushed to the limit. 4 in the floor and let it rip!

Chevy Camaro:
Based on the 2022 model, this car runs with the LS3 based power plant for its default ride. An overall good engine and well handling car, this has the best of both worlds for power and control.

Ford Mustang:
Based on the 2022 production car, the Ford Rousch engine is stuck in the front giving great response and confident handling.

Dodge Challenger:
The famous Hemi from Mopar is almost a memory, grandfathered in through a minority of select engine rebuilders. The Challenger retains the most consistent looks which herald back to its 70's roots. Only minor cosmetic updates have been given to this icon. Expect fast top end speed to be the advantage when running this classic.

The Choice Engine:
Developed over a period of years since 2017 and constantly improving, the Choice is permitted in all 3 cars. Created and tested among several drivers and vendor partners, the Choice engine is a key, low-cost component to the huge success of the TA2 class, swelling grids to over 50 cars through the season.

Special thanks:

Howe Racing Enterprises
Owner, Chas Howe, was a key contributor from the beginning. They worked with us closely to ensure every exacting detail was included for maximum simulation. Howe Racing supplies car chassis, components and entire builds to teams all around the world from grass roots series to national blockbusters. Chas Howe is racing royalty, in the business since the early days of Trans Am, and it was an honor to work with him and his team on this project.

Katech Engines
Beau Bradley was the Trans Am Program Manager for Katech's engines and helped guide development on the virtual engines. Katech is one of the top power plant providers for the TA2 series and knows a thing or two about racing motors.

And the extremely generous and talented drivers:

Brian von B: Brian B or Speedy B is a modding talent like none other. A prominent member of the SGS team, we must give him special mention as he went above and beyond to bring the outstanding visual details of the cars to life.

Garry Cross and Phil Stocks of SCSR: Prominent figures in the world of stock car sim racing, SCSR helped guide some of the suspension modeling.

Release notes and features:
- 2022 liveries from the TA2 series
- Rain and slick Pirelli hybrid radial/bias ply tire options
- Brake lights but no working headlights (per regulation)
- Each car features the bespoke manufacture engine and Choice option engine
- Four ~500 HP engines with varied power curves for unique performance

Hot damn, these are fun to drive!

The brakes should be able to lock right at threshold. They should though. What is your pedal strength in rF2?
IrishGinger83 Dec 29, 2023 @ 9:08pm 
Is it realistic that the brakes cant lock up at all? i was trying out the car at new jersey Motorsports park and i had the pedal on the floor and it just didn't stop

Hi, @md71. We'd love to do some Euro stock car/oval content. However, we're deeply queued on some other projects at the moment. We'll see about adding in the not too distant future.

@快点登陆 glad you are enjoying the TA2s! We have been looking at the possibility of TAs (TA1) as we've had several drivers/teams reach out to us. Hopefully we'll have some progress by next year.

And thank you for all of you for your great comments. We hope you keep enjoying the work!
