*******************************
First build 1.0 was released on September 2014... So, after few new builds that came in a couple of months, always in the 2014, now I have updated the mod to the DX11.

In these 3 years I learned a lot of things and the remake of this very old mod, can be seen much more like a new mod: don't expect visible improvements into the 3D, because I'm able only to modeling easy parts, but I improved also few 2D for working better with DX11 and I remade the whole physics, from the internal structure to the engine, suspensions and chassis, steering wheel, tires, etc, etc... with the goal to provide to you a "modern" rF2 mod, keeping the features of the original mod in driving... I hope a better feeling for this funny car that comes in 3 different series:
- 500 Assetto Corse
- 695 Assetto Corse
- 695 Evoluzione

Ported by Thuro76 (SimRacingZone.net) to rFactor2, starting from 500_695 Abarth RFE 1.0 by Slow Motion RFE & Nicola Acciarri RFE. New physic matching rF2 criteria by Nicola Acciarri RFE & Slow Motion RFE. Liveries by LcR (RuinedRoadSimracing.com). Motec 3D by Alessio Contardi. Thanks to the rF2 community and some guys for their patience and tests!

Last point: again it depends for the classes: for the Abarth the behaviour is very closed to the real carsw, again tested by real drivers, of course with the limitations of the rF2 code for a FWD and for sure the steering wheel becomes lighter at mid of the corners due to the throttle input... for the ARES, think to the unbelievable power of the car, FWD also this one and I'm surprised how the manufacturer was able to develop that real car without flying... here data we got for the development were really few and was impossible to have the mod tested comparing it with the real car, so I can only say that the steering wheel can only become lighter and lighter.
Never heard of the steering wheel that goes inside the corner!

really no idea at all to what you refer @francesco.lopedote11
At first the mod contains several classes, so you must be more detaiules, referring to a single class or specific classes.
Then, about the audio, it was sampled long times ago, I would say more than 10 years ago on tracks and then revised in the years also with the contribute of real drivers... it was the base for all classes, so it could be not perfect to all classes, but it is at a good level and "sgrana" doesn't mind anything.

secondo me andrebbe rivisto l'audio che sgrana tantissimo, e poi non capisco il perche' quando sono in curva e accelero il volante gira verso l'interno della curva

marcobost  [author] Jun 24, 2020 @ 8:40am 
as you have seen I fixed it... PLEASE remember that the best way to inform me for any need of any of our mods is to PM me into the rFactor2 forum!
Xzanman Jun 23, 2020 @ 11:26am 
thanks,its a fun mod otherwise
marcobost  [author] Jun 23, 2020 @ 5:07am 
Let me investigate, I remember to had a similar problem long time ago with another mod... What doesn't make sense at all is the fact it happens randomly!

NotAPreppie -my brother and I are having the same problems on certain tracks, sometimes will do it every lap other times not at all, dont understand it
