I want to thank Mexes for making this incredibly detailed car, along with several LODs and lots of details, and making it available to everybody for free!

A big thanks is also in order for Never Krash, who has given me permission to re-purpose his sounds originally made for the URD Darche LMP1. They are such nice sounds, and fit this car very well. Thanks!

The Subaru Legacy GT300 was a racing car competing in the Japanese SuperGT championship from 2009 until 2011. It is based on the 5th generation Subaru Legacy road car, but with very heavy modifications according to the JAF GT300 rulebook. First competing in 2009, the Legacy was initially developed with a rather complex 4-wheel-drive system. While the system gave great traction and a big advantage in the rain, it was deemed too heavy and inefficient, so from 2010 on, the car became rear-wheel-drive. The car is powered by a Subaru EJ20, 1994cc turbocharged flat-4 engine, developing in excess of 300hp and 400nm. The engine is based heavily on the very successful engines used in the WRC championship and shares serveral components, but has been retuned to perform better at circuit-racing.

This car is the 2011 version - the last year Subaru's R&D Sport team ran the Legacy. The car was relatively succesful, winning the 5th and 7th rounds at Suzuka and Autopolis and finishing 4th overall in the 2011 GT300-class championship. All the leassons learnt with the Legacy, R&D Sport took with them to make the improved Subaru BRZ GT300, they are currently running.

The car in the sim takes advantage of all the most recent features available in rFactor2. The physics are based on the Nissan GT500 by Studio397, but with a series of changes to suit this car. The engine has been made from scratch and features turbo simulation and 3 different fuel maps. Also the car has adjustable anti-roll-bars (The red an blue levers in the cockpit!) which can be adjusted while running. Remember to map buttons for both mixture and anti-roll-bars!

With a relatively low weight (1225kg dry) and lots of downforce, this little car goes a lot faster than you would expect it to and is a lot of fun to drive agressively! With a full fuel-load of 100 liters, this car can go just around an hour on a stint, with economic driving.

Template is part of the download! It is in your rfactor2 folder, in the templates folder.

There are now two types of rims, selected by the genstring. Style 1 = 10 Spoke enkei rims, Style 2 = 6 Spoke RAYS rims

The rims are paintable! WCEXTRA1 paints the style 1 rims, and WCEXTRA2 paints the style 2 rims.


Please do NOT upload this car anywhere else, as I wish to be able to update it in the future.

I hope you will have as much fun racing this car, as I had creating it!

Very nice mod. Can we have more skins ?

Car is very good, good handling, but the default cockpit camera is terrible, too far forward, I had to move the seat position all the way back. Is there a way I can edit the cockpit camera file so that the default cockpit camera matches the position of other cars? Having to change seat position everytime I use this car would be really annoying.
Also, is there additional skins I can download?

Very hard to see the right turn !!

GT300-s should have bit more top speed and less downforce. Remember, they were compeating against nerfed GT2 machinery. Back in 2010, the Legacy was 1,6sec slower than the Porsche 997 GT2s in Fuji Q-session.

Thx for the update Lasse. I think it would be good to adjust the engine sounds a bit. Compared to the Gt500 Nissan it is very quiet. Even for a turbo car. Specially when in cockpit view, surrounded by GT500's, you here nothing from your own car. :-P

Maybe the drag is a bit much but it drives believable otherwise. I really like it and I'm happy you released it.

I don't have strong evidence, but it seems that higher rear wing settings generate too much drag.

Is cockpit camera placement intended to be so close to the wheel? I have to move seat very far back

Thanks for the mod. Just two questions: is it meant to have diff chamber settings on the rear? Why you`re using in the tbc file not diff values for front and rear tire?
