    Would it ever be possible for you guys to do a livery pack for TCR cars that don't compete in the WTCR, but instead in the various regions around the world? I would pay good money, and would pre-buy for sure (as I'm sure other dedicated TCR fans would as well) if you guys were considering it and wanted to gauge interest.

    As an example-
    TCR Europe - Files, Briche, Magnus, Comte, Homola, Urrutia, etc
    ADAC TCR Germany - Buri, Proczyk, Halder, Hesse, Coicaud, etc
    TCR Asia - Engstler, Lloyd, Oriola, Moran, Miranda
    TCR Australia - Brown, O'Keefe, D'Alberto, Cameron, Moffat, Tander, Pither, Bright, etc
    In addition there are other championships (Italy, Russia, Iberia, America, Canada, along with IMSA) where there are more potential cars that could be included. To me, if the cars are already built this would be a fairly easy money making endeavor.

    There are also other homologated TCR cars racing in these series such as:
    Hyundai Veloster
    Opel/Vauxhall/Holden Astra
    Lada Vesta
    Renault Megane
    Subaru WRX
    as well as the Peugeot 308 which was not included in the 2019 release.

    From a business standpoint WTCR and TCR in general is one of the things that Raceroom has on other sims. You should exploit this. If you had WTCR every summer, and a release of the International TCR series' every winter you could get money from the same people twice a year and you would be the only sim with a complete library of TCR cars. Just a thought, of course I would be more than happy with just the skins for the existing cars and as I said more than willing to pay and I'm sure there are many others as well.

    Thank you for everything you do! This is a great sim.
    Jeff.

    Porsche 911 GT3 R:
    The new sound is great.

    Porsche 991.2 GT3 CUP:
    Only one word
    BoooOOOOOAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!

    This car is amazing.
    Until today the cup car in ac1 was my all time favorite cup car in all Sims.
    But now the R3E cup car is so much better.
    The driving behavior is so good!
    You feel the car start rotating under brake and on exit you can nail the throttle down and you have so much traction.
    You feel everything, understeer, oversteer, you can get out of corners with power slide when you want.
    You can steer the car with brake and gas input into and out of corners.
    It's really amazing.
    Sector 3 your physics guru is doing a really great job!
    I can't wait to get my fingers on the DTM92 when they get the physics update.

    But I have two questions.
    1. Does the RUF RT12 GT3 have the new physics?
    2. Can you tweak the default setup for this car? Because the default setups for the Porsche GT3R is much better than the one for the RUF GT3

    WOW. Didnt expect this to be much more than a minor adjustment but boy was i wrong. Wanted to do just a lap or two to have a little listen and ended up driving until i ran out of fuel. Just amazing what a bit of noise can do :D

    OMG!!! This new update is just unbelievable! The new sounds from 911 GT3 R and 911 Cup I have no words. I've noticed some handling and ffb improvements with 911 GTR3 R. Love it!!!!!!!! Keep on coming. Sector 3/ Raceroom makes me smile and gives me joy.

    What about tyre heating in the new WTCR cars? In the test drive there is only optimal tyre temperature, that´s why I ask.

    Maybe someone else created the previews because the person creating them normally is on holiday :D
    - Different shadow (lighter)
    - Different angle
    - Looks like more contrast

    They stand out when you browse the store... maybe its on purpose to catch the eye :D
    No big deal but a bit inconsistent.

    They probably drive very good though.
    I dusted off my wheel to do some racing again, it seems R3E had some nice updates!

    I must say, the Porsche GT3R and Cup sounds are now superb. How did you do the trick? @Anthony Monteil ?
    Did you compromise your principles and added something artificial now?

    No matter what you did, it worked.

    now transmission just needs to be louder than the engine. or did you turn volume of the transmission a bit down? I usually have both at maximum.

    Damn thats now a pissed-off mean screaming porsche. Nice.

    But even better are the TCRs. Had great races today, with A.I. and Multiplayer. And yes, dont overdrive and you are faster. Such a great feel.

    Tomorrow i have to test the Saleen, new V8 sound? Im curious.

    But i have to ask, when will the magic happen to DTM/Touring classics? i need dis...:p

    Really great update. Finally the rear view mirror has a higher res. That was a real game breaker for me.
    Had a few great races on the RedBull Ring and Zandvoort.
    Is there a change in the AI behaviour as well? It looks like the adaptive AI has become stronger after the update.

    The 911 GT3 sound is pure porn :p Been on the ring for a while.

    By the way, i noticed that the chat, finish race count time, people joining or leaving the server & refuelling notifications/windows are not centered anymore (on an ultra wide 34” 21:9@3440x1440). Didn’t find a way to move or scale them. Also, the pit stop menu shifted more to the left. Haven’t experienced this before this update. Is there any work around?
    Thanks

    Sounds great. Hopefully they don’t adopt the sound of the new 2019 GTE in the future. Really don’t care for the raspy sound. Too similar to the Ford GT
