    KTM X-Bow RR

    [​IMG]

    While you may already be familiar with the KTM X-Bow R, the "RR" makes its simracing debut in RaceRoom.

    [​IMG]

    Compared to its little sister the X-Bow R, the RR is recognizable at first glance thanks to its additional aerodynamic parts.

    [​IMG]

    Then once you get in, you realize that all the features of the road-legal version have been removed, in order to reduce the weight.

    [​IMG]

    Also the monocoque is made completely of composite carbon fibre material.

    [​IMG]

    The overall result is a race machine weighing just under 800kg equipped with an Audi 2.0 TFSI delivering 360bhp!

    [​IMG]

    Car Data:

    • Mid-engine open two seater
    • Carbon composite monocoque
    • Audi 2.0 TFSI. Turbo-charged 4-cylinder.
    • 360hp @ 6800rpm
    • 500Nm @ 3600 rpm
    • 6 speed manual
    • Redline @ 7500rpm
    • Shiftpoint @ 6800-7000rpm
    • 40 liter fuel cell
    • 790kg (dry weight)
    • 37/63 weight distribution
    • 250 kg+ downforce at 200 kph
    • 200/610-17 & 240/640-18 slicks
    • Steering defaults are 792 degrees of rotation with a 25 degrees steerlock

    We've had the pleasure to work on this car with an overwhelming amount of data provided by KTM that allowed @Karsten Borchers to create a highly accurate model of the car while also bringing more insight on suspension models and tyres that will benefit future productions.

    Here are some notes shared by Karsten to the betatesters during development:

    [​IMG]

    More work went into the Suspension Model, as we have added additional support for the very specific chassis of the X-Bow.

    [​IMG]

    30 liveries will be available for the KTM X-Bow RR, giving you a good taste of the X-Bow Battle, KTM's own one-make Series.

    RaceRoom and KTM are very proud to break new ground, and set you up with the chance to win a unique and exclusive motorsport experience. Win the KTM X-Bow #eSport Trophy, and you'll be the guest of #KTM in Austria, all expenses paid. Thats a nice trip in itself, but the kicker is that your final destination is the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg where you will be gifted with a full track day in the awesome KTM X-Bow.

    There are very special prizes for the Trophy podium finishers AND for randomly picked entries. You do not have to be the fastest racer out there to walk away with a handsome reward.

    Awesome, can't bloomin' wait, but it sounds like I'll have some tweaking to do to ensure the Chief gives accurate brake & tyre temp info.

    Out of the blue! Interesting choice, interesting car.

    Hope it really feels distinctively different, because it should, it should be a difficult car to drive in RR, I think. Glad to read about the biting brakes, they are like this in AC as well, and I read that is realistic, they should lock easily. Makes the X-Bow tricky to drive. Its a beast. I nicknamed it "pitbull", in my own language use.

    What i can already say, is that the accurate suspension geometry produces some really nice FFB.
    @Karsten Borchers really outdid himself with this one.

    Just keep in mind, that the RR is equipped with slick tyres, so don't expect it to go sideways through every corner.

    Oh boy oh boy oh boy, the dash even looks pretty damned proper. Day 1 buy and choo choo goes the hypetrain... Although I really hate the X-bow where I've tried it, oh well, THIS TIME WILL BE DIFFERENT. :D

    Sidenote, I know R3E doesn't have proper tripple support but tilt that monitor around and get a wheel S3 programmer dude. :p

    I can see it now "Patch delayed? No stands for you! Midsommar is CANCELLED! Also I am taking your thrustmaster...". The rough life of a software engineer.
