    Shall we have a game of guess where the parts come from? From the airbox back it's almost identical to the 1990 Ferrari. The rear wing is wrong for that car though.

    IT does remind me on the Tyrrell, though.

    Yes, I was a IndyCar / Champ Car fan in the late 90s until the early 00s and yes the FR US car was a nice surprise in 2017, but the design of the Dallara DW12 is really ugly in comparison to the new FR X-90 car. One of the reasons why I still hope for a next R3E project called "FR US-19" or "FR US-20" with a thematic focus on a digital copy of this beauty:

    Never got why people didnt like the 2015-2017 indycars. Their beauty is the reason i started following the series. The new one aint bad but nowhere near the previous one imo

    Now with Automobilista 2 on it's way can you step up the game, S3? I'm not asking for everything over night but gives us something more, not only content, please? Although, there are never enough tracks xD If I have to ask for something first would be the multiplayer part. Official series, ratings and so on.

    But with actually good physics now ;)

    But seriously, Sector 3, I love you, but if AMS 2 turns out the way I expect (Reiza physics magic + PCars graphics) then you and I might not see each other for awhile :p

    ...

    Who am I kidding... I just can't quit you guys (too much money invested already) :p

    To me they look ugly as hell. o_O Not as bad as modern F1 cars though but still.

    One car with different engine sounds I guess. They all have 680 hp and share the same models, even the steering wheel is the same.

    They do differ physics-wise tho.

    My guess on this is that they were once again faced with a terrible choice. It would definitely be nice if there were nuances regarding the bodykits and a somewhat more refined interior, but that would probably have meant waiting for several more months.

    I think it's a fair compromise they found, after all you'll be able to get 3 totally-not-F1-fantasy-open-wheelers for the price of one.
    And maybe the day will come where they have a little breathing room and can update the visuals (which aren't final in those vids, remember it's still WIP).

    do you ever read the developer update posts?
    only a small part of that is talking about new content. And if you don't bring new content at all over a period.. the next guys come and complain why there is no new content.

    I have the same question, the cars will probably be presented like they do with the GTR3 cars.

    In order to answer some questions :

    The FR90 is one 3D chassis, but three different physics/engines and three different sounds.

    Further details will come very soon ;)

    At the end of the ‘80s and beginning of the ‘90s those “one” “ugly” cars drove with either a V8 (Ford, Yamaha, Judd), V10 (Honda, Renault) or a V12 (Ferrari, Lamborghini). Those where the days ;). Besides slight physics differences they don’t even are (and thus need to be) that different from each other.
