    Actually, the Scirocco fighted with many cars along its ETCC-DRM career, and no less than three BMW models entered the Gr.2 grids : 320i , 530i, 3.0 CSL.
    Among the others competitors, we could find the Alfa Romeo Alfetta GT, Alfa Romeo Alfasud Sprint, Ford Escort RS, Skoda 130 RS, Audi 80 GTE, Jaguar XJ 12C, Mercedes 450 SLC, Mazda RX3, etc...
    What a nice era ! :hearteyes:

    Great era for cars, just as it was a great era for music but that's about all, fashion was atrocious! Didn't someone put a piccy of a nice, blue Group 2 Capri at some point?

    The 635CSi also raced in the final two seasons of Gp2. Also note the 320i ran in both 4-cyl & 6-cyl iterations.

    Yes, and i *might* have mentioned this before, but i really would love to see 3.0 CSL in game at some day. You decide the group, 2 or 5, i'm in anyway. :D:D

    I don't care about FWD cars at all, but i bought Scirocco anyway because it's historic car and i must admit it is actually quite fun to drive. And it does sound gorgeous.

    When an Scirocco locks brakes, the marks on the asphalt are not drawn instantly. A small interval of time elapses and the two black marks are drawn after the car has already moved away.

    I was about to say that and we even mentioned it internally this morning.
    If we could add the fenders to the current 635 Gr.A, it would make a nice buddy for the Scirocco ;)

    Is AI affected by tyre temps?

    Example:
    At Anderstorp/Scandinavian Raceway short, you cook your left front no matter what, when pushing. (already counteracted by pressure, suspension, throttle management, steering and camber etc.)

    The Scirocco falls into a little deep after around 18 minutes on such a track and AI is just rocketshipping away out of left corners especially.

    I could decrease AI strength (was at 110), but i don't want to qualify pole all the time...That's why i thought about it.

    As I expected, this is a nice toy to whip it around the Swedish rumble trails.

    I don't know if it's me, but I don't feel well the suspension like the others cars updated, for a old car, the FFB is light. And I don't feel well the weight transfer, it's a little bit flat, liveless.

    yes but I dont feel the suspension like the old cars, or the new cars, maybe it's designed to be like that.

    It's got all the latest suspension modelling going on so I guess it is what it is. I can't say I've noticed any issues with it to be honest.

    it's not issue, it's a feeling, so I guess it's designed to be like that. Some old cars, like the porsche have a very strong boucing suspension f/ weight feeling, it's cool, with this car I can't feel, but it's probably the design.

    the fact is for me, with the Audi GT2 it's the same, I can't feel the suspension and weight transfers, unlike the Porsche GT2, the best new feeling, when it was released, for me Porsche GT2 was the first car where I feel the suspension.
    But for example with Audi GT2, I can't feel it too, like for the Volkswagen...

    edit : fixed for Audi GT2, in fact it depends of the track
