Grand Slam 1.0 – Released

Following the two betas released a year ago, Team Players have released the final version of their Grand Slam mod for rFactor, bringing the DP class of the 2006 Grand Am Rolex Sports Car Series to the simulation.

The mod includes four different Daytona Prototype models made by Riley, Crawford, Fabcar and Doran. The cars are powered by various V8 engines from manufacturers such as BMW, Porsche & Lexus. All paint schemes from the 2006 season are included,  matching templates to paint your own car are also provided.

Originally started by D3 as a planned commercial game, Team Players have took up the task to finish what D3 started and iDT continued to develop. The whole project was initially announced at the 2006 Rolex 24 Hour race at Daytona and comes to a conclusion with the final release of the mod four years later.

    I am wondering if this has anything to do with the wheel/pedal manufacture.

    Shawn uses high end pedals (not sure what brand) and I have a G25.

    When I first get on track I do feel the lack of braking, but after I run a lap I have no problems locking up all 4 wheels.

    Others have said the brakes are just fine while some have said they don’t work at all…

    I would be interested to hear what wheel/pedal combo you guys have.

    I don’t know what else to say…

    I have talked to Shawn and X-ter (one of the main beta testers) and we seem to be in agreement that there is nothing wrong…

    If we listen to all the comments on the forums it seems about split 50/50 with guys that love it and guys that hate it…

    Maybe that is telling me we got it right!

    So, those of you that hate it, let us know what wheel/pedals you have. Maybe that is the issue…

    Well I’m using a G25 and overall the braking seems alright once you get used to it. Maybe people are comparing it to the enduracers or ILMS LMP cars which rightfully have incredibly short brake distances.
    One thing I will say is that I find them pretty difficult to lockup which means you can run a whole lot of brake bias towards the rear and get away with it. Now I know very little about DPtypes, but I’d be curious about how the real cars are setup.

    I am using Fanatec Porsche GT3RS wheel + ClubSport pedals (pressure sensitive), and have no problems with braking.
    Compared to Enduracers LMS/ALMS mod, the braking distances in the Grand Am mod, are longer with ~ 50m (which is realistic IMO).

    The mod works really well with RealFeel. Great work guys!

    Hi Bob, i have a stock DFP and to me the brakes are fully ok.

    I noticed the brakes temps, running at Daytona RC, are perfect after the first lap.
    Looking to the brake temps in the HUD, i appreciated the finesse of the brakes behaviour, good job by Shawn!
    Also, I can lock the brakes if i brake too hard.

    I guess that, more than the wheel/pedal manifacture, the different sensitivity of the users can be related with the setting they use in the ingame controls panel.

    BTW, an HoF mod for sure! :)

    I use a G25, and even taking all things into consideration I do find the breaks a little weak. And I cannot lock my breaks even after 10 laps…

    Shwan and Dave are looking into the issue, Even though it seems about split between “Like it” and “Hate it” we don’t want to just dismiss this as a non-issue.

    I am drawing a conclusion from all the comments that it isn’t really and issue if you are in a race type situation but it is if you are just stomping on the brakes to see how quick you can stop.
