T5 Touring Car Series (Payware Mod) – Now Available

UnitedRacingDesign have released their T5 Touring Car Series mod for rFactor 2 which is now for sale on their website.

The T5 is a fictional series featuring 500hp shilouette touring car racers which, purely by coincidence, share a striking resemblance with the cars from a very popular European touring car series.

Both the Aura T5 and the Bayro T5 are available individually, coming with six liveries each and selling for 5€ a piece. The cars are also available in a combo pack for 10€, buyers of the pack will also receive the third car model that will complete the series for free.

This is a very interesting experiment as pay ware mods are not commonplace in sim racing. Are you buying this mod? And if not, is it because you don’t like the content or because you are against payware in general? Share your view in the comment section below!

    I guess what they say is true:racing game enthusiasts are the biggest birds of video game.

    Only for be clear, the mod delivers 3 cars at 10 euros, first 2 cars then the third, so they cost 3,3333 euros for car.

      True, it comes out like that but the problem is not the money how some say, the problem it that it brings problems to none modders actually, especially to those that are not modding or they try and even than they fail.

      Except the cars should have identical physics and only the skin is different.

        Why should they???? The real life DTM sorry “T5″ cars dont all drive the same yes there mached for speed and waight but thats it. It does not say its a league mod and even then it still should not.

        That’s incorrect, modern DTM cars do drive the same, because they are. They’re more identical than a NASCAR car. The three manufacturers collaborated to design a common safety cell, aero, and suspension that they put a spec Judd engine in. The only things different between the cars are the headlights, grille, and roof, none of which really affect the cars.

        “For this reason, identical assembly components are now used in all performance relevant areas of the DTM.”

        You may wish to read that again my old chum. It does not say anyy thing about a Judd engine for a start and you would have to be out of your tree to think the “BIG 3″ would use any thing other then there own. As for them having the same safty cell all that is, is what the rest of the tub is made around IE the cockpit Bracks are the same gearbox is the same the engine’s are made by BMW MERC and Audi but >>>the inlet system must be fitted with two air restrictors with no more then a max diameter of 28mm. Over then that the V8 has to be the same 90 degrees on all 3. The list goes on.

        I think you’re right. It’s a shame the DTM regs are so hard to come across. Some places say the cars are identical, others say they get lots of freedom. Seems they use the same parts, but free choice of geometry. Maybe a bit like the old Super Touring days, where design is free below the wheel centerline.

        That said, it does highlight the issue with a mod like this. Without any data, the cars might as well be identical, because the only other thing he can do to make them different involves blindly guessing at geometries (not to mention at the spec component values). Does the BMW have more kingpin inclination or less?

        If you mean in game i dont know tbh as i have not got the mod yet. As for in real life as you have said with out the data for all 3 cars your guess is as good as mine lol

        In reality. Like I said, that’s always been my issue with mods, for a car like this there’s absolutely no way to know what these cars are using. Even the engines, getting a dyno chart is impossible. If a car is faster is it because of more top end HP or more low rev torque?

    It is inadmissible openly(frankly) to charge “mod” 5€!!!
    I hope that ISI is going to move!!!

      You don’t have any delete posts. But there is one you made 30 minutes earlier with pretty much the same repeated words which is still here. Maybe you missed it.

    I dont want to say how i think it will go as i dont know but i hope it all works out for you guys. On a side note found this today and thought it was so funny http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=epVQArLLmmM

    OK well I took the plunge and bought the T5 series package for €10 last night and gave it a try. I was just hoping I wasn’t going to regret it.

    I will say right now that these are pretty much my favourite cars in rF2 so far.

    But.. that is not to the cost of the ISI ones because I also love the Clio, Corvette etc. It is more down to the fact that they suit my style more. I am an F1 nut for those that hadn’t realised :) and as such I like grip and being able to push hard (for the dirty minded, yes yes we are still talking motor racing).
    These cars have grip. Plenty. But if you really push these things hard they will start to understeer and become less stable to being pushed out of corners, especially off camber ones, and will spin you off. Drop the rear wing a bit and it starts to get trickier while you go for your laptime.

    On the TV replay, the grip is evident but they seem to look and behave just as they should. It feels right to me but I’m no expert on DTM style cars.

    Heat haze from the exhausts is a lovely touch if a tiny bit exaggerated. Sounds need a bit of an update compared to the real thing but as a they are meant to be fictional, they are fine atm. Lights working, wipers working, driver anim is there.

    I spent 3 hours on it last night at Mid Ohio and it was a blast. Then I remembered that I forked out money for these 2 cars with a 3rd promised later. I don’t feel robbed. Nice job on the mod itself Ales. Thumbs up here.

    Here is a small vid of one of my early runs as I started to push once the track had rubbered in a bit. http://racingrenders.com/T5-MidOhio-F1racer.avi

    I won’t charge you for the video in case YouTube sue me :)

      Did the two cars drive any differently?

      • http://racingrenders.com/ F1Racer

        I`ll be honest, I only tested the Bayro that night. I suspect the if there is any difference with the Aura, I might not pick it up. :)

    I wouldn’t mind paying for good content and I believe that the creators deserve something for their hard work. However, it must be very inexpensive since there is already so much great content out there free of charge.

    Im sure it is and im glad people love there work, really. But becase we offer something diferent it cant be bad right away. But we chated about it allready, its hard to please everybody :D
