Watch The DRM Revival Mod Fan Trailer

Jco176 has put together a fan trailer for the upcoming DRM Revival mod for Assetto Corsa.

Not many mods are popular enough to have their own fanbase but the DRM Revival mod is certainly an exception, having been one of the most popular rFactor mod over the years.

Now, the team is gearing up to bring the mod to Assetto Corsa and Jco176 helps everyone shorten the waiting time by putting together a fan trailer of the new mod for everyone to enjoy.

Based on Germany’s hugely popular Deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft series that had its heyday in the late 70s and early 80s, the DRM Revival mod features iconic Group 5 racers such as the Porsche 935, the Ford Zakspeed Capri, the BMW 2002 Turbo, Toyota Corolla, Zakspeed Escort, the BMW 320S and others.

The mod became an instant favorite on rFactor due to the attention to detail and the spectacular sounds, so Assetto Corsa users can look forward to a must-download addition to their simulation.

DRM Revival for Assetto Corsa is expected to be released sometime in 2017.

    it would be nice to have a few cars that can race against each other and are not GT3s .. for a change

    • PurpleMist

      We have the DTM in AC too which is alot of fun. But I agree, more cars in the same group is always welcome no matter if its old, new, fast or slow. 🙂

    The backfires look stupid and unrealistic. They were far better in the old rF1 version of the mod.

    • Francesco Kasta

      They probably installed the “Flamethrower exhaust kit”.

    • noroardanto

      Very minor problem to a fantastic mod imho

      • melanieuk1

        Anything minor, will be turned into something big, only because it’s not on rFactor 2, especially by anonymouse, you should know that by now.

      • anonymouse

        Unlike you, I’m not on an ‘anti-rF2-like’ crusade directed towards other games, plus I don’t even care and/or play and/or mod rF2 so your cheap attempt at stirring up yet another drama falls short.

        But since I’m a generous person, I’ll repost what I’ve already sent you a while back that you conveniently ignored. As you label me as a wide mouth, I’ve told you already that I can and actually do make scratch content aswell. It has been sitting like this for months because I don’t have the time to finish it, but the point still stands. It’s a scratch made model that you can’t find for any simulation, not from this current generation (and the next one which will start with pCARS 2) nor for the past generation (rF1, GTL, GTR2, nKPro). You still have to prove me wrong, I’ve been waiting for an answer for 2 months now, perhaps you’re using Internet Explorer and the comment linked below didn’t popup for you yet?

        Oh and no, that turd made almost 20 years ago and converted from SCGT included in a mod called “rFactor Black Edition” doesn’t count. The mesh is bad and the physics is worse.

        Also, backfires are not really a minor thing, not in a mod such as this, at least. Group 5 was all about cars with at least 600bhp under the hood (840bhp in qualifying trim for the 308 GTB, which tore down the 935s at Daytona, even if just for 1 lap and a half) that had flamethrowers as exhaust systems. So, huge flames coming out of the exhaust pipes are kind of the whole point. Flames popping out like that are not realistic, they look like an orange umbrella opening and closing every few seconds. The same mod 10 years ago on rF1 got it vastly better, and especially it got it right. As they are the same people behind the same mod, I would hope that they get it right further down the development road. Vanilla AC cars got them mostly right on similar sportscars from this era of racing, so modders should be able to get them right aswell.

        The real life classic DRM cars i have seen in real life indeed threw huge backfires at least 1 meter long. You would almost use it as weapon to burn the guy behind you.

      • melanieuk1

        ” I’ll repost what I’ve already sent you a while back that you conveniently ignored.”

        I did not ignore your original post back then, there is a reason why I did not comment on your work, I will leave that up to you to guess why I didn’t comment on it.

      • anonymouse

        Yeah, it’s hard to find something to attack people with when you’re proven wrong.

      • One Shot

        Man you sound like a 3 year old…

      • melanieuk1

        I’m sorry, but when you compare mods that are available for Assetto corsa and project CARS, your work is just rubbish and dated, that is the reason why I didn’t comment on your work, but you asked for my opinion so there I gave it you, though I didn’t want to, I respect what I was told, if I don’t have anything good to say I shouldn’t say anything, but you asked for it, and I didn’t back then so now you know, I just cant help being brutely honest.
        Have a happy Easter.

      • anonymouse

        Having a loud mouth like yours goes hand in hand with being brutally honest. You’re quick to criticize, but have literally zero knowledge to back it up. Shows us your amazing mods then. You speak as if you were a 3D modeler with 20 years of experience, but so far you have yet to prove that you know what you’re talking about. Also, you’re quick to state the obvious, but conveniently forget (or perhaps, it’s your ignorance doing the talking for you) that you and I play different games that work in different ways.

        What would be the point of creating a 3D model with at least +200k polygons (as it’s the bare minimum for AC/pCARS1 although some madmen go even further peaking at +350k) for a game that can’t handle it in a full field of 60+ cars? I don’t need to go in that OCD-level of detail, I don’t play a screenshot simulator, I play a racing simulator. Being 11 years old, an outdated one perhaps, I’ll give you that.

        As per the rubbish comments, coming from you it’s something that makes me smile. I once had a bunch of blank canvas, but I’ve learnt how to paint and now I have some nice paintings on my wall.

        Where are yours? Oh, right..

      • melanieuk1

        Many people go to galleries to look at art work, and they are not artist themselves, yet they have an opinion on what they are viewing, and calm down you did ask for my opinion.

    • melanieuk1

      You claim to be a modder, lets see your mods then. show us your realistic work that everyone is waiting to drive or race on.

      • Richard Hessels

        So only modders can have a valid opinion?

    • One Shot

      I hate seeing stupid comments like this. Why the f*ck do you think its a WIP? It’s to sort out little rough edges like that…

  • Glen Orpheus

    im taking it that copyright was optained from the Prodigy to use their music ?
    and that the relevent monies gained from PRS will be rushing its way to them ?

  • RapidRefund

    Awesome just ignore anonymous nit picky feedback this mod group is top notch in a league that would include the likes of Enduracers
