Mak Classic Cars – rFactor 2 Open Beta Coming Up

Mak Corp has announced the upcoming release of their Mak Classic Cars mod for rFactor 2.

Mak Corp has announced the upcoming release of their Mak Classic Cars mod for rFactor 2.

The mod’s first open beta version will bring the legendary 1991 Mazda 787B Group C car to the simulation, including various liveries for this iconic machine.

The 787B is one of the most famous Le Mans cars of all time, being the first rotary-powered as well as the first and only Japanese car to win the event in 1991, driven by Johnny Herbert, Volker Weidler & Bertrand Gachot.

Mak Corp is relying on community feedback to fine-tune the physics of the car so beta testers are encouraged to provide plenty of feedback after the mod’s release tomorrow.

More cars are scheduled to be added to the mod later, including the Mercedes Benz Sauber C11 that is already in production. Furthermore, Mak Corp is also looking to branch the mod out to more platforms later, including rFactor & Assetto Corsa.

    I wonder how many of us in the community have driven one of these things to be able to give any constructive or useful feedback?

      Lol. It will end up having the Megane physics. I’ll stick with ISI’s stuff.

      • mclaren777

        Regarding the Megane physics: One could only hope.

      I tried one in two separate Gran Turismo games, so I know what I’m talking about.
      But seriously, let me start the feedback: Not enough grip.

      • bduddy

        As a GPL player, I loudly counter that it has way too much grip

      • Pvt Stash

        I’ll play idiot and claim it has too much of both at the same time and it’s the wrong shade of purple… 🙂

      • Realkman666

        They just didn’t do their research. If they looked around on classic racing websites, they would have seen that Mazda changed paint compounds in March 1991 and that the reflections couldn’t have been this purple for Le Mans in June. Amateurs!

      • Realkman666

        Looks like you were right.

      • Olivier Prenten

        For sure your experience with Gran Turismo is a reliable feedback!
        Ah ah ah…

      I wonder how many people take that logic into consideraton when whinging about fhe physics of other cars perform in sims.

      • Olivier Prenten

        That’s incredibly TRUE! 😉

        Not many, fortunately. Because that logic is flawed. The car in a sim doesn’t have to feel the same way as a real one to be realistic.

        And it was said and confirmed many times that real racersfeedback is not so extremely useful as one would expect because real driver will *always* tell you the whole experience is very different because of lack of gforces.
        If a simcar does 20% better cornering Gs than it should in real situation you know it’s wrong, no need to have real experience on hand.

        Etc. etc.

        Totally agree.

  • Chris Wright

    Completely excited to try a Group C car in rF2.
