    Random Game Stock Car screenshot added for good measure?? 😀

    • TheFourHorsemen

      No, it’s part of the DLC! 😉

      • Markus Ott

        Yeah, whole GSCE has the poly count of one car of pCARS, so it may be fit quality wise ^^

  • oldgrumpydave

    Really enjoying the LMP1 and the GT Edition car. The rest I’m not crazy about, but those two cars are well worth the price

    • Leynad

      The LMP1 is nowhere near as fast as the other ones, at least at Le Mans with wing-settings on 1/1.

      • Chillisteak

        Am I doing something wrong here? I run zero wing at Le Mans

      • Bakkster

        Does pCARS model the Le Mans-specific aero on the cars?

        The Toyota was on pole at Le Mans last year, but they also had a cheater wing that was banned immediately afterward.

      • pez2k

        The physics thread for the pack mentions that they’ve made an effort to simulate the flexible wing, so I presume the car is in LM spec:

      • Bakkster

        Neat. I presume it’ll be on the cars everywhere, but only ever engage at Le Mans.


    • Chillisteak

      Totally agree, that GT Edition Rocket Bunny has become my fav GT4 car now.
      Not a big fan of LMP1 cars but that Toyota is a pleasure to drive, even if it ain’t the quickest.

  • gimmelbop

    Too new cars for me so a pass on this one.

  • melanieuk1

    Purchased this morning, with Ten more other games, during the steam Halloween sales, the Japanese Car Pack is not bad for £2.89, keep them DLCs coming SMS.

    • Chillisteak

      £2.89 for 2 cars, pretty good price if you ask me. Didn’t realise there was a Steam sale on mind, now where did I put my Wallet?

  • Lukas Macedo

    Lovely pack. Spent the evening racing online with the Rocket Bunny GT4 car. My favorite one, so far.

  • Patrik Marek

    those details on the engine .. just wow

    • Paul Maguire

      That is rather ridiculous, do all the models have this level of detail?

      • pez2k

        Yeah, they generally have detailed undersides too, just in case you flip them. There were ideas to have a bit of a showcase for the detail they were putting into the models, but they more or less got put to one side to focus on the racing.

  • Chillisteak

    Only recently started driving LMP1, so I’m still getting used to how much speed these things can carry.
    I was getting 3:39s in the wet haven’t actually raced it in the dry yet. I’ll let you know what I manage.
    But the Toyota probably isn’t the best everyone seems to be slating it, but it’s the first LMP1 car I’ve felt comfortable in.

    • IJOJOI

      Actually you can be VERY fast with the toyota, the point is, that you really have to control the throttle out of corners, so that the KERS doesn’t discharge.

      Then you easily reach the higher Speeds on the straights. 😉
