rFactor 2's LMP2, GTE class gets Goodyear tire model update

The cars rFactor 2 LMP2 and GTE received an update on Tuesday, July 5, 2022, which included new Goodyear tires, physics and other changes in the quality of life among the changes.

There has been one update is applied to the LMP2 and GTE classification of cars on rFactor 2 platform from Tuesday (July 5, 2022). The comprehensive update includes seven cars, including six GTE-class cars and the Oreca 07 LMP2.

With the update, all cars received some quality of life updates, some of which were also applied to Formula Pro and other content earlier this year. Updates include the new rFactor 2 audio engine support, shift protection, improved braking and engine cooling, an updated Balance of Performance among the GTEs, and perhaps most importantly, a new tire and physics model.

The cars that received the update include:

  • Oreca 07 LMP2
  • Ferrari 488 GTE
  • Aston Martin Vantage GTE
  • BMW M8 GTE
  • Corvette C7.R GTE
  • Corvette C8.R GTE
  • Porsche 911 RSR GTE

WHAT IS NEW?

For the new tires, they have been updated in conjunction with Goodyear to become more realistic in their behaviors. This in turn brings with it new physics, which will also include updated BoP parameters to keep the competition fair and balanced. The updated tires are now also marked with the Goodyear logos on the sidewalls.

The shift protection is also a great addition to these cars. In last year’s 24-hours Le Mans virtual series final at the Circuit de la Sarthe, the Mercedes-AMG Petrona’s team was ruled out early after a faulty downshift, the virtual engine overpowered and forced a retirement. Although it did not happen often, it was something that could ruin someone’s chances. Now with the update, this should be less common.

In addition to all this, the engine cooling and brake cooling systems are updated with new parameters on the cars, and all this is perfectly timed for those who are about to get involved in the preparations for this year’s iteration of Le Mans virtual series, is expected to start in September.

The details of the update for these seven cars are all listed below. What do you think about these changes? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
