Excellent work as always guys, sadly won't be purchasing as only the 2014 Toyota TS040 Hybrid floats my boat so to speak. Can't wait for the next one.

Great!

Two notes to fix: Toyota GT86 and Scion FR-S (basically the same cars^^) are not centered, they are both 3 cm off center to the right. Can you fix the camera position to center it? looks a bit weird when the gauges are 3 cm to the right etc... Thanks!

Stupid question: Full members are still getting DLCs when released? Or we need to buy?

I've been for a while "offline", I don't know what's changed; before we received the DLCs for free, no? I mean, I got DLCs but never bought.

Thanks.

This is a good release with cool cars. Purchased without hesitation. Not like last month with the Astons :o

TrevorAustin
28-10-2015, 16:40
Only one car interested me, although the rocket bunny is fast enough to be fun, but <3 for the TS040, when every car is $12 plus on iracing and I can still only drive them if I pay a monthly subscription fee, even to test! Only the second DLC car I have really liked, and it is fantastic fun to drive, a lot better than the etron for me.

Anybody thinking it isn't worth it for less than a pint, lol, come on get your head on right! EVen the ones I didn't like were worth buying for that price just in case:)

But the rocket bunny and the TS040 are great cars, other than the FA the LMP is probably my new favourite game car.

Rockefelluh
28-10-2015, 16:44
Excellent pack! I will be buying for sure. Can't wait to throw the FRS around and race the GT car. Also, will be buying Audi pack so I have the e tron and ts040. Now just missing that one elusive brand in LMP1 to complete :D

Jeez, it's $3.50 , My lunch today was more then that (and it was a cheap lunch) . Certainly worth it for even one car .

Hello all,

I know the GT86 from Assetto Corsa but when I drive it has "no soul".
Maybe some of you guys can convince me for buy this DLC...

28-10-2015, 18:22
I also found the one in ac boring. The standard one is more fun in pc and the upgraded ones are really good fun ! I was giggling going full slide in the gt4 first corner at brands hatch and still straightening out and saving it. The lmp1 is already my favourite hybrid easy. For significantly less than 1 pint this is a no brainer imo.

Compared to a ride in a Saturn V rocket, I guess they are abit boring.:D
Never the less, for what your getting at this cheap price, it's a bargain.
And if you don't buy the DLC, I'll come over there and punch you out.,how's that for some convincing.:)

Aha, as if that would have any meaning. Just FYI, I love Project Cars, I didn't complain about all those bugs although there are some minor things that bug me personally. I didn't raise my voice. You are right, that I didn't defend it on this forum, but I did in personal conversation with others who heard bad things about this game. But your attitude of shutting this conversation down, just because I don't have over 2000 posts on this forum like you is just so typical for this community. It's actually the only bad thing about this game and its community. The fanboys that shut down every other opinion, like "you're not licking SM's boots? Fuck off! No need to listen to you." It will be interesting if SMS will learn about how Project Cars was looked upon (not by the fanboys, but everybody else) or if their "we are the best, everyone else's opinion is wrong" attitude will break their neck. Thank you for being the perfect example.

I also made a video driving the new cars the first time. Nothing Special but my reaction to the Scion RB is quite emotional for me hahaha :D

If anyone else finds the TS040 (especially under braking) the rear snaps? I can't find a decent set up to cure it, and also Jack Spade's wheel settings haven't been updated for the TS040 (or for a while from the looks of it?)

If anyone is a whizz at setups let me know, The main problem with the TS040 it's "rear" happy either be taking a corner or under braking, and another thing I've found is it goes through its gears way waaaaaay faster than the R18!? I know it's got nearly 1000bhp but the engine tone goes flat and it seems like am going super slow. I'm pretty sure that's not the case on the TS040 (2014 car anyway!)


I'm interested to see if anyone else agrees with me, I loooove the car but it seems like it peaks to quickly in a straight line and under braking or cornering the rear steps out way to much even with full downforce (yes I'm using a wheel also.)

Ive tried to dial the car in at Spa & Dubai but I'm left feeling super frustrated with it, I don't want a car that feels slow AF and can't take a corner flat out with the rear stepping away from me, ugh! It PAINS me to say this but the R18 e Tron handles better & FEELS faster....WHY!? Can a Dev or Mod please PLEASE reply to me on what can be done to help, cure it? Or will this need a patch?

If anyone can help it's appreciated, but the speed of the car will need patching I think it feels super slow after the hybrid is used up, which in real life can't be the same. Like I say I hope am not the only one who finds these issues, nearly 2 hours of trying to cure it just felt like I've been using a GP2 car *Alonso reference*

Mines doing 288 on the straights at Le Mans, untuned, keeps up with almost everything and hugely out accelerates everything. You must have a duff one, trade it in:) most fun LMP car to date.

I don't believe some of you people

Playing Devil's Advocate here, but it depends how you look at it: these eight cars (inc duplicates) cost 10% of what a lot of people here paid for the whole game. Those figures can be hard to resolve.

Exactly, I don't particularly like LMP cars but will try the TS040 out, you never know may change my mind about these cars, I find full race cars a bit dull but still drive them for something different. Evey car type from road to racing has its own quirks and if you love cars you will use them all. I wasn't keen on the A1 when it was released but now love throwing it around Azure Circuit, great fun and at the price it's a bargain :)

Hello,

What do you think about this DLC ?
For me, it's the worst of DLC. Too Roads, Too Mitsu Evo, no Nissan.
That's the one i don't buy.


Shame that, I think you might be missing out on a lot of fun.




I don't think. I bought Project cars to play with race cars, differents cars. Here, too roads, too mitsu evo, no nissan. It's my personal opinion.

You did ask what people think, and my response was based on having bought the DLC and driven all the cars in the pack. Your opinion that it is the worst DLC so far is based on, well I'm not too sure.
I'm off back to thrash the GT4 Rocket Bunny round Imola, see you later.

Loving the DLC :)

The TS040 is epic. Also enjoying the Toyota Rocket Bunny GT4 more than i expected. Great little car.

The Scion Rocket Bunny is going to take a while to tame :)

Bought the DLC yesterday. I was eager to try the TS040 and the thing is a beast! It is a rocket on acceleration! The GT4 car is very good, the engine sounds: beautiful. I also tried one of the GT86 cars: Very believable road car, easy to drive and it looks good.

The only complaint I can think of is that on a same class race with it, I got a full grid of them all 3 variations which in track they all look the same. I was like, where are the other cars. Maybe I was unlucky when the random car selection ran.

I still have to try the Mitsu boys.

All in all, a lot of value in this pack, thanks! Our LMP1 and GT4 classes are incredible now when it comes to amount of different cars. :yes:

They aren't identical Pink, come on.

You bought the Aston DLC and that had a GTE version of a GT3 car already in the game, but your complaining they included a BUNCH of different builds of the same car in this one. Not to mention the different builds all drive way different from each other so its like having different cars anyway.

Well people can want what they want all they want, it doesnt always mean they'll get it. The Car Wish List thread is what, like 200 something pages now? The TS040, and RB Scion are Race cars, the LAST DLC didnt even feature ONE road car, and even the Old vs. New came with atleast one Race Car. Would I like to see more Race Cars added?? you betcha. But where is it written there WONT be any more added ever? THere is still atleast 2 more DLCs scheduled for 2015, and 3 FOrd Race cars licensed and rumored in the Pipeline, plus a Renault Cup car, plus a slew of classic Lotus Open WHeelers, all race cars. Not to mention the stuff SMS could be working on that we DONT know about. People need to just relax sometimes and enjoy the game for what it has, Or play something else......

Im not saying that Specifically to YOU either Grijo, Im saying it in general. I dont just play Pcars, I play Assetto Corsa too, so I get a fair amount from each one, Pcars doesnt have some really great Race Cars that Assetto Corsa does have, like the Daytona Prototype, and C7R and Blancpain Huracan or Nissan GT3-R, basically AC's whole Roster I would move into Pcars if I could. Just saying if people want something different from their racing game, there are other games that offer different things, but In my opinion, even after the new tire physics in AC, Pcars is still the best Graphically, Physically, and technically. Not to mention its a bargain compared to iracing or even Raceroom.

On the face of it I'm a bit disappointed that there are pretty much 5 cars based on one model (86, GT86, FRS, GT86 RB, FRS RB), but I'm definitely looking forward to trying the GT86 & GT86 Rocket Bunny. I've wanted the GT86 in the game since the beginning.

How different is the 86 from the GT86 though? Surely there can't be that much difference? They would have to feel substantially different for me to drive both of them I think.

From the 5 cars I doubt I'll be using 3 of them all that much TBH. I'll probably just pick my favourite road version & one of the Rocket Bunny versions & stick with those.

No fancy video?

I have no idea why the trailer was not launched along side the release. It's been ready to go, and quite frustrating after putting all that work into it. It Should of been out in an article or one of our official channels. In any case here is essentially the same thing I uploaded earlier this week minus a small tweak to the namco logo at the start.

I haven't driven the Scion, but the 86/GT86 are RHD/LHD respectively, which changes things a bit, I guess. Nice to have the option, IMHO. The GT4 version is a great drive.

Even if you consider the three of them together as one car, the $3.49 is a darn good deal for the two Mistus, a Toyota 86, the GT4 and the LMP car. Less than a buck/car.

Oh don't get me wrong - I will be buying it, at (I think) 2.89 in the UK it's good value. Less than it costs for a coffee on a morning where I work, so I can't argue with the that.

I really hope there are more differences between the 86 & the GT86 than which side the steering wheel is on. Because if there isn't it's a completely bizarre descision to include both IMO.

Great trailer Ed and really a shame your work isnt honoured as much you deserve :( Having said the trailer is great, this is probably the first time I only like the visuals, but the audio...not so much :ambivalence: Dunno if its because this style of music is not my cup off coffee or because its pretty mediocre, but there must be tracks thats fits better to a japanese car pack, I imagine. =/

I really understand what you wanna say and, like I said, Im not here to rant or something like that. And, to be honest, Ill probably buy it because of the Toyota LMP. What Im saying is that the best thing in Project Cars for me are the race cars, even the historical ones like the september free Mercedes. Thumbs up for that car. But lately Project Cars got too much road cars for my taste. I bought all released DLCs because were cheap and not complaining about that. But what I really want? More, more and more race cars!

Go to your STEAM games page, right click on pCars and click over 'download contenct'. Pick the box with the Japanese cars
and after, you only need to chose the way to pay for it.

Concerning to the Nissan talk, give us a brake please.
Many of us would like a few cars in game. There is a thread for that.
This thread is about DLC contenct and not about what we want.

I tried out a couple of them for the first time last night. The TS040 is quite nice. The Toyota GT86 Rocket Bunny seemed very tail happy and on the slow side though. About on par with the BMW. Only raced it twice but it couldn't catch the Aston Martin either time.

Thanks, i am in Canada, I checked last night and it was there in the addons in the playstation store, i did not see it before or i did not see it when i went on demand and did not see it with the available add-ons. normally i go diectly to the on demand first.

I downloaded it, it was nice to get the free car. can't wait for more freebies, plye dit on Azure Coast, love the winding road tracks with scenery. wish there were more like it.

Great, good to hear you're sorted and enjoying it. :)

BODYWORK GRAPHICAL CLIPPING
Just wish to highlight a minor issue with the Toyota TS040-HYBRID, my favourite car by 17 billion miles, where by the tyres clip through the bodywork when the steering is at full lock.

again no endurance contracts..?

LMP1 will give you LMP1 class endurance and the same for LMP2, GT3 ETC.

I would not advise the TS040 at Sakitto as from spoon to Turn 1 their is no breaking so you are a sitting duck.
