Hi all!

Hope all is well with you! Just a quick question, the made up Prototypes (mainly RWD) have they been updated to 2016 P1 / 2 rules or just transferred over from PCARS as they was? And is the P20 (P2) now have proper paddle shifteds instead of the guy doing a stick shift per say?

Can't wait to play it.

We did update the P30 and the Marek RP339h models to be consistent with rules from 2014 to fit alongside the Audi R18 e-tron quattro (2MJ class) and Toyota TS040 (6MJ class). They split the difference and run as 4MJ cars; the RWD P30 with 200kW peak power from hybrid system and the Marek RP339h a 260kW system, both going to all four wheels and pushing them to 775hp and 875hp, respectively.

The P20 LMP2 model had some updates in line with things we learned doing the Ligier JS P2. Nothing too wildly different there, other than updating it for all our new physics model tech, as the P2 class was fairly stable from 2014 up through 2016.

so there should not be a huge difference now in LMP1 like there was in Pcars1 when the new Audi DLC went it?

Love this answer! Thank you SMS :)

So the physical dimensions - particularly the width - is unchanged, right? At least the hybrid systems got modernised and compliant with the 2014-16 rules, which is good and puts it on a playing level with those 2014-16 LMP1 cars (all we need to wait is if the 919 will ever appear on pCARS 2...).

Right, we left those two at 200cm wide overall instead of narrowing to 190cm. They did get the narrower tires that came with 2014+ P1H regulations. It has worked out nicely for a balanced group of cars in testing here. The differences in hybrid capacity means some tracks favor one car over the others, but on the whole, and especially at Le Mans, it's all feeling like a good fit.
