One of the cars available for free gets some love with an rFactor 2 USF2000 PBR update released for the 2016 spec open wheeler.
First released for rFactor 2 back in November 2016, it uses a Van Diemen/Elan DP08 chassis, with power from a Mazda MZR 2 litre engine. With tuning from Elite Engines, it puts out 170hp and has a top speed around 150mph. And it’s available with the choice of 5 speed sequential Championship class transmission or the 4-speed H-shift National class configuration.
And after five years it’s time for a refresh, which involved the Studio 397 art team reviewing, updating and ehancing almost every part of the car, including new textures, and the latest PBS shader technology. Plus there’s a new driver model in the cockpit, along with new animations.
