Login or Register an account to download this content

CART Extreme is an official revision of the original Racing Line Development´s CART Factor mod for rFactor with direct participation from some of the original developers and soon available for Game Stock Car Extreme.

CART Extreme includes :
  • Several graphics improvements (updated car shaders)
  • Moveable driver arms (from TV view only)
  • Revamped physics
  • Revamped sounds
Along with all features from the original mod:
  • Full CART 1998 field (28 cars)
  • 4 unique chassis (Reynard, Lola, Swift & Penske)
  • 4 engines (Honda, Ford, Mercedes, Toyota)
  • 2 tyre manufacturers (Firestone & Goodyear)
  • 4 chassis specifications for road, short oval and speedway tracks
  • 4 or 5 boosts (depends on tracks, roads, 4, Ovals, 5)
You can find two of my videos here and here.

Some tracks are also being updated to GSCE standards to suit this release - you can find Long Beach, Fontana & Vancouver already from the Game Stock Car Extreme modding section. Vanport, Laguna Seca et Cleveland to come.

How to change chassis according to track :

Go to the trackconfigsbase.ini file you can find in each constructor folder here : GameData\Vehicles\CART_Extreme\1998 and look at the name of your track (first line of the .gdb). Use this syntax for each constructor :

Chassis Configuration=0=road (default)
Chassis Configuration=1=short oval
Chassis Configuration=2=speedway
Chassis Configuration=3=superspeedway

PS : delete any previous version of this mod before installing this one

What an amazing mod, an absolute blast! One of my favourite cars to drive for sure. Thank you guys for all your hard work on this mod throughout. Very appreciative to be able to drive this one, for me its to good to just be considered a "Mod" in GSC.
What realfeel settings should be set?
Patrick Giranthon
Not sure you ask in the right section. Realfeel is included ingame, no need to do anything

Nick, Dave, Renato and Dom made a fantastic mod for rFactor 1. I was fortunate to be around the development and the release of CARTfactor 1.00 instantly made this the best content available in rF. Given the people who worked on it, this mod is also on par with the latest GSC stock content.

Thank you for the conversion and tweaks, Patrick, and also for the diligence in giving this the deserved attention and support. Getting the expert help you got was excellent and only helped bring this to the forefront of Stock Car Extreme content. We were in dire need of a full series with different cars and performance, now we have it.
Better and better!
