The Greatest F1 mod of 70s
chernikoff1 on Nov-08-2014

Great MOD with 1 flaw, vehichles need to make separate entries in RealFeel because of different phisycs. For instance Ferraris and Renaults are pulling the FFB in the oposite direction.
Otherwise Fantastic.

Maybe you didn't follow the easy procedure to install RFE or you are not using a regular legacy version of rFactor. There are few executable files of rFactor that comes with some equipment (like steering wheel) that are not valid because of use different address memory. On the contrary, the most used 1255F of rFactor Lite by ISI is working perfectly. We have more than 20,000 users that are enjoying RFE and we have only 2 people worldwide that cannot use it due to a hardware incompatibility: a good %! All other people that had problems, solved them installing a fresh instance of rFactor lite with the regular legacy license and one of the several certified mods and tracks, or, in very few cases, reformatting the PC, due to severe problems they had.
We are ready to help you in discovering where the problem is, but of course, you have to spend few time in following our advice. Please, post into RFE forum for specific problems: http;//
Thank you

Problem with the RFE mod is that it doesn't work for so many people. I have Win7 64 bit and I've never ever been able to make RFE work ever.

Hello! Are you aware of the RFE Plugin Series that enhances rFactor adding the variable weather conditions and much more? I'm pleased to invite you to read more about it, to update the mod to be used also with the RFE plugin: I was almost sure to see all new mods ready for rFactor RFE! Thank you!
