Please read these few notes before asking for anything. Email me for any suggestion, help, improvement: slowmotion@symracing.net

1. I assembled this mod for my personal pleasure in fighting with some friends of mine. This is not an official release related to the RFE Plugin Series for rFactor1, even if I'm the co-author of the plugins.

2. I want to thank SRZ - SymRacingzone.net for the authorization to modify their mod called "SRZ Trofeo Abarth".

3. The mod allows the "500 Assetto Corse" and the "695 Evoluzione", that can be driven together or like a single class. You can enjoy smooth differences in driving the different classes.

4. I want to thank Nicola Acciarri for setting the physical coefficients of both classes, 500 Assetto Corse and 695 Evoluzione following my request to have a mod that can simulate the real cars, but that at the same time can allow great fights and different strategies during a race of 30 minutes and over, depending of the chosen compound.
The mod has been also tuned for SP races: please READ Nicola's suggestions into his read me file!

5. The mod is READY FOR RFE PLUGIN SERIES WITH THE DIFFERENT LOOK OF TIRES' COMPOUNDS AND SIDES. TO ENJOY THIS FEATURE AND THE VARIABLE WEATHER CONDITIONS ON RFACTOR1 YOU MUST INSTALL RFE PLUGIN SERIES 1.2 AND DRIVE ON ONE OF THE HUNDREDS OF TRACKS UPDATED TO RFE PLUGIN SERIES.
IF YOU ARE NOT YET USING THE PLUGINS, PLEASE DOWNLOAD THEM FROM: http://symracing.net/rfeseries/forum/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=908
HERE YOU CAN ALSO FIND TRACKS UPDATED TO RFE PLUGIN SERIES: http://symracing.net/rfeseries/forum/viewforum.php?f=30

6. The mod comes with its template, so, if you like to enhance the quality and number of cars, as well as if you like to create a Trofeo Abarth series for a specific country you are free to make it.

7. If you are interested into porting this mod to rFactor2, please contact me at slowmotion@symracing.net

8. Some more tech info about tires behavior: the mod allows 3 different compounds, soft - hard - wet. The differences between soft and hard are a compromise of different wear, friction heating, below/above optimal temperature performances, grip that, all together, allow to plan different strategies depending of the race duration. Please note that only using RFE Plugin Series you can fully feel the different behavior.

Great stuff mate! I always prefer mods made for ones personal pleasure to those faceless 'mainstream' mods everyone thinks are great (even if they're not).

Cheers!

I answer quickly here... a little bit OT...
I suggest you to read carefully the info related to RFE installation and requisites here: http://symracing.net/rfeseries...wtopic.php?f=32&t=908
and in case to try the RFE 1.2 Test Pack Installer that contains rFactor + RFE + 1 mod RFE and 1 track RFE. Install it as a fresh installation and try it in a local testday.
After that (and after you have seen the different weather options working, intalle the 500/695 Abarth mod into the same folder and enjoy it.

For other info please post into the appropriate area of the RFE Forum: http://symracing.net/rfeseries...um/viewforum.php?f=11

PS: ABOUT THE MOD: Please note this mod is not intended for offline racing seasons and this option has been locked.

Thank you!
