that was the issue I encountered in road cars for the past 2yrs. I bought a lot of content but could never find a lot of official races in cars I enjoyed. Asides from the base content, the skippy and Mazda have good turnouts. The Mazda is meh, but the skippy is a blast and has the ntm. Shame about the radical I tried a series withit and could never find a race which was to ad cause the car was a blast. As for the gt3 I didn't care for the mclaren, the vette on the old tire was good but odd at times similar to the caddy, but after watching the isr review of the ruf it got me a bit excited :)
What's this you speak of a ntm on the caddy ?
Love the caddy probably my favorite car in the game.

NTM v 5 is coming on Monday for the Caddy and several other cars with the new build.
A very well done Indy promo was created by some community members
i recently realized I had some iracing credits available from my past 2 seasons so I decided to renew my membership for 1 month as I was really curious how the ntm v5 applied to the majority of track cars would change things. I took a few for a quick spin and from what I can tell it felt slightly better than before with a bit more grip and available detail but no night to day differences. Here's a quick video by empty box regarding the latest updates one of the few guys In sim racing I enjoy watching reviews from him as he says it how it is for every title good and the bad :)
I will watch this video and give you my thoughts of what Empty Box says about the new build. I subscribe to his channel and think he is cool, but he does a little too much whining for my taste. For example, he recently did a 20 minute plus video regarding his displeasure that iRacing did the 2.4 at Daytona on the old build. Boo fricking hoo. The 2.4 was awesome, even though it was on the old build. The only car that ran in the 2.4 that got upgraded to the NTM v5 with the new build was the McLaren, which already was a great car to drive. Empty Box is like a lot of iRacers, and really sim racers generally, we whine and whine and whine without sufficient recognition of how good it is to be a sim racer right now. Yes, iRacing is not perfect, but if you like multiplayer sim racing, with good physics and FFB and races available 24/7, there is nothing better. We also have rFactor 2, Project CARs, Assetto Corsa, GT6 and Forza 5, and a good variety of equipment options for each. In summary, as Darin Gangi recently confirmed in one of his videos, there has never been a better time to be a sim racer than right now.
By the way, I have run extensively with the new build. Other than the many outages that iRacing has had this week, this is clearly the best new build iRacing has released. The Super Late Model is virtually perfect. It has the NTM v 5, which means awesome grip. It sounds and feels great. It will still go around if you stomp the gas after or before the apex of the turn. I plan to run an official race with it this weekend, but have already done dozens of practice laps and have enjoyed every minute.
The Caddy also got the NTM v 5 and an already awesome car is now superb. It definitely has more grip and the problem with low speed spins has been fixed. It also no longer has the issue where your fastest laps were on cold tires, which made no sense. Several of the fast Caddy guys are complaining about the NTM v 5, most likely because they are not faster with it. The point of better tire models is not to help the fast guys get faster. Rather, the point is to help all sim racers better understand what the car is doing. iRacing has definitely accomplished that with the Caddy.
I have not run them yet, but the Kia and the Radical also got the NTM v 5 and the feedback is overwhelmingly positive.
The lucky dog has arrived, which is awesome for oval racing.
There has never been a better time for be part of iRacing than right now.
Won't deny it wasn't a good update, a tire model that's actually starting to act like tire, some what 3d people instead of cardboard cut outs. I wonder if they will be able to add that tech to the trees?
As there been any talk on the forum of having to adjust your wheel setup with the latest build? The short time I tried a few cars I felt the wheel was extremely light and found the cars asses to come around with very little warning and once they start it's nearly impossible to save and usually results in a wild tank slapper :(
kia I felt was the best improvement it's no longer a tail happy fwd with marbles for wheels. It was nice to see the z4 will be the next road car to come to us and donning ton has started! What the hell happened to the civic and the 4 British tracks they announced 2 yrs ago?
Kurupt, I have had to adjust my FFB for each and every car that I have run. For whatever reason, with the changes iRacing made to the build, the FFB settings went way down, meaning to get the same amount of FFB, without clipping and vibration, I had to greatly reduce the in-game FFB settings.
I too would like to see the Civic, but there is a lot of new content coming nonetheless. We got the RUF and Auto Club during last season, we got the incredible Super Late Model with the new build and the BMW is coming soon.
I do not agree with you about the tire model. Yes, the NTM v 5 is clearly the best tire model iRacing has had, but it also is the newest, just as Forza 5 has better graphics than Forza 4, GT6 over GT5, etc. But that does not mean the older tire models were bad; rather, sim racing technology is advancing and iRacing is having to keep up with awesome competition from Assetto Corsa, Project CARS and rFactor 2. I also would argue that Forza 5's tire model is comparable to the PC sims, including iRacing.
I am a total graphics whore and so the crowd graphics are a sore spot for me, but I hardly notice them in race, only during cautions and warm up.
It wasn't a bad tm prior to the ntm v5 but for a premier sim it was lacking a lot in regards to tire data that games of lesser quality were capable of implementing. Tire wear, multiple compounds live tire telemetry for monitoring and setting up your car etc. some of which still are not implemented. For those that don't setup there owns cars it's no biggie but for tuners it's a trial and error game trying to figure out what works. The one thing that always got me was iracing uses opposite values for tuning than other games which can be confusing at times. Anyways none of these negatives have any impact on the overal feel and FFb which I've always said is one of the best if not the best....just would like a tad more grip and a better sense of speed :)
A cool video on the making of there laser scanned tracks, I had a chance to visit the circuits of the Americas last May and can't wait for this release.....beautiful track!
Iracing has released a new beginners guide video as well as a new video contest, simply post a video to fb or any other social crap media and enter a chance at a 1000 iracing credits which should get 3 or 4 pieces of content :)

1000 iRacing credits would get you every car and track in the game because you would then qualify for the 30% discount. Get those videos in guys.
