    One of the worst kept secrets of PCars 2. Remember the 488 Challenge showing up in the list of classes on some preview build live stream? It was only a matter of time :)

    How does it differ from the GT3 car? Weight, Power, amount of downforce it can take?

    I love having classes for one-make racing series. We have a decent amount of one-make classes. The Clio Cup, Renault R.S. 01, Super Trofeo, Megane Trophy, GT5, and Ginetta Junior are nice. A 911 RS Cup Car would be nice though too.

    It feels very light and nimble, very close to the GT3.

    Downforce maxes out @2.00 front/10.00 rear.

    Update is 1.4GB

    Here's a quick (terrible) cell phone picture with it's stats.

    Time to update my power-to-weight ratios thread. I'll give it a bump if you want but I think it should only be a page or two back.

    So the Ferrari is at 4.40 while the RS01 and Super Trofeo sit at 4.58. Neither is close in power and even the lighter RS01 is 120HP down. I don't think there will be any Ferrari vs. Lamborghini two-class battles :(

    Actually the Lambo is only 60HP down and 155 pounds lighter. Is that a big enough weight loss to keep up in the turns or even things out in a drag race?

    So what happens if you didn't buy the Porsche pack? Do you still get the Ferrari without the too layouts?:confused:

    The Ferrari 488 Challenge is free for everybody, you don't need to have purchased any DLC to have it.

    Thank you for giving the 488 a few cheeseburgers, it's been king for too long.

    The console users are loyal fans as well; therefore, we should be given a chance of having it first hand as well.

    Nice, looking forward to some F488 cup races. Anyone else still remember F355 Challenge on Dreamcast?

    I cant wait for the F355 challenge to come. I dont mind doing a multiclass race which has the 488 and the F355. Some good old challenge racing.

    is anyone having a problem since this patch with thrustmaster t500rs wheel? MY wheel and pedal buttons all work but I have no steering. Tried calibration, thrustmaster control panel, verify integrity of files, no fix... The wheel works on everything else

    SMS has to go through Sony/MS release process which adds a delay from when the patch is ready to when it is deployed.

    Still not out, maybe they should have said "Consoles will get it in the coming weeks" not "imminently"

    It hasn't even been 3 business days since the PC release. I think you are dramatizing a bit.
