February update: Formula Hybrid 2018, RSS GT and rF2!

 In Formula Hybrid 2018, rss gt, rss gt pack, update

Hi all! Following on from the very popular Formula Hybrid 2017, Race Sim Studio is happy to announce the Formula Hybrid 2018. This is an entirely new vehicle design detailed with the advancements of the top-tier Formula cars in mind while being original to the Race Sim Studio team.

The 2018 car will feature three sound packages, an updated car model, revised physics and the new halo feature prominent in the 2018 Formula season. With the first race of the season just around the corner, it won’t be long until you get to enjoy the new car!





We are also working very hard in order to release as soon as possible the last GT cars of the pack; below you can check the current status of the cars. The first one to come out will be the Lanzo v12, which will be available in a few days!


RSS Lanzo v12 WIP


RSS Shadow v8 WIP


RSS Ferruccio 57 v12 WIP




For the first time ever, Race Sim Studio will be bringing its cars to rFactor 2! This is a long-awaited entry to one of sim racing’s favourite titles allowing for more ways to bring our work to the community. rFactor 2 is one of the most competent and rewarding sim experiences, so it was only natural for us to make this move. You can see some of our work-in-progress below.

    Do you plan on having a non halo version of the 2018 car, I would love to drive it but without the halo in my face. Looks really cool tho.

  • Dan

    Regarding rf2 will it use the most up to date CMP tyre model available?

  • Marco

    Wow fantastic work, you are exceptional the best, I can not wait for the next update ……. we heat up the tires … and Vaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

  • Patrick Craenmehr

    Thanks for this update. πŸ™‚ Can’t wait to try out the FH 2018 and 3 new GT cars. Great news that the cars also will be released on rF2, my favorite sim! Pictures only show the GT cars, but will all RSS cars currently released for AC become available on rF2?

  • Alexander Secher

    Just want to know if you have the formula hybrid pack, will you then get the 2018 car for free or what?

  • Victor

  • Francesco

    Keep up the great work guys, really outstanding !!!

  • Ryan

    Fuck the halo, it will look way better without it and wont block our view! We all hate it so please make it optional.

  • Dimitri

    I have a strong feeling that there is a large community of ppl like us waiting for mid to late 90’s GT1/GT2 material as well.
    Great job on the first part GT pack!
    Will now regularly check RSS for more GT material. Thank you RSS team!

  • Kevin Brown

    Fantastic news thank you, love you guy’s.

  • Davide

    Halo is the present and probably the future. If you don’t want it play with 2017 Formula Hybrid. That’s All Folks!
    I’m here to wait for the 2018 Formula Hybrid! Thanks for all your fantastic works!

    Please make a version without halo. could it be just a cosmetic mod?, so the weight of the car would still be as much as it would be with the halo on it. Also IRL the halo is not a problem because you can see through it via depth perception. But on simulators this is not the case, unless you have a VR headset (wich I dont :(). On a 2D screen it’s just a giant black bar right in your face.

    Nevertheless REALLY looking forward to it, Still driving the 2017 mod weekly if not daily.

    • Race Sim Studio

      Don’t worry, there will be a non-halo version too!

  • Marco Fernandes

    Do you have a release date ?? It would be cool if you release it before the season starts, you know to get to know the car before race begin.

    • Race Sim Studio

      We’ll try!

  • dreamer_al

    I am very interested in your proposed R factor 2 release. Any idea as to when we can expect it to be available?

    • Race Sim Studio

      In a few weeks, we are finishing the AC version right now.

  • Connor

    Any news on the 2018 car? Looking forward to doing excessive amounts of laps in this car when the season starts! πŸ™‚

    • Race Sim Studio

      Hi Connor,

      We’re doing our best to release it this weekend πŸ˜‰

  • Syed

    I’m so excited about the 2018 hybrid. I think I may have lapped the 2017 car a couple thousand times. Haha, you guys successfully make mods that are more enjoyable than the already good vanilla cars. Amazing work!

  • ledfoot

    I have been driving the Formula Hybrid 2018 car all day and love the improved sounds. It’s very cool to drive with the halo using VR to experience the challenges that the real drivers face with this new addition to the car. I find that the tires do not provide as much detail when slipping that the 2017 car does even though you are hearing the subtle sounds of tire scrubbing with the improved sounds of the 2018 car. I am using an OSW and have tried a number of adjustments to the force feedback to see if I can get the same feeling that I get with the 2017 car but if feels less detailed. I look forward to continued updates to this great F1 model.

    Excellent job guys.

    when do you plan to release the remaining 2 gt cars ? and are you going to put them into a separate car pack or in the same rss gt car pack.

    • Race Sim Studio

      They are coming very soon! And they will be put in the same RSS GT pack (so it will feature 6 cars once finished).

  • Phil

    Hello, regarding the announce to add the RSS GT mod to RF2 , do you have any date for the release?
    Your mod is amazingly immersive !!! Congratulation…

  • Micha

    I am so happy: GT1 at RF2….. yeeehhaa
