ARCA Sim Racing X Patch News

The Sim Factory Development team currently working on ARCA Sim Racing have updated us with very important and exciting information in their very own forum section of the highly popular Race Department forum. The latest update says that the  Chevrolet Silverado Truck is moving quickly toward a final release version, all oval tracks are now in the sim with only road courses left to complete.

The development team also had some words to say about the physics and how they are moving to upgrade them to reflect the 2012 data and parameters.

Currently we have physics to dial in on four of the remaining ovals which will be done very soon. During final physics testing, final model enhancements and changes are also being made. At the same time we are moving to the rebuild of the ARCA physics, tires, engines and aero data to update them to 2012 specifications and parameters.
