TIPS AND TRICKS
Don’t pace. Seriously, this would possibly look like it’s counter intuitive for a racing recreation, however Project CARS isn’t about how briskly you’ll be able to go, it’s about how nicely you’ll be able to deal with your chosen automotive. So, don’t simply blindly press the pedal to the metal- be taught to break, speed up, shift gears, and use the automotive as an extension of your self to navigate the monitor you might be on.
Get accustomed to all of the completely different sorts of automobiles. Rallycross, prototypes, GT, touring, supercar, open wheelsand basic race cars- there are a great deal of completely different sorts of automobiles within the recreation, and every drives and handles differently- be taught the fundamentals of every class, and be taught the ins and outs of the automotive you will have chosen for your self.
Practice. You are most likely conscious of this by now, given all of the earlier suggestions, however this recreation requires lots of endurance and lots of practice- however the payoff is price it, particularly in case you are a automotive fanatic.

If you might be new, experiment with the Race Engineer. Project CARS 2 is a tricky recreation, it is aware of it, and it is going to make precisely zero concessions for you- besides this one. The Race Engineer will ask you about your issues as you race, and will tune your automotive to allow you to deal with these points routinely. It’s a reasonably helpful instrument, and not only for newcomers, both, to be trustworthy.
Address every race otherwise. There are a number of completely different sorts of races in Project CARS 2, every with lots of variables going on- climate, monitor situations, elevation, and extra. You should method every race with lots of care- customise your automotive for that particular race, the whole lot from suspension, floor clearance, tyre alternative, and extra, and additionally alter your racing fashion per that particular monitor’s necessities.
HOW TO TUNE YOUR CAR, USE THE RACE ENGINEER AND SET UP THE GEAR RATIOS
Race Engineer: I stated this earlier than, I’ll say this again- the Race Engineer is an excellent useful instrument, that principally does the job of tuning for you. If you’re looking to play the sport extra ‘casually’, or in case you are having bother with it, use the Race Engineer- you should utilize this to a minimum of be sure you can get the grasp of the second to second gameplay, earlier than you will have to delve into the tuning ‘metagame’
Tyres: This is arguably a very powerful tuning you’ll do- the tyres you might be racing with can single handedly decide your efficiency in a race, so that you want to ensure you choose proper. As said within the earlier part, know the track- choose slick, all-terrain, ice, or moist tyres to guarantee you will have the proper for the monitor situations. As a common rule, in case you are going to be racing on all paved roads, slicks are the most effective sorts of tyres- moist for moist tracks and ice for icy terrain. If it is going to be dry, however the monitor goes off highway, then all terrain is your greatest wager. Finally, there are two variants for every tyre- comfortable (higher dealing with, however degrade much more simply) and arduous (last more, however worse dealing with). Weigh the professionals and cons, and go together with the sort that fits your play fashion better- or you might even change between the variants throughout the identical race, must you be so inclined.
Gear Ratios: This determines when your automotive switches to the subsequent gear. Every automotive has them set by default, however the default setting isn’t at all times the most effective for the monitor you could be racing on. As at all times, you will want to tune for every race. It is suggested you first familiarize your self with the monitor (perhaps do a observe run), and see if the monitor has longer stretches of straight driving, or extra corners and turns- if the previous, you need longer gear ratios. These offer you slower acceleration, however greater high speeds. If it’s the latter, you will have shorter ratios. Your high pace is capped, however you’ll be able to speed up far faster now, and on a topsy turvy monitor with lots of braking, that’s truly precisely what you will want. You may also be boring, and simply at all times go together with balanced ratios.
Rallycross Tuning: For rallycross occasions, there are additional stuff you need to hold in mind- low facilities of gravity (ergo low floor clearance) with the rear suspension greater than the entrance one (higher braking), and dampers set to stiff. Shorter ratios for these sorts of occasions (as a result of the tracks flip a lot) as well- however these are simply tips. Experiment with the tuning your self for a bit, and see what works greatest for you!
CUSTOMIZATION: PAINT JOBS AND LIVERIES
Customization in Project CARS 2 is not only about doing good, however- it’s also about wanting good. You can customise how your automotive seems through paint jobs and liveries, and the sheer quantity of choices accessible to you is staggering, making certain that your automotive is exclusive and to your liking. The video showcase beneath will stroll you thru all of the customization variants on provide within the game- see if there’s something that catches your eye!
FASTEST CARS IN THE GAME
There are a lot of automobiles in Project CARS 2 (in case the identify didn’t tip you off). But there are just a few whose names at all times come out on high as being the quickest ones within the recreation:
- McLaren P1 GTR
- Formula X
The movies beneath present us all of those automobiles in action- see which one you suppose is the quickest, and the most effective (and bear in mind, as I identified within the Tips and Tricks part, these two would not have to be the identical factor on this recreation) for you. And, er, remember- MPH and KMPH are very completely different items. Don’t get too excited simply since you noticed an even bigger quantity. Most of you most likely already know this, however it’s a straightforward sufficient, if silly, mistake to make, so be careful.
ALL TRACKS AND CARS
Project CARS 2 follows on from its predecessor, in doing one thing fascinating, and having the whole lot unlocked upfront- the problem just isn’t in unlocking this content material, it’s in mastering it. But meaning there’s a dizzying quantity of stuff that confronts you whenever you first boot up the sport.
That’s the place these video guides come in- these movies showcase each single monitor, and each single automotive (together with the Japanese automobiles DLC) within the recreation. Maybe use these movies to get some degree of familiarity with all of the content material earlier than you bounce headfirst into it.
