BMW Drift Mod STCC Final
This is just a modified BMW E46, with 550HP BMW GT2 based engine and clutch, trackday slick tires, and a new suspension. Also now it has 6 gears.
This is not a 4WD mod, but 2WD.

v4.0 Final - I will update this only if something really new appears, like new tyre physics. Or if some bug is find.
- Car is back to STCC class. I don't have any idea why, but I think some original file were modified by simbin and most people could not use the mod or could drive the car but with the original physics. So if you don't have STCC I think it won't work, actually I'm not sure. If you have the WTCC version of this mod, you can get the new .HDC, .TYR and .ENG files from this mod and use on the older version. Rename them according to the older ones, and then overwrite.
- Suspension was changed, now is more soft, even if you set bump and rebound to max. But all bump/rebound setting at 5 feel already good. 1 is too soft, 11 too hard.
- The default setup was changed and works great for me at the nürburgring, brno and most tracks. Some other tracks may need a different gear setup, but I wouldn't change the setup too much, try to keep tyre temperatures balanced only by adjusting pressure. You may decrease rear antiroll bar or rear springs if car slides too much, but it is possible to keep a good drift only with the throttle control. => Medium to high RPM and "smooth gas pedal" around the corner is the secret.
- Power from 484 to 550HP. Alows to use more the throttle to control the slide. Drifting at high rpms, almost at the red line is not good, if you need more wheel speed, you won't have any.
- Some files were renamed from the original names. People used to have the car working but without the new engine or tyres.
- Tranny sound was a real pain sometimes, because of the "use" of the same gear and RPM around most corners. So I turned it off. If you like it, just open the file BMW_320i.aud, search for this line:
// TRANNY-SAMPLE MIX
After it you will find another four lines with the double slash // just delete them at the beginning of each line. Save the file and the sound is will be back on the next time you run the game. If steam says there is a currupted file, just restart it, for some reason it is doing this now.
Please delete any other version of THIS mod.
Copy the GameData folder from this .rar to your race07 main directory, as you do with new mods, NOT to the custom skins folder.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\YOURNAME\race 07

If you wan't more smoke effect, there is a mod at nogrip, called "Real Effect - Dust Fire Gravel Smoke Splash". It is pretty good.
- The steering angle when you load the setup is 45º now, and to use this angle, it would be good set your steering wheel to 540º-720º. If you use a wheel like momo racing or G25, maybe you should also reduce the force feedback to something around 50% - 60%, and steering force to 100% - 110% to avoid wheel problems, because the electric motors can't handle 100% feedback even in normal racing, without overheating;
- Since I and almost nobody have a handbrake, the faint technique is a goop option, something like the Scandinavian Flick also known as Finnish flick, Manji Drifting, or Pendulum turn;
- Well it will not drift as easy as the 4wd drift mod for GTR2, I did this only for
personal use and trying to be the most realistic possible with my very limited knowledge, but since a lot of people like drifting, maybe someone likes this too. I will to make a mod someday with more realistic data, and some guys in the forums really helped me a lot, but that is still hard to mee, I have too much to learn; :)
- This is 100% different from any 4wd mod, it is 2wd, so you can't floor the throttle unless necessary too keep the drift;
- The default setup is the best I could find until now. If it slides too much, lower the rear anti roll bar. You can also can change it all, but some settings makes things really worst. If the car is going always to the grass, lower your approach speed;
- Left foot braking will make the front slide to outside the corner, step on the brakes if your car is too close to the inside curbs or it is going to spin;
- Changing from 2nd to 2rd or 3rd to 4th gear is totally possible if needed, but don't step on the gas too much after the gear change, try to increase speed smoothly;
- Too much camber on the rear will makes it hard to control the car;
- Increasing camber too much on the front will make the car spin around itself and not good for long corners;
- I use mostly the 2nd 3rd and 4th gears, 2 and 3 do the work for most corners, 4 for the big ones, sometimes I just go to fast as this car has 550HP, and if you do that the car will end up on the grass :/ A good approach speed is around 80 - 120 for most corners, less for the tiny corners, and 140+- for long corners. But I can't really decrease power, because then it is too hard to drift in 4th gear in long corners;
- Steering lock at 45 is a "standard" for drifting, small number like 15-18 are not enough;
- Good tracks for a test are Brno, Okayama, Curitiba, Nordschleife, Mackwerk...
Good drifting. :)
