    What I've got so far:
    - The car I thought looked liked a Lotus, checked DrivingItalia & someone said the Exige V6... yep looks like it Smile
    - The name? The pic' on the KS site's called "AC_teaser". AC, Auto... err... club (no idea)
    - The pic' of the track looks like one of those FVA semi cloud point data shots, so laser-scanning? Surprised
    - The gearbox, looks like a single-seater, so the new sim' won't forget its roots =)
    - The curb I dunno, I know they changed the curbs at Mugello in FVA for the last release, so maybe another suggestion of laser-scanning (ok I'm running out of ideas from one screenie so will go now) Very Happy

    If there's a laser-scanned Imola, I might never go out again!

    Maybe it would be better for the new sim to have a new name rather then calling it 'NetKar 2',
    just a thought, because 'NetKar' reminds of quality and professionalism to us, but always sounded a bit dull to normal people I guess (the name needs a bit of a stylish factor as well).
    (That's why people try more the 'crap' called like 'R-Factor', because the name sounds more stylish.)

    probably 'All cars available on earth Challenge' Wink or 'Advanced Cars Challenge' (hmm, not really.. such a name would also sound to 'dry' too, -joking-)

    Auto Challenge, Academy challenge? Isn't there a way to see what company has registered a domain recently?

    Seems to be a premium service, so if anyone wants to spend $19 then by all means (I can wait a week). This was the preview report though:
    kunos-simulazioni.com
    netkar-pro.com
    a***********.com
    kunos-bside.net (I think as that's where kunos posted the netBike demo originally)

    Surely I deserve a cookie for that? Very Happy

    Edit: another service has similar results, shows an additional a*********** name but with a two letter extension (.it?)

    Someone in drivingitalia referred to an other project in which kunos simulazioni took part, called EvotekSym 026.
    On their website is written Assetto Corsa Software...maybe can be that.
    http://f1sym.altervista.org/sym/features/

    and there is a under construction
    http://www.assettocorsa.it/


    mmmm scratch . Yours can be a good call, Marius!

    Its the correct number of letters, we might have a winner!

    Edit: assettocorsa.it & .net are registered by Kunos.

    Software "Assetto Corsa" - EVOTEK SYM wrote:Main features

    DirectX 11 graphics engine
    Multisample sound engine
    Advanced physics engine
    Advanced tyre math model
    Support for professional data analisys through AIM-SportLine software



    Tracks

    The tracks have been reproduced in order to guarantee not only a fine
    degree of technical training, but also to allow drivers to exploit any
    type of car to its maximum performance, be that in testing, or online.
    3D objects, surfaces and layout have been generated to re-create a truly
    immersive environment for racing. The Laserscan Technology guarantees
    the highest degree of fidelity respect the real counterparts.



    Vehicles

    The vehicles have been modelled using accurate telemetry data and
    engineering consultancy from their real-world counterparts. Their
    behaviour has been tested by professional racing drivers and race
    engineers to guarantee ultimate realism. The physics engine manages a
    considerable amount of data, such as tyre temperature, chassis torque,
    weight distribution, suspension geometry, wheelbase, track, braking
    system characteristics and so on, in order to generate one of the most
    appreciated precision experienced in a simulator.



    Tyres

    Assetto Corsa’s engine features dynamic tyre surfaces which change
    not only in behaviour but also in visual appearance as more and more
    track miles are added to their carcasses, when dirt build up occurs on
    the tyre. With the tyre’s visible appearance changing to reflect these
    changes, not only will the driver feel the differences but also will be
    able to see it, giving a whole new dimension to tyre management in
    simulated motorsports.

    I think I've read some of that stuff already. Very Happy
    For example the tires part, most of it is copied from the netkar-pro website!

    The physics in most cars and the tire model are already great in my opinion. Kunos just needs a new graphics engine in my opinion. Also some visual damage, pit stops, pit crew, pit sounds etc would be a nice addition as well. I think if Kunos wants to sell more copies he should also add AI.

    For a new sim it would be nice to see tire camber, toe or at least the specific ride-high of all cars on track of the other pilots cars at TV cam view or whatever else view, so
    that you might see some differences in setup of peoples cars live on track..., that feature I missed all the time in sims.

    'assetto corsa' generally stands for = s.th. like a car at racing setup, [-special racing edition/setting of sports cars (or even normal 'advanced' cars, at least of higher class cars)-]
    just some links I 'found' spontaneously:

    Yeah, I don't think going with an Italian name is the smartest move. I mean how are the guys SRT gonna pronounce it, how am I for that matter Very Happy Anyway speculation time (can't help myself sorry). Can we assume the 911cup server we saw a while ago will be one of the cars included? Also the track it was on, Nurburgring, does that maybe suggest it'll have some FVA content? Watching the Evotek videos, they show an F1 car @ the Nurburgring, with Pirelli tyres. Does that suggest licensed content?
