Zakspeed Escort MK2 GR.5 DRM Download (Release v0.2)


Hi there!

Well, it’s time for the first release. I didn’t finished it yet but I need a break, so I decided to release a v0.2 version and see what you guys think. Or we can wait one more year 😛 Keep in mind it’s not finished yet mainly the physics part (and we neither have solid axle in AC) and still missing minor model details.

And at last but not least:

A BIG thanks to JoshkerrOrbit4L and  WilmerChavez for the AMAZING skins and beta test! (I only made the castrol B/W 😛 btw)

Thank to e-MotorSports and Grantelb4rt too for the help finding some info 😉

And another especial thanks to people who donated something, hopefully you guys can help me to buy a decent new video card 😀

Update 09/nov:

Well, the things reached a insane scale yesterday, the page views jumped from 500~600 daily views to 3.871. Impressive, at least people want to try this thing. But I’ve seen lots of love and hate around and I think I need to explain some things here.

This is my first experience in the modding community, everything you see here is result of lots of hours of trying and error. Months, actually. There’s no “make awesome physics in 5 easy steps” tutorial, I’m just an 3d artist with some experience with games, everything beyond this is a plus and in case you guys don’t noticed, despite from the help of named people above, this is a one person project and I’m neither physics guru or sound engineer, that means this two positions are available. Just complaining over the internet won’t help this project in any way.

I’m doing my best here, but I can’t handle everything alone with extreme quality. Not in less than a year. 

Just for the record, I’m not mad at all, I know there’s flaws here more than anyone.

Know issues/ TODO:

– Transparency sorting (glass)
– Not entirely happy with the damage (not final)
– Proper and unique interior model for turbo version (the N/A interior is ok, just need some more polishment)
– Interior materials need some polishment
– No lod models
– Lotus 98t placeholder sounds
– The turbo version may be a bit overpowered ATM
– I’ll update this list when I remember the rest of the things

      To solve this problem you need to open the folder structure , go to SYSTEM , then the CFG , open the file ” assetto_corsa.ini ” and make a change : in line 3 where it says ” WARNINGS_AS_ERRORS = 1″ you have to put “0”

  6. Patrice Rodriguez says:

    Great for a v0.2 !! Thx a lot.
    It needs his big sister, the Zakspeed DRM Turbo !!!


  7. dutchdevil79 says:

    The gearings on the turbo version seem a bit short. Reaching rev limiter all the time on straights.

    For the rest great car to drive. Keep up the good work.


    • Sovers says:

      I think it’s not the problem of the gears being short, cuz the car is matching the 270km/h of top speed, the problem is that it’s reaching the top speed too fast. Maybe it’s a bit overpowered ATM, dunno. I’ll look at this later.


  8. Yodogawa says:

    I love Escort… They will do other old cars?


  9. Grantelb4rt says:

    The car is really nice to drive 😀
    The Turbocharged escort is pretty tricky in corners, because of the huge torque that hits the wheels all of a sudden, but still very fun ^^
    I did a quick lap with the non Turbo Escort on Bathurst, if you like you can have a look at it 🙂


  10. kingdomblues says:

    very good work Sovers, one of the best car in assetto


  11. MR_Boo says:

    You’re doing good work Sovers. The Turbo is fast and loads of fun to drive, especially when the turbo spools up and caches you out mid-corner. Thanks 🙂

    Hi Sovers,

    superb job for a V0.2……..It shows a big potencial…..Once the default setup is adjusted, the car gives some real good feedback .
    The engine sound from the T98 fit great with the car , maybe in the furure realese it will sound more like a 4 cylinder with WEBER caburator 😉
    One more time , congratulation for this little beast and thank you to share your passion.
    A small donation as been send to support all your work ….



  13. nivadepi says:

    woohooo, what a blast to drive, the turbo version is a beast !!! it’ll bite you like no other. I like it, because this thing is teaching me how to throttle control 😉


  14. Many many many thanks my friend!!! It’s amazing! Is there any chance and for a MK1? Great job!!!


  15. fbiehne says:

    This car is already so much fun in this early stage! Thanks!


  16. acsgt2015 says:

    Superb as it is since the begining……


  17. acsgt2015 says:

    Just a question, why it damage the engine when you pass over 60% the boost 😉
