RFactor 2 V8 setup per KiwiSimRacing

New to RFactor:some useful tips in this post


For Rfactor league number 48 we will going back to the class of racing that has brought KSR some of its largest grids and some of its toughest racing.
Its Big, Its Loud, Its Fast and has V8 in the front of it, we are talking of course about the V8 Supercars!
We will be taking these beasts to some of Australia’s best tracks… From the streets of Adelaide to the tyre killer in WA, From the sunset in Sydney to the top of the Mountain. There will be something to challenge even the most experienced Sim racer.

FVR V8 Supercars v6.6
FVR V8 Supercars v6.93 Update

Copy these files to your rFactor2 Packages folder, and install all the v6.6 cars first, and then all the v6.93 updates. When selecting a car in offline mode, please make sure you select a vehicle labelled as v6.93 and not v6.6, as the handling characteristics are completely different.

Please note: if you have the FVR Supercars mod installed via Steam Workshop you must unsubscribe to it first before installing these packages.

If you are getting a Missing packages error trying to join the server, or you cannot find the v6.93 cars in your game, then try this fix (there seems to be an issue with Steam workshop mixing with non-workshop updates):
Delete all the FVR folders in

...\SteamLibrary\SteamApps\common\rFactor 2\Installed\Vehicles

Then reinstall the 6.6 and 6.93 packages.
