Car Infos from Wikipedia :

The Acura ARX-01, later known as the HPD ARX-01 is a series of Le Mans Prototype built for sports car racing, specifically in the American Le Mans Series, Le Mans Series, and at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. It is the first purpose-built race car by the Acura division of Honda Motor Company, part of their multi-year program to eventually compete in endurance race. The car debuted in 2007 in the American Le mans Series before expanding to customers in Europe. Over the years various specifications of the ARX-01 chassis have been developed, each signified by a letter suffix. In 2010 Acura withdrew their name from the program and Honda Performance Development which developed the car for Acura continued the program into 2011.

change-log – reworked by SiGi :

Version 2.1 (February 2020) :

It took me a lot of time to revise this model as there exist overall 6 body styles with small differences and i had to rework them all single. I mainly reworked the LOD A Styles as the changes are not visible on lower LODs if the cars are further away.

here are my changes :

– reworked many texture settings
– renamed many material names and corrected some wrong named / assigned materials
– cutted, splitted and remerged some wrong body parts and textured them correctly, respectively new
– separated internal and external seats
– assigned correct body masks for all styles (i made this wrong in my first update)
– corrected non-transparent parts arround all rivets and side positions lights
– reworked / re-created powered on taillights and associated textures
– centered / corrected external steering wheel pole position
– reworked internal cockpit (cutted not visible parts, corrected not fully visible lettering and so on…)
– reworked mirrors and corrected glass position
– moved cockpit mirrors more in front for a better view on it
– corrected front wheel positions (height) for showroom

– added new, more realistic sounds from Enduracers LMP Mod
– added latest, updated engine files by GT-IMT
– added better shadow texture by GTR233
– reworked many CAS file entries
– improved / reduced “wobbling” discs / wheels
– and a lot more that I don’t remember…

Deinstall / Install Instructions :

i recommend always to DELETE FIRST any previous versions of this car / mod to prevent crashes / mismatches !

for that, navigate into your “GTR2GameDataTeamsGRID…” directory and delete the complete folder “Acura Arx01 Teams” – done.

to install, extract with WinRAR or else and drop the GameData folder into your GTR2 main-directory – allow to overwrite existing one with “YES ALL” – done.

No original GTR2 files will be overwritten.
