Car Infos from Wikipedia :

The HPD ARX-03a, ARX-03b, and ARX-03c are Le Mans Prototypes race cars developed by Honda Performance Development in 2012. The 03a model utilizes a Honda V8 engine for use in the LMP1 category, while the 03b uses a turbocharged V6 engine for the LMP2 category. Three teams have already announced their use of the ARX-03 in the FIA World Endurance Championship and the American Le Mans Series, as well as at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Muscle Milk Pickett Racing have purchased an 03a for use in the American Le Mans Series, joined by two 03bs for Level 5 Motorsports. In the FIA World Endurance Championship, Strakka Racing and JRM Racing will campaign a single 03a each, joined by a single-car 03b entry by Starworks Motorsport in LMP2.

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 “HPD Arx03 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.

Sounds :

this car use the same sounds like the Acura HPD ARX-01.
i haven’t added this sounds into this package to save webspace.

2 Thoughts to “HPD ARX-03 v2.1”

  1. GRT_Matt

    would editing the car file for the skins from the old mod make them work on this one? I have the 2014/2015 Extreme Speed and 2013 Muscle Milk skins and I was wondering if changing all the settings in their Car Files would make them work on this mod.

    1. hello Matt,

      for sure you can add new or older team skins, but you always have to make sure that you assign unique slot numbers for those textures (body1, body2, cpit01, cpit02 and so on), i.e. a number that does not yet exist in the same vehicle’s team directory. Paste your textures into the appropriate team directory or create a new team folder. It is important that you also create a new .car file with the same slot number – the easiest way is to copy a CAR file from another team. Open the car file and enter the same number that you gave to the new textures in the “Number=” line.

      You can then customize chassis parts such as wings, lights, wheels, etc. using the genstring (see also the genstring help file in the vehicle folder).
