After the first release of the Formula E Energize pack in November 2017, featuring the 2018 formula E car including the HKT Hong Kong E-Prix track, Studio397 just released the Formula E Gen 2!
The Gen 2 has been completely redesigned and features more power and longevity, boasting double the energy storage capacity of the Gen 1 car meaning it can complete a whole race without having to change car mid-race. With 250kW of power, the Gen2 will accelerate from 0-100km/h in 2.8-seconds and go on to a top speed of 280km/h.
This release of the Formula E Gen2 is not just about the car itself. We have been hard at work adding in new physics features to enable the very latest of brake-by-wire technology. You might ask, what does this mean? Brake-by-wire in layman’s terms simply means that the entire braking circuit is handled ‘electronically’ based on the amount of pressure you put on the brake pedal (kind of like your home sim rig!). This electronic signal from the brake pedal is then split between the ‘electric motor’ and the ‘brake rotor’. In real life, the balance of this split is up to the race team engineer.
Lester Special Edition
As a special surprise, they have also released the Lester Special Edition track! The 3.2km track boasts 18 corners with some amazing sweeping curves and two tricky chicanes. The grungy industrial backdrop makes racing at Lester Special Edition all the more exhilarating. With it’s boundless high and medium speed overtaking opportunities everywhere, it’s a constant battle!
