Trading Paints Update Notes: March 7, 2023

Steve Luvender · March 7, 2023

Welcome to iRacing’s 2023 Season 2! We’ve made a few updates on Trading Paints to coincide with iRacing’s quarterly update.

Vehicle updates

  • Added support for iRacing’s new Renault Clio R.S. V.

  • Added support for iRacing’s new Ray FF1600.

  • Added support for iRacing’s new Late Model Stock. Short-track racers, rejoice!

  • Retired the old, beloved Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS that iRacing has replaced with the new Late Model Stock. Farewell, old friend.

When old iRacing vehicles are retired or refreshed with art updates, your personal paints under My Paints are removed under since they’re no longer usable. Showroom paints of retired vehicles still exist for the sake of painters’ portfolios, but they can no longer be raced.

All three new vehicles have support for AI-ready Collections for iRacing AI carsets.

Reminder: clean up those paint folders!

With a new build and new cars, it’s a good time to take a moment and clear out any temporary files that might have accumulated throughout your racing journeys.

To do this, in Windows, navigate to your Documents/iRacing folder and delete the contents of the “paint” directory. If you’ve got any spare temporary files left behind, they’ll be cleaned up.

Trading Paints Downloader makes an attempt to keep this folder neat and tidy for you, but sometimes files might remain in memory and aren’t deleted right away when you close Trading Paints or iRacing.

Happy painting!
