iRacing allows you to race using custom liveries with Trading Paints. iRacing users can sign up for a free Trading Paints account and browse through the hundreds of custom paint schemes for various cars in-game.
Paint schemes are created by the iRacing community using tools such as Photoshop or GIMP. Livery templates can be downloaded directly from iRacing within your account and then modified in a graphic editing software.
With the PRO version of Trading Paints, you can also use their platform to design your own paint schemes.
Below is a guide on how to start racing custom liveries within iRacing.
Before you can race custom paints, you'll need to have the following:
- A valid iRacing subscription and account
- A functional iRacing installation
- A Trading Paints account - sign up for one here
- The Trading Paints companion software (required to sync paints with other users so they can see your schemes)
Once you have an iRacing and Trading Paints account, you can visit the Trading Paints showroom to browse different paint schemes.
In this example, we will be installing the VRX Pinty's custom livery for the NASCAR Xfinity Camaro in iRacing.
VRX partnered with TSN and the NASCAR Pinty's Series to offer an iMotion simulator to the series winner. Learn more here
