How to delete car content in the Assetto Corsa game

The following is how to delete car content in the Assetto Corsa game. With this tutorial you will be able to delete content or car files that have been installed in the AC (Assetto Corsa) game so that you have extra storage space, and can also eliminate errors in the game.

Rarely used car? Is there a better version? Is the Force Feedback not clear? Or do errors often occur when using the car? Please try deleting the car’s content or files from the game, it could be that your problem will disappear by deleting the files.

Before deleting, make sure you have a backup or backup file of the car you want to delete. Because if it has already been deleted, it cannot be restored unless you have a raw file or backup file to reinstall in the AC game.

This method is only for PC game users, not for players who use consoles such as PlayStation or XBOX.

Actually, we can also delete track files or circuits that have been installed in the Assetto Corsa game, but because in this tutorial we will use the Content Manager application and to delete track files we have to use the paid version, we will discuss this in a separate article. For now, let’s focus on how to delete files or car content first.

How to delete car content in the Assetto Corsa game

  1. Open the “Content Manager” application for Assetto Corsa. If you haven’t used Content Manager, please install this application first because it has many uses. This application is free. If you have installed CM (Content Manager), please continue to the next step.
  2. Open the CONTENT menu. The location is at the top right of the screen.
  3. Select CARS. The location is at the top left of the screen. If successful, a list of all cars that have been installed will appear.
  4. Find and select the car you want to delete. In this example I will delete a car file called APEX INDYCAR
  5. Click the “Delete” button. A popup will appear “Are you sure you want to move (car name) to the Recycle bin?”, please confirm by pressing the “Yes” button.

Any car files that have been deleted from Content Manager will remain stored in the computer’s “Recycle bin” page. So if you want to really clean and lighten your computer’s storage space, please also clean the Recycle bin on your computer.

The reason why I deleted car content or files from the game

  • There’s better content. Especially for the Apex Indycar car content above that I deleted, the main reason I deleted it was because I already had better car content, namely VRC Formula North America 2021 (paid).
  • Rarely used. Even though the Apex version is actually free and can still be used, I’m sure this content will rarely be used in the future so it’s better to just delete it because it will only fill up the list.
  • There is a newer version. The Indycar version of the Apex still refers to the 2020 version, while the VRC version refers to the 2021 Indycar.
  • Increase free storage space on PC. The size of the content files from Apex Indycar is also quite large (1.5 Gb in total) so it’s not bad that if I delete them it can increase the free storage space on the PC.
  • Files often have errors. Another reason that might also be taken into consideration is, sometimes there are car contents that are really bad or often have errors. So it’s better to just delete it.
  • Force Feedback is strange and inappropriate. There is also car content where the force feedback is inappropriate or strange when driving, rather than forcing it, it’s better to just delete it rather than make it annoying when playing.
  • Eliminates errors in the game. Sometimes a corrupt file can cause errors in the game. So if you experience an error while playing the Assetto Corsa game, try deleting the content you just installed, that could be the trigger.

And there are many other reasons that “require” me (or you) to delete files or car content from the Assetto Corsa game. Actually, apart from car content, there is also track or circuit content which can cause the reasons above, but it seems like it needs a separate discussion.

Hopefully this article on how to delete car content in the Assetto Corsa game is useful. If you have questions, please save them in the comments column as usual. Remain a wise user! Good luck!
