okay so this is how I always resolve the issue with the cars disappearing whenever there is a mod update

The problem

Fix - unsubscribe from workshop

Close the RF2 launcher

reopen RF2 Launcher

This should happen

If it doesn't close the launcher again and then reopen again

VEC mod still there - close launcher and reopen again

second time reopening - VEC mod now gone This part is key - there is no point resubscribing to the mod until the cars no longer appear in the launcher keep restarting the launcher till they are gone (if they don't disappear double check you have unsubscribed)

Yesterday when this happened to me, i just closed rF2 and when i opened rF2 again it downloaded some cars then all the cars were in the list.

So sometimes you just have to restart rF2, apparently...

Yes I had this happen and a simple restart fixed the issue as well. But the next step if that didn't work would have been to try exactly what you suggested Shawn.

In my case, I had to manually delete the VEC subfolders from each of the folders of the Endurance Pack cars. This was the only way to remove the defective VEC update from the car list of the rF2 launcher.
Thanks Shawn.
