    Welcome to this new Caterham Mod​

    Inspired by a good old 1995 Super Sprint i owned for several years, i wanted to share the joy it brought me on the roads.

    Declined here in 3 versions. They all handle the same.
    ♦ LHD
    ♦ RHD
    ♦ Clamshell (long wings more classic looking)
    More versions are already in development and will come later (a new Academy 2017, and then more powerful ones, 420R etc.)

    As this is my first mod, the bases were started with the Academy mod with Kamil authorization (the author of said Academy). We slowly replaced it with new data found online or on site, but there are still left!
    Big thank you @fkkamil !

    ♦♦ Templates ♦♦
    You can find PSD Templates here :
    http://benobro.org/RD/bo_caterham1700_template_skins.7z - 46mo
    Layers inside the PSD can be hidden or not to make LHD or RHD skins. I included the template for license plate and the free font.

    A great deal of fun to drive, and looks and sounds great. Is the gearbox damage modeled properly? A few times downshifting to 2nd, it felt like the car just bogged down like when you miss a gearshift and find neutral, but there was no gearbox damage evident.

    To be honest I was going to wait for a more final version, specially after reading about the V3 tires (weird choice) but since the V10 update I've decided to give it a go anyway.
    For being a first attempt at this, I'm amazed! every detail is so well polished, I know it's missing some features but what's already there is top notch, and if you continue this way it'll easily become one of the finest mods.

    Thanks for a great mod, top 3d model + weathering, and fun handling for a start. This choice of a road model with a less powerful engine is very welcome, even if the most desirable track variants are also planned.
    Cheers!

    Wow. From the detail in the tyres, creases in the tonneau cover, to the reflection off the chrome on the headlights. This cart is just Wow. Top notch a-class mod.

      sorry to hear about that, again use Support to post more details, i and we will be glad to try and help! I would start with a repair of the game in steam, also called "validate game's cache". Because nobody seem to have such issue!

    This thing is great, if it weren't for the sounds which I don't like a lot, this would truly be perfect, and if you really bring us the whole fleet of Caterhams, you officially are one of the AC Modding Gods.

    Absolutely flipping amazing and it's not even a v1.0!
    You're obviously extremely talented, and if this really is your 1st mod ever... Then I'm looking forward to your future updates and other releases.

    I would agree with those that have commented about the sounds not quite being up to the extremely high standard of the visuals... But I'm sure you'll nail that in a future update...

    Such a fun fun car and a great car for anyone looking to practice drifting.

    Congratulations mate Superb work! :)
