Caterham Academy 2017 0.81

Official 2017 car with season skins

  1. Ben O'Bro
    00 academy motorsport championship.png
    2017 Specs

    Model
    almost finished, needs few tweaking and extra details in places
    Sound is from the Abarth (kunos) - result sounds good (thanks Leonardo for the tip)
    Physics are 90% the 1700ss at the moment, engine power is Academy-like, will be updated when 1.0
    RHD is almost done, but not included, only LHD at the moment

    >> As usual, expect the few mistakes here and there, so please use support the report them!
    ;)

    3D model, Textures >> @Ben O'Bro
    Research & brand new physics >> @JackCY

    ♦ To-do list ♦
    - RHD

    - Update physics to the actual Academy
    At the moment, it's very similar to the 1700, only about 10hp less
    - More official skins to come

    ♥♥ Merci ♥♥
    Daniel French for the references! (he is the car #30 ;))
    All the previous help for the 1700, this model comes directly as an improvement from it!
    Many thanks to the RD community :)

      yes sir, it will be done once the car is 1.0, to avoid making changes in both cars every time... it's simpler for us for now!
