    2017 Specs

    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

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

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

    All the previous help for the 1700, this model comes directly as an improvement from it!

      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!
