  2. Awesome mod, top quality all around!

    Couple of things i noticed:

    "VLN" and "24hr" tags are a bit unnecessary, dont think any other car has those tags.
    the awd version has "rwd" tag

    suspension damage doesnt seem to be implemented? i had some big crashes (awd version) and didnt get any. Think its fairly easy to add. Hope to see the dirt and visual damage one day too, can make screenshots/videos a lot more interesting!

    cheers to all involved, great project, a must have mod for sure

    edit: oh and if the car is competitive with any of the official cars, you can copy the same #tag from that car to yours so that they will automatically appear as a group when making a quick race

    edit 2: the 3310 and map are nice details id have never spotted on monitor!

  3. I was wondering if it's possible to edit the Limit light to have some depth to it instead of the flat red circle that pops up? It's a small thing but it really jumps out. Thanks for the work :).
  4. I haven't found a way to do this yet
  5. No biggie, thanks for researching it!
