    Excellente à conduire comme sa grande soeur !

    Juste un petit problème esthétique, le cadre du pare-brise reflète la texture de la route, un peu comme le problème connu de la vitre du tableau de bord.

    Une fois qu'on l'a remarqué, on ne voie plus que ça, et ça gâche un petit peu le plaisir.

    Vivement la suite avec les autres modèles en tout cas, merci pour cette petite gemme.

    Hi Ben,
    I wish for a possibility to increase the free wheeling rpm a bit. If I had this car IRL it would be the first thing I'd do before taking it out on track. Don't know if the real engine can be set to about 3000 rpm though. It would make downshifts easier and make the engine a bit smoother :)
    Cheers,
    Pierre

    Is the suspension that stiff in real life also?
    There is zero body roll and nose diving on braking.

    I know... je sais :p
    Don't know what to do about it!
    Si j'enlève les reflets complètement ça devient matte et perd son matériaux.
    Encore là j'ai flouté le reflet, c'est bien mieux qu'avant, mais j'entends bien... je ferai d'autres tests, ça me plait moyen aussi
    merci du retour :)

    Hey Pierre :)
    It's a street car and as such not much freedom to set engine or gearbox settings! Not a race car for sure
    I don't know the real engine much to be honest, we just took from what we saw and read online!

    that was also my first impression, not sure how real that is. It's 100kg lighter than the SS, with less power, suspensions seems common to what caterham use on heavier model, we figured it would be stiffer. Now did we make it too stiff, that's a valid question!

    Look, I don't want to sound disrespectful but the car gives the impression that there is no suspension at the rear and that the front end will never understeer.
    The car just rotates like there is no mass and inertia.
    Of course don't take my feedback seriously as I have never driven this car IRL.

    As me doing the physics, I tried softening the suspension a bit, but failed. Do you know how to do it? If anyone knows it, PM me please

    The model itself is very good, no doubt. But it's way too stiff, you cant really predict what the car is going to do, it oversteers in almost every turn no matter if youre on or off throttle.

    I know that it is too stiff but the oversteering part is like this in the real car if you can believe sources like Top Gear or Autocar

    why did you change for the rx7 sound? it's so weird, isn't the abarth 595 a good match for it?

    i tried many!
    That 3 cylinders is not a common sound for sure
    Many cars are too rough, like the 595 and its exhaust noise.
    The e30 was too noisy/dirty
    supra too powerful sound
    the old abarth was actually not bad surprisingly, as well as the miata, so as few other cars, sadly the sound would not make it to the high revs.... whereas the rx7 did
    But if you find a kunos car that would match better, i'm all ears!

    I tried with 718 Boxster seemed to work through most of the rev range

    The problem with the sound is that you need much more windnoise and it must be a convertible to get that

    I don't think so. I thought it was a problem of me but if you say so too
