    Thanks mate!

    I love to take them for a spin at shorter tracks, the likes of STCC tracks and Zandvoort club..

    Have you got anymore planned ?
    maybe a old mini series ;) instead of BMW minis (Boooooo) lol theyre still fun just not quite the same as the original! Although i have GTL i prefer it on GTRE as it feels so much more real.

    I tried them at Cadwell Park so yes they scared me. There is some work to do, a few views are slightly to the side and others are missing I think :)
    But nice work otherwise

    Thankyou Prez for this great mod :worship:

    i drove them for the 1st time in last nights event and can honestly say i had a huge grin on my face the entire time :dance2:

    i used Rossi`s 08 car, is that skin from a real car?

    Thank you Prez for this mod! :highfive:

    As Nigel, I drove 'em for the first time last night in a RD Club event. What a blast they are!

    However, a few random thoughts:

    * It's nigh on impossible to dial out the understeer
    * FF is a bit weak compared to other cars
    * Tire temp readings and pressures are a bit weird
    * It would be nice to have a model that's inline with the original Escort, no rear wing and lesser HP
    * The hood camera doesn't "work"

    But, all in all, a very good mod! Well done!
    :laugh2:
    Kind regards,
    Karl

    Thanks guys. A more original Escort is found in the GTL MOD. Hood view is messed up but there is a hoodview but has different name.

    Understeer comes from to light car for that kind of power. I saw the replays from your race last night and Ben really looks sharp....

    Some more cool Escorts that inspired me :

    I dont know what makes it possible for customskins if it is a inifile or what. If anyone knows how to do it pm me.

    The Rossi skin is a fictional Whoops skin (Nogrip member)

    The only skin that is from a real car is my New Zealand freighters skin.

    have you checked your install?

    there is an ESC folder that needs to go in Gamedata/sounds/ESC
