    This was such a rush I haven't actually had anyone other than me test it works yet... so yeah, if someone can let me know it all works properly that'd be great :D

    Plus if anyone wants to change the colour just make a texture called "colour_detail_1" (I think!) and paste it in a new skin folder. "colour_detail_2" is just for the cutting deck atm.

    Here is list of incomplete stuff, let me know if anyone has any interest in me working through it or would you rather I just move into the FRS or Transit? :roflmao:

    Tyre textures
    Rim blurs
    Instrument cluster
    various dashboard buttons/lights etc
    headlights
    vinyl stickers/livery
    various mechanical bits (especially front brakes)
    A few asymmetrical bodywork bits
    LODs (although the base model is pretty light already)
    Some physics refinements subject to feedback

    :)

    First I want you to work further n this and secondly, I think Honda used Kart-slicks not street tyres for this

    Nah they used treaded tyres (certainly not street tyres, probably something along the lines of a semi-slick).

    I had a look up and they are from a racing quad.

    Yeah thats what i thought. Quite distinctive looking tyres, so I'd like to reproduce them ingame.

    Here are the first pics I have from last Wednesday evening, basically a proof of concept (checking the physics to see if it would work, the driver position etc). Just a couple of turbosmoothed boxes :)

    I replaced the tyres with the ones from the Tatuus. Without adjustments in the tyre sizes the car can do a wheelie from a standing start, with adjustments back to the original size the car grip rolls at every possibility.

    Wait what, you're saying the car wheelies/rolls with super grippy slicks from a racing car? What else do you expect? It weighs next to nothing, and the CoG is relative high?

    That's why it doesn't come with slicks. I gave it the tyres it has for a reason, the 3d model has nothing to do with that.

    Man I wasn't trying to insult you, I just said that the perhaps more realistic tyres are too grippy for this car. And I know that this is no 3d-model problem.

    And how could I knew that in the 5 days of making this truly awesome mod you went thru all tyre possibilities

    No worries, but I don't know where you're getting that the tyres on it atm are not realistic? If its the name (streets) then pay no attention, as its just a name. The tyres are different from any street tyre in AC.

    Ah, ok. That was what was worrying me. But in the top speed attempt of top gear the driver didn't look like he was just feeding the gas. Again, I'm no expert, I just noticed that.

    Cheers for the heads up. Really irritates me this...

    And yeah check the lat/long G, its still pretty grippy. Its just a bit of fun, and sliding is more fun than gripping so much it falls over :roflmao:

    Slight change of plan on the templates - I was planning on releasing them now but because there are still some changes to be made the model (mostly the small asymmetric stuff), there would be no point as the UV map would likely change and all skins would need redone. I'll get on it soon and hopefully have it sorted in a few days :)
