    I just found this..

    OOPS - REMOVED BY ME - Thaks for the heads up Ross.

    but is it legal ?

    from page 2 of the above link it looks as though this may cause problems if your running the F1 mod, its a limitation of the game that it can only accept a certain number of car models - its these conflicts when different mods use the same id's for some or all of their cars that can cause problems when you install them at the same time.

    Its also part of the reason why RD will only allow certain mods in its download section basically everything there (as I understand it) could be installed and work without conflicts.

    Arrested, sorry I laughed at that :D

    The mods by scca1981, a very good modder, usually all his stuff is legit so I think it's ok.

    ross was on about david link which he removed i think
    pretty shure these mazdas are legal and the guy who actually did the mod said something on a forum on some website where i got the link to the link for download and from the comments there i would assume they ok for download

    Lets just ask RD research team if the mod is illigal or not. (I hope there is RD research team for this type of matters)

    From the readme in the mod its a conversion from NFS Shift. This would be illegal (as in against the rules) for most forums.

    He said most wich means there have been some illigal and that mod might be one of them wich I hope not.

    I don't think your gonna get into trouble if you download and install this mod - sell 15,000 copies on ebay as you own work and you might have a bit of trouble, upload it to RD and admin might tell you off.

    As for installing it on your pc and having a go thats your choice and your decision, bear in mind though it may technically be breaking some copyright law or other, even if you do own NFS Shift, so then its a moral choice, given the extreme unlikelyhood (is that a real word?) of you actually getting in trouble for it.

    The real deal breaker for me is the car id's clashing thing - from what I have seen it shares at least one id with the MMG F1 mod and given the choice I'd rather have that installed and running well on my pc than this - although if it were 'legal' and would work (properly) alongside the F1 mod i'd probabaly be asking admin if we could have a Racing Club Event, because those screenies look great and the author has produced some fantastic work from what I have seen.

    Readme says it has SMS stuff in it. That means its illegal end of story.
