  1. Ben O'Bro
    00 academy motorsport championship.png
    2017 Specs

    Model
    almost finished, needs few tweaking and extra details in places
    Sound is from the Abarth (kunos) - result sounds good (thanks Leonardo for the tip)
    Physics are 90% the 1700ss at the moment, engine power is Academy-like, will be updated when 1.0

    >> As usual, expect the few mistakes here and there, so please use support the report them!
    ;)

    ♦ To-do list ♦
    - Update physics to the actual Academy
    At the moment, it's very similar to the 1700, only about 10hp less

    ♥♥ Merci ♥♥
    Daniel French for the references! (he is the car #30 ;))
    All the previous help for the 1700, this model comes directly as an improvement from it!
    Many thanks to the RD community :)

    Kinda cute how the RH driver takes the steering wheel off and lets it hang out the right side of the car as he passes you! Do you need a screenshot? Don't know if that happens on LHD; can't see inside the car well enough.

    Beautifully polished mod, i understand the physics are work in progress and it's been a while since I drove a Caterham R300 on track and definitely recall it feeling nose heavy and pushy but with a relatively easy switch to oversteer with power.. But for my two pennies, perhaps not quite this nose heavy? Although the Academy is a lower power model, under steer did feel a tad terminal, had to be very patient getting back on the throttle..? I don't really feel worthy of any critique, so take with a pinch of salt please. Can't wait for the final version, it'll be blast to race!

    So many mods! Every time you guys release a car mod it is better than the last one. That's what I call "evolution" . This one is no different. So realistic and very, very fun to drive. THANK YOU!

    Still have the issue with the driver's arm poking through the door on the RHD version. I hope this can be fixed for version 1.0. Otherwise, a great mod and I'm looking forward to the finished product.

    WOW, just WOW, just a F..... WOW !!! <3
    Top quality my Lord and in all the different ways of physics, graphics, sounds, I'm speechless !
    It's not "Kunos quality", It's "RSS (Race Sim Studio) quality" and It makies sense for me !
    Such details, so perfectly well made, I looked just the dashboard details and... really speachless and I'm not a guy who spents enthusiasm all the time, so far ! ^^
    THANK YOU SO MUCH ! ;-)
