Mazda MX-5 Time Attack Turbo by Beavis Motorsport

This Asseto Corsa mod was developed based on the lap GPS data from the real world car.
Along with over 800kms of in game testing, A/C car data was created in comparison with real world lap GPS data to replicate the performance of the actual car. Weeks of 'amateur' 3D modelling, texture generation based on real photography, and geometry translation from the real vehicle to in game data. Total development exceeds 150 hours. In game lap times within ~1-2% of the real world.

One caveat, this is my first ever car created for a racing sim. I am not a professional game modder, 3D modeller, or software genius, so this mod is not perfect, but I hope you enjoy nonetheless.

Overall Great Fun! just a touch unrefined, but seriously impessive mod
Love this car, Once you get to grips with the tyre bursting power it handles way better than you think. Its good in the lower power setting but when you switch this bad-boy to hyper, its hold on to your skirts girls coz this Little Mazda MX5 is going to blow them off. Highly recommend downloading a few Hill Climb Maps to get the best out of this car. However I would also recommend using a manual shifter in Hyper Mode as Auto gears keeps messing up 3rd gear and dropping back to second if yo0u floor it.
Great feeling... apart from a minor tweak i had to make on the feedback feel, i can share with you to see if it feels better.

Needs polishing but its a base that i would looooove to see it fully finished.

Liking this car so much that i fully sent around my favorite track and made a video about it! https://youtu.be/9NgQ_OS4CYY

Great, please shoot me a PM with your suggestions :-)
Fun to drive car, and an excellent first car mod! Putting liveries on it is a bit of a mixed bag, sadly (probably 75% of the reason I download cars for AC)... a number of panels are reversed or have mirrored UVs (so you can't put logos or words on the front quarter panel), and the fastback and windscreen look very different in game than expected.

Oh, I am sorry it isn't perfect, I certainly am new to this, Can you just mirror your skin image to make it appear correct in game?
AWESOME, Well done.

Thank you :-)
Excellent steering feel, very much like the real thing altough I drive the ND model without a turbo in real life. As arthur 666 already pointed out, you can feel that there´s a miata inside.

Oh I'm sorry to hear that Sebastian, it is a shame you feel that it is only worth 1 star. :(
AS a NB owner i can appreciate this car more than anyone. Love it! Very fun to drive and it gives you "that" Miata feeling! The only issue is it's not 100% good looking, apart from this it's a masterpiece

Thank you, I am not the best at this texturing stuff so it does look a little bit off here and there..
no hand movment :( but good

I guess when I'm driving I never have the driver hands/wheel visible so it never bothered me.
Great job! Fun to drive. And saying this as someone who drives a Miata on track pretty often: It feels like a real car, and I can tell there's a Miata under there somewhere. :)
