    No worries :)
    There are several skins, some of them are officials, some aren't, and are of my creation! Hard to find pictures of them all

    In general matter, there is a guide here for installation of mods : https://www.racedepartment.com/threads/mod-installing-tutorial-video.135781/

    The car mods go here : C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\assettocorsa\content\cars
    (that's the default installation of steam and assetto)

    And the skins go here : (they work for both rhd and lhd)
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\assettocorsa\content\cars\bo_caterham_academy_lhd\skins
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\assettocorsa\content\cars\bo_caterham_academy_rhd\skins

    Don't hesitate if you need more help :)

    This car is back in rotation over at simracingsystem.com as a daily race! I love it.
    One complaint however is that at race start, my framerate drops to about half of what it normally is. Just this car, and only when there are a lot of cars nearby. Is there something special about this car that would tank framerate only when in close proximity to others? It IS a mix of both LHD and RHD racing, I suppose... I'm guessing they don't share any assets given the file structure.

    hey thanks for your message
    LHD / RHD are complete different cars in the way Assetto handle things, even though 90% of the textures are the same. Same as the Countach with/without spoiler are two different car folders.

    The issue already noticed before with the academy is the number of objects, a little higher than what it should be!
    And said issue i can't fix much anymore since i lost the 3D files last year :(

    Extract the car and save the persistence files with 3dsimed,
    will generate a new .fbx and the sdk files and also textures,
    the mesh will be triangulated, which is fine if your not editing it again,
    but replacing mesh and settings and adding new features and such will work great,
    animations movement will be lost inside 3ds max, but again its fine if the cars work makes no difference. :)

    ripping my own car :D
    i started doing this for the 420, really wanting to finish it
    but then... realised it's way more work than i thought, like go over linking everything with the suspension, no way.
    I mean, way, but not anytime soon at least!
    This method to do the LOD C & D will work though

    If you like watching video tutorials, this one is a bit dated insofar as what races are being run (it's a year+ old).


    Bonus points is that you can use Content Manager's Live tab to also work with SRS.
