Ford Escort V8 Challenge 1.3
Created by: Prez and Günthar "KämpferAs" Rowe

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a reworked edition of the 2009 Evo Edition by Prez. Almost all changes
are made by Günthar Rowe who should have BIG credits for this release.

The Escorts are by no means to resemble the GTR2 release.

They are supposed to be fun raw and a challenge to drive.

wheelcolor=

[Ford Escort 74 351cu V8]

I just wanna say :Banane09::Banane09:
What a great mod. The FF is great and what a fun car to drive. I love the different tire compounds and how the car reacts on the downshift an brakes. Just perfect. I can't wait for a full grid race with these cars. :laugh2:

I read this in racing club thread:

"The sound is annoying though, it only comes out of 1 speaker in Cockpit View"

Never heard of this problem before. Anyone else having the same prob??

in cockpit view you will get an imbalance in the engine sound due to the drivers head being to the left hand side of the car, as per real life...

These cars are fun to race, the racing club event was great.
Got only one little problem, but i don't know it was a problem of the mod or the game.

I was on a big straight with a full health car, nothing wrong. But suddenly i got a message that i had a aero and suspension problem. I didn't hit anything and it just popped up. I just want to let you know. :)

But overall je build a hell of a mod. Thanks.

:woot:

Hmm ill have a look at this. Did you notice any difference in the performance of the car or was it just that the message came and nothing changed?...

Maybe we bought to cheap bults for the front splitter and the suspensions we got for free :whistle:
