If you want a video review, Chris Haye made one.


Thanks to the people who beta tested it, which is essentially the same list of names as the above acknowledgements, but also LilSki.

Great car. :thumbsup:
One question though: why are the tires always looking like if you are riding in the mud (when using wet track mods)?
I'd understand them looking like this for a while when going off track (dirt, gravel etc...) but on a clean wet track ?

I think that's automatic if track grip drops under 80% or so, so it's just how the wet mod is, not something I can control. Might need to set it to fast/perfect grip level.

Thanks, it is indeed. :thumbsup:
Just finished testing some other open wheelers at Brands winter/wet and they all show the same mud pile up on the tires. :sneaky:

Thanks for this - a very welcome addition to AC. I can see me using this gorgeous little car a lot from now on. Thanks all - review left and donation made :thumbsup:

@Stereo there is however something maybe wrong going on with the tyres. I already noticed it in the pictures and Chris' video, and then I saw it first hand. Like some kind of weird shadowing going on while they roll. Plus, they tend to look a bit yellowy (always when rolling, standing still they look perfectly fine). I remember that the weird shadow bug on the tyres was affecting Kunos cars too, but they somehow fixed it in the end. Might be something to look into.

Just another thing, the mirrors bolting plate is too much reflective. A more matte look, given also that it faces inside the cockpit, would look better I believe.

As for the rest, awesome car! Not yet given a review, but that's because I want to drive it some more ;)

that's probably due to CM shader patch feature of visible tire load, you can clearly see that on one of the pictures on the main resource.

maybe it's due to that

Great historical mod, the only flaw the too much lying position of the pilot and roll bar too big in height for the remainder well done, to admit the rear of the car remarkable.
If you retouch these 2 particular is absolute perfection

Those tyres look a fair bit more convex IRL too - the ones on the model seem quite flat-faced.

This Mod is brilliant. Did a very fast shake down with it, love the feeling!

Question: For online cases, the server administrator can allow just one type of tire?

Excellent drive! Definitely one of the most realistic and natural feeling cars in AC.
