Yep I can't wait for this one too!

I've been itching to make a modern open wheeler for some time, and after enjoying Andrea's F317 mod so much I knew this would be a perfect fit. I had always intended to make something like this, but with RSS you know it'll have amazing physics and custom SFX, and I'm very happy for it to be free!

Look at it as a thanks for supporting RSS so far, or if its your first, hopefully it serves as a good demo of what else is on offer!

I loosely started this quite some time ago, mocking up a spline model and moving onto a few parts (front wing etc), though I've only started working on this properly recently, and very happy with how its looking so far.

Will post some more detailed pics soon. I'm trying to work on this in my 'spare' time and as quickly as possible (though it wont be rushed, OCD wont let that happen!).

Wow, great looking car. Which car is this in reality? It looks similar to Dallara SF19, but not just quite :)
Would be good to have it too.
This is how will SF look like in 2019, very similar:

Yes very very exciting this project, we know with Gary onboard the project the quality will be exceptional as always goes without saying.
I love these types of cars specially this brand, the audio just sounds stunning so aggressive sounding to say its a smaller series car, but yet still almost 5 meters long, be nice to watch this one grow and then do all the liveries. :)

I guess it's the Dallara F3 2019, but it looks very very similar to the SF19. How do they differ spec-wise?

I think Super Formula is probaly closer in pace and DF to F2 rather than F3, they just share styling cues really.

First proper update I guess:

Ingame with just a simple texture right now, checked DRS and halo animations work






Overall made good progress so far, most of the major bodywork thereabouts bar a few smaller details - of course still plenty needing done for suspension/gearbox. Cool looking car though imo :)





Using the same steering wheel as the RSS2 - though I knocked 7k tris off it! :p

Probably final update till next weekend (have more pressing models to be working on during the week!) - lower rear wishbone pickup was a bit special compared to the others and needed its own little protrusion panel thing. Looks neat :)

Just needs some actual wishbones to hang off it, maybe that'll be next weekends job.

God yes this thing is already gorgeous, can't wait :geek:
Yes Gary made very light work on this since receiving a manual from NASA, very impressive work on the details and the chassis! looks beautiful indeed.

Just a quick visual test to see what it looks like from the drivers view, to see what needs more detail from close up etc. SFX and physics are 100% placeholder atm so dont pay much attention there, just a WIP look around the RSS3 in its earliest form :) (sorry for the DRS clicking and discord beeping lol)

cars with HALO look all the same onboard :(
Except this halo is different from all cars with a halo before - this one being Steel, its a few times heavier, a few times less expensive and a different construction (so brand new model from me).

So from that perspective its actually a differentiator from many other onboards - ie. it would "look all the same" even more without it :)

Anyway, as always there is the option to remove it for single screen visibility which is hindered unlike IRL.

Sorry, I'm a liar; I said I wouldn't work on this again this week, and I did by accident... I had the file open just to place a reminder for something I needed to change later and before I knew it I had these side vents done.

Yes those vents are looking awesome great work man, until you shown me I never realized there just the 1 vents. :)
