    Out of nowhere? He teased a lot with this over the last months ;)

    Can't wait to try this tonight. Is it speedwise similar to the GT40 and XJ-13?

    Indeed, it's been a serious project since I got permission to use the model in February and I'd been doing physics privately for a year before that. :)

    Way faster than the GT and XJ.

    Was wondering, the car seems big or is the driver small? Looked at some pictures too and yes it isn't tiny but something's off with the model I think. Otherwise I like it, cheers :)

    Found a good eye reference. Doesn't seem that much wider than a Ford GT.

    Compared the two in game, they seem to have the same width. Dunno why it looks so big. Maybe it's the shape or height :)

    Thanks much for doing the work and releasing it! Very much a fitting tribute to Crossply's Lola update for the ancient ISI Howston (that should have been a Lola from the start).

    Super cool tks, only thing is the driver gear animation is very slow.

    Thats cause this ain't no flappy paddle transi. You need to take it nice and slow when shifting or she'll bite you real hard :D.

    We did shrink the driver model a little bit to squeeze it into the cockpit, so if anything our driver is a bit small. Think Takuma Sato more than Dan Gurney... :D

    Pretty sure it isn't faster, not at Silverstone 1967 anyway.

    I think it was the fastest car in the world in 1966

    It was, but the 917K is from 1970. In our experience it's a couple of seconds faster than the Lola at Silverstone '67, which is where we had our best reference times. John Surtees did a 1:28.8 officially and a 1:27.3 unofficially there in '66 and we've been seeing best times into the high 27s throughout testing, so I feel like we have the pace just about where it needs to be. If anything it could be a couple tenths quicker, but we'll see what a larger sample size yields in terms of times. :)

    Best time in the T70 was 1:27.6 and the 917K 1:25.0 or 1:25.5 IIRC... I imagine the T70 is good for 26.5 but I doubt much faster than that.

    Online this evening with varying wind and 97% grip the best on the server for the Lola was 1:28.1
