    At least he's asking something constructive.

    @SKB to answer your question though, from what I've seen, even the race version currently has a solid axle, so possibly not, however, knowing how much blijo likes to experiment with suspension, I wouldn't be entirely surprised if he did make something.

    Solid axle in the rear, with leafs.
    Double wishbone with coils in the front.
    Thanks

    (it's from 1948)

    As for all the bullshit replies above:
    Ai Torror wanted to make that joke after I made some silly Flaming Nico Rosberg memes. No need to fry your brains about that.

    About the release:
    I will release it when I want it.
    Probably after I think it's ready and my testers agree with that.
    This will take time because yeah, I do have a life.

    About asking for a release:
    Please read the first post and try to ask other questions.

    I tend to reply on actual questions and post progress pictures :)

    Just coming to check on the progress and I will say, it looks awesome, keep the nice work up.
    I've been recently looking into making my own beamng mod, but i'm just a simple 3D modeller and the whole programming part of this gives me an immense headache so... I guess all i can do is say that, if in an unlikely case a 3D modeller is needed to finish this mod, i'd be glad to help as much as i can

    Working on something special:
    On a British car parts fair, I met someone who is the owner of a rather special hardtop:
    One made from plastic and metal:

    I told him about my project and asked him for pictures.
    I got them, and I'm currently trying to replicate it for the Fintray:

    screenshot_2019-11-22_13-47-03.png screenshot_2019-11-22_13-47-21.png
    I know that the proportions etc are still off, but I wanted to share this little piece of progress with you.

    This was a one-off, made because after the second world war, almost all convertible tops were broken/damaged and very expensive to repair. These tops are cheap to make and were a good alternative to fixing a softtop.
    Old Dutch article:

    If you don't have anything to contribute, please consider not posting at all.
    Thanks :)

    Will the clear top be retractible?

    Judging by the above newspaper article and design of it, I would say no.
    In the article, they lift it off.

    I remember when this was an April Fool's joke. Other than that, I'm looking forward to it!

    That glass top looks really cool and kinda silly to me, looks like the top half of a fish bowl.

    Do you know how rude it is to advertise an automation “mod” on a thread for a mod that someone has been kind enough to put time, effort, and even money in to create? I am just going to make a suggestion to you. Edit the message to deleted, and don’t pull something like that again. You have been here for a while now, you should know better.

    1.If you haven't realised, its an Automation mod. It doesn't crash properly.
    2.You shouldn't advertise automation mods on a thread someone actually put effort in.

    It’s sad that someone has to be told that something like that is unacceptable.
