    That looks really good to my eye!

    It is worth to check tire pressures, off roader which I made works well with 8psi, tires are kinda stiff I guess.

    Springs end up all wonky if you put decent lift, though:

    Aw man! I just googled it and my nearest one is 12.6 miles away!
    When it's out, I'm gonna have to take a bus there... :rolleyes:
    Jokes aside, it's a really interesting design you've got going on there, like a new car made old.
    Looks like a 7th Gen Burnside Special, IMO!

    Looks good, like an Ibishu Hopper Mk2.

    I've got a couple of nice old school coupes cooking up. The yellow one is underpowered for my taste atm

    Since I have no fast sportscars on the Räval page, I tried to make one. But as always, it did not turn out the way I thought:D Namely, it is slower than was originally intended, having a 2 liter NA 6 cylinder boxer engine in 1975 doesnt really give ultimate performance specs:D Handling tune took 3 days:D Having the engine in the rear does really have an effect on the handling:D Also, making it look nothing like a Porsche seems almost impossible:D For once I actually left some extra displacement into the engine, so I guess I could make a faster version of it later:D

    All I need now is to way to save this deformation, add some big air horns to roof, space bubble and it would be nearly perfect:

    I would, but I haven't got the time to install BeamNG.drive yet, so I can't... I'll hopefully be able to tomorrow or the day after tomorrow, though.

    @Marcus_gt500 and everyone, here's the fwd base model. Tried to make it semi-period correct, but with my own twist on it.

    Just drove it, here are my opinions:

    Good points:
    Engine note is pleasurable and with good volume
    Great stability
    Safety is good at least on small crashes
    Design is almost on point. Could use a litle more simetry on the rear end.
    Good torque

    Points to improve:
    Gear spacing is short. Wheelspin is anoying
    Too much understeer. Softer front sway bar recomended
    Tires could grab better at dirt. Feels like a asphalt only tire. Also too low side profile.
    Put the exhaust a tad upper, so it's upper portion is hidden underneath the car
    The models of side mirrors used usually are atached to the door itself, they are kind of weird on the actual position

    Overall, a pleasurable car to drive

    The tests patch was the rallycross track at the industrial area

    Thanks for the testing, that body is rather particular when it comes to mirror placement,I'll do some revisions to both versions tonight. That's the base model I provided so I'll cut back on the power of the sports model.

    In 1994, Shimutshibu (The same manufacturer that we worked for on the Enula Mocca project) desired to have a revival at the light, FR, 2 seater sports car market. After a year of hard work, the Apex was released. A kei car, respecting all the regulations, and still delivering old school driving emotion through a turbo 660cc engine, coupled with a manual gearbox, a rare sight on the kei marked, and RWD. Great suspension dynamics, and a open top as standart, with a long hoof coupe optional. There was also a Klassik version, that had the same powertrain, but with looks straight from the 60’s. This version was loved by woman and older people, who would like to have a classic car, without the trouble of maintaining a classic car. It’s still a very sought after used car, and frequently seen on track days.

    Apex Klassik convertible

    This is a Apex sports coupe witch was prepared for track days, receiving a V8 made from 2 superbike engines. A wild beast on the track!

    Here’s a more sane Apex Klassik tuned again for track days, with a inline 4 swap

    1986 Admiral Seventh Avenue 1.8 N/A and enough chrome to feed a 3rd world country. (needs more chrome bits) Also a Martin Cross edition will have a turbo.

    In 1979, Jefferson Motors was going through stuff. Oil was getting pricey again, and land yachts were going out of style. What they needed was a competent, inoffensive car that would start bringing cash back into their rapidly emptying wallets. Enter the Jefferson Patriot, a generic econobox in the shape of a classic Detroit sedan. This Grand Patriot (cheesiest name could think of) has a 2.5L I4 with a four speed auto.

    This is why you don't put 2012 super car V16 into old truck:


    Ah well, I hoped to have one car that does not need days of work until it works, but it seems I'm bit too extreme for that to work. Need to put some braces there, might need to change tires a bit (probably ends up swapping D15 jbeam and weeks of pointless work).

    Hypnotising motion :p
