    well, I have an idea for the brand name, TUF? TUF for: TrackpadUser Fabrications, and yeah, Ik sounds kinda like TVR.

    then why not TPR?
    it just stands for "Track Pad User", like TVR stands for "TreVoR wilkinson."

    That's a good idea, sounds more British

    TPR sounds more french than british to me, very close to, say, other acronyms like TPV (Citroën, Très Petite Voiture) and PRV (V6 engine used in Peugeot, Renault, Volvo products and built by the Française de Mécanique joint-venture).

    The "Blackpool" name he came up with sounds way more appropriate, IMO.

    Yeah Blackpool does sound good for it, I mean TVR was based outta there from what I recall of that city but from what I feel its a good name for a car

    Or we could just stick with the Trackfab name. Because it's fine as-is.

    :D


    I'll try to put something out during my christmas vacation, at least fix the setups and do some interior tweaks. Right now I have an other project I'm prioritizing.

    This vehicle and the buggy are standalone mod, which shouldn't break on updates

    Hey, is there a way to disable cockpit audio muffling? I feel like it doesn't fit because it's an open-top car.

    There's no way that I know of, but I agree it would be a good thing to remove it.

    Fantastic mod! I have a couple of ideas for enrichening the variety: how about making a V8 version? There's a certain mod for the Pigeon which adds, among others, a 600cc Hobby V8 (I would put the link but I am not sure enough, it could be Taza's ''Pigeon Mod Pack'' but I could be wrong on that - anyone knowing in which mod this engine is, please let us know)!
    What matters is that the engine is fully modeled and has the dynamic muffling system of the game, with the removable mufflers! Also, it is small, light and leaves plenty of room in the engine bay of the Pigeon, so I think it could make a great version of the Superlite as well (and since the Pigeon is RWD, the engine can also fit in the Superlite)!

    Or, you could make something like the Levante V8, with its 2.4 litre high-revving V8! https://www.evo.co.uk/caterham/7/6641/caterham-levante

    You could also make a version with the 1.5 3-Cylinder gasoline engine of the ETK 853t (Synsol's mod, https://www.beamng.com/resources/etk-800-etkc-extension-pack.341/), either the stock one, with its 136hp, or the tuned one, with its 190hp (and, for an interesting twist, add the 8-speed Automatic option as well :p)! This engine sounds nice enough, like a slightly rougher 6-cylinder, so it could make a nice driver's car!

    Or you could make an even more basic version, with the vanilla 600cc 3-cylinder from the Pigeon, kinda like the Caterham Seven 160 (bare-bones, thin steelies and a 660cc turbocharged 3-cylinder from the Suzuki Cappuccino)!

    Also, if you're planning of making a classic predecessor, say a Lotus 7 or a Super Seven, like someone suggested in the review section of the Superlite, please include those nice long teardrop wings on top of the front wheels, with the option of independent coloring (as in the original), for making interesting color combos!

    These are my suggestions! Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year! :-D

    why a rename? why not keep it consistent with literally every other vehicle you've made

    Because maybe I don't want to have every single vehicle I made under the same brand?

    It's not like I released that many mods.
