    The vented hood used on the Group 4 and Strada models is too wide for the front fenders, resulting in z-fighting when going over bumps. I would recommend adding a dedicated hood for these models. Additionally, the rally fenders' jbeams interfere with the normal rear body, causing its sides (near the rear quarter windows) to bend inwards. This is a shame as the Strada is the best handling one and I wish these minor details were sorted

    IMO the production years for the Group 5 version should be changed. They are now stated as 1984 to 1988, but major competitions stopped in 1982 and were replaced by Group B. By 1984 only the Fuji Super Silhouette Series was run to rules similar to Group 5, and it would be its last year.

    Details to fix after ver. 0.24.1.1 dropped:

    1) The 350 Polizia variant is missing the Concealed Flashers from its Nosecone and Tailgate.
    2) The Group 5 Bolide doesn't have the Rain Gutters. I say this because it had them on the Remaster trailer.
    3) The mounting of the Front Number Plate on the Front Bumper and the GTT Front Bumper still has some problems.

    On the normal Front Bumper: in spite of the Number Plate being a part of the Front Bumper, it still spawns at its familiar Nosecone place as it should on an EU-Spec Bolide. The Front Number Plate also double-spawns below the car and into the ground, creating a weird visual effect.

    On the GTT Front Bumper: the same thing also happens to the GTT Front Bumper, but the difference here is that the GTT Nosecone and the GTT Front Bumper each have their own parts list containing the Number Plate - as shown on the second screenshot of the yellow ''Bolide 320 GTT Corse Targa - USDM'', where we see both Number Plates (EU and US, for a clearer view of the problem - check it very closely) covering each other.

    The separate Front Bumper integration of the Plate (with the Bumper having its own parts list) is only part of the GTT Selector and it has to be done to the normal Front Bumper too. And the integration of the front EU and US Plates themselves to both these bumpers still needs some work.

    Exactly, the 320 GTT configs have some Lamborghini Silhouette/Jalpa influences on them and the 350/390 GT ones have their share of Ferrari 308/328 GTB/GTS influences. The Group 4 cars look a bit like the Lancia 037 and the Group 5 car (my favorite of the new variants by a small margin, since all of them are amazing) is inspired by the Group 5 cars, the Ferrari F40 and the IMSA race cars!
    The Devs have done an amazing job once again! :cool:;)

    This, plus the z-fighting hood and jbeam interference at the back of the Strada, all needs to be fixed. The Strada is 100% my favorite variant but these little details trigger my OCD so hard

    The Bolide also needs a meaner name, how about the Venatore, as well as a 320 GTR Stradale

    The Bolide name is just fine. Best leave the Venatore name for a successor to the Bolide. ;)
    A Bolide 320 GTR Stradale would be nice though! :cool:

    "Venatore" is an obsolete term, it wouldn't really sound all that mean in Italian...

    If anything, I would opt for its latin equivalent, Venator...

    It literally means fast or fireball, it suits it very well.

    "Bolide" is a non-scientific astronomic term, it roughly translates as "bullet" and designates fast-burning, exploding meteors.

    By extension, it became a pretty common term to describe exceptionally fast and noisy vehicles.

    Bugatti literally called their new car the Bolide so its a pretty apt name for a fast car.

    Too easy for tires to clip the fender flares

    upload_2022-1-4_20-19-59.png

    Standard rear body conflicts with rally rear quarter panel jbeam, causing slight deformation

    upload_2022-1-4_20-21-22.png

    GTT hood is too wide for standard front fenders - looks fine when stationary but has z-fighting along the edges when in motion. Consider either adding a narrow GTT hood or a one-piece front cover including the hood and fenders

    upload_2022-1-4_20-24-5.png upload_2022-1-4_20-24-30.png

    Targa roof panel twitches when damaged

    Not shown: front quarter glass has strange shading.

    Fixing these little details would go a long way - I have reported these issues in the past but nobody seems to have noticed.

    One more wrong detail: the 350 Club Racer has the Stock Intake instead of the Race Intake.

    Also, the 3.5 and 3.9 V8s have Race Exhaust Manifolds as standard but there's no Race Exhaust to complement them and to end under the Tailcone. There's only the Rally Exhaust and you have to put the Rally Tailcone for it to work.

    I think the race exhaust manifolds are supposed to be called stock ones? Or maybe stock ones aren't showing because of a bug? Idk

    I don't think they must be renamed to stock manifolds because the Bolide's engines (and the Bolide in general) are supposed to be coming from a brand with rich racing palmares and the Stock Exhaust is only there for street legality reasons, which is perfectly fine with me.
    I just say that a Quad-pipe Race Exhaust with the tailpipes coming under the Standard Tailcone (like what the Bolide had before its remastering) would complement the Race Exhaust Manifolds better than if someone had the Bolide 350/390 GT, wanted to put the Rally Exhaust and should remove the Tailcone or replace it with the Rally one.
