    Some more bugs I Found:
    *For some reason, it doesn't matter how much oil you have, even on slight corners, the Hayabusa engine Starves of Oil;
    *Beetle front suspension is visible on the interior (don't know if it is worth fixing, but people will have to deal with it);

    This is based on the BIS, we could add something similar but less custom in 2.0, it would instead have the Hayabusa engine, close enough

    I have no idea why the I4 oilpan does this and the others not, could be the weight difference with the engines, I'll redo it. The suspension clipping I can't fix, it has always been a thing, I could add a cut floor variant in the tierods area so it makes more sense.

    I mean, specially with the rollcage, you really need to use the free camera to notice it. It doesn't bother me, and it wouldn't be a problem if that goes "unfixed" to the final version. I just said that this is a thing so people don't go crazy with details.

    I will fix it regardless because it started bothering me personally now lol.
    Fixed oil pan issue, it was basically caused by the Hayabusa engine being too heavy (I based it on the old Diesel engine Jbeam which I forgot that it was unfinished lol, it also could drive underwater but not anymore since I properly finished it), the excessive weight was stressing the beams that were used to attach the oil pan.
    Added a more powerful intake for drag version and buffed the drag radiator to survive it, it can reach 410 km/h now.
    Fixed wheelie bar being able to bend the whole engine mount bar.
    Added race coilovers for offroad suspension (naturally lower than offroad ones).
    Added starter motor slot. You can remove the starter and it won't start. There is also a beater starter that takes 10 second to start the engine, is super loud and has less torque.
    And there is one more option: a contraption called "Korbecki's wheel", which was a popular solution in the 70s to a faulty starter in the Maluch.
    asdefewfwfa.png
    This little piece is essentially a mounting point for a pull cord, attached to the alternator pulley, so you can start the car with a rope like a lawnmower lol. I calculated the torque for it based on its size and the average human max pulling strength, and I tried to give it a realistic rope start momentum effect as good as I can. The only thing I can't simulate here is several failed attempts before you finally get it running. But you can just spam the ignition button until you want it to succeed lol.

    Finished RHD dashboard
    Fixed some dashboard skins changing radio texture (was caused by some leftover cs files and unused textures that I missed when cleaning up)
    Fixed oil cooler clipping and improved Jbeam (not perfect but good enough)
    Changed front wheels on drag version to narrower ones so it doesn't flip when turning
    Added Bambino versions (produced in Italy, exported to Germany, featuring unique interior color combinations and later a catalytic converter)
    Fixed more mistakes in config descriptions
    Fixed a lot of ST configs having wrong badges, apparently all 650 had a center badge and then all 650E had a side one like FL
    Redone road assistance config after I saw the full size version of the photo it was seen on. It had a left mirror and rear mudflaps as it turns out.
    Waiting for AdamPLG to finish his model fixes, so I can edit the model (todo: fix shading on some trim pieces, add alternative floor for Beetle suspension, add some simple extras that are just different colored variants of some parts, maybe make some more parts removable)

    AdamPLG improved many parts in the model, they are much smoother now, especially the el hubcaps and the interior which also has door seals now

    I have put the correct authors for each part instead of just having my name in all of them with some exceptions like it was before. All authors credited in the main file, that's a lot of people lol, I hope I haven't missed anyone.

    Some finishing touches from me today, then Pędzel's part. Also, Felipe who is making the new Stig textures said that he will have them ready by the end of the day hopefully so I'll wait for him and re-add Stig to the mod after Pędzel finishes his stuff. He also wants to redo one of my skins but we are not sure if he will make it on time before mod release, he is always super busy.
    Todo list for me now: Add alternative floor, implement that and other new additions in configs, fix wrong size and position of some glass manufacturer logos, send to Pędzel and continue writing changelog until I get the Stig textures ready.

    Personal 4 RHD we already have. The FSM one was just a rebadge of FL meant for export (mainly to Italy) that had an RHD variant, everything else was identical, it was known as the "unified series". I could ask Pędzel to do the badges for it and add it.

    This one is definitely not stock. Bigger wheels, smoked turn signals for some reason, sport seats, and it's basically a modified FSM RHD version.

    There also seems to be a ton of those bis versions, but all with different parts
    Edit: interesting,
    The “bis” version has its own badge,

    There were various trims of the BIS depending on the country it was exported to. Some countries had all the parts on by default, Italian market had optional equipment available such as rear wiper, tilting front seats, openable rear windows and right mirror options instead of having proper trims (it also had better seatbelts than Polish version and a hazard lights button), and some countries had a higher trim called BIS Up which came with front headrests, rear seatbelts and a fancy paintjob. Similarly the Niki version appears to have either several trims or several factory accessory options (not sure which is the case), such as silver/steel hubcaps, some sort of openable roof, at least 3 factory paintjob options, painted bumpers and trim, who knows what else. It's so hard to find any info about the Niki, for some reason almost nobody talked about it on the Internet until the last few years.

    Ok then


    “Coming in at no 9 of Austrlia’s worst cars is the FSM Niki 650. based on the Fiat 126 the Niki was built under licence by Fabryka Samochodów Malolitrazowych (FSM) in Poland from 1973 to 2000 and exported to Australia between 1989 and 1992. Fitted with a 2 cyl 650 cc engine and drum breaks all round the 126 was probably an OK idea in 1970’s Europe, but a car that took almost a decade to get to its claimed top speed of near 100klm/hand couldn’t stop if it ever did get there was unheard of in Australia in 1989. One other thing that was unheard of was the price tag launched at $7990 it was the cheapest car in Australia at the time, but the old saying rings true here that you get what you pay for.“

    The Fabryka Samochodów Małolitrażowych (FSM) Polski Fiat 126 was not only a huge seller in República de Cuba, but for a while the little Polish Fiat was also Australia’s cheapest car; on sale locally between 1989 and 1992.

    Basically a rebodied and stretched Fiat 500, the 126 was styled by Sergio Sartorelli from Italian style masters Ghia and was powered by a two cylinder air cooled rear mounted engine – like half a Beetle – and pumped out a heady 17.7kw. Let’s be clear. Not 177kw. Seventeen point seven kw!

    Despite a good chunk of research, I couldn’t find any reason who thought that it would be a good idea to subject the Australian motoring public to a tiny, Polish built Fiat copy; a big night on the Krupnik? Who knows! Regardless of the reason, I sure am glad that they did. There is nothing I love more than absurdity in cars and the little Niki has it in spades.


    The 1989 Australian brochure celebrates that “the Niki is not overburdened with superfluous gadgetry”. An understatement, surely. I mean, they listed the heater as a feature! The Niki was blessed with “Porsche-like road holding” due to the rear mount engine… as long as the Porsche in question had 17kw, primitive suspension and four-wheel drum brakes. Considering that 1990 was the year that Porsche released the 911 Turbo 964 with a healthy 235kw, the FSM Niki was comprehensively nothing like a Porsche.

    What no one could deny about the Niki was that it was Australia’s cheapest car, by a long way. With a Nissan Pulsar Q pulling $17.5k (and even the Budget rent-a-car spec Pulsar GL at $14239 on the road), cars in 1989 were relatively expensive given the $27,284 average annual income. Enter the Niki at around $8k on the road.
    So, how does the Niki compare with the current title holder for ‘Cheapest Car in Australia’; Kia’s Picanto (about $14140 plus on-roads – or about $2k less than the FSM Niki given inflation). Firstly, the 1.25 litre engine delivers 62kw (nearly four times the power of the Pole). Secondly, while no mention is made of any sort of warranty in the FSM brochure, Kia is happy to back its little Picanto for 7 years and unlimited mileage. The Kia even has Apple CarPlay! While the Picanto scored a ‘relatively low’ four-star ANCAP rating, it still has all sorts of airbags and autonomous braking and in a minor crash, you’re unlikely to die, unlike in the Niki, which has the crash protection of a shoe box. ”Keep an eye on this post, i dont have time at the moment but ill update it on more info when i can

    You did though, you forgot that you did them? Lol
    sfsre.png

    I made the alternative floor with no clipping with Beetle suspension (except fot the sides but that's a small detail)
    asfwdfar.png

    Didn't know about that variant that is in the brochure, seems to be a pre-restyle, with different vent covers, silver wheels, chrome wipers and rear mudflaps. Any info when a restyle happened?
