    Its faster than a lot of other cars in the game if you tune it right. It will be the best starter car for its cheap supercharged 3.8 V6. It is an amazing handling car/street car. If you can't appreciate older cars or an oddball build, you wouldn't get it.

    I am telling you I want it more than a Jargl Squit. Besides, whether or not we get the Soliad has no relation to whether or not we get anything else in particular (Especially the abandoned stuffs from 2014ish).The vehicle team lately has been keeping the content release rate rather high all things considered. Combine that with the fact that the Wendover is a very simple car compared to something like the Vivace, Bluebuck, and Piccobello and I just don't see it being that big of a deal in terms of opportunity cost.

    Also, this is the first chance we have for a transverse V8. And I do love getting new drivetrains.

    Are you sure that's not from a mod?

    The police version has been there for years, and the drift version was added last update.

    Well, the drift config was added in the previous update, and the police version has been around for a while.

    It's fun and relatively easy to drive because of how slow it is, yet the Sport model is nothing to scoff at. Adding on to that, it's fun to crash, and I'm sure for many of us it brings back memories of our grandmas' Centuries and Cutlass Cieras.

    I don't care what I sound like or who I'm stereotyped as by saying any of this.

    But what I actually want for odd vehicles is..

    A 1980s Japanese Van ~ Think the 80s Nissan top gear drove. Something tricky that flops on it's side as a hobby. Stuff that fails a moose test.

    And to go along with that theme a Ford Bronco
    II or similar 1980-1990s pre 2004 SUV that is too narrow and tall to be safe at all.

    Stuff that poses an extreme challenge when pushed to the limit in a very different way then the current fleet of vehicles.

    Also I disagree with the idea that the LeGran is useless. I enjoy having a variety of cars. Not every car is a "good" car. They fill a niche. Some of those niche cars... Are awful.

    I'd still like to see a Corvette style American 1990-2000s sport muscle car... Or more Japanese cars.

    But the new D-Series ect stuff might just be stuff I'd been hoping to see for a very long time.

    I have to agree with you fully there. The Legran is probably my favorite car in the game too (with the pigeon as a close second). I'm very much looking forward to the Wendover and wish there were more (for a lack of a better name) shitboxes in the game. I like how the LeGran has a kind of feel to it like an A-Body GM car in my opinion because it kind of brings back a type of nostalgia for me. I remember my grandparents having a 1996 A-Body Buick Century and a 1998 Chevy Lumina when I was younger, my dad had (and still has to this day) a 2002 Camaro, I currently drive a 2006 Grand Prix. So really, I like "crappy" American cars from between, but not limited to, 1983-2009 because those were the cars I grew up with. Those cars hold a special place in my heart for a nostalgic sake, and I'm glad I own one in real life too. I want the Wendover because for me personally, it would bring back good memories and make me happy. I personally can't connect with exotic supercars because in my opinion they're unrealistic and flashy. I know I look to have gone on a rant, so I'll just end with this: if I had a million dollars, I wouldn't spend it on expensive, fast, exotic cars. I would spend it on the humble cars that bring back good memories and personally make me happy, that's why I want the Wendover in the game, and like cars like the LeGran.

    -edit-

    this is exactly what I'm talking about.

    I am kind of the same on the exotics given a million $ thing. I do prefer old exotics pre 2004 and cars in general pre 2009 though.

    All the way back into the 1950s mostly back to the 1960s though.

    The most nostalgic cars for me from from the late 1980s or early 1990s personally. Japanese or American... European whatever. I don't really have a huge bias I just like cars, slow, faster? Whatever... I like cars. I like weird cars, sports cars, trucks, fast cars, horrible trash on wheels, heavy cars, light cars, big cars, small cars.

    Fwd, Rwd... Awd 4wd.. I'll still drive them... Just prefer the raw cars from pre 2009 before computers took the stage and cars became flashy appliances for everyone.

    I do prefer RWD cars with a bit of power though, but I'll drive a 126hp FWD Diesel from Europe for an hour in really dumb traffic and still have fun. I just like cars. So for me the more varied platforms and niches the better..

    And if that's what you like, I won't judge you and I respect that. What I'm saying is that I don't like people going around saying "cancel the wendover to make more supercars", just like you wouldn't want me saying "cancel the supercars to make more shitboxes". We both like our specific cars and that should be respected by everyone, but sadly, not everyone respects these nice things called opinions. Sure I would like to see more older American cars personally, but the game isn't just for me to play, it's for everyone who has $25 and a steam account. That brings me to the thing I like about beamng, the diversity of all the cars in the game. I like that the devs don't subject everyone to only one type of car, they're creative and come up with a whole bunch of different things. That's why I don't like when people say "cancel this car, cancel that car". Beamng needs diversity, and if that diversity is broken it wouldn't be a fun game anymore.

    no, the drift version has been there for time immemorial, I'm pretty sure it's existed since the 0.3 days.

    but back on topic, i'm interested to see how extensive the caves in sia are, and if there are multiple parts like the mines in utah?

    Nah, probably not. It is a "small island" after all. But those caves are pretty big tho, not the length but the width and the height.

    It appears Update speculation need a realignment.

    Going on my experience here, I feel we will have an update (0.19) during this month. Normally when they start announcing new maps they'll be released in about two weeks, but given the current situation I'm going to say within the month.

    Im going to guess that the update will be posted on a Friday. Even with the coronavirus going around, I think they’ll release it at the end of a week.

    0.17 was released 8 days after its map video and 0.15 was released 3 days after its. I can't imagine we are looking at anything longer than a 7 day wait.

    It was stated it won't release on a Friday by Nadeox1, next week seems very likely though according to the original quote if someone could find that further back in this thread.

    At this point I can't even remember how much stuff is going to be added/fixed in this update, it's gonna be huge!
    I gotta say Small Island looks very Mediterranean despite still being based on Texas.
