    am I the only one that thinks the front of the Bastion is kinda generic & boring looking? It also bears a resemblance to the ETK S series mod released a few years back.

    I think it quite fits the American style. And i am excited to drive it.

    Well its clearly based on a Charger, which isn't exactly unique

    Charger was somewhat unique back when it debuted, and then everyone copied cues from its design when it took off. Now the Charger is getting killed.

    The back of the Bastion reminds me of a Chinese car called the Link&Co 03.... I wonder why?

    Good lord, that car looks like something out of a ricer's dream. Does bear some similarity to the Bastion though.

    The H-Series could also have Concealed Flashers and an Unmarked, blacked-out H35 Police variant, like that of the Roamer.
    The Moonhawk certainly is due for a remastering because the Donk config (which is great, btw), along with the new Bastion, shows that there's content helping it get rejuvenated!
    The Sunburst, I think, needs its Inline-4 engines changed to the Flat-4s (with the only exception being the base 1.8 Inline-4 with the optional CVT) because we already have Ibishu using Inline-4s.

    I feel like someone is going to make a rebranding mod for the Bastion. Probably wendover or gavril

    Gavril is a seprate company that likely competes and would have a completely seprate competitor in this segment (Bluebuck or GM) with Gavril engines

    Wendover is a model of the Soliad brand and is not a brand. Soliad is a division of Bruckell, and would thus be the most likely to recieve a rebrand (albeit with an "upmarket" spin). Considering Soliad's comparable IRL companies, it might not amke it to the 21st century.

    This is definitely doable, i don't think it would be enough to have a separate car but we could at least have a few configurations with Soliad badges, special grille, a more luxurious interior or chrome trims (just throwing some ideas)

    For some, unusual speculation, in what ways do you speculate we’ll riot if the bastion doesn’t have a flat plane?

    I won't even riot at all, don't think a flatplane fits this car, would be a nice addition tho

    rioting online because a car in a video game doesn't have exactly what you want sounds like a terrible idea

    A flat-plane crankshaft is useless for such a big and heavy car and is also too complicated/expensive for a $45-50k car.
    There's no need to reinvent the wheel here. The proven recipe of a big V8 with 2-valve OHV heads and a single camshaft is more than enough, with all the modern concessions of course (mainly a direct fuel injection system and a multi-speed Torque Converter automatic)! :cool:

    The update was rushed, none of this would have happened if they waited like afew weeks to fix it. I expect at least the game to be perfectly playable, but some of the bugs cause massive inconvenience. The whole reason the update was "split" was because they were pressured by the kids crying in this thread. The devs need to ignore the kids and release an update with a "certain" amount of polish (basically the same amount as the other updates, idm bugs as long as the game is still perfectly playable). Remember, ive never disliked an update since 2013, im well invested into the game, this is the first one that has annoyed me due to the devs releasing a completely unfinished update. With the "Alpha" thing, yes I know its in Alpha, but the point is it has been since 2013, dont get me wrong, this is a good thing, it allows awesome updates frequently, ie italy, all the remasters, utah, etks, FCV, etc etc but this one is not it, its rushed and lacking for the 6 months wait we have had.
    The Bastion is fantastic, I cannot wait for it, but the 2 main things in the update are the UI (which is very unfinished and has a map mode that literally isnt used for anything as of yet so its not a useful feature [yet]) and a car (which we havent gotten yet), the remasters are cool yeah, but the Pessima is rather similar to how it was.
    Im not hating to be clear, its constructive criticism of this update. No ones perfect and sometimes an update isnt good (that goes for anything including beam). Hopefully the next update is an improvement and I am optimistic it will be. Its a blemish sure, but this criticism can help it not happen again.

    The lightest spec LX Charger is only 40 pounds heavier than a GT350, and the Widebody Redeye Hellcat is like 10k USD more expensive.

    It wouldn't really fit the personality of the car, but as far as weight and price goes it's fair game.

    Yes it is a bolide... That livery is already in the game and you can apply it to the bolide right now

    have you used the map at all, like i'm serious, have you used it?
    the h-series remaster and the pessima remaster are both packed with stuff, i'm seriously convinced you haven't used anything new man
