    but equally, don't get too excited. They're still Howston G4 meshes.
    But they're better. Along the lines of what i did to the Cobra meshes for the '54 mod.
    I don't think anyone will be disappointed if they're not expecting scratch-made replica bodies :)

    a generally similar screenshot

    and i just discovered this fab video from the British round
    "Made to a budget of about U$5,000 using BOAC staff, one drove a Ferrari 275LM in the race, and also drove the camera car agreed to be loaned free by Bruce McLaren and an AC Cobra loaned for a day by AC Cars Thames Ditton."

    it appears to be posted by the guy in the video

    here are a couple of the models completed to date and coming up in the upcoming mod update.
    they're all still using the common HG4 chassis/cockpit dimensions, but some of the internal items like radiator intakes, radiators, and fluid tanks have been downsized to accommodate the narrower and/or shorter bodies. Models have different wheelbases and track widths. There are smaller and narrower ones than the ones you see here below :)

    1st video: He said there are 3 key numbers which resume the new motorisation: 3L / 300 cv / 300 Km/h
    2nd video: Renault Alpine A210: 1300cc / 130 cv / more than 260 km/h. Less than 15L/ 100Km for fuel consumption.
    8 or 9 pitstops needed during 24h Le Mans
    320Km/h in Mulsanne at the end of the day
    1st in energy indice of performance

    Thats some really efficient consumption of fuel ! I'll assume that it must be because of low drag, cars being small, but also probably not using all of the rpm most of the time.

    Speeds also are surprising, higher than it is now in the mod, I think that there is possibly too much aerodynamic drag in the mod.

    These little bits are all very useful.

    Not sure what was meant about "320Km/h in Mulsanne at the end of the day", perhaps just spoke about fastest cars ?

    Those new mesh updates look great. Thank you for all the work you do.

    I drive these and the 55 cars quite often at the moment. Will there be an upgrade entry for H-Shifters? Right now the shifting isn't very delightful, because of the long shift delays, I guess!?

    I like the way it is implemented within the f1 eve cars and I believe it is the same with the stock G4/cobra aswell.

    I don't know, it said 320km/h top speed in 2nd video with 130cv.
    300km/h with 300cv in the 1st.

    => One of the two vid is wrong...
