    Sorry, I'm not sure if I missed this thread or just never commented in it. Since it is popping up, I'm not sure if requests are still being taken. I know you probably have a big list, but hopefully I can sway those options :)

    I come from the midset that conversions are ok if done well. So if it is done for another game, I would typically try to have something that hasn't been done previously made than something that has been done 10 times over.

    I've also been starting to get interested into club racing. I know everybody wants to race big fast powerful cars. But sometimes you get great racing with things that aren't quite as fast. They are more approachable from racers of all classes. Plus, it can be a benefit for people who own the cars to get practice.

    So with that, my thoughts:

    Elan DP02:
    It started out as the IMSA Prototype Lites car. Now they are very common in the SCCA P1 class. It was something I didn't appreciate at the time, but seems to be a very advanced car. Looking at race car classifieds, they seem to have some good pictures of everything.

    They are old enough now that a few people are starting to create their own body kits for it.

    Scott Tucker’s SCCA D sport racer
    Probably one of the best motorsport stories ever.

    It is a one off, but I don't think it has been made for any games ever. Would be crazy fun to race with.

    Didn't Tucker run into legal/financial problems back when he was in the ALMS?

    The top car is cool, also I think it's not that much work. Cockpit is probably just like a formula car.

    I believe (not 100% sure) that the car is just a full body version of the Pro Mazda car of the day. That is another car that is raced a lot at the club level.

    But yes, pretty small formula car early 2010s looking cockpit from what I can piece together.

    Engine is a Mazda MZR. Couple different versions of them. I saw 2.0L and a 2.3L listed in sales adds. Seems to be really close to the Tatuus PM-18, also a Mazda MZR. So that could be borrowed physics wise.

    All in all, just a neat car for people to learn on that has never been made before to my knowledge.

    I got that always in mind, that the cayman was the first one. I just got fed up and angry while doing a skin for a upcoming 24h Nürburgring race on the cayman, and a friend of mine, who is a bit more into 3D skinning and so on noticed that, just put the 3D model into blender and also the ACC, the old GT4 Cayman from AC and the 718 GT4 by guerilla from AC to compare these cars. I think by looking at the car alone, you think "mmh something isn´t right" but when you got the comparison between the cars you notice, that this small difference in length and the roofline that is a little bit to high in combination makes the car look a little bit weird.

    But still paying big respect, for what you did with this car from scratch without any blueprints and looking forward to the RS, that maybe will get a GT4 outfit too?
    We are now racing the Cayman together with the Enduracers Alpine in a NLS league (also Clio, TCR,, DTM 91, 911 Cup and GT3 class) and we are hoping that other modders also will have a look at this class. Maybe with your upcoming Supra, we can apply the physics of the Supra to the Maserati GT4 that is a little bit outdatet (if we can contact the modder of it).
    Would be nice to see this class growing

    I think I posted this before, you are going to make the ACC crowd very angry. They have been begging for the Supra & Mustang GT4s for years.

    Won’t tell the RD and Purchasing guys of my customer Toyota that the Supra is a German car, I might lose a lot of my business for some reason :eek:

    How cool is this! Beautiful. :)
    Just like the DeTomaso Pantera and Mangusta, this old beauty looks gorgeous with the racing dress.
    And those high heels shoes... so sexy. :p
