    I would love to see that, along with the 88 conversion :) , but I don't have the converting ability to convert tracks :(

    Yes, it works great :) Thank you for creating this outstanding cars.

    Noticed one more thing in VR. The body of the driver is a bit ahead. Centering VR and moving the seat is not enough to place the virtual head on the body.

    Just this once in German: Ich kann den virtuellen Kopf, trotz maximaler Verschiebung des Sitzes nicht auf dem Körper platzieren.

    Confirmed, Suspension shows correctly in VR for both Lola and March. Seat position is good for March, but too far back for Lola.

    IDK if they still have it. But if they do, you might be able to ask to get some cockpit shots from here

    http://www.kmvintage.net/1985-aar-eagle-85gc001.html

    It's not really local to me, but it isn't that far either. I'm about 125 mi away. I doubt i could just show up LOL!

    I have completed Arie Luyendyk- Just waiting on that material change for the red bit inside the cockpit
    I can still paint more cars. What should I work on next? I was thinking of doing the #71 Lola that a few drivers used in the first half of the season and Brayton drove in the second half.

    is it true that the All American Racers Team used also a Lola T900 Chassie? Would be interesting how the Car looked, i can't find a Pic from this Car.

    I have some pics on my Google drive link above. In the Tom Sneva/non indy folder, there is a good side shot. It's the pics are mostly from sites already listed, but it should be sorted where finding them a bit easier.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1985_CART_PPG_Indy_Car_World_Series

    It looks like Ed Pimm raced a Lola at Milwaukee, and Sneva at a quite a few races. I'm assuming the Bettenhausen AAR Lola was the same chassis used by Sneva and Pimm as they didn't both race a Lola at the same race.

    I don't think I have any pics of that car other than the Bettenhausen one though... I'll see what I can find.

    Just one very small point there, the arrows on the front tyres are pointing in the wrong direction. ;)

    I am not an expert either but to adapt the mesh to implement realroad and some improvement I think I can make it manageable.
