    Let me know if you need more data... If have some from an RF93. And I can probably ask for some of an Aquila FZ/FD.

    MikeeCZ: are you referring to the Van Diemen or the Ecoboost car? Haven't collapsed any of the meshes yet so they are still not perfected although the Van Diemen is quite good but not cleaned up post collapse. The Swift is the only one that has a final A-load completed and textured. Will have the low poly loads to generate as well.

    Bjorn: If you have any data available for the Ecoboost car that would be very welcomed. I have nothing on pickup points on the front suspension inboard or outboard. Very little on rear as well. No dimension data on wishbones, and no dyno sheets on the engine. In other words I got nothing so anything would be appreciated.

    For the time being I'm focusing on the Van Diemen and Swift DB-1 and trying to get those working well in game. After those are completed and made available I'll swing back to hit the FC van diemen (wings) and try to finish up the Ecoboost car even if I have to use van diemen geometry.

    And hopefully there never will be ecoboost in Denmark...

    Fireeyes - I work on a Mygale SJ07 that I could measure up? Might even have access to a Van Diemen RF06 - If i ask one of the other teams nicely. Are you still missing data? :)

    Hi LasseJO - Yes I would be interested in Mygale SJ07 measures. That is a car I've wanted to do for a while but have had no access to in any way. I have all I need for the RF06 however. That one is well on its way.

    I'm picking up an Ecoboost (Mygale M12 SJ) next month. I should be able to give you the measurements you require.

    Hi andylaurence, that's awesome. Ping me when you can.

    BTW: brief update. Van Diemen is done with modeling and has all texture maps complete. We believe susp. geometry is accurate within 3-5mm ('06 wide-track). Currently completing PM/Chassis and other physics files before exporting to game. Will post of images when I have time although I may wait until I have more textures completed. Looks crazy with test texture. Work's been nutz with travel lately.

    I sent a message a while back, but it's not in my sent items. Weird. We have the car and I have raced it a few times. We'd be keen to test the car in a sim versus the real thing. We've a season's worth of data for correlation and I've been reviewing it on my website.

    Hi Guys!,
    Any progress?, would love to see this completed. I have a 2006 Spirit (duratec) if you want any measurements.

    Is it on the CPM? Center tire temperatures seem pretty high.
