    don't know, the Jacques Villeneuve car looks a little bit strange, it looks different to ehe other Marchs, I have edited the shape a little bit, lower nose, bigger windscreen, the part around the cockpit is more square, the driver position is deeper (is "Uncle Jack" so short?)
    what do you think?

    Who would have thought that this one chassis had this many variations!
    I just noticed the head rest area must have been an addon body panel

    Also this did seem like the most common rear wing end plate of the reference pics that I found. Penkse had the current Option 1, and that smaller option 2 one seemed like a Long Beach/ short oval package. I haven't confirmed on the video.

    But IMO, that does seem like a lot of minor stuff. I like what @Corti said, is make that high "Red Roof inn" area lower and raise the helmet up just a little bit from the latest WIP. That should great! The side scoop on the left side along with the body line should be moved forward. Other than that, I'm completely ok with the way that the model is. I look forward to any update!

    From what I see in actual photos vs. the in sim cars, seems the 3D car body needs to be slightly longer ??, both the March and the Lola.

    No ill will intended at all Chief, just comparing photos with the 3D's from differences you brought up from the Villeneuve car is all.

    I should be quiet, as jymp says, my intention was to help your query ("don't know, the Jacques Villeneuve car looks a little bit strange .....")

    I'm not sure but is there such a thing as an "Evo" kit? It looks kinda like the 84C nose/chassis with the 85c side pods.

    But honestly, I think it is over kill to make it that version and/or redo the whole thing. If rF2 was more like rF1 where you could simulate whole seasons and have body changes for each race, then it makes sense. But don't kill your self :)

    I agree with you Chris. It looks like an 84c with modified bodywork. Evidence is the notches on the cockpit walls that are similar on the 84c. We are all working with a sparse amount of information, and what we do have is mainly grainy photos and legends dotted around forums. Virtually every driver had a different sponsor race to race. It's highly plausible that a driver wrecked a chassis so they bolted the 85c aero on the 84c to make do, or that a driver simply liked the handling of the 84c better. The 85c was an early Newey car, and some driver's just don't like the planted rear.

    I read a report from the 500, that Jacques crashed 2-3 times in the month of May, before being replaced by Johnny Parson's. So I guess it might be possible that they could have used an 84 chassis.

    Unfortunately this doesn't give chassis numbers. But I also remember reading an article that this was the first Indy 500 that had the whole field all using brand new cars, so that would mean it would have been a 85C
