    Wow. I love the 4wd hillclimb Version. Great job. Can't wait to try this beast. Looks so promising. We definitely need more hillclimb tracks for this beauty.

    This is the link to the "uncut" version of the official promo video: http://isiforums.net/f/showthread.php/16553-Community-Videos-Thread?p=352736&viewfull=1#post352736

    After more than four months of development and my countless pressures to the manufacturer Dennis Palatov for stealing time to his development activities of the real cars, we finally are closed to the release.
    I would like to thank also the several persons that participated to the external tests that were very profitable!

    nice vid, was already quite excited for this car but good to know i can officially be anxious for it now. the collab w/ palatov & ISI makes me as about as confident as i can be this is going to be quality mod.

    This mod is as good quality as anything out there, including original ISI content.

    An edited version of the video should go to VirtualR and other sites ASAP.

    I already knew from the very first early beta test vehicle that this would become one of the best and most popular mods for rF2 ever if the proper development and co-operation could continue--it was that good already. As Slow Motion has reported, it did, to all of our benefits. You will be blown away by the dynamics of this car first and the simulation of it second. It is a great advertisement for the real car. Imagine a go kart crossed with an Indy car. Or an Ariel Atom with some body work, but even better balanced because look where the engine sits on this baby.

    Congratulations to Slow Motion and to Palatov.

    I would rate this at the highest possible rating, except for one detail that I am sure will get addressed in the near future. The engine sound is not yet at the superlative level of the graphics and physics. But that will come. When it has a visceral sound that matches the real car, there will be no rF2 content in existence that can claim to be better quality.

    In the meantime, this belongs in every rF2 installation and I can only assume it will be an auto-download option in the launcher given ISI's awareness and participation in the development.

    I couldn't be happier to see so much hard work come to fruition.

    I guarantee that this car will be the number 1 hit of 2015.
    I have never tried anything like it, to be frank.
    Totally unique and simulated to perfection.

    Brace yourselves..! :cool:

    When you get this car in your hands, concentrate on brake usage in corners, your lap times will greatly increase. (and don't forget your seatbelt)

    The braking power and efficiency of these cars are amazing due to extreme light weight.
    Feels a bit like a F1 car in that regard, which is just awesome.

    So remember, when you take it for that first spin, that you can brake incredibly late and gain so much time.

    Edit:
    And another little recommendation...
    Go for a drive in the wet as soon as you can! The wet tire is great!
