    That "temp" car gets loaded if the game can not find a mesh or texture or something else.
    Did you get an error message while loading the car?
    If not, check the trace file, that can be found in the folder "..\Steam\steamapps\common\rFactor 2\ModDev\UserData\Log", if you can find an error in it.
    If you can not solve it, open a private conversation with me and send me a link of the uploaded mod, if you like.
    I'm sure i can help you with that.

    If there's an error message, you'll almost always see the temp car, so you should fix that.

    To be sure which error message is caused by your car, you should leave only your car in the devmodes vehicles folder.
    And error messages normally tell you what is wrong or missing.
    For us it's hard to say what is wrong as long as we don't have the mod.
    There are different things that can make the temp car appearing, but mainly it's meshes or textures that can not be found.

    A simple check is does the car load in the showroom?
    If yes it's a good change the spinner gen.ini. is correct. If not look at this first. It's a simpler set up in the gen ini.

    Once it's working in the showroom you need now to get it showing on track. Check all the search lines are correct.

    SkipBarber spinner gen.ini (Showroom)
    SearchPath=<VEHDIR>
    SearchPath=SkipBarber
    SearchPath=<VEHDIR>SkipBarber\maps
    SearchPath=SkipBarber\maps
    MASFile=SkipBarber\skipbarber.mas
    MASFile=cmaps.mas


    SkipBarber track gen.ini (Note
    SearchPath=<VEHDIR>
    SearchPath=SkipBarber
    MASFile=SkipBarber\skipbarber.mas
    SearchPath=<VEHDIR>SkipBarber\maps
    SearchPath=SkipBarber\maps
    MASFile=cmaps.mas

    Be aware that in this example the search paths are directed at Mas. If your car is open file rF2 will not find it. Use the folder name.
    Any error here will cause the car to load the Temp.

    In the Instance entries, make sure your GMT parts are correctly named and the entry in the gen.
    Instance=SLOT<ID>
    {
    Moveable=True
    MeshFile=rter_body_max.gmt CollTarget=False HATTarget=False LODIn=(0) LODOut=(99) ShadowCaster=(Dynamic, Solid, 256, 256) Reflect=True
    MeshFile=rter_undershadows.gmt CollTarget=False HATTarget=False AmbientObject=(True,Texture)
    Actor=VEHICLE

    No shit Sherlock! Genius!

    Meshes for a car don't have HAT and Collide checked, but that's not the reason when a car don't loads.
    Besides of that, i can only repeat what i have said before, to save you a lot of time for searching, posting, searching, posting.....
    Upload your devmode folder of the car and send the link to me or someone else who offers to help, by private conversation.

    Are your search paths correct in the spinner file?

    Try removing the p004 mas file search.
