    ok Guys, I will finish the F1 1975 mod now, but if you want you can have a first look on the Sports Car 70's Style, I know a lot of work is to do but the mod is driveable

    Does this require the F1 1975 mod as a base?

    So far, no issues running the cars. The AI tend to oversteer into corners which causes the back end to swing around.
    The Shadow & Mclaren, the two Chevrolet powered cars obviously are sharing whatever engine Chief assigned.(I get it...WIP) Just want to be clear the 8.1 litre Chevy Big Block did not find life from 8k to 11k on the rpm dial. 6600 to 7200rpm would probably be a more reasonable range for those large engines. The highest reving Chev was the 1969 430CI (7L) in the Mclarens. They used an oversquare wide bore/short stroke designed that allowed higher revs. But only up to 8500 max and almost NEVER beyond 7800rpm. The Standard customer Zl1 race motor by Chevy made it's top power under 7000rpm. Even before 1969 was over, some of the cars were using 460CI(7.5L) engines but all those depended upon the longer stroke available to Chevy engines and thus lower rpm. Most Ford engines used in Can-Am depended upon a short stroke and thus were always higher revving. (except possibly the 494CI(8.1L) but the max race rpm was certainly not anywhere near 9k, I would guess 7.8k to 8.3krpm would be around the top end of the Fords.) The largest Chev race engine was also 8.1L but they did try a 9L in practice.
    So, the point of this information. The big block Chevy's (which after 1967 were by FAR the most used engine in Can-Am)were relatively low revving grunt machines. Happy around 7k, stressed and overworked at 7.5k

    Quite nice to drive, feels good. However, the cars can get launched into the sky on some rough kerbs and obviously sausage kerbs. It would definitely be nice to have actual engines these cars used, I drove the Siffert Porsche and it had a DFV...

    Wonderful cars.
    It's all still a BETA.
    Keep it up, that will be something nice.
    First finish the F1-1975 and then finish the Protos.
    The strenght is to be found in serenity!
    I can wait.
