    Fun little racecar!

    Sound seems a bit low. And AI with names and RCD would be nice....

    The challenge by Hexa, I was like wow dude, do you even simrace? maybe go back to need for speed lopl.

    But then I noticed turbo was still default....:/

    Lovely car guys, am having good fun with it (turbo1 for now!) and a bloody great display of community effort!

    Thanks so much to all involved. Stunning achievement. Benchmark release. Speechless.

    P.S. Love the heat haze as I glance to the side

    Remember that realistically, the Turbo II would be paired with AWD. The RWD and Turbo II is sort of like the AC Cobra 427--for the very brave and probably a bit crazy only! There are lowered power AC's that are not so insane. The standard-engine D4 is actually an awesomely well-balanced car. Think of go-kart crossed with lower-level open wheeler. I love it.

    Just needs a better quality and louder engine sound to be an 11/10 in my estimation :) Perfect for leagues, online and offline (though a few AI issues are there, not surprisingly...hopefully ISI will help to fix).

    Saw your name on another plattform, and i don't know what you contributed to it, but thank you, good job in total, and i have the feeling you are very good at what you are doing.

    Regards to all involved, well done.

    Sorry for hijacking the thread but i have some coins over and am looking out for people deserving the credit and this guy is one of those wanted. ;)

    I always said: more grip does not mean less sim, but this car in trackday configuration has far more grip than ac x-bow or pCars atom... In reality it has so much grip? Anyhow it's INCREDIBLY FUN, i really like it, it seems like a super go-kart!!! The only thing I do not like it's the cockpit view, it's too low poly in my opinion. In any case, congratulations and thanks!!

    Hillclimb in classic monte carlo is INSANE! Not many times in sim racing I have the same sensation.

    I think the grip is rite, but we simracers wud dare to throw the car into a corner coz its just a turn of the arms. Put some gforce in it and collision risks and ull see ull slow down a little if not alot before that corner.

    6:06.513, and I changed to the Tourist track seeing as thats what you fullas are using. Changed the wing to the little one too haha.

    Windows decided to do updates in the middle of the night while uploading the last video, hurrah. Crappy ass 1mbit upload means I have to leave the computer on all night >.>

    If I spend more time with it and wasn't as tired, I reckon this thing could easily crack the under 6 minute mark. I had a couple of wide corners and a lot of "scrappy" driving in the vid I'm uploading now, not at all the best way for sure. Look at Hexa's vid, he looks smooooove XD

    Edit: Vid link, still uploading

    Like with the last two releases, I can't use the "Download and Install" button in the launcher. The progress just sits at 0% for some time and then I get the message "Data transfer timed out". Always have to fall back to the manual download.
