The mod is good, but when I realized that the transporter was removed, I was upset, I downloaded the old version where it is, and it works and does not break, you can only push the platform in and out, and so it works, fix its functions and add it to the new version of the mod.

A super fast Christmas present
Although im not an amazing driver, i agree with a lot of these reviews. the physics and aerodynamics are amazing, however the car is very fragile and unstable. It understeers in slow corners, as well as oversteering at the exits and in fast corners. This car has a lot of potential, and I encourage you to keep improving it. But great job on everything else. :)
The idea is preety cool, the car is also very fast, that is a plus for me.
The controls are fine, a bit hard to control in the first 100 mp/h but after that it drives pretty smooth, altough the car car is gonna airborn when I turn to much at 200 mp/h, but that is not really a complain.
altough I don't like the mesh, the car is extremely fragile, it already loses 2 or 3 wheels when I hit a wall with 90 mp/h. plus the car doesnt have a proper bottomplate what I think is pretty unfortunate.
Time for a longer review.
This car gives the impression of what it is. Made in a very short time as a bonus.
I am on a Logitech G29.
Looks and sound: 7/10
Positives: A lot of it is modeled, and a lot of it is off of the procar which is a good quality mod. The push rod suspension is animated, and its strongest part in this sector is that it lights up. The mesh is custom and not bought off the internet, so at least a 5/10. The sound is a 10/10. Sounds amazing.
Negative: As you said in the description, the mesh is meh, same with the textures. It really gives the impression of made in 24 hours. A lot of it is bland and meh. It isn't even smoothed. The textures are just 1 color.
Positives: Fast, it has downforce which you feel and see, and is quite an animal to try to tame. It being hard to drive gives it personality, and makes it feel like you are working to actually drive something that is real and alive.
Negatives: As said above, it is an animal that is hard to tame. It is very hard to feel when the rear end is starting to get unsettled. It is impossible to save when it starts to go sideways too. Trailbraking is impossible, turning without accelerating is impossible too. It understeers incredibly bad unless you are on the throttle, which 90% of the time will result in a spin. It understeers when you are not on the throttle, and oversteers when you are on it. Coming out of a slow corner is very hard as if you just slightly break the rear wheels free, it is impossible to hold. The balance is all over the place too. I struggle to drive it flat out around a large banked oval. The ffb is also far too strong and shakes crazy often.
Positives: Custom jbeam, at least 5/10. Parts break off too.
Negatives: the tubular chassis doesn't bend at all. The beams break, same with the meshes, instead of bending. Nothing in the car bends. If you try to rip off the clips, it will break a node off, and you will have to break every node off manually. The suspension breaks after any tiny shunt, and doesn't bend at all. It doesn't spread out energy at all, as when you hit something, the wheel on the other side will break off. Its made of about 5 parts excluding wheels.
Positives: The aerodynamic model is extremely accurate. If you bend the rear wing so part of it is angled, you feel the rear end trying to move sideways. If you tap a wall and pop the front into the air, it will stay there and try to backflip. If you slide backwards at high speed, you will get a blowover. I don't think I've seen any car, modded or vanilla, in this game that does that. The car also lights up and glows when you use the lightbar binding.
Negative: There is very little configurability, and in the tuning section everything is in different units. Range vs height, newtons vs percent. The car also doesn't come aligned, and the car's low beams are useless.
Added up, this is a 7/10. I will round that to 4/5 stars. Of course making a high performance vehicle like this takes more work than many other types of vehicles, but there are ways it could've been better. Of course it is supposed to be a quickly done mini bonus present for the community and I will thank you for that. Most people probably wouldn't make a bonus mod for the community. As advice for next times, I would suggest to try and take parts from vanilla cars. They are already done high quality, and probably would be compatible with what you make.

I really like this mod, the car at least. The transporter's lift does not work very well, as it likes to break the truck, and it doesn't blend, you cannot get it to where a vehicle is able to enter. Other than that, I like it, it makes sense and is very original. I like to mess with the car on tracks, it is fun.
I'm gonna do a constructive review in goal to help to make it better.
So let's start by positives points and negatives points after:
Yes, it's original
Yes, it's beautiful
Yes, it's faster
The handling is absolutely hellish and the body fly when you hit the smallest pebble of the track.
I saw in another review, the creator said to a user to get better at driving. I wont say something about that, I'm not making a review about the personnality of this guy, I'm making a review about his mod.
I'm playing at cars videogames since 10 years, so I'm not a fool, I know what I mean and you can be sure that the problem is not from the driver only, but from the car too.
It's a Christmas present, yes it's nice but for Christmas you have a car and for April fool day you have a tree (or the 40s roadster who was coming on the other side of the road).
I think you should admit that there is a problem with the handling and you should work more on the fact that the car decomposes herself without reason (I drove it on many tracks).
Another point, this time about the flatbed: good idea, but useless if you don't show us how could we move the bed.
I know it's hard to do a perfect mod but some peoples of this website made it, so that mean it's not impossible, so you can do it and that's why I'm trying to help you by making this review.
one of my favorite mods i've gotten over the years and too the people who complain about driving it hears my Top Gear Top Tip! You cant floor a V10 ultralight and expect it to magically grip to the road like a slot car! So solution? buy a cheap controller ex:Xbox 360 controller its not rocket science.
