    I guess :D
    Someone from that club actually suggested me to send the club an email after I had a nice talk with him, because of that I made a short article and now a presentation.
    The moss story is just because I thought why not, a knock-off is so poor and doesn't really add that much imo.
    Or is it just a distraction to hide the fact that my meshes and materials are still not quite there?
    Who knows :confused:

    Decided to do some work on my birthday, apart from planning next year with the scouts...

    I won't touch anything related to the suspension until I have the blueprints of the car here.
    I will also see one on a car lift sooner or later, to make pics and check some stuff.

    Got the drawings for the MG TD today, many thanks to the MG TTO-club :)
    I will focus on drivability first, body and details will come later :)
    I think I will have progress tomorrow already.

    Don't think Blijo would abandon something with so much effort put in

    Told you that I would have some progress today?

    Well, here it is:
    screenshot_00448.png screenshot_00449.png IMG_20180830_142847.jpg

    After almost 4 hours of drinking coffee, measuring, calculating and converting(39mm on the drawing is 304.8mm irl), I am somewhat finished with the front suspension, just need to make friction dampers.
    As you can see, the steering axis is not on the pivot points of the wishbones but slightly inwards(upper wishbone) and outwards for the lower wishbone.
    I did exactly the same for the fintray: 2 nodes per wishbone end and one for the steering axis. All connected in such a way that the motion is almost or maybe exactly the same as irl.
    (mesh hasn't been adjusted)

    But, in all seriousness, this looks amazing; I'm glad (as the rest of us are to see progress. I will wait patiently for the release.

    Well, you are partially right.
    Some parts are and some were very simple, jbeam wise.
    I spent some time reworking the hood yesterday and prepared it to be split up in 4 sections (left/right and upper and lower).

    I also have to redo (parts of) the rear suspension, the body and other stuff to make it perform how I want it to.

    I also tested the FFB after I overhauled the front suspension last week, its a lot better but not there. I think I can fix it by working out the best way to simulate the dampers and optimising the beam values.
    And a overhauled rear suspension will also work in favour of better FFB, the rear axles hops a bit too much which is extremely annoying with more power and wider wheels.

    Some screens for people who don't like to read:

    Crashing looks great except for the roof looks a bit weird. Great mod!

    If you ever find the time, you should include a "Stig" but with the Aviator hat and goggles on. ;)

    You mean a stig with gray hair, a nice shirt and as old as the car?
    Doesn't even need the aviator hat and goggles :p
    But I can ask @synsol , maybe he wants to do that with me, would be possible since the seats are jbeamed as well.
