looks great, any updates on this beast?
Gabe is buzy on the semi truck now.
Yes, I may like these cars, but I would love to have a brawn smash the bird-brain in the race update first!
I had no idea about those facts I called it Bluebuck because the Bluebuck is a type of antelope, same as an Impala, and this car is very similar in size/styling to an Impala. It also goes with my theme of starting old Gavril names with B (Burnside, Barstow, Bluebuck, Bandit, Beaufort, etc.)
Something like a 70's econobox like the Pacer or Gremlin would be cool.
(And no, im not telling gabe to do a licensed vehicle)
It's a late 70s full-size sedan, like a Ford LTD. I'm thinking it'll end up being a Bruckell, actually.
What suspension layout will this be using?
Wait... The Burnside was a Gavril?
In the sense that Buick/Cadillac is a relative to a Chevy/Pontiac, apparently.
Gabe said that burnside is Gavril's now defunct higher quality line up.
Wow this is news to me!
It's kinda like Mercury I guess...
The Beufort reminds me of the WW2 British bomber
Same as every American car from back then. SLA IFS in front, live axle rear suspension with (probably) leaf springs. So basically the same as the Moonhawk, D15, or Grand Marshal.
Leaf springs in the rear were a given, but it looked a bit like a Dodge so I was expecting front torsion bars. But I suppose its more meant to be an Impala. Also actually simulating the twisting of the bars themselves might be difficult.
Just FYI, ive got a 64 Oldsmobile and last i checked it had coils on the rear, not leaf springs. i know leaf springs were used almost as much as rubber for tires but there are some exceptions
EDIT: its a starfire, which if i remember was built on the same platform as the impala of that year
Checking up on some pictures of 63' Impala chassis, and yes they have four wheel coil springs. So with an Impala having coils all around, the Dodge having front torsion bars and rear leaf, the system's he's putting in is closest to a 63' Ford full size.
I might go with coils in the rear, I don't know yet. They're certainly easier to simulate.
What was this car based off of? I see Chrysler in that roofline and Dodge in that bumper......
The blue and white car posted earlier resembles a 1961 Dodge.
