    I'll send a PM later :)


    When finish. :oops:

    Thanks :)




    Today and yesterday has been spent working on the front suspension JBeam and doing alignments for my 2 current configs, Stock, and Street/Track. Biggest issue I'm running into is excessive under-steer and washout in the Street/Track config... It bites in, however it doesn't hold it. I'm currently reading through some general alignment troubleshooting stuff trying to make it better.



    My biggest frustration with this car has been the suspension. I just can't seem to find any references for it. I know it's a double wishbone independent front and DeDion tube rear, however I don't have a clue for the suspension geometry. So I've had to guess and engineer my own.

    Also...

    If anyone has a decent resolution blueprint or a factory drawing of the original stock suspension itself, front or rear that they can share with me, I would greatly appreciate it. I've spent hundreds of hours on this project searching for something among those lines and haven't found anything, and I'm not satisfied with my work because

    While what I have currently is decent and usable IMO, I'm not confident that I'm staying true to the original car, something that matters a lot to me.

    Ooh, exciting. I'll crack my wheel out ready. :D

    Yeah mirrors can be a pain to attach firmly with how light yet relatively complex they tend to be. If attaching them to the roof works then can't knock it lol

    With each mod you make, you've been getting better and better! Keep up the excellent work my friend! You've grown in your work and it shows. The Cosmo is amazing.

    I've been to that website several times, somehow I missed that. Thank you though, that will make coloring this slightly easier.

    I also found this while searching earlier;

    I've seen a Cosmo in atleast one of each of these colors, seems to me this is almost spot-on.

    Unfortunately, No. Wrong car, and wrong perspective. I already have that kind of view here in the parts catalog I found;

    Thanks for trying though :)

    I haven't seen a blue one yet, and there's only a single green one to be found but I don't think that's original.

    This looks really great, I can't wait to drive this in a game other than Forza Horizon 3.

    (P.S. @Stoat Muldoon congrats on being a staff member!)
