    Some thoughts:
    • I made a trivial mod that lowers the low upshift point to 1700 RPM. This makes basically every variant but the Battlehawk more driveable (it causes some weird behavior with the Battlehawk due to its insane power and tall differential). It does not fix the issue where the RPM's jump slightly between gears, but it is a major improvement.
    • You can have power or handling but not both. The V6 is relatively lightweight but anemic in stock form, while the V8's are powerful but heavy. I would consider adding a sport V6 AWD variant as the config I made strikes a good balance between speed and handling.
    • The Luxe interior could use matte woodgrain and more seat color choices - as it is, it looks cheap. You can practically feel the hard plastic through the screen, flexing and creaking as you press on it. The piano black trim is going to be covered in fingerprints within minutes and the seats are the color of baby diarrhea.

    This. I feel like with a lot of the interior touch-ups that have been happening as well as the debut of the Bastion is that the tan/cognac interiors are all a little too orange - and the Bastion and SBR are the worst of the bunch for this. I'm also with you on the trim, it would be nice to see some wood grain.

    Overall I love the thing but I feel like more could've been done to separate the Luxe version. The interior could use some TLC and I'm not a fan of the use of heavy duty/super heavy duty suspension because its firmness makes it not feel that luxurious. It would be nice to see air suspension or at minimum, a comfort suspension like we see with the ETK packs. Like I said though, in general, the thing is a beast and I love it.

    Love this car! Really excited that there is now a modern muscle car like the Charger. Great work!

    I disagree with you on the caramel interior colour of the Luxe. I find it awesome looking and, besides, it's a real-life colour (search for the BMW Cognac Nappa Leather Interior). The piano black cosmetic inserts look nice and suit the Luxe interior theme well. Dark wood grain inserts would also be nice but since we're talking about a $40-45k car, I don't see them as necessary.
    I agree with you on the comfort struts on the Luxe versions however. The Luxe variants are meant for calm, relaxed and stress-free driving so it's better for these variants to have soft struts than Heavy Duty ones that have stiffer settings by default.

    !Warning! Gavril needs an enemy for new Bruckells

    Edit: maybe it need Dodge Demon like config. Will be "low-end dragster"

    I love this thing, it's a perfect representation of modern american muscle. However, does anyone else find it a bit weak in terms of structural strength? It seems to fold up in a crash a lot more easily than the other modern cars in this game. After a small overlap hit against a solid wall at 100 km/h, the driver's seat is pushed into the steering wheel, and the distance between the firewall and the A pillar is shortened considerably. For comparison, with the Cherrier FCV the interior mostly stays intact, with only a bit of intrusion.

    yeah, the jbeam is a bit janky. it’s probably because they cut a few corners to get it out in time for christmas. it’ll probably be fixed gradually in future hotfixes.

    They already fixed the suspension arms and links, so the stiffening process has already started.

    Just found out something: when you fit AWD to the Battlehawk Redtail and engage 'Drift' mode, this mode disconnects the front transfer case but it gets reconnected in the other modes, just like in the modern ETKs!! :cool:
    I mean, who's gonna put a front diff to the Battlehawks? They already have plenty of traction! But hell, AWD turns them into even more astounding machines! :cool:

    I love this car, I’ve driven it many times in the few days it’s been in the game… however there’s one small thing. Could the V8 versions get the engine/exhaust samples used in the bolide with some tweaked parameters? My dad drives a 2018 Dodge Challenger R/T and especially from the interior I’ve noticed that the engine/exhaust note sounds like the bolide’s in BeamNG more than the V8 sample used in all the other cars.

    They really screwed up the 8-spd auto in the bastion.
    got a temporary hotfix from someone on the forum who just made the torque converter a little bigger because the vanilla one apparently was to small to handle the power.
    Works good for now but i hope the Updated Shiftlogics mod gets updated next year, unfortunately the mods author isn´t so well at the moment and he given permission to freelance work on the mod but i got no skills for that so i stuck with that for now.
    Otherwise great vehicle i really like it!

    Why does all the varients that have sportier parts like the red tail have no textures on all parts of the bumper like this?

    it looks like half way in they said lets make it look like a maserati and than they said try to make it a dodge and did not want to redo the body i think it does not look like a dodge at all but the 2015 to 2021 years and trims and v8s makes me think its trying its best to be a dodge twin

    I wish the brake lights wouldn't flash under hard braking events. That's not permitted in the US for the main taillamps, so it wouldn't be on a car like this.

    Otherwise this is an amazing addition to the game!

    I just had an idea: how about a BCPD variant of the Bastion, with the same 5.7 V8 AWD powertrain and all the Police features? Belasco City's PD needs a modern vehicle, I think.
