    I won't be taking ideas and/or suggestions anymore. I'll add what I personally want to add as I get way too much of the same suggestion all the time. Keep in mind that this is my mod and as far as I know I'm free to do whatever I want with it.

    Reviews are also there to rate currently available content, not to express your dissatisfaction towards the "lack of content" (which I always find funny considering there's plenty of stuff to play with). I know this might sound rude to some people but that's the way it is, I'm receiving way too much messages asking me to do X or Y and it is starting to annoy me. I could've never released this in the first place and some people are just ungrateful and think they can have everything they want which disgusts me.

    This mod was made for quality and quality only, not to have 200 configs and a million different parts,
    I also updated the first post to reflect this.

    I really appreciate the kind comments, as they're the ones that make me feel better and not like I spent 5 months of my life making this for nothing.

    I'm actually happy for that, I prefer quality > quantity

    And that is why this is probably the most dev quality mod we've ever received.

    People will never have enough, we live in an era in which people are used to getting everything instantly and don't appreciate craftsmanship, they just take things for granted and ask for more and more, as if it was that easy or you owe them anything special, they only know to beg and beg in exchange for nothing at all. Or maybe more begging. If you add the clownshoe, more engines, and whatnot, they will end up asking for a hearse of an ice-cream van version for the sake of it. Worse still, you give them what they want, they get it, and run away without even thanking you. And most of them come from brand new accounts created for this, so it's even sadder.

    My mods are not even half of the effort you've put into this alone, but I feel that pain, after all the effort just having people crying over things they want, or even worse, using reviews as 'punishment' for what they don't have or issues than can be politely added into the mod's thread is something I see every day, it has happened to me as well, and you are definitely doing the right thing, care for those who are respectful of your job, and discard anything else, at one point I felt like giving up on the forums and ending my mods, but I still want to do things, and I enjoy people enjoying them, so I'm not going to let some children ruin the fun for everyone, that's for sure, stay strong and remember you have done quality for sure, those persons will never be happy no matter what you do. They will not bother reading the first post as well, but you gave the warning anyway, so it's all on them.

    So long story short, since these people don't deserve a single more word from me or anyone who cares, as said in the review, the mod is dev-quality and something to feel proud of, anything that can be improved or added is only about the little things, and of course not even the vanilla stock BeamNG cars get it right in the first try, so it's quite an accomplishment. In other circumstances I would suggest a few things here and there, but I don't normally do it, and now even less, since I understand the work behind, and having dozens of persons telling you, even in the right way, to fix or add things after all these months is really tiresome, so nothing to add from my side for sure, it is really great as is.

    Thank you, for releasing this awesome car. I can't get enough of it. The Kc6t tt-Sport is just so perfectly to drive from the first run on. It's so pleasuring to drive it on the limit and despite it's a RWD, it's surprisingly forgiving. Just the best car i ever driven. No doubt about that.:D

    Now it is officially THE highest quality mod on the repo (always was but now it's official). It just passed the Vertex and Satsuma 210 in terms of ratings. If you want highest possible quality then this is the mod for you.

    Well since I hate to be the guy who suggests/asks for things on the forums, I decided to give modding a try. I looked around a bit on the forums, and seem to have found the variable for steering. Sadly, I can't get my "custom" drift steering to not break. And it's not like I gave it some crazy angle or anything. Can anyone help me?
    I changed the value from .06 to .11

    but it just seems to break everytime i reach anything past what the original lock used to be.

    anyways, if lucas does consider this, I'd say that it would be a nice quality of life improvement for this car.

    Increasing steering angle is not as easy as changing 1 value. The suspension of this car seems to be geometrically set up to not allow any higher angle. Changing this would likely require a ton of work and could mess up the handling. Not all cars are meant to have drift steering.

    awh man, from what i read on a different thread you could change the grand mashal's pretty easily. Seems that isn't the case here. Thank you for telling me, though.

    Grand Marshal probably has less strict limiters on the suspension, this is a sportier car so must have stiffer ones and/or less free rotation angle of the wheel I guess

    Makes sense. Shame it isn't as easy, but I don't really know what I'm doing enough to try and make this work.

    Does this car mod drive like a real Z3? I personally really enjoy this mod 10/10 and it would be cool to know that it feels like a real one:D

    With the changed lock limit you are going outside the limits of the steering beam.
    The beams are setup to be functional at certain length and stress to it. If you strech or compress it too much, the beam breaks. You need to create a beam with suitable properties (beamSpring, beamDamp, beamDeform, beamStrength,...) to work with the forces and geometries of your desired steering angles.
    So it isn't as trivial as change one value, as everything is interconnected.

    See attached the ETK800 drift vs. standart steering racks beams:

    Drift steering will be included in the next version as well as race steering/quick ratio

    I don't understand why people are complaining about this mod. It's one of the best that have been posted in a while. So what if it doesn't have a million configs. And complaints should only be for things that are wrong with the mod, like texture issues or glitches, not a lack of racing parts. And as far as glitches go, it's completely flawless and I haven't found any yet.

    In terms of bugs the only thing I found (that I'm not sure if it's even a bug) is that the triangles on the doors glass area are asymmetrical for some reason but idk it could be intentional
