    It's fun reading everyone's wild speculation, but it's also fun to keep people updated about what we're working on.

    The Ibishu Hopper is a compact SUV with coil-sprung live axle suspension front and rear, utilizing 4 control arms and a track bar. It comes standard with 4-wheel drive and is very capable off-road, even without any modifications. Engine options will include a 2.5L I4 and a 4.0L I6.

    Right now, it's more or less physically complete and drives quite well. There's still a lot of work left, mostly UVs and textures (and I haven't modeled the engine or interior yet), but it's far enough along to be worth showing off. It will make use of many of the new drivetrain features we're working on, such as ranges and locking differentials.

    What time period? The grill from the Pidgeon looks similar, so I'm guessing it's from around then. (I can't remember when the pigeon is from, lol:rolleyes:)

    Woah. Nice! Also you said,
    So does that mean it will get released with the transmission update?
