    Ok I did a lot with this mod


    -Changed materials and stuff
    -Added LHD and RHD
    -Both sides have correct interior camera position, parking brake, dash lights, etc
    -RHD has a gauge in km/h, LHD has mph
    -Added badging for Silvia, 200sx, and 240sx
    -Added engine starting and shut down sounds
    -Added S13 coupe with modified jbeam and lights, though it's not perfect and will need to be revised
    -Added coupe parts with modified jbeam, though some race parts don't have a jbeam to fit the car yet

    Update 3/20/20: Fixed much of the mismatching body panels on the s13 coupe and glass, although I'm not sure how disproportionate the silvia is now. Also, some spoilers now fit on the s13 coupe. Fixed configurations so that they are back to rhd by default. I also cleaned up the slot system for this mod and added black trim for the coupe and black side mirrors. For the zenki wheels, I added a hubcap slot. Added KA24E and DE engines using the sr20 model but with what I believe to be accurate torque curves

    Also, I tried to add the pessima's rws suspension for the HICAS because I thought I could just copy and paste a few models and the jbeam while changing some mesh names in blender and positions in the jbeam but the car kept crashing the game with that so it didn't work.

    RHD model of coupe (fastback is already in) will be added later because i need to get the jbeam for it complete first.

    Everything here is not mine except for the model of the chassis of the coupe (even then there are borrowed bits). All credit goes to MaxGamer1995 I guess.

    I also learned a lot from this so I can probably continue my subaru svx project

    For some reason, for me, the nissan badge, the sileighty headlight and the sr engine´s exhuast manifold is red. Should be chrome? I have the same issue with some other mods, Any idea what might cause that?

    That's strange, it's not happening for me with over 200 mods installed. I'm assuming you've cleared your cache, and if it's still happening, I'll try to change the material used and reupload some time later.

    Sadly the same result after clearing the cache. Im guessing one of my 200+ mods is conflicting?

    i remember seeing this in a private thread a long while back when i first got given the mod but cool to see an update, does "changed materials and stuff" mean the colours now work properly?

    This mod is cool. After the glass fix and some panel adjustments it will be great. Also maybe the possibility of fixing the two tone paint on the coup?

    I mean while you should ask permission from the original author, he has credited the original author in the post, among that, if you put your mods on a third party BeamNG mod site, you gotta expect people to change them, that’s just how it is. I’m not looking for an argument or any of that bullshit (excuse the language), but after the million amazing mods that have been announced, including the recent 180 by IceCream which would’ve been a masterpiece, if icecream hadn’t unfortunately hit some hurdles in life (which is okay, things happen in life, I hope he’s okay and recovers :) , and he has every right to cancel it), I think it’s about time there’s a decent S Chassis for this game.

    I’ve always found there’s a stupidly massive elephant in the room, and when ever I mention it, the discussion is deleted. What I’m saying shouldn’t be hidden for one, it should be embraced because it’s the god damn truth, if the community in this game wants to improve, there needs to be more creativity, more modding support, and things like meshslaps need to be stopped altogether, or regulation needs to be put in place. I mean since when can a LOD
    interior, non realistic engine model and specs and bad textures on an okay model be considered worthy of being private? Yes, this could be considered in some ways to be a meshslap, but it’s actually decent compared to some of the other stuff I’ve seen.

    Then there’s people who ask when it’s going to be released without reading the original post, despite when you first view a thread, it’s the first thing you see. It’s kinda funny but depressing at the same time, I’ve always supported the game, and the great work the authors put into it, but I just wish things like this were called out more. :)

    In short, what I’m saying is, people need to stop whinging about stuff like this, the original author was credited, he’s improved the mod, released it for free, putting his own time into it, gaining no financial benefit whatsoever, everyone’s entitled to their opinion, but creativity like this needs to be supported, unless the mod that has been modified from BeamNGmods, was stolen from another site, at which point there should be discussion.


    Rant over :)

    Alright, back on topic lol, I think it’d be cool, as a suggestion, but is someone able to contact icecream and see if some of his stuff (like the 1J), can be implemented with this one (with credit of course), and a proper physics model (brain exe has stopped working) be made for it? That along with some proper kits (origin lab, Vertex, BN sports), and some 50/50 led tail lights would be mintttt.

    Now that Icecream has released his mod he said that he hasn't worked on it in almost a year and it kind of shows. He has a modified jbeam and a pretty compete model from what I see in the blend file, but the suspension is still a scaled-down 200bx's like this one, so there isn't much point I guess.
