    Progress update:

    Running gear meshes now showing up.
    Body, dash and fuel tank are now properly mapped and textured.
    Working gauges.
    Exhaust, hood and radiator now properly jbeamed.
    Suspension still needs a little bit of fixing/tweaking. If anyone is willing to, I would like help with the suspension.

    That thing looks cool.

    What sort of suspension issues are you having?

    The front suspension/hub is really weak like the wheels will pop off after driving it for a bit, i'm pretty sure it's to do with the steering and both the front and rear are really wobbly unless I set spring rate to around 90000

    I could make different frame options, one with and one without the bar

    Its great to see some New Zealand cars coming this way, I dont think we have had a mini stock yet in the game, we have had a Stockcar before but a ministock is more awesome

    Also, quick suggestion about the rear chassis bar thing.

    Instead of having a second variant of the entire chassis, you could probably just have that bar as an optional part of the chassis.

    And it probably doesn't even need any additional beam/node structure.

    Are you going for an Inline 4 engine for this car or are you going to splash out a little and go for a V6 or a V8 in it?

    I'll stick to I4 just because i'm trying to get as close to the real thing as possible (and they other probably wont fit) but I was gonna play around with different engines just for fun in my spare time and might release them separately

    Thanks, my next big project after my tuner pack will most likely be an old sunburst based on the 98 impreza since i've already modeled alot of it as you can see here.

    Not sure how it will go but i'll learn some stuff for sure like I did with the ministock

    You can also put Pigeon engine at it since it's a small (?) and light car.
