    A high revving NA I4 is nice but I'd like the Race version of the Pessima to have a high revving NA V6 or, if possible, a turbocharged V6 (or even a high revving turbocharged V6), since such an engine isn't represented yet!

    I do expect i6, but it has to be swappable with everything just for the meme

    I bet the devs read through these with a combination of amusement and a fair bit of head shaking with some eye-rolling thrown in for good measure. Every now and then, one might raise an eyebrow and nod knowingly while offering a wry smile to the dev at the next desk.

    An Inline-6 would really make the engine bay look cramped. :rolleyes:

    If it is a Super Touring car like it looks, an inline 4 is the most likely engine. The only exceptions I can think of were inline 5 Volvos and V6 Mondeos. Natural aspiration was mandatory, and engine size was restricted to 2 liters.

    So if it is a Super Touring Car, the 2.7 V6 is out and the only engine eligible for it is the well proven 2.0 DOHC. Ok, we'll see how it fares!

    On a different note, I noticed that in the first phase of the D-Series remastering, 2 years ago, there was a detail I'd like the Dev Team to bring back in a future update: double front shocks. They would be great for handling, both on and off road, especially on the passenger versions with the Short Frames (like the Charro/Kentarch).

    edit: The double shocks actually exist as an option (called "Off Road Shocks) for the Solid Front Axle. For some reason, I was looking at the 3-Link Solid Axle which hasn't got this type of Off Road Shocks but rather a single type.

    Well, the V6 could be destroked and sleeved to 2.0. The original engines of the Volvos were 2.3 turbo I5s, and the Mondeos' V6s were 2.5, but they were downsized to 2.0 for Super Touring homologation.

    That's really nice actually! Such a small (and high revving) V6 isn't represented in BeamNG yet so there's yet another niche about to be covered! And the 2.0 V6, with performance-focused undercarriage, would also make for a more balanced and sporty alternative to the 2.7 V6 and 2.7 V6 Sport versions! :cool:
    Also, the 2.0 V6 could also be mounted in the Covet (either at the front or in the middle), for an even more special performance version than the 2.0 GTz Special Edition! :cool:

    If only i knew how to make mods, I'd make that instantly, maybe a rally version too like the MG Metro 6R4

    Maybe I'm a little out of the loop—it's been a while since I did any vehicle modding—but do we now have support for skins on glass? That wasn't a thing I think was possible before.

    There was such a mod for the Covet but it's pretty much broken now. It's very old.
    If the high revving 2.0 V6 makes it to the Pessima Touring Car, I hope the Dev Team includes it in the Covet remastering, whenever its time comes!

    It always was possible? Almost every glass have black tint around edge, I've seen mods with stickers on glass and finally D-Series have "dusty" texture on front glass.

    Glass tint is available on some vehicles and it's literally a glass skin, it has always been possible but only appeared in vanilla game with the first D-Series remaster, previously there were mods for it.

    That engine could actually be detuned and made "street driving friendly" for a special limited edition, with some Super Touring inspired aero parts and maybe a livery too.
