    Just amazing!!! I love both cars of this Update!!
    The Bolide, especially in its USDM variants, gives me Magnum, Miami Vice and Against All Odds vibes! The 5mph bumpers make the whole shape look like what John Davis said about the '86 Lamborghini Jalpa: a constant chorus of pleasure and pain! :cool:
    The new proportions of the body have to grow on me a little bit though, because the previous shape seemed more flowing in its relationship between its roof and the C-Pillar but OK, it's only a matter of time! Besides, driving comfort comes from better fitting! ;)
    The Bastion looks great and the Redtail variant is just insane! I have to try out the Drag variant to see what's what! ;):cool:

    Definitely, it's very fun to roll a V6 muscle car down a cliff at 80 miles an hour

    Look around 0:30

    where dis?

    bc afaik, that's no official map at all whatsoever (def not WCUSA bridge, already checked - note lack of dual-yellow lines)

    and lots of fog means they're hiding something - it's the only concealed shot

    Remember when I made my predictions for the variants of the bastion? They weren’t too far off, just from looking at the reveal video. Can’t wait to play when I get home!
    --- Post updated ---
    Hmmm…… it looks familiar, yet different at the same time.

    I like the Bolide remaster, but the bastion leaves a lot to be desired tbh. The model itself looks great, but the Jbeam is flawed and the engine sound is just awful. Having the same engine sound from the truck and every other V8 in the game in a muscle car kinda sounds bad and unrealistic — and a big part of the experience for me is engine sounds. Others might disagree but that's just my opinion. Otherwise everything else is fantastic

    Isn't that SSRB ? It's a mod but it was made by Nadeox, which means it could potentially come in an update. Nadeox even started working on it again after quite a bit of time.

    ETK Center looks nice at night. Sadly lilypads has been deleted from the pond.

    Agree with everything. I am also very dissapointed with the engine sounds. 3.5l V6 sound exactly the same as the 2.7l V6 pessima :(

    A 3.5 V8 sound the same as a 6L+ one so I don't see your issue

    The sound isn't awful, it's very good. The fact that it's shared between a modern Muscle Car and an 80s truck is what we need to focus on. I agree with you on Jbeams though. The doors have to be a bit more robustly fitted to the body. They seem to shake a bit during hard off-the-line acceleration.

    I'm very happy to see that we finally have another off road build a la off-road Sunburst, that's one of my favorite configs in game and I can't wait to try out this thing. Hope to see more coming up.

    Still no sign of additional graphics options though.... I still want to use some of those photo mode filters for normal gameplay...

    I found unused light bars in the common folder, they look way better than the current ones we have. Bastion already has the bottom one but without some of the accessories.

    Rest assured we also would like to use more varied sounds, but the harsh reality is that there are none...
    We are looking into other ways and sources, but as usual, our requirements are so different that choice is basically non-existent at this point in time.

    That trumpet of a V6 fits a Japanese economic sedan nicely, but it doesn't fit a big American sedan

    This, plus the Bastion and Bolide having detailed police interiors, makes me suspect a police car overhaul is in the works.

    It seems they still want to have the "generic" lightbar (top) blink I assume. I still wish it had rotors in it instead, it would look a lot better imo.

    So I'm guessing the Grand marshal is next for a Remaster.
