As nice as it is to see new cars appearing in the game... not too many of them feel like they handle believably yet. The only cars I want to drive right now are the Leonus 68 and 77. The others just don't feel good to me. I would rather have a growing number of well handling cars rather than a growing number of pretty cars. Or maybe this is just the way the production line works...

I really dont think that the people handling the art for the vehicles is also working on the physics, at least that's not how development usually work, so I dont really see why they should stop working on new vehicles while the people in charge of the handling do their thing.

Yeah, I know... hence the reference to the production line.

That´s a great job. I love the seams at the exhaust and how detailed the suspension is. What a great 3d-model. Well done.

Good Morning Big Ron and all other guys !

As usual, our development team is not cutting any corners when creating the virtual versions of these magnificent machines, modeling every single nut and bolt for a maximum of realism and authenticity.

Thats part of promoting. For all those include me with realism Questions ! This is something that me personell overjoyed ! :rolleyes:

I know what you are saying Wally and I would normally agree with you if it were not for the fact that it is the Caterham we are talking about here. Lol

If for no other reason, I would buy pCARS to drive a good version of a Clubman.

Do you own one, Rob? I'm counting on your feedback.

Haha, I wish mate. Haven't been able to drive it for a few months now, starting to get withdrawal symptons :( I guess that's why i'm looking forward to the Caterham.

Is it just me or is the AA in this picture poor?

Can we improve this picture or just remove it? I think it reflects negatively on the project for a new guy who doesn't understand the process.

I agree, it's a Max shot with AA off, never intended for PR use. None of the shots blow me away to be honest.

It´s enough to see the details. No need to always show high quality renders. People with healthy eyes can see the quality work behind it.

I can't wait to to try this in pCARS. If there was one car i actually rinsed and felt right in SHIFT2, it was the Caterham.

If you do so, let us see these bolts, screws, brakes and springs in all of their glory. Please, do not just hide them behind the wheels.

Can't wait to try this car out and see how she drives. I can't help but think what is more fun and rewarding building this car on computer or in a shed. :)

Maybe thats why I liked shift2 as the caterham was pretty much the only car I drove.
