    This 9 year old abomination just got a well-deserved update - the concept was promising, but 2011 me didn't really develop it properly. The big wheels in the back and the humongous rear wing are both gone, the car is now properly mapped and repaintable (it comes with a PSD paintkit) and features texture-drawn details and shading/lighting - shoutout to norfair for teaching me stuff about car detailing and ambient occlusion baking! Features a new set of Pro class RWD parameters courtesy of ElvenAvenger - it's surprisingly easy to control and can be quite fast, but the exposed rear tires make it a bit of a wall hugger so handle with care.

    I had a lot of fun making this one, expect some more of these oldies getting reworked later on!

    PS: I know the foldername (candy2S) is a bit eh, but since I wanted this to be an update of the older car, I had to keep the foldername I used back in the day, sorry y'all. Have fun!

    EDIT Sep 12th, 2020: retraced rims for the red skin, fixed pureblacks on the purple one, thanks Elven.

  1. Never seen the original, but suffice to say, this is an interesting remodel ideam on Candy Pebbles, making it an unique old design of a classic car, really cool actually. I am familiar with wheels skirts but never at the front, very unique indeed. You win bonus points for that.

    As for how it handles..stable-ish going at fast speeds,but slow speeds is prety much undriveable – if you turn left or right – you will almost do a complete drifty 180. It also likes huggin walls, literally, like there’s a magnet so, unfortunately, I don’t like how it handles.

    Overall, it looks cool, but mastering it will take a lot of attempt so, unfortunately, not my cup of tea.
