    It might be an ARM related project, but it doesn't involve Lo Scassatore's moniker :P

    Gigi once tried to recreate (as CONTINUOUSLY requested by RobDin00, wink wink nudge nudge) the Dust Mite seen in the loading screen (see where LS comes from now?) using parts from the vanilla car and our Superfox 4WD replica (another ARM project), but it was just a bit more than a parts swap - so I offered my help. After some months, here it finally is again...

    - Higher poly model built using subdivision surface + some manual modelling.
    - Slightly higher detail on suspension and chassis bits - also shock towers and bumpers are now fully 3D, no pureblack trickery anywhere on the model.
    - Remade, cleaner and textured studded tires using the Superfox 4WD ones as a guideline.
    - Fully baked texture. No paintkit but super friendly mapping - it can somewhat be skinned. (Note that stock Mite skins will NOT work out of the box with it!)
    - Slightly more competitive parameters with respect to stock Mite, more on par with the likes of RC Bandit.

    I eventually plan on giving this car a couple playmates (i.e. Phat Slug and Col. Moss LS, as seen on the background of the loading screen), so stay tuned.

    EDIT Sep 10, 2023: New inertia values and tweaked suspension for better landings on bumpy tracks.

  1. This is nothing else than perfection. While driving this little fella for the first time I got this strange warm feeling somewhere close to my heart, which you don’t get that often. This version looks like Dust Mite always should have looked like. It does not have the typical stock Re-Volt style (there are all these nice little details – the wheels are awesome!), but in this case I don’t care at all. Beside the great optics I didn’t drove a car with a more realistic RC-car feeling in a long time. 5++.
