    We promised we'd release it, and here it finally is. Based on the Nissan R390 GT1 and built from its TMAM rendition. Think of it as Nakajima's handling focused sibling, trading precision and acceleration for some of its well-known ballistic top speed.

    Parameters by Skarma, carbox by Paperman. Comes with a handy PSD paintkit as usual, with flattened individual layer for maximum compatibility outside of Photoshop.

    Includes two liveries based on the real life car, a Gran Turismo-alike "stealth model" and an artsy livery based on "The Great Wave off Kanagawa", my first proper attempt at texture baking.

  1. Another RWD car, a bad weakness to have, I wonder if this is another good looker, poor handler. Spoilers: That it is not. The Hoshino is the rival to the Nakajima, or rather a similar car in terms of the asian RC racers and they perform rather similarly, both are RWD, both are grippy, both are Super Pros and damn fast. RWD’s are their recurring weakness due to the fact they steer well, but as far stability goes in low speeds, off-road, slippery surfaces go.

    This one…goes off-road pretty dang good. In fact, it does it better than I thought – but you best going at speed – you slow down with this car, and you have to master it’s finickiness. Easy to handle at first, hard to master even in the long run. Doing so will not only ensure you will have maximum fun with it, but show it’s true potential.

    This car took forever to be made – but it was worth it in the end.
