    Here i am, back again with another creation a not dead xd.

    I won't go into too much detail about the car (cuz it's almost 12 pm where i live and i'm really tired since i had been in a Spring Celebration) so here's a quick summary:

    - Always keep your high speed, or else the oversteering will be a real problem. This is something i tried to fix, but i couldn't do it without turning the acceleration into absolute trash, so i decided to leave it as part of his play style.

    - Drift and power slide most of the time.

    - Average acceleration, speed and handling.

    Fun fact: remember what i said in the description of Raging Bull about 2 other cars that will never see the light of day? well this one is my first (successful) car that i managed to create after a lot of attemps when i was starting to create cars. The other one, sadly, won't exist because i felt like absolute trash one day i when i looked at it i even called it trash and deleted all of the files i had for that car... Maybe i'll try to bring it back to life with a better style.

    Big thanks to Burner for helping me with the name and Mighty by teaching me how to remove the environment illumination on the underside.

    Like always, any tips, any kind of help and that stuff is always welcome because it helps me improve as a creator, blah blah blah, enjoy the car (the paintkit is inside on the car folder).

    UPDATE: changed name folder due to having the same name as another car folder (a Ford GT).

    UPDATE 2: parameters modified to make Sarthe more stable and new carbox.

    UPDATE 3: paintkit added in PSD format.

  1. Proper review time – Sarthe behaves a little similar to the Phat Truck, in the sense that it’s RWD, except this one is better. Based on an early 2000’s Ford GT, the Concept and production model of it that is, the Sarthe is quite fast and nimble enough to be a good racer on the Pro class, if you can manage it’s RWD predicament when it comes to oversteering and off-road capabilities it lacks.

    Plus at low speeds, you will lose control very easily, ending up on wipeouts, costing you time. and because in RVGL/Re-Volt, RWD cars can be, for the most part, a handicap, it’ll give you a lot of time to practice to recover with this car – Sarthe is fine, but these flaws can be a race over for you if you are not familiarized with it.

    Overall, it’s also a decent car, and we haven’t had a Ford GT stock-like until recently so, I recommend this car regardless.
