3D E30 Modified

Hey all,

I am new to this forum, so excuse my noobyness

I am modeling this modified E30 and loving it to its roots so i joined this forum to ask the opinion of guys who actually run these cars and know them inside out.

so if you spot any weird stuff going on in the model please point it out so i could fix it

Thanks in advance and i hope you will like it as i do

You need to flatten the angle of the spoiler by quite a bit. Set as-is, it would generate a lot of downforce on the rear tires at the expense of speed, and it would actually take downforce OFF the front end, which could get interesting in the twisties. It's more of a parachute as set now.

Other than that....

What program are you using.

Wow, how long does it take you to make those models? Wonder full way to quickly visually what one of parts would look like. Could they be 'pulled off' factor.
