    Heavily inspired by the "Bed Dancer" scene during the late 80's to 90's, here is ChoLoco's Grand Championship scheme!

    I understand. Im not saying You're in the wrong bc i dont even know myself if those ramps have been used on a released track or not. If they were, they'd be considered public and would be able to be used by you as long as you gave credit to who you got it from, is all im saying. If not, i would recommend you ask the creator before using them. When i started and didn't know how to model, i ripped so many props from other creators trucks to use on my own projects. I just made sure i gave credit and everything was cool. I kinda just don't get where all the fall out is coming from.

    If i may be able to chime in. If a project is released to the PUBLIC, imo i don't feel its necessary to ask permission. That project and everything helped make it up, is open to the public to be used in whatever way SO LONG AS the original creator is given credit for their contributions. If the project was kept PRIVATE and you (somehow) got a hold of it and started showing it off as your own, then there's an issue. If you think nothing on this site was used from components that were already released and/or public, you gotta look a little closer.

    1. It looks a tad top heavy, so i would recommend lowering the cab of the chassis maybe just a couple hairs to help bring down the body. At least until the bottom of the front bumper is sitting in front of the top frame rail. 2. Your top yellow tie rod is very out of place, i would suggest removing it completely and just having 1. 3. Lighten up your chassis color. Making it pitch black loses some of the detail. If you use paintDot Net, i usually like to make black chassis pitch black, and then raise the lightness of it in the Hues and Saturation menu up to 5. Good start so far, loved this HW as a kid so its cool to see you bring it to the game.

    yea guess i shoulda been more specific. i just meant to move to the newer F150 and then mod the cab how it should be. I actually made the modifications for NN extended cab, so ill probably send it to him if he gets me his discord.

    Avenger 2018 Pack

    In all honesty, I was a bit let down by these. Although, i do love the retro looking trucks and the RII lights, but those are probably the only take aways worth mentioning. I would definitely recommend creating clean crisp textures. The paints for every truck were very grainy around the edges and ruined the entire quality of the truck. Don't get me wrong, they are great and leaps and bounds better than previous trucks of yours, but they lack fundamentals.

    Constriction on Dumb Tough #5 has started! With #4 being a junk yard build due to a low budget for the year, the truck ended up handling poorly and the chassis design didn't help. Luckily, with having to save money on parts for the truck, the shows we did attend and outside hustles boosted our budget margins substantially. I've shown you how extreme i can get with very low money to use, now get ready to see what happens when i have some to spare 😉 So we start with the skeleton. As mentioned before, the old chassis wasn't very well constructed nor thought out and thus the truck performance suffered. This time around, I've done some studying and scouting to build the best chassis on the circuit and everyone better take note. Updates to come.... #DT5

    Well, its just the fact that all of the Rover's props are exactly the same, all of the body accessories are still on, the rims still have metallic shine even with a different color, aaaaaaaaand theres a BKT logo on Ukraines. All that tells me that you just took all of the orignal Rover textures and put your Dinosaur stuff on it. If im correct, then you need to re-do this truck properly by either cloning files to be assigned to your truck, or export everything with mesh, material, and textures files named for your truck.

    Please make sure that you have specifically cloned files or original exports for your Jurassic Park and didnt just over write textures. Same goes with Crusader

    Blue Thunder 2018 Custom

    you really had me going until you put it on a Chevy body. smh. and at this point, i would probably leave Dmilli out of the Blue Thunder picture. No disrespect to him, but it wasnt his truck. If that were the case, we would have to put Tony on there too. Let the truck name, belong to the truck. My 2 cents.
