Due to health/financial reasons, I'm gonna have to let my personal web-hosting site go. These links will eventually become dead. I thought I had paid for two or three years ahead, but I'm getting invoices in my email, so I guess I was mistaken – don't know and don't really care right now anyway. So if you want any of these cars, download 'em now, my storage was getting about full-up anyway.

I may post some future car's directly to the site; it'll just depend on how I feel.

Hi Chad,
are you ok if I download and re-pload them in this repo (so that they don't get lost)?

Hello, sorry to hear about your health/ financial problems, hope they soon disappear ;) You've helped me loads and I love your cars, especially the 1967 911 and 1970 dodge challenger :D
Thanks

Thanks guys.

I'll let you guys know. I've got some kind of blood cancer; don't know if its lymphoma or leukemia yet. So my financial situation is directly tied to my health ... I've got to prepare for the fight. Anyway, we need not speak of it again.

But on a positive note, I've just finished modeling a Toyota TS040 (2014) – completely different from anything I've modeled before. Still must do the setup and 2d work.

Here's a wire wheel I made about two months ago. It's similar to many European sports car wheels of the 50's and 60's and should be suitable for 1950's Grand Prix cars too. To test it I used WEC's Stormhawk. It has drum brakes attached so it can be used on open wheel racers. It weighs in at 442 triangles, which is a little less than the 36GP wire wheel.

The setup for this car is not exactly realistic, but I found a “sweet spot” that makes the car really fun to drive, so I went with that. Haruna can probably make it better.
