Looks great. I'm looking forward to this mod.

Initial Version 0.1a released.

http://www.assettocorsa.net/forum/index.php?threads/pm3dm-1999-nissan-primera-btcc-released-initial-version-0-1a.2372/

As can be gathered by the release version it's a pretty early release. Car interior/steering wheel is pretty rubbish. Externally it is gorgeous.

Having read a bit about the development of the "real" car, I imagine that the handling would be impeccable. The real car had the engine lowered and repositioned, and laser sensors at each corner of the car to accurately measure the ride height in real time. Development cost were astronomical.

Great fun

I ran a few laps in it, no idea about the real car so cant really comment on physics. The model is great and other then not being as snappy at the rear as I would expect most FWD cars to be off throttle it seems really good for this version number.

I only ran it at Gentrack but thought it had way too much grip.   It feels like one of the current GT cars but witha bit less grunt.

Did some laps at Nurburg sprint and got to say I really like this car  :)  physics & ffb felt great to me,  (although I'm no expert on this)
Nice to drive a RHD for a change too...  Great work  :)  Dave O.
NEVER TOO OLD TO RACE ... being competitive can be a PROBLEM though.

I was very surprised by the quality of the mod and this should be an excellent addition once finished.
