The original post was updated with your suggestion and a few 9ther finishing touches. I think it looks better. What’s your take?
I don’t know much about the other touches, but the wing certainly looks more realistic if a little busier.
It’s hard to make this body not look like a freight liner, so it ended up a little messier than I intended (for example the headlights are nowhere near regular sealed beam size). That and it really needed a new V8. But it was this or a refresh on my 1985 body… and I do love me a Durango. I believe one of my friend’s parent’s first gen Durango was the first SUV I ever rode in - to this date neither myself nor my parents have bought one.

am i able to submit OB Entries?
I think you meant open beta, the latest version of which is now available.
So OB isn’t Open Beta?
The update to OpenBeta (e.g. clear windows now) is compatible with the older builds, unlike that big update a while ago. I don’t see why we couldn’t submit them?
i have no idea at all
Calculations have changed and not to mention all the fixtures and bodies that are new in open beta and not in stable. It would depend on what Vic is using, really. Be on the safe size and aim for stable for now.
I haven’t had good luck with updates not blowing up my files, even when it’s supposedly “safe”. So I want to hear from the competitors. Choose:
A ) Stay in Stable build for now
B ) Update to OpenBeta with the caveat that if my existing save files blow up, I’m just going to end the competition (because I built out EVERY engine for my company from 1946-2020 before the competition even started, and I ain’t redoing all that work)
Stable it is.
I’m in Open Beta, and I’m going to submit in Open Beta, and I’m going to accept all the risk that comes with that choice. Apparently the Open Beta cars into stable is only minor suspension and stat differences and I’ve not seen any trouble with engines or compatibility as yet!
I’d vote stable for the time being and I guess subject to change for the next round? This current round already started in stable so no reason to change it imo.
I’d rather stay on the current stable release for now - my submissions were made on that build.
Since I’ve downloaded the open beta but I did back up my sandbox files. Can I download the stable, put the sandbox back. Build my generations cars. Then re download the open beta and then put the sandbox files for the open beta back in and then import the generations cars that wouldnt be backed up in the sandbox any more?
im just gonna play it safe and use stable
