The Exhaust Note - A Car Magazine [new article 22jan]

Don’t worry, me neither.

But I did get some articles done before burnout/work/illness/update ruining mods and cars so only fair to those users to get them out. In the mean time catching up and getting back into the game.

Also got a great contribution I did nothing with from @strop though maybe he prefers posting that himself here or in a separate thread.


Well at least you took your time with it and it came out quite nice.

I only discover this now and I have to say you did a great work and you present some good cars of the forum!
If someday you come back on this magazine, it would be a pleasure to submit you one of my creations.

Honestly not fussed. I also had a combination of the things you mentioned and despite having my own challenge open have been having those issues as well! If you really don’t intend on posting it at all, then maybe I’ll dig it up, but otherwise, I’m happy for you to do it.

If you had a chance to review the Beam edition of Mercury, on the other hand, that’d be the thing I’m really keen on

So, I am almost through the articles I had prepared. I am glad you like them.

Apologies to those that sent me cars that I now lost because of game updates.

I will slowly start accepting new cars, though if many come my way I will have to make a selection (and considering the work I put into them, I do only accept quality designs).

I am currently most interested in:

  • modern production cars for review (most common error by the way that I noticed in all my reviews are too short gears. If you are not building a race car, it’s perfectly fine to not reach top speed in your top gear. Those 6th, 7th, 8th gears are overdrive gears for fuel economy. It makes no sense to daily with a car that goes 60mph in 4th gear at 5000 rpm).
  • old race / endurance/ rally cars or old exotics.
  • some more utlity based vehicle, preferably with lore or a story.
  • some kind of weirder contraption with a story, like a concept or a movie car.

We have to pm you to submit a car ?

Yes, here or on discord, as I do need the .car file.

Are you accepting .cars from 4.24 version a.k.a Open Beta or still from Stable version?


After some testing, Open beta seems to work, while the “stable” version is CTD or just doesn’t load the car designer. So I guess for now, only Beta.

An all-new Strop’s Corner - this time: On Gearing

By the one and only @strop








I’ve got three cars/articles in the making at the moment. I’ve gone through the material that I had.
I am still a bit looking at the format that I like. I kind of like the magazine format as I am horrible at formatting on the Discord Forums themselves, but if you prefer plain text with the occasional screenshot directly in this thread, please let me know.

The articles are there for your enjoyment and to flesh out your lore in the end.

I don’t mind current formatting, that is making pages. Looks nice.

I personally prefer the magazine look as well instead of the plain forum text and screenshot, as it adds a bit of flair and looks way more professional.

The current formatting is good. We shouldn’t make you use something you don’t wanna use if you don’t wanna.
