    I remember you sharing that with us in the Hot wheels collectors thread. :tup:
    Out of interest, is it land based?

    The idea was land based, but it does have a "hull" as well. Just in case

    Looks like it would be happy on both water and land.

    My latest design, a front engined VGT this time. Viper sized, would have a big NA engine, 200mph+ top speed.

    Wow! why haven't I heard of this thread before :confused: I've been working on my own design for a VGT for a while now, mind if I share it?

    ... :irked: Too bad. I'm going to anyway. :grumpy:

    It's a Maserati, which surprisingly hasn't been taken yet.

    Been obsessed by weird, turbocharged, AWD, weird looking Daihatsu Kei cars over the past few days, so I decided to make what I think would be a cool Vision GT for them.

    I present to you the Daihatu Mira VGT.

    Daihatsu Mira VGT.JPG

    Ideally, it would be twin engined with a 125HP, 1.0 litre, turbocharged 4 cylinder at both the front and middle of the car. Power is fed through a 6-speed semi-automatic gearbox to all four wheels, thanks to full time AWD as well as having 4 wheel steering. Weighs just over 800Kg.

    Various features of the car include flared front and rear arches, rally spotlights, adjustable rear wing, side exit exhaust pipes on both sides, gullwing doors, fully integrated roll cage and alcantara Recaro bucket seats with Sabelt racing harnesses.

    Thank you. I was trying to remember where I saw that one. It kind'a bugged me how he labels it as his own design.

    Out of curiosity, how much memory does this program take up? If its not too much for a low-end laptop like mine, I've love to try it out so give it a go at this VGT thing.

    I used it decently on a 2006 Toshiba with an Intel Celeron and 1GB of RAM. Yours can probably handle it. Things start getting slow when you start putting a bunch of objects with high polygon counts. That's where your (most likely integrated) graphics card starts to show what it can do.

    I have quite a low end laptop and it handles SketchUp very well. But yes as Ameer said it does get slow once the models reach a high polygon count.

    Grouping parts like wheels into single components can I think help to keep it going smoothly. Leaving shadows and textures off makes a big difference, at least with my laptop anyway.

    I'm not good at drawing by any means, but I tried.

    I haven't made any sketch in a long long time... Today I got the mood and made a quick one by hand. :)
    Very rough I know...
