the_meco has released a new preview video of his excellent Porsche 917/30 mod project for Assetto Corsa, showing off a short suspension animation.

Based on the legendary Porsche 917K that saw success in Le Mans and various European endurance races, the 917/30 was Porsche’s take on the legendary open-rules Can-Am series.

The open-top 917/30 was powered by a mighty turbo-charged 5.4 liter flat-12 engine that provided up to 1100bhp in race trim and was theoretically capable to provide more than 1500bhp of power.

The 917/30 went on to dominate the Can-Am series until the car was highly restricted by the rules due to its excessive fuel consumption of up to 100 liters per 100 kilometers.

    Such attention to detail is simply stunning. This is pCARS modelling quality. Fantastic work, the_meco.

    Agree…this is top professional quality…no doubt golden era for us “simmers”! THANKS Meco

    24 cars on a grid all doing all this under the body and completely unseen is just crazy dedication (i’m not knocking it), but won’t this effect peoples fps greatly ?

    • the_meco

      This detail will only be for the highest level of detail. As the car is quite exposed, you can see all the rear engine from behind and the chassis from within the cockpit it needs the detail. Lower levels of detail will be optimized to help with better performance for large grids, so the further away the other cars the less detail there will be.

      Another reason for the high detail is I want to do some 3D printing when it’s done 😀

      • Patrik Marek

        3d printing! dude, let me know how it goes, I was thinking to 3d print one of my cars too, but I’m just afraid that the printing quality just isn’t there yet

      • Richard Hessels

        Just depends on what size you want to print it..
        Should be quite large to overcome the jagged edges from the 3D print.

      • Patrik Marek

        prefferably in between 1:43 to 1:18 scale, giving me model of somewhat 10-25 centimeters at the most.
        I’m aware that I would need to work on top of it, but yeah, havign to smooth out the jagged edges would be big downside
        would love it to be detailed though

      • the_meco

        Awesome! I need to look into it more. I think the quality is there but it’s more about how much money you want to spend. If it’s to expensive still I’ll have to wait a bit longer. I’m looking forward to the day 3D printing is common place, 3D modellers will become super powerful 😉

      • Adam Špaček

        The printing quality is definitely there already, it just depends on your budget…

      • Patrik Marek

        unlimited 🙂

      • Glen Orpheus

        as i said i wasn’t knocking it, in fact it’s awesome work 🙂
        thanx for the detailed reply though

  • mrtorgue
