The WSC 1970 Sportscar Championship Porsche 917k

Description
We have updated our Porsche 917K to version 0.8. One of our team members had been pestering for a long time and now everyone gets to enjoy a better and more realistic driving experience.

This new release has a better garage setup that is conforming to the rules, reworked weight distribution, new lights, new steering wheel and a heel & toe option in the tuning menu !!

People involved in this project are:
3D work: yoss
Lighting: Tosch
Physics: LeStrat, Lgel

Sounds have been made for EVE Matra by Wolferl

We are using a Creative Commons licensed 3D model, created by godofbigthings

Since the update this mod is by far the best 917 experience I've ever had.

It may sound strange, but you can actually drive the car as it is showcased in old footage from 1970's or the movie "Le Mans" (where the actual drivers were behind the wheel anyway).
...
The car drifts and swings when you turn in, it is blasting out of the bend in a controlled drift... it's a pure pleasure to drive...
Unbelieveable...

Thank you so much for this car.

Sure, the 917 in other simulations may have more sophisticated, detailed models with a more authentic sound.
The AI buddies seam to struggle to go really fast.
But that's cosmetics.
This 917 is the real deal.
Drive this car on tracks like Spa 1966, Monza 1966 or any other historic track - and you feel like Jo Siffert or Pedro Rodríguez - or at least like Steve McQueen... ;)

Hi great car, as a livery maker, is there a wireframe template to download somewhere?

Great work, thanks!

Are the skin templates available for painting anywhere?

Fantastic mod, one of the most enjoyable to drive out there, its great to see it updated! Yoss, one question, for some reason with this mod the AI is not that competitive, I usually race at 100% but with the 917k I can easily be 4s ahead in one lap at Suzuka for example, is this a known issue?
