This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Update 1 - There seems to have been some continuing issues with the CRES files that were causing the sim to be off center. I believe I have fixed this issue. PLEASE report it to me if there are any further issues. Re-download this file and replace the existing file in you folder.

Hi All,

You all may be starting to wonder where I am finding the time to do all these projects as I have uploaded quite a few lately. This formula 1 racer is a year old. I just now learned how to add it to a package. There was another guy involved with this project and, after putting it in a package for me, he disappeared from the internet never to be seen again. The package wasn't right, so I had to redo it. That's the part that took a year to get around to learning. LOL Anyway, here it is, finished and ready. I hope you all love it as much as I do.



This download will not run without NightLife installed

Trezillah helped me with the original package for this. I would not have been able to finish this without using that package.

Thanks. I think it looks cool too.

My sims thank you for the cool wheels. Too bad we can't see them racing these cars in game.

Let's M. Schumacher use it in the roads of TheSims2! It took a long time until such a car was made for this game. (Strange) Thank you!!

No. Smithy had promised his girlfriend at the time that he would not do anymore joint projects with me (She was a creator too and it made her jelous???? I think it was then that I asserted that she might be crazy). Anyway, I asked him...he declined. The guy that helped me with this owned his own site and was devoted to making new vehicles. Then his site shut down and he disappeared. I wish I could remember his name. I think it was something like Godzilla or something. I had to rebuild the package eventually, but I'd still like to thank him.

That's the guy! He helped me with the original package for this, but I had to redo it. I used his package for reference on how to edit the CRES files, though, so I will thank him above now. Thanks.

Sorry folks. I noticed there were some issues with the sim not being centered in the car. I think I have corrected the issue. Re-download this if you have downloaded it before the update.

I'm SimCeleste hubby and she was right, I love it!

And I wouldn't worry so much about the sim not being exactly centered, I think the car is great just the way it is...
