Sorry if this has been said before, but have you decided if there will be a used parts section in the game (the classifieds)? One of our backer rewards was to have our name in the classifieds, so I hope this wasn't cut.

Ya I be curious if this will be there in career mode, the classifieds. This was one of the reasons I paid the $70 for my first copy of NCG\Wreckfest back in September 2013. To see Purple44 in the classified section selling badly worn, cheap car parts. :P

Number 1 is definitely a second generation Chevy Monte Carlo, and I agree that 5 is a Datsun.

I'm gonna agree with Daystar and say 8 is a 1975 Chevy El Camino.

I first thought maybe number 8 had the roofline/quarter window of a first generation Olds Toronado, which with a V8 motor and front wheel drive would be awesome in Wreckfest, but the rear wheel is set back too far for a Toro. Gotta be an El Camino, for Real. (subtle California joke/reference there - lol)

I'm curious if repair/crew system and seeing damage on cars after race in garage is also part of "And a lot more"?  ;)

Also.. would like to see some kind of small teaser/trailer before this update gets out it could also help to get more attention and it could also help to change a lot of negative reviews to positive.

Nice, but I hope the mechanical damage thing will not reduce the fun of crashing. If it's going to "punish the player's car for contacts and crashes", then I'm afraid it could. :/ That would feel counter-intuitive for this game, at least for me. I hope it's optional or adjustable in vanilla game without mods.

Now that there's a little bit more dev time - time to implement some more fun gamemodes. :D

Maybe, hopefully, there's possibility for enabling and disabling mechanical damage like in flatout 2. it was something like full, wheels only and none, right?

Oh, the unmitigated fun of a flat tire or bent pitman arm!  ::)
The jubilation of being stuck in first gear for half the race.  :)
Because there will be no greater joy this Christmas than limping your realisticly damaged car around the track.  :D

I guess you could just concentrate on being a slowly creeping mobile hazard for the good drivers who didn't f@(# up their car, and when it really starts to suck, you can park that wreck in a bottleneck or blind corner and retire. Then go into spectate and put the camera someplace where you can watch others have fun until they hit your wreck and become a slowly creeping mobile hazard.  :P

There really should be some server-side option for a driving model damage multiplier. Surely Bugbear can agree to this.  8)

The classifieds is about the only benefit of being a 50 or 70 dollar supporter that would be unlikely to get shared among the community. The backer car, how long until that's out there for everybody's free use? The soundtrack? That'll probably get shared to anyone wanting it right away.

Anyway, I paid at the $50 level and I don't really care about the backer items. I'm just looking forward to the full game and full servers!  8)

Nah... don't need mechanical damage to park my car somewhere on the track and spectate. ;) Limping around the track in first gear sounds pretty horrible... 
Well, I guess different people have different tastes... "one man's meat is another man's poison."  :)
