The three Lola's are beautiful. Very unique schemes for sponsors that already have recognizable existing schemes, too.

I love the door numbers on the Post-It car. Overall, very nice schemes!

Passat is a L2B template, the Lincoln I got from one of Cooper's megapacks in the Repository

Thanks, I think of the three, the Havoline one is my favorite.

Thanks Ben! Really wanted to make that one unique compared to other 3M/Post-It cars!

My only problem with this is that the Yellow Red Bull car is very hard to see anything on it.

hmmm, I don't remember the Lincoln template being in my version of Cooper's megapack scratch

Also, was the Caltex logo intentional on the #64?

And I forgot to say this, but I loved the Pay driver cars!

It could have been another one, then, I honestly don't remember since I've had that one for awhile!

The Caltex logo is intentional on the 65. Figured I'd give it a bit of a twist on the more normal Texaco logo while still being true to the sponsor, Caltex being the overseas brand and all.

10: Not sure I'm feeling the number (too thin?) but no complaints otherwise.

23: Nice base. Coke logo above rear wheels on the red one shouldn't be so stretched out.

45: Maybe swap the white and blue and see if that looks any better. It's still good as it stands, though.

51: That template is nice. Nothing else to say, really.

53, 54: Genius. Only thing I can say is that maybe the numbers on the Edition cars could be a bit shorter.

55: Okay there, Jerry Nadeau. Razz Maybe do a color swap of the roof number/oval/thing.

56: I'd switch the white and silver on the numbers. Solid otherwise.

61: Perfect. Would be just as good without the metallic, though.

62: Also perfect, except that the "Lite" logo above the rear wheels is stretched to heck. Maybe put it at its original length, then add "Miller" to its left.

63: See 61.

64: Love the number idea!

65: You could afford to move the black part of the gradient backwards so that the yellow number doesn't blend into the yellow base. Speaking of yellow, you may want to make the yellow color of the Havoline text match the yellow striping - the Australian product uses a flat yellow as opposed to that gradient.

66: Number could be a touch bigger. You could probably even remove the strokes. And the metallic.

78 Air China: Awesome base that incorporates the logo very well! You could afford to swap the black and red strokes on the number.

78 CT: Again, the base is inventive! You miiiiiiiight want make that green spot red, though. The rear logo looks a bit choppy, too.

78 Caixa: Great, except for the excessive strokes on that orange part.

78 Fitbit: Good use of the Xxxtreme base, but the numbers do not work here. Maybe they would if you filled in those spaces.

78 Pirtek: Best car in this set.

79: The Transformers font is hard to pull off - you did it well on the 59, but I'm not sure it works here.

Commenting on the ones I posted on Reddit too, eh? I appreciate the feedback, I see some of the issues you're pointing out.

No worries, I was teasing. To actually respond:

9. I was considering doing something like that, I just didn't have a good idea of how to go about it.

23. I stretched a few to fill the space, I may fix it and add the "Taste the Feeling" tagline.

51. Yep, this one's a backmarker. Laughing

55. I'll give that one a try, but I may leave it as is.

59. I've been going back and forth on this one. I'm not exactly happy with the font, but nothing else "fits".

61/63. I think the template has two layers of metallic, might remove one to see if that's better.

62. Noted, that should be fixed.

65. I may just wind up using the American logo, but I see what you're saying about the gradient.

78AC: That is a much better idea.

78CT: I may leave the green just to have some green from the logo on the car, but I will definitely fix that rear logo.

78CX: The excessive strokes were deliberate; I wanted to get a good "Brazil" theme going for this car.

78F: I'll try that one, too.

78P: It's my favorite one, as well.

79. Any suggestions for a better font? Aside from the logo font, of course.

As someone who has about 40 post its all over his cube, I love the 64 car. Laughing

78 cars are all very clean.

The 54 car looks realistic -- I could imagine a company thinking a yellow car with white reflective decals would be a good idea during a night race but it ending up looking tragically bad in action. In your defense, the first 54 car looks pretty good.

I'm not wild about the 53 car either, but given that a lot of racing teams seem to be obsessed with flat looking paintjobs lately (I really don't like them...) it looks kinda real, too. But the blue in the number circles is a different blue than is on the base, and I haven't seen much advertising for Red Bull Cola outside of the Toro Rosso F1 cars.

The 10 and the 45 are passable but the numbers on the 45 look too bland. Also, the clash of the new Pepsi logo and the old Pepsi-Cola text is a little bit jarring.

Love the 65 car but I still sometimes wonder what I was thinking with that template. Especially the huge vacuum intake. Laughing

The 79 car ... the base (on the sides) looks like it's facing the wrong way. Maybe you could have it go over the wheelwells and frame the quarterpanel text (which you would make white, probably). The choice of red numbers is a bit... questionable as well. Black or white (with a huge black/red/black outline) would be preferable.

#2 - I'm a sucker for cars with a skyline in them, but I think the number should be solid. 7.5/10
#6 - a Nice simple Petty tribute, without being a petty rip-off! Love the number too. 8.5/10
#12 - I would simplify the base a bit maybe rid it off the horizontal light blue bar, but that's minor and its a 8/10
#20/#21 - Love it! Although I do have a 2016 Accord template if you want it. 9.5/10
#30 Budweiser - Nice Simple Harvick style car! 7/10
#30 Bud Light - Same as above! 7/10
#30 Cardinals - EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW BURN IT WITH FIRE 0/10
#32 Valvoline - I would personally make the numbers so they fit into the blue section, it looks awkward to me as it is currently. 4/10
#32 Zerex - I like it better than the Valvoline car, but the yellow and blue need to blend better, also not sure about the silver bits 6.5/10
#34 / #36 I like how simple you kept them, with out making it look like you got lazy! 7.5/10 for Both
#37 Really solid take on the old Gordon car, but I'd go with either blue OR black. 8/10
#38 - Probably my second favorite car love a car with a good circuit board on it. 9/10
#60 - Solid car, nothing more to say Smile 7/10
#70 - Make the text in the back a bit bigger and you got a winner here! 7/10

On this one, the yellow/blue was supposed to mimic the logo. It looks odd, but it was intentional in this case Razz

Not feeling the number on the 21 car, but that's because that font serifs the 1 when no other digit on that entire font is serifed at all, and it's really big and annoying looking, too.

Regardless, I think a number font change might be the problem with the Red Bull cars... I think the font on the Toro Rosso cars in F1 looks a lot like the EA Sports font... and that's one of my personal favorites... Wink

Budweiser/Bud Light/The Cardinals don't mix well with Cadillac, because it combines something with no dignity to it with something that has dignity. Razz It's okay, watching Cubs/Cardinals fan brawls on my facebook feed (when I personally couldn't care less) is something I find HIGHLY entertaining. Baseball joke aside, they work as paintjobs, I just wouldn't associate them with a high-end car! Laughing

The STP car is nothing I wouldn't expect, the New Yorker car ... I have a problem with really bold red numbers 99% of the time, and it's because they're not very readable from far away. With the colors on the car, I think anything else would probably look worse. I do love the skyline bit, but that might need to be behind the number, not in front of it.

Love the Aldi car.

The 32 Valvoline car needs more space for the blue so that the numbers can sit in it. Then make the door numbers white. Very Happy

Zerex car is honestly the better of the two 32 cars.

The 34 car seems like it's begging for white numbers on the doors.

36 car looks pretty good but maybe some faint gradient on the yellow?

I have no idea where you got that idea for the 37 car. Absolutely no idea. I want to put it in the fence for some reason, too... ...yeah I'm a Rusty fan, what about it? Razz

I get the feeling the blue on the 38 car should be either white or black, the designs on the side are blending in a bit.

The 60 car is amazing, and the 70 is also. Maybe some filler associate sponsors, but other then that they're fine. Very Happy

Wasn't the most fond of it myself, but it "fit". I'll look into switching the font over.

With the colors on the car, I think anything else would probably look worse. I do love the skyline bit, but that might need to be behind the number, not in front of it.

Yeah, I'm thinking of turning the skyline down to about 5% so it's juuuuuuuust barely visible. As it is right now it's about 50%, I think.

The 32 Valvoline car needs more space for the blue so that the numbers can sit in it. Then make the door numbers white.

Zerex car is honestly the better of the two 32 cars.

Good call, I was having trouble with the Valvoline car looking off. MoI mentioned the same thing so it's probably good to try.

I have no idea where you got that idea for the 37 car. Absolutely no idea. I want to put it in the fence for some reason, too... ...yeah I'm a Rusty fan, what about it? Razz

The 60 car is amazing, and the 70 is also. Maybe some filler associate sponsors, but other then that they're fine. Very Happy

I actually did a third car for the 37/38 team that does have white. Still debating between the numbers being blue or yellow, that's why that one isn't up yet. If it looks good I may change the 38.
