Title: Stunts elements in real life traffic
Post by: zaqrack on April 01, 2014, 06:29:16 PM
This one is in Shanghai, about 5km from our home. The Nanpu bridge. Very nice bridge - double! up/down corkscrew combination:

It looks like futuristic art from the 1910's. Private car traffic is so old school :-)

I heard a loud engine today and I looked out of my window. Parked below was a Lotus Esprit, I think from the early nineties. What a nice sound!

Likely my favorite car ever. Though I heard it is awful to drive and even worse to repair - the chassis is made out of large molded plastic elements. Since it is unlikely I will ever drive one, it can stay my favourite car :)

I spotted this bridge designed for Stunts pipsqueaks in Albania:

Yes, I'm digging up an ancient topic, but I wanted to agree to this. Especially the James Bond era Esprit's just look so cool and fast and everything. Best looking car ever. But yeah, apparently not very special either in the garage or on the road.

It has great dirt-road grip in Stunts though, it makes it one of my favourite cars!

Hot Wheels stole the idea of Stunts

Roundabouts would nicely fit into Stunts. :D

I can almost see him speed up.

I'm not sure, but maybe symmetric splits with illusion elements actually manage to design roundabouts in Stunts...

Definitely a speed up there, but I hope they managed to hit Esc in time, because the landing doesn't look good.
