We didn't do the whole process of converting from TD3 to Stunts. We took the models from a Blender file that was available in another forum from somebody who had done the conversion TD3 -> Blender and then, we had to make some touches to complete Blender -> Stunts. With the dashboard, we didn't have a way to read it from TD3, so I simply took screenshots and clipped them and then put them together. This means that this process, at least from our modest perspective, is non-reversible. But... if you do know the format in which these files are stored in TD3, then it should be possible.

If you were to do something like that, you would have to do some extra work. The car behaviour characteristics are likely entirely different from those of Stunts. We haven't imported that at all. So you would have to recreate that. And TD3 dashboard include a 3D-shape part too, with windshield cleaners and all that Stunts does not. They even have a ceiling mirror!

Do you know this Old anime ?
Pole position is inspired by the videogame from Namco. Only 13 épisodes. The car is closed to Knight Rider (Hovercraft mode, Hook,etc...)

I've never seen that anime, but it'd be interesting to watch :D  The car looks very whimsical and the dreamlike environment of 80s sci-fi cartoons is really appealing to me!  So are you going to make this car? :D

The cartoon is liké stunts. But it's difficult to see it now and it stayed in m'y childhood memory.

The opening.

Why so classified? No top speed at all?

Turbo and Zoom are two cars from a secret organization. I thought it was a good idea to write "classified" on the characterics.

It looks amazing! :D  If I can give a suggestion, instead of the repeating "Classified", it could be just one line that says "Other specs. classified".

Ryoma, feel free to upload the screenshots as attachements here. You can attach more than one file to a post. That way, they will not disappear when CasImages* decides to delete them.

Yes, ha, ha... It called my attention when I saw it. I thought "Maybe my future-self created an image hosting site and took it to the present" XD  But no, it's not me :P
