Thanks for the yank translation because i honestly didnt know what you meant by bonnet.. lol! Wondering why you would put intakes on a hat...

ransick: Thanks alot. Not seen you around in ages, how you been?

blomkaal: Thanks mate

Sav1989: Thanks, gald you like it so much.

Ok I have run into my first real problem, I was messing around with mentalray and final gather and mentalray will not render if my scene conatins any displacment maps.... Is there any way to render this scene other than converting my displacment maps into actual geometry?

doing great dude.

it looks alot cooler>>

there something different about your tyres though.

are the groove supposed to be like that?

(A groove is the sunken part of a tyre's tread)

it looks to me like they are in the opposite way.

or my eyes are getting worse.

hehe

Yeh your both right about the tires, but there actually supposed to be that way. A monster truck needs to have tires designed so that they grip muddy surfaces very well, normal tires would cause the truck to slip.

That's a nice looking shader you got there. I'd keep it with the textures when you put them on.
