Basically over a few weeks(just randomly adding here and there, not really spent a great deal of time on it) i have been working on some form of race type car as eventually in syn3h there will be racing, hence why i ended up starting this project
 
oh and just so you know it may look like there are holes as to where the lights go, but there isn't one it's just see through (like glass)
 
there is still some work that may be done at some stage, but i felt like posting it on the site anyway
 
 
enjoy taking a look at it
 
 
 
at the moment it is 0.5 of a meter tall, by 1.8 meters wide, by 2.2 meters in length
 
 
now with some colour

Me like!

Might wanna make that really long section between the cockpit and the wheels just a liiitle shorter. It looks like it'd snap off if it hit a bump. :P

you should make the back of the car longer and add front stabilizers if you want it to fly like the buggy or it would have a hard time getting off the ground.

The side vents look big and kind of awkward to me; I'd make them a trapezoidal shape with rounded edges, and closer to the body as well.
I like how you put the wheels on the side of the vents; that's something I wouldn't have thought of that looks surprisingly good.
 
The vent up front should be more rounded as well; or if that's not the look you're going for, please specify the look you are.
 
I agree with the others, at least cut the length in half, and don't leave such a blunt nose on it.
 
The dome-y looking cockpit design just doesn't work for me, I'd make it a more sweeping design toward the front, since you have so much room.
 
I'd suggest different looking headlights too, they aren't that good looking, if you want you could put a single band across the front instead of a grille.
 
Great work in progress, I hope to see more in the future.

i think the problem with the side vent's is that the car it's self isn't very tall thus making them seem a lot bigger(overall height of the car from the bottom of the wheels to the top of the cockpit wasn't that much over half a meter in height)
 
there isn't that much length i can cut off from the car
 
there isn't that much free room to spare

Is that a dune buggy!??!!
Looks great I like the big wheels. But make them more rugged if you want it to be suited for the terrain of Mars!

The body shape I have a problem with. The single curve seems awkward and unstable. Adding a second curve for a slight "S" shape would increase the model's durability, as well as lowering the COG.
 
Other than that, it's good.

Hmmm... small project eh? 
lol, this would take me about a month or more to build, and even then it wouldn't look half as good as it does right now. 
Sweet car by the way.

The Toyota Prius is arguably the worst car ever made and is so incredibly hypocritical that I can't bear looking at one. NO.
 
How about a modified version of the car from Achilles' car world?

I am curious, What version are you using? It looks nothing like Sketchup 8.

As you become more familiar with SketchUp, it will come to you!

I see that you are trying to make this car similar to a formula. But formulas are extremely... "flat." 
So my opinion is to make it... "flatter."
 
By the way, seb, I love the wheels. 
 
When can you export this to unity?

this is the old one guys...... i kind of remade it
 
this is the more updated one http://marsxplr.com/view-10110 
 
and no i will not make you a Bugatti Veyron, as my spear time is used for making thing's like maps in unity, and those two cars, at any given moment i don't have a lot of spear time so not a lot gets done
