This is a pleasure to see, and i think his ''Car rig script''(link is in the TwoOneOne's post) video is also very interesting for Max users. It shows some very useful tips to make the car move correctly . I don't know if this script is already included in Max 2013 or if it's a customized script. Anyway, if i were a Max user, i'd give it a try :)

I'd give it some more bounce in its suspension. have it 'wollowing' a bit more. Right now, it looks like the suspension's rock solid.

Everythig ele is amazing!

Ah, thanks for remembering me of this, wanted to watch it for quite some time now.

Looking great (especially the Caprice :D), headlights arent perfectly accurate tho. Also, a Peugeot in NYC? And I agree with dr.feelgood, the suspension should be softer so the car gets more bodyroll.

Well and the paint looks kinda too reflective for a nyc cab.

I agree...a little too much refection with the paint, Mayor Bloomberg is getting carried away with the Prius and Altima Taxis, I personally like the Crown Victoria and Impala/Caprice taxis better. very nice CG movie!

Prius? Altima? WUT!? What about the Honda Insight and Chevrolet Sonic? Those would be cooler picks IMO

This animation was pretty cool though
