Hi alx,
I think that looks quite promising, especially given the minimal amount of time you've had on it. Is there any animation, or have you just produced a still?

Are you likely to be able to do any more work on it?

On my machine the 'Sorensen' codec proclaims itself as being Sorensen 2' on the settings page, so I think you've probably already got it.

I was also starting to wonder about how and where we are supposed to actually submit our final versions...

Wow that looks really good, especially for the short time you've had to work on it. The poles and the wires are great. You almost get the impression that this badass car is causing the rip in the street.
