55Mod Update Patch - AVAILABLE AT THE 55MOD WEB SITE DOWNLOAD PAGE - http://55f1.gplworld.de/

ITEM 1:  There are unique 3dos and mips for the Maser, Lancia and Mercedes W196r to give the proper brake drum backing plates on the front wheels.
Also, for the Mercedes W196s there are changed wheel 3do files to give the appearance of in-board drum brakes all around.
ITEM 2:  The Gordini T16 has a graphics representation of the second exhaust pipe and slightly larger suspension openings.
These include the AI, player, default and all of the online carskins.  Some of the darker blue carskins were left with the single exhaust,
which is carried over from some of the race-specific AI cars that are being prepared.
ITEM 3: The Collins #36 car has the front grill trident removed.  This is the '54 style chassis which the Owen Racing Organization
painted a darker green than the other British teams.
ITEM 4:  Includes yellow #2 online Gordini.
ITEM 5:  Includes alternate brake temp fade indicator mip in the brabham car sub-folder. Cool state for brakes is no longer 'green' but 'indicator off'.
ITEM 6:  Includes player car #4 of Moss's 1954 Aintree 200 Maser 250F.
ITEM 7:  Includes player car #4 of Pilette's 1954 Spa Gordini T16.
ITEM 8:  Changes to all car main 3do files to eliminate stub arms when 'no driver arms' selected.
ITEM 9:  Added Merc W196 online 1024x1024 carskin #40; added Maser 250F online 1024x1024 carskin #34.
ITEM 10: Lighting angle on Connaught and Ferrari 625 mirrors adjusted.
ITEM 11: Ferrari 625 windscreen, dash and cockpit texture updates.
ITEM 12: Lancia D50 grill update. New Lancia D50 and Ferrari 555 mirrors.
ITEM 13: Tire textures given a more 3D shadowing.

Installation:
Un-zip this archive into your GPL folder (or for separate installs, your GPL55Mod folder) allowing over-writing of files.
The 55Mod car files will be placed into the cars55 sub-folders.

Option:
To use the alternate brake temp fade indicator, copy the tempfade.mip file from the sub-folder in the brabham folder to the brabham folder.

Credits:
All carskins are made from the original 55Mod carskins created by Royale, Shaun, MECH, sky, Border Reiver, francesco and ginetto.
Fix to driver arms view for all cars was made by MECH.
Adjustment to Connaught and Ferrari 625 mirrors reflections was made by hagapito40 - original textures by sky.
Ferrari 625 windscreen, dash and cockpit texture updates were made by hagapito40 - original textures by ginetto.
Lancia D50 grill update was made by hagapito40 - original texture by sky.
New Lancia D50 and Ferrari 555 mirrors updates were made by hagapito40 - original textures by ginetto.
Tire texture updates were made by hagapito40 - original textures by ginetto.

The 55Mod Team hope that you enjoy these updates.

Which exact folder should I unzip this into ?  I unzipped it into the GPL>cars>cars55 folder and it just sits as a folder in that location - There has been no overwriting which I presume means no difference when I open the 55 mod?  .
