Apologies, I just found out that the Carrera GT fix was already updated a few months ago.

Carrera GT update coming when?

@TEARTSTREAT900 We'll be getting more car updates out soon, but I want to keep the next update a surprise. Stay tuned! :D

TEARTSTREAT900 (March 28, 2022 @ 23:45)
Next the Pontiac Sedan or the Z06?

@therazorkille Thanks for pointing out the rear quarter panel decal marker issue on KIT03. I will fix that over my spring break from college. :)
