I was lucky enough to recently find someone willing to trade for all the gear I was missing (hopefully I've passed them along to any of you who needed them).
In the process I was introduced to something nick-named "Glitch Gear". There is one helmet - "Horizon 00", and one suit - "Double Stripe 00".
These have no thumbnails once they're in your inventory, and supposedly your Bobs will be invisible in this gear, although I have not tried it yet myself.
I was also assured that there was no danger of corrupting your game, but again, I haven't tried using them myself.
I have them in my inventory, so I CAN attest that just having them in your inventory doesn't cause any problems.
Anyway, long story short, if you're interested I'll send you these. Just let me know here and I'll send them the next chance I get.
Also, in the interest of paying it forward, anyone looking for ANY gear can contact me here as well.
To those of you who already knew about glitch-gear, sorry if I bored you!
EDIT - sometimes receiving the horizon and the double stripe at the same time will show up as 2 double stripes or two horizons in your inbox (at least that's what happened to me). Just receive them and they'll appear in your inventory where they belong and named properly.
If you want to shoot me an FR, I can send it to you directly. I was hoping to only send it to people who specifically ask for it, in case there are problems later. I'm probably just being paranoid...
Invisibility is what I'm told you'll get...
No problem, sending now. Thanks for passing it to Swerv, two birds one stone!
Hey Swerv, still feel free to shoot me a friend request if you like!
Hey WP, i'd be happy to pass it on to swerv as i was going to shoot you a pm asking for both when you had a chance.
invisible huh, i have to put a bob in a cobra to get a good look at this............
Got it... and passed horizon on to swerv.. Thank you very much!
I have not sent these to you, do you want me to now? I had stopped sending gear until your mygt page was updated...let me know when you want me to start sending stuff again!
Update: just sent them over.
I got ya DM sending right now.
i tested the gear out last night with my a-spec driver and a bob. no invisibility, though the colors did change. in a spec i was in the art morrison and the suite was black and dark metallic helmet then with a bob in the cobra it was a white suite and bright blue helmet.
