Data is in the readme, along with a link to the tutorial forum for installation instructions. Yes, i'm feeling very lazy at the moment.

woo! 2 releases in one day!
The Sa version is now officially out, and you may download it here:
Read the readme.
I also have some extra goodies for the Sa version including:
-body template for creating paintjobs
-a working sample paintjob that i made quickly (import your image over mine, then simply add the txd to the img - done)
-the max file, in 3ds max 7 format, with textures. the model is ready-to-export if you have kam's maxscripts installed (you will need them). You will also need to extract the collision file from the released version of the vehicle.
Edit: i caught it pretty fast, so i don't think too many people were affected, but i tweaked the materials settings for the body (SA), to make it somewhat less reflective. if your escalade is bright and/or shiny, re-download it (link is the same). people who got the max model will want to make the following changes to material 1 on the chassis:
-change specular from 75 to 55
-reflection/blend from 0.35 to 0.2
Also a word on the max model: change the export scale from 1.0 to 0.029 to get the model the same scale as I have.
I didn't quite get a chance to fix the vc version yet, i'll edit/bump the topic when i do though.
Significant differences between the sa/vc versions:
-SA has a higher resolution body texture, plus the textures are mipmapped
-VC has a damaged version of the body texture (the paintjob system in SA means only one body texture can be used for normal and damaged pieces)
-Different material settings to take advantage of each games capabilities. VC has better lighting (since it doesn't flicker, nor is it too overblown) but SA allows for more advanced texturing and reflection systems
-Various game-specific objects, naming conventions, hierarchy tweaks and upgrade pieces
-VC allows for more detailed collision options (note the rear glass that damages and taillights that go off)
