Car physics

Car configurations are located in the Cars subfolder, each car has its own folder. For instance the Mercedes CL55 AMG configuration files are located in Cars/cl55amg. The most interesting file to edit is car.ini:

  • The first line contains the name of the car, for instance:
' Mercedes CL55 AMG Statistics
  • A bit farther (usually line 5), you can change the weight of the vehicle. This is very useful because less weight = faster acceleration. But too little weight = very hard to control car (tends to, hm, "fly" too much). A good value is around 300kg. Less than 200kg becomes really hard to handle:
  • Finally, you can get a better grip by increasing UnderBodyDragCoefficient:

There are many other parameters that can be edited, but these few ones should be enough to make all races (very) easy.
