Make car a bit lower

Discussion in 'Racer Problems & Fixes' started by twister77, Aug 13, 2010.

  1. I am trying to figure out how to make a car lower to the ground. I wanted to change some fancy big wheels on one of the cars with something more "normal". As these replacement wheels are bit smaller, once I put them on the car there is a lot of space left around the new wheels inside the wheel arches. So, if I could make the body of the car a little bit lower, that would fix the extra space problem. So, if somebody could tell me what needs to be adjusted in order to make a car closer to the ground, that would be appreciated. Thanks..
     
  2. On both the front and rear suspension, change the y value!

    Decreasing the restlen of the suspension will do it, too - that way the suspension stays mounted at the same spot, you're just shortening it.


    That is, car.ini susp_front.restlen and susp_rear.restlen

    You might have to change the minlen as well, also decreasing it. Otherwise it hits the bump stops.

    And you could always rescale those wheels if you'd prefer. You could use Racer's modeler program for that :)
     
  5. Thank you guys, restlen adjustment did the trick..
     
  6. Well, might as well show what I was working on. I never personally liked the look of the original wheels on the Seat (plus brake pads were spinning together with the rims!!), so I wanted to change it. Of course, credit goes first to people that created the Seat and then to AMGfan as I "borrowed" wheels from one of his cars for my custom mod..
