    greetings all.

    it's been a while since I was last here, I am trying to find out some information on how to set the wheel placements for adding new cars.

    I read the tutorial info on racer page but it's really outdated because it refers to a "susp0" file which no longer exsists
    if anyone could point me to the right direction i'd be most greatful

    cheers from australia

    look in to a existing car and see how it works?

    Welcome back Ammods,
    The susp0 actually refers to a section in the car.ini file. The y= refers to the basic starting height of the susp.
    Z= is how you set the wheelbase. Then of course x= is for the tread or track width of the car.
    Look at the default car.ini to learn more about the structure.

    Conversions ARE welcome here for those that like them. Only people that don't appreciate the work somebody does don't!

    I made this short description to make it easier to tweak my wheels. You can use it too :)

    Code:
        x=[number] ;looking front it is how inward (> --- <)  the wheel is.
       y=[number]  ;looking front it is how high the wheel is.
       z=[number]   ;looking front it is the -O---O-- (how much space between the front and the back wheels)
