Thats basically the BADDCaddy and I have CaddyCrasher who plays online trying out how to paint skins. Cheater22x also tried... but... well... regardless, the Imperial above is me improvising on some things he would like, and there are a few hiccups and rushes. I hope you take no offense in that

More revisions coming.

On another note, your 67 Ipmerial is making the rounds pretty quick. A new person who connected yesterday already had the car downloaded. I have been to lazy to put it on the hosting computer. Regardless, in one of those moments, the 67 Imp was replaced with a Hearse on my screen. So... those of us who didn't have the imperial downloaded were attacking it like it was a Hearse on Steriods. I thought it was my hearse file substituted....lol. Boy was I wrong....

Everyone wasted a car trying to attack the weak front on the hearse.

After it was over and the Hearse won the event, I asked what car had the winner chosen because it didn't behave like no hearse.

He said.... #67 Imperial.....



Its a sweet car....for online derbies.... Doesn't even cause a computer crash

I got two vertices/points/dots whatever you call them on the front of that Wagon that I can't locate and yet it stands out like a sore thumb. But its somewhat masked right now. But I have managed to get it to resemble a Taurus Wagon and its a good candidate for a Sedagon.

Haven't made a class file for it yet. Its a Six Cylinder Frontwheel drive, probably gutless, and I have no idea how strong these cars are on the front or rear. Also the Wreck picture is not a preran. It batters up pretty nice on its own.

Whats a WheelieWagon? I have a REDWAGON in this picture ... what are you talking about .

Funny enough, Its driven by an AI driver called WHEELIE.

It was crazy as an AI car and had similar problem to Class 41 cars with regards to the weight set at 500. With Class 41 I set it to 800 and it stabilized. With the Wheelie Wagon I had to add weight up to 1200 which is just a little heavier then class 8 Wagon at 1000.

The Wagon will still lift the front, but most fun is when it backs into something. Its prone to flipping when turning and any hit on the side and its flipping. However, it will reflip itself because one of those rear wheels hooks anything that comes close and grip well.

The Wheeelie Wagon is for my amusement. I really like it and think its sharp. Its not suited for Small Pinewood either verison, but it can get back into the derby if used there.

It is well suited for Killarney where it has room to move and it does fun things.

The Front End collapses too quickly and its usually elimated before other wagons, but not always.

Its not good on the Banger Track or the Figure8 tracks. Well, not in the hands of AI drivers.

if you want to make it normal, adjust the weight so it is centered towards the front of the car. Its really rear heavy, which is kind of cheating. If I were to do another wheelie car it would have LOTS of power and traction, rather than being rear heavy.

It looks like they left the factory plastic bumper on the taurus for the derby. After a few hits, they crack up and peices hang down off the car. Did you build that out of the OneTon bubble wagon?

I like the weight in the rear.. thats not cheating when its an official class file release LOL. I think I will leave as it is for now

Yes, I have used 1 tonnes bubble as a base for a few Wagons, some released, some not. I took the bumper off and did indeed have this attempt to look like the original plastic.

What I need now is a good painter .. LOL. I think I will finish this on the weekend.

I think the taurus wagon has a pretty strong rear. The fronts arent near as stout though. And they have a wheelbase of around 108 inches so they are midsize, and pretty darn strong for a compact class.

It really sucks that I read this NOW lol... I just spent today making a FrontWheeldrive class file with a Rearend weak and Front end strong... I will redo the class file... Its currently a Wagon that sucks.. and is hard to win with. Really fun against the Restub..
See that mean nasty Restub in the 3rd picture.. This Wagon ain't like that LOL
