I took my cavalier wagon from my tutorial and ran it pretty hard. The back wheels lean, and the driver side rear wheel just drags.

It makes the tightest donuts I have ever seen though

This is one of my favourite PreRans. I can run this in the fullsize class and win. This car created the bounce effect I wanted and I used some of the class file to create similar characteristics for class46. The main difference being that the wagon above is frontwheel drive which is why I didn't use the file outright for the BrokenHomerCar.

Later I used the Cavalier Wagon as an AI car. Other then it drove aimlessly, it was near impossible to inflict Big damage on.

My $64 dollar question is .. how did you get the rear wheel to drag completely? I have been fascinated by that.

Really? I absolutely hate that car. Its completely undriveable. For looks only.

At the bottom of the class file there are settings for each wheel. Things like suspension settings, tire size, grip, ect. There is a setting for resistance, also. I just made the resistance really high so it drags easier than it turns.

Yeah!!! Its PERFECT!!! I have seen cars like that in derbies and the driver has a handful of trouble. And no they don't win. They probably hate the car while in it too. But that's why I like it. Because it can be so frustrating to drive. When I have it as a car, I never worry about what its doing. I just hope I hit something. Never try to aim to much, it will only result in disspointment. Its when you get down to the final two cars that things get really tough, especially if you blown the rad. There isn't any power to put out the other car and there is no steering ability to hit the other car at a weak point. So its all a matter of luck before your 5 to 7 minutes expire and the car overheats.

I understand you hating that car. I am happy you made it.
