    Hey guys!

    It's a pretty easy questions I guess but I don't know the answer and wasn't able to find it on the net.

    So is it possible to put in a car without wheels!? As far as I remember the game crashed when something with the tire physics wasn't right or not in place...but maybe that's just a mistake I made!?
    Second thing is, am I able to use the "old" tire model for a car instead of the new one!? This would make things in term of conversion a lot easier, at least for the starting!

    THX in advance for all help or pointing in the right direction!

    Cheers :cool:

    You can use old tyre model (TBC files) in Dev Mode. You can make the switch via player.json file or ALT+T while beeing already on a track.

    Without wheels visual you mean? It has to have tires to move of course, but can't you just wipe out (or "//") the tire/rim and so on in the gen file?

    Nope...the game then crashes. I guess the mesh is mandatory.
    I've now used transparent materials, no shadows, no specular, nothing. So they simple aren't visible. This seams to work :cool:

    Maybe I should really add the reason for what I'll using this!?

    Kinda like the Pocket Bike mod for rF1 I used the helmet instance for the bike. However the wheels should be invisible and they are now.

    If it's possible: Simply Tag the wheels as "no render"... It's better for fps.

    I've set the tag and it worked...or let's say: At least there was no error message :D

    @dylbie & @emery

    I'm not into RC racing, But i just discovered something.

    As the video tittle says "first pitstop" :D It starts at 2:22min in the video. I guess the fuel tank last only a few minutes.



    And the the RC track... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rIEkFSE0eJU :). I guess i could some RC models at some point.

    Cool! We urgently need more tracks, maybe you could focus on those first!? :eek: I don't have the talent and knowhow (though my first track "worked" somehow, but it would be a very long way to go :()
