Re: Mimicing the attributes of real-world suspension

The rear design is somewhat excessive for what it offers. The wheel has some lateral play due to the springs as well, and that can become an issue in technical spots. I'm afraid the front is gonna give you trouble either way you look at it. There simply isn't enough support for it to work properly, ...

Re: Suspension Design 104

I did try a linkage nearly identical to the TRX250R used in conjunction with a direct-mount shock on the rear to try and reduce bottom out. The link was largely unused until the majority of the travel was used up, at which point the shock pressure came on like a lightswitch. It was hard to bottom ou...

Found rebound adjustment!

While going through some ideas, I noticed that a lower level shock has a great deal more rebound than a higher level shock. When 2 or more different level shocks are combined on the same arm, it can be super effective at tuning. http://dreamcarracing.com/?carid=71813 Try using different shock upgrad...

You mean like the Honda Powersports Pro-Link? The TRX250R comes to mind. Just sold one a few weeks back.

Re: In-depth engines

RoKo0, if you want me to send some audio files, let me know. I have a V4 recording ready to go (and it sounds sexy as hell) and can get the twin 2-stroke recorded fairly quickly. It won't hurt my feelings if you don't use them, I just want to help with DCR3D.

Re: Mimicing the attributes of real-world suspension

Touching on the topic of adding a new part, I think there should be some additional realism added, but not too much. More suspension tuning and a more demand on chassis geometry while also allowing the minimum length on parts to go away. Those 3 combined would be game changers.

Re: Mimicing the attributes of real-world suspension

Both I and Xgage1 can. Double wishbone (I'll refer to that as A-arm) setups are good if you're manipulating leverage ratios, but it's largely useless in this game. I've found a few places where I could work in a way to use it, but nowhere where it was actually beneficial. I never actually use any of...

Mimicing the attributes of real-world suspension

I've put a good bit of time into actually designing suspension and trying to focus on leverage ratios, rising rates, and variable rates, as well as how they pertain to balance, control, and bottom-out resistance. Applying my experience from racing is somewhat of a challenge since there is only one a...
