doubts components
« on: June 02, 2011, 04:09:10 am »
heard many versions, many opinions on many servers.
but now I am here, with experienced racers
my question is whether different tires cause any effect on vehicle performance?
offroad / virtual / atomic /mega (just change the image?)
the hydraulics cause some side effects depending on the handling of the car?
example: cars lowriders+hydraulics more drift?
the drift in 4X4 vehicles (sultan, comet, euros, tourism, infernus) is called "Powerslide" but with the help of nitro create "drifts of great strength."

I like his views on whether they have any experience or information.

I don't think so that San Andreas enginge can handle any tires' difference in perfomance. Also i don't feel it in-game.
About hydraulics... I never used it often but from what I remember it wasn't changing much the drift perfomance for example. Lowriders are itself not stable.
And yeah, for example infernus the more with nitro is drifting on a larger scale but i doubt it is "good" in drifting. The speed is making you think it's much better.

I doubt wheels do change anything, coz all data about cars grip are in 'handling.cfg' and 'surface.dat'.

Hydraulics can decrease acceleration.
For example:
-car without hydraulics just accelerate.
-car with hydraulics must 'rise' a bit before it accelerate, that makes you lose like 0.2 to 0.5 second in acceleration.

Powerslide + nitro?
Nitro is in-game script that increase acceleration a bit. Nitro also, in my opinion, makes a lot worse grip. That can feel like 'drift' but for drift would use some RWD cars with big power. (Sabre, Super GT, Bullet, Banshee, Cheetah, Hotring etc...)

PLEASE, IGNORE ALL MY SPELLING MISTAKES AND OTHER TYPOS True racing fans enjoy horsepower in ANY form

I have some years playing SAMP. Always use virtual tires ... I can really feel a difference as compared to other offroad [(nitro + drift infernus) its front adhesions is less]. But if a and a record where the data changes and I have no doubts.
The hydraulics, meet up with Mad Max mentioned that the acceleration is affected (infernus), but their use improves cornering performance? a comparison with the "Slamvan"(which do hydraulics fold stronger).

super GT is hard for drift but awesome u.u
to be honest .. the infernus can drift but it is easy to be a 4X4

thanks for your comments
