Custom built, high performance offroad truck

    IF YOUR STEERING DOES NOT WORK, YOU MUST UPDATE YOUR GAME. THE STEERING BOX USES THE NEW TORSIONHYDROS ADDED IN 0.14 AND WILL NOT WORK WITH OLDER VERSIONS

    PLEASE STOP ASKING FOR A 4WD VERSION.
    It's not going to happen. The truck was designed from the start to be RWD, as most real life prerunners are. To correctly convert it to 4WD would require significant reworking of the chassis and front suspension, which I nor James are willing to do.


    The LKS Prerunner is a high performance off-road truck, the purpose of which is originally to run a course ahead of the actual race truck as a scout for the race team. It has evolved into it's own brand of recreational and race vehicle with capabilities matching it's trophy truck cousins.

    Features

    -100% Custom mesh and Jbeam (besides seats and steering wheel, which are standard BeamNG assets)
    -4 configs (plus variants) tuned for optimal performance on 4 specific maps
    - Long travel 4 link, trailing arm rear suspension and twin I-beam front suspension
    -6.0L V8 engine with more than 600bhp
    -Animated interior with working GPS and EFI tuner
    -A handful of optional parts
    -Skin support

    Modding
    Please refrain from re-uploading the entire mod, but feel free to release mods for this so long as you release only what you modify/create.
    Clarification: This does not include using this truck as a basis for a new mod, especially slapping a mesh onto it. Skins, addon parts, configs etc is the sort of thing we allow as well as some necessary modification of the original files to make your mod (adding slots etc)
    We also ask that you do not make "lazy" mods, like adding 4WD without correctly modifying the mesh and jbeam to support this, or adding a million superchargers to the engine.

    If you have any issues please let me know.

    It's great and works well, however it is auto only.

    In my opinion the automatic transmissions are broken (When I shift from low to 2 the vehicle wont shift unless it wants to) meaning driving the car is allot of wheel spin, throttle feathering and spinning out so the transmission derps between gears which is not the fault of the mod however

    Adding a manual version of the same transmission or just something to make it drivable would be amazing and will update to 5 starts if it does get a manual. (poke me if I don't as I don't always play)

    Quite a wonderful mod, only issue is the engine sound, and that the backend seems to have a very high wheelspint hat makes it hard to control. Not saying that a 4WD should be featured as RWD cars do have stability.

    Also for those who mention that the LKS Prerunner is indestructible around the Endurodrome... I beg to differ. It has a weakness and that's rollover that can seriously kill the trophy truck and end its run altogether. I tested it myself and it went down rather easily. Nothing is invincible around the Endurodrome, hint hint.

    Great mod! Im just wondering if there will be a sound update? After the game update the engine sounds pretty awful.

    The offroad monster that BeamNG always needed. Fantastic work and very fun to drive with a wheel set-up.

    Wow, everything is textured, everything has animation, groundbreaking, this is so far the most fun, non vanilla car, this could be official!

    The type of car I wished for, but even better. Outstanding work. Drives like I imagined. Thank you!
    Would it be possible to let the suspension struts collide with the terrain?

    As much as I like the mod, its Imo, near impossible to drive. Its a exellent offroader and goes over hills and bumps no problem but as soon as you hit the gas its constant struggling to keep it in a straight line even if I feather the throttle. I havent even been able to do a top speed run because how hard it is to correct it.

    I like the style of the mod, But honestly it feels weird Driving on a desert map and not being able to go 100+ because im constantly correcting it.
    100% would like AWD! its to difficult to control on any terrain if you don't have the setup.
