I need to do updates to this as new game versions have come and I have learned more stuff, it is just that finding time part that need to figure out...
Even a Wookie can drift this thing.
Original drift rig gets better!
New engine tune, based on real world variant of ETK437 engine.
T75 Drift with supercharger has 916hp / 4424Nm
T75 ETK437 has no supercharger 634hp / 3172Nm
Custom vehicle controller LUA which adds new transmission modes, you can select winter mode that sets 2nd gear to be lowest gear, also you are no longer limited to 2 selectable gears with automatic, select any gear from 5 to 1 to be highest gear automatic box will shift to.
Currently mod adds selectable parts to all Semis:
-New turbocharger "ETK437" with torque curve based on real world engine
-Supercharger to mod slot for that extra drift
-Automatic transmission with custom LUA logic (shift pattern RND54321W)
-More realistic ratio locking rear axles "Auto locking"
-Two premade configs, Drift and ETK437, latter is for pulling trailer, but can drift too
Surely I have more plans and certainly I'm not going to tell you about them, yet ;-)
Any issues, please, post on discussion tab so I can fix them.
Remove old version t-drifter.zip from your mods folder, earth might stop rotating if you have new and old in there!
Drag and drop this new version to your mods folder.
Lock diffs with ALT+D or use UI, spool up turbo, have lots of sideways fun!
Recommended map, Trial Mountain, Hirochi, Glass view mountain (hanging out those rearmost wheels over the edge of cliff, Cinamatic!) or whatever you prefer.
Plans for the future:
-Need to make new pic for ETK473 config
-Better implementation of dual charging setup, current one is more of a hack
-Graphical stuff for the automatic shifter, supercharger etc.
-Drift show things like lights
This mod adds new config, Automatic transmission, supercharger in addition to T400 turbo, new locking rear axles.
Drag zip to Documents\BeamNG.drive\mods\
Load map of your choice, choose Drift variant with pic that is below also.
Press Alt+D to lock diffs for best drifting experience, shift to Drive, have lot of fun.
Supercharged race motor:
With T400 turbo 1098hp / 4621Nm / 3408 lbf-ft
With T300 turbo 870hp / 3574Nm / 2636 lbf-ft
Top speed 154kph / 96Mph it is made for drifting, not for high speed records
If anyone wants to make shifter stalk for automatic or supercharger model, that would be nice addition.
With new game update I will update this to have gear pattern of RND54321W, but currently this has only RND21 so that it will not break the UI.
Thanks to Torsion for pointing out my stupid mistake and making this to show up in car selector.
I will retune for 0.9 so stay tuned ;-)
Old video about custom automatic modes, there is quite bit of changes done after that:
