    Inspired by the V8 powered class 1 buggies commonly found in desert racing, I present to you the Trackfab Unlimited.

    Designed for going through the desert at breakneck speeds, this buggy is equipped with more than 20 inches of suspension travel, big tires and a powerful V8 engine.

    Special thanks to Stoat Muldoon and to the MFD guys for testing.

    NOTE: This is a V8 powered RWD buggy with a lot of suspension travel. It requires some finesse while driving, especially on asphalt. If you are having difficulties, make sure to use the "Spec" variants, that come with a lot less horsepower, and to try to stay on dirt as much as possibly, as it is more forgiving and makes better use of the suspension.

    The suspension on this thing is quite fun to watch. I did some tweaks to the suspension set up and it handles small bumps like a dream as well as larger jumps. I've seen some complaining about nose dives and to be honest I only experience them when I floor it off of a short, steep take off. I've seen videos of real class 1 buggies and even trophy trucks nose diving during races. If you ask me, this thing handles very realistically for what it's supposed to be. You can even control your throttle on the take off of a jump in a way that prevents a good amount of nose diving. Not really meant to be flung off of massive jumps at full speed.

      Thanks for the review.

      What kind of tweaks did you make to the suspension?

    I thought this would end up being a better version of the JL prerunner (that can take turns without tumbling into oblivion), and although it takes turns nicely, it cannot handle even the smallest jumps, as it is extremely noseheavy. I'm not sure if this is realistic or not but it bugs me that it is advertized to be able to jump but it cannot handle even a slightly above average speed bump. The suspension works brilliantly though so I'll give you props for that.

      I suspect you're playing on the WCUSA dirt track? It has very steep kickers, which cause the suspension to compress very harshly. As said on the forum thread, this is an issue I've been investigating and am trying to fix in a way that doesn't cause issues in other situations.

      I doubt it's a nose heaviness thing since it has a 36-64 weight distribution.

      As for your mention that it cannot handle a slightly above average speed bump, that is a bit exaggerated. It's one of the few cars that I know that can go through the fairly tall speed bump tests on grid-map at more than 100kph without any damage.

      I recommend giving it a try on Bajarama, which has jumps with smoother transitions, as well as runnertyler's Desert Trails, where the only vehicle that gets even close to matching it's speed is the LKS Pre-Runner.

    Great mod I had a lot of fun with it. I would be nice if you could make of 4x4 version of a sender

    What a fantastic mod! however, on the trail variant I would like to see some sort of second spring rate adjustment or bump stops to keep the small bump compliance but stop it from bottoming out so easily (the rear especially).

      You've reviewed it like 2 hours too early.

      New version has been approved which should help a lot, using a dual damper setup with bypasses.

      I'll probably still try adding a dual spring rate setup at some point.

    That's the mod I was waiting for since BeamNG tech-demo :)
    It's a lot of fun but leans forward a bit too much in jumping version

      It should be much better in the next update. I discovered I had accidentally added some pro-dive geometry to the front suspension.
