    Independent rear suspension, means that each side (left and right) of the rear suspension moves on its own.

    Can we get fender flares for the rear fenders as well? And a front air dam would be nice

    well uh, front air dam should be there from the stock miramar.

    and rear flares for such shaped wheelarches wouldnt make sense at all. it would look wrong and be clipping all the time.

    It would be nice if you could add
    - racing seats
    - a fast engine comparable to the one in the top of the line K series
    - modern dash board (with digital dash and a 5 inch screen
    - head rests on rear seats
    - ETK 800 seats
    - sunroof
    - panoramic roof
    - tinted windows
    - safer miramar with modern crumple zones

    Thanks

    This is a car from the 1960's, all of what you literally just said doesn't make sense for something like this at all....

    One possibility to solve this would be to have "cut" rear quarters, that way you could fit fender flares enabling wider wheels;)

    Honestly there is nothing wrong with the handling. It just acts like any race spec live axle car.. utterly useless on anything other than a glass smooth track, and needing a careful throttle foot.

    You won't catch it with opposite lock alone, and it can have lift off oversteer, particularly at high speeds, high lateral G, and when the tail is already sliding. So lifting all the way off makes it worse. Just give it a dab of oppo and lift the throttle a tiny bit and there you go.

    I did have a try at driving it with the keyboard, and its virtually impossible. Changing the steering rack to standard and swapping the rear suspension for GTz spec helped a lot, and gave it that classic soft rear hard front british sportscar feel. It did cure the lift off oversteer, but you STILL have to be careful putting the power down on corner exit. However this could be worth a try if you are using a gamepad?

    On the subject of wheel arches, I do agree it needs an intermediate option, so how about some medium size box arches instead? Basically the same as the race spec ones, but without the vents, and only a couple of inches wider than stock.

    The solution is to learn to drive it. You don't floor it everywhere, you need to be careful. There is nothing wrong with the car, so there is no "solution" to it.
    And also, grammar. It's a thing.

    Sorry if I struck a nerve. There is no real solution apart from being careful with it, after all it's a very powerful car with a solid axle rear suspension and no traction/stability control.

    Screw solid axle. Time for a independent suspension swap.

    Apparently people keep forgetting that it's not a modern sports car, that's like, 2010 or something........ Does the Burnside Special handle like the ETK 800 series? Is the Moonhawk stable like the K series or the SBR? No. Like, what is it so hard to realize that you can't floor this car and expect it to stick to the road on a corner.

    Also, I think its worth pointing out that this is a GAME. A computer game isn't fun without any challenge to it. Computer games can be as unrealistic and easy as you want to make them. But why would you want that?
    Realistic games offer the same challenge that real life does, just without the financial, legal, and medical consequences of stuffing your REAL car into a tree.
    I spend an absolute fortune (by my standards anyway) on my real life car and motorbikes. For that reason and more, i back OFF when the back end starts to go loose. Okay, I love those moments when you get to be a bit cheeky, but the potential consequences are so serious that you just have to behave like an adult.

    I've never so much as kerbed a wheel on my real car, coz thats the way i LIKE it.

    I've bounced the miramar off the armco a hundred times today alone. I dump it in the kitty litter every couple of laps, I've spun it 360 degrees, caught it and carried on... and thats the way i LIKE IT.

    i know it must be challenging, but if i swap the engine it is less wobly over 120 kmh, if i make a tiny correction (and let go of the throttle) it will spin.

    i know its not a modern sports car. i just thougt maybe its a config fault i dunno

    and i can drive the moonhawk just fine with throttle control, but this car when it goes over 120 km/h its off the road no matter what i try
    screenshot_00023.png
    i ducked around in the tuning menu and changed a few things now it stable up to 220 kmh (still no fast corrections or you will be gone)

    I did explain this, and give a few specific suggestions on taming it.
    That is one of the things i enjoy about more realistic racing games.. you can apply real world knowledge to them, and get good results.
    but several people have told you now.. DONT just let go of the throttle!
