    Fuel efficiency testing results promising so far. 2 types of testing were performed, normal driving to replicate the irl Polish tests and harder to replicate the Czechoslovakian ones. Both are close enough to real life, they fit within the (pretty big) range of various official and unofficial results for this car. That was done for the 600, 650 and 650E versions so far. For later ones it's really hard to find the reliable source of info about the fuel economy, private unofficial testing tends to give significantly better results than the supposedly official stuff from Wikipedia and much better than the 650E, this needs further research as to when the fuel economy was silently improved, definitely it was before the addition of the catalytic converter.

    This weird inconsistency has been explained after we also noticed the same thing in game despite also no changes to the fuel economy on the carburetor side. The results are only better if you are driving quite hard, which is natural for such a slow car, but if you are driving 'normally' (aka really slow) they don't vary as much from the earlier versions. So we came to this conclusion:
    "With bigger weight it's harder to get higher in the RPM range when driving hard, so you are naturally driving in the more economical range. It explains why no official economy change was metioned."
    The best thing about this is there are no changes needed because this effect is caused by the car's weight which is already correct. So less work for me.

    Some configs have been tuned by Xupaun to drive better than before, especially the drift one is way better now. I decided to use this opportunity to slightly redesign the Toxic config, I made a quick modified widebody bumper for it, changed the wheels and tires, and added vent covers, it will have a new thumbnail and that will hopefully be the last change in the mod before release.

    They are not from Maluch Racer, they are fictional. (Failrace one is based on some really old video but I added stripes and the huge wind to it additionally) There is also the Cabrio Sport Tuned, which is a combination of Cabrio Sport from Maluch Racer and Cabrio Tuned from the old version of the mod. No other MR2 configs so far.

    About the handling, I have to point out something. This car is very light, very tail heavy and its wheel base is quite short. It will never be a easy car to drive, specially for guys playing on keyboard or Playstation/Xbox controllers. Steering inputs need to be really precise, so does the throttle control, since it snap oversteers like crazy.
    My suggestions are:
    *If you have my AWD pack, you can use the DSE Slot that come with is to get stability control, something that helps A LOT, at least until you understand better the car behavior.
    *If you don't play with steering wheels, this mod will help you greatly: https://www.beamng.com/threads/arcade-steering-mod.85494/
    *Don't go crazy with power. This is a sub one ton car, so 200 hp is more than enough to make it fast but keeping it drivable.

    I found an issue that makes it completely unplayable. The dankpods restoration says that it is considered a car when it should be "an car"

    What exactly do you mean by that? Using the indefinite article "an" would be grammatically incorrect in this case, since you only use it before a word that starts with a vowel (a, e, i, o, and u). The word "car" does not start with a vowel letter, so "a" is the correct indefinite article to use in this context.

    The only change to the description that I actually did was capitalizing the word "YouTuber". But what I actually forgot was capitalizing "DankPods" correctly. Regardless of the change, I have had no issues loading this particular configuration. Compare and contrast the description before and after the change if you are interested:

    It would be nice if version 2.0 included:
    Working front wipers
    3D glass breaking I do not know exactly what it is called
    Openable tailgate, door motor etc.

    That is how DankPods said it. He said it is officially "An Car"

    i was also kidding about the game being unplayable

    Oh, I see now. I haven't watched DankPods that much, so I apologize for failing to include that inside joke that he made to his Nugget. I am also sorry for taking that last part a bit too seriously, since I only woke up from my sleep less than 30 minutes ago.

    As a compromise, I have provided the updated DankPods descriptions that properly capitalizes "DankPods", as well as including the "an car" reference that he made for the restored Nugget. Here, I used single quotation marks around the phrase, since using double quotation marks would actually break the description in-game as a result of syntax.
