Would you like to see the Wentward's air suspension setup optional in more vehicles?

    While BeamNG.Drive is generally used for modifying cars to increase performance and handling, I have what I think is a great idea. We've seen several attempts at air suspension mods, but they all seem to stiffen the ride. However, in real life, luxury cars with air shocks are typically meant to make the ride much softer.

    With that in mind, I think it would be an interesting concept to see the floaty, pillow-soft air ride setup borrowed from the Wentward and made usable on other Beam vehicles. Some of us prefer to drive with awfully handling vehicles in the program and I believe it could make it more fun (and possibly even funny) to see how different vehicles drive with the Wentward's setup.

    What could go wrong with a Roamer or Grandpa's LeGran wafting all over the road?

    That's a good idea. You know, Burnside is a luxury marque of Gavril, sort of like Mercury/Lincoln is to Ford or Buick/Cadillac/Oldsmobile is to GM. Perhaps we could have Burnside badged versions of existing Gavril models with floaty air suspension and far too much chrome.

    I loved those suspension setups. I'm more of a comfort>performance type of person and when I watched the videos explaining those two, I fell in love with both systems and I'm sad the Bose didn't make it to the mainstream (especially since I have the same type of Lexus they tested it on- it would've been so much better with the Bose system)
