Experimental Wider Axles 1.21

Some wider axles to accommodate larger tires

  1. nachtstiel
    Here is a video showcasing the widened suspension (I need to make an updated video):

    This mod now includes modded suspension for the DSC Scarab, IYB Track Toy, Compact Buggy, and the Long Pigeon You will need to download the mods in the links below in order to see them in-game. Thank you to DrowsySam, IYB, DutchyGamer, and Snowmaster for letting me tinker with them!

    Tired of having your tire size limited by your vehicle's body or frame? Tired of flipping over during sharp cornering? Can't quite span that crevice?
    Well, take a look at this set of axles!
    With these, you will no longer be held back by such silly things as clearance issues. Go wild with your tire sizes!

    What's that? You recently bought 100-inch tires, but you can't fit them on your vehicle? Well, now you can!
    Just look at that clearance! The sky is the limit on your tire size, now!

    You don't want to be like this guy, do you?

    Then get these axles today, and quit rubbing your frame with your tires!

    And just when you thought life couldn't get any better, life gives you wider axels for the D-series!
    What's that? You say that the independent front suspension is not an axle?
    I say, who cares?
    Just look at that amazing beast!

    What's that? There's not enough ground clearance? How does three more feet sound?

    That's right! Now you no longer have to worry about such trivial things as traffic jams when you install some long travel coilovers!

    Current axles / suspensions available:
    • Live axle suspensions
      • The axle wrap issue is almost fixed
    • 428 Cobra Jet Engine
      • I know it is not suspension, but it makes a big difference in performance with larger tires.
    • Front:
      • Off-Road Independent Suspension
        • Long-Travel by default
      • Double Wishbone Independent Suspension
        • .7m wider
        • 1.8m wider
    • Rear:
      • Standard Live Axle suspension
      • 3-Link Live Axle suspension (No more axle wrapping with larger tires!) For real this time!
        • Long-Travel and Standard Coilovers
      • 4-Link Live Axle Suspension
        • .7m wider
        • 1.8m wider
    • Engine:
      • 428 Cobra Jet
    • Front:
      • Off-Road Independent Suspension
        • Long-Travel by default
    • Rear:
      • Standard Live Axle suspension
      • 3-Link Live Axle suspension
        • Long-Travel and Standard Coilovers
    The Bolide Required a lot of configuring to strengthen the body to handle the longer suspension arms. Because of this, if you wish to add the suspension after loading the base bolide, you will need to first select the Wide Chassis. Also includes brakes for taller tires.

    • Front Suspension
    • Rear suspension
    • Front Axle
      • Steering angle is too small
    • Rear Axle

    • Front Suspension
    • Rear Suspension
    • Mk IV Golf Engine and other parts
      • The engine in this mod is the AWP engine
      • Accurate weight, power curve, tires, and suspension values
      • Driving experience based on my own unmodified car
    • Front 4 Wheel Suspension
    • Rear Leaf Spring Suspension
    • Rear 3 Link Suspension
    • Independent Rear Suspension
    • Independent Front Suspension
    • Independent Rear Suspension

      That is kind of out of the scope of the mod, but this is turning into a mod pack more than just focusing on suspension anyway

      I think those will be next on my list. I generally do not drive those, so I forget to try them.

    This is great, and I love the detailed showcase video. I feel like someone needs to make a cinematic trailer now.

    The 'Wide 48 inch' config doesn't seem wide any more, however.

      Please post what configs you were using in the forum post. I have not been able to replicate the issue on my end.

    thats great!
    What about wide 3 links suspension for the front?
  10. Malamo999
    Version: 1.5.2
    Love this. The new D-Series Wide 48" config breaks on spawn, however. Edit: this seems to be due to the rear 'wide 4-link live axle'.

      It is. I tried to get the update in before the weekend, but I couldn't quite work fast enough. It will work as soon as the update is approved.
