    This mod now includes modded suspension for the Scarab. You will need to download the mod here https://www.beamng.com/resources/dsc-scarab.15272/ in order to see it in game. Thank you to DrowsySam for letting me tinker with it!




    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!
    screenshot_2020-12-01_09-17-31.png
    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?
    screenshot_2020-12-02_00-17-58.png
    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:
    Hopper:
    • Live axle suspensions
      • The axle wrap issue is almost fixed
    D-series:
    • 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
    Roamer:
    • 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
    Pigeon:
    • Live Rear Axle
      • A little bit unstable, just install the Stronk driveshaft.
    • Wide front tire
      • To make up for not having a front end I can widen.
      • A bit janky, but it works.
    Wendover:
    • Front Suspension
      • It is a bit unstable with larger tires
      • relatively fragile
      • Fix coming soon-ish
    • Rear suspension
      • Spring rate and dampers need fine-tuning
    In the works:
    • D-Series
      • Mastering the rear 3-link axle so it doesn't spawn with deforms
      • Correcting 3-link axle mesh to match the new node structure.
      • Making the standard axle work.
    • Hopper
      • I'm pretty much ignoring the hopper until I can correct the burning clutch issue with wider tires. It functions well enough for now.
    • Sunburst
      • Super early, but it kind of works
        • Rear suspension is almost passable
        • Front suspension wiggles a whole lot. Almost like it's waving every time you reset it.
    • General
      • Configurations are to come soon.
    I plan on adding wide axles/suspension to other vehicles as well.

    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.

    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.

    love this mod but I noticed in the vehicle files there was a sunburst folder and the axles break when you put them on when will this be fixed/added?

      Author's Response
      Yes, this will be corrected. I neglected to remove it before uploading. I have a version that has kind of functional suspension that does not conflict with the base game.
