    It might be worth asking the devs how they work on the ETK 800.

    I'm guessing here (I'm a Motorsport Engineering student but I've never even attempted to make a mod / write any code for BeamNG) but are the electronic locking differentials tied to the Electronic Stability Control system (could test the ETK800 on rollers to find out. I'll try shortly)? I do know that the TCS, ESC, throttle, differentials and even gearbox & transfer case are all electronically controlled as part of the Terrain Response system on the real Defender.

    The diff system might as well be related to the traction control, I could try to check how exactly it locks when I have time

    for the silver rim in mid-range trim in defender doesn't need to be so shiny and make them like this ( upper pic ). Also maybe consideration for more defender rims ( pics below )?

    Sorry but I also couldn't figure out how it works and I have completely no idea what locks the diff... The locking diff is a mystery to me, maybe someone with experience could help

    I love this mod! I am a huge Land Rover fan and this is a very accurate model! Is there any hope of getting a 90 two-door? It's all the same, but it needs longer doors and a shorter wheelbase!
    I would also love the option for offroad tires on the 18" wheels in the future!

    Well, in game there is 2 types of auto locking diffs: the electronically locking, that usually simply brakes the slipping wheel, so the torque is sent to the other wheel, and the Sport diff, which uses a different controller and actually locks the diff itself if a wheel slips, not using the brakes.

    Then this car should be actually using the sport one. If you know how it works, you could maybe help with the mod

    The orbit camera is a bit close, but otherwise, I really like this!

    So I have been really hard at work today, for what is probably one of the best updateS in terms of user-requested items...and it's now live! :)

    There is more in the pipeline, but I prefer to release this bunch and then keep finishing stuff, so there is fresh things already available.

    Here are the edited Differential files. Not only I added the Active Locking Front and Rear differentials (using the code from ETK K's Sport diffs), but also fixed the rear LSD being a open diff.

    Didn't test tho, since I have a University test right now

    Thank you to anyone that helped in making electronically locking differentials and fixing, I'm currently trying to finish adding traction control to every config

    You should press "O" and air suspension would work
    --- Post updated ---
    Air suspension only works in higher trims like 'P400' or above :)

    Also, a drag config is coming, just have to add more performance parts to it and try to increase it's performance :)
