    It's been a common issue for a bit of a while.

    Hey talented devs and modders, how about a Jolly looking thing? You know, the cute things with the fabric roofs and wicker seats.

    Love the car and variations. Now we just need a van or truck of the same era for Italy map!
    Maybe something like these cute little things?

    UPDATE: Fixed in 0.16.0.2

    The differential does not connected to the torsionReactorR causing the powertrain to look like this

    In the "autobello_differential_R.jbeam" The "Open Rear Differential" is connected to the "gearbox", all other differentials connected to "torsionReactorR"

    Would it be possible to add a rear sway bar to this car?
    I am driving with a force feedback wheel and pedals and the lack of a rear sway bar makes the car really hard to turn in nicely.
    I am fine with the default configuration not having a sway bar on the rear axle for beginners, as it makes the car oversteer very easily.
    But that kind of oversteer is the joy of driving a rear engined car fast. Unfortunately I cannot tune the suspension around the missing sway bar without compromising compliance, so it would be nice if a sway bar can be added.

    It uses torsion bar rear suspension, it is technically only a sway bar. A separate sway bar would be nice, if you could find somewhere to put it though.

    I remember some old guys racing a VW Beetle talking about how adding rear sway bar was sure way to end with a death trap. Piccolina of course is different from Beetle, but even it might reduce a body roll, it might actually cause snap oversteer.

    Try to overcome with it by tire pressures and tire selection.

    Although swaybars and torsion bars are both bars used in torsion, they are really not the same. A rear suspension which does not need a sway bar is a torsion beam, but the Piccolina uses trailing arms with torsion beams, which is not the same. The torsion bar acts as a spring, connecting the suspension of the wheel to the body. The sway bar connects the two wheels on one axle together, resisting roll. Also the sway bar is important in load transfers and this is why I cannot tune the suspension to make it turn in nicely.

    I guess it depends on your driving style.
    I already played with the tires, tire pressures, spring rates and damping settings. I can get it close to what I would want, but I have to run very high spring rates. Those high spring rates make the car very difficult to drive over bumps. A rear sway bar would help me fix the turn in during load transfers without having to run super high spring rates.

    It doesn't mean little child, clearly you don't speak Italian. Piccolina means 'Little One' which suits the car nicely, but 'Autobello' is cringy lol

    Just in case anyone is interested, I stumbled across this old video from Fiat in 1966. Note the 600 (a rough comparison to the Piccolina) and the 850 (a rough comparison to Wreckfest's Killerbee) undergoing increasingly complex crash testing procedures:



    How's it stack up the game experience?
