    Camber, toe, spring damping, could be a number of things.

    The rear suspension just... doesn't like to grip. It's a strange multilink-sort-of-double-wishbone-but-not-really-setup (it's the same setup a 240SX uses). It's designed to kinda bind, which isn't good, and it's just... mushy. The rear wheels aren't solidly located, they tend to want to jack, and there's a lot of snap oversteer from the rear suspension being dumb.

    Could it maybe be fixed with beam/node rigidity being altered, or is it purely down to the design of the suspension setup?

    I think the geometry is fairly doomed. I've made some strides in fixing some of the car-breaking problems, like the wheel folding sideways or under the car, but it still doesn't drive very well.

    Would it be possible to swap the sunburst rear suspension into the 200bx? I use the sunburst as a rwd vehicle and it works okay.

    Oh, and gabe, i know it is a little late for such design change, but why is it not liftback?
    tbh when i found out it has a regular trunk i got a little sad. I was looking forwards to the proper liftback hatch.

    It's just a small difference in how the tailgate is constructed. Especially not much of a difference in beamng as tailgates rarely come open, they usually just bend and get stuck in certain position.

    Is the 200BX in the Experimental yet? it looks awesome.. the rims remind me of the ones i had on my 96 Nissan Altima SE. the 240sx also used the same ones also. There is a plastic center cap.. will this be something that pops off like hubcaps? altimaAlloy.jpg

    Was the faulty suspension the cause of that?

    A non-dev posted a screenshot and that post was deleted. That's why that "This is for the devs only" post is there.

    Yeah, that's what I was referring to. Should've probably quoted it.
