    Can't verify right now but most likely it shares the engines with the ETK 800, and the engine files should be in the common folder, if I remember correctly.

    The reverse gear in the K series is too low of a ratio, you have to dump the clutch from a higher RPM to get it rolling in reverse. (with real automatic transmission, hold in neutral, rev car, switch to reverse)

    I like how you added the 4 cylinder and 6 cylinder before the 8 (maybe 10) cylinder even though the engine bay is obviously screaming, "FILL ME UP!" Still an amazing car though, The ABS and ESC are phenomenal! This game has changed so much since I first started playing it in mid 2014.

    [Edit]
    There is also an issue with the front suspension, it randomly decides to pull to the left or right at speeds above ~70 mph it makes it really hard to drive at high speeds and you don't get the full potential of the vehicle.

    [Off Topic]
    One thing I really suggest is having 2 cars in the Techdemo and maybe the newest graphics and Gridmap. I have the full game but my friend only has the techdemo and looking at them, the demo doesn't really make him want to buy the game, there is parts on Gridmap that he used to be able to do in the pickup, but now there's only the Covet. I think this would make so many more people buy the full game.

    The one in the middle somewhat resembles a Volvo S90, did you notice?

    I have a 900Nm etk-800 and k-series in the pipes as I type this. Once it gets approved, be on the lookout for my High Power Car Pack

    The suspension for the K series is very week.

    Don't you think that the engine in the K-Series is too fragile? For example, if you crash 60+ mph, the engine will get damaged, totaling the car. But, if I crash the SBR4 at 60+ mph, it will still be "drivable". Just pointing out a bug to let you fix.

    The SBR4 is rear-engined.

    But, what if you slide it and it hits a wall at 60+ mph on its rear? It doesn't total. I might need to test that again.

    Yeah, it does not total. It still drives perfectly.

    sliding into a wall at "60" MPH isn't the same as going head on into a wall a 60 because it could just be 60 MPH of wheelspin and sliding kills a lot of momentum.

    then in most cases it would still end up being a side impact if you slid into the wall and there is also a difference in how the area around the engine deforms in a crash.

    Although I use a wheel making it not so much of a problem. I have noticed that the steering in the K series is easily deformed making it pull slightly to one side. I could see how this could be frustrating for gamepad/keyboard users.
