    I was wondering if a Nitro powered version of the rc cars would be available since we have electric. It would be awesome to see Nitro rc cars! I've owned a lot of them in my life and would love to see a few in Beamng!!!!!!!

    you could always add some nitro sounds to the existing rc cars.

    That's easy haha, Not all that exciting. You couldn't over rev and seize those motors up then. I did once on my Team Associated GT2 years back haha

    all you have to do is change the torque curves, the fuel type required, the sound, and change it from "electricMotor" to "combustionEngine". then fiddle with the idle rpm and all that stuff until it's right

    there is no pre-defined fuel in the game, you could set your engine to take "Avgas" and as long as your fuel tank is set to hold "Avgas", then it will work.
    you could even use water, or air, or dust, or of course nitromethane.

    just make sure your battery is changed from "mainBattery" or whatever it's called to "mainTank" and make sure the engine is pulling "nitro" from "mainTank" or whatever you choose to call either one.

    Actually there are pre-defined fuels in beamng. its in an lua somewhere. but yeah, fuel tank names are more simple if you wanna keep the same fuel type.

    you could add nitro rc cars with the proper fuel physics stuff but im honestly not sure about all of this.
    While we are talking about it id like to ask the devs as well.
    Does this all make a difference in how the engines heat up? I was looking for adding methanol fuel in beamng for a certain mod im working on but i dont know if working on a custom lua is worth it.

    you could probably right a new lua file with more in fuel types, but those are the ones that come with the game

    Dude for starters, you don't ask to have mods made here, you post progress of a mod you;re making. Secondly, I'm surprised the other forum users didn't say anything.
