    Yeah, but that takes a lot longer than clicking a button or two before spawning a car. Convenience is important in menus and GUIs.

    Will you use TTB axles? 4x4 and 4x2?

    we already have that in ar162b's mod, so it will probably be independent. plus, most prerunners/trophy trucks have independent suspension.

    So you're asking if the Pickup Prerunner is going to be a Prerunner or a trophy truck?

    It could be either one with the TTB axles @AR162B made for his D-Series mod. But for base game it would be Prerunner.

    Laughs in Fanatec steering wheel with h-pattern/SQ shifter, handbrake, and triple screens. The LKS pre-runner sucks to drive and doing a slight turn at 60mph WILL cause it to spin.
    All jokes aside, the sheer amount of wobbling input you have doesn't exactly sell the point that it isn't horrible to drive. You can't it even make it around the turn at 1:13 without it doing a 180 and dropping all speed. I can send it around Bajarama too, doesn't make it any good.

    I'm certainly no suspension expert, but watching trucks and buggies in the Baja, none of them are that awful and imprecise. What's the tune you have on it? I tried fiddling with the diff and tire pressure, which helped a bit, but something about the suspension seems way off compared to what I could find for normal real values.

    prerunners have nice seats, a generally nice interior, less power, and are heavier. race trucks are much more advanced, they have no nice interior, no doors, and are alot more powerful. prerunners are practical and sane, trophy trucks are extreme and can only be used as race trucks.

    I'm just joking around :p I'm under no impression the LKS Prerunners suspension (or tires) is any level of proffesionally tuned. The truck in the video is an unchanged "Bajarama" config.

    Think of it like two rednecks in a barn building a truck to hit whoops in vs a team of eggheads working for a major fab shop. All in good fun :D

    Pre-runner is a very open term, and often used by some people when talking about things like Class 8 racing trucks, which are essentially the predecessor to trophy trucks, with the big difference being that they ran stock chassis rails.

    Trophy trucks weren't really mainstream back in the D-Series era, and a TT D-Series would 100% be a separate car.

    IDK I like how it drives, oversteer is only a problem with bad throttle control, I presume it'd be easier with a manual transmission... Also laughs in dd1 and sadly only vr setup

    I want to yeet it through the sky like a missile. Will the suspension be better for jumps that what the d series already has in game?

    I'm not sure about the Bajarama setup, but the All-terrain variant had a tire pressure of like 11psi, when it should be more like 30 so the rims don't strike the ground. It also makes it spin slightly less.
    So is there any indication this will handle better than the LKS?
    Ehh. I took it to the test grid and tried to slalom through the pillars of the outer track at ~60mph. It shouldn't be hard for that truck to do, yet it consistently spun. Off the line or mashing the throttle having torque steer, sure. But a constant speed with a slight steering input shouldn't spin it. And that was after doing tuning to the best of my ability.
