    Rear Engined V8 Pigeon - just a stupid idea I had to execute

    Read more about this resource...



    The four-wheeled Pigeon addon is now avaible at the bottom of this post. Please read the last lines of text before downloading.

    This is a Pigeon with a rear mounted V8, somewhat inspired by the Stubby Bob. The idea was to fit the Gavril Barstow's running gear into the Pigeon, and somehow it did happen. It's pretty fast in a straight line but thanks to a higher center of gravity and a shortened frame, it might not corner as well as a regular Pigeon. But who cares!

    This mod features;
    - shortened frame (for no reason)
    - V8 from a Gavril Barstow placed over the rear axle of a Pigeon
    - rear suspension from a Gavril Barstow
    - radiator from a Gavril Barstow
    - rollcage
    - wheeliebar
    - a couple sets of widened Pigeon rear wheels

    Credits;

    @DOUGL4S1 - the original idea https://www.beamng.com/threads/vehicle-suggestions-see-first-post.79/page-218#post-464988
    BeamNG - the original Pigeon and Barstow parts
    @machine - modeling, jbeam work
    @NinetyNine! - helping with the configs, making the config previews
    random idiots - testing

    PLEASE NOTE THAT THE REAR AXLE IS A BIT WEAK. YOU HAVE TO BE A BIT CAREFUL WITH HARD LAUNCHES WITH THE STAGE 3 AND STAGE 4 DRAGSTERS TO NOT TO BREAK THE DRIVESHAFT AND REAR SUSPENSION. This will hopefully be fixed at a later update. Using only open diff is also recommended for easier control.

    Also, please note that this is still a somewhat WIP and not a 100% finished mod.

    Probably gonna continue adding some stuff to this mod at some point, but right now I want to focus on my other mods.

    I think it can be possible to make a very small V8 that can fit into the Pigeon's engine bay, like a 1.0 (or a bit lower displacement) V8? I wish I could do that.

    It might sound like a fun idea but it's not really realistic. Well, there are miniature V8's but idk if you can really find a torquecurve for one.

    Maybe you can make a four wheel version or possibly make it compatible with another four wheeler pigeon mod.

    Excuse me? Could you try to describe your problem better. It seems to work for everyone else so far, so just try clearing the cache.

    I might ask the author of the 4 wheel Pigeon if I could "combine" our mods to make a 4 wheeled one. I had that in mind myself as well, but it's not happening just yet. It sure could make this thing an interesting driving machine.

    Hello,

    I recently made a video about this vehicle (Rear Engined V8 Pigeon) and it would be great if you could feature it on the mod homepage. I am a small YouTuber and I sort of rely on developers featuring my videos.

    Video Link:



    Thanks,
    AppleCat
