    Thanks.

    Some tuning settings likely need to be readjusted after all the powertrain updates.

    Looks like the transfer case gearing is causing it.

    It's not necessarily a bug, mind you. It's accurate powertrain simulation. "Cranking it all up" would likely cause issues in real life, too.

    it still happened with another test even without adjusting transfercase overdrive at all. just the other things were crankt.

    I'll limit the crankabilityâ„¢ of most params.

    Some settings are likely outdated since the introduction of torque reactions, or it could be caused by tire pressure.

    debug video for wobbles. turns out its the differential gearing. found out the max stable setting is actually 4.3:1 for front and rear. should prob set to max out at 4.25:1 for safety
    vid thing up whenev.

    New Beta Addon Packs uploaded. Main pack will be updated in the next few hours.

    Known issues (all will be fixed in the next beta update):

    - "Locked" transfercase causes rattles at idle. Merlin engine not affected, fix will be extended to the classic Ford engine.
    - Range of adjustment of differential gearing too broad, as reported by @gameboy3800. Final ratio will be reduced to prevent potential issues.
    - Engine mounts are still integral to the standard chassis mesh. Will cause clipping issues with the new engine model. 2nd gen. chassis not affected.
    - Texture for the updated transfer case needs improvements in a few areas.
    - Radiator hoses will be replaced by improved meshes by @ROCKGODBOSS.

    :)

    The Merlin is so awesome! It is a very good model and I am extremely impressed with the attention to detail with things like the screws at the base of the headers and the rocket covers! It all looks so good very well done. A suggestion would be to add the classic straight piped 8 pipe exhaust system. (I guess that's the name) that would be awesome. Very well done!:)

    Zoomie Headers are planned. Grave Digger 34 has straight collector Magnaflows in real life though.

    You can unwatch and subsequently watch a thread again, that usually fixes it.

    will the Merlin have a different sound or are the sounds so similar that it doesn't matter, never listened closely to a Merlin and whatever the base engine is so I wouldn't know
