Welcome again, hope you all enjoyed the first tutorial for creating vehicles in Truevision3D. I have now created a project to take the vehicle physics even further, with the introduction of the gearbox and Pizzayoyo’s PXME maps this project has a whole new angle.

Here is a complete project for you to have a look at. There is still much work and research to be done on creating the perfect driving simulation/game but here is a good place to start.

I hope you all enjoy and learn something from my many months researching this area of Truevision3D.
