Hey, speaking of Fords, not to rush you or anything, but is the F-150 with the Halo paintjob still planned?

My review on the volt:
We own one of these cars, so I decided to try this one. I can tell you that the real thing actually has pretty good acceleration, and sharp handling. It's a pretty fun, lightweight, and sporty car to drive.

This addon has got some of the worst tuning of any car I've ever played in MM2... it does 0-60 in slightly under one year, and handles very weirdly. It slides around like it has trays under the rear wheels, and the tires will produce smoke even while driving normally. And don't even think about going offroad with this thing, it will bounce around like it weighs as much as paper, with tires made out of bouncy balls. This doesn't apply to actually running into stuff though, because in reality it weighs about as much as a truck, and will plow pretty much anything out of its way. It doesn't even have an engine sound, which isn't completely accurate, since the real thing kicks the engine on under heavy acceleration (high RPMs).

At least it has a good model, looks exactly like a Volt. Models this detailed don't belong in MM2 though, the old game engine can't handle it very well, and the framerate takes a dip on even the best hardware.

Basically, this car is only good for screenshots. Not very fun to actually drive with.

The 0-60 time on the real car is 8.8 seconds which is what it is on my conversion. The poor handling is due to it having one gear since the real car has a CVT. The beta version had slightly better handling, but Franch88 tweaked it for release. I agree that the suspension could have been more forgiving. Accurately creating sounds for hybrids in MM2 is not possible since you have to either go with the electric motor or the combustion engine. Expect an update to this car in the current version of the Minor Update Patch very soon (June 2).

Anyway, here are three new previews
2012 Chrysler 300 SRT8
2002 BMW M Coupe
2000 BMW Z8

Well actually, it hits 60 at right about 12 seconds. I timed it. :P And the gearing has nothing to do with the handling; the axle, inertia/aerodynamic, and wheel settings are all messed up.

As for sounds, it may have been better to use regular engine sounds, since most people use a keyboard and drive like a maniac anyway. However, I guess the current silent sounds are better suited to the slow acceleration... simulates 1/3 throttle or something.

Also note that we arent all keyboard uses, and the car will handle differently with a different controller.

Well as promised my Minor Updates Patch has been updated. The updated tuning for the Volt is not final, but it is way better than before. Thank you dummiesboy for your critical feedback.

Also here are two new cars,

1988 BMW M5
2003 BMW M5

@Jelly you should get a dropbox :P, Direct links, no ads, etc. Mediafire is annoying imo. I'll await MM2X versions :)
