Slicks on dirt = great!
« on: November 28, 2018, 04:47:29 AM »
Too great.  Almost 100% traction, can punch the throttle repeatedly with no ill effects. I see that Dx1 has been roughly halved in the MX tires.  Does this have something to do with the added knob/bulldozing lines at the bottom of the file?  Is there any explanation of these added lines and any other tire changes that have been made?  Trying to get a dirt track bike figured out, but the tire is kicking my ass right now.

You can increase knobsFactor to give more traction once the tyre is spinning up - this is why Dx1 is reduced.
Increasing bulldozingFactor gives more lateral grip when the tyre is sliding. So Dy1 can be reduced.
However! We are going to be changing the tyre code a bit so don't spend too much time tweaking at this stage.

And yes the SM tyres are too good on dirt currently

Don't. It's a trap you will only get out off scarred, in a few month, if ever. Trust me :p

The front end feels awesome! Too much rear traction though.
