I made an improved version of my previous engine.
Nxdt kindly gave me a tip to use circles instead of gears as a transmission.
And his idea worked perfectly.

Together with a more powerful engine the car now goes 6.9 m/s.
I even managed to get 7.1 m/s, which for me is a huge accomplisment.

This car can climb hills of 6 degrees with a speed of 3.0 m/s, while my previous one only managed a speed of 1.4 m/s. So, that's a huge improvement.
Sadly it still can't climb a hill of 7 degrees. Sure it is possible with enough pre-build speed, but I am only satisfied when it can do a hill start on that angle.
A hill start on a 6 degree hill is still possible with this car, feel free to try!!!
There is a test hill on the right. Delete the testhill if you want to reach the topspeed.

The car is still ugly, I know, but in my eyes the functionality goes before looks.
So, don't rate down because of the looks!!!

1 = Engine stop
2 = Idle
3 = Normal speed
4 = Extra fast/turbo
5 = Clutch
6 = Slow acceleration, Low speed, Low power, High rad/s
7 = Fast acceleration, High speed, High power, Low rad/s
Left/Right = Starter
Down = Brake

Idle: 9-12 rad/s (while driving: 0 rad/s)
Normal: 65-70 rad/s (while driving: 56-60 rad/s @ 6.4 m/s)
Extra fast/turbo: 73-78 rad/s (while driving: 56-61 rad/s @ 6.9 m/s)
Weight of car: 62 kg

I tested how much torque the engine has.
A lot of torque I think for a one cilinder engine.
The car can easily tow 100 kg (2x it's own weight) to a top speed of 6.6 m/s @ 56 rad/s.
It even managed to pull 1000 kg without stalling (on the fast acceleration mode, thus with the strong clutch),
it accelerates slow but it goes.
With 1000 kg as extra weight the top speed is 6.3 m/s (it takes a lot of time to get to that speed).

Can someone make a power test or something, so I can see how much Horse power and torque the engine really has? Because my tests aren't good enough in my eyes.
I want to know the real numbers.

Please rate and comment :tup: !!!

And hey, i called Altse and Coolcars those things because they rated 1 on the scene for no reason. How would you like if i would rate 1 on this and say:

''If there were only positive comments and ratings, then This would be a fairy tale.''

Doesn't that sound very stupid?
So that's why i called them the things i did. I did not do it for no reason really.

And this is nice, i can't do better myself. :P
