Scene tag

This is my most weirdly complicated scene maybe. It's just too epic 8)
It's not perfect, but the KERS works fairly well for what I thought it would work, and the engine has a LOT of strenght.
The fuel I've put in there is not much because there are 4 balls overlapped of different collideSet to make the fuel piping simpler. It's enough to make the F1 go the 100 m I want.
Anyways this is a little "vehicle" I used to adjust the KERS and engine to make them barely work, then I'll make some car with all this things and more maybe, and a track with brake signs and all that:D
If you don't want the 100m ruler with impact speed and time metering at the end, just turn the sim on and press J.
The controls are:
S to start the engine
UP to accelerate
SHIFT to TOGGLE clutch
DOWN to brake (see the diagram) (you'll have to disengage clutch manually)
B to use all the KERS's power. Don't worry about pressing it when it's unloaded, there's a ratchet that prevents that the KERS would load when it's unloaded or when you don't have more power there (Wheel AV > Flywheel AV)

Please rate and comment and tell me what was your max speed! (To see if the KERS and CVT (1 and 2) works better in your comp):D

Maybe this is full of bugs and errors, just TELL ME!

Overall, nice job! I only found one small bug, and that's when the car is moving fast, and then I press the down arrow key to stop it, some of the red "power balls" (or whatever they are called) come spitting out of the engine and land on the ground. Not a big deal, but I thought you would want to know about it.

Good job! :tup:
So cool!:D
Well done :tup: :tup:
Finally!!! You did it! I saw ,,eco" sight on the engine, but i don't think that formula can have economic engine... If you know what i mean... its a race car.Where is gears and what is that think left of engine??? One more question - why Formula? Why not a simple car with 5 Gears and all that stuff?

vaidas - because the car is what comes now. It's just a testcar to tune the KERS. You know, if I would just upload the car I can be a lot of time without even making something on Algobox. I thougt it was better to make separatedly all the parts and test them.
Anyways what's better: one scene each year or different tests of what the final scene will be? And an f1 doesn't need any gears because they already have a CVT. Like any electric car, shifting gears is a waste of time if you can afford something else.
