Is the stabilization device that I used in my car allowed?

Technically no. I'll just delete it or you can edit the scene if you want :D

I removed it, is there actually any legal stabilization device.

Hmm. That's interesting question - is any legal stabilization device used in real rally car? :lol:

I'll check the power which is the rule everyone seems to keep breaking, but otherwise, I assume not.

Rally cars do have a sort of way to stabilize, by using the gyro effects of the wheels in the air, by steering right in the air they can rotate left and vice versa. That doesn't work in Algodoo but you can still use the engine and brakes to tilt the car backward and forward :lol:

I've update my entry a little bit. Cosmetic only.

BTW, my track record is 123

I'd like to join, but I can't even make the cool textures and shape. Can I use the non-textured, unrealistic shape but working car?

Well, it says CVT is allowed, but no. you could make a cvt controlled by the driver, so when the engine rpm gets to a certain point you can just steepen the ratio manually ;)

I'll change it, but I think that a manual CVT would kill almost every positive quality of a CVT.

That's good, but the dashboard is even better (even though it doesn't exactly work at long distances from [0,0] :lol: )

Are thrusters allowed if they aren't used for downforce?

I assume things that are not stated in the rules are allowed, so I'm going to use them.
Is upforce from thrusters subtracted from weight?

Technically, this would provide no benefit because if you made the car "lighter" with thrusters, this would reduce the amount of power you could legally use. Technically the weight would only be subtracted upwards which means a 1000kg car with 500kg of upwards force would only be able to use a 125 hp engine and the acceleration would be correspondingly slower :think:

I wanted to use thrusters to stabilize the car but now I see it won't change the weight or speed of the car.
