PostSubject: [HELP] Cars go into Rev limiter instantly   Mon Nov 21, 2016 7:15 pm

Hi guys, I've come around a problem recently. I've stuck some crazy powerful engines into small, old cars and yes, I was bored Very Happy  Anyway, the cars do work perfectly fine, except for the engine, that bangs into the rev limiter instantly after accelerating. (I drive with automatic and keyboard) Could someone tell me why this happens? Sad

The obvious reason is a powerful engine in a lightweight car Laughing
- in *.eng file, try to increase the "EngineInertia" value (this usually does the trick) and reduce the "IdleRPMLogic" one
- use Tom's Engine Shop to reduce hp/torque at low/med revs

It probably needs a better gear box. If the gears are to short the car will hit the rev limiter Very Happy

I've used the gearbox from the same car that I took the engine from

GD is right, if the car is waay too lighter then you may have to use longer gears /final ratio Smile

Is this adjusted by Clutch torque /engage rate? scratch

As he mentioned he already changed the gearbox to the one from the donator car, its clutch torque. Often overseen in such swaps. A clutch designed for a 1000cc car will shortly cry for help if some 427 Detroit iron is engaged, before it dies in a cloud of smoke Wink Safest bet is to copy the whole [Driveline]-section to the new car.
Engage rate usually doesn't differ much over most cars.

Would be fun to see a video of these monsters............, they MUST be fast as hell!!!

forgot to mention, "Film at 11" is what news commercials would tell you all day and night to keep you watching their channel/sponsors...........
