Scorpion V8 Sandrail Buggy Mobile

23.9k BRuthless  2 months ago

Desert Racing at it's finest!

>>Desktop Version<<
If this version doesn't run on your device, try this:
>>Alternative Mobile Version<<
>>This might run better on lower end devices<<

The Scorpion V8 will take you into a new dimension of breathtaking OffRoad-Racing action in SimplePlanes!
With it's characteristic big bore shocks and dampers aswell as the independent front wheels and solid rear axle suspension this baby can take you anywhere you wanna go!


Features:
  • Gyroscopic Stability System (GSS)
  • Gyroscopic Air Control (GAC)
  • Beacon headlights
  • Working RPM-gauge
  • Working switch-panel
  • Working pedals and steering wheel
  • Realistic suspension with progressive springs
  • Reinforced suspension parts and floor panels
  • Simulated g-forces (headbobbing) in cockpit-view
  • Detailed body based on the Bone Smasher (collab between Mod and me)
  • Detailed engine model based on komuhachi's V8 Engine
  • Working hanging dice (by Mod)

Performance:

0-60 MPH: 2:50 seconds
60-0 MPH: 3 seconds
Topspeed: 240 MPH
Recommended maximum speed for offroad driving: 120 MPH

I advise to turn the Gyro off on flat and slightly bumpy ground for better steering response, but turn it on for medium to very bumpy surfaces with long jumps to increase driving stability and prevent the vehicle from flipping.


Controls:

Pitch = Forwards/Backwards
Roll = Left/Right
AG1 = Lights
AG2 = Activate Gyro Roll-Aircontrol (requires Gyro to be active)
AG3 = Activate Gyro Pitch-Aircontrol (requires Gyro to be active)
AG8 = Enable/Disable Gyro Stability- and Aircontrol

    I'm really glad I found this. I love this kind of buggy, and I love off-roading.

    @Sm10684 Phones have a lot less performance than PCs and in my opinion it's a lot easier to work on PC than on mobile. I could try to make this less performance-hungry, but it's going to cost looks and functions.
