Doesn't surprise me. I learned the hard way that no matter how much power you have, even with a Torsen and sticky tires, you simply do not race a stock Audi A4 Quattro in the rain. The tools who drive these know that this is their only chance to show off, and they do so. Prodigiously.

Ok, I don't feel quite so bad about my perceived lack of torque anymore.

Here, just stick this in the main loop:

do

magic
} while (wheelslip==1);
There. C is supposed to be freakin' magic, so you just need the right library and this will work.

Meh, I like these tires. And it's still strong. People say they "suck" compared to something else, but they really aren't that bad. They were stickier when new, but they're not bad. And the wet grip is amazing.

Nice kill story,

I had one of my own last night too.

A beautiful turbo'ed Lexus sedan, blacked out with red Japanese writing that formed strip graphics all over the car. It was lowered an just beautiful.

He flew by me, and I heard the turbo sing. I pulled up along side him and let the blow off valve chatter a little.
It was on, we both spooled up the turbo's and hammered it. I left him behind.
I was shocked. But then again that looked like a heavy car. I guess he had more into Rice than power.

Depending which kit it had, could have ranged from 295whp up to 450whp on stock internals.

quattro is fun in the rain.

It can be useful in the dry too. e.g. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IzI2uciaNmY
