Mission: To test the new vehicle physics
Task: Drive a sedan with less than 4 wheels
Sedan performed somewhat as expected on 3 wheels. When only 1 back wheel was present the sedan would veer towards the one power wheel. Using a single front wheel the sedan failed to move at all (though it probably should, but with more veer toward the missing wheel)
Things get very interesting when you start using only two wheels.
Using only two back wheels is a great way to do doughnuts! The car goes into an uncontrollable left spin, leaving perfect circles of burnt rubber on the tarmac. Only thing is... it won't stop. Going into reverse, a higher gear setting, to neutral, cutting off the engine, hitting the brakes... nothing seems to stop it. I'm not sure how, but eventually it ceased. And I managed to hang onto my Crunchin Crisps.
Use only two front wheels and the real fun begins. The hang on for dear life and pray you don't fly off a cliff kind of fun. The car becomes possessed by the kind of character that made Stephen King famous. Simply stepping on the accelerator for a moment in first gear sends the sedan into a rampage of terror.
The car moved at great speed in seemingly random directions, obviously bent on my destruction and that of all bambi-kind. It was like a mad bull in a china shop with a floor like an ice flow. There is no terror in DayZ quite like it! It was pure non-frictional terror unleased!
Nothing short of a plunging headlong into a river would stop it (which is what eventually happened to me after 15 minutes of nail biting, gag-reflex controlling madness).
I am happy to report that drowning does kill this demonic entity. Oh holy are the waters of Chernarus!
