Hy,

You can find the information you need about adding a car in this part of the website: http://vdrift.net/faqman/index.php?op=view&t=14

There are also a few other posts about it in the development forum, you can search for them.

The basic idea is that you build a car/bike out of triangles. If the car/bike is finished you can export it with the export script to the joe format.
Then it can be used ingame.
If you need help after reading you can always come onto IRC.

Hmmm, I'm not quite sure if Vamos can handle motorcycles, there are a good bit of physical differences between cars and bikes, especially balance. Even if you did get a bike into VDrift, it wouldn't stay up around a turn, because there's no helper code there to keep the bike balanced.

Yes, any kind of ATV should be possible, as far as I know anything with 4 wheels should be easily possible to set up. Good luck with Blender...search the web for tutorials, that's the best way to get started...or buy one of the official Blender books, that helps too Smile
