Traction, how do you get more?
Even on low HP cars, its very easy to spin tires. What values do you edit to raise traction in the tires? I guess I could raise their mass but thats not right.

Our tire model uses the pacejka formula. For more info, see:

This system is extremely detailed, but unfortunately difficult to tweak (you've got a few dozen coefficients to adjust). I'll give you a shortcut, though: to have cars spin out less, increase the b2 value in the tire-rear section of the .car file.

Another reminder that we need a good Pacejka editor....
