Realistic Steering GMod Car by meat pocket

After hours and hours of frustrating trial and error - of making complex wiremod systems that didn't work too well - of having the car unstable and hard to drive - to finally perfecting the realistic steering system.
Here it is - ugly as hell, and drives great. The wheels steer parallel to each other, just like a real car, without the entire axle turning. There is absolutely NO thruster help whatsoever in the steering - the wheels turn purely by wheel torque. Forward thrust is partly wheel and partly thruster, as it was very difficult to get the car to any good speed with wheel power (at too high torque, the wheels just spin). I did not use Phoenix wheels for the back because they tend to sink into the ground when they are going fast. The car does not have as much grip as I would like, but it still works pretty well. I guess it appeals to all you 'drift kiddies' out there. The tiresmoke was made with wiremod - if the car is sliding at a certain speed, two powerless smoke thrusters behind the rear wheels are activated. The car also has traction control, which makes it far easier to drive. The car goes in a straight line very easily, requiring very little correction, and it's probably even easier to drive than a simple thruster-steered car, and nearly as easy to drive as a buggy or a GMOW car.
