Another idea i though would be really fun, and compliment the already visceral and destructive game play is trailer racing.  If you don't know what I'm talking about, just look it up on YouTube.  You tow a trailer behind you.  You can have various types from little pull behind campers to wacky creations.  They add another layer to the physics chaos and more destruction is always fun!

Bugbear would like to give us trailer races someday, they have done some testing.  :D

I'm thinking Bugbear will need to DNF your car once your trailer is de-hitch from car, so only players with a trailer still connected to car can finish race.

Trailer\ caravan races be a great why for Bugbear to show off their soft body damage model. :)

If not, give the tools to the community to achieve this if possible. I can imagine it being a lot of fun with the engine they've got. :D

Not possible at the minute,game only supports twin axles and only 1 rigid solidbody per car. Ive tried already but its just like driving a huge limo with a floating trailing axle.

That's too bad :( Could monster truck be made? Meaning, it's tyres would crush cars

More cars would be neat, and perhaps some specials too. But I think the game is lacking even more sorely additional official tracks

Monster truck might be kinda possible. All collisions in wreckfest are based on momentum,but you can deform things with weight e.g the bug that happens when 2 cars merge together after 1 lands on the other. Itll deform with weight then,but its not pretty,the car on top jumps around as they try and occupy the same space,creating downward momentum.

The other issue with monster trucks is the wheels. IRL the tire changes shape when it makes contact with a car,so you can drive over the car,not just into it. In wreckfest they are solid,so its like hitting a car with a huge rotating piece of concrete.

Both are probably possible with some work,but not currently.
