****** 1. LEGAL CRAP ******

---------------------------


Welcome to my rule bending, file editing FAQ of NASCAR Thunder 2003. Here I 
will show you how to edit the basic files that make up this belated game. I
still don't get why the mother****in' Goddamn thing still likes to crank
left. Anyway, just read it. 

This is my guide for NASCAR Thunder 2003, version 0.8. When I first thought of
this guide, I couldn't think of one, until I remembered I wanted to do a
guide of this game.

NOTE: This guide is © 2006 by Adam 'WWEandNWOfan' Sweet. I do not own the
name (pretty freakin' obvious). The National Association of Stock Car Auto 
Racing owns the name and anything else that they own. This guide is unofficial,

authorized written consent by me. The NASCAR name, and anything else 
associated with it may be distributed publicly with authorized written consent

the law. So if you wish to keep your computer alive and virus free, DO NOT 
STEAL THIS GUIDE. I REPEAT, DO NOT STEAL THIS GUIDE. I will take legal action
if you take my guide and publicly distribute it without telling me first.

**If anyone sees this guide on anywhere but the currently allowed sites, 
notify

Please include when emailing me-
Subject line - "NT2003 FAQ", "GameFAQs related", or "Guide Related".

If I don't see that, you will NOT be replied to, and I will delete it. I get
too much junk mail to respond to, and I will reply if those are put into the
subject line.

****** 3. EDITING FILES ******

------------------------------

!!!!!!Want No Car Drag? Here's how:!!!!!!

OK. Go to the directory that NT2003 is installed in. Find a car that you want 
to edit. Go to Season03 and then Vehicles. Go to either Chevy, Dodge, Ford,
or Pontiac. Go to the same car folder (ex. Aarons99) as the car you want.
Click on the HDV file. Use Notepad/Wordpad as they are in complete English.
You will find inside a file exactly with this: 


//
// This is the high-detail vehicle parameter file.
// It is pointed to by one or more *.veh files.
//
// Any range has the following values: (minimum, step size, number of steps)
// Any setting refers to the step from 0 to <number of steps - 1>.
//
// Everything is in SI units (kg, m, kPa, N, etc.), except:
// Engine speed is measured in RPM.
// Angles are measured in degrees.
//
// +x = left
// +y = up
// +z = rear
//
// Pushrod connections are adjusted from the values found in this file
// based on the graphical location of the wheels.  If the graphical location
// does not match the physical location (found in a .pm file), then all
// suspension joints (including the pushrods) are adjusted to match the
// graphical locations.  It should be noted that suspension joints are also
// adjusted after setting the camber, caster, and toe-in.
//
// The "reference plane" is equal to the ride height.  Note that we have
// added a graphical offset because NASCAR measures the ride heights to the
// frame of the car, but the bodywork hangs about an inch lower (especially
// at the air dam).  The graphical offset does not affect the physics in any
// way, just the appearance of how far the vehicle is off the ground.  Note
// that the "undertray" points are where the vehicle bottoms out.
//
// Aerodynamic variables:
// Lift is negative downforce
//

!!!!!!WANT TIRES TO BE BETTER? HERE'S HOW!!!!!!

Edit this file directly in the Season03 file.

// Tire brand found in *.hdv files refer to file name.
// "Generic" brand tires ... hint hint hint!

// Slip curves do not represent the coefficient of grip.  Instead they
 represent
// the reaction to the current slip.  Regardless of the peak value in 
this curve,
// it will be automatically normalized to have a peak of 1.0.

// The peak of the slip curve is dynamically adjusted to higher or lower
 slip
// values based on current load and possibly other factors.  See the 
LatPeak and
// LongPeak tire parameters for more info.

// Slip curve data points are connected using a cubic spline, so there is 
no
// need to use a massive amount of data points unless the curve is really 
busy.

// Lateral slip angles are normalized so that you need to take the sine of
 the
// angle to get the slip.  For example, 12 degrees is a slip of 0.208 and 
vice
// versa.  Longitudinal slip ratios closely match the SAE definition.

// All curves should probably go out to at least a slip of 2.0, even the 
lateral
// and braking curves.  Although locking up your brakes is a slip of 1.0, 
there
// are situations where you can spin your wheels in the opposite direction
 of
// your velocity (like shifting into reverse while moving forwards).

// Note that the initial slope of the curve may have an effect on how some
// features behave, such as traction control, skids, and tire smoke.

****** 4. CLOSING NOTES ******

------------------------------

This guide is copyright 2006 by Adam Sweet. NASCAR Thunder 2003 and this 
information is copyright 2002-2006 EA Tiburon. I do not own any of this info 
stored in this guide. DO NOT ASK ME ABOUT 3D STUFF. I don't know anything 
about the MAS files. I don't know WHAT created them.

One more note: Don't mess around with the SCN files. 
Those are camera files, and if messed around with too much, they can really
screw something up.

I would like to thank: 

God for everything

Me for writing this guide

EA for a great game

My brothe--- No wait. Never mind.

GOODBYE!!!
