Dodge Charger SRT8 keeps flipping

Hi guys,

I'm new to modding GTA4. I've succesfully added the Charger SRT8 to my GTA and have edited all the required lines in carcols, vehicles and handling. Still my car keeps flipping as soon as I try to take a corner.

Here are the lines:

Vehicles.ide
sabregt, sabregt, car, SABREGT, SABREGT, VEH@LOW, VEH@LOW_HI3_HI3, 10, 50, 0.2850, 0.2850, 0, 5, 1.0 ,0, ext_requi+ext_strong+livery

Handling.dat
SABREGT 1700.0 2.0 85 0.0 -0.60 -0.30 0.0 5 0.99 1.5 345.0 0.45 0.65 0.7 35.0 4.05 3.80 14.0 0.15 0.42 1.3 0.7 0.7 0.14 -0.23 0.0 0.31 1.0 1.0 0.8 1.5 0.0 22000 440000 0 0

Carcols.dat
sabregt, 133,0,12,29, 29,0,12,29, 29,0,12,3, 1,0,12,29, 1,0,12,3, 0,0,12,29, 0,0,12,3, 3,0,12,29, 3,0,12,3, 133,0,12,3,

Can anybody spot if I did something wrong?

edit: this is what the readme file says:

Quote:
How to install (replacing method):
1) Extract charger.wft and charger.wtd and rename them to sabregt or buffalo (highly recommended!)
2) Use SparkIV or OpenIV and browse to vehciles.img and replace the files. Save after you're done.
3) Browse to "\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto IV\common\data" and replace each file using text editor with the corresponding lines:

-handling.dat:
CHARGER 1982.0 0.33 85 0.0 0.0 -0.52 0.02 5 0.265 1.0 280.0 0.55 0.52 0.8 33.0 1.50 1.25 13.5 0.14 0.4832 2.4 1.8 2.2 0.05 -0.06 -0.01 0.475 1.0 0.5 0.95 1.5 0.0 25000 440010 0 0

-vehicles.ide:
charger, charger, car, CHARGER, SABREGT, VEH@LOW, VEH@LOW_HI3_HI3, 10, 50, 0.2850, 0.2850, 0, 5, 1.0 ,0, ext_requi+ext_strong+livery

-carcols.dat:
charger, 133,0,12,29, 29,0,12,29, 29,0,12,3, 1,0,12,29, 1,0,12,3, 0,0,12,29, 0,0,12,3, 3,0,12,29, 3,0,12,3, 133,0,12,3,

Look at the readme's handling and look at yours. They're different. So go to your handling.dat and replace it with the one in the readme. This will stop the flipping. OR you can use this tool to install all of your future vehicles: http://www.gta4-mods.com/tools/gta-i...ler-v12-f11235

I also tried replacing the sabregt instances, just copying from the readme and pasting it over the sabregt. Doesn't work

Thanks,I just did. Restored all the backed up files first, used the tool, but still it flips over

It works once I rename filelist.pak, but then my game looks all blown out (Icenhancer installed)
edit: replacing the filelist.pak with aru's filelist.pak doesn't do any good on the graphics either. So right now it's either blown out graphics, or good car handling.

Try a different car then, with the installer.
