This car is for Racer v0.5.3 beta 4.0
The Mauler was inspired by Hobbes, a stuffed Tygar that seems to be either holding philosophical conversation, or knocking people's daylights out. Its playful, but also packs a monstrous V8 punch that if skillfully handled, can keep those front wheels to the sky for quite a long time.
This truck loves to roll over terrain more then zooming around a racetrack. Its high grip tires and 4wd let it go lots of places your typical exotic car would get totally stuck. Tracks with actual terrain are the most fun. Here is a track I've modded into a dirt track to get you started.
A high center of gravity, lots of power, and lots of grip, mean that on pavement its fairly easy to flip it over. Be careful of how much you ask from it, as you can go overboard.
On road surfaces, it has enough braking to pick the back wheels off the ground.
A wheelie is a matter of throttle control, best to do one starting in 2nd gear, give it hard, then back off a bit. The higher the angle of the truck, the less power it takes to hold it up. Try to not hit the back bumper on the ground.
