yaya, got it. put it in my archives, too.
i've only recently upgraded my default skidding sounds to someone elses. can't say which though, just plonked it in there. and again thanks a bunch.
i keep spending too much time modifying and too little time actually driving. once i get this motherlode out, i intend to take a short break just for driving again mwahaha.
on a totally unrelated sidenote, i've currently got the tommies darker tire treads, but i think i saw some that appeared to be dusty-ish that looked to be even more realistic. any idea who did those and where i can get them
