From Darkwind Wiki
The engine is the main factor in a car's acceleration. (duh!)
These are the engines available in Darkwind and their bulk:
- An exposed engine will only take up as much bulk as the engine bay can hold. The excess bulk is exposed and therefore doesn't deduct from the chassis' available bulk/capacity.
- Rotary engines are substantially tougher, and slightly more powerful, than their non-rotary counterparts. They aren't as good as a V8 or V12 though, which is expected given their lower bulk.
- The 0.6L, the 3.2L V8, the 5L, and larger are rarely available from NPC vendors. They can still be acquired as loot or produced in player-operated camps. Rotary engines are typically camp-produced, but, do rarely spawn in the Wilderness.
- The general consensus from the community is that the 3.2L V8 and the 4L are roughly equivalent in terms of power, but the 3.2L V8 is smaller and lighter.
