About This Game

Originally released in 2002, Street Legal brought new & insanely ambitious ideas to the racing genre, and set the groundwork for it's famous 2003 sequel, Street Legal Racing: Redline!

Strip your ride down to the bare chassis by directly clicking the parts inside the 3D garage, and rebuild it into a MEAN RACING MACHINE!!!
Take it out on the open streets of old Valo City and make your way up the ranks of the local racing clubs in challenging point-to-point races, unlocking new cars, engine types, and city districts along the way!

However, becoming #1 is not as simple as bringing skill at the wheel!
NOTHING LASTS FOREVER, and every part of the cars is individually simulated, contributing to their balance, compliance, aero, torque curve, gear ratios, and much more, all the way down to details like safe engine RPM, and even the power of the starter motor!

RUNNING GEAR / HANDLING

Fundamentally simulation, featuring a dash of high-grip arcade fun, all with satisfying sense of mass!
Whether on a keyboard or high-end FFB wheel, the players love it!

Swap wheels, shocks, springs and sways, to balance for understeer or oversteer using real-world suspension design principles!
Choose parts suited for Valo's jumps & curbs, protecting your oil pan & transmission, go low for style, or even remove them entirely and see what happens!

ENGINES

20 years after release, Street Legal still features some of the most advanced engine simulation ever seen in a game!

No pre-determined torque curves!
Power is calculated on-the-fly using real engine attributes like cylinder bore, stroke, compression, valve & spark timings, airflow rate, fuel mixture, and more!
The attributes will change depending on parts installed and their mechanical condition.
For example, a worn cylinder head will be given looser valve timings to simulate valve spring damage, leading to reduced power at high RPM.

Make your way from getting the most out of your little Inline 4 to building supercharged racing V8s, and screaming along at 10K RPM using Street Legal's insane work-of-art N/A V10!

FEEL THE WEAR & TEAR

Street Legal's dynamic permanent damage system affects individual parts according to point of impact, and it's not just visual!
Light bodywork dents will only increase aero drag, while bigger impacts can bend the entire chassis, affecting suspension geometry, and causing serious damage to the parts attached!

Keep the RPM in check to balance engine longevity and outright speed during races!

Running gear parts will individually lose effectiveness over time, according to loads experienced during your driving!
For example, a course with many right-hand turns will wear out the left-hand tyres first.

Harsh driving will wear your suspension, braking will wither, paint will scratch, bumpers will dent, bend, and be lost!
Intakes will clog, engines & drive will fail!

TRICK 'EM! TUNE 'EM! RACE 'EM!
...and keep 'em running! For NOTHING LASTS FOREVER!

Welcome to STREET LEGAL!
