    Default Run8 Kicking Tutorial

    Posted this tutorial this evening as I was kicking cars over at US Borax for trick 2 on the California RTS server. I wanted to do this earlier in the year but there was some issues with kicking prior to the latest update. From what I can tell those issues are now gone. Add this with the additional features of setting hand brakes on enemy trains, as well as stopping any runaways for rookies (like me at this) it's a very enjoyable experience.

    Kicking cars is probably one of my favorite things to do in real life. It's actually really fun, who would have thought?
    So it is interesting to see it in place of a simulator.

    Of course, you have two ways of doing so.. Bottling the air, or dumping the air and bleeding the valve.

    Haven't tried doing it with bottling the air, I know the dump and bleed works well. There may be some kind of restriction or limitation in the sim on it. I'll have to try bottling it next time and see how the sim acts.

    The hand brakes are currently set at either on or off (nothing variable). The angle cocks have 3 setting open, closed, and partial.

    Thanks
