ST13 sandrail buggy: wheelindude
ST13 Dune Crawler: Hein
ST14 Conversion: BruteTerror.
St14 Skins: SpunInDarkness
ST14 Engine sound: MarijnS95
Little bit of history:
First there was the 454 sandrail dune buggy by wheelindude. Which was massively tweaked by myself into something referred to as the Dune Crawler. A big tires mad truck which could go anywhere even up steep hills. It was fitted with lots of crazy skins and was a big heap of fun to drive around any map with.
And now, with a lot of help from BT and SID, this crazy truck is now converted into ST14 and again has undergone yet another overhaul. It is now know as theRaakry, which is Zuid Afrikaans for Hit and Run (very basic translation). I figured that name would fit perfect as it is a fast truck which can take a hit and keep going. It can be fitted with all the default wheel set plus three wheels made by BruteTerror. The Dune Tires are custom made for this truck, and i think they look wicked! It has good suspension and not too much exhaust. It does not have headlights so you are better off using it during day time .
Does not do MP or achievements.
Package replaces uaz and zil and kamaz. Truck has been upgraded to the latest xml specs. Added hoodcam for the latest stable.
23-3-2015 Massive upgrade!
Thanks to a few people with more coding skills then mine i can now release a massively upgraded Raakry. With the help of Tattoo and Marijns95 we have now a Raakry with the following improvements:
– Improved shock absorbers (Tattoo)
– Better gears (from the SID Raptor, thanks to SID)
– A rotating fan on the back (Tattoo)
– New skin theme US Flag (Tattoo)
– Glitching pixels on the bottom sorted out (Tattoo)
The new Raakry can easily take on the Blackwater Raceway now. Try it, you will not be dissapointed.
Added 3 new tire types and removed the default truck tires. Also adjusted smoke from the exhaust to be less in-yer-face!
Update the package to include the three new wheels made by Tattoo. Paddles, Mud shredder and Tractor.
More info on those wheels here:
Raakry updated to latest_stable files.
Added billboard files.
Fixed sound files.

This car is a madman! Love it on Project X, but mute is your friend with this beast.
At full throttle it screams through your brain like a dentist’s drill. Also, watch you view from the rear. I flipped it end over end on Project X, because I hit a small jump in the road, but could not see it coming from the exhaust cloud this car throws up.
I didn’t know I had flipped until it was over and the cloud faded.

It’s not mine really.. just cobbled together using parts from whatever mod i found that seemed usefull. So its against my own rule not too upload someone elses work.
daniel haskinsMar 18, 2016 5:43 am

I only ask because I cant figure out how to instal mods manually
Techno DeltaJun 03, 2016 7:01 pm
it’s pretty easy. you’ll need winzip or winrar.
open the downloaded mod with one of those, there should be some files like textures, sounds, meshes, ect.
Go into your game directory:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Spintires
open the media folder, not the compressed media, but the normal one.
Drag the files from the raakry into the media folder.
then. start the game. and enjoy!
fyi… this thing is fast and hard to control.
