Each car body in the game has one of six default body types, also known as hitboxes. These are Octane, Dominus, Plank, Breakout, Hybrid, and Merc. These standardized hitboxes were introduced in Patch v1.35, the Anniversary Update. Before then, each vehicle had its own unique properties.
The Merc hitbox is the only hitbox to be added after the other hitboxes were established. It was introduced with Patch v1.81, adding a new unique hitbox into the game for the first time since Patch v1.35. It was initially exclusive to the Merc body, but cars released subsequently such as the Battle Bus were also given the hitbox. It is both taller and narrower than the other hitboxes, although details such as dimensions and handling are currently unknown.
There are some numbers known about other characteristics of each body type, but this was purely done by testing.
How to calculate exact Handling specifications is still unknown. However, these are some accurate testing values. (higher value = tighter turning radius)
How to calculate the exact Ground Height is still unknown. However, these are some accurate testing values.
|Body Type||Ground Height|
How to calculate the exact Inclination is still unknown. However, these are some accurate testing values. (front lower than back)
