Each car body in the game has one of five default body types, also known as hitboxes. These are Octane, Dominus, Plank, Breakout and Hybrid. These standardized hitboxes were introduced in Patch v1.35, the Anniversary Update. Before then, each vehicle had its own unique properties.
With Patch v1.81, a sixth unique hitbox was added to the game—the Merc hitbox. It will initially be exclusive to the Merc body, but cars released in the future may use the hitbox. Details such as dimensions and handling are currently unknown. This hitbox is both taller and narrower than the other hitboxes!
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)
