Have a look at our [http://supertuxkart.sourceforge.net/New_drivelines driveline page] (and the [http://supertuxkart.sourceforge.net/Theoretical_Driveline_Model| theoretical driveline model] page). At this stage STK uses a simple projection of the kart position onto the XZ-plane (by dropping the Y coordinate) to determine where the kart is. This obviously will not work anymore when the 'up' direction can change anytime. A proper implementation of finding where the kart is will probably be the most difficult part of this proposal. Due to the larger number of classes that might need to be changed (including bullet) good OO-design skills and quick understanding of existing code would be rather important prerequisites for this task. Also maths and some physics skills are important.
