Unless the game is moddable (I don't know the game, so I can't tell) then you'll have very hard time to change anything - especially, in your case, the input of the physic egine.

I'm not sure if we can help, but anyway, good luck :)

Yes, you want either a hex editor or a disassembly program.

here is a screenshot of what the hex editor looks like:

here is a screenshot of what a disassembler looks like:

if you instantly understand what's on those screens then it's possible that you can do what you want. If not, then you have no hope in the near future of doing what you want.

basically, what you want to do is one of the hardest things you could conceivably do on a computer and requires decades of schooling and training.

Who said that? Someone who's done it? Some post on some message board? Someone who "knows alot" about computers?

To the community who responded: perhaps this game has data files with definitions of driving styles (turn radius, friction co-efficent of tires, car mass, etc.) that can be edited. probably specific to this game.

If the file format is unknown, it will be less than possible to get the data and modify them. You may find the textures or the models this way, but physic data are just a bunch of values with no meaningfull layout.

Anyway, the file format may be described on wotsit - I don't know.
