NFSHS CARP Generator by AJ_Lethal


A spreadsheet tool that can help you to generate a CARP.txt file from scratch.





-Libreoffice 7.x or later

-MS Excel 2019 or later




-Open either the MS Excel version (.xlsx) or the OpenDocument version (.ods)

-Fill in the required data in the Main sheet

-If you need to find info on your car's performance there are a couple of places that could be useful for data, such as:

-Car magazines

-The manufacturer websites

-if everything else fails, pray to Saint Google

-You can also use CarTest to obtain stuff such as acceleration times, torque curve, etc. from car data as well. You can get here at:




-Since it's a DOS program you might need DOSBox to run it

-There's also a FEDATA compare data calculator, it's not 100% accurate but it's close enough.

-When you're done go to the Generated CARP sheet, select the A column and copy it. Then paste it in Notepad and save it as CARP.txt; from there you can import in your car.viv file with NFS Wizard or any other VIV utility.



-Justin "IH8COPS" Martin, Rudy & Sara (RDP) and Mitch Larsen for their research on CARP.txt data that was used as the basis for the calculations and tool tips present in the file.

-pete9516 for his opponent acceleration table tutorial ( which I used as the base for the opponent acceleration calculation.

    What did you use to create this file?

    It gives me warnings about corruption.

    Then, the file is messed up and with mass errors (no graphs too) when I try to open it with 3 different generations of MS Excel.

      I made the file in LibreOffice 7.1.5; I recommend using LibreOffice 7.x or MS Office 2019 onwards to open the file.

    MS Excel 2019 cannot open this properly :hmm:

    Can you save it to some other format, or... I don't know...

      I uploaded an updated version that comes in both .xlsx and .ods formats, the .xlsx version should work just fine.
