I have had this sometimes, usually I drive a standard size car, and then I ram a cabby very violently where the gas tank is.

The car igniting I can understand - just. It's when the driver spontaneously combusts that gets me. I can only assume they were smoking when I crashed into them and they dropped the cigarette. rolleyes.gif

where is the gas tank? and why is that sometimes i hit the car and it catches fire while other times, the driver just gets out the car and then falls to the ground? i know speed is a factor to whether it'll catch fire or just kill the driver but how do i determine what speed causes what?

There are plenty of variables with the crashes. Impact-spot/speed/vehicle-type/etc go into the game deciding what to do. I've had plenty of head-on collisions that resulted in a fire. Sometimes fire, sometimes the ped flies out the window, sometimes the ped slumps over the steering wheel dead, sometimes nothing. The more you do it the more you'll see the different outcomes.

Is the fire supposed to happen? Maybe. It is possible it isn't but the game engine works all the variables into a bigger or much more damaging impact than it should be.
