This version updates the earlier files (TD_EFX.ZIP) and makes the smoke effect much less bulky. These files change the default FSX tire burn smoke effects, making them less dark, more transparent and with a bit more vortex swirl. Also adds tire screech, which can be heard if within 100 meters of a landing AI aircraft. By Derek MacCarthy.
