Car Smoke trails using Particle Effects

I've been working on a Particle Effects engine during the last week or so and the results turned out quiet nice so far. It took a lot of tweaking and using some hacked together physics for the car movement but overall I think it is good enough to show off a little.

I'll be cleaning up the Particle Engine code and making a post explaining how to go about creating your own particle effects engine as well as providing a sample engine for people to work from.

You'll need at least Java 5 plugin for your browser in order to view the applet. Click on the applet and use the right and left arrow keys to move the car respectively. The responsiveness of the car isn't very good but it demonstrates a use for the particle effect.
