Bug Description

While in Alpha Project LOVER$BOY's Hells Racing, it's original cycle delay was set to 0. Sometimes when a player hits the rim walls, they get stuck and are unable to move again.

After wards, the same server was tested with the delay set to 0.01 and the problem has stopped somewhat.

We could clamp it to have 0.0001 or something as minimum. 0 makes no sense to begin with.

Are you sure 0.0001 wouldn't freeze the bike if a racing server is to use it?

The most likely reason I can think that this may have happened is that the cycle's trail length must be higher than 0, meaning you can get stuck on your own walls when turning by a wide angle. In order to have no trail on your cycle you have to have CYCLE_FIRST_SPAWN_PROTECTION on and CYCLE_WALL_TIME set to a decently high value.
