Thanks for the concise tutorial Ottosparks, I have been trying it out on my own and not having much success until I found your tutorial. Will definitely be playing around with it a little more when the weekend swings around.

The bolt always hits the object's center which may not always be the most, ah, gratifying. On those occasions I have passed in either a different part of the object, or a dummy object whose vehicle is the thing I want to hit to the method.
