I took a couple of years in computer engineering in university.
It's kinda weird, though, I've never contributed to an open source project, before. Figures that it's game-related. This contribution is not a very big deal, just adding variables and replacing a couple of numbers. Flan could've done this faster and probably more thorough, this was just an off-the-top-of-my-head thing. At least it compiles properly.
Edit: Acceleration and braking work properly, but not deceleration. I was in a rush and added the code to a key pressing event and should be adding it to a constantly checking event.
