Coventry Type 10 1.02 update

What's fixed:
- Electricity leaks;
- Windows can be opened only when sitting inside for non-owner avatars.
- Physic model improved - car is sticking better to the road(gradeability slightly decreased, max slope for climbing is 35 degrees now);
- Steering tweaked a bit, less responsible at higher speeds.

What's new:
- Parking gear now turns physics off(if applied at speed less than 2m/s, otherwise you'll hear creaking noise);
- Sound effects for rolling on prim or terrain surface;
- Suspension creaks sounds when wheel is hitting the surface which is more than 15 cm higher or lower than previous.

We also added our top battery to the package, just in case.
