Not sure what "esp" means...
Anyway, first of all the car needs to be inside a ZIP, not a RAR.
Secondly, you need to put it in a different place, in your Windows profile actually.
See this tutorial.

Finally it won't work for you anyway, because it seems like you're playing Nations.
If you buy TMU, you can use custom cars and avatars.
(It's technically possible to play TMNF with a TMUF account, so say so if you are and you still can't get it to work.)

ESP is one of the default Stadium Cars. Represents Spain.

First of all, did you buy TrackMania United (Forever)?
If you only have the free TrackMania Nations it will never work, so it's no use trying.

(To answer your question while I'm at it: You can add more cars, you don't have to replace an existing country car.)

I'm having a bit of trouble... :ftw:
I want to give the stock Stadium car semi-transparent tires and spoiler. How can I achieve this?

Try not to hi-jack someone else's thread, with your own unrelated question. :thumbsup:

Now onto the answer. You can't. The only part of the 3D model that the game assigns transparency : is glass.

You would have to make a 100% new 3D vehicle with a spoiler, and wheels made of the glass part of the 3D model (which then won't steer or rotate!). You can edit the 2D skin textures as much as you like, but the car parts which are solid/opaque now, can't be made transparent or translucent.

Just in addition to Gording, you can make your glass wheels rotating and steering, the materials can be used on all the meshes (d/g/s), so you can make transparent wheels (those muscle cars' chrome rims probably have glass on them). But of course, this work requires a 3d graphic studio.
