Graphic setting to disable spark effects?

A lot of things can be turned off in the graphics menu, but not the effects produced by spark generators (for example steam, smoke, fire).

Such a setting would be nice for players with not so good hardware, because this effects are real fps-killers.

This way, track makers could implement this effects without taking care of the potato-users all the time.

+1
The only downside of the idea is that toggling it between tracks is not really an option so those with bad hardware would have to keep the effects turned off for most of the time, though they might not struggle on stock and modest tracks.

Another thing that came to my mind and would be an issue: Sparks can also have collisions enabled in the properties.txt. If this would be the case, deactivating the spark effects would also have influence to the racing conditions of the single racers.

However, a solution would be, that only sparks with deactivated (object-) collision flag would be disabled.
