#1

Hey everyone, I’ve run a few competitions directly on Discord and want to open this one up to the forums (or at least make people aware) - I know not everyone likes to submit on discord, but that’s the way I like to do it!

Your car will be scored against Strop driving an accurate 1986 B2K Turbo Callaway Corvette Replica.

This is a Beam NG biased competition - where I will drive the cars on beam at length with some scoring from automation. your cars will be tested with a fanatec Clubsport wheels and pedals - with a minimum of 15 minutes driving time for each entry.

Entry Closing Date - End of July 15th - One submission only, no resubmissions - 1 submission per person.

Competition video here:

#2

I will do my utmost best to find time to make something for this competition! It’s the style I love.


#3

I’ll be watching this intently… from afar unfortunately


#4

I mean you could imagine me as Robocop :tm: but that would be ignoring the fact that I’m a horse.

So you’ll just have to imagine me as a robo-horse cop from the 80s.

Which essentially makes me 30-30 from Bravestarr

Which, considering he was the thuggish one, means I will absolutely fuck your shit up if you fail :smile:

Happy racing!


#5

So are these cars supposed to be regular supercars like a Countach, Testarossa, etc, or can they be tuned versions of lower-end sportscars? If the police car is a tuned Vette, I’d be inclined to build the latter.


#6

Ah finally a chance to rebuild one of my favorite lore cars, the Buffalo, a muscle car that punches in the supercar class. This top of the line 455GT trim sports a 7456cc 24 valve V8 and uprated interior features.


#7

They can be replicas, or tuned versions, or your own unique creating, as long as they fit the ruleset.


#8

It would be a lot cooler if the punishment for failure was immediate destruction… with a bazooka!


#9

Oh I’ll destroy you all right with my bazooka


#10

That can be arranged!


#12

looks good! I’m gonna drive it now to see what its like.

#14

Drivability is my enemy in this challenge :frowning:


#15

how much power are you running? The drivability target shouldn’t be that hard to hit.


#16

Well I’m going mid engine, so that makes it a little harder. I can get drivability within the limits by having different tyre sizes front and rear, but then my servicing costs blow out… :\

I’m probably trying to be too ambitious… Need to aim for Ferrari 328, not F50 maybe :stuck_out_tongue:


#17

Yeah the F50 might be a bit ambitious considering it didn’t exist until 1995 :joy:


#18

Yeah, when I sat down and compared the stats, that’s what it was competing against…

My refined and not as crazy entry is looking a lot better at managing to meet all the requirements. Drivability is still my enemy, however only in BeamNG now :stuck_out_tongue:

EDIT: Ugh! Man… I’m stuck with a car that either understeers everywhere, or snap oversteers on every corner :sa:


#19

Are you on the discord ? I can test drive it also if u want some input!


#20

Thanks, but I’m pretty much finished now :slight_smile:

EDIT:

Ah I was going to leave it until later, but not going to be able to access until after the due date, so here is my proper entry^:

1986 Boccaccino - Celeres Centuria

The story of Boccaccino is one that is rich in style, sophistication, and a dedication to doing things differently, yet there is one automobile that remains one of the most interesting yardsticks in the marque’s long history; the Boccaccino Celeres.

Originally conceived in the mid 1970’s, the designers were required to exercise patience until technology could catch up to their vision. The Celeres’s unique shape and juxtaposition of soft angular flow give us a very different car compared to the traditional designs of the period.

The beating heart of this vehicle was based upon the natural evolution of the prior v12 engine, which had won universal acclaim from both customers and critics, however it was decided that something a little bit more special was warranted this time around. The Boccaccino Celeres was initially offered in two specifications, the road-based Celeres Centuria and the track-focused Celeres Tribunis, with both featuring the new turbocharged 3.4-litre v16 engine, mounted transversely behind the cabin. Where the Celeres Ceturia is an elegant fusion of luxury and power that embodied timeless class, the Celeres Tribunis is a raw expression of humanity’s desire to prove superiority over nature. This deliberate dichotomy serves to prove that there is no other mode of transport like a Boccaccino.

How dare you! You basically used exactly my headlight combination! And that while without even knowing how I designed them! DEVIL!
