Hiya there, I would have appreciated it if you contacted myself or @Leonardo9613 before using the ATCC name for a competition seeing as we are the ones who’ve run competitions with that name in the past.


#3

Oh sorry, I havent seen those threads.
Would you like me to change it


#4

Yes, I think we’d all appreciate it. The search box is there for a reason.


#5

Done. So sorry about that


#6

No worries, it’s an honest mistake. Now, back to the competition…


#7

There should probably be quality slider restriction or PU/ET restriction, no?


#8

done, thanks for the heads up


#9

For the sake of lore, a lot of the 2.5m plus 1990-2005 bodies would not have come with a 2l or smaller engines.
Maybe better to limit to family sedans and hot hatches (or the coupe version of those family sedans), or any other formulation that would rule out the pure sports cars with typically larger engines (the racing versions of which would run in GT classes).


#10

i have edited so that any lore car with a significantly larger engine is discouraged, but not banned because it could happen


#11

Do the PU and ET limits also apply to the engine?

Also, in the rebooted ATCC thread (which used the Kee engine version), the rules stated that a high-flow catalytic converter was mandatory for all entries; there’s no reason why it should not be the case here. And that earlier competition allowed the use of VVT/VVL. So it might not be right to ban its use here either. I am, however, in favor of the use of normally aspirated engines being mandatory for this challenge of yours.


#12

It applies to the total, so the engine + the rest of the car

#14

:cry:


#15

What does PU and ET stand for?


#16

Production Units, Engineering Time


#17

I just died

Nice competition though, will definitely have to make a car


#18

Might have an idea I could throw together and get running.


#19

A small privateer team will be taking part with a Contendiente. More details to follow.


#20

A couple of questions - are there any limits on:

  • Specific Bodies?
  • Body Morphs?
  • Differentials
  • Wheel size & rim material

Also, when you say no semi-active suspension, do you mean dampers? I assume also active springs?

EDIT: Will update car with new name
