Reminder - This is an engineering challenge, not how pretty you can make it.
It’s 1993 and the war is OVER!!!
Well, when we say “over”, we mean there has been a 3 month cease fire.
In this time we’ve managed to clean up some of our tourist attractions to entice holiday makers, with money, to come and help out our weakened economy.
This, my automotive friends, is were you come in.
We need vehicles to carry our new friends, the tourists, around. But we’d like these vehicles to be multipurpose. In the, likely, event that war breaks out then we’d like them to be used for other purposes….troop transports, ambulances, etc. So please take this into consideration.
Alas the airforce has requisitioned all of the aluminium again so there can be no alloys or partial alu panels this time around. And the ECU ban is still, very much, in place.
Seats a minimum of 6 (5 tourists and 1 driver)
No +3 rear seats. These can be removed so proper seats are mandatory
Trim and variation are 1993 or earlier.
Noise below 35
Trim emissions below 2000
20% - Reliability – We don’t want the tourists breaking down in any “unfortunate areas”
20% - Cost to build – We like cheap……quite a lot!
15% - Drivability – Easier to drive…less accidents…win/win
15% - Comfort – We don’t have the means to repair tourist spines!
15% - Offroad – Should we ever need to send them off to war!
10% - Fuel economy – Regular unleaded at the most (LQ fuel will get a bonus)
5% - Service costs – Nothing would be a great figure, unrealistic but still great!
Non Regular, or LQ gas.
Aluminum heads, blocks and panels…including partial!
If Mech Injection is used, TC, ESC, and Speed Limiter use is banned, as these are ECU controlled.
