ATC Automation Touring Championship - excellent racing since 1956 - Season 4 results complete, Season 5 rules fixed


#647

Goddammit still 7 unread messages with entries. I’ll scrutinize them all today, promised.


#648

I know the feeling.


#649

I do not see real issues… Which is no wonder with the current rules. :smiley:

But some do not have the minimum cooling, but match the 50 reliability score.
Which do you consider as the right descision? Stick to the min cool required or is 50 reliability enough in this case?


#650

50 reliability. Let’s not give a top speed handicap, sticking with the liberal ruleset of this round


#651

Ok, then I would modify the recieved entrants to that.
Any complaints?


#652

If it isn’t in the rules, it’s allowed :wink: Why would you modify anything?


#653

Some cars have that cooling and I would pull the slider untill its 50 reliability.
Easier than sending revised cars that are acutally the same what I did.


#654

You are too fair :grin:


#655

This is why I failed as a lawyer. Now I am doing something different. Again in a business where it’s definitely not about fairness. What an irony. :smiley:


#656

11 entrants so far. Looks like my challenge is not too bad. :smiley:

Races will be done on friday or saturday.


#657

So here we came! After exhausting tests and engine prototypes we finally got the new Heirloom Racing Car!

With the new 6.0L V12 OHV engine, we got a little less power, but 2000 rpm earlier!
But to feed air to this little monster we needed to fit a hood scoop and laterals vents, the overall aerodynamics was improved too.

At the improvement can be seen when we got 4.1s faster at Automation Test Track (ATT) and costing $600 less!


#658

That is not a car to scorn.


#659

Unfortunately I don’t have the time to finetune this round - my main changes are to the engine only.


#660

what year are the races now?


#661

1964/65


#662

Dont rush it. You know I am friendly to late entrants.

National Motors adapted their Asculum muscle car for the 1964/65 ATC season by removing the rear seats and installing a six-liter version of their overhead-valve V8, as well as retuning the suspension for better handling. A large rear wing and deeper front airdam were also added in a bid to improve aerodynamics.

As expected, the public took to the standard four-seat 6.0 in droves due to its reliability and power. However, those who wanted even more precise dynamics preferred the hardcore R trim.

The six-liter engine introduced in the Asculum would go on to be used for several decades before it was finally replaced by a larger all-alloy unit. Surviving examples so equipped are now collectors’ items.


#664

My car is still a mess. Looks like I have a task for this evening.


#665

Go hard or go home mate


#666

Or go fail, like me :laughing:
