B-SPEC Bob Competition – 80s Hatch/city car [Race 2 - Tunes due 20/09]


#81

That’s too difficult to balance. It would give too much freedom to users and allow significant power output differences.


#82

So I exported my GMI 350K to beam and it felt pretty nible, for only having 51 unstressed BHP from it’s tiny turbo 550cc 3 pot engine. Even got it up on 2 wheels whilst having a blast driving it. If it gets considered as a car to buy for others. I hope they mod the life out of it as I think the 80’s kei was a good attempt.


#83

So, I have 20 accepted cars, and I am fine tuning the prices.

One of the accepted cars was made by a user that might or might not have been an alt of a user that has a history in multi-accounting and is now muted on discord. I am looking into exchanging that for one of the submissions that dropped from the shortlist.

Thank you all for submitting cars.

I received 3 kei cars, which were well made and nice-looking. However, the turbocharged 600cc engines were simply too stressed and tuned to the limit already to allow the necessary flexibility for this challenges.

In general, I accepted a number of cars that fit the power to weight class and have similar performance, while technically not being small hatchbacks. They fall in the same price class.

I dropped a few cars due to being too powerful in standard form, one for having a mix-maxxed (y tho?) manual 3-speed gearbox, one for having an ET of over 200 and it not being a 500 horsepower supercar, which is downright weird.

The most difficult selection was getting the numbers down to something manageable (which ended up being 20, higher than the foreseen 15). So many were dropped because the styling or the engineering was the same as other entries, yet a bit more bland - this is subjective, as all are basically blandmobiles.

TL/DR
Detailed shortlist upcoming in due time, with a bit of delay due to the apparent ban of one of the users that submitted a car that got accepted initially.


#84

I have a feeling my nyoomy boi got canned for being too powerful


#85

I thought my kei entry wasn’t that stressed… Maybe it wasn’t mine


#86

Context.

Too stressed to allow the necessary flexibility for this challenge.

I do take note of the good kei-car designs received, and the fact they were fun to drive.


#87

Well I don’t think my car had a 200ET, I wonder how that happened?

I hope it wasn’t removed for being bland though.


#88

Mostly quality slider abuse by accident. When you want to put it +1 but pressed the button too hard.


#89

Automation cars (Part I)

Budget for first race: 20.000 credits
(A more expensive car can be bought though, this will be detracted from the budget for race 2)

Budget for second race: 30.000 credits

Third race: A ballast penalty (+5 quality points to safety) for the top 5 cars, additional budget and upgrades for the bottom half.

Scores below are relative to each other.

#96

So a little summary.

  • You can register as a team (see first post). Deadline 21 August.

  • You will receive a PM from me confirming registration.

  • In response to this PM you can buy a car for the Automation only competition and/or a car for the BeamNG only competition. You don’t need to enter both. If you do, you don’t need to take the same car. Deadline is 23 August. ==> you get the .car file at this point.

  • You must buy your updates (again in that same PM thread) for the first race by 25 August. (Though date is provisional if too soon.)

Summary

Upgrades available for purchase will be:

  • race exhaust (removes catalyst and mufflers - allows you adapt exhaust size);
  • front and rear aero (can be added and tuned)
  • race transmission (allows you to change and retune the transmission);
  • brake upgrade (allows you to retune the brakes);
  • suspension tuning (allow you to change and retune the suspension);
  • limited slip differential (your choice which);
  • sport tires (including wider thread);
  • oil change (bumps up the fuel type and compression to 98RON);
  • weight reduction stage 1 (removes all seats but the driver, which is replaced by a sports sear and the radio);
  • weight reduction stage 2 (removes safety and sets quality to -15);
  • turbo (adds pre-set ball baring performance turbo - and changes compression to highest allowed Octane).

Price List:

Exhaust Aero Gearbox Brakes Suspension Differential Tires Oil Change Weight R1 Weight R2 Turbo
1000 500 1000 500 1500 500 1500 1000 1500 2500 8000
  • Cheating will be punished severely, so do not adapt any sliders except where explicitly allowed.

  • You can send in a personalized car and your tune (where allowed by the updates bought) for the first race by 29 August. (Though date is provisional if too soon.)

  • Considering fixtures = weight, you can send a personlized car for lore, while also sending a clean tuned car for the actual time.

  • In BeamNG you can drive yourself and send me a replay. The laps are flying laps. Corner cutting is not allowed, you must remain withing the circuit and go no further than the curbs, even if checkpoints allow otherwise.

Important info:

Cars can be sold to multiple users, but I will limit to 1/4 of the field for a single car. So, first come first served.


#97

It is quick becoming apparent that a few cars are proving to be popular choices. In terms of performance. Things should be fairly balanced.

Still time to register for the challenge! Whether only Automation or also for the BeamNG part (which you can drive yourself or let me set a time for you) is a choice up to you.

The updates which you choose to apply or not are going to be decisive in winning.


#98

whats the current field and team selection looking like car wise?


#99

Teams entered are on the bottom of the first post. Cars bought can be shared by the racing team, but if they don’t want so, the organisation will make public this information in their stead.

I can tell you that one car from the catalogue are currently sold out (1/4th rule), two others are nearing that limit, unless other teams enter and widen the field.


#100

How do I buy a car? I already registered.
