Time is up so here are our participants:
The Plotka T by @ImKaeR. Comes with a rear mounted turbocharged Boxer 6 with exactly 2000cc’s, and 238hp. This entry took a close look at the company’s most direct competitor and decided it could do better.
The Raider Turbo by @NandR. Also with a rear mounted turbocharged engine with exactly 2000cc’s, only this one is an inline 5 capable of 233hp. Interestingly, the market analysis showed that the lights sports segment likes this car just as much as the track segment likes the Plotka T.
The Zephorus Kigore V6 by @Riley. As the name implies, this incredibly detailed car comes with a V6 engine, mid mounted transversely also with the max 2000cc’s allowed but only with an output of 152hp due to using a maybe dated 4 barrel instead of the more modern fuel injection systems. Early reports suggest that less power does not seem to make the market segments any happier, but maybe it will compensate with performance.
The BATS SPC2000 by @Jaimz decided to go on a different direction than the other contestants and choose a path more mixing the famous Winthorpe Pony’s and the Batmobile. It comes with a front mounted Inline 6 turbocharged engine with 1997cc’s producing 147hp. Early test driver feedback suggest this car to be really fun for drifting.
The Typhoon 140 by @DrPepper2002 is the odd one out of the challenge. It made some singular decisions, namely, it was the only one to use less than the allowed capacity for the challenge, use a Inline 4 engine and use mechanical fuel injection. The mid mounted inline 4 produces, as the name implies, 140hp.
