Guess it's my turn then.
Ladies and Gentlemen, my favorite production car ever, replicated in Automation...
The Dodge Viper. (Specifically the '08 SRT-10)
This wasn't nearly as hard as i'd thought it might have been.
This specific car frame melds and shapes into near just the right proportions for the Viper. (Note that the rear blinkers should be red, had no way of doing that)
Had no way of mounting side exhausts so i didn't bother with any pipes at all.
The Rear tires can't be made nearly wide enough to the actual size, but are still pretty humongous.
Downforce is indeed higher than the actual aero on the real thing,
but i got lazy and didn't bother with stacking lips on the base model for hours till i could get exactly the right amount.
0-60 is slower than reality because the rear tires aren't wide enough,
and the Automation test driver needs a good lesson or two on how to properly launch a car.
Top speed is about dead on.
Lateral grip seems about right.
Fuel mileage is much closer than i thought i'd get it.
Weight distribution is indeed about 50/50 on the real car.
Actual car's weight is 3460 lbs. Didn't want to mess with weight distribution so i let it be.
Quarter mile time is a toss up. Some people can launch and shift a car flawlessly, some people can hardly get the car straight.
I forgot to put on the proper brakes before I took a pic. With the right brakes on, it stops dead at about 98', right on the dot to the real thing.
The Viper's Drag coefficient seems to vary between sources, so i can't say for sure if it's dead on.
Lastly, about the engine. I know the Viper's engine is a V-10 EFI OHV. The EFI wouldn't fit with 8.4 Litres, so i had to make due with Direct Injection.
The Viper's engine is, after all, just Chrysler's V-8 with 2 extra cylinders molded on.
All in all, my best effort. How do you guys think i did?
I can only post 3 attachments at a time it seems, so i will post the last 2 pictures containing the Stats and the Engine in a very quick follow up post. (I apologize for the "Double post")
