Is the upper bound of the displacement for road tax inclusive?
For example, if I have a 2.0L engine, will it be taxed $4100 or $4800?
It will be based on whether or not its 1999cc or 2000cc. If its the latter, it will be taxed $4800 and vice versa.
the safety limit is listed twice, at different values
what of your entry has less than 1000ccm
also the 55 driveability requirement makes it seem very difficult to NOT go FWD and/or automatic gearbox
Oops sorry fixed that on the question on engines less then 1L he doesnt want a Kei car… after all he has driven one and wants to switch also he isnt going for a hardcore sports car so 55 driveability is to prevent people from going overboard, after all, alternative sports. But ill consider lowering it down to 40.
Mr. Ryosuke does not want to go off-road at all, so 4x4 drivetrains most definitely should not be permitted - FWD, AWD and RWD setups will be fine, though.
ahahah oh yeah i should probably ban 4x4 thanks!
Just for reference, I found that 50 drivability was the maximum in terms of what I could achieve with what I thought was a decent car, but results will definitely vary between people.
Being a sports car, is there no minimum performance requirements?
Sure, it would probably affect sportiness to a very low level, but I guess one would not want it to reach 100 km/h in 70 seconds like my old Nissan 720 diesel…
Thats in the realism aspect in priorities, if it doesnt add it, it will be binned.
I was just asking, I actually prefer soft and somewhat vague limits sometimes, I just guess people wouldn’t like to be binned because it had 1 km/h too low top speed and reached 100 km/h 0.2 seconds too slow if nothing are said about performance requirements, so…
But I guess sportiness requirements takes away dead slow cars anyway.
Its pretty much free reign, but it must be justified or make sense, it doesnt have to be a 270km/h car but it must be decent enough and realistic for the engineering involved, but it is as said, engineering will only play a factor to a certain extent! So don’t worry about it too much.
One more thing: What exactly does this refer to?
If I am not mistaken, it means that race intakes/headers must not be used, nor can semi-slick tires or anything requiring a CNC shop (as titanium conrods and billet steel cranks do). But what about regular forged internals (which don’t need a CNC shop, just a forge works)? Can we use any of those as we please?
Yes as well as materials such as titanium and semi-slicks etc. Yes forged parts are allowed. As you said no CNC shops basically yes. Ill add it to the rules to clarify.
yeah but there is the marging INBETWEEN 660cc an 999cc.
technically not a Kei Car, yet apparently untaxed
there’s gonna be some people wanting to make a turbo 900cc MX5 to lower taxes
Figured I might as well ask before I submit and regret it, how does he feel about hatchbacks? Since we have anything from a Chevy Cavalier to an E46 I have no idea how a warm hatch would go down lol
Quick question about service costs, I know you said about it being a soft cap, so therefore would something like $1077 be ok if the car is able to achieve better in other categories such as overall cost. It’s just in all the cars I have tested so far I stuggle to get under 1000, although I have one or two more concepts to try.
Hatchbacks are an ok for him. He doesn’t prefer it much over sedans or coupes, but the added practicality will be a nice little bonus for him.
Yeah I’ll try to bring this up with Comet, i personally think $1000 might be a little too ridiculous so I’ll see if i can get him to raise it a bit.
Made some test mules of my own, $1000 still seems fine as a soft cap.
I haven’t had any issues with the service cost, even with a boxer engine with narrow sides and AWD when I tested it.
