What is this?
This is a new review series I am working on in the style of Top Gear power tests. This will feature a review of one car an episode and a lap time of that car.
What’s it called?
Good question! Not sure yet. Feel free to suggest names for this, but please don’t make it some obvious knock off of Top Gear if you do suggest a name.
What cars will you be reviewing?
Primarily sports and performance cars, although luxury and economy cars aren’t off limits if you think they are interesting enough. I would also prefer more modern cars, that would be on sale today in 2018, but will allow exceptions for special or classic cars.
Cars with abnormally high engineering time and production units with quality spam are allowed, but will be treated as concept cars. Feel free to make up a price for this, as obviously the price wouldn’t be too accurate in game.
Rivalries between companies is also encouraged, and multicar reviews are possible.
If I feel your company is worthy, I may also send a secret challenge your way for a large scale test between several companies.
How do we send them?
Two choices. Either you DM me the car file either here or on Discord (Username is BoostandEthanol#5298), or you can include it in a car submission post.
What is a car submission post?
This is where you give me key info for your car. I will not be checking performance stats in the Automation car designer, instead using the info you give me along with some tests myself. I will be checking the designer for things I am unable to test or see, such as the number of seats or interior.
What kind of key info should I include?
You can include as much or as little as you’d like. If you wanted to you could leave little to no information.
Some information that you probably should include is power, torque, price (including a realistic markup), acceleration, and top speed. Bear in mind I am British, and while I can convert units it saves me some hassle if you do it beforehand (I use hp, lbs-ft, £, MPH).
Feel free to also specify a location to test (include links if it’s a mod), or specify tests if you want. You could also supply rival cars if you’d like to prove your superiority over the competition.
You could also lie about your stats, or tune the car I get specifically for the review if you want to start a Ferrari style scandal.
What about lap times?
Each car will be give a lap of a test track by someone else. He wants to be called The Git, so we’ll go with that. He is a much faster and more consistent driver than me, and will also supply a professional perspective of the car as a racing driver.
Why haven’t you mentioned anything else?
Because I probably forgot. Please ask away anything I haven’t made clear below.
For any review car, set the model name as Review - [Name you want to be credited as] then set the trim to the car’s full name
