got something going MR turbo gang
Here is my car that i submitted to Strop while back. It has a 2.4L i4 producing 150HP, it is RWD, Weights 1100KG, has a standard interior and only costs around 8500$.
Based on its success as a pure lightweight track toy, it was inevitable that the 1991 900SE would receive a worthy successor. The 950QD, however, would not be it; instead the model was an attempt to broaden the brand’s appeal and entice those with more demand for practicality. Featuring a 2+2 configuration and enhanced boot space, the inspiration was clear: Quaque Die, that is, Every Day.
Despite having largely the same floorpan and 2190 mm wheelbase, the car featured plenty to be excited about: an all-new 1.7 liter turbocharged powerplant helped mitigate the 80 kilos it put on, while the widened rims, rear disc brakes, and full-fledged ESC kept it firmly under control. The numbers spoke for themselves: 162 hp at the crank propelled 973 kilograms into corners at 1.11 Gs through a 5-speed manual, driving strictly the rear wheels only. The car did the 0-100 sprint in 6.3 seconds, and the quarter mile in 14.7, up to the e-limited top speed of 210 km/h.
It’s hard to imagine living seriously with the 950QD however: the enhanced boot was still pitiful, the plain and plastic-y interior was more cramped than ever, and the suspension would definitely shake your fillings out on a less than pristine city road. While the mileage was excellent, the maintenance costs made it less than desirable, even more so with the aggressive markup on the sub-$10k production costs. The car was a commercial failure, in which the marginal safety features also played part, and only 5000 were ever produced and sold; the design and tooling were not much later recycled for the proper deal, the 950SE. It has been more sought after since however: they largely survived thanks to the better rustproofing, so toss the useless weight out, maybe the successor’s larger engine in, and you’ve got quite a capable machine.

It seems to be the perfect rival for my car.
Presenting the 1987 Basumai TX7 B6
The 1987 Basumai TX7 B6 is made to fill a niche in-between a full-budget I4 sports car and an expensive sports car, with its 2.5L 145 HP B6 this TX7 goes from 0-60 mph in under 7 seconds while still getting a respectable 19.7 MPG, considering its speed. At roughly 10k at 0% markup, it may not be the cheapest option, but its great handling and impressive acceleration is sure to impress.
1992 Mitsushita Jesta Baleno TCS
1.8-litre 4 Cylinder, 175hp, 960kg, 0-100km/h 6.3 seconds, top speed 225km/h, 1.10g cornering, 8.8l/100km, Torsen Diff, 9,700$.
1988 Armor Cricket GT4. A little on the expensive side ($10,300) but it’s dialed in pretty well I think.
I now have downloaded and exported entries from:
*pending revision for either retune or rule violation.
Initial testing is mostly up to date. This is obviously quite a few entries so the format will be as follows:
- There will be a table for the basic stats. They are only a rough guide as some of you decided to use medium tyres instead of sport which affects overall grip significantly, so there will be quite a bit of mismatch between power to weight ratios and track times.
- Then I’ll have a text comment for various aspects for each car. The majority of the cars will have a 30-50s long video vignette in which I explain the essential strengths/weaknesses of the car.
- However my five favourite cars to drive will get a more indepth review with much more explanation.
That’s really all there is to it. Keep in mind (I’m not sure if I was clear enough) that there are three “sets” of criteria i.e. think of it as 3 different people with different emphasis, and there’s no right or wrong answer as to who you would gear towards (the only wrong answer is “none of them”). For more info refer to the OP.
