MOOOOOM, IT’S A RACECAR, IT NEEDS RACE TYRES AND RACE FUEL
The topic of this post will be racecars. I made a couple, mainly for challenges. So let’s take a look.
Maler 42F TC
This car was made for the Automation Gamer Challenge (round 6). The aim of this challenge was to make a cheap touring car from 2020, and well I did.
I normally don’t make modern cars so this was an gigantic challenge for me. Luckily I knew what made a car modern: A N G E R Y and B I G S U C C. I did that and well, it looks like a five fixture wonder and really un-inspired. I also didn’t add a livery because the dumbass that I am thought that the players from the game would have to make their own team livery like in Grid. facepalm
Jin Hakone GT300
Another car, another challenge. This time it was Automotiveflux’s JGTC challenge. I entered a car in the GT300 category, this category didn’t have drivetrain restrictions like the RWD-only GT2/GT1. The smart thing to do would be to enter an AWD car, right? Of course I ignored that and entered an outdated mid-90’s RWD car. The outcome was predictable with one of the slower times set in that event. It did end up fifth in the vote for the GT300 cars though.
The design itself was, again, relatively simple but it definitely had potential. That’s why I used it as a basis for a design that I made later on. Also, I had a livery this time. It was slightly inspired by the ADVAN livery.
Jin Sakurasou GT-Homage
This car was made for a challenge by TwinTurBros. We needed to make Espace F1 inspired vehicles. So I made a van that paid tribute to the car above. However, it didn’t get a lame 4 cylinder turbo, it got a V6 twin turbo. It was fast… really fast, also pretty bouncy… The rear was decent, but the front was actually pretty good. That’s why I took absolutely no pictures of it. facepalm
Nero Farfalle 1400
This time we take it offroad with the Garcian Small Capacity Rally. The design on itself is, once again, simple (especially the rear, I’m actually embarresed of it) but this time I did add a few cool details around the car: places where a bumper once was have little holes to indicate that it was indeed there and I’ve also made a replica of a rally plaque on the bonnet.
Weber C28 GT3 Turbo
This racecar was designed for the Racing Showdown Advanced. According to the lore of my character it was an upgraded version of a car that ran (in front of her) in the GT3 class around 2004. I wanted to make a car inspired by the Ferrari 575 GT3, something hot-headed and spontanious (to fit her character), yet it had to be German because of the lore, the latter took the upperhand. It looks very ‘German’ but the driving feel should be somewhat hot-headed atleast.
Another challenge from TwinTurBros was a dakar challenge. So naturally I’ve have big pink SUV. The car was inspired by the Mitsubishi and VW from around 2007. The latter can mainly be seen on the rear end. It took some time, but I’m really happy with this. (if only I wasn’t that lazy with the livery, or rather the lack of… T^T)
Racecars aren’t my strong point…
Maler 42F TC: 3/10, it looks as empty as my cup of tea, however it was a good moment of learning.
Jin Hakone GT300: 7/10, the first time I made a proper racecar, I much prefer the updated version though.
Jin Sakurasou GT-H: 7/10, it’s stupid, I love it
Nero Farfalle 1400: 7/10 (for anything but the rear), I looks like an authentic racecar, the rear deserves a 0/10.
Weber C28 GT3 Turbo: 6,7/10, BIG. GERMAN. BOAT.
Jin Kirimancharo: 7,5/10, why didn’t I make a livery?
