Quotex' Design Challenge - Round 1 - "Back to basics" [FIRST IMPRESSIONS PART 3 OUT NOW!]


#29

You’re right, a lot of the cars around this period did start to introduce mechanical fuel injection around this time, but it was still often only found on the higher end trim levels.

The Audi 80 1.6CL that I used as an example uses a EA827 1588cc engine that was offered with K-Jetronic, but only on the Golf and Scirocco GTI models that also used it.

The Citroën BX, let’s take it’s 1.6 for comparison as 1.6 sits right in the mid range of the allowed displacement. was also offered with Fuel injection, but only on the 16 TRi trim and not on the cheaper 16 TRS trim.

The Carina and the BMW E21, Carbed as well.

I will go in-game for a bit and do some testing with Mechanical Fuel Injection. I may raise the allowed PU for the engine slightly, but not a lot.

Yes that’s right in the middle of what is allowed, I’ve given a bit of flexibility in the wheelbases so that a lot more bodies can be used, it doesn’t have to be a textbook definition of a D-segment car, if you enter a very large C-segment or a very small E-segment car that fit within the budget of the challenge, then those will be accepted as well.

As for 6-Cylinders, I’m afraid that’s a bit outside of the scope for what is to be expected in this price range. You’ll either have to sacrifice quality or cylinders.

The production units don’t change a lot with the different fueling types. I’m under 20 with carbs and spi and mpefi are under 21


#31

I believe Mechanical Fuel Injection was the more labor-intensive one, not sure though, i’m loading the game up right now.


#32

The engine Problem has been resolved (See above) The six cylinder is just for A. personal Preferance and B. The brand is rather biased toward six cylinder engines…
and i have managed to get it all within the perameters of your restrictions on … everything (i think) . i just have some fine tuning to do and then to make an advert and all the related gubbins and all so it should be fine for now


#34

Yeah, I’m probably going to submit a large C segment car (well, perhaps more “spacious” than large in the exterior), and maybe use MPEFI.


#36

Mine was 21.6 with injection, all forged and dual reverse flows and cat at 2.2L


#38

I4 for me


#40

I was using Mech injection but it pushed up PU and cost so I dropped it in favour of SPEFI


#42

I would have gone a bit quirky with a V4 personally if that was an option, I know a V6 would push costs etc up, but I think it’d work better than an I6


#43


Sneak preview of mine, dodgy wrapping of the back light but meh.


#45

Yours is a lot more smooth and responsive than mine but mines a lot quieter and more refined, might try an I5 2.2


#47

I’m making refinements for now but I will when I’m done


#48


There’s my I5 curve, I’ve seen better but I’ve seen worse.


#49

and My six is of the ‘good mid range torque’ veriety


#50

Yours is 3200RPMs mines a bit lower but still similar torque, yours has a higher RPM cap than mine and a bit more power, whats your 0-100/0-62?


#52

10.9 on mine, was 11 before I did a bit of fiddling with the ignition timing and cam profile


#53

What’s you 80-120 time? (What I call the lorry overtake time)


#55

But mines quieter that tiny bit lighter and a fair chunk cheaper, my overtake time is 8.04, ours are fairly comparable engines tho.


#57

I’m editing mine a bit now cause just seen my emissions at 2k :zipper_mouth_face:


#59

I had a two-way on…
