Go wild. My rationale for including an ostensibly contradictory set of clauses is that WRC cars had mandatory safety including roll cages but were also able to go to extraordinary lengths to reduce weight towards the minimum. However physics only goes so far and if you pick an overly large body you’re stuck with it!
A bit of both but more the former than the latter. Certainly it would be impossible to match the claimed >500Nm at 3500rpm with the restrictions I’ve given.
I can however reassure you that given my testing so far, the exact number figures is only a small piece of the puzzle. I have tested entries with barely 300hp and entries over 350hp and with a combination of other factors everything came into play and peak power definitely isn’t the deciding factor.
I just included that real life guide to cluster the entries up a bit because I already know from experience what works.
A bit absolute, a bit contextual. You’re going to have to guess a bit here because it depends on what your competition does. Just like how you’re technically not supposed to spy on your competitors.
I won’t give you a number but I will generally remind everyone I’m shaking the cars down on a 50% gravel 50% tarmac circuit. The road part is a decent road. The gravel part has some technical bits and a couple of jumps. Low ride heights are better for road and high ride heights are better for the jumps and bumps. It’ll balance out… Within reason.
How many lips do you have on that thing
In this case I am not hugely fussed about the trim reliability (I am quite interested in the engine). But in this case I might just go off your plain trim for the stats just so other dependent stats aren’t stuffed.
