The BRC is dead... [NEW CHALLENGE DISCUSSION]


#81

Here is my entry, the Legatum Elara R-Proto:


Exactly 1000kg and 290+ hp of pure awesomeness! :smiley:


#82

New video with a few smaller improvements and a first performance benchmark of your cars: Youtube Video

Feel free to send in revisions of your cars if you are not happy with the performance! :slight_smile:


#83

The video is marked as private D: I can’t see anything!


#84

Oops, fixed :slight_smile:


#85

YEAH. EAT THAT ENRY-

I mean, nice race! :stuck_out_tongue: Looks like many of us pitched our economy to last an entire 50 lap race, and Norman’s AWD system proved quite advantageous. I think I will work on some tweaks (or a total change of approach), in anticipation for the change!


#86

Wow… good test for the Znopresk Zenith X
I was the only one with AWD system?


#87

Team “Brotzeit” is taking it slowly and does not care for competition. We are here to chew gum and test tire compositions. Wait, we are all out of gum… :cry:


#88

So THAT’s what it looks like to be so far down the charts in car quality! :open_mouth: Not a pretty sight at all… No idea what I’m doing wrong though (other than setup and/or going NA instead of turbo)

I think it’s less economy-minded entries and more that it’s just really hard to end up with terrible fuel economy if you build a well-tuned naturally-aspirated car.

If it makes you feel better, the car that finished just in front of you was FWD.

(Probably a combination of having a bigger, heavier car than everybody else combined with less optimal setup.)


#90

Yeah you’re right. That said, I deliberately didn’t enrich the fuel mix that much to keep the numbers slightly down, though it doesn’t seem to have made that much of a difference even when I decided to max out the engine tune just to see what happens. I think my car’s going to actually end up weaker :stuck_out_tongue:

I ran a RWD so, having been beaten by a FWD, I think I deserve a Picard facepalm for letting the traditionalists down… :stuck_out_tongue:


#92

Nice simulation. :slight_smile:

I’m using AWD as well. But probably i will need more POWAAAA…


I fell from 2nd to 8th place. So Der Bayer, what happened? Was it due to B.R.O.B.O.T? :stuck_out_tongue:


#93

8bs: you’re running 50-60hp less than some of us. If I had started from the front row and not the sixth, I may have had a sniff at Norman! But his pace was so consistently quick I doubt the overall result would have changed. That being said, battling through places presumably costs time and tyres, so I was very chuffed to see my test car fight all the way through the ranks!

[size=150]Mars Engineering enters the Testing, with the ME Ottanta.

DAMN YOU HORSEGUY!

Just kidding mate, it was amusing to watch my little white V8 powered dot in an actual fight :smiley:
I’m revising the car right now. I’m hoping to catch up to Norman’s rocket powered monster, if that is even possible.
Also, i use AWD too. :mrgreen:


#96

I prepared a little racer, too. Going the oldschool way: RWD.

#97

Damn, this stuff is interesting :smiley:

Well, here’s my car for the testing, hopefully it’s any good, going AWD as usual.



#98

What kind of times were you guys getting in game for those times in Der bayer’s video? With my various 80% done cars I’m struggling to get below 2:20, and I highly doubt that a slightly rolling start will make up the time difference between the first lap times


#99

I was getting around 2:21, my new version is 2.5 seconds faster :ugeek:


#100

From Rennen Automotive, the brand-new successor to the Rennen Monzon, the Angelus! With 214 HP, a screaming redline of 8700, and RWD, this should be a fun race!

Special note: We are sending in a fully road-legal production model of the car, and not a race-tuned or sports version. This is the one you can buy at your local dealership.
