this looks like it may result in some builds that go unbelievably hard
To clarify: Should the chassis and engine family stay at the same quality level, or can we punch them out however we please up to +5 (in the engine family’s case, without triggering engine swap rules)?
Yes, I will allow that. As long as it doesn’t exceed +5 and meets all the other required rulings.
I know that name - it’s that of a character from Interstate '82, and she’s the sister of Groove Champion (the protagonist of this game and its predecessor, Interstate '76), whose other sister Jade was killed prior to the events of the previous game.
i couldn’t really find it in the OP, but if i were to do a widebody can i change the fender morphs in order to get wider tyres, or at least change wheel offset in ATS if not?
Yes, you are allowed to change morphs if you wish, and at no cost penalty. You are also allowed to use ATS to change the wheel offset but only if you have maxed out the offset on the engineering side and wish to go beyond that.
Sounds rather legit TBH, reshaping a body with fiberglass is a lot less work than doing it with sheetmetal.
LMJ DESIGN PRESENTS: THE CHEVROLET CORVETTE “PHANTASM”
To start with, on the outside we have updated the Vette with LED DRLs and turn signals, a cowl induction hood scoop, monowiper, camera mirrors and a suitable, yet eye-catching bodykit.
19- and 20 inch aero wheels both looks cool and ensures that the car stays planted to the road. Door handles? That’s a thing for the past, to give off an high tech vibe, the doors are now opened using a code lock.
For an even more high tech vibe, the car has LED taillights originally intended for a C5. A rear ducktail and diffusor even more ensures stability via aerodynamics at high speed. The choice of paint might sound a little bit unusual - a solid dark grey from the late 60s Volvo 140, with satin clearcoat. But combined with accents in pink and carbon fiber we thought that it gave off the right vibes - a sinister, yet high tech vehicle.
The leather and carbon fibre dashboard is inspired by the original, but has all the modern creature comforts. A racing pedal box, leather wrapped sports steering wheel and a gated shifter with a carbon fibre knob keeps you in control.
A half cage, racing harnesses, fire extinguisher and FIA approved seats? Sure, such safety measures might be good, but why? Well…
They are needed when you unleash the beast under the hood, a 700 hp 454" big block Chevy, charged with twin turbos. Mated to a six speed gearbox. Huge 4 wheel vented discs ensures that you can stop all that power, too. ESC, limited slip and launch control that you won’t transform all that power into smoking rubber, well, unless you want to of course. 1.13 G of cornering that you will stay on the road while using all of the horses. So, the Phantasm is really not only about looks - it can give modern day supercars a run for their money too!
