Greetings, petrolheads! This is my first ever tournament and I call it the Automation Super Go Karts. You may have seen jet-powered Go Karts before, but those things are hardly controllable. It is your job in this tournament to make a very light, but also highly powerful car (while, ideally, still remaining drivable).
[size=120]- Year: 2015[/size]
[size=120]- Your car must have at least 1hp/kg AND the weight has to be lower than 1000kg.
Your car has 1000hp and weighs 990kg → accepted
Your car has 1500hp and weighs 1100kg → not accepted[/size] because it weighs more than 1000kg
[size=120]Your car has 750hp and weighs 749.9kg → accepted
Your car has 650hp and weighs 800kg → not accepted[/size] because it doesn’t make 1hp/kg
[size=120]- Wheelbase shorter than 2.50 meters (98.4 inches)[/size]
[size=120]- All layouts allowed[/size] though MR is recommended
[size=120]- All materials allowed
Your car must make enough cooling for the engine, it’s summer in Europe and you don’t want your engine to overheat.
No Ultimate (100 RON) fuel. We’re gonna drive from track to track through a couple of different countries, and you can’t get 100 Octane fuel everywhere.
Race intakes allowed
Race exhausts allowed, as long as engine loudness is less than 75 (because of noise limits on the tracks).
Semi Slicks allowed. We’re about to race.
Must have 2010s safety (standard/advanced, though no restrictions to quality), just so you can point to the imprint saying “Airbag” on your steering wheel and glovebox in case you get pulled over.[/size]
[size=150]**- No restrictions on Quality (positive or negative), production units and costs
- ONE SUBMISSION PER USER. THE FIRST CAR YOU SEND ME WHICH FULFILLS ALL THE REQUIREMENTS AND DOESN’T HAVE A LOADING ERROR COUNTS.
Since there’s not a flying lap for every track in the game, your standing lap times will be the ones that count.
1st place ---- 15 points
2nd place ---- 12 points
3rd place ---- 10 points
4th place ---- 9 points
5th place ---- 8 points
6th place ---- 7 points
7th place ---- 6 points
8th place ---- 5 points
9th place ---- 4 points
10th place — 3 points
11th place — 2 points
12th place — 1 point
This scoreboard may be adjusted depending on how many entries I get.
[size=150]Submissions are open until Sunday, August 23rd 2015.[/size] The first two races will be on 29th and 30th of August because they are both in the UK, and the other three will be on September 4th-6th because they are relatively close to each other as well.
I will be participating myself with a reference car but since I made the rules myself, my entry’s results won’t count to keep the competition fair.
[size=150]I am using the Steam version of the game, so please make sure your client is updated. Mods are allowed, as long as they are available in the Steam Workshop.
Use the Export feature and send me the resulting zip folder, as it will automatically be saved as “YourName - CarName.zip”.[/size] But make sure your car is really saved under your desired name before exporting, the names don’t always save properly.
If you have any further questions, feel free to ask!
