Welcome to the future from the past challenge! In this challenge, you will be creating a (concept) car from the year 1985 that shows what they thought that the year 2000 would be like. Concept cars can be normal, exciting, and ugly. In this challenge, we want the weird but exciting and partially conventional. Be creative and crazy, but still make the cars technically producible.
This wont be easy, but with some effort its possible.
Rule 1: This challenge is happening into the newest version of automation (open alpha/beta), 4.2.
Rule 2: First let me bring up some stuff said before. The car must be from 1985 and must be a look into the future from then. Meme cars are partially allowed but don’t make them too ridiculous.
Rule 3: The price limit is 27000. That might sound easy, but later rules will show that its not that easy. As these cars are concept cars and are not super low or high quality, the quality of parts can either be 0 or +1.
Rule 4: As these cars of the future, they need some futuristic engines, in which i mean TURBOS YEAHHH! Sorry, got a little too excited there. Anyways, the maximum engine size is 1.5 liter and the engines MUST be turbocharged. The engine must use 95 RON fuel. Do your best on turbo tuning as it might be difficult.
By the way, do not use intercoolers below 0, as they are currently broken.
Rule 5: Your car must be road legal/fit with the challenge. (At least 2 mufflers, must have power steering, must have at least premium seats and premium cassette, must have ABS, must have advanced 80s safety, no semi slicks, must have a catalytic converter, at least 2 full seats etc.)
Rule 6: Your car MUST use either air suspension or hydropneumatic suspension. You know, “THE FUTURE”.
Rule 7: No advanced trim settings are allowed EXCEPT making stuff invisible, chassis tunnel size and engine position. NOTE: Please do not put your engine in fake positions, such as a front-engined car having the engine visually in the back.
Rule 8: All bodies are allowed EXCEPT stuff like open wheelers and LM cars. Any other unfair bodies/mods will also be banned if any are released.
Rule 9: Have fun, and if you find any massive loopholes message me so i can possibly change the rules.
2 Entrants per person are allowed. Certain exceptions are allowed if you are creating a car for someone else.
We prefer FWD and AWD for this challenge, as these suspension layouts can otherwise be difficult to drive. 4x4 and RWD are allowed but you have to make them easily drivable.
Make your car advanced, we like that for this challenge.
Make it look special, something you wont see anywhere else. Eye-catching. Something that’s really memorable in this competition, even compared to other cars. You do have to make it at least slightly attractive and at least a little normal though.
If you make a writeup or ad for your car, you might get up to 3 bonus points. Post these publicly in the comments of this challenge.
The challenge will be streamed on Twitch.
The deadline for this challenge is the 6th of February at 12 pm PST.
Round 1 is on Friday the 6th of February at 2pm PST, Round 2 is on Sunday the 9th of February at PST, and a possible round 3 is on Wednesday the 12th of February.
Send the cars to Djadania on discord (DM) or send them in a private post on the forums so he can rulecheck them.
If you have suggestions for rule changes, message me.
You can find me on Brad’s discord: Brad Lee Garage.
Remember to ask questions, and again, have fun!
IMPORTANT: Due to technical issues the times for stream and deadline might be changed.
