Does a large Rhania SUV fit the bill?
even if i was a dad with a family of 3 and a dog living in a largely car dependent area, i’d rather walk
The Rhania behind you:
if you cant use spoilers, i will make a custom non functional spoiler
That is perfectly fine. This class of cars would occasionally have those for style reasons, rather than for downforce.
Are turbochargers expected??
Why do emissions have to be green in all years and not just up to 1997?
So cool that it’s even scary to participate
others peoples will make a car much better than yours?
No, I meant the task is difficult, so it’s quite difficult to enter
Because 1) japan is strict on emissions and 2) the challenge is in 1998. having the emissions only good until 1997 would be useless, and most cars should be futureproofed against rising emissions regs
This prevents their use for both aesthetic and performance purposes; however, using body moldings to simulate spoilers (usually ducktails) and side skirts is fine.
I read that as a maximum displacement of exactly 2000cc, and not 2000cc after rounding to the nearest 100cc.
Why is this listed twice? The second time it’s mentioned should be changed to “no semi-slick tires”.
And should there be an absolute maximum power limit for non-kei cars? If so, 100-120 horsepower would be an appropriate ceiling.
I’m assuming this refers to a hard and exact 2.30m maximum limit, instead of the wheelbase rounded to the nearest 0.1m (which would lead to the actual maximum wheelbase being 2.34m).
For cars that are from the wrong era, imagine an equivalent of them from 1998; if they’re too powerful, think of a less powerful version.
That was an oversight on my part. Sometimes copying and pasting things leads to duplicates.
No. It refers to any body set that is labeled as 2.3 m being valid in this case. This is to allow for rounding on account of Unreal Engine being weird for body creators.
This shouldn’t be necessary. leaving it open allows for cars that don’t go the superlight route but still have similar performance to be entered.
its not restricted as LHC
Actually back then their standards weren’t really strict when it comes to just the limits - maybe their test cycle caused them to be so, but it’s hard to tell. Anyway, the 2000 standard, replaced in 2005 (so with a huge margin for the challenge) required:
CO: <0,67 g/km
HC: <0,08 g/km
NOx: <0,08 g/km
There were also additional levels that gave tax benefits to the users of such cars, and those lowered the HC and NOx values to 0,06, 0,04 or 0,02 g/km.
That makes sense, however it’s easier to go off of what the game uses and what the thresholds there are instead of checking extra 3 datapoints per car.
Well of course, but maybe the latest one isn’t the most accurate in reflecting that? TBH I’m not sure, as I don’t remember their values, but I guess it could be so. Just sth IMO worth checking.
Following up on emissions:
The new system introduces three different ways to interpret emissions. Headline figures, WES levels and passrate.
Headline figures are the raw quantity of each pollutant you put out per km, measured in grams or milligrams.
WES levels are intermediate value similar to EURO 1/2/3/4/5 targets or the EPA’s own levels.
Passrates are, as far as I can tell, the worst of your three emissions as mentioned against Gasmea’s standards when you measure the car using the WLTP Class 3 method. A 200% passrate means half the maximum HC, CO and NOx.
Fruinia begins mandating WES11 in 2005, for reference, and they are the first to do so… But you can see if a car passes WES11 from at 1995 onwards. Gasmea, meanwhile, requires WES10 in 2005.
Hshan’s figures are averages. The actual numbers, according to this source, final table, are 1.27 g/km of CO, 0.17 g/km of HC and 0.17 g/km of NOx. That’s about WES 9.5, so to speak.
Now, it’s worth noting that there are two different panes which can show green in all categories:
The engine pane’s emissions results. These are not what you should care about, but they are useful as they show which pollutant you need to deal with. Also, they depend on the attributes of the car, like weight, aero and gearing.
The fuel economy tab in detailed stats. These determine legality.
TLDR: The rules are correct, if a little bit indirect. These two images are from the same car. Your passrate in 2005 is your passrate against WES 10 standards - which coincidentally line up to be just a little more stringent than IRL Japan, but not by much.
One big thing to notify…
After I’ve seen you screenshot, it is the beta “Elisbury” one.
I’d suggest to have optional condition or base line rules based on the stable version, not rely on the latest beta for the sake of fairness.
In that case you can set the total emission no more than xxxx amount.
