Welcome to the Elenir’s Automation/Beamng challenge series. I’ll be trying to host some more out there challenges, some that will test your skills besides racing and engineering, others that will turn the way you drive upside down (Maybe even literally). Just a bit of variety for those who enjoy beamng racing and timetrials.
Without anything else to add, let’s go to the first event, a barnfind time trial
The 1980s gave rise to tuner and street racing legends. An era where nimble sports cars were on the rise. Within this context the Susayata Actoma was born. A joint german-japanese enterprise. “German engine, japanese cars” was the motto of the short lived Susayata company. Horrible handling, horrible suspension tuning, horrible engine, horrible everything meant that within 2 years this model was killed, and whatever stock was left was dumped in a desert in north africa.
Years later, you find this supposed golden land of Susayatas, one objective is in your mind, to race this piece of junk.
Engine family and car model cannot be edited
Family and model year 1985
Engine variant rules
Must use a three way catalytic converter
Maximum engineering time 85
Fuel type premium 95
Max piston, conrod and crank stress 5%
No quality sliders over 1
No quality slider over 0
Approximate cost max 11500
1 wing fixture allowed, must be visible (No transparent material or placement inside car body)
Indicators, front grill, light assemblies and door handles cannot be removed or made invisible, though their materials can be changed. Front headlights may be “smoked” though their shape must remain if doing so.
Modifying anything else is fair game, go wild (Do remember to remove the rust.)
Scoring will have 2 categories
Styling will be done by a community poll
Racing will be scored by the lowest recorded time in the Gull coast Main road circuit, 2 laps, no rolling start (In case it isn’t obvious, you must use the same car as the one you’ll send)
Positioning in the previous 2 categories will be averaged, whoever ends with the higher average position wins. In case a tie in the average position scoring, the lowest time in the racing category will win
Please remember to clone the Susayata car before editing it.
Car model name must be Susayata+participant name
Engine family name must be old 1984+participant name
Send me your .car file, a picture or two of your car to be used for the design ranking(you may also post said picture in the forum post) and the lap video link. Use the forum messages.
Lap must be recorded in beamng and sent to me through a google drive link. Video must start during the initial countdown and end after time is shown on screen. Race conditions must be normal (No fastforward, lowered gravity). It is encouraged, but not required, that at some point in the video the entire car can be seen.
DEADLINE WILL BE THE 11TH OF JULY (don’t worry about timezone, just make sure you’ve sent it by around that date)
Thanks for reading and good luck to you racers.
