Welcome to the 1988 Mediocre Sports challenge!
Not every attempt at a sporty car in the 1980s was very fast or good. Instead of looking at the incredible sports cars and hot hatches from the 1980s, in this challenge you will try to create a car that looks, sounds and feels way more exciting and faster than it actually is.
Rule 1: This challenge is in the newest update (Open alpha). We know that this transition is fast but it does level out the field. In the advanced trim settings introduced in this version bans all experimental settings except engine placement and engine sound.
Rule 2: All body styles are allowed UNLESS if it gives too much of a classic or old look (60s LM car for example). It is really important to give your car a real 80s feel. If your car does not fit very well with this rule, it will be said and possibly your car could be banned. The same will happen when your car does not fit with the challenge at all.
Rule 3: As we want the cars to be, umm, not exactly super fast, the engine limits are very strict. The maximum size for NA engines (No turbo) is 1.5 liters. The maximum size for turbo engines is 1.0 liter. (If you want an exception to this rule, ask Djadania.)
Rule 4: Your car must be road legal/fit with the car. (At least standard 80s safety, at least 2 seats, at least basic cassette, catalytic converter, muffler, no racing parts, no semi slicks etc.)
Rule 5: The engine must use 91 Unleaded RON fuel, no DevMeth for you!
Rule 6: The price limit for all the cars is 18000. To make sure you can’t mess around too much the quality minimums and maxes are -1 and +1.
Rule 7: The car must be from 1988.
2 entries per person are allowed (You can enter 2 but you don’t have to).
Try to make your car look more exciting than it actually is, we don’t suggest meme cars but we do want something that makes you feel a little too excited.
Try to not make your car too hard to drive, as it may cause dnfs.
If you create something like a story or advertisement for your car, you might just get a bonus point. If you do, try to not make it too serious.
The deadline for this challenge is the 14th of January 1pm pst, to give you enough time. If any new mods release in this time which can help you, they are allowed. Round 1 will be streamed on the Brad_The_Inhaler twitch on the 14th of January 2:30pm pst and round 2 on January 16th 2:30pm pst.
We prefer that you send the cars on discord, but sending cars on the forum is also fine. Send the cars to Djadania for rulechecking. He will notify you if your car is illegal and any other reasons.
If you do find any massive loopholes that could ruin the whole competition, please notify Djadania.
