And again, this should be the first challenge of the year again! At least for me it is. I’ll quickly try to fix the red parts in the post. I’ll try to respond to stuff as fast as i can!
Not just the trim and variant, but also the model and family years must be set to 1982.
Will a catalytic converter of any kind be required, and if so, which ones?
I disagree with the year bieng 1982. If its beaters, why would people enter brand new cars?
To catalytic converters, no. They are not required, these are not road legal cars.
To 1982, i don’t really have something to say against that. Yes, it is indeed slightly weird. Lets say that all cars have been in some sort of accident. Btw, the name of the challenge was made after we wrote everything. It was also partially generated by an AI (We do not have the budget to use our brains).
You can blame me on this one!
ah so it isnt actual Beaters, its just cheap ass shitboxes going racing
Basically that, yeah. Not exactly always shitboxes, you can also enter an F1 car if you want to. Just not with F1 performance.
I smell kit car
Is it just me or do rule one and three contradict eachother? You mention in rule one that the miniumum quality is -3 but you also say in rule three that everything must be at plus five.
Quality and Techpool are seperate things.
I was thinking about something. Should i be allowed to test my own cars before the challenge, or do i drive it for the first time for the challenge?
I dare someone to make a Neco Arc car. If you do, you will get an automatic 10 on styling.
what circuits will Jerry be racing in? besides being asphalt, I mean LeMans is quite different from ATT short or Hirochi
As a sometimes host myself, since you are aware of how the cars will be tested and what type of car the driver(you) prefers, I think that you are at an unfair advantage over the rest. So If I were you I would not enter my own cars. I could run them and show them nevertheless but not compete directly with the rest.
I wont exactly say, but it should be mainly medium speed. Hirochi short is a guarantee, so keep that in mind. The others will be basically randomly picked (from a reasonable selection of tracks that these cars can properly use).
To be fair, i dont really know what i prefer. Im gonna be driving on wheel ive never driven beam on after all. Is it fair if i just dont test my cars beforehand? Then i will have no idea. Or i can enter them, but not actually put them in the positions.
Alright, will do. Unless it really doesnt go well. No point in not putting them if i finish last after all.
one thing not addressed in the rules is the amount of aero. as it stands one can make loads of hidden wings ending up with unrealistic downforce for the looks of the car(even though the 80’s were quite lenient on that aspect)
Oh yeah, i’ll add a “No Stacked Wings” thing. Anything past that is fine, just put a bunch of wings on if you want. You can build anything you want next to that. I know its kinda unfair, but this isnt the most serious of challenges after all. (Rule 13: No stacked/hidden wings! I also prefer if you don’t go too far with the wings, but that’s your choice.)
