well, thanks to @NormanVauxhall i won’t be last
Mole Tuning are on their way, we’re just a tad late. Traffic’s bad when you’re crossing a continent.
Sounds like I need to hang the Serenity’s mighty V6 on the 9000 RPM rev limiter to get some respect in the pits. I may not have a ton of power, but I can at least claim I have the most powerful minivan here.
fuck, I think I missed the deadline
Not at the time of posting no. Now you have.
Nope, if you read this
it says within two hours of that post… I submitted my car a couple of minutes after two hours ticked over
Whoops, wrong link pasted. Will fix
You may create a poll, but speed is king on the days’ menu, not the looks. HOWEVER, some of these cars might get production bodykits styled similarly, which would reflect on sales. It might be valuable if you’re going RPG in your company thread.
I can honestly say, no matter how this one turns out for me, I’ll be back for the next one. Even somewhat know what car I’d take.
And just out of an in-lore style of statement, I can guarantee the Storm team is going to go through the most transmission fluid of everyone here. Every race, we’re coming in afterward to pull the belt and drain 12 quarts of transmission fluid for a full system flush. After all, you’ll be able to hear that poor belt screaming the entire way around the track.
made way too much power in my car. pushing near-900hp is a bad idea when the car is 1400kg, RWD and only has 245s in the rear… plus I didn’t get time to tune suspension whatsoever. I’m getting a strong feeling N/A is the way to go since turbo’s make shit so undrivable
Just so you know, we’re doing calculations as we speak. I will have all of the laptimes today. I will also not share them all today… probably…just to torture you guys a bit. I think I should release them slowly, painfully.
I’m fine with that. Gives me some time to reflect on my choice for this round and to puzzle over my three or four choices for the next round. So far I’ve decided on 3 vehicles that fit the following categories:
Storm’s worst-car-ever-made as a joke entry, though it might possibly be able to make some power.
Something from my lineup that’d be more expected, though it wouldn’t look like it.
Something saddled with an automatic, but also mated to the same engine in the Envy.
And if it includes '96 in the lineup, I get an additional choice to decide on.
But I might be over-planning this just a little. Though I haven’t started making prototypes, just going by what I have in my company thread.
Did you know? We’re going to have engine swap options for the next season
Didn’t know that, but it opens up some ideas. Means some of my ideas could be more practical than I thought.
The kicker is - you will be only able to chose from available engines, ones I will link to. This will represent the “go-to” swaps, like 2jz, ls-series etc etc. No exclusive stuff, no custom engines.
#ALSO, The first results are in. BUS ISN’T SLOWEST
mine must be
Doriftu missile by SkidCross is accepted and came into mid field! Uhhhh!
I cherish this one! Cheers @Deskyx
Gotta admit, I’m surprised to see that despite the Serenity’s best efforts to pull off a last place, the obnoxiously loud and bright yellow minivan pulled one off. Who knows, maybe the dual straight-pipes and the doubled-up rear wings will help with low speed cornering, and a lack of turbo lag could help it.
Ah, who am I kidding? Performed about as I expected the Serenity to do. Time to change a belt and some transmission fluid, because I’m sure that belt could be heard over the straight-pipes.
5th place for the oldest car in the competition
“How’s the setup?”
“Torque-steer. Just torque-steer. I touch the throttle, and she tries to make for the nearest hedge. And it’s super twitchy into corners. And it’s on slicks. Who’s idea was that, by the way?”
I seem to have a knack for making mediocre cars… But since I used a Bogliq version of a Toyota Soarer as a starting base, maybe mediocre ain’t so bad after all!
