Is this for the daily Autobahn run?
Just high enough that you could overtake on a highway
The rule set for this QFC is not only the polar opposite of that of the previous one, but also reminiscent of the one used for CSR160, albeit with some adjustments to reflect the earlier era this time around. Both are about small superminis and city cars, set somewhere in Europe during a major global economic recession (1992 for QFC40, 2009 for CSR160), with low cost caps ($9k here, not $13k as in CSR160).
In other words, use the wide plate fixture with all measurements set to 1.00.
This is to account for the fact that some of the body sets (or variants thereof) we can use for this round only have provision for a +2 rear row of seats at most. However, will opting for 3 doors over 5 doors make a difference for our client? The former costs and weighs less, but is less practical, than the latter arrangement.
Are very old car models discouraged in this challenge? Considering in the european market in 1992 the original Mini was still sold under the Rover badge, as was the Fiat 126p, and Citroen 2CV production had just ended 2 years ago at that point.
1992 Primus Urbano C
Sometimes, the car you want, is not the car you need. If you want cheap and reliable transportation, the new facelifted Urbano is your choice.
anyone wanna collab for engineering? i have a car but i pretty much suck with engineering at such a low price cap lol
@Koviico - DM me and let me know what sort of thing you’re thinking about.
Disclaimer: I’m not the best, but at least know what the various options do
It’s allowed as long as it is a 1992 trim.
On another note, practicality is now a 2 star priority.
That’s a great use of the '85 Mirage mod body. My only complaint is that it’s strictly 3-door only (which reduces practicality in addition to weight), but you’ve proven that this body set isn’t just for Kei cars anymore.
Since it’s a very budget-oriented round, I would like to ask about the use of negative quality. Are there any regulations or restrictions regarding the use of negative quality, or how far we can go with it without getting binned.
No limits for negative quality.
I usually don’t bin unless a car breaks a rule or has extreme cheesing.
The maximum wheelbase is set at 2.4m - is this after rounding, or 2.40m exactly? Also, what about a minimum wheelbase? I’m considering drawing the line at 2.2m, which is the lower end for contemporary city cars.
As you seem to have some interest in that body:
As Primus introduced the Advance compact in 1984, the second generation Urbano arrived in 1986 and switched from B to almost A segment, and became a 3 instead of a 5 door. Intended as a typical second car for the housewife or a car that was small, cheap and reliably getting groceries, also seniors were pleased. Who was not were the young ones looking for a first car, and therefore the 1992 facelift was quite radical to target that demographic group as well.
2.4m rounded maximum and no minimum wheelbase.
god i love yangwoo. can i marry a yangwoo?
