It's April 1st. So it's time for something stupid. Really stupid. Low effort too.
I won't even bother with a story, as this is legit too stupid to get one. But I will bother with a quick explanation. You know how our usual Autobeam challenge is about who can go the fastest, and who can build the best looking car? Well, for this challenge it's reversed!
But, there is a twist. You can't just build a car that can't move. There will be some speed requirements, so it will be a balancing act. The same thing goes for styling. The worse the car looks, the better. But, if its realistic, you'll get more points, and detail will too. So basically you can't build a 4hp lawnmower with 19 pop-up headlights and expect to get a high score.
So, there is some strategy. Which you choose, is your choice.
Anyways, it's time for the rules. Do i have to really explain more?
RULE 1: Before the car name, there must be the word SLO.
(SLO - Ford - Mustang for example, or any way you would like to do it. Just put SLO in front! I'll do it if you don't.)
RULE 2: The year of all sections of the car must be 2000.
RULE 3: The Techpool must be at the standard (+5 everywhere).
RULE 4: The quality of parts must be 0 or higher everywhere.
RULE 5: The car must be able to do at least 100kmh / 62mph in Automation.
RULE 6: The car must be able to accelerate to 100kmh / 62mph in under 60 seconds in Automation.
RULE 7: The car must be able to finish the tracks. If it can not, it is disqualified.
2 cars per person allowed!
NOTE: ANYTHING NOT IN THE RULES IS ALLOWED! THIS INCLUDED ADVANCED TRIM.
As said in the intro, the worse styling, the better! But, try to keep it realistic. A few real examples will be at the bottom of the post.
When designing the car, it is heavily recommended to use at least the bare necessary, such as headlights, taillights, etc.
It's really up to you though, and creativity is recommended just as much.
The tracks we will be going on are Hirochi Short and The Big 8.
The Big 8 has some really big hills, so make sure to make a car which can at least slightly move.
ENTERING + LINKS + MISC
The deadline for this challenge is the 9th of April (whatever time for you). This has been extended to the 11th.
The first video should come out the weekend after that, but that is not a guarantee.
You can send your car(s) in in any way, but of course discord and the forums are both the main ones.
The discord link is lower in the post if you would like that.
You can watch the videos on my channel, Djadania.
I'll try to give some commentary on the cars. Advice is a maybe due to the garbage i will be driving.
If you want to join the discord, here is the link.
Thank you for reading, and i will be eagerly (and fearfully) waiting on your entries!
