I have been getting back into enjoying the concept of the Sports/Muscle Trucks and I decided to try and have a little one-off comp if anyone was interested. I know there was a similar comp back with QFC13 but it has been about a year since that was held and there has been some new members that have turned up so now felt like as good of a time as any to give it another try.
The entrants must:
- Be between 1982 and 1992 Model, and up to 1992 Family
- Be a 1992 Trim and Variant
- Be a pickup/utility style of body
- Have a wheelbase of at least 2.75m (108’) or longer
- Use the default Techpool (+5)
- Use Regular Unleaded (RON 91/AKI 87)
- Meet the 1992 Gasmean Emission (WES 7) or better
- Have an as stated ‘Load Capacity’ rating of at least 1500kg (3300lbs)
- Attempt to meet a budget soft cap of $18,500 as displayed in the Detailed Stats
Period Aesthetics: These will be Sports/Muscle Trucks from the early 90s, and as such I am looking for a certain vibe that should hopefully be seen in the visual inspirations I share
Performance: These are, as the name suggests, meant to be more sporty versions of the base truck, so a combination of the stats in the performance tab as well as the drivability and sportiness stats will be looked at to determine performance
Purchase/Running Costs: These are meant to be halo trucks that most people could actually look to buy and use as more of an everyday vehicle with a bit more spirit and enthusiasm, preferably without burning a hole in the back pocket
Livability: If these are to be used like a daily driver, it should be easy to use day to day. This includes a combination of Drivability and Comfort, as well as l the overall usability that the truck has with practicality/utility and load rating
I’m just intending to have some simple, easy to get into fun so no heavy judgement.
These are mostly just for visual cues for what I am wanting to see, but if you have any ideas that aren’t shown here feel free to experiment
Once again, this is meant to be fairly easy going and nothing that should require a lot of going over before submission. As such I am not requiring everything to be ultra realistic or a complete interior, so the window opacity can be turned down to 0, just some fun builds that everyone can enjoy.
Also a quick thanks to @Lanson son whom partially inspired the revamp of this comp.
I’ll give until Sunday, the 10th to make any tweaks to the ruleset, then leave a couple of weeks until Christmas Eve (24th) for actual submissions. Hopefully I can have the judgement out before the New Year but we’ll see how it goes.
For the naming, I would like both the Model and Family to have STC - (username), and the trim and variant can be named however is liked.
Finally, have fun and
