Well i thought about something way more special
It looks damn good, doesn’t have to be special
Correction: the engine is a V6, not a V8, but it still has 4 valves/cylinder, and should be listed as a 24v unit (a V8 with 4-valve heads has a total of 32 valves). At any rate, it looks as fast as it goes.
Guess I overlooked that one. Thank you for pointing out.
@TheAgathaNakai Is it alright if I do a tuned version of your car? Using the name of my Revo Tuning and Engine Builders. Sort of like Brabus for Mercedes.
Sure! Just credit me when you’re done with the car. Would love to see it.
The Outlaw Bullet 427 reminds me of American low-volume specialist mid-engined supercars such as the Factory Five GTM, Mosler MT900 and Saleen S7. By subscribing to the old adage that there’s no replacement for displacement, and adding a pair of turbochargers for good measure, while preserving a relatively light, analog feel (even with semi-active dampers and active sway bars), it makes owners of more expensive (and typically European) exotics bite the bullet and realize that they may not be able to outrun the Bullet 427. And its exterior design is just stunning - you have made a 60s body look much more up-to-date for the mid-Noughties.
In fact, the Bullet 427 reminds me of the Carson 500 GT from Burnout Paradise more than anything else:
That car was described as “a true-blood racer’s car - low-tech, tricky to master, but devilishly quick if you’re good enough” - and it also applies to the Bullet 427 in spades.
Carson 500 GT happens to be one of my favorites from one of my favorite racing game, Burnout Paradise. And in all honesty I didn’t even think anything about it when designing this car.
Either way, thank you for the compliment.
Both cars now has come with the link to the BeamNG Drive mod, so if you want to drive it straight in the game without having to export the car first, you can simply click the link on each car posts I made.
Thank you for your attention and have a good day!
Is that the LS7? God I love the LS7 Engine so much!
The block is pretty much LS7, and it happens to be one of my favorite engines too.
I cam pleased to announce that I approve of - and recommend - the RWD FS. It looks like a shrunken TVR Griffith (the '90s one, to be precise) from the front, but friendlier.
What would I change about this car? Not much - but the engine has some untapped potential. A less restrictive exhaust, a higher redline, more aggressive cam timing, and tuning for 95 RON ought to make it come alive on the straights, just so the driver can enjoy the corners more. And with that extra power, an LSD might be a worthwhile upgrade.
And I get why it has a strut front and a semi-trailing arm rear (the latter to simulate rear struts) - it keeps costs down, especially as its engine is also cheap to produce.
Also, given that variable electric power steering is not available in 2009, variable hydraulic power steering is preferable in a performance car of that vintage due to the extra sportiness it provides, at the expense of a slight but acceptable drop in fuel economy.
Overall, as a lightweight, back-to-basics sports coupe with a modest power output, the RWD FS fulfills its role with ease.
It’s great for me to hear short review and suggestions on the car. Thank you so much!
With that being said, this week, I will reveal few modifications on this forum as a sign of appreciation for the car you guys have given. For tonight/tomorrow’s first modification of the FS, here’s a bit of clue of what it’s going to look like, or at least the inspiration behind it:
