TMCC34 - Triple Caution (CLOSED, REVIEWS PENDING)

I still have bad memories from the last time I attemped a livery…

Edit: Meh, have a super low effort ad too…

A 1985 Yamanto Okra TSOK. If you thought the TROL car was awful and low effort…


Putting something to fight…

“The 2nd generation of the Trustworthy 4WD from Japan”

Pleionia Leonia RX 1.8 Turbo GR.B.


(Above, Gravel Spec for '85 Olympus Rally
Below, Tarrmac Spec)


Powered by the latest DOHC Flat-4 with Turbocharger, transmitted via ATS4™ (Active Torque Split-4) which can adapt the power distribution between front and rear axle during hard acceleration, then revert back to 50/50 split for superior traction.

1985 Valiant Amigo Rallye Cup



Group B shouldn’t just be about turbocharged awd monsters. Privateers can enjoy performance and reliability in the 1600cc class with the Amigo from Valiant.

Another colour because black hides everything in this game

Originally developed as a collaboration between Bliss Autosport, subdivision of Bliss Auto Works (BAW), and Hermes Performance Group, the 1985 Hermes-BAW Dominion rally car was a formidable foe in its day on many dirt tracks. Each vehicle was made to order from consumer stock and professionally modified and hand-tuned to perfection. This model shown, while not an original Hermes-BAW, is a faithful and period-accurate recreation of the hot hatch that drove many great drivers to victory.

After realizing others share their technical details, too, I join the party. I think the Ares Group B is the fast monster to be beaten, it´s absolutely mental.

I also went for a more period correct rear wing. The one I used as dummy was… not fitting at all.

TGR Industries: 1985 Rancheau RcB 2.1

TGR industries produced 2 development designs prior to TMCC34, testing the two designs to determine whether or not their rally entry would utilize turbocharging. While many of the test drivers noted they preferred the smoothness and torque curve of an NA engine, turbocharging was chosen for lighter overall weight per hp.
The 2.1 variant is the vehicle developed specifically for TMCC34. It has a detuned version of the RLX engine powering the original variant. A lot of quality was added to various components within the build considering its use in a production television show.
The Rancheau RcB 2.1 enters the competition just on the edge of the design limitations with a 1785cc turbocharged engine and weighing in at 899kg.
The race prep team has been ribbed notably often about the livery presented on the car. The team did not have additional comments about the specific staff assigned to the design.

1985 Arnoc Nexus WRC
Arnoc took the big heavy V8 out and retuned nearly everything to create a true Group B monster, now with a 1.4L Turbo I4.



Coming to a rally near you.

*Model unavailable for purchase, this is a 1 of 12 race experimental trim only.

1985 Turból 4xAll Rallye Evolution II




A bespoke tube-frame rally machine produced by Turból during the height of the Group B era.


Info

In the early 1980s, Turból was introducing its “4xAll” all wheel drive system in the F4 sports car, with further implementation across the line planned. Increasing recognition of AWD as a viable system for sporting cars was a priority for Turból, who found the newly introduced Group B WRC regulations an excellent stage to do so.

Their first Group B vehicle would be based on the road-going F4. Though the AWD sports car was not completely unsuccessful, the wide, long, and relatively heavy V8 powered machine left Turból drivers with a fairly long list of complaints; the steeply raked windshield and low seating position created visibility issues, while the large footprint, long overhangs, and a lack of suspension travel made for a car poorly suited to conditions other than high speed tarmac events.

These issues and more would be addressed with the creation of the 4xAll Rallye. Like most of its Group B rivals, the 4xAll Rallye was a bespoke, tube frame machine with a midmounted and heavily turbocharged engine.

Packaging the mechanicals into the small chassis took some ingenuity. Just behind the cabin lies the engine, mounted backwards. The transmission was mounted just ahead of the engine, between the driver and co-driver, and the center viscous diff just ahead of that. The front and rear driveshafts ran down the direct center of the car, allowing the front and rear suspension the geometry for long control arms and copious suspension travel. To accomplish this, however, the engine and transmission were mounted slightly higher in the chassis, to allow the rear driveshaft to pass beneath them. The engine used would be a new variation of the Turból Boxer. The flat 4 had an inherently low center of gravity and had run successfully in DRM Group 5 in highly tuned 1.4 liter twin turbo layout, so the Group B engine would be closely based on that. Stroked back out to 1782cc, the engine produced ~360 hp in Evolution I form and ~450 hp in Evolution II form. The turbochargers were mounted forward of the rear wheels, with side vents above feeding each bank’s airbox and intercooler. These side vents were mounted to a top-hinged panel, which could be opened for easy access to the each side of the engine bay, and the rear aero tail panel could also be removed entirely for additional access. Extraction vents were placed behind the intercoolers for improve airflow and to reduce heat soak. Exhaust for each bank passed over the rear wheels to exit at the rear of the car. With no exhaust crossover, the true-dual twin-turbo boxer 4 made a very distinctive, guttural exhaust note. Radiators and oil coolers were mounted in the nose of the car to help improve weight balance, and a roof mounted scoop fed air to cool the rear differential.

Turból engineers faced the biggest hurdle in the 4xAll Rallye’s weight. Despite the use of a fully fiberglass body and lexan windows, the Evolution II tipped the scales at roughly 90kg greater than the target weight, but with the fast timeline of Group B development, any additional strategies for weight removal would need to wait for the Evolution III in the 1986 season.

Capable Motors Co.! The new 1985 Capable Amplitude R2!
0-100 km/h: 3.2 seconds
Cornering g's: 1.10
Top speed: 198.7 mph
Horsepower: 490.2
Turbo psi: 35.53
Info

Capable brings the awesome Amplitude R2 to the rally! This model is built off the built for homologation civilian Capable Amplitude Sport. This model includes the top of the line 4x4 system AWDeft, which Capable has introduced in its cars just 2 years ago. Capable’s engineers used their world-class 4x4 experts to improve the AWDeft even more!

For the fuel injection system, Capable Racing’s lead engineer, who is named Keith, used the tried and tested Bosch K - Jetronic mechanical system. Keith was worried about the electronics breaking, and if they did it would be very hard to fix. Keith is sure that our mechanical injection is superior to that of the competitors’ electronic fuel injection.

Among the other complicated systems, the R2 feature hydraulic power steering. This will make the car quicker on turns, adding to the ‘ease of driving’ philosophy espoused by CR’s engineering.

Also built into the entire car was the most advanced safety features ever seen in a race car. Capable has been a world leader in safety for decades and continues this lineage with a super crash-resistant chassis.

The Amplitude R2 is sure to get a podium finish with all these advantages!
