Is a detailed interior mandatory? Also, in this day and age, I’d expect the catalytic converter to be a three-way unit of some kind.
there is no requirement for an interior.
Is there a limit on something like wings? Are we allowed one in front and one in back, or just one wherever?
Just keep it reasonable and realistic. If it’s obviously cheesed to shit, it’ll get a swift bonke
Do this challenge allows V16 engines on entries?
posted march 15th
Trying to flush out those pesky time travellers.
I understand that not everyone has a key, so I don’t think V16s are allowed here.
Anyway, are there any restrictions on advanced trim settings?
Just two seaters or does the Racing Experience have multi-seat rides around the track? 4 seats like an M5 or AMG Black? Or more seats? Example on the Nurburgring it is not uncommon to see multi-seat highly modified and motivated vans out there… there’s even one with a Porsche engine midships.
Curious if that was a possible direction (or maybe a sub-group possible)? I’ve got many related delusions of building fast multi-seat rides for good throughput and a bit of a party atmosphere for riders that want that experience. Thoughts?
I am unable to read my own clock, that should be the 17th
Keep the changes within reason.
The inspiration cars are the inspiration cars for a reason.
I think the engine PU/ET limit should be more lenient, if there is to be one at all. I’m having trouble building a modern 2020 V10 with no negative quality.
I’ll make a few testers later today and up requirements if I find things don’t work right
The Following Rules have been amended due to the previously mentioned issues (sorry for the delay I had no time yday and little today)
has been changed to

With these changes, I will give about 12-15h for additional questions and deliberations.
Will exterior aesthetics be judged? If so, I’d expect them to be factored into scoring for prestige.
That is something I entirely forgot to account for, I will add it to the Top Requirements and amend the scoring
2020 FMC Mamba S Edition TnT_-Lanson-_FMC_Mamba_S_Edition.car|attachment (29.0 KB)
sits in the FMC lineup as a proper mid-engined sporting car, with all the modern safety, performance, and comfort assists that modern technology can offer. The “S Edition” is the mid-range trim of the line and offers a normally aspirated 5.0L V10 engine and 6 speed dual-clutch transmission, routing power to the rear wheels. The Mamba S Edition is lighter and slightly more nimble than its brother, the Black Mamba, which is AWD and equipped with twin turbochargers. Most owners looking for a balance between power, handling, and comfort tick the “S Edition” box, and a lucky few will get a chance to select the sinister two-tone “Alyssum Green” and flat black paint job. The color combination is exclusive to the “S Edition”.
The Mamba S Edition’s V10 runs a redline of 8,000 RPM, and produces 485 HP. This is detuned slightly from its max capabilities to ensure lap after lap of reliable performance. Cooling is enhanced with the enlarged radiator and air intake ducts in the bodywork, and a rear fascia with large sections of reinforced mesh to allow hot air to flow outward. All Mambas ride on sophisticated pushrod suspension with semi-active dampers, and a low but still safe to drive ride height. Carbon brakes all around keep braking distances exceptionally low, and the staggered tire setup (265/40R18 front, 315/35R19 rear) on 3 piece forged alloy wheels keeps the handling under control. Final skidpad g rating is 1.21 on the standard sports compound tires.
The FMC Mamba S Edition laps the Automation track in a scalding (but not nuclear) 2:05:71. What’s amazing is despite this non record-breaking lap, it still accelerates ~0-62mph in 3.4s, runs the 1/4 mile in 11.47s, pulls to its electronically-limited top speed of 199MPH (pull the governor off and the gearing will take the “S” to 213 MPH), and it still gets 28.3 mph when not being flogged. Amazing performance from a car that costs $106,000.
I will only accept entries that have been DM’d to me, jsyk
