So, the Las Vegas factory line-up has built a new race car that is definitely better than the previous Lumic in terms of performance.
Warning for pilots:
In the air, when the grip force weakens, the car will behave a little wrong: the rear brakes remain dorwally strong, and therefore allow a little turn with them. Otherwise, the aerodynamics try to keep the car taut and steerable.
For this reason, remember: piloting this car on the verge of breakdown is two times more problematic - new properties start to appear.
Otherwise, there will be no problem with this car.
It can reach 270 km/h on the Autobahn without any problems, but further on, its piloting will be complicated.
The gearbox is an advanced automatic.
Mass is [1718/3787] kg/lb.
All-wheel drive, power distribution works.
Overall, this car is very good on the track, and it beats the 420hp BMW M3 by 3 seconds - at the GP Streke Nurburgring.
BMW M3 420hp record - 2:21:00
VV Zuper Reactor 540hp record - 2:18:440.
Nurburgring GP Strecke
This is my favourite track, which is good for testing cars without risking your life - Almost. This is most likely due to the strange properties of the models from Automation, as models have been known to lose a great deal of usable power in corners.
Turn two in the Mercedes Arena
Not every car is able to make it through the Nurburgring, but strangely enough there are always some that want to, despite the track’s notoriety - it’s very easy to crash.
After a few tries, we got around all the sharp kerbs, which pierced the VV Zuper Reactor tyres, and we clocked a total time of 9 minutes 13.576 seconds. On par with the Jaguar S Type.
The price for the new car is $81,300. As shown by Automation [$218,000].
So, by producing this car, the Las Vegas plant becomes multi-purpose: it can produce lightweight and sports cars.
Power of the power plant: [540/532] hp/bhp and [620/ 457] [nm/lb-ft] of torque.
The car weighs [1718/3787] kg/lbs, slightly lighter than the Jaguar F Type which holds the Nurburgring Full record in 7:29:18. Which is suspicious, because it’s powered by almost the same 600hp engine.
It becomes clear how well BeamNG.drive tries to simulate driving in real life. And so you can find many competitors to this game for the title of the most accurate simulator.
On this track it is simply impossible to get out of the 8:40:00, everywhere on each turn a certain speed, faster than which you can’t pass.
And by the way, you should expect 7 minutes records, because there are quite a lot of good cars on those times.
But never mind. The VV Zuper Reactor has already proven to be tight and extreme. Constant stress is bad for you too, as many racers have been known to start losing their hair.
I did the front entirely myself, the rear bodywork decided to borrow from one of Interior cars as an aesthetic and proper solution.
125 mounted parts.
Closest competitor is the Jaguar XE SV Project 8 [600 hp]. Time: 7.23.164
Far competitor: Porsche 911 RS MR 991.2 [700 hp]. Seriously modified by the race team for Nordshleife Full. Track record holder. Time: 6:38:835.
