This would make a great QFC or CSR, but the current rounds for both are still ongoing, so it makes sense to turn it into a standalone challenge.
What kind of penalty do you have in mind for race parts? My two cents:
… race intake to be unfiltered open intake runners. In states with strict emissions laws, they’re illegal even though they don’t significantly affect emissions; states with sniff-only or no testing should have no problem with them as long as total noise is within limits. They are relatively easy to swap back and forth, depending on engine layout. If not swapped for HPDE use, the engine sucks up a lot of dirt and its longevity decreases.
… race headers to be highly developed and optimized exhaust manifolds. Expensive up front but don’t really have major downsides in use. Same deal as intake regarding legality. Generally an impractical amount of work to swap for events. Do not affect reliability, don’t add much noise (in fact often lower it), but might increase service costs slightly.
… semi-slicks to be actual slicks, not street-legal like DOT-R. Don’t affect emissions even in strict states, but can lead to the car impounded if driven on the street with them. Sudden rain or puddles can make for an entertaining and hopefully not tragic day. It’s very common for HPDE cars to bring a second set of wheels with track tires on them, as they’re very easy to swap. This could be reflected in upfront and service costs.
Using race parts will give an extra $300 service cost penalty per part, also since service costs are now a 3 star priority I’m removing the $3000 limit
Could you clarify what parts will qualify for the race parts penalty? Obviously anything that says race in it, but what about the various underfloor options, magnesium/carbon rims, semi-slicks, etc.? Thanks!
ETA Sorry this came after rules deliberation, I didn’t think about it now…
Is full 3d allowed?
Everything that has “race” in the name and semi slicks count as a race part, anything else is okay.
Yes it’s allowed, just make sure the length and overhangs are close to the body you choose.
2022 Genarro Vatiara

The Vatiara promises you the full Genarro experience at just $62,500
the first one
Yeah, new cars are all well and good, but they lack the style, the character, the essence of a classic car. And classic cars… well, they can be temperamental at the best of times.
So, what if you were to take the body of a classic 60s couple but imbue it with a more modern, more potent engine and chassis? The boffins over at Team X has the solution in the Pegasus 260CR.
It features fully revised and built springs and dampers in all four corners, racing style sports seat and upgraded entertainment package, classic aftermarket wheels with modern sports tyres and a subtle compliment of front splitter and rear spoiler to help keep the car planted to the road or racetrack. And under the long, sleek bonnet sits the beating heart from it’s 22 year younger brother, a 2.6L I6 with Twin Cams, 24 valves and 2 turbos from factory. Ready for a lead foot and some wide open roads.

If I understand correctly you’re saying both the car family and the engine family have to be named in the specified format, but the car trim and engine variant can have whatever name you want?
