Wiler motor company engines
I’m still working out a proper history for this car company, largely because I’m still working out a potential history between 1950 and present day that being said, till I do sort out a history, this thread will be for what engines I will try to show (when not being sidetracked by life).
That and this much I’ll say for now, Wiler motor company is based in America, has been functioning in some capacity since the 1960s (although the founders themselves had been in some working capacity since the 30s and 40s) and their primary means of business is building engines for racing, although it is not out of the question they will build engines meant for road cars, and eventually take on to building their own cars.
Apart from that…it’s a work in progress.
Now for engines, lets start off with some engines for a few prototype racing sports cars, specifically LMP2 and the Daytona Prototype.
This being based around the 24 hour engine challenge in scenario mode (although I’ve yet to exactly pass that yet…), my approach was a 5 liter Pushrod direct injected motor, trying to go for a compromise of bore and stroke.
I usually go with pushrods given potential to be lighter and to take up far less physical space compared to a motor with an overhead camshaft design, although that is not to say I’m beyond or can’t build a camshaft motor, I can.
I’m aware that scenario rules play very differently than sandbox (so much so given how the Trans-am option allows some things that aren’t available in sandbox compared to scenario), but regardless, tried to build and model a car close to competition rules more than what’s actually stated for FIA LMP2 engines.
I’m kinda proud although until I can average gold in the scenario mode…even with all my time messing around with V8s, I’ve still got ways to go.
I’m sure there is room for improvement.
I’ve got two DP motors, and doing a bit of both going off the LMP2 engine as a start, but also trying to fit it within 2014 DP based rules best I could. I still tried to keep the economy somewhere close to the LMP2 even with a larger motor pushing out more power.
Keep in mind though that like before, there is room for more power, but one limitation is compression ratio, and I did try to make as much power as I could within that compression ratio while keeping maximum fuel economy and responsiveness.
DP Motor 2 is meant to push to the max the allotted bore for a DP engine, while still keeping it at or under 5.5 liters, and so we have this more powerful engine with not much a change apart from economy, size, and so forth.
One reason why I’ve let the RPM go a bit further past max power for all these motors is to give a driver a bit more room for shifting other than only being able to do so once the engine reaches max power. Keep in mind like LMP2, VVT/VVL is not allowed either, but well…I’m okay with these engines but naturally, I am looking for ways to make them better.
It’s also why the DP motors have 2017, since I’m trying to come up with potential engine ideas for a hopeful future prototype that could be a combination of LMP2 and DP…who knows.
I’m afraid to ask what others here think of Daytona Prototypes, some love them…some loathe them for reasons. But that’s a ramble for another thread.
that’s all I can put on for now far as attachments go, so, any thoughts so far?
