LeMans Challenge

9,465 logizAircrafts  5 days ago

Here I present you with a challenge to build the world's BEST endurance race car you can come up with, inside the rules spectrum. Your vehicle will be tested against the one provided by me. Deadline is July 31st.

Rules:

1) Follow the regulations provided by the FIA for a LeMans LMP1 Endurance Prototype (I'll be a bit flexible, but not that much).
2) No more than 800 parts (5 parts tolerance).
3) No less than 200 parts (5 parts tolerance).
4) Must be a successor to the post (specific cases may be considered).
5) Must be feasible and realistic.
6) Must have a good description (describe controls, history of development, etc...)
7) Scale it according to my vehicle (not obligatory, just recommended)

Points:

Description - 15 points
Realism - 20 points
Consistency - 20 points
Speed - 15 points
Endurance - 25 points
Deadline compliance - 5 points

How I'll be rating:

I'll be first adressing your vehicle's realism, be it in looks or in performance. I'll then test it's straight line speed in Yaeger Airport. Next up, I'll lap it against my own vehicle and test it's speed on track, it's endurance and it's consistency of lap times. The lapping will occur in multiple conditions, including dawn, noon, dusk and midnight, cloudy, hazy and clear, windy, breezy and stale. I will then host a multiplayer race (server 157.7.205.136) with 24 cars and a pace vehicle (around Gold Prix Raceway). The pace car position is for LotterCrafts, because he requested it personally, and he'll post it a a successor (not for grading, just for convenience). The cars will all lap around the pace car for one lap, then they'll race until their fuel tank is empty. After that, they shall retreat to their pit stop (below the bridge at Gold Prix, next to the main track) and await for the rest of the vehicles to either finish or blow up.

Using my vehicle:

Use it for testing purposes only. Do NOT use it for your build. Operate it with the regular pitch and roll controls, A1 for daytime running lights, A2 for the mid beam and A3 for the high beam. The vehicle features power creep so don't think that you're lagging if it rolls away without the brakes. It also features progressive steering so you'll corner the best at speed.

About active features:

Active aerodynamics aren't allowed, but features like launch systems, power creep, air brakes, progressive steering, active diffusers, downforce generators, active anti-roll bars, anti-slip differentials and body tilt are allowed. You can also use an energy regeneration system of sorts.

    @ChisP About the MGU-K systems I'm not sure.

    @ChisP Launch systems allow you to start up with more torque and the boost pre-built. Power creep means that the car drives slowly when you don't throttle nor brake it. Air brakes are usually placed on a spoiler and tilt to help the car brake faster. Active diffusers have little flaps to expain the airflow and adjust automatically to provide more downforce.

    Btw how do you make an energy recovery system in sp

    @logizAircrafts I was just showing off, I'm sorry

    @alan14 That speed is not realistic at all, remember this game forces you to use the imperial system, not the metric like I and probably you are used to. Also, could you try to make a body?

    I made a car that goes to 411 mph and it's really realistic but it's not a real car and it's also just a chassis. To reach those speeds, increase the size of the wheels and put heavier pieces in the front so that the wheels back and forth have a better grip, is a bodyless chassis to have a better aerodynamics (sorry if there is a spelling mistake, I'm using the google translator to write this)

    Just add a load of little blocks in the back and make the 0.1 0.1 and use nudge tool to hide them@alan14

    your Car has too much fuel to be a lmp1 car

    Cause it’s not a legit physics race car its artificial downforce @logizAircrafts

    @CRJ900Pilot I will, weight isn't that much of an issue

    Thanks. My entry will be realistically sized, but because of how many parts it has, it will be way over the weight limit of the LMP3 class (the class I’m building) so you might have to make an exception there ;D@logizAircrafts

    @ChisP Don't take it off track, only use it in high physics and why the condescending attitude?
