TCR Ute Pro Cup

Post by Flyin Mikey J on Sun Feb 16, 2014 8:23 am

I am thinking about a possible follow up to NAFFCar: Utes.

Basically the El Camino, with all possible upgrades to suspension/platform, trans/drivetrain, tires/width. lightest wheels, Forza aero f/r, and 450 (or possibly 500) HP max.

Basically, Spec Car on steroids.

Thoughts?

Sorry, I wish there was a Ford Ranchero Cobrajet in the game, as I had a 1972. Was a sweet ride until the engine spilled its guts cross half a mile of Nordhoff Street while I was street racing it.

On that note, I know what I will be doing while offline this evening... try a few different builds and see what is possible.

Hard to put a blue oval across a bowtie grille, but sure have at it.

I found something that actually feels like there are rules: 520PI, 3200 Lbs, and 450 HP.

Now, I need someone to set up a private race lobby, with a 450HP max, and see if a stock El Camino will fit, as it has 450 HP in stock form. If not, I may go to 500 HP and 3100 Lbs.

Yes, race tires. No, not in the garage yet. Since it has a stock engine, I just need to find out if a stock 450HOP engine can get into a lobby with 450 max HP. And I am not on XBL to do it myself.

Re: TCR Ute Pro Cup

I tried a few builds on a few tracks, with and without TCS, and found this to be the most fun way to go:

545 PI
499HP
3100 Lbs
Forza Aero F/R
Race Rollcage mandatory
Naturally Aspirated ONLY
NO TCS

Other than that, it is an Open Build. Whatever wheel rims, rim size, tire width, etc.

Track List
Maple Full Reverse (2x20-25 minute races)
Mazda Laguna Seca (2x20-25 minute races)
Mugello Club (3x15-18 minute races)
Iberian Full Reverse (3x15-18 minute races
Old La Sarthe (1x60 minute championship race)

If there are six rounds, one round will be 2 races at Silverstone International.

love the build, but should ban race slicks and drop the PI,
too much grip, too easy to drive Wink
also, what about a 30 lap race at sunset speedway, would be good fun,

The reason for race tires is easier to drive, especially for those that shy away from 500HP Muscle Cars.

And no ovals, "too American", and I am going for an Aussie feel.

This is the first of what I think should be called "Pro Cup Series": basically a Spec Cup without a set build.

Another planned is MX5, possibly C4 Corvette or 99 Viper.

I tested a few potential Pro Cup builds, remembering to try diversity to keep TORA Staff and racers happy. Cars to expect:

1) Utes
2) Skyline
3) Renault Twingo
4) either MX5 or Ford Sierra

I was playing with Sierra builds last night, and no matter what HP or weight, it is a great car to drive.
