Whittoria Auto Club Grand National Series

Post by TheMayor44 on Mon Oct 07, 2013 9:11 pm

Approved by Cynon44 (I think? It's been a few days)

Logo Subject to change. Soon.

So, I'll keep this short: This is the domestic league I ran over on NationStates, using the Aero88 mod. I ran the 1980-82 seasons and I'm picking up where I left off for 1982.

42 Car fields.

Engine sizes from V6 to V12 are available.

Turbochargers will be permitted on V6 and V8 engines, but with a reliability penalty. V6 engines will be permitted to have twin turbos but with a heavier reliability penalty.

Ground effects will be permitted, but with significant aerodynamic and consistency penalties.

Base Ratings:

RATINGS STACK

Spoiler:
DRIVER
Ratings Stacked -5, 0, +5, and +10

Consistency:
Qualifying:
Finishing:

For Track Skill Type, the stack is:
-5
0
+5
+10

Team owners determine the vehicle's stack, which is also -5, 0, +5, +10

All Pit Crew Ratings will be 0-100

ENGINE OPTIONS:
Spoiler:

Naturally Aspirated 8cyl/10cyl/12cyl:        60-80
Up to 8 Liters
Turbocharged 8cyl:                           60-85   (Penalty: -20 Reliability)

Naturally Aspirated 6cyl:                    50-70
Turbocharged 6cyl:                           55-90 (Penalty: -35 Reliability)

10cyl and 12cyl engines are options, but MUST be Naturally Aspirated and any claimed gain in horsepower is offset by the extra weight of the engine.
Naturally aspirated engines will receive a slight chassis advantage since they're lighter (+5)
10cyl and 12cyl engines will receive a reliability bonus of +5, but a Chassis penalty of -3

GROUND EFFECTS

You may opt to fit your car with ground effects technologies (80s GE technologies, mind you) for better corner handling (+10 handling) but with a penalty in Consistency (-5) and Aerodynamics (-10).

MANUFACTURERS

If it exists for the Aero88 mod I'll allow it, real life or fictional. Even TM Canon vehicles, if you feel so inclined to make a template. Choose from one of these, if you feel so inclined.

I'll have a team chart up when I start accepting entries, and this will be updated as I think of more info. For now, be patient Smile

I think you have to sign up for an account on Nationstates or ask someone who has a nation (or an account) over there if you can be on their national team... And Whitt, I will be participating, I may have my puppets or start a recruiting drive in ISRANIA.

Yes, I'll have it open by the end of the week.

And Woodard, no need to have a nation over on NS to participate, although if anyone else does (like I know you do) then your driver can participate as from your nation. In act 1981 saw the first foreign born driver to not only win a race but also the title.

So yeah, if you have or want a nation from NS for your driver to hail from go for it, otherwise they'll be a Whittorian.

Alright folks. Deadline is Friday. You can enter a car at any time, but for the full season it's gotta be in by Friday. I'll update the team chart tomorrow.

Tigerman, the 34 is taken.

Indeed, this is still happening. I can probably throw some renders of current teams up, bit all the template have been made. I've already run the first qualifying race for Daytona and the second I'll probably run tonight.

For tracks with less than 42 stalls I'll probably do qualifying races or go by practice times to get it down. Mostly at short tracks, but maybe at a few of the big tracks too.

They are, I just haven't updated the team chart yet; but I do not have ratings from you yet. However, if you can get them to me by the end of the day then I'll take them. Otherwise all ratings will be set very, very low.

Speaking of which, that goes for anyone else who has not sent in ratings yet.
