They should add all this functionality to Live For Speed, so you can simulate driving what you create.
Oh... I didnt hit 200... Guess i have some work to do. Remember to follow ops ruoes carefully!
Up over 200 total score. Probably tweak it some more but I don't know if it'll really get any better.
currently .6 lb/hph economy and 194hp
1.5-0.7 = 0.8 * 100 = 80
202hp + 80 eco - 80 hp = 202?
did i do it right?
wait fuck my engine is way to big lmao
Yeah. Gotta make sure its under 1300cc.
is that within all the rules?
score is 222 if i'm right
I believe we're restricted to multi point EFI with performance intake, too
shit that was direct injection HOLD ON
shit wrong gas too
Good find and idea. Downloading now.
Am I allowed to have a 1300cc engine or does it have to be 1299 or less because I was able to squeeze out another point with it.
Also are ITB's allowed? You mentioned "Performance" intake but unlike when you specified a standard 3 way cat you didn't mention if the intake had to be standard.
far as i've made it tonight, might try to tweak it some more tomorrow but i really don't think i'll be able to get much more out of it without cancelling out hp gains by also raising the lb/hph..
costs are all wonky 'cause target factory is set to 1950, everything else is set to 2011 but i guess target factory just decided to be all different and ~edgy~
Making me download DirectX...got a little less than 20 minutes left. :\
Never mind gotta download 382 mb. :sigh:
I actually used the oldest shittest materials in my engine. I don't even have any aluminum parts.
I hit a score of 238 on the first go! WOOHOO! Tuning time!
I achieved a 218, I've been screwing with everything I can and I can't seem to make it go any higher. I'm gonna have to take a break..
I am sure there are tweaks to get a few more HP out of the engines but I don't see 16 more horsepower, I squeezed pretty hard for what I made and Dylan is saying he made 2 more HP than me but has also yet to post screenshot.
I suck at this.
Of course, this is my first time doing anything with engines, so I'll learn what I can.
I want to be able to tune suspension geometries for race cars, I've learned how to set up suspensions from Forza Motorsport and Live For Speed. I guess I'll just have to wait for release.
-Was wrong, actually a score of 224.-
Damn can't get a much higher score than 152...I think.
1.3 lb/hph and 212 hp
.9 lb/hph and 172 hp with a score of....152. :geno:
Whatever I'll come back tomorrow.
I'll just... go play Diablo 3... in a couple hours... and forget all about this failure
I give up. There is literally nothing I can do to get my horsepower ratings up while getting my economy down. It's literally impossible. I've tried every combination of every option imaginable, and there is nothing I can do to get it to Bradley's score. My best was 198.
The winner of "Bradley and Turke's Automation Challenge" is...Bradley, the host of the challenge.
changed the picture so you can see that i used only allowed parts.
If my calculations are correct, my best score is 243
I feel like I did something wrong but here it is anyway.
Your displacement is a full liter larger than it should be. It's at 2311cc, and it should be at 1300cc or less.
Also, i feel like several people are not seeing the technology slider on the individual tabs.
got it to 231...
Nice, looks like it's Dylan with 243, Psygo with 231, and then me with 226 for the top three.
I'm curious as to how you guys pushed so much more power out, I couldn't find any more than what I got.
you using aluminium block and head?
for some reason making them cast gave me ~5hp :v
also could be related to bore/stroke..
Making the head cast gives a few more hp, but i didn't get a change from the block.
yeah i didn't try separately changing them, only both at a time.
If my math is right, I'm now at 232.. Using regular 3 way now (didn't even realize there was 3 way and high flow 3 way, lol)
trying to tweak it just a little more to get those last 12 points..
Managed to get a total score of 244
I can't get my score past 244, seems to be the wall.
