Alzen Porsche 996 Biturbo "Turbinchen" 2.9

VLN "Special" build for the Nordschleife

    old build thread on the official forum (CLICK)
    This is a one-off car build by Jürgen Alzen Motorsport for the VLN championship on the Nürburgring Nordschleife. It ran during glorious times full of custom build cars, alongside old DTM and spec-series machinery, before showroom GT3 class cars took over. Speedwise this car is very ...different. Be prepared for more power, more weight, less aero, less electronics, not even a sequential gearbox. Enjoy GT3 speed with a manual shifter.

    The mod includes two versions of the car, a ~740 PS, RWD only version designed after the first iterations of the car running in 2003, and the ~600 PS AWD version that ran in 2005, the car's final year.

    Physics of the cars were created with the official team's permission and (a little bit of) their data, and optimised based on its real life lap times around the 'Ring.

    Both versions of the car include a number of skins each, some inspired by real race cars, some totally fictional, plus templates are included. Sound is custom.

    This mod is not related to that old VLN 2005 mod for RFactor. Model, physics and sound are made from scratch.

    Special thanks to:

    Jürgen Alzen and his team for real data and permission

    Physics: Dauntless (he did all the hard parts :) )

    Soundbank development: users Fonsecker, yepp (and his flute), aphigod (forgot for what :p), PheNom107th (Fmod effects), NeverKrash (turbo sounds) and whoever did the sounds for the MS Flightsim 98 :)

    Skins: biggybel, Yurisminator, Brownninja97

    Testing: Brownninja97, nfsw55

    Driver position: Patrik Marek

    Recaro Racing Seat: Neubi of Blendswap (http://www.blendswap.com/blends/view/48334)

    All the rest made by me, user AccAkut of (http://www.assettocorsa.net/forum/index.php?members/accakut.236/) and (https://www.lfs.net/forum/thread/67189)

    The car suffers from a terrible FFB. The tire model isn't that good as well, I would prefer the 90's Slicks seen on the McLaren F1 GTR.

    No good 3D model. Less polygons. Not recommendable at this time. Hope there will be an further update with big improvements

    Somehow managed to miss this the first time round (I never knew it had even been released! :O)

    Good fun though - only had time for a quick burst in the RWD one, but its a good laugh - really enjoy the sound of that turbo!

    Model isn't quite on the level of your upcoming Audi - but is more than sufficient.

    Hoping to get the time to really give all variants a go, but first impressions are great!

      yeah this was my learner piece, looking at the raw mesh hurts my eyes now :D But physics are still really great I think, done totally from scratch by Dauntless(80%) and me (20%). Haven't really got to test it against the Kunos Porsche cars, and their methods of emulating Multilink suspension. Would be cool if anyone could give me feedback on this in the Support thread

    Wow! I remember trying a beta version some months ago, and it sure came a long way! GREAT improvements in every field!
    I'm only annoyed by the Turbo sound or whatever it is... (actually, is it even the turbo? anyway it seems too loud)
    Anyway, great car!

      Late response, but:

      The intercooler piping runs like 70cm behind the drivers head with not much of a bulkhead in between- it is that loud :)

      I suck at skinning... but with the included template someone else could do this skin :) Could also be included in future patches.
