Honda Racing Lawn Mower 2017-04-18

Honda HF2620

  1. garyjpaterson
    Here is the result of a 5-day binge project, to satisfy my own curiosity as to what can be achieved (by me) in a short timeframe.

    This is the answer: A not-quite-finished Honda Racing Lawn mower built by the British based BTCC team "Team Dynamics", based on the HF2620 mower.

    Please note: This was built as a personal challenge, and as result it does not represent the quality or polish I'd hope to achieve in any of my future projects!

    Credits:
    @Modek: SFX (just borrowed from the Dallara, so not a perfect match)
    Me: Everything else
    Everyone in this forum: For the patience of allowing me to indulge in stupid stuff like this instead of continuing with my many ongoing projects... :D

    As said, this was a very quick project and as a result many areas are lacking/unfinished. I'm particularly disappointed I didn't get some tyre textures or dashboard instruments done, but let me know if its wanted and I can add to it at a later date!

    Physics wise its a bit of a handful, but its seriously fast having 100+bhp at around 200kg (with driver!). Not the most refined ride by any stretch, but its certainly driveable.

    Please enjoy :)

    Oh and do not reupload this mod anywhere - just link to here. And do not make any modifications to this without my permission. Thanks

    i had a quick spin around the ring with it, you won't believe me , i was laughing for the whole 9 minutes as i was crashing and drifting this thing around, i was kinda sad today for odd reasons but your 5 days of work have put a big grin on my face.

    Great fun. The handling is a little off and so I hope you continue work on this little beast. It's definitely fast but it doesn't take much steering angle to lose grip

    Here is the lap for whoever is interested. Highlands Short Circuit:

      Super short wheelbase will do that (combined with sticky ATV tyres, high CoG etc) It is a lawn mower after all, it was never designed for 100+bhp, and as a result its tricky to drive fast.

    It can drift faster than D-spec Silveighty's and Cresta's. That's the only thing that matters in a car, or let's say ''vehicle''.

    I love it, just I have to run the gears extension to know when to change gear (normally read the dials) but the overall effect I have fallen in love with it :). Just done a quick 24 lap race around the 1966 Monza Junior track and all I will say is I have a massive smile on my face :D

    Fantastic use of a mere five days! I get the feeling that since we modders can't leave anything alone, pretty soon this will have appropriately-irritating physics, KERS mowing blades, special Lawn/Utility classes of tire, heaving driver, endless refinement, and hopefully some competition!
    Thanks for helping to make the game great. Your capabilities are impressive, and you seem to be able to really buckle down under pressure!

      Cheers - Yep, I'm currently working to add all the remaining details and just generally add refinements that was not possible in 5 days.

    Please: Someone HAS to do an MCL32 skin for this thing. The only difference between this and the McLaren is that the lawnmower would actually finish without exploding.

      Will be making some additions/refinements to the model and will release a template ASAP - I too want to see this skin :)

    Interesting and funny .
    If this is what you can do in 5 days it would be cool if you spent another 5 finishing it off . That would give credibility to future endeavours .
    1. garyjpaterson
      Author's Response
      Don't worry about future endeavours, I'm not doing them in 5 days :P But yeah, i'm keen to do the finishing details, i don't like leaving it in this state!

    I'd give more stars if I could. This thing is so much fun to drive LOL...
    I downloaded it just out of curiosity, thinking I was going tro remove it after a few tries, but it is going to be a keeper. I laughed so hard watching AI trying to stay on track at Knockhill haha...
    A working dash would be welcome. This thing is worth it !
    Thanks...
