    Hi all,

    i start a tread, not really a game, but a kind of. I've think to build a F1 with 2014 regulation to participate as RD team. I know everyone here love F1, so thats why i put it here. I dont really want to put in an other section, i want to made it with RD Forum Game community.

    The challenge is here:
    http://www.khamsinvirtualracecarchallenge.com/home

    Forum part here:
    http://www.f1technical.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=13382

    We will think in group what kind of design we will use for each part of the car and need respect 2014 regulation. The 2013 is finished and soon the 2014 will begun.

    They use a software to test our design and test it on virtual track. They make weird design for 2013 contest, so we need to change that with a real and usable design :)


    REGULATION WILL COME LATER

    OTHER INFORMATION ALSO

    Its collectively work, i will the main designer, i mean, i will put our choice on the software Google Sketchup. No internal championship will be made. Its only building a car and will be test by a the contest owner. All the result of each test will be share to us. On 2013 all car was tested on tree different track. Between each test we will able to do some modification.

    The contest owner will grant us Radiatord size, wheel, gear box size, engine size and fuel tank. This part of the car will be the same for everyone, so we cant modify it. Our goal will be find the best design, a fastest one and best esthetic.

    What i saw, to be to much original is not payfull.... the faster car for 2013 have a nice standart looking shape.

    Here the 2013 car

    Faster one

    Ok we got template rules for starting it.

    One point, we wont participate on the contest, now is no more free at this time, 50$ to enter, but if they find sponsor like they did on 2013 one, its will become free and when its happen we will join them. But we can start the design.

    A last thing, for building our F1 team, does we do part by part exactly or just doing it the estetisc look only?
