    well everybody, i won the Mercedes-Benz Daimler Motor Carriage (1886) and decided i would undertake in the most grueling of races....the nurburgring.



    that failed.



    so, i tried the next best choice, which was Circuit de la Sarthe II. i dont think anyone has attempted a full lap around this track, or even cleared the uphill chicane for that matter. I did. i have lots of pics and video proving it as well...i also saved the replay for anyone who cares enough to put me under speculation.

    i put a piece of paper with my username and gtplanet.net on it on my television screen. maybe this is a new world record... i dont know. lol. anyone care to direct me to some kind of international gt4 times database?

    anyway, there you have it...for your viewing pleasure. i can post more pics or a video of how i cleared the chicane later if you want.

    so start commenting, and see if you have the inspiration to become a carriage master, like yours truly. :sly:

    I tried doing this to try and annihilate his record, but I was defeated by the first bump in the road.... :(

    does this car have any upgradable parts?

    it would look really funny with alloy wheels and disk brakes

    how much pure torque does this bad boy have?

    and resale price?

    1. no. i think you can perform a chassis stiffening though. i'll need to check again.
    2. how much do you think? 1hp/650rpms. torque isn't any greater.
    3. it can't be bought, and you're not getting any money if you decide to sell it. it's strictly a novelty.

    top speed is 11mph, and it hits 12 just before it bogs out. my fastest top speed though was about 60mph on the ring. you need to tap the e-brake and roll in neutral whenever possible. the only thing really impressive about the car is its turning radius and super cool driver guy (who looks like a fool).

    I just won that car this morning and was able to get it to go 18kmh at Infinion, Although I couldn't get it past the first hill.

    you guys should try it in the other 1886 car that only goes like 8 mph before it hits the rev limiter and basically dies :D

    actually it requires just over 8 ft-lbs of torque to produce 1hp @ 650rpm

    too bad there are no drag slicks in the game

    yeah.....no matter how much speed you make on the first downhill, you cannot make the uphill section of the first eastbound straight. also, i would think the uphill portion of the starting grid would be a challenge to climb. if you dont floor it before the autodrive shuts off, you will not be able to make it, and will roll downhill again.

    but le sarthe is pretty long too...so :crazy:

    LMAO. I might have to try that if I get bored and need something to keep from lobotomizing myself.

    With this HP to MPH ratio, the Merc SLR should be able to do 7500MPH!

    Make the hill less steep, i.e. zipzag up it. ;)
