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?

Whats the 400m time on that like over a minute?
What kind of speed did u reach on the straight of the track.
On a flat, you can get up to 11. 12 if you're lucky.

This bad boy makes the Cappucino look like a supercar.

Only 1Hp and a top speed of.....12Mph.

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 put the motor carraige through the 400m and it does it in 1:38!


Why? Why not? :sly: 👍

man common, you arn't doing this car justice, i just pulled a smokin 1:27.3 and that was with hitting the rev limiter once, that had to have slowed me down an easy 2 seconds
 
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

and that is basically crap compared to what one actual horse can pull. lol.
 
so nurburg is not possible because of the elevation changes?..... just curious why you gave up on going 13 miles in that speed demon :P

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:

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