    I managed to get this carriage to the start line at the 'Ring, and then it was mostly coasting to T1, which came at a time of about 2'24. Couldn't make it up the next hill.

    Well, 8 ft-lbs is the torque at the crankshaft before any gearing multipliers. Put a tall enough gear on that carriage and you could have 8000 ft-lbs at the wheels. But with a maximum speed of about 0.1 MPH.

    Same goes for the horse by the way -- use the right pulley system and a horse can lift a Sherman tank...

    yep. but you need to "U" your paths. that is, you need to go downhill as you zigzag to gain enough speed to make it uphill some....then you repeat till you make it.

    i honestly think that the nurb is just plain immpossible though. lol.

    yep. but, i wasn't being critical or anything. i've had enough of the motor carriage. my need for speed can only be satisfied by something slower!

    41'51.730 ... I'll get the screenshot uploaded somewhere tonight. Replay is saved and I can record as an mpeg or avi if anyone's truly that interested ;)

    That was some good relaxation after trying to beat License S-16 a few times, though :)

    Okay, so I just noticed I didn't snap the screenshot in 3rd person view. Note the engine redline, throttle, RPM, mph, and gear. ;)

    Outstanding work, Omnis! The furthest I could get it this thing before fainting of boredom was down the hill & around the first few corners at Laguna Seca.

    While I don't think I'd ever get bored enough to torture myself in this manner, a race around New York, Hong Kong, or either of the Paris tracks should work fine since they're totally flat.

    If you drive any of the really low hp cars you will increase your B spec points a lot on those practice drive courses.

    You guys need to do something more productive with your time...like do drugs or something :lol:. Only joking, but I'm rather impressed you guys tried that.

    It's a shame you can't actually hook a horse up to this horseless carriage, I'm sure the horse would be able to pull you up a slight incline at least.

    Definition of horsepower: Power required to lift 330 pounds of coal 100 feet in a minute.

    This car has a mass of about 630 lbs. :nervous:

    Kudos to you.

    Awesome! Best I've done was taken the crappier of the two (the 8mph one) on the Vegas quarter mile. That hurt. It took 1m57s if I recall correctly:) And due to the model detail, the replay was painful as there a LOT of flickering:)

    That's amazing. 47 minutes.

    I'm a cross country runner, I can run a 400 in around a minute pretty easy. I could probably run 8 miles (Le Mans distance) in a little under an hour with moderate effort, so the Daimler Motor Carriage could probably obliterate me, but I bet that I could obliterate the Benz Patent Motor Wagon. If cheating was allowed, i think that cutting corners could help me a great deal because sand traps probably bog these cars down beyond salvage.

    I'm impressed by the patience of those who have driving this round some of the bigger tracks, I got bored before the 3rd hairpin at Tsukuba!
