Budget Car Challenge

    Welcome to the Budget Car Challenge Thread!

    Gt5anticip8r inspired me to create this challenge several months ago with the creation of the Hot Hatch series. This is the Budget Car Challenge thread, wherein every month, the GTPlanet community is invited to buy, modify, and drive cars they normally wouldn't in a series of challenges with ever-changing themes.

    I talked about it once on one of the Top Gear threads, and now I'd like to share my thoughts with you, here: this competition's main restriction is based on budget.

    Any GT5 player with about half a hundred grand or more to burn can take part. That budget, which I announce with every rules set, must be spent on both a car and modifications. Any car and any modifications are fine as long as the total cost adds up to that credit budget, and the only work that you may do on your car for "free" is maintenance work in GT Auto, especially if you buy a used car.

    Once you've made your parts purchases, you may not remove them until the current season is over.

    Remember, everyone, it's about being savvy as well as stylish and swift. Buy the best car you can or one of your favorites within the budget, but remember that cheaper cars will net one more tuning options. Stealth preorders which came for free and pre-race-prepared or pretuned cars (the Spoon vehicles, HPA Stage II, etc.), however, are not eligible.

    If you want to eliminate guesswork and lots of long, sleepless nights in the UCD, check out this site (thanks negative1 http://www.mygranturismo.net/ but remember that the prices in the UCD are subject to change. Be on the lookout for the best buys possible.

    The assists allowed are subject to change, but usually the only assist you may utilize is ABS set to 5 or below. Grip reduction must be set to Real, and mechanical damage shall be set to Light. Manual transmissions only, too: if you're having trouble getting the handle of a Manual tranny, here's the perfect place to muck about with it for fun and bragging rights.

    The objects change with every week, including time attacks, drift trials and the odd Photomode competition.

    To make sure everyone's playing on the same level field, I will ask all competitors to register their chosen car(s?) with me and a list of all modifications made. The total must, again, line up to the announced credits spent in total on the car and any modifications. Every season, if this goes on long enough, you may pick one car (and only one car) to compete in, so pick carefully!

    So how does that sound? Email me for anything at rrvcrinale@gmail.com or at suborbital@verizon.net and, please email me with your GTP username and your best times. If you are a late entry, you must also post your car entry, including its cost and a list of parts given to it. Don't be shy: join in!

    In order to send your times, take a picture of your best lap time and the car you used to put it down, then email it to me at the same email address I specified above.

    Good luck, and good driving!

    All drivers posted have eligible cars. I'm not going to post the car types and names over and over and over again, but I will say this: competition is closer than I would have pegged it to be, and even the Camaros' power couldn't hold off the Subaru. All-wheel drive and the robust mill of the Impreza may be keys to this car's success...I'll see where I can level the playing field in track choice next, though.

    No Founder's Car time this time since this week was a difficult one for me. I couldn't post a time like I hoped.

    sounds interesting.. i will look up a nice car

    Alright, an update: I've decided on our track.

    Entries are still open and I will start accepting times and car entries from the 16th to the 23rd!
  4. I'm game. Picked out the car and am working on my tuning options. I'll shoot you an email once I'm finalized.

    This sounds good, I've forgotten how much my March G# cost, though...
  6. ac3h01e


    I'm so in, Trial Mountain is my favorite track man. My only question is how do we register the times?
  7. Airrider


    Ah, that's right!

    I've edited the first post to include directions.

    Again, for anything, please email me so any discussion in this thread is about the weekly competition and not necessarily just questions.
  8. Airrider


    Thank you.

    Another edit has been made to give people this important tool.
  9. Sounds like fun, I'm thinking the 3000gt's and RX7's are gonna be front-runners. Any tire restrictions?

    Hmm. Your tire restrictions are whatever's left of your 50,000 cr budget after you purchased your car. Stealth preorders and pretuned cars (the Spoon vehicles, HPA Stage II, etc.) are not eligible.

    Miatas? Nah, they're cool.

    As I stated in my first post, "Any car and any modifications are fine as long as the total cost adds up to 50,000 CR. The only service that you may do to your car for "free" is an oil change if it is purchased from the UCD."
  11. baio


    Sounds interesting and fun! :D Looking for a good car right now :)
  12. freedomweasel


    Great idea! So we pick one car and build it up for use over the whole season? No changing cars each week? Can we change the mods? Like swap a turbo for better tires or something?

    Either way, I'll have to think of a good car to use!
  13. Airrider


    Seasons won't go on too long. I think each season will be monthly starting from February on.

    Every two weeks you'll be allowed to swap your pats, and every month you'll be able to change cars.

    I'm thinking about another problem that may arise : prize cars...

    The cars won as prizes have no actual "cost" to the user, so it would be possible to spend the whole 50K in modifications, how do the challenge rules deal with that ?
  15. Airrider


    Prize cars are also prohibited.
  16. freedomweasel


    Can't we just look up the cost of the car and take that out of the budget? For example, according to the car list the BMW 2002 is 31,000 to buy so I could just take that out and spend the rest of the money on mods.
  17. badger_mk2


    all performance mods and race soft tires (turbo 3) should be 141,500 APPROX. Remember this does not incl. any weight/tranny/suspension upgrades.
  18. Airrider


    ...ah. Good point.

    Alright then. As long as it's not a pre-race-prepared car.

    I'd think Evos and STis would also be competitive ...

    I wish my Nissan Silvia 240RS (S110) '83 didn't cost so much ... I might participate w/ an S13, S14, or S15 ...

    Ah, I love these budget limited contests. Me, Leo and a few others used to do TG themed GT4 contests on another forum. Fun times. Count me in. :D

    Shouldn't there be a tire restriction of some sort?

    Personally I think even if somebody gets a faster car, it would be hard for them to beat a slower car with much better tires.
    Right now what I think will happen is everybody just getting the cheapest yet cost efficient to mod car in the UCD then getting some Racing soft tires.
  24. Crit


    I could see that, except that we'll run different tracks throughout the season. Long, fast tracks will have that race-tired Suzuki sucking wind!
  25. Airrider


    Exactly. Courses are the real mitigating factor here. Do not expect one set to be the killer mod. You may be at Tsukuba and making hay with such a modification and that's all well and good...but what happens if I send you all to The Indy oval next time?
  26. Looking at the list there are few cheap cars, like the ALTEZZA Touring Car which does cost only 35k or so and probably comes with racing tires of some sort and is light, powerful and has adjustable suspensions and gearboxes...

    Maybe leave racing cars out totally?
  27. hmmm, 76' golf? 8444cr.
  28. TimberW

    Yes, I agree, it should be left for road cars only.
  29. GTP_Richard


    Sweet man... i had an idea like this but with just stock cars. Count me in on this! Now, just need to find a car.
