    Doing this for a friend : RE Amemiya with GT300 Asparadrink Wankel engine, removed the turbo, so she is NA :D and painted in nice matte black. Sounds great without the turbo. Great build idea :tup: from Ericiscoollike and Zduph.

    I am using custom suspension from another car as well, just drop it a bit lower than the custom that came with the car and it has wider spring rate range, from low ( 3kg ) to 17 kg. Apparently, it can't go any lower on this car :( just like the default custom.

    Used another one, appeared like a slammed one :D

    It was one of the first cars I did back in 2.11, lol. I think just about everyone made one :)

    (Rescued from my old account, just checked the code and the chassis is the Asparadrink Premium. Sat here at the lowest it'll go on the Bentley suspension, hence the huge amounts of camber)

    Cool replica that I made in my spare time - when I can squeeze between so many requests builds and my own play time with other games ... :D

    McLaren F1 LM in Papaya Orange, F1 GTR engine and chassis, corrected weight 1062 kg and distribution at 41.2% Front and 58.8% Rear, 680HP - adjusted downforce to obtain real life top speed 225 mph.


    The handling is now like in how test driver reported in real life, understeer in low speed entry, lower gear/speed prone to oversteer on exit, and higher stability + neutral handling at medium/high speed corners. In summary, she's a real wild ride.

    lol I did the same idea but in yellow and made it a T.A. car (Hot Version Amemiya). Hit about 57.7 on Tsukuba with Sports Soft. I gave Eric (Ericiscoolike) one of my awesome updated 20B ones back in 2.11 xD

    Anyways, got two personal favorite hybrid replicas I made so far. There are other cars I made (like C32B+6-Speed NSX NA1, 20v 4A-GE AE86, K20A EG6, B18C EG6 etc) but these two are mostly my favorite.

    One is my Amemiya RX-7 FD3S. This is based on the Yellow N.A. 3-Rotor Machine that Amemiya made for Time Attacks and has appeared in 2 Hot-Version Videos. For this machine, I used the 3-Rotor from the GT300 Amemiya so it's a GT Spec engine and it has 400ps (394hp), I used the Fully Custom Transmission since it has a H-Pattern 'Hewland 6-Speed' Tranny with a 4.111 Final Drive (didn't change gear ratios since the rhythm of each Gear Ratio sound familar & matched the corners too). I decreased the weight to 1100kg with the stock chassis (keeping 255/40R-17 on all 4 corners), has an 8900RPM redline and turbo has been removed. Really good car and manage to clock 57.7 on Tsukuba with S-Tires (Sports Soft), I adjusted the car a bit myself.

    Another car I have is the Spoon Civic Type R EK9. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get pictures of the car. This car has been significantly re-mapped to run better than before. The car's original B16B (with Spoon 1800cc Kit) was replaced with Spoon's ITR DC2 B18C, since the original engine felt unreal, and had a impossible 12k RPM while the B18C felt like it should have been the original engine. It has 260ps (257hp). I also redid the gear ratios using Spoon's Cross Mission 1-5 Set while leaving 4.400 Final Drive. Marks 1:01.3 on Tsukuba with S-Tires. It weighs 900kg. The actual Spoon 1.8L B16B complete engine is actually the same as the Spoon B18C complete engine because the stroke length is the same. A B16B is just a downsized B18C apparently :)

    It's funny that we all have matching RX7s :sly:

    I painted this blue. And I like it.

    Now Eric is getting a black matte one :lol:

    Here is another RE Amemiya made for Urbanite as requested at hybrid trading thread, the color is as close as the one he posted and have a lower custom suspension fitted, still waiting for his response - currently shared :

    Paint is New Imola Orange Pearl, I think :) and she's not slammed, just dropped.

    I made it long time ago in 2.11, it had quite a few miles on the odo, redoing it again with o miles car, fine tuning the engine and turbo, weight and gearbox is taken care of - closest possible to real spec.

    Update :
    Got the engine and turbo combo down, peak HP at 6200rpm. Top speed is a bit lower than real life at 405/6 kmh with 896HP, the real car did 409.9 kmh - maybe the real car has less drag with aero body kit.




    Here goes my new build, 2 of them for requests :

    New Revised Version of Chevrolet Corvette C4 ZR1 "Callaway SledgeHammer" - 1589kg, Twin Turbo - custom 880-898HP - official 898HP, refitted with better custom suspension, 6 speed stock gearbox with 3.54 final drive and custom gearing, capable of 405+ kmh top speed at SSRX.

    Jay Leno Tank Car with stock 6 speed on a custom ratio to reach 200+mph top speed, everything else stock. Built for ZDUPH, also fixed driver gear shifting animation as reported by ZDUPH.



    [​IMG]





    BMW M5 with V12 LMR engine and custom turbo - 1000+HP, massive weight diet at low 1400kg on a stock chassis for now, fitted with lower custom suspension for racing - built for Vinko

    Blaze

    Well, here she is, my very first hybrid..."Blaze." I would like to dedicate this first build to my good friend and mentor, Rido. He is the one who really got me interested in hybriding and has helped show me the way through his own builds. Thank you my friend, I am deeply indebted to you. Now, on to the car. It is Ford Mustang SVT Cobra fitted onto a Chevy Camaro IROC chassis. I used the IROC chassis because it gave a little wider stance than my fiew other choices. The engine was taken from the Ford TransCammer pumping out 668 HP @ 6700 RPM. For the trans, I took a 4 speed from a 2011 Ford NASCAR car just for the simple reason that I like 4 speeds. It also has fixed aero at 20/50 and the suspension is from a Bentley Speed 8.

    There was no real method to my madness here other than just experimenting with my first build. Overall I'm pretty pleased with how it came out. I'm sure the experts will criticize the build and that's fine. I'm not trying to be some expert builder here, just doing it to have a bit of fun.....and I'm sure Rido is probably getting tired of building cars for me. :lol: Anyway, here is a few picks of my first adventure....and please excuse the pics also, I'm no expert photographer either. :)

    Thanks Z for the kind words, much appreciated. And yea, its a blast to drive. Its currently on my HB_CargoRatt account which is not online, (haven't made an e-mail address yet) but when I get that account online, I'll ship the car to my main and put it on share.

    Thanks, it's quite hard to get the engine tuning and turbo sorted out, then the gearing to maximize engine power, but well worth it :)

    The M5 ? Do you still wanted a different chassis ?

    It's a replica of road car F1 LM, only 5 produced, 3 of them in Papaya Orange, built using F1 GTR race car engine without restrictor and lightened chassis with race parts and aero. Due to the aero alone, top speed reduced to just 225 mph, even with lighter weight and more power available.

    This replica is strictly a real expert driver car :lol: It's even trickier to drive than the Yellowbird on comfort soft, needs to be smooth in everything, but when you can exploit the car's turn in, minimize understeer on low speed with trailbraking and medium/high speed corner prowess with good steering and throttle play, she's a real track monster.

    I can't believe how happy I am to hear you build your first hybrid, Cargo. It proves to the rest of us, that with determination and willingness to experiment, anyone can build a hybrid, and you have a nice first car to prove it. I remember my first one was adding turbo on Acura NSX, very simple, no swapping or anything fancy. With time, you'll get better and can make more elaborate cars with very personal identity/tune. Here is to Cargo for his hard work :cheers: Anytime you need a hand with hybrids, let me know :tup:

    Thanks Rido for the kind words, really means a lot coming from someone like you. And yea, this car was like 3 days in the making, experimenting with different things and such and doing a good amount of research. Anyway, you may have created a monster now because I can't wait to get started on my next one now. :lol: I'll let you know when its online so you can take it for a test drive and tell me what you think. :cheers:

    Dodge Ram Laramie King Ranch Limited High Country Platinum Denali Big Horn 1794 Edition


    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    The new for 2013 Dodge Ram Laramie King Ranch Limited High Country Platinum Denali Big Horn 1794 Edition, or Ram LKRLHCPDBHE for short, is the end all, be all of trucks. Ram engineers set out to create a luxurious pickup truck that had presence and intimidation without being a bro-truck. Nine out of ten Texans agree that this is one attractive truck. The other one was a communist bastard. The interior of the Ram is luxuriously appointed with wood from the finest plastic on hand, nappa leather and a sunroof, which comes equipped with a special setting to open only halfway, making flipping off lesser vehicles (imports) on the road as easy as pressing a button. Not only is the cabin of the 2013 Ram a luxurious place to be, but it is also a spacious place to be, with an approximate capacity of fifteen bitches, or about four Texans. Occupying the sprawling hood of the Ram is an eight liter (that's 488 cubes) V10 straight out of an outdated Viper, producing 490 horsepower and over 500 lb-ft of torque, enough to outrun most modern six cylinders. When equipped with the optional towing package, this truck will tow up to fifteen thousand pounds. Those who choose to take their seventy five thousand dollar truck offroad will be pleased to find out that Ram engineers have graced the 2013 model with several additional inches of ground clearance, making driving over small obstacles such as mountains a bit easier. The Ram's earth-shattering power is sent through all four wheels (wheel spin is for the immature) via a six speed automatic (shifting manually is for the poor). Despite the Ram's considerable heft (still less than your mom), it scoots from 0 to 60 in 5.6 seconds. For the fuel-conscious, Ram engineers have kept gas mileage a top priority during research and development. The EPA rates the Ram at 6 miles per gallon city, 9 highway, though engineers note that owners should be able to achieve as much as 11 miles per gallon with the engine in neutral, coasting downhill with a tailwind. Nine out of ten Texans agree that the 2013 Ram is an exceptional truck. The other one drove an import.​
