BRC 1966 - Gentleman Brobots Club [RACE 6 P&Q]

Image

After a long wait and lots of work the time has finally come to start the next season of the Bavarian Racing Challenge: 1966! Running on a much more powerful engine (pun intended), this season will be more fun than ever. Not only have the underlying calculations been adapted to the original track simulation in Automation (or the other way around), the visual and auditive experience should be better, too. In addition to that, weather and pit stops are now simulated. Another factor of uncertainty which should add to the overall experience. Many new tracks will make too much finetuning senseless and unneccessary.
Here you find the BRCTool, a little helper to set up your entry. Instructions can be found in the readme.txt. Please ask in this thread for support.

Feel free to post questions and ideas in case something remains unclear! I'm looking forward to running this challenge a LOT.

How to modify your race strategy
It is allowed to change race strategy during the season. Just use the BRCTool like you did when first submitting your car. But then only send me the *-Info.lua file. This one contains all the information of the form except for the actual car, which must stay the same.

Re: BRC 1966 - Gentleman Brobots Club [PREPARE]

Weight and safety have any repercussion on crashes/car damage?
The overall car reliability have some influences too?

Re: BRC 1966 - Gentleman Brobots Club [PREPARE]

Good idea! Currently it is based on durability (avg. reliability). But maybe your stats work better. I'll include something like that or maybe a mixture of safety, reliability and weight.

Re: BRC 1966 - Gentleman Brobots Club [PREPARE]

To calculate the fuel tank size, what do you mean by foot print? Just wheel base x length?

Also how is fuel consumption done?

Re: BRC 1966 - Gentleman Brobots Club [PREPARE]

The footprint is body length * body width (these values can be found in the trim .lua file).

The fuel consumption is calculated in realtime using the BSFC graph, current engine RPM and throttle position.

If anyone else wants it for design purposes, this is my fuel-use estimation post from the BRC 1955 thread. Remember to do unit conversions - e.g. 1 hp is 0.7457 kW - and that the races are 1.5 hours long.

How does one determine the precise engine economy at max power?
