I received an :idea: about adding new contest cars to competition:
Quote
How many car teams are in Indy Racing Cup? One, the Porsche/March. But would be interesting if there are more cars with the same skill of course, for example the Lola/Buick and the Penske/Chevrolet. We can make the two new cars (no more than two I guess, because more cars would be a mess). The performance will be the same in the three cars as is showed in the table:

 Acceleration PM-4; LB-3; PC-5
 Curve adhesion PM-4; LB-5; PC-3
 Power Gear - yes for all
 Top Speed - the same for all

PM = Porsche/March; LB = Lola/Buick; PC = Penske/Chevrolet
 
So the LB's accel. is a bit slower than the other cars but it's very good in the curves. And the PC have a great accel. but it's a bit stupid in the curves. And final performance is the same for all, the pipsqueaks just choose the car they want every month as they wish.
 
Then the competition will be a real Indy Racing Cup!!! After the test of the cars we can publish the detailed specifications of each car :)

Waiting your votes and comments :!:

yeah, international stunts association is an old idea, now dead. FSC was partner with ISA

is it partner with IRC?

and IRC is mingva's property or are there other pipsqueaks managing it?
It is reasonable to expect that genetic influences on traits like IQ should become less important as one gains experiences with age. Surprisingly, the opposite occurs.

I am the guy of the idea to add more INDY cars. I still think it's very cool idea but when I tried to build the cars I noticed that is too much harder than I thought.

It's very easy to change the values to do a car with less acceleration or with more curvy adhesion, but when I wanted  to equal the performances I found a problem.
It's almost impossible to me. The curve adhesion values are very vague, or the car turns like a IMSA or a INDY or the Skoda (more or less). I mean there aren't intermediate values and at the time to equal the performances I can't be precise.

So I'm happy because the most of you don't want it!!!! :lol:
