Today's pick, the Ferrari Pinin! Forum Topic: http://forum.stunts.hu/index.php?topic=3685.0
  • Gears: 5
  • Powergear: No
  • Flat track top speed: 196 mph
  • 0-60 mph: 6.25 s
  • Time to bot hill at Default (auto gears): 13.35 s (References: Skyline - 12.45 s; Acura - 12.70 s; Audi - 12.95 s; Ford Crown Vic - 12.8 s)
  • First impressions: My first thought was the dashboard is unfinished/taken from Lancia Delta. After that the car is fine. It has an easy run and it's very fast. Slow acceleration compared to Acura for example but way faster in a long straight line. I like that. It's a well done car, easy to drive and pretty fast in a track with many elements. The name of "Pinin" comes from  Battista "Pinin" Farina, a car designer and founder of Pininfarina S.p.A.

Thanks for the review.

It's the case of the prototype. The interior looks light and sober. For the history, this car was a concept car with some parts not functional (and no engine nor tank). Mauro Forghieri modified some years ago the prototype in order to be used on road.

Added to the first post index  ;)

(By the way, now that the ZakStunts 2022 cars have already been chosen, I guess it would make sense to move this thread to the Custom Cars subforum, right?)

Why? Because you feel unappreciated?
I dedicated an entire special edition to your cars because I appreciate them.

I read all over the forum about what you don't want. The question is: What do you want?
The rules of Zakstunts specifies: "The designer of the competition track used for each actual race can distribute at most +10 and -10 coefficient points amongst the cars, to adjust the power of the cars to the specific track design. The track designer may also decide not to modify bonuses at all. Assigned points will apply only to the current track."

Race for kicks used Ferrari 456 GT built by you for March race and Lancia Stratos for current track.

There is an exclusive thread in the forum to test your cars and to know their performance and characteristics. You could help with this, they are your cars after all but anyway I enjoy trying and testing. We analyzed 18 cars so far.

If you want to manage a competition or an event using only your cars I'll participate.

He has a valid point.
Everyone has welcomed you and we have been supporting and encouraging. We have thought with you and given our opinions to help. Nobody has ever criticized your work.

So, instead of just stating the problem. Be part of the solution. We don't know what you think.
If you can't be part of the solution, we can not help you.

Today's pick, the Lancia Delta 2 TD LS!
  • Gears: 5
  • Powergear: No
  • Flat track top speed: 123 mph
  • 0-60 mph: 11 s
  • Time to bot hill at Default (auto gears): 16.40s (References: Skyline - 12.45 s; Packard Eight - 19.15 s; Toyota Trueno - 15.45 s; Lamborghini LM-002 - 13.25 s)
  • First impressions:  It seems an unfinished work. None of the paintjobs in the showroom are presented in the racing mode, only the basic green skin. About the speedometer it doesn't shows the real speed, for example it marks 120mph where it should say about 70mph. The acceleration 0-60 is good but then it stucks and accelerates too slow. The dashboard is cool, I really liked it. About the info in the showroom is wrong (maybe real data but not ingame data). The grip seems close to the original cars but with such slow speed is hard to say.
