I've been away for a while, but thanks to a ridiculous amount of spare time in a few days I finally finished what I started. The following changes have taken place in that time:
Didn't change really. I felt like the balance between realism, fun and being different from what is already available was pretty good. Just so I have something to type here I'll give a list of flat road top speed per gear:
1st gear 77 MPH
2nd gear 94 MPH
13rd gear 111 MPH
4rd gear 129 MPH
5th gear 143 MPH
6th gear 153 MPH
A few minor changes, a bit of cleaning really. It still looks a bit buggy in the showroom, but there doesn't appear to be a whole lot I can do about that.
Complete overhaul. Say goodbye to the bugs (well, except that one that made me drive up the wall ones in the replay I attached, but that one didn't come from the dashboard) and hello to a reasonably looking interior, compared to the last one at least. The kart is equipped with the latest in flashy steering wheels and digital technology. And the meters work pretty well this time around. It may look slightly unconventional in places, but you'll get used to it.
Okay, with that out of the way you'll notice that if you open the zip file there's a track inside, nice and small, like the car itself, called Craspher (Crashper's didn't fit). I am hosting a mini race event here on the forum, to give everybody the opportunity to get used to the kart and to see what they can do with it. To compete you must send me a replay, over PM or mail or something, before Sunday the 12th of September 20.00 central European daylight saving time, so that's GMT+2, but for many of us also the normal time. (It's not forum time though, in forum time replays have to be in before 19.00.)
If you send me your time before 20.00 on every Sunday or Thursday until that time (no need for a replay, I'll believe you) you'll end up on the scoreboard, which I'll try to update more or less as quickly as I can, here in this thread.
This is a RH race, although NORH is of course always allowed. On top of standard rules you MUST go through the loop and the cork. I don't care how you go through them, as long as you go through.
Any questions? Good. Let the games begin then, and don't hesitate to tell me that the kart is awesome (or not).
