my bet for custom cars in 2013:
we keep 16 cars this year due to the reasons you listed. I definitely want to reintroduce the Melange and also include the McLaren.
So we need to drop two cars: one is the Superkart because it had a controversial reception and a bit sticking out from the rest in terms of realistic approach.
The other shall beither either the Speedgate or the Skyline, as these are included since 2009 as opposed to the Lotus and the F40, which are newer.
And here I was mostly unable to decide. Both have lovers and haters and both are with us since 2009. I was leaning towards dropping the skyline to favor faster cars (due to popular demand). But it felt unfair.
Then I was considering to drop both and introduce a third new car - but which? The xylocaine is not well qualified IMHO, the Toyotas are too slow, others either used formerly or not yet finished. So it came down to the LWT-ZR1 and the Porsche 911 Turbo. Both are quite similar to some original cars, first I decided on the Porsche 911 Turbo, because it was never used in any competition formerly. It is suprisingly different from the Carrera and a good replacement for the Skyline.
But lat minute I modified for the LWT-ZR1 because its handling and behavior is much more different from the ZR1, and also it is bridging the "IMSA gap" and can be well paired with the F40.
So bid farewell for the Skyline and the Speedgate and say hello to the custom cars of ZakStunts 2013:
