HORSEPOWER CHALLENGE brought to you by BIGTIME MUSCLE


AA



A new Challenge Series for the Forza 4 community - YOU pick your cars to compete with !!


This is a new monthly Challenge Series - Each month, we will set a HP range - you choose ANY car (with monthly exceptions) - you build/tune car WITHIN the chosen HP range and compete in a a two leg timed competition. 20 laps at a chosen speedway and 10 circuit laps at a circuit track from the same location. Replays must be saved and times from both legs will be combined to determine over all winner and finishers.


Participants must run the event with "HORSEPOWER CHALLENGE" LOGO on their car - sides or top/hood - available for free download at koolIROCZ1967 storefront - rates appreciated if you deem worthy ;]


You must run the same car for both legs - builds/tunes will obviously need to be changed - but same car must be used


You will race "online" and set your lap numbers - YOU MUST RUN SOLO - no AI cars allowed


Save replays from both legs and label "HP Speedway" and "HP Circuit"


Participants must post their chosen car - HP rating - Speedway time - Circuit time

ex. Murcielago LP670-4 SV - 661 Hp

Speedway - XX:XX.XXX

Circuit - XX:XX.XXX


IF you update your time with a different car - your previous time will be eliminated - only 1 car and time allowed at any given time during the competition.


Times will be combined and totaled - and winners determined.


CONVERSIONS are allowed - cars must remain with the chosen HP range/class chosen.


NO RACE CARS - "CONCEPTS" or SPECIAL EDITION "COMPETITION" MODELS


Winner will receive 200 million credits - 2nd place - 150 million - 3rd - 100 million - rest of the participants will receive 25 million each - most "off the wall" car chosen - 50 million credits


There will also be a monthly Photo comp within the Challenge - 1st - 100 million - 2nd 75 million - 3rd - 50 million and of course, Honorable Mentions.





For our premiere Challenge we have decided on 630 - 670 Horsepower - R3 - cars must be within the horsepower range and remain within the R3 class


Exceptions for this Challenge and ARE NOT ALLOWED - Noble M600 - McLaren F1 GT - Mosler MT 900S


Track chosen - TWIN RING MOTEGI


Super Speedway - 20 laps

East Circuit - 10 laps


Competition ending FRIDAY - SEPT 18 at midnight EST


For our premiere event, I contacted johniwanna at TURN 10 and he has graciously donated PORSCHE EXPANSION PACKS to the first 5 place winners !!!!

*** I am assuming these to be clean laps ??

Well it's not a show stopper or going to win any driving talent awards but for a starter to kick things off I ran the 2012 Porsche Cayenne SUV 4WD . I ran all clean laps because what fun would it be to not try to do that with 4 wheel peel ? :)

Times and replays are up

2012 Porsche Cayenne 666 H.P.

HP Circuit 15.33.768

HP Speedway 14.07.536

One question kool , just for clarification . Can we use lower class cars than R3 and do they have to stay in their original class or is R3 the limit to upgrade ???

Good questions ;]

DRAGGIN - - We would hope for 30 consecutive clean laps but realize that THAT daunting task would be - to say the least - quite difficult and discouraging to most.....sooooo...we would like everyone to run as fairly and cleanly as they possibly can - and the replays WILL BE viewed by the team of judges and any 'blatant' dirty laps will be noted and dealt with accordingly. Scraping the wall a few times or getting your tires just past the rumble strips a few corners is to be expected - Judges have final say on replays. BTW - thanks for the 'Rate' and to be the first participant ;]

voldemortt - ANY car as long as it stays within the HP range AND goes NO HIGHER than R3. Looking forward to seeing what you put together ;] Thanks for joining in ;]

Good questions and glad to clarify ;]

What a GREAT idea for a new challenge !! - really hoping I can get the Country Squire to fall between the set parameters lol =)

Kool, when we change cars are we to go back to previous posts and mark them as N/A or something to that affect ? Might be fun to change cars often =)

Hmmmm...Country Squire......that would definitely be "off the wall" ;]

As far as editing your posts to "NA" - lets leave the previous posts, as others can see and gauge what cars are capable off and they might want to run themselves - When tabulating leader board, I will simply work my way backwards through the thread and take only participants most recent car/times.

Correction, the XJ220 had a twin-turbo V6, not a V12. It would've sounded a lot better with a V12 though. Lol

Ahh , i stand corrected - was still funny as hell though watching the Aussie guys faces as the Transit took off like a bat outta hell

I had a look at the Transit van earlier today and it actually does make the power band necessary for the challenge , with a few modifications , namely a new engine , a Falcon V8 if i rem correctly .

I love the bit when they go to the back of the van and open the doors, when Jeremy says "Look, it even managed to beat you while carrying an extra engine!" XD
