[for] Formula Genesis

Post by CozmicDragon »

And so it begins... The next generation of racing.

Formula Genesis

The Formula Genesis, also dubbed the CSV FG03, is an open-wheel race car designed as the evolution of the Formula Zero. Built on a modified version of the F0-MDL13's platform, the FG03 sports a 2.6 litre naturally-aspirated V8 and a glass fiber body to give it a 1:1 power to weight ratio (676bhp of power and 676kg of weight). The FG03 is mid-engined rear-wheel drive like most Formulas, and it has a 6-speed sequential semi-automatic transmission capable of powering the car to speeds of around 315km/h. Handling-wise, the car tends to be oversteery, maybe even more so than the Formula Zero, so careful driving may be needed. Overall, it's a rather fun car to drive.

Before I give you the screenies and download link, let me tell you something interesting that happened to me while I was making this car:

Originally, this car was going to be called the Centaur, and would look basically the same, but it would have a much longer wheelbase and the cockpit was going to be a bit bigger. However, I ran into a problem with the physics that made the car have huge amounts of body roll, making it undrivable. But the moment I found out that the "Fix Car Size" function in the Car Editor fixes this, I accidentally saved a blank car over the .CAR file of the Centaur. I nearly gave up on the project, but I picked up the pieces and re-modeled the car from scratch. Noticing it came out with a shorter wheelbase, I decided it needed a new name. After some thinking, I decided to name it the Formula Genesis. The specs, however, are the same as the Centaur would have if I hadn't accidentally overwritten it. I even had the preview pics ready, and once the body roll was fixed it would be pretty much ready for release. And then I did that stupid mistake... Oh well. Since the Genesis is pretty much a shorter Centaur I guess that, if you guys want, I can use it as a base and re-make the Centaur, all I need to do is move a few polies and make some changes to the physics (the Centaur was going to be more understeery due to the long wheelbase).

Enough talk, time for pics and DLs!
