    Can we have a 69.420l 3 cylinder for this?

    Alright, I want to do some math on this. 1 cubic meter is 1 000 L, so the engine will have a displacement of 69.42 cubic meters (that's a decimal point; I'm assuming you used the European convention of separating orders of magnitude with a period rather than a comma). 69.42 m^3 is approximately the same volume as a perfect cube 4.1 meters (13.6 feet) to a side(!). Were this a perfectly square three-cylinder engine, it would have a bore of 3.89 meters and a stroke of 1.95 meters. Per cylinder. The Wärtsilä-Sulzer RTA96-C, the largest piston engine in existence, has only 1.8 m^3 per cylinder. This has 23.14. Think it's safe to say the engine will dwarf the actual vehicle.




    I totally want it now.

    1. Yes, thats a decimal point.
    2. Off topic, 12:20 am and there are a few superbikes just riding around near where i live, just yeeting themselves to 250+kph.. sounds amazing.. 15k rpm of joy...

    3. On topic, Even i want that.. i wonder how it'll fit though. A engine on wheels with the tiny body attached somewhere? Would be crazy.

    The engines are currently a topic of discussion. Honestly... some of the engines I apparently just... I dunno... I might have miss typed stuff. I thought I took them from something in game, but we can’t decipher where the Devil some of the V8s came from... so I will be remaking them all, so for the moment just ignore the current engine list. That’s gonna get a complete redo (sounds complicated, but it’s really not, for once it’s actually pretty easy)

    It is a topic for discussion though as it is a faithful Hummer creation... but at the same time it’s not... but it’s kinda like... I dunno... Gavril got the contract to build Humvee’s or something as a lot of the driveline components are direct drop ins from the D Series... not because I am being lazy, but because that’s basically what GM did with the actual Humvee’s... and Sithhy wants a Beam version of the Humvee more than an actual Humvee/Hummer. So... take that information as you will.

    speaking of later GM/Gavril based versions, have you considered naming the late model "H1 Alpha" equivalent something like the "B1 Omega"? it would be a nice tie-in with the Rigs of Rods lore, especially considering there's a Charro Zeta now.

    can you please take some time to punctuate your messages a bit? it's quite difficult to understand what you're conveying.

    Yeah, especially on computer screens, a large block of unpunctuated text is hard to get thought. Just something to work on, we're not demanding you follow MLA format like you're back in college. :)
    (For those who don't know, MLA is the set of guidelines most commonly used in US education for very formal writing.)

    As far as "Lore" is concerned... seeing as in my personal opinion... since Beam doesn't really have a proper "career mode" yet to really establish proper "Lore", any questions about that I am gonna point twords @Sithhy™

    As for a proper "real" version... for me this is close enough for me to be fine with it, and I know Sithhy took any parts that I had made that were basically 1:1 real life models and is slowly replacing them with more... ehh... "Lore friendly" versions... like the hoods for instance. Granted, to basically make the thing correct would take minimal modding skill and just a tad of modification to get it to a 1:1 real looking thing. And the JBeams... well... they are all basically 100% a Hummer/Humvee right down to the weights of basic components. So probably next to no modifications would be nessesary there.

    Well... since you brought that up...

    You can thank Sithhy for the name... granted I liked it from the Gavril Omega... brought back good memories... so I didn't argue.

    Road racing sounds great, I could finally beat that 200BX I've been rivaling for years now in a Brutus.
