    What programs will you be using? I'll try to get ahold of them.

    yes, actually i would like to know as well, for that may be a help with design

    i want some input on the design style for the car, there are quite a few options, a couple are in the view of shape, lamborghini, ferrari(enzo, formula 1 body typish), oldschool(new mustang, camaro, challenger, charger, cuda ect..) and pagani(downward slant from back, like a cheese wedge) sooo if i missed anything you particularly like, PLEASE tell me so i can note it.

    What about long front hood, cabin at the back, everything raked back...?


    Check out the Maybach Excelero, think ultimate batmobile!

    My dream GT right there....



    As for what programs I will use for engine design: I myself am going to have to work through a good deal of math myself as any programs that have the freedom I need cost alot and need a 3 year course to program. I will probably use engine analyzer to check viability of certain settings and design aspects. But mostly just to set the base engine. I believe Jediali has some interesting programs for flow but I am not sure.

    Power, whether measured as HP, PS, or KW is what accelerates cars and gets it up to top speed. Power also determines how far you take a wall when you hit it
    Engine torque is an illusion.

    i will be using for engine:
    Solidworks 06 - 3d design and modelling
    cosmosworks - thermal and stress FE testing
    cosmosmotion - component balance
    cosmos flowworks - gas flow

    Damnit jediali you got the stuff!!

    I only have autodesk inventor 8....

    Anyways about the W12 idea... I looked at the thread, the problem with the interferring pistons could have something to do with the fact that it looks like you have a pretty low con-rod/stroke ratio... The one in the Bently had something over 1.7:1 I believe. Might give you a little more space for a larger bore. We all know that a bore:stroke ratio close to 1 is best.

    BTW I am leaning more and more toward a NA engine. I do like the possibilities of turboes but they are really complicated tricky things to get right. If we decide on FI I don't think we should do something as radical as dual twincharge (bloody nightmare) twin turbo would be good.

    Anyways I was wondering if I should make a thread for the engine department to discuss ideas and start cutting down and refining. I know we don't even know for sure what we are designing an engine for but thats part of the fun.

    Of course if a subforum is opened for the UCP car then it would be there.

    Dont worry, just make any threads you feel relevant for now, and if it ever gets decided to make a sub forum again, the threads can easily be moved around.

    In my opinion that's way too big to make financial sense.

    these people have so far been scheduled in:


    I need some volunteers for driveline,chassis,body,electronics and Complete vehicle. I'll help out with complete vehicle too.

    If we get these departments filled in, we can really start on this !!

    Come on people, join this !!!



    PS: this will look nice in your portfolio if we can get it running

    Can I fulfill the position where I insult all your choices and critique all of you if this goes to hell? The position, was it Asshole? This is a pretty cool idea if it goes well - I wasn't around last time this was done but I wish you guys all solid luck - from the outside. I just wasnt to read about the progress then insult people. Is that so hard? Hopefully Quiggs will help me...

    We can have small overhangs. Think of it as a moden Dino 308 GT4.

    On the face of things, it seems all that really needs an indepth look into is the styling and perhaps the engine. What's really expected from the rest? For example, for the suspension ive basically got the idea to run magnetically controlled shock's and progressive rate springs. The chassis will be monocoque construction, made from carbon fibre with an alluminium honeycomb. What else needs to go into those two areas for instance?

    Some designs perhaps?
