Description

Vintage Formula 1 Racecar
Fictional Recreation of Vintage f1 Era Technology

I have tried to recreate the specs as accurately as possible although the car isn't completely based in reality. I took inspiration from both late 60s / 70s era cars with a lean towards the early 1970s. (Cars like MS10 Cosworth or Lotus 72 / 76, ferrari, Mclaren, etc etc)

- Classic High revving 2993cc V8 (Specs based off the Cosworth DFV)
- Double wishbone suspension front/rear
- Low drag Coefficient body
- Accurate 70s Tire specs & Handling
- Fun to drive but challenging to learn and master
- Realistic interior experience, good for VR
- Aero packages from 60s to the later 70s style! Great for variety in races!


------------------------------------------------------------------

Update 1: 4 Aero configurations update, 4 different classic body types!

Update 2: Handling/Setup fixes - Body changes + fine tuning chassis

Update 3: Big configuration changes, new aero! Slight engine upgrade and body improvements

Update 3.5: Less twitchy steering rack, Cockpit updates, new tire sizes, engine sound reworked

Update 4: Aero configurations updates 2 + mirror relocation for a better visual view of behind the car in response to the upcoming RTFR CCCC event
Improved suspension handling, aerodynamics effects have been tweaked, and starting setups have been further improved. Default colors and configurations have been updated.

All body modeling done directly through the LFS Editor program, Some assets were created taking use of supplied original resources already in LFS. The Individual throttle body's and Header tubes were modelled in Solidworks then brought to blender to export and smooth. Reference pictures were used to create the styling and textures to get the look and feel i wanted to really capture the late 60s / 70s F1 era. Overtime i implemented multiple configurations to stretch a wide variety and make races really something interesting to watch as each car was unique.

This Vehicle Mod is inspired by another vehicle.
Inspired by a many different cars, ranging from ms10 Cosworth, RA273, lotus 76/79, etc. The car can be summed up in that its closer to 70s Technology in the tuning with some visuals aspects closer to the late 60s / early 70s.

I'm fighting for my life driving this car. 10/10

In all seriousness, really good job on the overall modelling and configurations on this car. It can't be understated how much detail went into this mod. The multiple configs take the cake with the different eras represented in one mod.

One of, if not the most challenging but rewarding cars to drive right in this game.
Really quick, really fun especially with road super tires. Going full throttle after a turn is so satisfying with this thing.
Fun to competitive race! Fun to time attack! Fun to slide around with road tires! Amazing interior detail! Perfect exterior details and configurations! What more could you ask for? Skins to replicate old F1 races…

Might have some skins in the works..... Cool
This car is somewhat ruined by the ability to have 30degrees steering lock with a steering wheel ratio which feels like 8:1 or less at less than 300 degrees rotation.
Steering rack update helped alot. But I found when reducing total steering angle the wheel rotation was scaling down, so the ratio remained almost the same throughout, so I was unable to get it exactly as I would have liked.

Aw Frown sad to hear that it didnt quite work out. LFS scales the steering turn angle to correspond to the total angle the wheels can turn.

Glad that it helped out a bit and made some impact! you can try setting your IRL wheels steering rotation up through your wheels setting app or in LFS in the Axes/FF tab.
Excellent job! My laptop can only run GPL and LFS so it's nice to have access to a car from my fav era of racing. The thing gets really slidey with road supers and no wings! I'm still figuring it out but it's still been fun learning it.
I noticed each car variant has only one shadow for all - the one without wings. The winged cars look weird on track then, without the appropriate shadow. Is it a bug or a feature? Smile

definitely a bug... I was sure I added the multiple configuration pieces to my LOD2 but will put out a quick update tonight fixing that if I had missed that during my recent update changing all the configurations lol
Is it me or all the configuration share the same aero dynamic settings?
It kind of kills the point imho.
Other than that it is brilliant.
this P166 make me appreciate F1. really exciting and fun to race (with a good setup)

I know Frown no way around it since you cant have aerodynamics be contributed to configuration sets.. Just like tire sizes cant be changed with different configurations either which is another thing i ran into on the P1 and the Phoenix. ( I just turn off the wing aero if im rocking the early spec Wink )

Man really happy to hear this Big grin Big grin. This is exactly the reason why I like making mods, Other racing sims can be intense to run on a older system so having this feature in LFS and the joy of being able to model/drive our favorite cars is so cool.
