Wight - sports dueller


Corrections and Updates -- Top armor has been improved to better protect the turret by removing the 1-pt metal from U and moving it to T and adding 5pts plastic T. I also caught an error in the hubs/guards - $/wt was for a *single* rather than a double. They've been dropped from 10pt to 5pt so as to keep $/wt identical.

What you are about to see is a test. The Wight was inspired by a model of the Chrysler Atlantic I saw in Hobby Lobby. I took a shot at "modelling" it in Car Wars as a design that could compete in races, duels, or racing duels. The turreted-MG version needs a touch of work to work properly, but I'm throwing this out for the basic design. The table is a result of using Quattro Pro 9 and selecting the "Publish to Internet" option to save the spreadsheet as an html table.


Bayou Motor Carriages is growing! No longer content with offering the normal vehicle modification services and other people's cars, we are offering a brand-new design of our own! Intended for use on the racetrack or the dueltrack, the sleek streamlining of this beauty is nothing but class. We started with a Compact frame and fitted it with elements professional drivers demand. Interested in something a little less offensive and a little flashier? Watch for the BMC Spectre, coming soon.
