EMG Antilope 2015 3.0

Built like a Rally-Raid T1 prototype, tuned to reach the performance of a Rally car

    Hi everyone! :)

    This is my new creation: the EMG Antilope 2015:


    Where can I start…? I have designed this car to be as fast as a rally car, but with the reliability and the autonomy of a rally-raid prototype. I am not going to write a long description, but instead I am going to show you what the Antilope is all about with a video!


    There is some information I would like to add over the video:
    • The Antilope’s weight is 1140kg
    • The fuel tank size has been increased to 160L
    • The links of all the detachable parts have been reinforced
    • The suspensions have been lightly reinforced
    • The Antilope is equipped with side lamps, to increase the comfort of driving by night in the 3rd person camera
    I truly hope you will like this car! Feel free to send me your feedback! :)

    Love the new version! Pieces aren't falling off anymore :)

    But the Diesel V8 variant needs some work I think. It's very easy to overrev it and damage the engine.

      Thanks! I think I will update some of my cars to fix the detachable parts on them too! Tbh, I am quite happy to have finally found a way to do it :P

      Yes, it’s something I have noticed when I was testing it with the gearbox in ‘’arcade mode’’. It’s not a serious issue in my opinion, because a small over rev don’t make the engine loose power, even if BeamNG display an alert (otherwise I would have not released the update yet). This issue doesn’t come from the engine itself, but from the complex engine + gearbox. The gearbox logic is not perfect, and struggle with this low revving engine. I have made the gearbox ratios way longer that they should have been, making the 6 and 7 speeds almost useless, but the issue is still here, it just happens less often.
      I have chosen to release the update even with this issue, simply because, at this moment, I don’t have any idea how to fix it in a clean way. I could replace the sequential gearbox but an automatic gearbox, but it would be not realistic, and the performance is clearly not the same. I could have made the engine rev higher, but the torque would have been lower, so the point of this engine would not have been the same. My only option is to try to learn how I can modify the gearbox logic

    Well since you gave me a comprehenisve review, I'll try to do the same... :)

    Love the car! Especially the 270hp variant, the other two are bit too powerful for their handling, in my opinion. Too easy to overdrive them and end up on the back in the brush. XD

    Tested them on Endurodrome, as I do with all of my offroad designs, and they did well, for the most part. But I can definitely tell you focused more on handling smoothness and cutting weight, then resilience. The MacPherson front suspension is a major weakness, in my view. They are notorious for losing wheels very easily if they hit a bump wrong, since they only have one wishbone, as opposed to the Double Wishbone suspension design. If that wishbone snaps, the wheel flies off. None of the three models made it past the second lap on En, and all due to snapped-off front wheels.

    Secondly, i believe a simple Ladder chassis would do better, for a heavy duty offroader. Even if it is a bit heavier then Monocoque, it can take more hits and bumps, and keeps the suspension safer.

    Other then that, the cars are great. Lighter weight definitely helps, they are a bit more snappy in acceleration then my Lexxa, even the 270hp model. But Lexxa is considerably tougher, on the other hand, so... yes. Different design priorities, I'd say lol .

    All in all, great handling cars, for most rally circuits. Just a bit on the flimsy side, when it comes to how much punishment can they take, on a more brutal track like the Endurodrome.

      Thanks for the review! You was not forced you know. :P

      This is exactly why the 270hp variant is here. Even if I really enjoy driving the 410hp variants, they definitively need a lot of practice to master them. x)

      For the low resilience of the car, it’s something that will be fixed soon, the update is awaiting approval since yesterday. :P

      Currently, the Antilope is a fragile sprinter, but since I like to cheat a bit sometime, I have increased the resistance without modifying the the structure of the car with some .jbeam editions.

      Honestly, I am not a big fan of the Endurodrome, so the Antilope is definitively not designed for tracks intended to destroy cars. ;)

      PS: With all the issues you get on your car with an AWD transmission, now I perfectly understand why you have choose to go with a 4WD transmission :)
