Hirochi Start 3.2

The cheapest Hirochi in the world is here!

  1. JorgePinto

    Welcome to the home of the cheapest Hirochi money can buy!

    The idea behind the Start is simple, Hirochi wanted to market a car for selected markets in where owning a car is not affordable for all, so by taking a base-trim Sunburst, and removing and simplifying as much as possible, the Start was born.

    if this is basically a maruti hirochi, i would also suggest to make the frame much weaker (much worse in crashes) and lighter, as it is in real life marutis. a 40 mph crash into a tree with the 1.8 sunburst and the start super does not look too different, so i think it hasnt been changed yet.

    Love all the little details that make it just that little bit more accurate to some of the ultra budget cars I see around here in India

    Excellent mod! Gotta love a classic barebones econobox <3. A huge selection of well thought out and coded parts, plus tuning options. Fully modeled engines, good sound, realistic torque curves, and good Jbeams. The level of detail is really cool, even the fuel efficiencies of the engines are realistic and in line with vanilla. If I could offer some constructive feedback it would be

    1. The Start Super seems to have the max rpm a bit too low, it gives an RPM warning about 1000rpm before redline.
    2. The Start Diesel is geared pretty high, it's running quite high revs for a diesel at cruising speed. going from a 4.11 to a 2.90 final drive brought my fuel economy from around 39 mixed to 45 and still offered good drivability.
    3. The 1.5l engine has the same burn efficiency values as the vanilla 1.8l. IMHO the smaller displacement engine should have slightly higher efficiency.

      Thanks! (And thanks to everyone for your great reviews too!) I will take those suggestions into account in order to achieve as much realism as possible.
