Car Infos from Wiki :

The Plymouth Road Runner is a mid-size car with a focus on performance built by Plymouth in the United States between 1968 and 1980. By 1968, some of the original muscle cars were moving away from their roots as relatively cheap, fast cars as they gained features and increased in price. Plymouth developed the Road Runner to market a lower priced, basic trim model to its upscale GTX.

The 1969 model kept the same basic look, but with slight changes to the taillights and grille, side marker lights, optional bucket seats, and new Road Runner decals. The Road Runner added a convertible option for 1969 with 2,128 such models produced that year. All were 383 cu in (6.3 L) engine cars, except for ten which were equipped with a 426 cu in (7.0 L) Hemi.

An Air Grabber option (N96 code) was introduced this year; it consisted of a fiberglass air duct assembly bolted to the underside of the hood that connected to twin rectangular upward-facing vents in the hood with rallye red vent screens. The fiberglass hood box had an “Air Grabber” sticker on the front. When the hood was closed, a rubber seal fitted over the large-oval unsilenced air cleaner. A decal with Wile E. Coyote saying “Coyote Duster” was on the air cleaner lid. The assembly ducted air directly into the engine. The vents in the hood could be opened and closed via a lever under the dashboard labeled “Carb Air.”

The 383 engine was standard with the 426 Hemi the only option available for the Road Runner until mid-year production. The 383 was marketed as the “383 Road Runner” engine.

The (A12) 440 engine option with 3X2 barrel Holley carburetors was added to the lineup at mid-year. The “440 Six Pack” had no wheel covers or hubcaps, only the 15×6″ “H” stamped steel black wheels with chrome lug nuts. It featured a black fiberglass lift-off hood with 4 hood pins and a large functional hood scoop with a red sticker on each side saying “440 6BBL”. The scoop sealed to the large air breather. All cars had a Dana 60 rear axle with a 4.10 gear ratio. Production of the 440 6-BBL A12 option Road Runner was approximately 1,432. The A12 option had an “M” as the fifth character in the VIN, rated at 390 hp (395 PS; 291 kW) @ 4,700 rpm and 490 lb⋅ft (664 N⋅m) of torque @ 3200 rpm, the same torque as the Hemi but at a lower engine speed. The Plymouth Road Runner was named Motor Trend Car of the Year for 1969. Domestic production for the three body styles was 81,125 with an additional 3,295 deliveries in Canada and other countries.

REQUIREMENTS :

GTL-GTR2 Mod by scca1981

(Will also work as a standalone if you only have P&G, but you won’t have anything to race against yet !)

INSTALLATION :

Extract GameData folder to your main GTR2 directory (x:/GTR2) and allow it to overwrite.

No existing data will be replaced.

CREDITS:

* Minilites by THE BRACE, used with kind permission
* Original body mesh by Electronic Arts, half-inched while they weren’t looking
* Model compilation, manipulation and variation, mapping, shading and templating, and all original physics datas by me

THE ENGINES :

Both are based on dyno data published by Mopar Muscle Magazine. One is a stock 383; the was tested after the addition of Hooker Headers, Demon 850 carb, Mopar M-1 intake and Competition high-lift cam.

GENERAL ADVICE:

These cars are not fitted with rollcages, and the only crumple zone is your face. You are strongly advised to keep them shiny-side-up.

ADVANCED USER ADVICE :

Can’t leave things alone? This mod as downloaded requires the GTL_STEX and GTL_TALENT .GTR files, which you’ll have if you’ve installed GTL-GTR2 or P&G. If you’re intending to install it somewhere else for some reason, they CAN be bypassed, but the mod will CTD unless you switch off Cockpit Hands Man. I don’t know why this is – it just is.

PERMISSIONS :

Ask first ! I’ll probably say yes !
