Found Parts
« on: April 26, 2016, 01:33:36 pm »
Every so often, usually when I'm driving around, I'll see a discarded hubcap or a chunk of a bumper laying in the gutter or on the sidewalk. What if you could find twisted exhaust pipes, torn-up exhaust pipes, and the occasional bumper or car wheel while exploring the city?

You find usable car parts lying on the side of the streets in your city?

Maybe? Sr3 was definetley planned to have, junkyard, dealerships, speed shops, catalogs and the newspaper. i maybe missing a few more. One that was never defintley was weather you'd be able to explore the city due the large amount work needed and huge lack of information of the cities at that time period as it was planned to be as historically correct as possible. So i always assumed this one was a maybe.

I really like the idea of Scratching for Parts in the JUNKYARD. The Thrill of finding Unique parts or great deals would be awesome!!! THUS my suggestion is......

In the NEWSPAPER, under parts you can say... MUSTANG FASTBACK breaking for spares. In real life the car would probably have severe accident body damage, but many components still be 100% functional or damage. You would not be able to buy the complete wreck as the breakers make more money selling it piece by piece and each week there could be less and less of the car renaming. and these breakers are not really concerned about performance parts they are not  ENTHUSIASTS there are they to make money so they will sell you a GM 5 Speed racing box for the price of a GM 4 speed box. The WRECK could have been stock or it could be highly modified, by you VIEWING the car you can identify if its a performance part or not,  you could look at what parts left and make offers and when you get back to the workshop you can see the parts true identity and the condition (60% Worn) etc...

Is this still going to be a option to send a item to be reconditioned?
If the game is set in 1970 you could get a NEW 1970 Mustang gearbox, how ever for lets say a 1932 Ford T Bucket you would not be able to get a NEW Gearbox, only a second hand or Reconditioned UNIT.
Surely NEW cars or cars that are upto 5 years old can be purchased threw the Dealership. Were the older will be found in the Newspaper and you would interact directly with the owner(can also negatate priced with them)

SPEEDSHOPS will probably only sell NEW items and maybe there can be a old timer advising you on performance upgrades and trying to sell you more items....

Will we be allowed Wheelie Bars so our High HP Cars dont flip?  ;D ;D ;D

Will we be allowed to Adjust our Tire Pressure?
Shorter distance's focus more on traction. where longer stretches you want a higher Tyre pressure...
and Bigger wheels add more momentum /increase rolling ratio's so cars can reach higher speeds...

Thats why DRAG cars have small wheels but LARGE tyres/slicks/mickey thompsons as everything is about traction NOT about top end /exit speeds

I would think all of that would be in the game, i know tire pressure was planned.
