Mountain Dance [OOC] (Open!)

Postby Westeastern Dicantia » Fri Oct 23, 2020 1:56 am

Image


Japan, the year 2000. Initial D Second Stage just ended its run and the drifting and touge scenes are as alive as they ever were. Lately, though, a user calling themselves Mochizaka has made posts on every major street racing forum looking for applicants to a new team based in Nikko, home of possibly the most infamous touge in Japan, Irohazaka. Referring to themselves also as a "Downhill Specialist," they appear to have the confidence to ask interested parties to meet at the gas station near the start of the highly technical downhill run on February 22 at 02:00. At first they were dismissed as another おたく who's hooked on Initial D and Hot Version, but there have been reports from users around Tochigi of a stock-looking RX-7 FD doing solo runs for hours in the night.


And that, friends, is where you come in! Mountain Dance is a character-driven RP, with racing results decided in this OOC thread. No crazy mechanics here, most results will be decided by a coin flip unless the participants have their own plans. Nods and direct draws from Japanese car culture are highly encouraged as well as the use of related media like Initial D, Wangan Midnight, Tokyo Xtreme Racer, and Over Rev! as character, car build, or storyline inspiration. I'd like to keep it pretty grounded, so if there's not a good excuse or some catastrophic downside to your 800+ hp build, than I'll have to decline. Speaking of which, there will be separate character and car applications so feel free as well to have side characters or even a team like Impact Blue with a driver and a co-driver. Absolutely feel free to make your character clueless as well if you'd find it more fun. Also keep in mind that the announcements were posted on Japanese-language forums. It's okay to be from somewhere else but your character better speak the language at least in that capacity. Obviously the RP itself will be in English but please take that into consideration.

The rules


1. Your character cannot and will never be Takumi Fujiwara, ie, the laws of physics apply here and there's no black magic Fujiwara Zone fuckery where an ae86 with 200 hp and no weight reduction can keep up with a car with twice the power and similar weight. I highly recommend looking at some guides for various disciplines of racing and keeping some basic knowledge of racing lines, over and understeer conditions, and other principals in mind regardless of your character's knowledge.

2. Excessively extreme cars are not allowed. Don't try to sneak past me with a Devil Z that the driver can perfectly control all the time.

3. Any other form of god-modding is banned. The most skilled drivers in the world make catastrophic mistakes and your character will find themselves in a situation they can't get out of eventually.

4. Injuries and death exist. They're a fundamental reality of racing. While sending your S13 over a guard rail might not kill you, you and your car both won't be in great shape depending on the circumstances of the crash.

5. Word from OP is god. Discussion and rebuttal are encouraged but disputing fundamental things will not earn you my favor.

6. This is an RP about having fun, don't get too bent out of shape with a ruling and find ways to help other players who suffer misfortune. We make this fun as a group!

7. As usual, all NS forum rules apply.

Example app


NAME: Mochizuki Saki
TEAM: Founder, Seven Star Leaf (don't @ me Initial D snobs I just like the name)
GENDER: Cis Female
AGE: 22
PLACE OF ORIGIN: Nikko, Tochigi Prefecture
PHYSICAL APPEARENCE: Saki is a tad above average height at 5'8" but quite thin, barely breaking 125 lbs. She has a round face with not at all prominent cheekbones and a soft chin. She has green eyes and straight, brown hair she usually keeps up.
Image

GENERAL DRIVING EXPERIENCE AND SKILL: Saki basically has no other hobby than driving at this point. She got her license at 18 and spent the years saving up for her RX-7 behind the wheel of a 91 Suzuki Cappuccino, in which she became quite fast. Or as fast as one can be in a Kei car. She's becoming accustomed to the Mazda now and the strange power delivery of a turbo rotary engine and has done dozens of runs down the mountain in the weeks since she bought the car. In general, though, she's quite skilled for someone her age not racing in any formal sense. She has good car control, excels on braking, turn-in, and maintaining mid-corner speed, and now knows just about everything about her home course from four years of practice.
BACKGROUND/PERSONALITY/ETC.: Having little prior background in cars, she's incredibly enthusiastic to learn new things about driving since none of the rest of her family considers cars more than appliances. Her childhood in general was unremarkable, but living in the shadow of the mountains and watching the headlights of people late at night ripping down the pass captured her imagination like nothing else had. When she finally did give it a go, the Cappuccino was an instant hit with her for its size and incredibly low weight, making it very easy to throw down the mountain. Six different crashes in different places quickly taught her to respect what she was doing but never faltered her spirit. She's never raced another car on the touge before, however, and the thought has intimidated her to no end. Outwardly, though, she's very confident in herself and frequently assures her friends she'd beat anyone, especially in her new car. When she's not behind the wheel, she's browsing forums and posting cryptic topics, reading Over Rev!, and watching Hot Version and Initial D in between her classes at Hakuoh University which she only really succeeds in because of her family's insistence that she can't be a touring car driver.
ACHIEVEMENTS/BOASTS Frequently calls herself a downhill specialist and Irohazaka record holder with absolutely nothing to back that up.

NAME: Magnus Hermann
TEAM: Unaffiliated, but mildly interested in joining a team.
GENDER: Male
AGE: 32
PLACE OF ORIGIN: Berlin, Germany
PHYSICAL APPEARANCE:
6' 3", 180lbs, could probably do with a haircut.
Image

GENERAL DRIVING EXPERIENCE AND SKILL:
Germany's hardcore driver's education and licensing programs mean that Magnus is a calm and collected driver. Building his car a few mods at a time means that he has had plenty of time to adjust to its improved performance. What der C loses in the turns thanks to its nose-heavy weight distribution and general heft is made up for in corner-exit acceleration and effortless straight-line speed, and getting slowed down is no issue thanks to autobahn-grade brakes. He is generally familiar with the touge around Tokyo, though not like the back of his hand, and this slight knowledge deficit means that he will sometimes back off and play it safe rather than do anything potentially stupid. He's definitely quick, but not suicidal.
BACKGROUND/PERSONALITY/ETC:
Despite hailing from Germany, Magnus spent much of his childhood in Tokyo as the son of the German ambassador to Japan. He returned to his home country to attend Heidelberg University and start a software company with a few friends, but packed up and headed back east after the firm was bought out by Siemens AG and a lucrative management position opened up at Mercedes-Benz's Japanese headquarters. In his free time, he enjoys browsing Japanese, German, and English-language automotive forums, reading the Initial D and Wangan Midnight manga, listening to industrial rock and metal, and going for spirited drives on Tokyo-area touge passes. He is typically German, more reserved and generally not boasting about how fast his car is, preferring to let it speak for itself.
ACHIEVEMENTS/BOASTS Briefly held record for the fastest Munich-Berlin autobahn run (true)
FORUM USERNAME: kompressorgaijin68
OPTIONAL THEME SONG: Foo Fighters - The Pretender

YEAR: 1998
MAKE: Mercedes-Benz
MODEL: C43 AMG (W202-generation)
APPEARANCE:
Image

WHEEL/TIRE: widened factory-look AMG monoblock wheels, Pirelli PZero performance tires
ENGINE INTERNALS: Lightweight pistons, forged crankshaft, more aggressive cams, ported & polished valves, performance intake manifold & throttle body, ECU remap, high-flow titanium headers and exhaust with remote-controlled bypass valves
INDUCTION TYPE: Renntech supercharger and intercooler kit (delivers 450 wheel horsepower combined with the internal upgrades)
DRIVETRAIN: RWD, factory 5-speed automatic with high-speed shift kit and speed limiter delete
WEIGHT REDUCTION: The titanium exhaust should shave several pounds off, but it's his daily so there's no other weight reduction. It's a chonky boi.
CHASSIS/SUSPENSION: Stiffer front and rear sway bars, adjustable coilovers, Teflon bushings, front and rear subframe braces, front strut tower brace, and cross-drilled Brembo brakes with track-spec brake pads and braided metal brake lines.
AERODYNAMICS: Brabus ducktail spoiler, subtle hood louvers and front fender vents.
OTHER: Stickers for FC Bayern Munich, KMFDM, Rammstein, Ministry, and Nine Inch Nails in the rear window, deleted AMG and model designation badges.

I honestly can't accept this in good faith. A 32 year old german man showing up to a car meet full of people like 5+ years younger than him is so weird, not to mention having all these fairly bespoke modifications to a really new car. I'm also incredibly suspicious of someone buying a car that cost the equivalent of about 88 grand in 2020 dollars and having such an extensive modifications list. Not to mention the comparatively gigantic 4 liter engine which would be very expensive to keep around thanks to displacement taxes. As well as the founder of a software firm randomly jumping into management at Japanese Mercedes-Benz. I get the whole concept, guy tries to wheel a big grand tourer down tight roads, and it's not a bad idea in the slightest but there is so much money in this car that it'd be in its own league compared to a few young enthusiasts with easily obtainable mods to their cars. There's a reason I said achievements and boasts didn't need to be true.

OK. Figured it might have been too OP anyway, but I just wanted to chuck it out there anyway. As for the story, I came up with it on 3 hours of sleep, so that's the reason for that. I'll come up with a better app for take 2 and I'm sorry to waste your time.

Oh no you haven’t wasted my time at all. Perhaps I came across too harshly, but your character honestly just didn’t really fit what I’m going for and I know that can be difficult sometimes to suss out.

NAME: Tanaka Kenjiro
TEAM: Unaffiliated but could join a team as long as it doesn't conflict with work
GENDER: Male
AGE: 26
PLACE OF ORIGIN: Shimotsuma, Ibaraki Prefecture
PHYSICAL APPEARANCE:
6'-1", athletic but not totally jacked.
Image

GENERAL DRIVING EXPERIENCE AND SKILL:
Tanaka Garage's enviable location between Tokyo's wealth and some of Japan's greatest driving roads meant that his position as the shop's test driver gave him valuable experience behind the wheel of everything from a Rover Mini to a Diablo SV up and down the mountain roads surrounding Shimotsuma and means that Kenjiro, while not calling himself an expert, might as well be one. Irohazaka isn't his preferred test pass, but he's still pretty fast both up and down it. Having a relatively big and powerful engine in the front of his small, lightweight truck means that he has excellent car control and throttle control, as adding 50% more engine and 200% more horsepower resulted in nose-heavy weight distribution and a definite bias toward oversteer. Overall, he is a confident and highly talented driver.
BACKGROUND/PERSONALITY/ETC:
Growing up around his father and uncle operating Tanaka Garage instilled a love of all things automotive in the young Kenjiro. As soon as he turned 18, he purchased a used VW Scirocco GTI and modified it piece by piece when not wrenching on customer cars. After losing his beloved Scirocco to a fuel leak and resulting fire, he turned his attention to their former shop truck, transforming it from a battered old junk hauler into a serious street machine. He is interested to see if this Mochizaka is as good as they say, or just another loudmouth with more money than talent: in the latter case, he'll enjoy beating them in a quarter-century-old truck. He's a little bit cocky (though able to back it up) and can occasionally rub people the wrong way, but is unfailingly polite to shop clients and generally a nice guy.
ACHIEVEMENTS/BOASTS None he's mentioned on the forums.

Kenjiro might have a more even match than he expected, then. (Actually, I gotta fix my app. I goofed and did his name in Western order. Whoops.)

GENERAL DRIVING EXPERIENCE AND SKILL: Suzuki did not have an initial with driving, but grew to appreciate the hobby through their father who was a mechanic. After graduating High School, they left to return to their mother's homeland in Brazil where they started to learn the ins and outs of street racing on the narrow streets. Leaving only when they started to annoy a gang affiliated racing team, Suzuki left and returned to Japan. After returning, they took up a job as an ambulance driver and learned how to drive fast and take necessary risks. Their style of driving involves high risk gambles that have so far gone in their favor, and behind the wheel of their 89' BMW E30, they are force to be reckoned with.
BACKGROUND/PERSONALITY/ETC: Born to a Japanese man and a Brazilian woman, Suzuki learned very quickly to be steadfast in the face of criticism in the wake of being of half foriegn decent. Suzuki, as a child they grew up solitary but quickly gained the friendship of a neighborhood friend, a boy named Kira who quickly became their partner in crime. After entering high school, Suzuki's delinquency began to flourish, and from it came a love of street racing as Suzuki and Kira both started to pay more attention to their parent's mutual workplace, the Auto Shop. Learning the tools of the trade from their father, Suzuki and Kira built their first car, a 1981 BMW 325i. The car would accompany Suzuki after high school as they ventured in to their mother's homeland of Brazil, and lived with her grandmother in Sao Paulo. There Suzuki found themselves in the Sao Paulo racing scene, mostly dominated by gangs and the occasional freelancer. A decent racer by any metric, Suzuki was able to make her mark on the city in their bright red BMW, but as their popularity grew so did the notoriety. Their vapid taunting to the local gangs at the end of every race began to culminate in a violent fight that nearly costed them their life. After this incident, Suzuki's grandmother agreed in letting her return home to Japan where it was safer, and as they arrived home they quickly went back to the life they once knew back in Brazil, street racing. Finding a new home in Tokyo, they found employment in the government as a ambulance driver. The homecoming wasn't over as they returned to Yokkaichi, they met up with Kira who had taken up a job at his father's auto shop, and asked for a favor; a new car to make their mark in their homeland. A 1989 BMW E30 was their weapon of choice, customized to Suzuki's liking.

Suzuki is tempered by hardships domestic and foreign, and generally takes laid back but cocky overall.

This is close in terms of performance. Kenjiro's much more familiar with Irohazaka than Suzuki and his truck is definitely lighter and grippier, but it's less powerful and down a gear compared to the supercharged V8 and 6-speed in the Bimmer. It's also lighter than Saki-chan's FD, has the same amount of gears, is only down by ten horsepower, and has a way more usable powerband compared to the rev-the-balls-off-it torquelessness of a rotary engine, but most likely loses in the corners because solid axle/leaf springs in the back.

Good, I'd hate for Suzuki-chan to die before the other characters learn her fascinating backstory.

Okay so it's abundantly obvious that you haven't fully read any of the information for this and for such little background that's really lazy of you. Go back and read the whole op one or two more times and definitely look at the accepted applications in the thread so you can apply with an understanding of the world and the premise.

Denied.
