CAR TUNE: Project – Wagen Jersey Guide

The Wagen Jersey is a European hatchback in Car Tune. Learn how to build a Jersey, tune it, and drive the vehicle

 

Overview

The Wagen Jersey is a European hatchback based off the Mk3 Volkswagen Golf. The Jersey comes in two variants; a four door hatchback, and a two door cabriolet. The vehicle is powered by an inline 4 engine in a transverse position, running in a front-wheel drive configuration

Body Styles

Hatchback

The hatchback version is the most common version of the Jersey. It has four doors, and has a weight of about 1100 kilograms. The vehicle is turbocharged, even the cheapest versions have a turbocharger

Cabriolet

The cabrio version is the less common version of the Jersey. It has two doors, and has a weight of about 900 kilograms. The notable feature of this vehicle is the fact that vehicle has no roof, however, you can buy one at the parts shop. It has the same engine of the normal Jersey

In this guide, we will be using the cabriolet version as the lighter weight makes it faster overall
If your doing this with the hatchback version, it’s basically the same but use the parts marked for the hatchback version

Arta Corridor

While we are here, let’s talk about the Arta Corridor. It’s basically a Jersey just in a coupe style. Same engine, same suspension system, just heavier and you can put a big wing on it… guhaa!

If you can’t find a cabriolet Jersey, use this instead (then again you can just leave the used car dealer and go back until you find one)

Before we start building our car, we are going to assume that you have stripped down your car to the chassis, like this
DISCLAIMER: Build Costs are aproximate, based off a build from 2020-03-22

Suspension

Wheels and Tires (Pops’ pick):

  • 4x Roheen 19″ x 9.5″ Wheels

Extra Cost: 1,452

Total Cost: 24,603 Cr. + 12,152 Cr. + 1,452 Cr. = 38,807 Cr.

If you have been following this guide correctly, your vehicle should look like this

Engine

The engine is the heart of the Jersey, making a peak of 320hp, but usually outputs ~300.
If you have a better engine tune for this vehicle, tell me in the comments

Testing and Comparisons
But how does it perform?
A normal Jersey can do a mile time of
27.439 seconds

Top speed is: 138 miles per hour
0 to 60mph is: 7.85 seconds

However, this car can do a mile of:
22.225 seconds

Top speed is: 194 miles per hour

If I take off the body panels, it can bairly reach 200mph
0 to 60mph is: 5.24 seconds

Plus it doesn’t spin out when taking a turn nor does it flip over, unless you crash it and cause permamant suspension damage to it (or use the hatchback version)

Damage

Damage is a touchy subject in Car Tune, as touching anything at 15mph will either do nothing, destroy your car, or crash your game. But it’s important to see if your car can still drive after hitting a wall, since you will be doing it a lot with the physics engine

Frontal Impacts (Wall)

30mph
This here, is an example of what I am talking about. A 30mph collision should not destroy both of my front wheels, but it did. There was nearly no permamant suspension damage

60mph
Wonky physics at it again. This time not only it destroyed both of my front wheels, it destablized the car, making it permamantly undriveable

100mph
I tried this twice. First collision resulted in the game crashing, while the second was basically the 60mph collision again, except the suspension conpoments fell off

I will be adding more to this guide, especially the driving segment, in another time
