Description

1:Whiplash 5:Juno 6:gen

A stock endurance rally rover called Pacemaker. Built with 103 of the finest parts, its root part is Mark2Cockpit.

Testing ideas for a high-speed endurance rally entrant, I wondered how fast Atkara’s 8-wheeled science Rover Mk1 would go with all the science gear stripped out. Fast! 48 m/s on the KSC green. I’m seriously considering taking on a 3,600km trek. :)

Tip of the hat to Atkara…

I drive this with SAS off but my right index finger on the ‘F’ key so that I can strategically ‘Hold’ the attitude when the machine leaves the ground so as to be nicely aligned for landing and/or to arrest a tumble.

Do note that access to Pacemaker is via F- Climb over the nose.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.6.1.

Update 2019-06-22: Pacemaker is now optionally powered by twin Junos and this package also includes a Pterodactyl delivery vehicle. Pacemaker is considered ‘safe’ up to 60 m/s, after which it may begin to body-surf.

If you want to open it out to see what it will do, fly it out to Gilligan’s Island (6 21N 61 31W) – and have fun!
