Realistic Police & Civilian Handling for Carface's 83 Diplomat 1.0


Get the car here:

I've included six different handlings to choose from, acceleration data comes from a road test conducted by the Michigan State police in 1984. HP numbers for this car are listed in most sources as "net" HP, the numbers below are listed as "gross" HP and they are from a reliable rough horsepower calculator.

225 Slant 6
3 Speed auto
140 HP
80+ MPH
0-60 21 seconds
Best handling but least power.

318 V8 2 barrel
3 Speed auto
185 HP
100+ MPH
0-60 13 seconds
0-100 61 seconds
20 second quarter mile time.
Fair power but braking and handling suffer a bit compared to the Slant 6.

360 V8 4 barrel
3 Speed auto
220 HP
110+ MPH
Decent power for an 80's sedan but braking and handling still suffer a bit compared to the Slant 6 model.

318 V8 4 barrel Police Package
3 Speed Auto
200 HP
120+ MPH
0-60 10 seconds
0-100 34 seconds
18 second quarter mile time.
Mainly thanks to a better final drive ratio the police 318 was capable of accelerating faster and reaching a higher top speed than the civilian 360 and thanks to improved heavy duty suspension and brakes the police package V8 cars also handled noticeably better than civilian models.

360 V8 4 Barrel Police Package
3 Speed auto
220 HP
125+ MPH
0-60 9 seconds
0-100 25 seconds
17 second quarter mile time.
The 360 V8 was also available for departments that wanted a little extra power and was favored by Highway Patrol and State Police units for it's slightly higher top speed and slightly better acceleration times.

360 V8 "Muscled Up" Diplomat
3 Speed Auto with an upgraded valve body for quicker shifts and less transmission slippage.
285 HP
120+ MPH
0-60 ?
0-100 ?
Quarter mile time ?
Believe it or not people looking to build a sleeper or a more affordable alternative to a muscle car will often use this final incarnation of the Chrysler A-body as a low budget muscle car, drag car or sleeper project.
The "Muscled Up" handling represents a 360 Diplomat that has had some minor engine and driveline modifications to increase performance on a low budget. I also have a livery for it with a black hood and black R/T stripe lol.

It may be a far cry from the powerful Mopar muscle cars that the Chrysler corporation once produced, but if you squint your eyes hard enough this sedans gleaming chrome trim and rumbling V8 engine just might be enough to pacify your cravings for an entry level "muscle car". At first glance the 1977-1989 Dodge Diplomat/Plymouth Gran Fury may appear to be just another 80's luxury sedan, but under the skin it is actually the final incarnation of the Chrysler corporations A-body platform which saw major sales and motorsports success through its near thirty year run starting with its debut as the Dodge Dart in the mid sixties. This final incarnation of the A-body platform would mark the end of an era, as it would be the last line of RWD V8 passenger cars Chrysler would produce for over a decade, as well as the very last line of passenger cars to offer Chryslers beloved 225 Slant six cylinder and "L.A." series small block V8 engines that had been in production mostly unchanged since 1966 (and even earlier in the case of the Slant Six).
This would also be the very last Chrysler passenger car that offered a 4 speed manual transmission, although the option was offered it was very rarely selected and is found more often in the Diplomat S-Type coupe than in the sedans.

Inverse power by IKT is a must have mod if you are sick of the game letting off the gas for you in the middle of a slide.
