On the fate of Xylocaine
« on: September 04, 2015, 05:59:42 AM »
I feel the "Xylocaine problem" raised in ZakStunts news is worth a non-binding opinion poll. Relevant quotes, for the sake of completeness:

Quote from: Duplode
Will we *ever* have a Xylocaine race? Should Zak just ban it outright, or alternatively set a month apart for it so that we brace ourselves in advance?
Quote from: Akoss Poo
DUP: Xylocaine race... well, maybe as a bonus track, outside the championship, after ZCT173 finished and there are still 12 days in the year. Just an idea.
Quote from: Marco
Why? Whatvis the xylocaine problem?
Quote from: Duplode
@Marco: Easy handling plus weird powergear, likely requiring a special-purpose, carefully designed track to make the race enjoyable.
Quote from: Akoss Poo
Because racing the Xylocaine is rather about digging deep into the weird and UNREAL physics of the car instead of fast/technical driving. I think Stunts is not about this.

My vote went to Option 5, for various reasons - including that I really like the idea of a ZCTP4  :)

Also Option 5. I would also call it ZCTP4. IMO it shouldn't count into the championship. First week of 2016 can also be the part of the Xylocaine race.

I suppose a well designed track could be fun even as part of the season. Maybe an anti-Xylo track, leaving some hope for other cars? :P

I agree with a ZCTP4 race at the end of the year. It may count for the championship just like the previous zctp (plus tracks from 2002). I don't see any problem as the final match for the title :)

I don't think it should count, as it is a little late for changing the season schedule.

Not very much. There was no Xylocaine race in 2015 (thanks in part to bonus corrections), and its contract wasn't renewed for 2016.
