Hey.

The rules are, there ain't no rules.

To the fourth bridge and back.

First one back wins.


New race..
Unfortunately, I have not much time to update everything. But below a new car pack.
I'll update the site in detail as soon as possible, but the race can start in time.

Ok the stars of this month are:
1970 Dodge Challenger
1959 Chevrolet Impala
1958 Plymouth Fury
1957 Ford Thunderbird
1983 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor

Impala, Fury and Thunderbird belongs to the 50's pack so they are quiet balanced, looking for multi-brand races ;)
You'll find their performance in the attached picture, or in the Stunts Wiki.

Ah!  I have to try this one!  Besides, next month I probably won't be able to participate in any tournament, so I should do this one

I've been looking foreward to this one to. The track is made so you have time to make speed. But i havn't tested it with Alan Rotoi 50s pack yet.

November will be the last race of the tournament (6 races equals half a season)
I may do a holiday special in December.

Oh, if November will be the last, then maybe I could record my own replays from Culemborg!

A week later than intended. But the site is now up to date.

Two weeks left to race..

Haha, I made the track a bit more difficult than the original version (which was designed with a live race in mind because of a bug)
But now this track has become quite a challenge for me.  8)

It is a good place to test road cars so I think this version is suitable for the carpack.

I've already posted my replays there! :)

In my haste to get this month's race updated in time I apparently miscalculated the end date. So after a false start we will also finish a day later.

Tomorrow is the last day of racing for this track.
Enjoy.

This means I get to sneak in with a Challenger lap  :)

Sure, but the Challenger is the most challenging to drive.  8)

Race is over.
It was not an even pack this month. Which was by choice because i wanted to see the effect on the scoreboard and the points.
I think that it is better to have a mix. It makes a clean sweep of the high points more difficult for the strong pipsqueaks.
It makes the track more fun I think because of that.

KyLiE and Alan took most of the points again this round. Nice to see some solid racing.
Myself I put most of the available time and effort in the Ford, that shows on the scoreboard in a nice third time.

Next race and final one for this season scoreboard will be a Ferrari one. That will be mostly ryoma car creations, but zappers F40 will be there as well.

Thank you Daniel for using my last and fresh new "50's cars pack". I wanted to build them balanced. 4 pipsqueaks tested all 3 cars of this pack and the positions were like this:

Kylie:  1st Chevrolet Impala / 2nd Plymouth Fury / 3rd Ford Thunderbird
alan:   1st Chevrolet Impala / 2nd Plymouth Fury / 3rd Ford Thunderbird
cas:    1st Chevrolet Impala / 2nd Ford Thunderbird / 3rd Plymouth Fury
daniel: 1st Plymouth Fury1st / 2nd Ford Thunderbird / 3rd Chevrolet Impala


Impala 10 points
Fury 8 points
Thunderbird 6 points

I'm glad about this results because it wasn't expected. The Impala is the car with the slowest top speed of the pack, second in 0-60mph acceleration but the fastest in 0-100mph acceleration.
It depends a lot on the track when the cars are so similar in performance. That is a good way to make a car pack in my opinion.


Cas

The cars felt very well behaved and the racing had its scent of Street Rod. Really good! :)
