This challenge has since been cancelled! Please read latter posts. Between now and late December this year, our SlipStream Discord community will be running a large event, called the Rush Rally. This challenge is not for the faint hearted! The Rush Rally will involve you and your team making a car from scratch, and then driving it as far as you possibly can before a set finishing time later this year. Along the way, there will be numerous bonus events scattered around to help boost your points, and give you a better chance of winning. The team with the highest number of points by the end of the rally will win. Teamwork is very important here, and so is choosing the right vehicle. This challenge will be based almost entirely within the SlipStream Discord server. Hopefully, by the end, we'll end up with around 10-20 new vehicles for the game, which I think is a nice trade-off for everyone else who isn't taking part. Rules: (RRM is short for a Rush Rally Moderator, of which there are a few of within the SlipStream.) You must enter with a team of at least two or more people. If you want to go solo, please ask an RRM. Please bear in mind that being part of a team is very useful in this challenge, both in helping with progress and in driving (more info on that later) It's important to come up with a good team name, not only for the fun of it, but also for your own unique role on the SlipStream when you join. Your vehicle must: Have not been already made/released for the game (excluding meshlaps/'Russian Mods'/abandoned projects etc) Be based on a real car Be made as accurate to the real car as possible Be branded as a lore-equivalent vehicle, in order to go onto the repository at the end Have been mass produced (some exceptions allowed, eg batch produced; ask an RRM) Be designed for road use Be road legal Be/have been able to be bought by anyone from a manufacturer dealership Not classify as a supercar or muscle car Run on petrol (gasoline), diesel or biofuel only - hybrids and EVs are not allowed Once you have chosen a vehicle to make, you must ask an RRM whether it is able to be used. Every aspect of your car must be made from scratch. This includes models, textures and JBeams. However a few common parts are able to be used, eg stock game tyres (if they match real spec), stock game engine sounds, mirror reflective textures etc. Likewise, you must not share any parts with an existing vehicle, other than the obvious (manufacturer badges, etc if applicable) You must post progress of your car being made, whether that's textures, models or jbeam, regularly. This is so we can make sure it's all custom and legit. Your must aim to have your vehicle of similar or higher quality to an official vehicle. RRMs are allowed to help guide you with making your vehicle if you're struggling with a certain aspect, for example JBeam or model polyflow. You may post progress on a forum thread as well as on Discord, however you must not release your vehicle, under any circumstances, until the challenge has ended. The only people allowed to have your vehicle during the challenge are your team and the RRMs. The main event will not start until all of the team vehicles are ready. Entries must be made before Sunday, July 21st, in order to keep our vehicle completion dates timely. The goal is to have all team vehicles ready to enter by mid August or sooner. More information on the main event, including rules and other information, will be posted later, in the SlipStream. The SlipStream itself is a large community of mine, which was started about 2 years ago. It has over 100 members, and is a relaxed server, mainly focused on BeamNG, but also other miscellaneous games/hobbies, as well as a wide variety of other channels. We currently have four different teams, with their own vehicles. You are welcome to join any of them if they give permission. Their vehicles include: 1984-1991 Renault-Alpine GTA (my team!) 1983-1989 Nissan 300ZX 2014-present Ford F-Series 1995-2003 Mitsubishi Mirage These teams have already begun making their vehicles, but don't worry, we're all at very early stages right now As you can see, we already have various types of vehicle entered. You can enter any car you like, as long as it suits the rules. The main aim is not to win - but to have fun taking part! So, it's important to make a vehicle you're really interested in making, rather than one that's focused on winning the rally. After all, you and your team will be driving around 7,000 miles (~11,250km) during the main event, so you may as well have a vehicle you're going to very much enjoy driving.

This challenge is a standalone creation of mine, which was actually dreamt up as a bit of fun for some vehicular competition while I was making my Alpine GTA. You can probably tell that I like a bit of a challenge!
