    There's so many people in this group, it's amazing. But with the last competition, we saw 2 competitors. 2 out of 100s! It makes me sad. I spend my time to plan these competitions, and then it turns into a 1v1. For this reason, I'm doing some big changes on how this group is going to run.
    1. Competitions will be shorter. Much shorter, only 1 to 2 events per. This is to make it easier for people to only need to race once or twice to enter into the competition.
    2. There will be a much larger diversity of challenges, from procedual tracks to even bus-route speedruns! This will give much more to do, and hopefully be less boring.
    3. I need a count of all people who want to participate before each championship so I can more efficiently distribute my time, and even make changes/cancel if needed.
    4. Side competitions. I know many of you have requested this, and I think I will be implementing it soon. This will be a more community-run part, where you guys will give suggestions and a group of moderators (see next point) will either create a thread or pass.
    5. More moderators. It's always hard for me to be the only one to run this, no matter how small it turns out to be. With the exception of @DriftinCovet1987 who's been consistently helpful through the championships.
    6. Feedback! I'm going to be much more pressing on getting feedback, as I'm not the most creative mind here by far, and I can't make a decision for everyone. No matter what the feedback is, critisism, suggestion, etcetera, it's always helpful.
    So what are your thoughts on these changes? Is there anything else I should address, any questions you have, or just general comments I'd love to hear it :)

    Some of the challenges could use modded cars, as they can be quite a bit of fun. Let's say with hiigh power RWD hill climb cars. We could just set few limits like it has to be over 800kg, it has to have between 800 abd 1100hp. And of course it has to be RWD with stock in game tires. Some more crazy challenges like taking a base spec moonhawk, but V10 swapped with stage 2 turbos and automatic trans + open diffs would be interesting. Throttle control would definitely be the key in something like that along woth preserving the brakes.

    It's been on my mind for a while, I was even thinking about making mods specifically for the championship, or at least setting limitations on mods, and I will be doing that shortly.

    I love that idea! We could get a few skin-makers to make a special livery for the winner's car or something. I'll keep that in mind :)

    Yes, any suggestions/feedback helps. Read number 6 on the list, it goes over it a bit more.

    Just make your own configs from the mods that you want to use, and then upload them along with links to the selected mods.

    I'd absolutely be interested in a bus-route speed run. I think that if we are going to have a speed run, we should have a couple rules regarding...

    *The version of the bus that we use if we pick only stock versions (the Highway version is the fastest, the City version is the slowest, the Base/Safari/Zebra versions are in the middle)
    *Whether or not we should make hard stops
    *Whether or not we should stop at intersections
    *Whether or not we can do any upgrades to the bus (outlawing or allowing the JATO rockets because they can be considered as cheating or a handicap)

    Yes, I thought of that while writing about the post, and it instantly struck me as one of theoar fun things to do.
    About JATO rockets, I could make a version with a teeny tiny bit of fuel or power so it wouldn't be too much of a boost, and the extra weight would slow acceleration a bit.

    I was thinking something completely different- using the Old Cannon. I was thinking maybe having a race around the ETK Driver Experience centre, with the Old Cannon, and with lots of the corners being the 'wet' ones. (Just a silly idea I thought of)

    Buses on procedual tracks with first person driving only would make for an interesting challenge :D
    Or First person only with massively overpowered and badly tuned drift car :)
    Or just A great Race car, but in totally unsuitable place, like racing a hill climb car on dirt or a high power RWD race car on tight procedual track :)
    Video of what I mean:
    (most likely still processing)

    I agree, and on the note of modding maybe we could do a Formula R race or even a NASCAR race with the Late Model Stock Car mod.

    Ooh NASCAR could be a fun concept - maybe on the ring in ETK Driver Experience Centre or the Ate-Ona mod?

    I'd like to do that, but a big part of both is overtaking and playing alongside others. So unless everyone that participates can run about 9+ AI drivers or multiplayer is invented, it's not going to be as fun as it should be.
    One of the best maps if it didn't have FPS issues :p
    The bus has a surprising turning angle/radius, it's its' size and rigidity that makes it so hard to speed through hairpins. Perfect!

    I have the worst computer ever and no FPS issues on the Indianapolis map. Plus a lot of games have NASCAR time trials where it's just you sooooo

    Here's another idea I had - you know how there's that drifting event in one of the Campaigns in the base game, using the Grand Marshall Drift Missile? Well, I was thinking if someone could recreate that points system, we could have a sort of Gymkhana event! (might make for a neat little side-challenge)

    I have an interesting idea.
    What if we make a LeMons/ChumpCar-like championship? Set a maximum price for cars (5000 BNG credits for example) + certain cars over this limit that qualify (like certain GM and I-series models that are priced unrealistically high), factory versions only, no mods except tires, rollcages and cosmetical changes. This could be held on Hirochi Raceway or a similar raceway.
