Yes, i’m hosting 2 challenges at once, but this one will not start until pcc ends.
After the disaster that was I Need Speed!: Detective’s Run, which mainly had the same formula as the critically acclaimed INS: Wanted List and INS: Alcantara, White Box is trying to make something different. The Trip takes you on a wild journey across the USA, from SF to NY, beating rivals and dodging the cops and mob at the same time.
After the judging, a cscs-style story will ensue

IGCD.net: Vehicles/Cars list for Need for Speed: The Run

What year is this set in? Modern day, or 2011 like NFS, or…?

Late 2011, so 2012MY is fine

Happened to notice design isn’t on the list of priorities :>

Thought it would be obvious you shouldn’t submit a multipla

Any model/trim year combination (up to 2012) is therefore fair game.

Correction: It should be 6 tiers.

A 2012 car would thus need to be compatible with WES 11 and have at least standard 00s safety, for example.

1: yes, as long as it’s 2012 or before
2: I’ll fix it
3: yes

I forgot to mention: concept cars are also fine as long as they’re not too wacko crazy (racers only, traffic vehicles must be production cars)

As the original game did have at least one concept car (fpis)

Also, farming equipment and heavy duty trucks for traffic are exempt from emissions
Farming equipment is additionally exempt from safety

Seems the rules are missing something clarifying the “goal” of the challenge, makes it a bit confusing… I think you should specify clearly what the car we are making is for - the cover? the protagonist’s car? car for the racers the player will be taking on?

edit: oop nevermind didn’t notice the tier section

One thing I’ll have to tell you is that I probably sent the car with +0 tech pool in the engine block by accident. I’ve sent you the fixed car in Discord DMs, as you probably might know, and I hope my car can be fixed, just this time around. If not, I hope there is no penalty for a +0 tech pool. And sorry for the inconvenience, I hope you forgive me.

Edit: Forget about this message, it’s now fixed.

The winner cars for each tier will be the protagonist’s cars, the losers will be background racers
