Season 2 of Comet-Trails is being planned and Comet-Bar Off-Road Accessories is also looking to look into a new base Vehicle to expand the Comet-Tourer line, which currently only consists of the Marksman Tomahawk Comet-Tourer.
Comet-Trails is effectively Patriot Camper’s “Patriot Games” series done by my Australian based Comet-Bar Off-road accessories company, Which is technically the brand/company that won TMMC3 and is most known for the Comet-Bar Marksman Tomahawk 6x6
Comet-Bar recently started filming their test runs and Family adventures (With a company like this they are basically one and the same) of New Equipment last year under the lead of Gareth Kelly who heads the Comet-Tourers and Vehicle Conversion team. Unlike your Mainstream shows, this style of show adventure shows basically has no Script
BTW, here’s a link to Patriot Games to make stuff a bit clearer https://www.patriotgames.tv/
Further Clarification on what an Off-road accessories company and more specifically what Comet-Bar does is because most people are here for cars, not talking about what grade steel a bullbar uses and Approach and Departure angles
- An off-road accessories company is a company that makes parts for people to enjoy going off the beaten track.
- Usually it’s Bullbars, Siderails, Lights, Roof Racks, Trays, and Winches, however, Solar panels and Electricals are also being supplied nowadays.
- Comet-Bar goes a bit further and also provides campers and Off-road Toy haulers, yeah expect more stuff in future, it’s going to be fun, and something I just took from Patriot Campers, Comet-Tourers, which are SuperTourers really… it’s a package built by Patriot/Comet-bar with… all the kit they can throw on 'em and in which you will be building a base vehicle for
Your Brief, to send in a current-generation Mid-top spec off-road or off-road capable Truck or SUV for the Australian/Southern Gasmean Market. Special Editions or Luxo Builds (Top of the Top trims) very discouraged, Comet-Bar needs to buy these new, and they need something well equipped for the price, say your XLs and XLTs but not Denali/Longhorn levels.
This effectively means Don’t try a puny Crossover because that’s not going to effective off-road
and American HD class trucks are also a no-no, because Australia doesn’t get them, your 1500 trucks ETC are fine, but if it needs clearance lights in the US/Canada/Regular Gasmea it’s not going to be considered due to the nature 1500s are already quite big for us Down Under.
- Must be either a Truck or SUV, SUVs can be Chopped
- Max asking Price is roughly 45k, however, Lower the Better and going a little bit over isn’t a Binnable offense
- If it classes as HD or Crossover it is a
- HD trucks are anything Wider then 79.6 Inches or 2.02 Metres
- Crossovers should be easy to identify, usually small economy engines, independent suspension on all corners, with a Monocoque/Light Truck Monocoque chassis, chopping the back half of a Monocoque car will seriously hamper structural rigidity, and we need to attach Comet-Bar Bullbars on Chassis rails.
- 91 and 95 Octane Fuel are your Fuel options, as these are the Petrol options at most Outback Service Stations.
- Trim and Variant year must be 2018
- Naming Convention: Car Family must be TMCC4 - Forum Name, everything else is free reign
- Base load carrying capacity determines what difference the GVM upgrade makes
And do ask for further clarification… I may have missed something.
