      So I have some ideas.

      Maybe there should be more 'standard' races. I mean all cars the same, so it's more down to driving skill/luck and not having a good upgraded/tuned car.

      Something like a figure 8, with the tri-car, 10 laps. That way the people that start in front don't have the total advantage of missing out on the carnage.

        Yeah, this game is clearly not built for esports. I would like to do another one of these sometime.

        Why not just lock the races to certain classes?

      Mods to consider:

      The first mod disables assists for all clients. The minimap and camera are QoL fixes. The tracks are for variety.

        TroZ if you can look at the track pack on the server. The tracks SRS and Rock Bottom Race could be good "fun" additions.

          The Rainbow Road one doesn't add much to the game, other than nostalgia.

          It not my server, it's hirez's. He just gave me admin access.
          I do have the server software and can run it locally, but I'm not sure how many clients I can support with my bandwidth. I'd like to try running The Very TrackPack next weekend on my server, if we have enough people interested.
