Hi there!


I guess almost everybody knows the Random Race system from the GTA 5. It's not so NFS like racing mode, but I think it has the potencial. The players start the race with a random car, and everytime they cross the finish line (In every laps) they get another random car. It could be quite difficult to programming in the nfs:sa, so I tried to create a more viable mode... maybe... 

1. Sign up through the forum
2. 4 (maybe 5) race classes based on the car classes unlock points 0-60k, 60-130k, 130-230k , 230k+ RP (or 230-400k and 400+RP)
Fix for Scaftz: so in the first class cant join anybody, who above 60k rp, and none of the C class cars and above them are available. Although Its possible to let the lower level players to use the higher cars, will be better... after all its just an event.
3. At the start of the event, raffle a random car (from the actual race class unlockable car pool) and a random map. 
Example: 
Class 1 (0-59.999RP) - Hermes - Three City
Class 2 (60k-129.999RP) - Euros - Are We There Yet
Class 3 (130-229.999RP) - Phoenix - LSAP 2
Class 4 (230+) - Patriot - Cable Car

4. Time Attack with stock cars on the track
5. 10 minutes preparation time (setup and dyno)
6. 1,2 or 3 race like a random race or even a tournament.

It could be more complex, like more cars, not only one, more tracks and more races etc.

The point, that players compete against players with similar experience, with a car they never drove, with a tuning, what they just figured out in 10 minutes after a short test run. 

The problem is the RP levels of the tuning system, and the money. 
So my questions:

a. Guys, what do you think, does we need a racing mode like this (or just a single event) at the server? 

b. How is it possible to create? 
Add a free slot to the participants with a car on lvl9 and money to buy the setups, then take back after the event? Maybe let the winners to keep them? Or place it in a bigger holiday, like server anniversary, and the stuff make a  brand new car to the server?

NTS race-like is very unlikely for NFSSA, loading modded cars mid-race will cause people with lower PC specs to stutter.

As for your alternative idea,
a. Not needed. Majority of players who have played for a while have experienced most of the cars in game. The mode doesn't seem like offering any other unusual fun.
b. Probably.

Yes, it would make more sense with more cars (much more), but perfect setup/DYNO pretty rare, especially if you want to drive an unpopular car, so there would be one more reason to spend time with those cars too, not only with the meta's. The other reason I found it a good idea, the newer players status. Start on the server, farm until 60k/130k/230k, buy the first car what on the chat tell you somebody and thats all. Just a little chance to test unknown cars, and maybe you wont start your carreer jumping from the first "best car" to the next, whitout discover any others.  Pretty weak reason, but this is my opinion. Primarily its not for the veterans, because after 350-400kRP the most people knows quite well the cars and the setups/dynos to make a decent tuning anytime after one race. But I would be curious, what if the best players on the server just got a new car, and they have to setup it after one test race in 10 minutes, to make an URL- level tournament on the streets...

If the main goal is so newbies can try out cars they haven't drove yet, this has gone far from the target audience. This sort of event will benefit veterans more instead. Veterans mastered most of the cars they would get and destroy those who drove them in their first time. After a while it's guaranteed no newbies will ever want to attend the event anymore.

Better approach to help newbies with choosing their or trying new cars is to give them ability to test drive the car on it's maxed performance in a decent dyno setup, but that would be too much to be offered. Although giving them stock car to test drive won't do anything good neither so i am quite skeptical about it.

Yes, there is a lot of other solution for the newbies problem, wich way better than this. Its just an event for fun. 

I will fix it, if I was not clear. Theres is the classes FOR the players too. I mean a player above 130k RP can't race against players whose under 130k.  So the veteran vs newbie line-up wont happen.

Yes, I should fix it.

Now that would be more reasonable, with higher playerbase that is.
