DEMO DERBYgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
I KNOW THIS HAS BEEN SUGGESTED BEFORE BUT I WANTED TO SAY HOW IT COULD BE DONE TO MAKE IT MORE ENTERTAINING AND MORE CHALLENGING. AS YOU CAN GUESS, JUNKYARDS USUALLY HAVE A LOT OF CARS IN THEM, SO I SAY WHY NOT HAVE EACH TEAM BUILD 4 DEMO CARS, ONE FOR EACH TEAM MEMBER. THEN YOU CAN HAVE A PRETTY GOOD SIZED DEMO DERBY FOR THE CHALLENGE. THE WINNER WOULD BE THE LAST TEAM LEFT RUNNING. YOU CAN SET LIMITS ON THE CARS THEY CAN USE, LIKE HAVING TO USE LITTLE CARS, OR ONLY V6 OR LESS ENGINE ETC. ANOTHER INTERESTING THING TO DO WOULD BE TO HAVE A ROYAL RUMBLE TYPE EVENT WITH MANY DIFFERENT TEAMS PARTICIPATING, IT WOULD BE A COOL WAY TO END EACH SEASON, HAVE ALL THE TEAMS COME BACK AND EACH ONE CAN BUILD A DEMO CAR. IT WOULD BE FUN FOR EVERYONE TO SEE THERE FAVORITE TEAMS ONE MORE TIME. SORRY FOR SUCH A LONG POST, BUT I HOPE YOU LIKE MY IDEAS.

The caps lock key is on the left of the keyboard, the third from the bottom.

That was a great answer.
Nick Evans, I got half way through your message, idea or whatever and had to quit. Whatshername wife number one was a professional editor, she once told me what a pain in the backside all caps were, and why is it a pain? It is very very hard to read. You'd be better off typing your messages or ideas in all lower case, a lot more people will take the time to read it.

MY EYES HURT!!!!!! oh..sorry..did I type that in caps? >=) Seriously though.......This would be to dangerous for the teams. Don't get me wrong..I love demolition derby's as much as the next one....but experianced people are behind the wheels....JYwars may be cancelled if one of the players got seriously hurt
