Date: 6/09/2016

Rules:
You have a budget of $15,000 to purchase a vehicle and modify it for the challenges.
Any performance modifications you do the vehicle have to still come in under the $15,000 total budget.

The following upgrades are deemed as performance, and must be factored into your budget.

Armor
Engine
Brakes
Turbo
Suspension
Transmission
Rear Spoliers
Bodykits
Wheel accessories (bulletproof tires)

All other upgrades are not included in your budget. so go wild _b


Vehicles:
Vehicles can be purchased from Southern San Andreas Super Autos

Only the Voodoo can be purchased at Benny's Original Motor Works and will carry a base cost of $3,000

There are a few vehicles not available for purchase that can be found while roaming around
in GTAOnline that can be used if you want to find one.

Albany Empourer $5,000 Base Cost (Rusty or clean version)
http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Emperor_(car)
Albany Manana $5,000 Base Cost
http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Manana
Declasse Voodoo $3,000 Base Cost (Rusty version found at Sandy Shores) - Can be purchased at Bennys
http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Voodoo
Declasse Tornado $5,000 Base Cost (Rusty or clean versions incl soft tops)
http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Tornado

The FREE vehicles like the Elegy, Declasse Burger Shot, Pisswasswer Dominator
and Redwood Gauntlet can not be used either.


No motorbikes.

Damage:
Unless there is absolutely no other option, you are not to repair, or re spawn your vehicle.
So be smart, and look after your vehicle because you'll be stuck with whatever damage you have.

Points:
Challenge Winner gets 10 points, and then the points drop by 2 as we go back down the list.
This is assuming we have 10 or less people, any more and we'll up the points.
At the end of the night points will be awarded to the person with the cheapest vehicle.
Re spawning, or fixing your vehicle will result in a 4 point deduction.


We'll put your vehicles through a series of challenges to see what car,and driver are the best.


At 8:00pm I'll have an Invite Only session running.
Add me on the Rockstar Social club (Riftcreator) and let me know so I can invite you to the session. Or have someone you're friends with flick you an invite to the session.

You have to be on the KSR Discord chat server too for this night please. Details here

Looking at a 8:30ish start for the first challenge.


Once in, we'll all meet up at the Devin Western hanger at Los Santos Airport with our vehicles
for a look at what we've all chosen, then we'll start the first challenge.


Challenge 1: Drag Races
For the start of the night we'll have a couple of drag races on the runway at LOS Airport to find the fastest cheap car.
The first race will be a normal standing start drag race, but the second one, we'll do that in reverse!

Once that is done it's time to head over to the Sandy Shores Airfield for the next challenge.

Challenge 2: Hot Lap Challenge.
This will be a standing start one lap dash up the runway, turn left at the top and a dash to the finish line.
Fastest time wins. We'll race one at a time.

Once that's done, we'll take a drive over to the below bridge at the Alamo Sea for the offroad/rally challenge.


Challenge 3: Offroad/Rally Challenge.
We're going to take the left road just before the bridge and do a 1 lap race.
Winner gets to determine the order for the next challenge.


From there we'll head over to the Stunt Jump in Paleto Bay.


Challenge 4: Long Jump
For this challenge we'll start from a point and do the stunt jump. Once in the air you HAVE TO RELEASE the throttle and let the car land and coast. (You can control the vehicle while in the air)
The vehicle that rolls the longest distance wins. Once you've done the jump and rolled to a halt, hop out and leave your car where it finished. Makes winning the Rally challenge important eh ;p

For the last challenge of the night, we're going to head over to Beekers garage.


Challenge 5: Race to the sky - A race to the top of mount Chiliad.
Starting in the carpark at Beekers garage, we'll race to the look out point at the top of Mt Chiliad.
Fist person the stand on the observation point wins.


There are many ways to the top, some not so easy, but faster with some skilled driving, and the right vehicle. So pick you route wisely.


Obviously there is no way to police the budget, but we would expect everyone to be honest.

Why can't we use the Karin Sultan (not the RS version obviously) ? Only 12k at Benny's, basically just a base level Subaru

Also the Sabre and the Primo are both under 15k as well (Although the Primo is also available at San Andreas Motors)

They're far to dominate. Primo is ok, price is the same on both sites _b

And by the way, if a vehicle costs $10,000 to buy, but you find one whiile roaming around in GTA Online, that doesn't mean you have $15,000 to spend on upgrades.

It just means you've saved spendning the money to purcahse the vehicle, Growler ;p
Each vehicle has a base cost.
