Some pointers,

Here is my first entry the electric Armadillo

6bgVJ0s.png

Here is the link to all of the times: http://imgur.com/a/qQaIO

Forgot to take the first picture but I assume I started at 0

The buggy is entirely powered by fuel cells 

Total time was: 2:22:48 (not the fastest but I think it is ok)

Rolled over on stage 6 and lost my lights but sustained no other damage surprisingly

Whoops sorry about that, imgur put them in wrong and I tried rearranging them

Probably will redo the rally

@SpannerMonkey(smce) I think 9 and 10 are the same shot at different times and in 7 the flag is targeted I think

Well, this might be interesting for me, I guess I will go full out on tweaking wheels to beat your time :lol:

I don't mind mods or tweaking, this is a driving challenge. &)

Alright, here we go.

The Thingamaflop weighs in at just over ten tonnes, with fifty eight parts. It averages a little over 70m/s during normal operation, but downhills bring it up to as much as 110.

I forgot to switch the velocity indicator to surface. That is 0 m/s surface.

The car flipped, gave me a heart attack, and lost two ladders and a light; but luckily it landed on its tires.

And a monster hill came up on me suddenly. I barely stopped the car in time, 'cause there is no way that my car could survive going off that at 30 m/s

Just in time, too. The sun set behind the mountains a few minutes before I finished.

Really wanted to do this so I threw a vehicle together and I guess it made it to the Stage 2/Finish marker for today. I had to use the winch. :-/ Broke a lot of stuff. And oh, my passenger died. Terrible Stage 1 time but it was fun anyway and wanted to post since I at least completed my goal for the day. :-)

Screenshots weren't well done...you'll have to trust me that the MET is as good as it'll get for a Stage 1 time. Fun challenge!

Stage 1: 55:55

Stage 2: TBD

Stage 3: TBD

Stage 4: TBD

Stage 5: TBD

Stage 6: TBD

Stage 7: TBD

Vehicle: It's a mess of Structural Tubing, Structural Panels, RollKage Kerchelin Jumbos (wanted to do the sport turbos but didn't finish the build), Kerbal Attachment, Jet Engines, Batteries, and some hopefully life saving airbags.

Oh, my worst accident was caused by a seam. Is it likely a mod caused that? Just curious.
