It's gotta be ground based, but I left it vague. If you think you can smash a full on rocket car through this track, I may just allow that :D

I did it in 2:45 but had some chokes in there. I will try to get better results!

Nice car! I almost had you until your boosters kicked in on that final stretch! In hindsight, I should've saved my boosters for the end as well!

That looks like fun!

I'd LOVE to see you take a whack at this course. I'd imagine you're hardest decision, Azimech, would be deciding just which of your cars to use on this track! :P

If you don't mind, I'd rather go around the launchpad scenery instead of crashing in to them and hoping for the best.

So someone told me about this challenge on KerbalX. But instead of using the car of mine he recommended i decided to built one extra for this race. 

And if the 2:45 is still the latest record, then i can proudly announced, i beat it by 15  seconds :D

My 2:30 time startet counting when the kerbal sat down on the seat. The car is rocket powered, but since the rules didn't forbid it i felt free to use rockets.

I think a time under 2:00 would be possible in this Challenge. My car broke out twice on the last sprint to the Squad Monolith, so i guess it could be 15 or 20 seconds faster

Here's my Video

 

 

Some Stats:

-   Powered by a total of 8 Rocket Engines (4 to acc. 4 to break)

-   2 Jetengines to keep the car glued to the ground and stable through corners

  14 wheels (6 front, 8 rear)

-   Up to 3G acc. forces in T1

-   0-100km/h (27,77 m/s) in 4 seconds

-   0-328km/h (91,2m/s Topspeed before T1) in 15 seconds

-   Up to 3G acc. forces in T1

Jesus Christ 1:47!?! That is just an insane racepace :D

The car went about a meter or two past the monolith with 655 km/h :D That Kerbal is living on the edge xD

Wow!! Smashed the high score! You've taken the lead! Very nice car!

 

I'm going to add one more stipulation however. From this point forward, only your first submitted run will count for the leader board (please submit as many as you like however!) This way you are pressured to do better your first time, and to promote some healthy competition! I'll allow your second shot though N_F_X, ex post facto or something like that. :sticktongue:

Dude nice! I love all the fuel piping on your car, gives it some nice curb appeal. Not to mention the engine xD

So you have understeer... and I have oversteer

I tried to drift through the corners controlled, since you can't completly stop untersteer if you wanna run a competitive time. But in the end i spun twice destroying my time. Thats why i only ran a 2:30. So try to drift through corners and point your car on target before acc. on that last straight to the Monolith, because slight turns at high speed end in spins or way worse disasters

Do I have to use wheels?

It's a rally, so I would assume so... but it doesn't say you have to.......
