So we should try to get a car (or cars) ready for each of the 3 PP ranges?

I had to buy a 2nd Samba Bus just to have a car I could get down to 210 LOL

Just a comment.

 

210 is very difficult to reach if you are bringing cars down from a higher PP.  Your only real option is weight as you cannot decrease HP below 50hp using the limiter.  Start with 50 or less and you cannot decrease hp at all...

 

I only have two cars right now at 210pp.  A Citroen 2CV and a VW Swimmwagen.  Too bad we do not have any of the lower-powered Renaults.  I'm pretty sure the LeCar (Renault 5 with US emissions control crippling the engine...) would be in that range.  (I drove one for a decade or so, so this event is right up my alley...)  There are others you can add weight to and reach that PP goal, but most of the cars you mentioned cannot, I believe...

 

For example, a new (0-miles, non-"broken") Honda Life-Step van can only be brought down to 214pp...

 

Might I suggest 220pp?  That gives a lot of cars to choose from but maintains the spirit of the event.

 

As I said, just a comment.  I'll be there tomorrow.

OK, I will look at that PP range, but remember that an odd mix of PP cars should help add to the chaos.

 

Also, there are some eligible vehicles in the on-line garage, if you don't have specific ones in your own collection.

My Swimmwagen already had non-removable parts, so I couldn't get it down to 210.  The price is why I opted for buying a 2nd Samba bus rather than a 2nd Swimmwagen.  :smileywink:

 

Sure, I'm a multi-millionaire in game now... but you never know, I might not be after the next OCD or UCD update!  :smileytongue:

If you have more than one, then add them to your fouvorites list, for easy switches.

 

If you just have slower ones, then you add to the fun. :smileywink:

I adjusted the PP levels for the two weaker groups, to allow a little better selection of cars in each one.
