Demolition Derby GT Style

22 replies 48 views Edited Sep 5, 2010

A thought just crossed my mine with damage now in play.  I remember in GTA IV, a group of people held a Demolition Derby which turned out rather well.  I'm wondering if some people here have even thought about it or already plan on doing it.  I can see it now in the grass of the tri-oval of Daytona..   I don't see myself doing it often but the thought of it sounds fun.

Absolutely.

One of the other online races released, ToCA 3, had a very good damage system and people had demolition derbies, cops and robbers, and my favorite, team no-rules races.

Demo derbies are easy enough to figure out, just hit anyone and everyone.
Cops and robbers is about someone being in a slightly faster and lighter car, running away from the rest of the room trying to destroy your car. (Not easy when they can turn around and go backwards, or simply form a roadblock.)

Team no-rules racing usually ends up with 1 person per team running laps, and everyone else trying to protect that person, or bash the other team. That was insane fun and I might try to do it again in GT.

Well we don't know that either.  Just a thought.

Guess it could be a timed event type thing the more i ponder it.The one with the fewest body parts missing wins in a set amout of time.

I'll spend most of my time racing seriously, but that won't stop me from messing around every now and then, if others are willing to. Racing with no rules sounds like it would be good for a laugh every now and then, kind of like how Rick and FLF race.

Once again, the beauty of private rooms. I hope all demo derby enthusiasts keep it in private rooms, instead of messing up the races like drifters often do now. Not all, but most in my experience.

Since the Top Gear track is a figure-of-8 track which allows more than single-car time trials, it won't take long to experience such a race.

Usually the winner is the person who had the most fun. Demo derbies are rarely taken seriously online. They are more of a release.
