    @Champ9961 Whatever the choice between cars or planes ( only car i built killed a pedestrian...i suck )
    What about a tournament with a last minute random choice between, say, two given courses?
    Is it possible?
    Just a suggestion

    That's the first factor qualification. You won't be able to use the plane if it exceeds dimensions, or has too many parts. Second factor qualification will be the validation check. @SuperRapter458

    it says that the measurements should be 20/20/10 but I see others where their measurements are like 30/30/20. What happens if you go past the measurements to like 40/30/20?

    Now it begins what will the next tournament be. List your ideas above and tell me if I should make a forum for it. So car or plane. Or maybe a new one like a dogfight. Only time will tell

    @Alienbeef0421 what's the point in using structural wings?

    @EarthwormJim Thanks! Okay, the freeze bug is what happens when the first plane to arrive at the final ring has missed one more rings. It hangs there until the other plane either wins, or cannot possibly win. For instance, in this case, the Indi Go 232 hit the final ring at 43 seconds, but missed a ring so it was waiting until 43+15=58 seconds. The Devil 300R crossed the finish line before that, so it won.

    The ACN sparklight crash, the stream may have stuttered, but it's easier to see what happened in the video I just uploaded. It appears the sparklight was just the victim of the AI, and not a lag spike. This also looks to be the case with the Black Mamba. The AI took them both. The AI works in mysterious ways.

    Soo now I can confirm that adjusting max deflection of control surfaces are allowed, along with disabling collisions and structural wings with control surfaces

    @EarthwormJim Thanks for keeping an eye on things today. I wasn't able to watch the stream at all today. If you want, please give me links to any matches where you saw the game or stream glitch and I will investigate this week.
