    Go ahead and take me off the list. I'm not sure I'll be racing anymore.

    I saw Motionless in White one time. I crowd surfed onto the stage, then proceeded to dance Gangnam Style until the security forcibly threw me off the stage.

    Oh lord, I should not have found this thread. This sent me on a massive nostalgia trip... Well, I had a few truck series (I wanna say Mystic ran for 13 or 14 trucks), but the one that actually matters when I got better at the game and started doing reasonably well was Vengeance. It's the truck where I won my only major championship and (even though I find this hard to believe looking back) actually ran for more than 2 years. Before I post these, please know that I know how god awful the paint jobs were. I've never been good at painting trucks. Hell, go look at some of the stuff I did when I first moved over to RoR. It's terrible. But I did make something, and I loved the trucks either way. The biggest thing about the Vengeance series is they were all based off the same custom-built frame that was a mix between a Patrick and racesource. Vengeance 1: This was the beginning. It started around the time I tried to do SRDS and really was all about how terrible my reputation had become and how I wanted to lift it out of the crapper. It seemed smart in my 13 year old mind, but that's beside the point. Vengeance 2: A bit better, and this is where "Vengeance Man" started (the guy with the purple sword) Vengeance 3: This was an interesting one. I tried to pull off chrome flames, and it actually turned out to not be too terrible. A bit more blending and it could've been much better Vengeance 4: Vengeance 4, while being one of the better looking ones, didn't last very long. I didn't much care for the way it looked, even though looking back on it I find it to be one of the better looking Vengeance trucks. Vengeance 5: PPRL World Finals 3 Racing Champion Vengeance 5. Far and away my proudest moment in the game. IIRC this was a 24 truck field, and this was arguably the peak of competition in MTM2. The drivers were incredibly quick and consistent, from Collard to Payne to Robson and so on. It made me quite happy to take the win, and the fact I did it in the Vengeance line made it that much more meaningful to me. This was far and away the longest lasting of the Vengeance line, as it was built only 10 months after Vengeance 1, but it was over a year between this truck and Vengeance 6. Granted, there were a lot of other side projects between the two, such as Biohazard, but still. Vengeance 5 carried my one and only major title flag in MTM2 Vengeance 6: This was probably one of my most iconic trucks in MTM2. Even though it's the newest, it has more downloads on mtm2.com than the rest of the series. This truck, although it never won a championship, took me to numerous racing event wins throughout the many leagues running at the time. This was the first time since Super 7 (heh, anyone remember that crap?) that I was accused of having a cheat truck. I spent literally days fine tuning the handling on this truck, running numerous passes around different styles of tracks, in order to get it to fit like a glove. I knew my racing style, and I wanted something that fit it. It was a solid freestyler, but that's not what it was about. Vengeance 6 was all about winning in racing, and it did that well. It was damn near unbeatable, but it never won a title like Vengeance 5 did. And of course Vengeance 7 was built when I came to RoR.

    Of course, if you mix in the coils with some nitrogen shocks, you get a lot more out of them, because you've got the stiffness of the coils to keep body roll down, and the nitro to help cushion the blow a lot more so that the coils take less abuse. A pure coil setup just wouldn't work in modern freestyle, though, unfortunately, no matter how cool they look. Either way, I drive like Jim Jack, so it's not like the truck would really take that much abuse. It's generally two small hits and a roll, lol.

    ^^That. I realize that coils in todays world would be absolutely useless for modern freestyle. However, I absolutely love the look of coils, and I was going for aesthetics here. It's a video game and I can do it, therefore I will.

    She's almost done. Just gotta play with the tires and rims a bit and touch up a few more details and I'll have it done:

    Let's see if I remember how to do this.
