This is a desert rally done in baja 500/1000 style where for the most part you have plenty of room to carve your favorite line for the best lap times, it also caters to multiple racers for some online fun. Good lap times are in the 3:30.00 range, great lap times are 3:20 and under.

teh-ka-tee

cheers race fans

Now this is one great rally Mal! This one is great to play in very large group and offer plenty of room to manuver. The banked curves allow to drive at hi speed and it flows great once you figured how to take the various curves and jumps. Even if the track is very wide in some areas, Mal did a great job with the scenery so that thrilling sence of speeding remain from the start line to the finish.

Since there is no huge long jumps and deep traps, it's racable by drivers from all levels. However, you'll soon find out that the faster you drive the smoother your line will need to be and the more you'll have to control your speed. Overall, this one is one heck of a cool rally track.

Thx a bunch Mal. I could'nt find anything negative to say about it.
Scores and replay is available on team SLO's HOF

Have fun!!

Huh! Perhaps you should change that statement for 3:20 buddy! LoL, my guess is with some serious practice we'll even take it down a few more seconds

this is a fun track to race and reminds me of evo2 baja, but with some great twists. looks like you used TRI Baja 350 textures, with a few added ones (although those textures also come with a few other evo2 tracks... you converted 2 of them).

only small suggestion would be to give your textures "edges". not sure if you know what i mean.

[tu] [tu] Yeah
This one is great.

Undoubtly a pro-racers' track. It is not only technically challenging with blind jumps, jumps and landings on skewed areas, curves with extreme banking and harmless looking bumps that will U-turn you before you know what's happening, plus other goodies.

It will also give you food for thought because the fastest line is not straightforward to find. The bumps and bankings combined with MTM2's lunar physics makes you struggle hard for traction and wonder about the best way to preserve as much speed to the curves' exit .

Regarding the technical execution of the track, it is simply Malesque

Extract from Phin's unabridged MTM2 thesaurus:
One entry found for Malesque.
Main Entry: Malesque
Etymology: Malibu350, mtm2 hero and fighter of the evil ground boxes
Pronunciation: 'ma-lesk'
Function: adjective
1 : expressing technical perfection and precision
2 a : inspiring awe <a malesque track>
b : TERRIFIC 2, 3; especially : EXTRAORDINARY
- malesque·ly adverb

Great track Mal. I drive with a steering wheel and this track really puts it to the test. The constant jumps, turns and terrain changes are great. A true rally track.

Btw, I found the easter egg in the track shot. 8)

Thank you all for the kind comments :)

It's icing on the cake when someone else other than myself finds the track enjoyable... very cool indeed.

When I first saw the picture for it, I was thinking it was another "Gultch" type track... I was wrong.

You gotta EARN a win on this one! Wow, kinda tough. Not what I was expecting at all. As usual, you can do no wrong man, excellent.

Smooth in some areas, but most of it really beats your truck, I love it. It takes skill to be fast, Cope may have a problem, but the rest of us, it's just for fun. I think it'll be hard to make the lap times consistent, unless you follow the exact same line each lap, but I found that that is impossible. This is just one of those "hammer down" tracks, and where you land, is where you land kind of tracks.

I love it, makes me wish I had more sand around here in Nebraska, so I could run something like this for real in my truck, but it's just dirt here, and nothing this cool here, unless you like stuff that's flat. Another keeper Mal, keep it up man.

Yes.

Either that, or you have something else mounted that contains a file named MALSAND1.RAW - and guess who it would be that caused that conflict [;)]

PS. For real fun, switch the two around and you can get funky pics of the other track too :P

That's a feature, not a bug. Depending on which track you have above T350 you'll get a different look, who knows the cow may just turn into budah.


:P
