I'm sur atheistw will do better but this track is quite similar to his project Motorstorm like
In this track,you can drive different custom kart based on the 80's TV show: K2000, the jeep of Mc Gyver, the van of the A-team, the car of starsky and Hutch,...with insane details
Further more, there is many way to finish the track, shortcut, breadcrumps, a lot of gifts and other surprises .
Enjoy

Thank you for sharing this one! The vehicles are indeed highly detailed and look fantastic as do the prefab buildings! Unfortunately the track layout is not the best and those whirling razor blade traps were really out of place. Also the karts suffer the same hitbox issues as most custom kart outings (thanks for explaining all about that in the tutorials UFG... not!) and the handling felt a little bit stiff. Still, I made a point to get all the prize bubbles so I could have a look at the vehicles in the editor in more detail. :D

They are very well made but they are too complex for LBPK's meagre budget, lots of small shapes and tiny details that while looking impressive only serve to balloon the budget. He's made a lot of the vehicle bodies out of several different pieces which isn't budget friendly and the wheel trims with all their small shapes only further contribute to the thermometers imminent explosion. I can imagine that with just the 6 custom karts down, plus the vehicle models and building prefabs he had scattered around the level and the laid down track the thermo would have been touching the 75% mark and that's without ANY other detail placed around the level! Hence while the vehicles looked great the rest of the track was pretty meh IMHO.

Still, thanks for highlighting it, was worth playing just for those vehicles! :)
