That's is a very good point actually. Taking this into consideration, I've thought up a new points system which would see the points stretched out amongst all positions (except 20th because nobody deserves a point for finishing in last place! lol). However, it still keeps the margin at the top (just as you said).

1st = 35
2nd = 30
3rd = 26
4th = 23
5th = 20
6th = 18
7th = 16
8th = 14
9th = 12
10th = 10
11th = 9
12th = 8
13th = 7
14th = 6
15th = 5
16th = 4
17th = 3
18th = 2
19th = 1
20th = 0
(Fastest Lap = 1)

Basically, the further up the field you get, the bigger the points difference between positions (5,4,3,3,2,2,2,2,2,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1).

How does this sound?
Do you want to keep value of fastest lap same in this new point system? If points for 1st came from 12 to 35, should fastest lap points be changed from 1 to 3?

No, 1 point for fastest lap is fine I think. Otherwise, people could score more points than a rival who they finished behind, which wouldn't be right.

Just drop point for fastest lap: makes no sense in a racing competition.

Ok, after reading through all of the feedback and ideas, I have decided to abandon the troubled iRSC, in favour of starting a completely new (and hopefully much better) cup sometime in the future. There is an update on the [iR] website which summarises all of the key points from the everybody's feedback.

Thanks to all those who took part in the 'test cup' and left feedback. Invent Racing's debut cup may not have been the best, but it certainly taught me a thing or two. And I can assure you that our next cup, whatever that may be (probably a big X-Bumpz tournament that I have planned), will definitely be much better! :D

In fact, I know you will all love the X-Bumpz tournament :wink:

Blaze, of course, I can't join a server at 5:00 am, :lol: but XBumpz? :(
In New Zealand it just lags so much (ping is 300+ in most cases) that XBumpz just becomes annoying. Though I'm (almost) on my own here.

Were there ever once non-fixed, non-ghost default car cups? If so, then what happened to them? I'm not asking you to make one, I'm just curious.

I haven't really been around long enough to know to be honest. I haven't seen one anyway. Tijny, Mike Nike, dede and any others who have been around for an eternity may be able to answer that one though :)
