I've decided to build the cheapest shitbox and then at the end of the race buy team magna's car for 1k !
In my eyes it’s still a fair rule because the point of the rule remains the same;annnnd that's why I hate that rule.
The point of the rule is to prevent people putting over $1,000 invested in, so the car should only be worth $1,000. If you win and you feel like you are ripped off by someone only giving $1,000 for your vehicle, then you missed the point of the build. If anything it should be that you invest $800 and walk away with $1,000 (plus the losers entry fees)
It doesn’t say you have to trade with the shitty car if you win, it just says you walk away with $1,000. So it’s not like you are investing $3k into a car and if you win you take home a car that’s $250 value.
