As you may have heard already, there will be a contest starting very soon. So I want to hear what you guys would like to see the theme be for it! I've got a few ideas but I want to see what everyone else would like to do first.

The contest will hopefully be up and running by the end of this week and I don't know all the dates, rules etc. just yet, but that will be all figured out by then.

So, lets hear your ideas...

As stupid as it sounds, I think contests should focus on single tuning points - for example, one contest should be cambered cars, another for body kits etc... :)

I tend to agree - if it's just 'tuned cars' it's the same as every other contest on MOCpages, which is why so many don't really work. H.G's suggestion of picking a theme could be good - like low-riders, air-cooled, 1/4 milers etc.

or even country themes too - most countries have different styles of tuning, like American muscle cars, Japanese tuners, French and british hot hatches etc :)

Great idea from Harry there! Unfortunately I don't think I will be able to enter any contest at the moment, I have a bit of a problem in the areas of parts and money available...

I'm liking what you guys are talking about! Maybe a 'forced induction only' contest, that would leave a lot of room for many different types of cars, you know, you could have all kinds of different countries, different sizes(coupe, sedan, hatchback, SUV's etc), and you could even build a car that comes standardly N/A, but then add a turbocharger or supercharger. What do you guys think?

No problems mate! I'm not going to enter either, because I will be a judge and I think Ape Fight would like to judge too. I'm thinking that the contest won't end until around the 1st of January, because I'm going away and won't be active for some time, plus I want to give everybody plenty of time to build the best entry they possibly can.

Yeah, that's a good idea. I can judge if you want me to?

Sounds great! That will be you, Ape and myself as the judges! Anyone else have some ideas for what the theme should be?

Hi all! At first thanks for the invite! ; )
Secondly: the "theme" is a always "match to the point" in contest! ; ) So: why not?! We can start by a year, or a precise tuning style (as Hot Rods, Low-rider, German style, Japanese, ect! ; ) ) whatever you want!!! Just one "thing": Don't obliged us to build new entries for time to time! ; ) The Contest might be open to any creation (however size, new MOC or old one, and stuff like that...) as long it fi the chosen theme! ; )

_PS: Only my opinion, you can forget it or just pick up some ideas from this comment, or whatever you want!

I like your ideas Hot Rod and San the First. We'll have it so that you can enter an old or new MOC, that will let everybody that doesn't have the time or pieces at the moment, to still enter. What we should do is have a group poll, to see what everyone wants to do, I'll start it on another topic.

All right! After Starscream Soundwave, Ape Fight and myself agreed upon the theme of the upcoming contest, we can now start the contest! It's theme? That was determined by cutting up eight pieces of paper, numbering them 1-8, shuffling them around and then picking one random piece of paper out. It ended up being the number 4. Countries Customs, so after speaking to SS and Ape, we now have contest to start! Everybody that is already a member of CCC will be invited to the contest!

Thanks for everyone's contributions and patience. All rules, due dates etc. will be on the contest group's homepage.
