Thanks for starting up this thread! We really need new contest ideas. I chose the last one, so if you guys could help me choose this one, that'd be great!

Tuned 2010 Mustang?

Too specific.

I'd like it to be more of a class, like our previous three contest (i.e. wagon, exotic, beater). How about this one:

DRIFT CARS

Anyone for that?

Hey i have an idea since MC and WCT are sister groups why not make an all star contest for this contest or the next one.

Yeah, it looks like a tuner. I think they have to drift a figure-eight.

Hey Juan! Sorry it's been so long, but I was actually thinking about this over the days. I finally decided that I like the idea a lot: an epic contest between two group... I like it :) So now we just need to think of an idea (if you're okay with the whole contest). Drift cars might be good, but I was thinking, since the contest would be so huge, maybe the topic should be super-broad, like just... tuner. Anyways, I'm really liking this idea of a huge contest: I think we should discuss it a little more here.

-Dax

P.S. - Which of your MOCs is your favorite?

No, it wouldn't be one group versus another, it was going to be a huge contest open to all members of WCT and MC.

Awesome! How about we do your favorite car and tune it! And for next time i was wondering maybe we can get all the WCT and MC winners and make an all star contest. Also since it's a really big contest we should have a really big prize.

P.S My Fav moc is my Ford GT (from me) and my Fav of all is Firas's Ford GT and Audi R8

Well, the problem with "tune your favorite car" is that not everyone's favorite car is, well, tunable. Like, it may be an Ford F-250 or something like that. Plus,I think that topic would be too hard to grade...

Speaking of grading, I think we should decide on three judges that aren't in either group. Maybe it could go like this:

Topic A: /5
Topic B: /5
Topic C: /5
Topic D: /5
Topic E: /5

Total: /25

Then, since there are three judges, each grades your creation like that. Then the scores are added. So, the highest you could get is a 75/75, meaning you got a 25/25 from each judge. Or, maybe you got a 17/25, from one judge, 23/25 from another, and a 20/25 from the other. Then the total score would be a 60/75.

Sorry that may have been very confusing: I just think that the grades should be very diverse, with three different judges.

If you have another idea, please share it! I just don't think that we should do the judging, nor should it be left up to one person.

And about the prize... I still have to think about that :D

Hello again :) Yep, it looks like that's just about what we need. Here are my most recent thoughts on the subject:

Theme - Stock to tuner?

Judges - 3 car enthusiasts who probably wouldn't compete, like Firas, and unlike AJ Pride ;) [he builds for every contest]

Scoring - Perhaps what I said before?

Prize - ???

How about this: You select three judges and ask them, and I'll think of a prize.

Once this is all sorted out, I could get to work on a group.

ok awesome but about the theme yes stock to tuner but, like what type of i think Fav car, as i said before i think, is a good idea because it's really general not that much restrictions since this is a big contest.

Yeah, maybe that would be cool. Though most people would build their favorite car if given the chance anyways :) But what if your favorite car isn't a tune-able car? Like, i don't know, a classic car?

That's the awesome thing with legos you can do anything. For example the first MC contest Darnell t's entrie was a Shelby Cobra Concept in real life it isn't tunable but still in legos you can see that the cool thing with tuner lego cars. Also i choose that theme, like as you said, i would love to make my favorite car in lego.

Good point there. Okay, so now it's just the question: do they have to build their favorite car, stock, and then tune it? Or should we simplify it to just build a tuned version from scratch...

Also, I've been thinking about a good prize since I want to leave mailing something out of this, but I still want the reward to be exceptional. If you wouldn't mind, both of our groups could add a "Hall of Fame" sort of thing to our homepage. We could put past winners AND the winner of this contest on there, either with a link or a picture. I could also make a badge or something to put on the main picture of the winning entry via photoshop.

Now if you could find some judges, that would be great. Tell me what you think.

Yes stock to tuner would be awesome. it would make it more fun. Also the Hall of Fame thing is a good prize as well. And i didn't want any shipping in this either.

Okay then. So now we have the theme, scoring, and prize prize down, and I heard you began asking in MC about judges. That's good. Perhaps we should also ask in BoW, for fast results, if you know what I mean :)

1 The prize: The winning MOC would end up in both of our groups "hall of fame" (which I'm working on right now). I could also add a badge/award-type thing on to the main picture of the winning entry through photoshop

2 "Fast Results" was just because I suggested that you look for judges in BRICKSonWHEELS as well as MC. You know there's a lot of talkative folks over in BoW ;) I'm sure you'd find judges fairly quick there.

hey Dax I have another theme idea (Although it might be to late) Tune your favorite supercharged car. Like the Ford Shelby is the supercharged version of the Ford mustang. The 2010 Chevy Camaro RS is the supercharged version of the 2010 Chevy Camaro.The Murcielago LP640 is the supercharged version of the Murcielago. There are alot more cars and it's still a general idea!
