    @mathuaerknedam [2461123] and I were talking about having a tournament where racers use the same car through the entire competition.  With WAC, JAART, URT, WKT, and TARS, I have had plenty of races to look forward to, but I looked at the list of upcoming races and it's looking a little scarce for March.  (BTW, big thank you to the race organizers)

    So if we wanted to do a tournament where each racer uses the same car for several tracks (maybe all), then how would we know the person used the same car? I don't have very many upgraded cars, but I still have 3 Honda NSXs, so I don't think anyone would have a good way of knowing if I switched out my tarmac for my dirt for example. So as tournament organizers, would there be any way to make sure people actually used the same car through the entire tournament?

    The only thing that came to mind was to use stock cars so it wouldn't matter if they use a different car because they should be the exact same as long as it is a particular model of car, but I was hoping there was a way that we could use upgraded cars. Thoughts or suggestions?

    Madbranch recently ran a week of Ferrari races

    Triguem ran the Night Racers NSX Showdown almost a year ago

    Since no one has a Ferrari set up dirt (wait I do lol) Madbranch just ran tarmac tracks. He also ran a stock Ferrari tournament in parralel to the fully upgraded races, as its hot or miss for most racers to upgrade a car that's not the best on any track.

    Triguem ran 10 tracks, skipping obvious ones like Speedway and Withdrawal you don't normally see NSXs used on.

    So there are tourneys like this, but there's no good way to keep racers with a boatload of unused racing points from either setting up a second car or switching their car for each race unless you go stock... and a lot of racers will skip a stock tourney.

    only with stock you can know it like Rogue already mentioned.

    You won't see a difference in the type's of nsx's people have. I can use a dirt LR/T3 a sr/T2 and a sr/T3 dirt nsx and you won't know i switched.

    You can see the difference between dirt and tarmac in the obvious difference... time. A dirt nsx will perform alot less on a tarmac track and a tarmac nsx will perform alot less on a dirt track. If someone in a honda nsx car gets a good time on dirt he won't get a good time on a tarmac track unless he switches car.

    Okay.  So we won't be able to do a literal single car, but we can do like the ferrari race and force people to choose a model and stick with it the entire way.  Cool.  Thanks, yall.

    @lugburz confirmed that the unique car ID is NOT available to the script, so there isn't any way that even an updated script can verify a single car is used through the entire race (at this time).  So we'll have to look at only allowing a particular car model.

    Thanks to everyone that is helping with this.

    Perhaps you could make a request in the suggestions forum to make the car IDs available to script writers. The Ferrari would probably shine in this scenario.
