    shooting straight through the pack like a bullet!

    Shootout Scrambler is an aerodynamic buggy, made for RVW Summer Contest 2021.
    its visuals are inspired by RC Bandit and Pole Poz, along with "Vulture" of Hot Wheels Highway 35.
    featuring a unique low-slung design with intricately composed lines, to create a look befitting of a speeding bullet.

    ———

    as the name shows, the car accelerates like a speeding bullet being shot.
    Shootout Scrambler has a rapid acceleration to swiftly reach its top speed of 60 kph.
    this speed does not go to waste at corners, as it is capable of speeding through turns.
    the car can glide along corners at high speeds while keeping its momentum.
    if the situation demands it, the car can smoothly slide along tight hairpins.

    while its pure performance is undeniable, it comes at a major flaw.
    despite having good cornering capability, its response time is sluggish.
    it takes moments for the steering to reach its full cornering potential.
    this delay in steering means the car is not suited for reactive confrontation.
    the corner gliding also results in the car's pace being inconsistent.
    moreover, its flat low-slung body means it can end flipped around more than expected.

    ———
    the soul of a speeding bullet graces Shootout Scrambler to shoot away from competitors.
    unsuited for direct confrontation, like a bullet shot that cant change its course.
    the key to this car is to plan ahead your line and maximize its performance output.

  1. A challenging Semi-Pro that can be mastered with enough training, now we are talking. The speed is sorta reminding of levels of Pest Control, probably less, but still much more maneuverable than that car. If you can over over with the handling of the car and it’s speed, you will be unstoppable. But sheer hubris will be your downfall.

    Getting cocky with it and abusing with it won’t get you nowhere, letting go of your throttle in some turns will make you do extra tight hairpins, even normal throttle can achieve this, if you turn for too long. I recommend tapping the steering with this one, it was a mild syndrome of Humma handling, but not too much as it can corner surprisingly well.

    I normally perfer easy to handle cars for casual fun, but this is one example that if you put your mind into it and focus with the car, you will prevail. An underrated gem.
