The “Moddys” Celebrate The ModNation Racing Community
This week we kick-off our MNR One Year Anniversary Celebration with the MNR Racers. These players have wickedly insane kart racing skills (though we are not too sure how that transfers over to our actual highways and bi-ways…lol). The rest of us “regular Joes” could learn a lot from them if it wasn’t for the fact that we are usually clouded in their dust - but hey, for the first couple of turns you’ll have a shot at a win! These guys and gals are good… no, GREAT! Congratulations racers!
Next week we will roll out the “Moddys” for the Kart creators. We had a little extra time on our hands lately so we searched for some cool Karts until our eyes became so red and dry they turned to dust and fell out of our heads.
Double XP Week
shhhhhh… I did it! I found the big red button to start the Double XP week! I set the timer for June 6th – June 13th. Next time they’ll think twice about leaving me to go to E3! -insert bitter evil laugh here-
Track of the Week: ARENA OF THE SURREAL by RADBOYROB
File Under: “We don’t know what just happened, but we liked it!”
If you were alive in the 60’s or you are a rubberneck driver then you’ll love this course, lots of fun and “trippy” items to look at, both in wonder AND confusion (i.e. a firework explosion exiting a bull’s hind end!). Don’t expect to win many races on this course if you are trying to catch a glimpse at the floating “who-knows-what” or avoiding the “what-the-heck-was-that” thingy (note – we are 64% sure that’s what those things are called).
RADBOYROB didn’t forget to throw in a good race; in fact it’s one of the better races of the week! If you want to “experience” some great course we highly recommend RADBOYROB’s tracks. Give ‘em a shot (and a huge dose of XP to boot!). Track summary… “Stay in school, don’t do drugs!

It's good to see JP38 get some recognition for his longevity. He's a blast to race with; really laid back.
Also, this is an explosion of new parts! I haven't been this excited about the game in a long time.

Thanks for the weekly Update Mark!
Guess I will be obsessively checking the Store constantly this week until that Arctic Tour appears. (Thanks to moriarty1975 for the sneek peek )
(I know a more aggressive Store update schedule has been promised due to E3 and Welcome Back stuff)
I'd love to see it there TONIGHT!
I know we've been loaded up on new creation DLC this past week, BUT:
Any chance we might see a new Coming Soon Video (like has been done in the past) that gives us a peek at that BIG CITY Tour pack... please, please, please.
Those track names have my imagination sparked with potential new prop and creation pieces that pack might bring!!!
Bring on the DLC!!!!

nice to see my buddy RadboyRob getting some cred! Cool guy, for an Aussie. He also makes me feel not so old on the game (I'm 34, he's 45!). Hamster I'm sure I will see you on this week, these new packs will get me playing more again ...
