    I got the idea from Sidewinders "Need for Speed" thread.

    Escape the vehicle chasing you by avoiding his tires and eventually by trapping him.

    So, here are the rules.
    1. Do not mess with any settings outside of the builders box.
    2. Your vehicle must have at least one "Dontinfect" object, able to be easily hit if the chase car touches yours from the back.
    That means the furthest back piece of car, and cannot be blocked, or unable to be hit.
    3. No static objects.
    4. No bombs.
    5. No Pinks.
    6. No infected objects.
    7. Your car must be what solves the level, and it must finish completely inside the "finish" box.
    Or at least with no part of the car not reaching the inside of the "Finish" box.
    "Car" is going to be defined as anything connected to the main frame, or wheels of the car.
    8. No gravity controllers, although i do not see why you would try to use one.
    9. Nothing can be dropped from your vehicle. With an exception of something like you see in cheetah's entry. It cannot stop the chase car, but slow it down. And notice he only did it once, not repeatedly.
    10. No objects build may ever be more than one car length away from the main body of the car.
    11. Break the camera from the front wheel of the car by highlighting (not clicking) the camera hitting break, and then glue the camera to your own vehicle.

    Have fun.



    Id recommend watching the chase car run through the level once to see exactly how things will work.
    Hints
    Check the friction on the set of buildings.
    Remember that the chase vehicle has more ground to build speed before hitting the first obstacle.
    Remember that your car must be heavy enough, or have enough momentum, to trigger the trap or the level will not solve.-----------------

    this didn't finish but would it count if the end worked correctly?


    he could have gotten me!

    Nice!! yes lol that is not a disqualification, its extremely fun to watch!
    It get so close to working too!
    I bet if it didnt fling the chase car like that when you trigger the trap it would even make it though before the chase car fell and infected you wheel.

    Very entertaining!
    Both cars where all over the place!

    Very interesting challenge, indeed. I want to see more entries on this one.
    Cheetah great work. I'm not sure if you broke rule no. 9 but it's still awesome entry, fun to watch.-----------------

    Looks like it has something to do with the new path all those objects put it on, got more speed.
    I guess its aloud but still doesnt solve.
    Could try taking a ball or two out and see what happens then.

    if your talking about the cop car
    they let him get to the top,
    most times he would go to just to fast or slow and would flip and land on his back on the ground or land on the ground and not go in the trap-----------------

    Yes i am sure the chase car gave you a lot of problems, but thats the purpose of the challenge.
    It has to be trapped, and you just pretty much have to get there before it does.
    If that means dropping something to slow it down it still has to make it to the trap, and be trapped : )
    I still love your first entry, i think ive watch it about 5 times now.-----------------

    well ...
    almost. ;(
    i wanted to keep it close ...
    not leave the cops too far behind ...
    so this ended up being a pretty good car chase ...
    but just a little too close at the 'trap'.

    still ...
    i thought he still might infect the yellow bar
    as he tumbled by and i could somehow escape
    having my wheel infected.

    some days you get the bear ...
    some daze the bear gets you.





    whoa!!!
    another close one.
    strange turn of events here ...
    if only me car hadn't touched that bar.

    Hey man thanks for saying you got the idea from me. (Also I've made a level from my need for speed, called Need for speed escape the cops!)-----------------

    FINALLY!!! ...
    got the bridge to spring the cop to the top ...
    but then ...
    just when i thought i was home free ...
    well, you'll see. ;(

    having no control of the springing bridge/trap
    is frustrating ...
    i can adjust my car to get there ok ...
    but slowing the cop by just the right amount
    so he doesn't flip or hit the bridge at EXACTLY
    the right moment is total luck, afaics.

    i did have mucho FUN ...
    trying to fine tweak it. ;)

    love the idea ...
    perhaps the beginning of a new Car Chase
    species of CI.




    ha!

    Nice! It looks like you had a lot of fun in editor with it.

    The one in which the chase car springs the trap on you made me laugh.
    And the last one is so close! it was fun to watch your car fling the infected bar onto the trap like that.

    The trap does seem to bounce a lot, it was hard for me to test thoroughly in the editor, i will see if i can fix it, ill import the fix into your levels, as well, and put the fix in at the top for people to copy too.

    Edit, ahh you added more, getting closer..

    K going to fix quickly.-----------------

    K so here is one of your versions, fixed the springboard on the trap i hope.





    Also edited to top so that other will hopefully not have this problem.
    If your like i can fix your others as well, the cop probably wouldn't bounce out on the second two.

    Here they are.

    ah yes ...
    i imagine many of the versions will
    make it now ...
    as it was the springboard that was
    the touchy part.
    probably any cop car that is now
    delayed enough will make it.

    i guess you could always add another
    element that would disable the bridge
    within a certain time ...
    like a big rock falling down a set time
    after the springboard is triggered ...
    to add back some difficulty.

    anyway ...
    it was fun ...
    even tho i did waste an entire evening
    and day playing with it. ;)
    well ...
    'wasted' probably isn't correct ...
    but then again...
    maybe so.
    who can say? ;)

    thanks for another great level.-----------------

    hmm i feel that same sometimes, i am glad you put so much time into it.
    I will likely make another, i had a lot of fun making it, and watching entries.

    In fact i think these entries have been the most fun to watch so far over perhaps any other car type challenge i have done.

    The fact that you used the same basic car, and then changed settings for the getaway car was really nice too.
    No better way to make an entertaining, even match.-----------------

    yes ...
    it was most fun when i could see both of them on the screen ...
    but never could get the springboard to help me out. ;)
    i'll go back now with the new springboard and see if i
    can find the one where they were only a hair apart at
    2 or 3 places along the course.-----------------
