RTI is a measurement of how capable the vehicle is. The idea is something like a CC01 will have a low RTI so get a little bonus.
We still need to work out a decent RTI figure for this though

Edit, it was to replace the bonus you used to get for using leaf springs, as you can tweak the arse out of a leaf spring setup like we did with jays.

Bumpers and sliders should score points whether they are fabbed or bought.

But......, -4 per bumper & sliders seems like a lot considering the weight isn't especially high up like an interior or spare wheel.
So just having bumpers and sliders (-12) is worth more points than a hard body (-10) ??? Can't be right!!

Ooooh and I found another



Grrrr it doesn't link.

L350

Nothing to do with weight, all to do with getting in the way. Bumpers can restrict approach/departure angles.
And yes both fab'd and bought get the points

I think all hand made metal bumpers and slidders should get points not plastic
