The shurkin challenge.
 
I think most of know that crappy lux garage from VG1 with the light ship and std chassis.
Since its been dead in here and some just posted a bike build.

You run a garage and have been offered a job, someone came in with a car and they want it nodded, the only thing is you get free rain and lots of money to play with. It's part is build off with groups and biz in the area to promote a movie or something. Does not matter, your job it to build something cool with this crappy car.

If you want to stuff a 700cid in it for just speed, feel free. Add lots of handling to make it turn fast, go for it. Stuff a very big gun in it....go for it. Make a crappy division 100 dueler...
If you want to use toys from out on the web, like nova, demon mailing list, other website....go for it.
The only thing you can not use....No nerve gas or atomic weapons. Uncle Smellbert is fair game.

Not sure what exactly can be done with the _Shuriken_ -- "officially", Chassis and Suspension cannot be upgraded, so one is stuck with a 4,950-lb. max. load and HC 1.

That said, a quick whip-around comes up with a passable light cargo unit/ rearguard:

Luxury; Lt. chas.; Lt. susp.; Large PP; 4x PR tire; Driver. MG [F]; 3x SD [L, R, B]; 3x SS [L, R, B]; 4x Link [1 ea. SS-SD pair; 1 all DW]; Cargo: 4 spaces, 400 lbs.; FE. Armor: F, L, R: 10; B: 30; T, U: 5. $8,790; 4,550 lbs. [loaded]. Acc. 5; TS: 102.5 [loaded]; HC: 1.

Shuriken Surprise -- Luxury, Light chassis, Light suspension, Large power plant, 10-pt CA (Power Plant), Fire Extinguisher, 4 Puncture-Resistant tires, Driver w/BA and 10-pt CA, Gunner w/SWC and BA and 10-pt CA, 3 Linked Blow-through Concealed Rocket Launchers Front each w/10 shots Armor-Piercing, Plastic Armor: F20, L12, R12, B10, T4, U4, Acceleration 5, Top Speed 102.5, HC 1, 4950 lbs., $11405

The armor is on the inside - the weapons are concealed. Dedicated driver to compensate for the poor HC. Dedicated gunner to hit with the RLs.

Good: The driver/gunner combo, and the "concealed" armor.

Bad: Over Div. 10, but well under Div. 15. I'd go with a HRSWC for the Gunner.

The Shuriken should never enter the arena, ever :)

You can squeeze into Div 10 - regular RL ammo, no SWC, only flak vests. Not recommended lol

You never saw a racing event in NOVA. I have an entire series of racing vehicles based around T-cats (the "_Nuclear Banana_" series). Granted, none of them have Light Suspensions.... :)

Damn forgot about my $50K stealth WGM Shuriken lol

The Lt chassis should never be seen off the track - but on racing vehicles it's awesome
