I Think TAR should update all the route markers / clues and design of the clues and clueboxes after TAR 25 to make it more modern looking and not use the same old design. like how they changed the uturn boards digital

No they can never update the iconic red and yellow route markers  :ascared
Maybe just for a special season though  :conf:

I don't like how they made the Double U-Turn boards touch screen. In its debut in Malawi, you could only see the dark screen and barely see the U-Turn victim and perpetrator's picture. Same thing happened in TAR20 Tanzania. The TAR12-18 board is a lot more prettier in my opinion and it creates more of a sense of "You're our biggest competition" with a physical picture posted onto the space. You could even write special messages with Sharpie on pictures like, "Sorry, we can't outrun you!!!" :lol:

Yeah, I agree. The old U-Turn board is minimalist, but had more race feeling than the current board

maybe keep the yellow and red but the clue envelopes route info roadblock info detour info and whatnot

As they say, if it's not broken, don't fix it. However I agree on the Uturn board!
I would love if they altered between the Uturn and a yield. A double yield sounds pretty cool!

Very sad to see Yield element is missing from the game. 2 Yield/U-Turn each should be fair enough in the Race

I loved the yield, but I also like the element someone came up with about 2 pages back.

TAR should visit New South China Mall in Dongguan, China.  It is the largest mall in the world, but it is 99% vacant.  Imagine the teams searching through 2,000 empty store locations! lol

Wow, there are actually a lot of ghost malls and whole ghost cities in China!

I'd love to see TAR point teams to some ghost city and then teams realize there's not a single person anywhere!
