Based off the Source engine Goat Racer is a vehicle combat gamemode for Garry's Mod. It's an arcade-style game in which you have to race to the finish first. You can do this by straight out racing or you could improve your chances by buying weapons and upgrading your vehicle. The action is high-paced, crazy and offers MORE then 6000 ability/upgrade/weapon/paintjob/vehicle combinations. If you're lucky you might find yourself firing a flack cannon from a Lamborghini at 300 MPH.

Well, the beta (December 26th) was a complete success, racking up some nice racing footage and having some fun. I got enough money from just loosing to get me a jet engine.

We're all too low level to unlock awesome vehicles and weapons, so it all started with these normal jeep races without weapons. Later on we found out that the airhorn worked superbly;

The only bugs visible on the beta were that the player models in the vehicles somehow ended up far from their original vehicle.
