I came up with a new mod Idea for Cars Mater National, that is to make a Cars 3 mod in Mater National. Now as of right now we aren't able to add in Cars 3 character models and voices but it might be posible later in the future to make accurate models and have it compatable with Mater National, we need a 3D model expert. But this is impossible as of right now, because of this I have to make new characters out of existing models
Here are the Characters:Lighting McQueen Needs Cars 3 Paintjobs (Is Playable in the originalgame)
Cruz Ramirez Her model will be made of the Dragon McQueen (Not Started yet)
Mater Finished! (he is playable in the original game)
Mater the Greater F…

While the project idea for this mod won't take place for a while (or at all), I decided to make a potential list of what to expect here. Respond if you have opinions.
Cars Hi-Octane 2 (Unofficial title) GOALS:
1. To have all characters unlocked by default.
2. To fix potential bugs.
3. To use textures and graphics from the X-Box 360 version of Cars 2 the videogame for all content.
4. To include Cars 2 DLC characters that were exclusive to the X-Box 360/PS3 versions.
5. To include content from Cars 3: Driven to Win (i.e. Characters, Races, Stunt Mode, Best Lap Challenge, Thomasville Playground, Master Level Events, Cup Series, Custom Cup, Customizations like horns, undercarriage lighting colors, turbo boost colors and styles, etc. as seen in said g…

Hey guys! Jak8/Puffjak8/Jack/Vi here, and I have got some great news for myself! I have FINALLY gotten some actually legitimately good recording software for me to record Mater-National without bad quality, like a capture card! If you're wondering what exactly I'm using, it's called OBS. It's free and it can even make long enough videos alongside livestreams! I can't wait to start using this recording software!

Hey everybody! It's me, Puffjak8/Jak8/Jack/Vi. I have got some good knews for whomever is subscribed to my YouTube channel (at this point I think two of you). I will finally be able to go back to uploading soon! I will try new angles with my 3DS camera and even try to record more than one video to upload at a time. I think that I will have a good time with my newer uploads but until then, I promise to keep updated a little. I plan on doing practice videos of me practicing for one of my first big Modded 100 % No Abilities (meaning no powerslide, tilt or boost) speedruns for the speedrun.com leaderboard (which I am the head of) as well as maybe showcases of paint jobs (I know I plan on showing off the new paint jobs from Cars 3!) Until then,…Read more >
Hey guys. Jak8/Jack/Vi here! I know it's been another long while, time seems to love keeping me away from here but oh well, I just got to keep up with everything going on. So, I am looking for a few people to help me out here with something. I want to host a livestream, but unfortunately it does not seem like I can get the full version of Bandicam any sooner than maybe summer. I don't know. It all has to do with school and how it ends up. I think it will be alright, but for now, I just cannot have the livestream without a good capture device that can record longer than ten minutes in good quality. Me, TrackManiaMatt, and CAHoltz were all planning on being a part of this livestream, and this will still go on, it will just take a while. But …Read more >

Hey guys, Jak8 here. I know this is a bit late, but it's a new year everybody! And so with that, I have made a few resolutions to do with this wikia and myself. First, I have decided to retire from paint job making for now, seeing as how the page got too clustered. However, someone has taken my place, being Kevin-BS23, and he is doing an amazing job from what I can gather and tell. So I will leave him in charge of the page. Next, glitches. As always, I will be doing my best to explain glitches on here, however if I find a glitch that I feel needs something more than just a small comment to explain, I'll make a video to help explain it. Not much else is needing explanation there, so I'll just move on. And finally, speedrunning. Yes, I do ne…Read more >
Hey guys! Jak8/Jack/Vi again. I think I'm going to need help. I've been trying to think about reasons as to why the Race-O-Rama alts of McQueen didn't have their wheels attached. I even recently started looking inside the files and texture directories to try and see if there is anything not connected or coded or something. And I think I may have found something. I looked inside the texture files of Off-Road McQueen, and I found something I thought didn't belong. I looked at the directories of the other Race-O-Rama alts and sure enough, it was in those directories as well. Then I looked at regular Lightning's directories and it WASN'T there! I think I may have found something important! But I need help to be sure. I am trying to get this in…Read more >
Hey guys, Jak8 here, and I am super stoked! Why? Because we officially have a leaderboard for Cars: Mater-National Speedrunning, that's why! I'm super happy, we can finally officially start speedrunning Mater-National! Even if you're not interested, I would go check out the leaderboard for Mater-National at speedrun.com. It would really help out. Now, I still haven't seen CAHoltz OR TrackManiaMatt, so if anybody could contact them to come to my message wall, I have a message for them waiting there (I don't want to have to go separately to both of their message walls just to tell each of them this, nor do I want to have to make someone else open up a message board on someone else's message wall just so we can specifically meet up and talk a…Read more >
Hey guys! Jak8/Jack here. I have a quick, yet still requiring news update, regarding speedrunning Cars: Mater-National. I am currently requesting Cars: Mater-National to be able to be ran for a speedrun, but I just sent the request in, so it may take a while. But in the meantime, we could practice trying to get tricks down and how to optimally move, if anybody's interested in that besides me. However, I was hoping that I could get a new speedrun to be able to get a better chance of getting this requested accepted, if anybody's willing to help me out with that. But as I was thinking of speedrunning Cars: Mater-National, I thought of something: could CAHoltz and TrackManiaMatt come to my message wall to talk about what we could do for the li…Read more >
Hello. Jak8/Puffjak8/Jack here! I have FINALLY gor almost a firm grip on how to make these paint jobs better and quicker, but I still need time. I will work on it as much as possible and when I'm available. I will also make sure to post updates on how I'm doing the paint jobs to see if I'm doing it right. If I'm doing one for you currently (at the time of this post, Ferrari27), then you can come over to the paint job requests page and see if I'm doing the paing job the way you want it to be. You can tell me what you want the colors to look like if it's not exactly as you see fit. With that said, I'll only give you one opportunity to tell me, I'll show you the updated colors, and I'll go from there, no stops, until I finish. Then it will be…Read more >
Hey, I am back! I've been gone for a while, almost back in March! My goodness! But anyway, I will finally be able to not only play the mod again, but also do a lot of other things, like uploading YouTube videos to my channel as well as helping find and explain glitches found in the mod. Though as for paint job making, well... I may have to do it one at a time, but I could still do it, thank goodness. I'm at least glad to be back from three-month limbo. (NOTE: If at all possible, I would like to contact Vladimir29, Ferrari27, NASCARrules33, CAHoltz, and Robstar123456 if possible, all at the same time. Just use my message wall to talk with me. One of you will create the message, doesn't matter who (be sure to name it "Talk with Modders and U…Read more >
Okay, I'm at a loss. Making paint jobs is harder that it seems. It takes a lot of precision and time and effort and, well... I don't have time or precision. I can't for the sake of all in this mod continue to make paint jobs. It just won't work out. Now, I have requested the help of Vladmir to create the paint jobs since he seems to already be making them. I will remain in charge of the paint job request page, but he would make the paint jobs that are on the list, message me when he's done with them, and I'll take them off of the list. But I can't make the paint jobs. If anyone else makes them, they would already be a million times better. But I will still be around to explain glitches and all that. But you may have noticed I was gone for …Read more >
Hello. Jak8 again. I think it's about time I make another blog post (the only reason why I haven't been making blog posts is because nothing really interesting was happening), because I am now going to be a modder of Cars: Hi-Octane Edition alongside NASCARrules33 and Vladmir29. I will be doing textures, so if anybody wants to request a texture, then please tell me on either the Skin Requests page, the Forum, the Cars: Hi-Octane Mod main page, or here on this blog. Please don't post a request on any other page as I will not respond to it, even if it's a page I'm at almost all the time (like the Cars: Hi-Octane Mod Glitches page). Thank you. I'm so sorry, CatQuangAnh, that you quit because of getting run off, but I will try my best to be li…Read more >
Hello. Jak8/Puffjak8/Jack here. Unfortunately, I've got more bad news. I'm afraid that I couldn't fix the last three videos with their camera views. I'm sorry, but those parts will not be posted, unfortunately, unless everybody really wants to see them anyway, which at the angle the camera is, I doubt you would (you can't see any of the screen). But, that's really it. I'm sorry that this blog post was short, I don't really have anything more to update on, since school for me doesn't start until tomorrow, August 24, 2015. So I'm out for now. EDIT: I'm afraid I can't post it. I'm sorry. I really wanted to do this, but it can't be done. I'm sorry.

Hello. Jak8/Puffjak8/Jack here. I'm here with some good news and some bad news. The good news is that I managed to finish my (now semi-speed run, I guess) speed run, and my time was 2:23:52.71. Now, from an expert runner's stand point, that was a really, really, EXTREMELY bad time, and a lot of things went wrong throughout, but I'm okay with that time. But now the bad news. You see, I won't be able to upload any more gameplay videos of the Cars: Hi-Octane Edition mod for at least a while (maybe, if I'm extremely lucky, then winter of this year) because I'm gonna be involved in quite a bit of outside activity, like school, Theater, Choir, and Boy Scouts. Does that mean I won't try to help out the wikia anymore? No. Absolutely not. I'm stil…Read more >
Hello. Jak8/Jack/Puffjak8 here. And I've decided that I'm going to be doing a video series on youtube, commemorating the mod, all it's become, the modders, and most importantly, Teancum, who created the Cars: Hi-Octane Mod, but is also for Infinikip who is leaving for at least a little while. The video series is going to be a speed run of the Cars: Mater-National Story Mode on Expert difficulty, so if I seem like I'm trying to get through the story mode very quickly, that's why (a speed run is where you try to complete the story of a game in the fastest time possible by practicing the game, as well as learning how to do certain glitches and exploits to help you get through even faster than normal, which, unfortunately, Cars: Mater National…Read more >
Hello. Jak8 again. I'm blogging now to tell you what I will post on the Talks as well as on my youtube channel. First off, my youtube channel will be all about showing off the mod as well as finding and showing glitches in the mod. Then for what I'll post, I'm a pretty serious guy, so if you're not humored by things that I say, that's normal. I'm also not going to ask for private information, but try to keep cool and just talk about things as they come. I will also try to take pictures of the game in order to show off glitches I've found in the game with the mod installed. Now, the thing I will be using to take these pictures and videos with is my Nintendo 3DS XL (not the new one), so if they're bad quality, then oh well, I don't have Band…Read more >
Hello. This is my first blog on this wikia, and I am more than happy to be here. First off, I have the Cars: Hi-Octane Edition Mod installed on my computer, so I am ready to be of help finding glitches as well as showcasing/demonstrating the mod and the updates to come. I hope I will be of help.
