Included in the Stunt Pack are 14 parts listed below.
Double Decker Bus
Interactive Truck Trailer Mini Ramp

MNR Halloween themed creations contest
Submit your original Halloween themed Karts, Mods, and Tracks here
for a chance to win a free Mod and Kart. The winner's creations will be showcased in November's first ModNation Monday blog.
MNR Creations of the Week
Amazing creations in ModNation get shared every day and we are playing a ton of them. If you are interested in submitting your mod, kart or track to be a future "creation" of the week be sure to visit up on the official ModNation Community site
and who knows? You might see your handy work on the PlayStation.Blog.
Mod of the Week
Mod Name: Badimo
If there is life on other planets and they are cage fighters, this guy is one of them. The lifeless black eyes and spiraling of razor wire make it pretty clear that he's not to be messed with. If you download him, I suggest that you don't lose. I don't think he'll like it.
Kart of the Week
Kart Name: Meltdown
Apparently demons can be gangsta rappers. One look at this Kart, and you'll understand why. From the anguished airbrushed face on the hood front to the beating heart engine in the back, this ride is all freaky. Throw in that wood grain finish for a touch of class, and you've got a whip that's fit for even the most discerning demonic taste.
Track of the Week
If you have a video(s) of your track submit them to MNR's YouTube channel
by emailing [email protected]
and we will include them in the blog if your track is showcased.
Track Name: Alphorma
Created by: Adie23
Adie23 says "This once peaceful coastal city is now home to jumps, traps, tight turns and barrels of doom"
This track isn't hyper-populated with props all over the place and it isn't super long, and I think those are the reasons it shines. There are turns that have to be carefully negotiated, there are boost pads that may or may not be worth going for (Adie23 was sneaky about that in a couple of spots), and there's enough air, drift opportunities, and pods to keep you boosting and competitive in some quick and dirty races.
Hot Lap Roster for this week
Continuing with the trend we started weeks ago this weeks Hot Lap roster features all new community created tracks.
