You might see your handiwork on the PlayStation.Blog.
Mod of the Week
Mod Name: Royal Racer
Decked in flames from head to toe, this Mod looks ready to bring some heat to any track the Kart is on. The color scheme is simple, and the decals are detailed but subtle. The Royal Racing team definitely has the look. Now, if there were only a matching Kart....
Kart of the Week
Kart Name: Royal Racer
The perfect complement to this week's Mod of the Week, the Royal Racer Kart carries over the same classy design and simple but effective color scheme as its Mod counterpart. Unfortunately, using both the Royal Racer Mod and kart didn't improve my skills, but MAN I looked cool coming in last!
Track of the Week
If you have a video(s) of your track submit them to http://www.youtube.com/user/TheModNationChannel by emailing mailto:ModNation@Playstation.Sony.com and we will include them in the blog if your track is showcased.
Track Name: The Elephants Graveyard
Created by: Laidbackcat
Laidbackcat says: "Race through a track dominated by these majestic creatures!"
Laidbackcat is a true ModNation Artist. As good as his track designs are, Laidbackcat goes the extra mile and makes some of the most interesting props I've seen in ModNation. This track in particular features some really impressive sculpted elephants.
Track Name: Creepy Crawlie Garden
Created by: Laidbackcat
Laidbackcat says: "These gardens have been taken over by insects and arachnids! Featuring a phenomenally large tarantula as the centerpiece attraction! Not for the squeamish..."
I've never been especially fond of spiders, and thanks to this track, I have a full on case of arachnophobia. That giant tarantula is amazing, but it's a bit scary, and so is the big loop around it. In addition to my new hatred of spiders, I think I also hate water now (stupid difficult fountain shortcut!).
Track Name: Calamity Falls G.C.
Created by: Laidbackcat
Laidbackcat says: "Annoy the upper classes as you interrupt their afternoon game of golf with a race! Enjoy the tour of this majestic country club's splendid grounds, but watch out for bunkers!"
It was just coincidence that I happened to be driving Gopher in the Golf Kart when I raced on this track for the first time, and it turned out to be the perfect combination. Much to my pleasant surprise, this track actually feels like racing on a golf course.
Every time I'm actually playing golf and I get behind the wheel of a golf cart, I dream of mashing that thing all over the course and driving like a maniac. Thanks to Laidbackcat for making my dream come true. This is brilliant.
Hot Lap Roster for this week

- Wednesday: Snake Food, by CIV_BOSS
- Thursday: Miami Nice? by atheistsw
- Friday: Pine Mountain Gorge, by Its2l84that
- Saturday: Mystery Track
- Sunday: Mystery Track
This was already included in the game. If you go through the skin files from a backup you will find many different ones there. Kratos was there and i saw some Sony Prototype too. So basicly you have to unlock something that is already there.
It will be in the PSN update next week he said... so you would have to grab it there using a PSN account and install it like anything else you would from PSN, this isn't JailBreak news so no "tricks" are required.
true, i was just copying the game some minutes ago and noticed the kratos character and kart. also saw ratchet character and uncharted characters and karts. we simply need to find a way of unlocking DLC that is already featured on the disc for many many games.
