So, something like this has always been on my mind, but I was hesitant in bringing it up since one of the best things about RC was the cutt-throat "every-man-for-himself" approach that races took. But after seeing a similar suggestion on the Steam forums and on page 2 of this thread (but it wouldn't be 2v2v2v2 as suggested) after scanning over it, I'm curious about what people's thoughts are.
I was wondering how a "team" system in the game would work out, later on in development. And by teams, I mean "clans", "guilds", "groups", whatever you preferred terminology is. That system in and of itself would, ideally, have depth in the sense that you use points your members earn from winning races to unlock cosmetics/team functionality... but that's out of the scope of this thread.
How about, simply, a team-based racing mode? For example, if there 10 cars total so it would be a 5v5. The HUD would display each racer's name in their respective team's color (and perhaps their cars would also have an appropriate paintjob, as well) making it dead-obvious in the heat of the race who is on whose team. Would add a bit of an interesting dynamic, I think.
