Why Can't an Orange Car Ever Win Tuner Battlegrounds?

Why Can't an Orange Car Ever Win Tuner Battlegrounds?

If you're into the Tuner Battlegrounds scene, you may have noticed a strange trend in PASMAG's Tuner Battlegrounds competition that we can't help but notice as well: Orange cars seem to be cursed. No matter how great the modifications, or how impressive the performance, orange cars just can't seem to catch a break. This phenomenon occurs every year, and it's something we're interested in. So what's going on here?


First of all, it's important to note that this isn't a scientific phenomenon, but rather something funny we noticed. There's no real evidence to suggest that orange cars are actually cursed, and it's entirely possible that the whole thing is just a coincidence. However, it is true that orange cars have historically struggled in the Tuner Battlegrounds competition.


One theory is that orange is just an unpopular color in the tuner community. While there are certainly some orange cars out there that look amazing - and we can name a few - it's not a color that everyone can pull off. It's a bold choice that requires a certain level of confidence and creativity to really make work, and definitely requires a cohesive theme to the build. Some people might be drawn to more nuanced colors, and might be less likely to vote for an orange car simply because they don't like the bright look.


Another possibility is that the color orange just doesn't photograph well. In a competition like Tuner Battlegrounds, where voters are primarily seeing the cars online or in photos, it's important for the car to look impressive in pictures. Orange can be a tricky color to capture accurately, and if the photos don't do the car justice, it might not attract as many votes as it deserves.


Of course, there's also the chance that it really is just a coincidence. There's no mystical force out there actively working against orange cars, despite the longstanding history of orange cars getting their TBG runs cut short. It's entirely possible that the cars themselves - or the owners - just haven't been quite as impressive as their competitors online.


While there may not be a definitive answer to why orange cars seem to struggle in Tuner Battlegrounds competition, it's still an interesting phenomenon to think about. If you're thinking about entering your own car in the competition, you might want to consider a different color just in case. But if orange is your thing, don't let this superstition hold you back! At the end of the day, it's all about how you feel about your own car, regardless of what anyone else thinks. We'll be eagerly waiting for one of you to break the orange curse.
