RaceTo is a format that involves playing multiple games against a team, generally back to back, up to a point limit. For every game you win, your team is awarded a point. If you win 4 games, you win the match.

A couple important notes:
-You will use a lot of paint; Several cases each.
-Generally, you'll have a short amount of time to get ready between points. During this time, you'll need to wipe off hits, get new pods, and fill up on air. You will almost certainly want some people to help you with this.
-You'll need a ****load of pods. I would suggest, at minimum, 50-60 for the team. You won't have enough time to collect and refill your pods in between points, so you'll need to have extras that are already filled that you can grab quickly. Filling them will be the job of your pit crew.
-Have fun.

For 3 man, plan for everyone to need to carry 5 pods per point and have 2 points worth of pods loaded and ready to go so you can grab them and go while your staff fills more. So, I would say 40 pods to be safe.

For race-4 3 man I would probably load 5 cases worth of pods. You can always use them for the next match, but peace of mind knowing you can turn around quickly is key.
