    Pretty amazed that the final hand, to win an ultra rare, contains 2 DNF cars. 

    When I think back the the virtually impossible RS200 challenge it makes me cry inside a little.
    true, though on the other hand rs200 was a genuinely useful late-game car and this is food for epics
    I’m keeping the SHO. Only 4WD UR Ford I’m ever likely to get 😿

    And Escort Cosworth.

    I don’t think I’ll ever get it. And even if I did I’d probably accidentally fuse it. I’m far more likely to pull a Chiron!

    Yeah, that last challenge set doesn't really make sense, I've passed that on so we hopefully avoid things being that trivial in future.

    I'm pretty happy with the car it ends up awarding though, Taurus SHO's for everyone! Maybe some people will upgrade them!

    Can I trade mine for an RS200 and a fiver, wink wink?

    What are you trying to say....?


    making the last stage so easy that everyone gets the car makes me think that they did it on purpose and that it will be crucial at some point

    Had anyone been retaining data on the challenge prize cars?

    What percentage have been ultra rares?  Feels like it's been maybe 25-33% range, is that accurate??

    That's both 4WD US URs on perf tyres. Better keep this one, I used the SHO quite quickly as food.

    Same here. Went straight into my 2-11 for the 22b event.

    Rounds 6-10 easily done with five Stealts. :D

    As much as I enjoy easy wins, something should be done about the Stealth (and Lumina) as soon as possible.

    Khmm, rounds 11-15 easilly done with five Stealths. :)

    I was so naive and thought that this stealth/lumina bug will be quickly fixed - for which reason I still only have 1 maxed stealth...

    Seriously how can Hutch change performace of 2 cars so significantly withour re-running RQ check on them.

    It reminds of Italian cars patch release where 80% of cars had totally messed up RQs - still a mystery to me how this could happen and get approved for release. Got fixed pretty quick though.

    For ages I couldn't find a second Stealth, but then after a while they started coming my way. I quickly collected five, and even fused some away. Then a recent event encouraged me to max four more of them. I haven't regretted it since. Once they'll be moved to the correct RQ (14, I guess), I'll probably sell most of them, and get the invested money back (upgrade cost of uncommon: 21,500$, sell price of maxed rare: 23,969$). It's never too late. :)

    I recall someone having done a load of calculations about the cost of upgrading a car, and while the cash cost might be $21,500, you’ve also fused 15 cars worth $250 each, so another $3,750. Total fuse cost of an uncommon is therefore more like $25,250, so you don’t quite get your money back in that way. Maxed Stealth wins you loads of cash and gold in the meantime, however, so still good value!

    I've done the calculations as well, here's how it looks in case of an uncommon:
    upgrades (1.1 - 3.3): 3*400+3*475+3*550+3*550+3*650+3*750+2*750+2*875+2*1125 = total 15,625
    fuses: 3*700+2*950 = total 4,000
    fused cars: 15*125 = total 1,875 (assuming all fused cars are commons)

    So grand total is 21,500$

    I think I’m just too lazy to upgrade 3-4 of those stealths. Since I’m farming all minor events I don’t need more than one anyway. That’s sufficient to 3* 20+ races a day in events where it’s useful.
    and since all events finish early morning for me it’s not worth to get up so early to fight for ceramic.
  • Blue2moroBlue2moro Member Posts: 948 ✭✭✭✭
    A challenge with US requirement doesn't exactly dissuade from stealthing the challenge either. Rounds 3 and 4 3* with these (up to 3rd race of round 4 anyway).


  • CasualMobileGamerCasualMobileGamer Member Posts: 115 ✭✭✭
    It's definitely Stealth Time! However one tricky round in the end...

    Not much conversation in here nowadays, probably because this is the second weekly challenge in a row, where rounds 6-15 can easily be done using 5 Stealths.

    Agreed. RQ rebalance can’t come soon enough. Good to be getting a 2nd or even 3rd UR prize in a row though 👍
