    Don’t get sucked in by the beautiful pulls. The 70s CF is basically 1600 gold for an Aerovette

    I think it’s a decent risk. If you are gonna try your luck with Porsche CF packs then this one guarantees a decent pull IF you hit epic or legendary. There’s a lot of RQ23 / RQ27 nonsense out there.

    Hopefully I'll be able to push for at least t3 now. Been smurfing hard up until this point.

    It's not cheap for a CF but the possible cars from it make it pretty worthwhile. I don't have an Aerovette so wouldn't have minded pulling one too much. The only 'bad' pull possible is the non-Martini Turbo in my opinion, but there's a chance of a Martini, an Escort Rally or the beautiful RSR and 917.

    Went for it and got a second one of these:

    would appreciate it if we could avoid each other so we‘ll hopefully stay at least T2

    Sorry, in my 3rd ceramic 70s offer pack... didnt opened the 70s cf

    Hutch is really finding new ways of getting gold out of me, my plan of having 16k for the update might just not come to pass. back to 9,5k again. and of course I pulled the regular turbo, which I already have. 
    I suppose that's just balance after the widebody pull.
  • bantel_catbantel_cat Member Posts: 597 ✭✭✭✭
    70s pack is tempting for me...

    Still don't have an Aerovette so that wouldn't be disastrous.
    Another Escort Rally always useful
    Likewise the Martini

    Of course, the RSR or 917 would be awesome
    I just 'know' I will pull the Turbo

    No problem. I’ve got no ambitions for T1, looking like we should be ok for a CF
  • ManUtdTobbeManUtdTobbe Member Posts: 1,233 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Trans-Am + Aerovette 😔

    Yes, i‘m currently fusing a rq16 Esprit so i‘ll be using 2x Escort 2x Martini and the Esprit. 
    Think this will be enough for the CF

    Currently fusing a 2nd Martini for this hand but not sure it'll be enough in my bracket. Current Martini is 969 and I think 996 may be better for the new one on this event but less useful in future.

    If I go 699 I'll be weak on the drag sets. Tough decision.

    At least it’s a Porsche ☹️

    I mean it's less than a 25% chance to pull an Aerovette, but yep...that's what I got.  Any other car would have been useful to me, I don't have any of them.

    I suspect even a second Aerovette isn't a disaster. With the fast TVRs being 2000s and British it's a great dragster for 70s, 60-90s and US events that are either ultra-rare or RQ limited, I can easily see a couple being useful in multiple future events.  

    I got the Turbo Martini out of mine.

    @TimBut can you beat the guy in second? I can beat him on all but the double drag, we can maybe get you into second place

    Any forumers, think @nel1978 and @krystian maybe, hoping for t2

    Will avoid you 👍🏻
    Pulled a 917 so changed my hand, up to 4th at the moment so back in contention for t2, not good enough for t1 tho,  i'll leave that to you guys 
    Out of curiosity, what are you balancing a 917 with?
    The 917
    The martini Porsche
    An escort rally
    The c class skyline.
    At the moment its the green Porsche 911 as only have 16 rq spare and don't have anything better.

    I believe @ElbowWobble has the unbeatable hand.

    Pretty much my hand, except I don't have the Lancia, so I'm running the Alfetta. 

    Oh and, my 917 + RSR are only 333.  :D :D

    Oh sh*t, is that you? I did indeed. You won't be so lucky in future though — thought you were some random and thought I'd see if I could beat the 996 Martini. Obviously I didn't win. Possibly on other tracksets but now I know you're a forumer, I will stop trying. :p

    I should have checked to see who you were, sorry!
