    Use the one from your profile picture.

    @LittleEnosBurdette              i'm with you... what is the hand of first? :O
    I’m still trying things out, not easy as a couple of people have raptors and I don’t.

    Raptor, Metro, Swift Rally, Escort (13) and Blazer seems to be the choose of the day 😉

    I've slightly modified it since. Swap out the Swift for the Fiat Rally.

    No metro and a 333 Raptor so I'm working my way up from early smurf with this.

    Worked quite well in 1 match:

    @Djehoetie I’m with you, not going to trouble you for tier one but would appreciate any mercy so I can grab a easy ceramic 👍🏼

    Love the event, I hope it's not a one-off thing again.

    I spot @TopDives in my bracket. Is James Brown on the forums too or does his name stick out because of the artist? 😂
    I'm not doing that great :(
  • TimButTimBut Member Posts: 618 ✭✭✭✭
    I also hope it won't be 80rq again. Hate those restrictions

    what happened here?
  • hillclimberhillclimber Member Posts: 1,773 ✭✭✭✭✭
    yeah yeah, a lot of smart kids here.

    but honestly this is to me the most unexpected lost ever. I have no clue what happened there. the TBSS should be bad on hill climbs in particular on the snowy one. while the Raptor isn't really anywhere good in relation to it's RQ except when it gets bumpy, in particular on rough surface.

    The Raptor has never been brilliant at the uphill sprint, it just doesn't seem to have the acceleration past a certain speed to keep up. The same issue as the Hummer H3.

    Unexpected but awesome event @hutch! Even tho I have no chance at tier 1 without metro hummer or raptor...
  • TimButTimBut Member Posts: 618 ✭✭✭✭
    why would you need hummer

    You need a hummer if you haven’t got a Raptor.

    Changed my hand. Much better now. Right there with you :)
  • greddygreddy Member Posts: 955 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Any good tier 2 hand without metro, raptor or hummer? 
  • ManUtdTobbeManUtdTobbe Member Posts: 1,114 ✭✭✭✭✭
    G-wagon, 15 Hummer, 8 Blazer, Escort and 924 Rally working OK for me, not great but seems to be enough for T2
  • TimButTimBut Member Posts: 618 ✭✭✭✭
    what hummer u r talking about? UR?
    is it anywhere better than datsun, swift, Escort?

    G-wagon is weak on a few track sets though so you can probably improve the hand. My TBSS is 969 or i’d try that
  • mazeoopsmazeoops Member Posts: 818 ✭✭✭✭
    Could someone answer me why hummer? Which track?
  • ManUtdTobbeManUtdTobbe Member Posts: 1,114 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Takes up a US slot and it’s good on snow 🤷‍♂️

    correct me if I'm wrong. but I'm quite sure your statement is wrong. the Raptor used to be on the snowy hill climb second best or best car, might only lost to the 6x6. (Dakar wasn't in the game back then)

    A 696 will beat 996 tbss everyone that isn't hillclimb and drag, and you can probably seen out non-tbss hands on those tracksets.  This may be one event where a 969 is useful.

    You're right. Ever since they changed the hillclimb mechanics, offroad tires don't matter as much as they used to. All that matters is low 0-60 time and all surface tires  I wish they'd go back to the mechanics they originally had because they made more sense back then
