    I have sierra sitting 966, what is better for citystreets 996 or 969? Are they normal or car wash citystreet? 
    Santa Monica Car Wash
    Probably makes 996 best for this but 969 better overall?  I made mine 969 which is what most seem to be.
    That has been the case in the past.

    How should I finish my third RS200? Currently have one 969 and one 699 - thanks!

    @bantel_cat I see you’ve just hit the top 10 in my bracket. What’s it like up there? What are you running?

    I'll post some hands when I get another ticket.
    Running a Project 8, 3 x RS200 and Sierra Cossie. Wish my third RS200 wasn't 996 now (after I deliberated bloody ages on it).
    As it stands should be good for top 10.

    I see @LittleEnosBurdette is also here.

    Joined too early. My bracket looks like Seaworld.

    Four maxed RS200s and a maxed Cossie and I can’t get near top 10. Smurfing for me.

    I'm in the same situation except mine are 996 and 969. Does 699 win against 969 enough to be worthwhile for this event?

    Multiple Jags - a few have the Project 8 plus two F-Type SVRs. People with single Jags tend to have three maxed RS200s plus a Cosworth.

    This will be exactly my hand too. Is your P8 tuned at all? Think a 333 P8 will suffice?

    Maybe, things would be more interesting if you could only enter 1 of any vehicle. Would cause some variety in hands.

    Anyone in my group who can assist me? Happy with T2. Got an f type svr 333, galaxy, escort and Sierra cosworths and rs200, all fully tuned.
    You are Matt Woodhouse? If yes I must say sorry for hitting you. I will avoid you now. 😉

  • mauro07mauro07 Member Posts: 1,989 ✭✭✭✭✭
    A question for hutch... how do you build this event? You put into track set a drag race, ban rwd, only english and 4wd and rq120... if you don't have S jaguar (only cars with bonus), it's a festival of rs200(few days ago similar event for '80?) and then you sell 10 cf jaguar, so you create a perfect event for increase your income €€€€ .... good job!! Ah and i start to complai because every time i complain i find an S car from ceramic 😀😀😀

    No my P8 is 333. There is another 333 P8 in my bracket and another at 666.
    The P8 at 333 will lose to maxed F-Type SVR. So it depends on your bracket.
    I'm certainly won't be putting any fuses in mine. My 'natural' position is 3-5 at the moment, Tier 2 is fine especially as it gives an UR food which I always lack.

    I'm amazed there are some maxed Jag Legendaries, some people must pump in serious money to do this. If I had one it would be way down my list.

    Nice one, thanks 👍
    I just don’t understand where everyone is getting these RS200s 🤷🏼‍♂️
    I got one early in my 'career' and then lucky enough to get another 2.
    The 996 though is annoying here as it loses on 3 out of 4 tracksets generally.

    Currently playing through Dirt 4 and got to the Group B Career races, bought myself a Metro, RS200, Delta S4 & Stradale... utter monsters!

    I was thinking exactly this myself. How many resources would you have to have to pump 15 epics into an SVR!? (Says the guy with a maxed 959). 
    Ive got 1 fuse on my SVR and even that was painful. 

    Don’t think I’ll be strong enough for top 10 in this bracket 👎

    I’ll get an RS200 the day it goes back up to Epic!

    I have a real problem putting fuses into most of my prize cars, since we’re limited on their use in the important events.  Only the people who dump loads of money into the game would max them all.

    100% agree. For now, I’m de-prioritising my 918 & Dakar and favouring my Huyara & Macan because they might actually be useable in a big event one day. 

    Which is a real shame.

    We work (& pay) so hard to get these collectors items, but only super whales can justify upgrading them 👎

    In my more reflective times, it makes me think “what is the actual aim of this game?”

    This for me is currently the biggest problem with the game, and the one thing that could make me drift off. I should be upgrading my 918/Dakar but instead I have fuses in a crappy 911 turbo.

    I’ve been thinking about this a lot recently (I considered writing a separate post about it but I doubt enough people are interested in my opinion) and to cut a long story short I think hutch need to make a call about prize cars and stick to it. 

    Either say: “prize cars will never be allowed in major finals”, or “prize cars will always be allowed”. This some-will-some-won’t just creates another type of luck in the game that we don’t need (luck that you upgrade a prize car that IS allowed at some point vs isn’t ever allowed).

    I get the snowballing issue, but if they exclude prize cars from finals, the same people will still win regardless. Because the whales always win anyway. 

    So either tell us whether they are worth fighting for, or just for the trophy cabinet & daily. 

    Side note: it’s good that the project 8 can be used in this prelim, but let’s be fair, the S class tier 1 prize is probably going to be useless in the final.

    was that a rant? If so: rant over 👍

    @krystian Oh boy, Henrik's mad. No pun intended. 


    That boy must have money to burn. He does this in every major event, and his race totals are always ridiculous. Picking a fight as well is just alpha male nonsense. It’s only a game! 😬😂
