    I'm guessing that the wrong card is displayed and that wasn't really a bbr mx-5.

    I’ve noticed that my BBR is rubbish on slalom & g-force. It’s good on racetracks though.

    I have a feeling it’s to do with the comparatively high mass. I think mass is an issue on slalom & g-f but not elsewhere.

    That’s possible. My maxed bbr is faster than beat

    But the Beat was faster here

    Yes if BBR picture is the correct one. Sometimes the game is showing the wrong car while in reality some other car is racing.

    I have my doubts.
    I lost because of "Better mid-range range acceleration" in stability tests




    Other case, lost because of "Better off-the-line acceleration"





    I do not have the print, but in other case the 'Sport Megane Trophy' lost to a 'Furai' in Twisted Road because of 'Better off-the-line acceleration' with 3.3 in 0-60 mph and 98 handling.

    Not sure about this one. M5 is slightly quicker to 60, higher top speed and 1 more handling point. Power & mass basically the same, but M5 has way more torque.
    So it’s MRA I guess. I’d love to know why the game’s algorithm thinks the M3 would be faster?

    Fully upgraded 969 RQ29 off-roader loses to an 336 RQ26 off-roader by over 4 seconds:



    Twisty circuit is one of the SQ5's strongest tracks, and dry dirt should be where all surface tyres are strongest. I'm not sure if there's a bug in the RQ ranker, or if the balance factors are just not right but it's definitely frustrating to have a higher RQ car beaten where it's strong.

    Whilst the RQs are clearly wrong, I think the result is probably right. 4wd Group B rally weapon against over-engined, leather filled family carrier.

    I think the whole RQ29 Epic think we have with Audis was a big mistake in itself, but how the BX is Epic I’ll never understand.

    M3 has great MRA and the stats understimate the value of this car (this car is better of hte stats that you see)

    The E39 M5 runs the quarter mile in 13.2 seconds @ 107 mph.
    The E92 M3 runs the quarter mile in 12.7 seconds @ 113 mph.

    That 6 mph difference in trap speed is your MRA difference.  The results are what I would expect.

    Maybe IRL, but in game, the M5 is maxed and has basically the same power to weight ratio. So do we think the difference is down to gearing? Aero / drag? I think those M3s do rev very high, and are crazy fast so I guess it’d always be close.
    I just would have thought a maxed M5 would beat a 333 M3.

    Yeah, right. I know it's probably because of weight, but still, seems stupid.

    engine upgrades = better traction lol

    I know it's only a Super rare car, I know I shouldn't be bothered but excuse me what the f*ck..."YOu rAn OuT oF rOaD bEfoRe ReAchIng tHe tArgeT SpEed" ****... got a DNF aroun 25 seconds, the audi kept going for a whole minute. On 1 mile drag the Thema achieves 142mph and it takes 34.7 seconds. I know a lot of cars can't reach a 150 in time besides their top speed but this is heart breaking for me because I love the Thema and it was so long to get it and now it's a piece of **** basically.

    I think the pilot miss a gear shift
    stability test, i have better accel, grip, mra, top speed and lower weight

    You're right I'm afraid, Hutch has said that if a car can't hit 150 mph without any upgrades, it won't ever hit it. Which is crazy.
    Mine has been sat in my garage for a while.

    So basically that's a theoretical top speed? Unbelievable, I'm confused about the Thema, what's the purpose of a sleeper if it's slow, actually the Peugeot 405 Mi16 also a sleeper and it's awfully slow even for D-class standards. The only sleepers which are really useful for drag are the Carlton and the E500 Merc (for me... I don't have either the RS2 Audi and Jag XJR)

    Soon we will run out of excuses for the cars and start blaming the driver.

    That's funny because I thought maybe I lost because it's a Lancia and it fell apart during the race. Of course if you have an Alfa Romeo it has a high chance to brake down. LOTUS logo will be replaced with this -----> Lots Of Trouble Usually Serious. I think these will be in the next update :D

    My Nissan GTR R32 turned 996 lost to the same car tuned 969 on a 1/2 dirt drag race, how is this possible? I thought that drag races at least worked without issues.

    Standard tires for the win!

    I wonder why they tried to make all those Group B rally cars as light as possible, people where so stupid in the 80's, if they only knew this what we know now, that more weight equals faster cars, I am sure the Cadillac would have won the Group B championship (sarcasm)
