    Best jimny setup for hillclimb?
    330

    just finish mine but I still have to compare it to a 330 Frontera who won against my 303 Jimny in wet Hillclimb. I was shocked. 
    Please let me know how it goes, I'm fusing a Jimny now, but if I should put the resources into a Fonterra instead it would be good to know, thanks
    Jimny won.

    A Mehari 303 just beat a Blazer 303 in the slalom. Did not expect that.

    So, I did the update, and after cruzing along I am now in a group with 40778. Damn. He does lack a Metro though. I also see @ATSR_997 is here.

    Me and my mediocre hand welcome you Mike!

    I just saw that we are together in all 3 events. Let’s hope that Eric Shih and the other heavy hitters don’t join

    What’s your in game name? Think I’m in your bracket... I don’t have the luxury of an MG tho 
    Paul Roxburgh, what’s yours? You near the top?

    edited to say I know who you are now, I’ll avoid you. 
    Cheers mate :) 
    No problem, let me know if you update and leave so I can play your ghost.

    Is there anything we can do to block the upgrade until tomorrow for the rest of North America? ;)

    Where do you put your Mehari so you don t loose too much points from it?
    I can't seem to get it right... costed me some 3 star victories already

    Slalom is my first choice. Then G force, then motocross. I try to avoid dirt road and hill climbs.

    i lost with 139 in a g force just10 minutes ago, thats why i asked.
    The 2 jimny, 2 pathfinder, 1 quattro team is probably better than an offset team with mehari

    I guess it depends on the offset used. I've faced hands like that and won easily. My team is
    MG Metro
    Jimny
    '87 Patrol
    Mehari
    '88 Vectra GSi

    If you run anything other than a 6r4 I don’t think the mehari is worth it.

    a lot forumers are with you @LittleEnosBurdette ; what's your hand and hand of other forumer? because i see you two with 0 loss :open_mouth:

    I am running the 6R4, but in 111 tune.
    Winning 169 in a drag race with the Metro only to loose 139 with the mehari got me wondering...
    (might as well be im placing the cars wrong :-)

    We’re running Metro’s, I just took a loss when I was trying to experiment against someone else with a Metro and it didn’t work!

    I wondered where the loss came from, thought I was going to get the blame.

    Yeh possibly you would need to have your 6r4 maxed fella, I know some sets against a more balanced hand a maxed metro just pulls you through by 30 odd points.

    The 2nd one too I presume is the same set, I haven’t raced in a while, 3rd guy running a 6r4? Has the change in points for the drags affected the selection choice maybe. 🤔
  • CometDanCometDan Member Posts: 1,207 ✭✭✭✭✭
    This was the guy with the well rounded hand, he’s got 330 Jimneys which beat my Frontera up the wet hill leaving the Metro too much to do!

    @Antoun can you beat the guy in 1st? I didn’t wanted to enter in a “war” with him since I’m often with him in events. 
    I’m avoiding you and @bluedogsnoop
    Hi Pedro ! Sorry for answering late, I was working... Happens sometimes ! Lol

    I’m doing my last upgrade and I will try to beat him, but if I can’t it’s not a problem, I would be happy with Tiers 2

    @RobGripes You want a top 2? I can feed you heaps of wins and keep the others down if you want.
    Hey mate. That's kind but no need this time. Cheers though

    Which one is better for rainy hill, patrol88 or frontera?
  • ppedrasppedras Member Posts: 936 ✭✭✭✭

    @bluedogsnoop the guy in 2nd can defeat me in some sets, not sure how many, so I don’t want to mess too much with him. But if you manage to stay really close to him like that I can make a final press just in the end. Save 2 or 3 tickets to the last 5 minutes.
