    Any tips for round 13?

    My winning hand from 1st to 5th race:

    (all are maxed)
    - RQ16 Jaguar XK140 (prize car): +50
    - RQ13 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am: +50
    - RQ15 VW Sharan: +152
    - RQ10 Alfa Spider S1 (prize car from this challenge): +50
    - RQ10 VW Type 2 (bus): -50

    Use a good STD tyres car for the karting vs the Fiat 500 to try to win at +150, and just win the 3 other races (except with the bus, just lose by no more than 50 if possible).

    Why would you put the Firebird on a wet slalom?

    It is not so bad. It is not the fastest, but it is not the worst from RQ13

    Because it easily wins the race.

    I don't see in what it is better on wet karting here.
    (just for info: Firebird = 50'53 / Sharan = 49'89)

    The goal is to get +250 , that's all.

    A player would make more point with a better dragger, by saving the RQ on the karting circuit.  The Firebird only loses 11 point to the Sharan, but it saves 2 RQ in a very low RQ event.  With a decent low RQ dragger, you can get near 100 points on the 4th stage.

    100 pts on the drag (for Round 13) with just 2 RQ more here (wich means with a RQ 17-18 car)?
    I frankly doubt it.
    Was using the Jag XK140 which is a good one / with good MRA and was still only making +50 (inverted the Jag and the Alfa by mistake in my first post).

    I previously tried to find which low RQ dragger could be a killer for the 1/2 mile here, and I haven't found any (or using lot more RQ, above 20 for sure).

    CORRECTION: I inverted the Jag and the Spider by mistake in my post.

    Some winning hands for Rounds 14 and 15 (still if useful for anyone):

    Round 14
    (all maxed)
    +273
    - RQ10 Alfa Spider: +59
    - RQ13 Pontiac Firebird: -50
    - RQ15 Chevrolet Matiz: +128
    - RQ17 Jaguar XK120: +86
    - RQ10 VW Type 2 (bus): +50 - important: bus at 9.6.9 wins, not at 9.9.6

    Round 15
    (all maxed)
    +254
    - RQ10 Alfa Spider: +52
    - RQ13 Pontiac Firebird: +64
    - RQ19 Ford Focus Coupe-Cab: +138
    - RQ12 Alfa 1750 GTV (at 9.6.3 is enough): +50
    - RQ10 VW Type 2 (bus): -50

    Round 16 was easy for me (RQ59 Stealth / RQ45 Iroc / 962C / RQ77 Hellcat / Dodge Dart).

    Stuck on round 17. My only chance will be to upgrade (max?) my RQ59 Stealth again (no CF pack this time :# )

    Does someone know if that RQ59 Stealth can win on one of the first two races?
    Monaco Streets (time to beat 41:90)
    Monaco G-force (time to beat 34:58)

    Thanks @EndlessWaves , you rock.
    :)

    So it would not even win on Monaco G-Force. :o

    Will not go further with the upgrades then (just had launch the second grip upgrade, kinda wasted some food but that Dodge should still be useful later).

    It's officially over for me on Round 17 then, no last Ceramic.

    We needed a pretty strong Dodge garage to finish that challenge...

    So I remembered incorrectly.  It’s more near 75 points, but still 5 RQ less.
