    I don't have the S 55, only just the budget version the C 55. And my question is, is this car somewhat useful in any type of future events?
    What tune is that? 996? I would imagine 969 being more useful. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a maxed C 55, and I always fuse them away myself. No sense in getting rid of it now though.
    It's a 996 upgraded, I thought maybe another medium ride height drag-ish car would be good paired with my Carlton, it's better than the E500, but if I'll get the S55 this will be overshadowed.
    Have you compared drag times? The E500 has some ballin mid range. For non-drag stuff the C 55 is better for sure, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see the E500 give it a run for its money on the straights

    i checked on the drag times and the C 55 slightly better in every drag.

    How does the S63 and the Esprit 350 V8 hold up?

    Don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone with an S 63. The 350 can be decent as far as dragger Lotuses go - maxes 3.9/94 I believe

    How 996 compared to 969 on different tracks?

    I have the S63. I'd never spend the 15 B-class to max it myself, but it has crazy good midrange albeit not much top-end due to the limiter. Might be a good RQ-saver for 1/2 mile drags or 75-125 or the likes.

    996 wins car wash citystreet, 969 wins normal citystreets and everything wet, didnt use it elsewhere yet
  • Blue2moroBlue2moro Member Posts: 1,428 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I went 996 with the srt8 as I only have 1 hellcat so it'll be used on shorter drags in this event.

    stat-wise not very good for me. 
    I've pulled two of these darn things. Not great.

    Mine has served me quite well in the Porsche finals. Not on par with the higher end Porsches obviously, but I’d say it’s pretty good. Good midrange as aforementioned

    I did mine 969, prob best overall tune but cant say for certain. Good for things like hairpin and city streets without road bumps, there are better cars for its RQ but can be useful for US/AM events.

    Hi guys! 

    Can someone share an advice regarding this two? I wondering how strong they are in general, trying to understand should I up them or not. For now they are my strongest per each manufacturer.

    If they're your strongest in each manufacturer, then yes absolutely keep them. They're good but neither are amazing cars, so I would at least 333 them and see if an event needs them, then start upgrading.

    In my experience, Epic BMWs are extremely hard to come by. I've had two in the whole year and 3 months I've been playing... They were duplicates and I didn't keep either of them. 😑 

    For that reason, personally would keep the M6 no matter what.

    By looking at the M6's stats it looks good except the top speed. upgraded to 969 the 0-60 is 3.4, grip 91 and the MRA is 91.35 also a medium ground clearance which is very useful

    91.35 what? Where are you getting these quantitative measures of midrange?

    To clarify, I’m not disagreeing with you, the M6 Gran Coupe has quite good midrange.

    It would seem this value of 91.35 is from RexKwonDo's MRA calculation equation

    Yep: it’s all listed and sortable on topdrivesclub as well.

    Does anyone have a maxed out 57s? And if does, what are the stats for? I want to max out mine because it was useful in the past especially on rainy asphalt drags

    don't think anyone bothered. standard tires don't really make all that much difference on drags on wet asphalt. 
    Everyone is always droning on about how great mra is on that thing but it just doesn't have good enough 0-60 to be of any use. not to mention that handling is atrocious.

    fused mine months ago, never looked back.
  • TimButTimBut Member Posts: 826 ✭✭✭✭✭
    This one is an absolute champion In standard tyres drags. So it's up. to you. It has 3.9 0-60 in 996.

    but this car is absolutely useless on any non-standard tyres events.

    As @evilprofesseur said, not many have maxed it. I’m glad @TimBut could provide info for you. Most people haven’t maxed because it’s not a good investment. Yeah, it’s a good standard tires dragger, but it requires three B class cars to upgrade. There are much better epics that you could fuse those B-classes into, so most people wouldn’t spend their food on this unless it was absolutely necessary.
