    Where do people sit on this one. I know 699 was favoured quite some time ago but I'm thinking 969, especially if the 0-60 & MRA are adjusted as per the corrections thread.

    I recently got some new cars, which out of these are must-haves to max out?






    MUST HAVE'S?

    The rsr is one of the very few epic cars I'd consider upgrading outside of an event. The others are all situationally very strong although I assume the BMW crt is now eclipsed by the M3 cs.  None are food.

    The ultras are all good, the miray especially.  If they're your first, they're all worth upgrading.

    Thanks! Is there any car I shouldn’t tune 969 out of that list?
    RSR 699.
    AMG GT all tunes have their uses. It's a very good dragster so 996 if you don't need it for twisties.
    Miray you need both 699 and 969. 699 first.
    Raptor 969.
    The rest you could fairly safely do 699 or 969 and get away with it. I'd probably go 699 on the two Epics tbh.

    I disagree with greddy about the Cayman. It used to be beaten by the Boxster but now I believe they're the same. Worth having both imo.
    Isn't Raptor 699 better for offroad?
    Lol. No.
    Used to be in the last BMW M4 GTS finals... Mine is 969 and always lost against 699 on twisty races of that event.
    But still it seems 969 is better overall...

    Yeah I think there are one or two very specific tracks where 699 wins. But that's the same for almost any car. It would be nice if it was easy to test the difference between tunes but nobody wants to risk wasting 15 URs to upgrade an Epic wrong. 969 on the Raptor is safe.

    I have a 699 Raptor for testing if someone has 969

    Hey, i have a lot of C cars and not enough garage space so i want to max out one ultra rare. My options are the lotus, trailblazer and the s 55. I read that the s 55 has 89 MRA which is pretty good, its like the 4-5th best B class car for 1/2 mile and 1 mile races, i think im going for it what do you guys think?

    The s55 is a good dragger and is usuable on city streets, go 996 on it, Trailblazer at 996 is also good, the Lotus is not so important for the moment as your maxed Dezir will beat it.

    The s55 IS good, but the trailblazer is likely to be more important more often.  996 all the way.

    Anything worth upgrading?
    Already have Datsun 969, Rover 969.
  • Blue2moroBlue2moro Posts: 2,142 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Row 1- MG
    Row 2 - everything useful, I'd focus on that 4wd bimmer though
    Row 3 - 1st 4 can be useful in certain situations but nothing to prioritise really
  • AndreasSimmerAndreasSimmer Posts: 1,313 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I would do a 2nd datsun 969, max the suzuki if you dont have it already. bmw 4wd is ok, renault too. the rest needs not too much attention unless an event asks for it.

    Montego and Montego Black still perform identically IIRC, so you only really need one and it’s not crucial to have by any means - the ASX is better. 

    The RX-7 Turbo can be a nice RQ saver - MRA is decent, but again, not a definite must have. 

    MG is great, 969 is the go-to I believe.

    Mitsu Colt is meh, very situational. Maxes 6.2/92

    4WD/STD BMW 969

    Second Datsun 969 is a big one

    Porsche and Renault are good for their RQ but again, very situational

    Suzuki Rally 969

    BMW M1 is like the Merc SL73 - not much MRA, really only good for test bowl. Handling isn’t high enough to warrant 969 in my opinion. 996 maxes 4.4/81

    Buick is a nice STD, 89 handling, but very situational

    My only Thema is still stock, maybe keep in case of a lancia event?

    969 ASX, 86 handling and relatively light for an offroader

    thanks,i maxed out both of them and they are decent for my rq brackets on the golden ctr3 event.(rq 71 and rq 100) i always win the drag and fast circuits with the benz and lose by 50 with the trailblazer on wet fast circuits which is good enough considering i wouldnt have anything else to put on its place. about to get 7.3k gold from events tomorrow, hopefully ill be able to finally get a good A class car from the rq 125 offer when i get to that level

    Wondering what epic to upgrade next. Thinking the Grand sport, W12, BMW M6, or BMW M2. any suggestions?

    699 was competitive last prize car event - but I would agree 969 is probably best for your first

    I had one Colorado at last event tuned 969. Pulled 2 more since then and now wondering how to max them out. Is 699 really good for this car? could make one 699 and wait with 3rd until some big event, who knows maybe 996 will be needed?

    On the M4 GTS Finals tracksets (all wet dirt), 699 won standing  G-force, mountain hairpin, and mountain slalom. 969 won mountain incline road and forest river crossing. They tied on the mountain hillclimb and the 1/2 mile drag, possibly the 1/4 mile drag too. It wouldn't surprise me if 699 holds its own. I'm starting to wonder if Hutch have been starting to make some subtle changes so 969 isn't so dominant in wet and offroad conditions.

    I wouldn't max any of those "on spec" as none are obviously "best in class" cars.

    I'd happily max any number of them in the right event, but only then.

    If you absolutely HAVE to, the rq26's you have are ok.

    Worth? I know it was rq23 but was demoted
    Supposedly its got very good mra. Seems good for 90s events :) Personally, I’d max it (had I had the cash...)
    What’s the best choice for this turbo S? 996, as the best Porsche UR dragger?

    Yeah, but it's only use is test bowl.
  • TGPDTGPD Posts: 5,992 ✭✭✭✭✭

    996 seeing it's stellar mid-range, but 969 also seems like a good choice.

    699 is the best tune for this one.
