    I think that cosworth is fuse material personally

    I would keep the M6, great for Citystreets, the second one maybe fuse material maybe not.

    I’ve taken advantage of some of the offers and have a lot of As and Bs right now. Any advice on what to keep or fuse? Thanks

    I think the cosworth, Griffith 500 and lancer evo 1 are fuse material and the A classes I'd fuse one of your WRXs, Boss 302 and Tamora

    I liked your post because I feel the same way, however I should show you my box so you can get a better idea of why I have questions.

    That CT6 is awesome on rainy city streets, even at 1.3/1.3/1.3

    Anything worth upgrading or fusing materials?

    The KTM is a better long term investment. It also has traction control and ABS so is better than Lotuses and especially Caterhams in the wet. I’d suggest you do comparative testing (at same tune) between the KTM and Caterham on the dry tracks that matter: g-force, CSR park, karting, slalom etc. If the KTM is better all around, except maybe car park where the Caterhams tiny weight may sway it, that’s the one to go for. The Silvia won’t be competitive on those short handling tests I’m pretty sure. Good for 80s events though.

    The 730d looks great for rain with 4WD standard tires. The Cadillac CTS is a little to heavy and slow I think (I have it but much yet).

    One of those B class RQ22 off roaders might be good depending on your other 4WDs.

    Keep the RS2000 if you want to compete in 80s events.

    I’d test the RQ26 Merc to see if you like its performance. It could be useful but I don’t know it firsthand. Plus it looks great!

    I think it’s great for the 90’s events. But w8 for other opinions. I have one also, but’s haven’t started to work on it.

    That thing is a beast in slaloms. It beats  033 and 330 lotuses and ties with 303 . Here is my M coupe

    233 cateringham is 137 max speed 4s 0-60 and 93 grip with a weight of about 520

    @SnowyOwl the Caterham seven 360 definitely defeats the lotus. It defeated my lotus (330). Ask the guys who have other upgrades (303, 033 & etc.). 
  • ppedrasppedras Posts: 1,017 ✭✭✭✭
    What should be the last evoluton? 303 or 033? I already have one maxed 330 but i remember that in the GB event i lost almost every race to orhers but don’t recall the tune.

    For all cars 330 typically loses all races against 303 and often 033, except of course for the speed tests (drags, test bowl, 0-100 etc). For some cars under some road conditions 330 may pull out a slalom victory. Overall though going 330 sacrifices track performance for raw speed.

    I think I’ll go 303 on this one.

    When maxed 033 does 0-60 in 3.1 and 100 grip! Faced one already.

    Last upgrade for this beast? 303 or 033? 4mph more or less 64kg? For the kind of car it is, I’m thinking 033, but like to hear other opinion based on some races done with them.


  • HuacanachaHuacanacha Posts: 2,139 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @ppedras I would likely go 033 due to diminishing returns on engine upgrades at very high power levels (based on RWD observations though so not sure about 4WD's), plus this not being a drag car except in a pinch.

    Not much to work, even in your yellow and blue cars, to be honest. Your off-road lineup seems better than your performance lineup so I'd say, maybe work on the red Pathfinder and yellow ASX. Green ASX might be useful too.

    What about the Skyline R32? Would like to upgrade it cause I love Skylines, but is it competitive?

    Well with this kind of garage you can use the M6 as fuse material. Awesome garage.
