    This is what I used in the same order. The twizy does pretty good on hairpin

    So, that just happened

    The MRA is ridiculous / bugged. The Copo is gaining on the 918 by the end of the drag. The 918 that has 350 more bhp and the same mass. 

    What makes the Copo so fast if it’s not power, torque or mass? Steely determination?

    The copo is made purely to drag race. The suspension, this tires, everything is drag focused.tbh, it should even beat Bugattis.

    Yeah? Well I looked it up.
    And it looks like you’re right 😂

    2012 Copo Camaro should actually beat 918 spider on 1/4M ( depending on engine variant)

    Skip to 5:55 I was quite surprised what's possible lol (further info if you don't wanna watch the whole video: it has 1200hp and 2-speed powerglide transmission)

    Probably doesn't help much, but a chiron does indeed beat the camaro

    Weird error on round 21. Requirements said 150 max RQ & open match so selected a hand and got a server error appear as the 1st race started. Restarted the app and got these weird leftovers. Looks like the RQ limit is supposed to be 110 with 3x Audis.

    Bruh, who flagged me... 😂 I was just showing what a purpose-built drag car can do, to kinda defend the camaro's performance 🙄
  • Blue2moroBlue2moro Member Posts: 1,612 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Won without really thinking. All these just won by 50pts each. Pick 1 to put a loser in if you want to farm.

    I flagged you, because I’m tired of getting alerts to this thread only to see people posting off topic things. I’m stuck on round 24 and instead of seeing posts in this thread about people’s hands I’m seeing videos that have nothing to do with the challenge

    Ok fair enough

    They will probably lose a majority of their long time players after it, so waiting for the end of the month to host the last challenge seems reasonable.
    Milk the cow as long as possible. :)

    As long as its before Borderlands 3 comes out then that works out very nicely for me.

    Paging @HeissRod
    Looking at the past event start dates, I would guess it will start this coming weekend.
  • NinjaDesignzNinjaDesignz Member Posts: 2,057 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Really hutch, again with the Saloon restriction 😡

    Here we go. I don’t have the E500, one of my mistakes as an early player, fusing it away. Attached the rest of my 90s UR cars. 


    Ah, the Austin challenges can be harsh on those who inadvisably sold campaign cars, as they are usually designed to be beatable by someone who is a bit beyond the campaign - and has the boss cars.

    The answer I should give is that there's a 90's CF right there...

    It looked solvable though so I couldn't resist trying some thing out. Interestingly that 1994 911 Carrera is your best bet, a car that generally gets overlooked. You wouldn't even have to max it...
    Would it also beat the red TVRs in rounds 24&5? 
    I too would be interested to know this. I don't know if I should throw the cash at it if it wouldn't get me past next two rounds as well.

    First we get the weekly challenge rewarding the last Austin, should start next week.  The weekend after the porsche is given out. In my theory.

    Should anyone still farm the land, let me give you a hand:
    -179, +50, +77, +94, +115 -> 336-179

  • Blue2moroBlue2moro Member Posts: 1,612 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I went for a slightly simpler one. All win by 50 except race 3 which loses by 50.

  • bantel_catbantel_cat Member Posts: 816 ✭✭✭✭
    Ugghh, don't think I can finish this one.
    My best Pontiac is the RQ16 Grand Prix which means I am going to lose one of the first two races whatever.
    Only hope is that the 918 can score 150+ in race 2, which it didn't do in Round 24, can't remember what tune that Solstice had in 24
  • AndreasSimmerAndreasSimmer Member Posts: 658 ✭✭✭✭✭
    My 2 star farm, switch the Bmw for the win. Last two cars are stock, Bmw weirdly 313, so it has 7 basic upgrades in it.
