    Stage 6 has the Maserati 250F on the 1/2 Mile Santa Monica drag.  It runs it in 14.03 seconds with a 2.2/1/1 tune.  For comparison, that's 0.50 seconds slower than a 996 Mercedes S55.  Figured we might want record of this for when it gets released.

    Here's a nice, simple farming hand. The first four races are +50 each, all won by a small margin, the last one is -50 lost by a small margin. Plenty of RQ left to finish the challange.

    The Trailblazer 996 wins round 4.
    I used a Torrent GXP for round 5.

    Rq14 Nissan Terrano works as a RQ saver for the last track. Wins all but round 25 (which is easy on other tracks, loss doesnt matter)

    Thanks..i have that first one 969 so it loses the testbowl sadly .. i assume 996 wins it on round 21?:/
  • OzzmanOzzman Posts: 1,384 ✭✭✭✭✭
    IIRC I used this guy for the testbowl from round 21. It has great MRA for it's RQ, and could win against anything. Mine is 969.

    No, it lost. But all other cars gave enough to win round

    Nightmare. Clearing out a load of cars in my holding garage while watching TV. Not paying attention, and just sold the VW Camper from this week’s Challenge. 😬😱🤦‍♂️ Have asked Support to restore it, hopefully in time for me to complete the weekend challenge. @Hutch_Robin @Hutch_Tim @Hutch_Katie - anything you can do to help that happen would be much appreciated. My muppetry knows no bounds at times.

    It would be a nice touch if prize cars cane with a bonus slot and went straight into your garage. They’d save a fortune in support time alone, this must be so common. 
  • REALAISREALAIS Posts: 348 ✭✭✭
    Yeah, I would be for option, to have special Pop-up message if you want to sell prize cars or Higher RQ cars.

    Is it just me or it this weekend challenge harder than usual? Anyone got an answer to round 4?
  • HeissRodHeissRod Posts: 5,206 ✭✭✭✭✭
    What is the opponent's hand?  If I remember correctly, I used the F6 Nissan on the first track.

    I can’t even get past 3 yet. I just tried the VW on race 5 now and I assume that’s the key but I can’t make up the loss pts yet. Around 20 short.
  • AndreasSimmerAndreasSimmer Posts: 1,040 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Please post racks to your rounds. Iirc in round 3 the VW goes on gforce. in round 4 use TbSS on last track, or whats the hickup there?
  • AndreasSimmerAndreasSimmer Posts: 1,040 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Hand for round 4 and 5. Caterham looses 4, Terrano looses 5 but the other cars make enough points.

    Swap the Datsun and the Escort around between 4 and 5 (I think).
    Useful to have those RQ11 Standard tyre roadsters (Caterham, Elan, MX-5)
  • AndreasSimmerAndreasSimmer Posts: 1,040 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Round 6 2x RQ11 Caterham, Datsun Rally, TBSS and Nissan Terrano , 500sth points

    Careful on round 7.  The second race seems like the obvious place for one of the required two vans.  I lost on the first ticket, because I didn’t pay attention and assumed I’d win van vs. van.  On my second ticket, I won with this placement.

    I put the VW at 3 and 5 which also worked. Mazda 787,Porsche Rsr and Suzuki Kizashi to fill up. I think 12c, campaign Camaro and Kizashi might work too.

    I wondered about placing the bus on 5.  How much did it lose?  Race 2 was a 82 point loss. (or was it 87?)
  • HeissRodHeissRod Posts: 5,206 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Round 8 (518-0)

  • grandvachegrandvache Posts: 1,990 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Oh FFS.  I tried to use the bus on round 4.  😳
  • lemmings99olemmings99o Posts: 1,294 ✭✭✭✭✭
    It was difficult enough to get the 2nd bus in the week, now these also need some thought, wouldn't fancy being a relatively newish player with these requirements,
    Wonder what the last 2 rounds are gonna be like as aren't they meant to be the hardest ones?
