    I’d put up some Metro testing with the Dakar & Pikes Peak.

    Also, what track is that first test?  Wet or dry dirt?

    If it's wet, there is always rain visable in picture

    If it’s dry, then why did my non-maxed Metro just turn a 1:34.03 on dirt Twisty Road, besting both of those?
  • BugattiBugatti Posts: 3,548 ✭✭✭✭✭
    These are all dry tracks..

    First track a maxed Metro does it in 1:33.  So the Dakar isn’t looking all that great.

    So the Metro is faster than a Pikes Peak, too?

    should be because of the weight

    I wonder if something is broken in the Dakar's set-up? If one of the reasons the Dakar lost hill climb was due to ride height over the pike that's silly as the Dakar is a "high" ride height vehicle over the pikes "low" the Dakar is actually performing as if it's a low ride height rear wheel drive car can hutch confirm it is performing as expected?

    Yes, the dakar is broken for sure, you are absolutely correct
  • mikesmikes Posts: 4,021 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Yes, there is something seriously wrong with it. Low ride height, performance tires, slower 0-60...kills the Dakar. Should we tag Hutch?

    Shhhhh









    happy metro owner intensifies

    They don't have to fix the Dakar.  They just have to fix the OP Pike peak and Metro, lol.
  • HeissRodHeissRod Posts: 5,239 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Well, it doesn’t appear as if the ride height is broken

    Are you sure about rallycross time? The time of your opponent differs a lot

    It should destroy the pikes on snow and ice, and also should beat the metro on snow/ice drags...

    If it isn't ride height then I'd say it isn't running in 4wd, kinda like that bug we had a while back where all the 4wd were broken when they tried to update the ai braking zones in tracks.

    I think that if a car has Off-Road or All-Terrain it should have High or medium ride. ( Rally cars are adjustable in real life)

    If it has standard it can be low medium or high.

    If it has performance it should be low or medium.

    Slick should just be low.

    Because the screenshot taken before the opponent cross the finish line.

    Looks broke or just useless to me. The pikes sucks at 1/4 mike on ice (loses to patrol) and still manages to beat the Dakar. Maybe 4wd not working as suggested or wrong tyres programmed?

    1/4 ice
    Pikes - 16.40
    959 - 16.83

    Very disappointed....
  • Hutch_TimHutch_Tim Posts: 629 admin
    So to summarise:
    - RQ27 959 Dakar loses to RQ30 Suzuki Pikes Peak on hill climbs... the Pikes Peak has almost a second faster 0-60 (!!), but you'd expect the high ride height to help. Would you expect it to completely off-set that 0-60 difference?
    - RQ27 959 Dakar beats RQ30 Suzuki Pikes Peak on twisty off-road courses due to off-road tires - looks about right
