    Apparently this Pontiac can not climb a hill... But can win an off road 


    Probably catches on fire when you go up a hill lol

    Funnily enough I reported on page 1 of this thread (when I believe the devs still looked at it) about slick tyres on test bowl, quelle surprise, nothing has ever been done about it.

    Hold up... My Trans Am was pulling ahead... Is brake performance accounted for in this game?!
    Given reason was "Better off-the-line acceleration", so is braking in this game just accelerating reversed?

    I believe braking is covered under the ubiquitous handling stat. The race info section is like the other half after a few drinks, dont take any notice of what is said.

    My first submission for a while.  This one doesn't pass my smell test.  Lower 0-60, higher top speed, more bhp and more torques.  More weight, but that should be minimised on a rolling start.

    In very early versions of the game all cars had a visible braking stat. The stat has since then been removed (made invisible) but I still think its a part of game mechanics. Older cars could possibly have much worse braking performance than modern ones and I think that's the case here.

    Let s try a second time q2, it s difficult because i don't have a ct6 (my bad!)
    I m sure murano beat defender and defender don't want to climb anymore
    Ct6 wins vs murano? (It would be that if you post this kind of survey ^^)

    I think when it come to slopes, speed and MRA is more important than grip. That's why a Mehari fails to finish a snowy twisty road, while a std tyre car that is faster can finish it. It's not very realistic, but hey, it's Top Drives. :)

    I think there was a long discussion about this back when the Dakar was awarded. It comes down to “what is the hillclimb?”.

    The in-game graphics make it look like a mud pluggin’ Beast of a thing that ONLY vehicles like the defender would have any chance of climbing. But I think it’s actually just a fairly-uphill, mildly-damp, kinda-muddy normal road, so anything fast tends to make it.

    They briefly made it much steeper and suddenly very few cars could make it the top, which was more realistic but I think we asked for it to be changed back!

    Yeh I remember that, iirc though they were going to work on some kind of traction bonus to make it more realistic. 🤷🏻‍♂️

    And why not? I hope you didnt expect to win with so bad car you used for Test bowl.

    This is dry dirt.  It could be very hard packed.  We don't know.

    Are you insinuating RWD would be useless on dirt?
