I have one general question for normal city streets short/medium.
Is there a general statement about which tuning wins which course? I thought that 969 is always the best tuning for city.

Example
city streets medium:
Ford RS RQ18 969 1:13.53
Ford RS RQ18 699 1:13.49

How you see, 699 is faster than 969 in this case

We also know, the jag sportbrake is also better 699 for city short.
Is it possible to post some times here for compariation?! Especially from the best in class.

I'd start with I have.

city streets medium:
Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX MR FQ-360 RQ26 699 1:08.73
Audi TT RS plus Coupe RQ29 699 1:09.53

Chevrolet Camaro Convertible RQ21 969 1:11.29
Renault Megane 275 Trophy-R (Sport) 969 1:11.33
Ford Escort Rally Spec RQ22 969 1:11.39

Ford RS RQ18 699 1:13.49
Ford RS RQ18 969 1:13.53

MG Montego Turbo RQ13 969 1:16.29

Peugeot 309 GTi RQ10 969 1:18.36
Chrysler Laser XT RQ10 969 1:18.69

Ford Fiesta XR2 RQ6 969 1:22.79

    Without being overly general, the short city has less turns than medium, and is uh, much shorter. This means cars are turning a ton more on Medium, meaning handling becomes more important. Normally, for the same car, there is a slight 969 advantage on Short and a slight 699 advantage on medium due to turns. I've seen both tie on Medium, but less frequently on Short. This is on dry asphalt. On offroad city, it seems 969 is king (heavier, more traction) and on wet not sure, I think slight advantage on 969 on average on both, but don't quote me on that. I usually to have the same city car tuned 969 and 699 and choose depending on the sets, but if you have to choose one tune for a single city car, you are usually safe with 969.

    Any vets can chime in, I never extensively tested those assumptions.

    more or less correct, also IIRC 996 is best on shorts for some cars
