Notes on rarity/RQ changes
To determine RQ, all cars are run stock on a representative sample of tracks. We note their relative rank in three types of conditions: dry, wet, and off-road. The condition it performs best in is weighted most heavily when determining the overall rank; the condition it performs worst in is weighted the least.

The latest version of the RQ balancing encompasses the following changes:
- Includes all the cars that have been confirmed since the last RQ rebalance (which includes many cars for future updates)
- The corrections listed above
