    Porsche 718 Boxter will be nerfed. it used to be the best B Porsche, now the crown goes to the Bosxter Spyder. I'll still keep it if I pull it out.

    It's weird because on the notes it is said that:
    "2017 Porsche 718 BoxsterStats improved to match 718 Cayman"

    How can you improve 718 Boxster stats to match 718 Cayman if the Boxster is already better? Shouldn't it be the other way around?

    Maybe midrange was improved which would render the 718 Cayman obsolete

    Could it mean that the stats were improved, as in "made more accurate"?

    than I think his salary should be improved too.

    I have two issues (proposals) that I would like to share. 1st: I think Hutch should consider to gve some cars a bigger stat. Fi The Bugatti and the Pike cars are well underrated with their S30 (or a bit lower). In my opinion they should get a S35 status. They are great cars and when you use them on a competitor without it,.. you win 90%. It is too easy. By giving them a higher value , you oponent maybe can compensate this difference with a better average garage. When I now see the nex Pike cars,... *sigh*,..

    2nd: I see that Hutch is putting a lot of effort to bring in 4WD standard tires,... what is the use on keeping still of 4WD performance tires ? Or the standard tires should be valued much higher or the performance cars should be valued much lower. I would go for the first one.

    Personally, I very much like the combination events where you have to use lower cars, like the Volvo/Buick event. I don't have good Buicks but Using my Volvo's and a 'card blache' is making my experiment ,.. and that is wat the game is all about, isn't it? Not by just using all your top Bugattis or Pikes or 4WD standard tires .

    0-60 time for both the BMW i8 Coupe and Roadster is wrong. 




    Both are quoted from Evo magazine. How is it possible for Hutch to get even the most basic and easy to find information so freaking wrong EVERY SINGLE TIME???

    Don’t worry, it will (maybe) be fixed in approx 1 year... 

    take it slow before throwing stones at them... according to this source https://fastestlaps.com/models/bmw-i8 It says 0-100kph in 4.2s but 0-60 mph in 3.6s (for the none Roadster).

    I don't know if fastestlaps.com is a good source or should I say if they used a good one or not. But I think we have to be very careful with german cars and their 0-100 kph converting in 0-60 mph.

    But you're right I'd wish too this stats get confirmed by hutch before ppl put food into it just to have them nefed later.

    This just happened when I was playing Clubs...



    Funny....I tested these two gainst each other because the stock 0-60 time and the handling was the same. I hoped that the new Golf will finally defeat the DeZir with lower 0-60 and with slicks but the DeZir just destroyed it on G-Force and slalom test....that 774kg car is bullpoop in this game...it's just a concept and destroys a Mclaren F1 LM. When it will go up into B finally where it belongs I will go out and dance all day long on the streets, I would put it into RQ21....wins against a slick tyre race car

    What about all the other tracks though? 😂

    The DeZir wins on car park, karting circuit, in door karting, hairpin road. The only tracks where the golf won way twisty road, twisty circuit and fast circuit

    Why would you send a freakin DeZir on drag and test bowl when it's obvious it isn't meant for it? You wouldn't send a grosser 600 on slalom would you? I tested the tracks where HANDLING is needed.

    So the dezir is good on half the tracks while the golf is good on all the tracks yeah? That would probably explain the RQ difference 
    You just can't accept the fact that the DeZir is more OP in C than the lotus was back in the days and it shoulb be in B aswell :D

    I have 6 of them, so yeah I think it should be B but not the same RQ as the golf imo

    The system that Hutch uses to quantify cars to RQ values doesn’t take into account where cars would be useful.  It runs the cars on all the predefined tracks in the resolver, period.  This is how we end up with cars that punch above their RQ, like the El Camino and Subaru XT.  If cars were only run on the tracks where they are used, then we would end up with a lot of cars with arguably equal track performance all at the same RQ, which would make varying hands somewhat stale.

    With that said, I do agree that the DeZir needs to go up in RQ, but not by selectively applying the tracks that are used to determine the RQ in the resolver.

    I think Hutch needs to do SOME manual changes to the RQ when it comes to the off roaders. It’s dumb that the two rare Escorts are on the same RQ. Also there needs to be some variations among the SR and UR off roaders aswell. I get why/How the RQ calculator gets them on the same RQ but this is when you have to go in manually and balance it for the sake of more interesting gameplay.

    I'm curious about the general sentiment on this, as there seem to be two slightly different views:
    View for splitting: Off-roaders that are similar but not identical should be manually given different RQs (even if the ranking process doesn't already have them either side of an RQ boundary)
    View against splitting: The Merc SLS and the Merc SLS Roadster are similar but not identical, but should not be given different RQs (even if the ranking process had them either side of an RQ boundary)

    We do already have different rules for the A/S boundary (as moving those is disruptive, so we now only do it if the car's new rank is persistent over many rebalances), but I'm interested to know which principle people think is the most important.

    Dezir will win anything off dry tarmac (maybe not test bowl) also compared to the slick shod golf so you’re completely right imho. I wonder if the Dezir was one that was manually kept to super rare as one of the border line cases, it’s not like everyone was hoarding them waiting for them to go up. 🤔

    Car and driver is a more reliable source compared to evo because from what I've seen, they do way more tests that measure 0-120, 0-150, etc.

    I think the off roader part of this is different because there are way less off roaders. So all of them having the same RQ means one car is likely going to be very dominant at every level, UR slightly different because Escort/Porsche splits decently even but Silvia is completely outmatched. SR, Datsun completely dominant, Rare the White Escort wins everywhere.
