    I could max the second F-type and the sls roadster. Should I, or is it not worth it without the rq30 RUF?
    And honestly, is the prize actually worth spending most of my food?



    I'm asking myself the same question (although a bit too late after spending my food on a KTM's and buying some CF's as I don't have a hand that will keep me in T1:-( ). In my opinion you can only use ut in a Dodge event otherwise it will be smashed with min. 2 Bugatti's. Even in an American event I would get smashed with Hellcats.
    That's if you consider it only as a drag car. It's got natural 95 handling, it's counterpart would be 962c rather than any bugatti. I do have the sgc, however, filling a similar niche and being better at that too...

    I'm just worried that I'll spend all of the food and the next final turns out to be for S1 quattro or something else as good.
    Top Drives Show is coming in late again with our demo, but just to gives you the heads up, here's what I see when I test it out against a maxed Hellcat on drags:

    Hellcat 996  Viper 333  Viper 633  Viper 363
    1/4m 10.63 10.60 10.47 10.47
    1/2m 16.37 16.33 16.20 16.17
    1m 26.23 26.33 26.10 26.07

    So the Viper GTS-R beats a maxed Hellcat on 1/4m and 1/2m, and needs one Fuse to take the 1m.

    [Edit: our, not out]
    haha, remember when we thought that it has 'decent' mra? 
    Let the fusing begin.

    No twistymobile equals no chance for me... stress-free weekend at least.

    Will have to use the Miray I finally pulled in the Prelim... 969 or 699?

    699 wins more, though I haven't checked what is more useful in this event. Also, there's at least one track on every set where miray would do fine. not sure about monaco hairpin but other than that it's safe.

    Interesting 🤔
    Its really bad, the R8...  there is really no use for it at all in this event. 
    Btw, I have one in my lineup...

    Yet another F-Type Roadster event. Seems pretty impossible without one or two of them with the heavy drag focus. Maybe I'll have to late join again. Guess I'll run with something like this:

    1x Audi R8 Spyder V10 (111)
    1x Lotus Exige S (121)
    1x Porsche Boxter Spyder (111) - Could upgrade this, but not worth it if I can't fight for T1 anyways, so..
    1x Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport (233)
    1x Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport (323)

    Yet another? The only others I remember are the prelims and the jag final several months ago

    I don't know much about MRA but the MRA of the Corvette is bad. I have to use one as I have no better than that :-(. You can use 1 for the slalom and G-force though.
  • BasilBasil Posts: 366 ✭✭✭

    Is there a formula how to calculate the MRA? I went to the other forum (club) but I can only see the S-cars and some high A-cars. I can't see all the cars.

    Thanks

    100 x (acc0_60 / (acc0_100 - acc0_60)) is the most common standard but this only applies to speeds up to 100mph. There seems to be a strong correlation with greater speeds though.

    100 * (acc0_60 / (acc0_100 - acc0_60)) is the most common standard but this only applies to speeds up to 100mph. There seems to be a strong correlation with greater speeds though.
    Or u can run a car on a 75-125 track to see a pure MRA, unrelated to 0-60.

    So when will we see the Demon fix? Or are we slowly gonna see all other AD prize cars take him over in drags??

    Not very recently, but that car beats so far above its class it makes these events seem rather pointless for those of us who don't have it. There are a few other cars like it, like the Furai and Challenger Hellcat, but they were at least easier to obtain (was few epics from those manufacturers). The Jag final kind of hurts, had thre legendaries and two or three good epics, but not the Roadster, so didn't stand a chance either way. It was a British final around the same time as well if I remember correctly? Either way, I don't really like it when it's obvious from the second you see the track sets exactly what cars will be the deciding factor.

    The MRA is very poor, but I don't really see any better

    I went 699 on my RR. It wins slalom apparently, but can't test it as no one has a different tune in my group .

    Does the SLS at 699 or 996 bet the jag on any/all of the drags?
    SLS loses only at the 30-130mph track to jag if both 99x (not only drags)

    Really? Sls is a better dragger?

    Yes, in the tracks of this event SLS is better. I have tested both f-type and SLS with 996 setup, and the jag wins only that one.
