    Say @O__VER, how is grandpa these days?
    Well he is back from Japan and has taken up a new hobby: Gladiator fighting in the USA! Everyone is saying he is too old for it and he'd do much better if he was still 19. Still he has his tactics and has been doing well without pure power — instead he likes to get down on all fours and dodge challengers to try and get them to fall first. We'll see how it goes for him.
    So Grandpa is still in the USA and just won his first tournament! Technically he only won because he was given bonus points for his sleeper hold on his competitor in the final, but a win is a win and he took home the grand prize of $20. To celebrate, he had shots of Jager with his pals Xavier, Jenson and Reginald. It was a very special night indeed.
    Has grandpa recovered from his night out?
    Only just. He's old AF so it does take a week.

    Anyway he's currently planning a weekend away with his buddy Trevor in Tuscany. 22 more days and he'll be leaving the USA again! Stay tuned!
    He's fighting ultra hard lately. I wonder what's changed, though that's not to say I don't like it!

    Finally round 6 is japanese car. I've used 3 Stealths for the first five round nevertheless. Probably even 5 could've worked as well.

    Why are you spending gold to finish the challenge early?

    After the first 5 rounds, you can see the requirement for round 6. So he is not necessarily finishing it early and using gold.

    Yeah, just played the first five tickets. Never spent any gold on challanges.

    Just noticed that the first tire prize is only 2.5k, followed by 5k.  Isn't it usually 5k & 10k?  Wonder why it was changed?

    If anyone has a reasonable (no legends) hand for round 24 I'd apreciate

    Sorry wasn't even paying attention to what happened but just done it with a Furai. Two rq26 Evo, RQ22 Civic and RQ10 GS4.

    It did only just win but I also spent no time trying to optimise my hand

    I assume furai for the drag? Will try that next time

    My best japanese cars are a bunch of Imrezas, so this might be the first weekly challange I won't be able to finish in a long time. At least I have a farming hand for round 24. :)
  • miggemigge Posts: 142 ✭✭✭

    I used furai, 1x 25 evo, 1x rq24 impreza, rq22 BBR and ayclone for test bowl
  • Blue2moroBlue2moro Posts: 1,895 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Yeah, I can't beat the Nissan, gonna be a 1st miss in a while.  Glad it's not an Austin event!  Best I can get is a 996 M45 that loses by something like 167 points to the Nissan.

    A 969 RQ20 Honda NSX will lose by 126 points, that's the best I can do. Don't know how much points you need, or if you have that car, but maybe it helps. You need a car that can do the 1/2 mile under 18.2 to stay within -50 points, no UR can do that.
  • mauro07mauro07 Posts: 2,398 ✭✭✭✭✭
    no red nissan gtr? 32 maybe, it is UR!
  • Blue2moroBlue2moro Posts: 1,895 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Yeah my Japanese garage is lacking.  I only have 2 Epics (the campaign Impreza still at 333 and the RQ25 Lancer Evo VIII MR FQ-340 at 633).  With no B food to upgrade the Evo I'm bang out of luck on this one.
  • HeissRodHeissRod Posts: 5,079 ✭✭✭✭✭
    The R390 is back again on RD25.

    I don't have those, but I believe the best UR draggers are the TVR Tamora/Tuscan. I have the Tuscan, but even that would lose by more than 50 points, so I guess the Nissans would lose by even more.
  • mauro07mauro07 Posts: 2,398 ✭✭✭✭✭
    nope.. i mean for challenge.. if you have the red nissan r32 if i remember correctly... lose in the first spot on stage 24 with 120 points or less if it is 330 and then you can win the all 4 race
  • ManUtdTobbeManUtdTobbe Posts: 1,477 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Accidentally won, 787B too strong... also the RQ22 BBR lost less then i thought on the 1/4 mile
  • BoxtaSBoxtaS Posts: 1,541 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Another accidental completion here. Story of my life 🤔
  • rei348rei348 Posts: 946 ✭✭✭✭
    Do you think it's worth to max the tuscan? I already have 2x tamora 996...
