    Stupidly, I didn't pay much attention to round 25, I kept three of my hand from 24 and threw in two RQ10 Impalas thinking that they'd lose enough on the slippery stuff. Nope, three stars, doh!

    yeah, the challenges are very easy lately, especially considering they reward ultras.

    True, apart from the nissan one "which if you didnt have a 787 or nissan gt1 you were stuffed" maybe do a harder one for an epic or cf pack?

    @O__VER how's grandpa's tournament going?
    Ah since the recent accident I don't think he'll be participating in any more tournaments while he recovers.

    He was happy during the week to get a message from his 18 year old granddaughter putting him in charge of finding some classic wedding transport for her big day. The text read "hey gramps, can you plz find us three '50z roadsterz 4 da wedding? thx!"

    Of course her fiancé could source some cars but he's very young like her and would probably end up sourcing some kind of awful street racer which wouldn't suit the theme.

    Round 4 3* in order. The 4th set was a slight worry with the 1st race losing by over 200 points, the others all more than made up for it.

  • James_PearceJames_Pearce Member Posts: 1,016 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Damn. A third consecutive week when my smarf hand wins by accident. 😬
  • OzzmanOzzman Member Posts: 1,054 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Here's a working one:
    +50 for the first four races, -50 for the last one.

    Attempted to base a farm hand off this.  My R34 is maxed, so I substituted an R32, thinking it would lose.  Nope, it trounced that Evo and gave me a 3* win.  Didn't expect that Evo to be so bad on slalom....

    Lol looks like we're being censored. Hutch finally had enough of the story about Grandpa?

    I may have to tell you guys another tale next week.

    Come on people.   Whether you think it is harmless or funny or what ever, Hutch has already made it clear that posting the Challenge information in the forum in advance is not acceptable.

    Fair enough. But I mean, I have been doing this since 1st December — 11 weeks in a row without a word from Hutch, let alone a warning. If I had been warned you were going to take down my post, I wouldn't have wasted my time on it.
  • GsearchGsearch Member, Administrator, Wrenchmen, Senior Wrenchmen Posts: 2,367 admin
    Fair enough.  Just some communication glitches, that's on me.  Sorry.  Thanks for understanding.

    Looks like the Copo Camaro has rubbish acceleration. In round 23, my 333 Merc AMG SLS Electric absolutely smoked it down the first straight.

    4WD has a great advantage in the rain and offroad conditions when it comes to off the line acceleration, if I'm not mistaken.

    I used an Evo 9 360 Vs it and it was very close in acceleration on the second straight. At finish line my Evo had 106 mph and Camaro had 108.

    With a couple of notable exceptions, most American Dream cars have terrible MRA by the look of it. I’ve been wondering whether it’s an error in how they were set up. For example the RQ14 Plymouth cuda fastback gets smoked by the RQ12 Monte Carlo despite having 40 more hp and 300kg lighter.

    Yeah I've wondered this too. There was a massive amount of low RQ drag muscle cars added, and pretty much none of them are useful despite what their stats suggest. It doesn't seem right.

    Why push?  I asked nicely.

    Just out of curiosity.. why does it matter so much? People cannot start the challange early. The info doesn't help people know what the actual track sets are. As soon as it starts the people see the same info and have the same starting time. Is there any actual harm in it?
  • lemmings99olemmings99o Member Posts: 1,174 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Hutch said at one point that they didn't want people looking into the future in events to get an advantage, while I understand that for PvP events I don't really get why it matters in the challenge, it would be nice to actually get an opinion from hutch regarding this as my belief is that when they said it they too were only thinking about PvP.
