    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?
    Because Hutch told him to put a stop to it?  GSearch doesn't "work" for Hutch.

    If Hutch don’t want people to look, then either make it impossible or let everyone see the requirements all weekend but not enter. The current situation makes a problem that is completely unnecessary.

    Look all you want.  No one is telling you what you can or can't do with your device.  I am saying please do not post it on the forum.

    I wouldn’t know how to look, I’m saying it’s daft to make it possible but ban people from talking about it. Just make it impossible or pointless one way or another. It’s a problem entirely of Hutch’s own making, and you shouldn’t have to police it on their behalf.

    Imo the best solution would be to just change the challenge "button" to look more like the one in campaign

    That way we know what's coming and no one would bother time skipping

    In weekly challenge Style and Substance there are noted  bonus points for Style icons (multiplication by 1.8). But when you win a race you get "just" 88 points. I double check with my pocket calculator... it should be 90??!! o:)

    Is it just my problem (android) or...

    Can it be x1.75 rounded up to 1.8?

    Hmmm I wonder if same kind of calculations is responsible for all those weird results we are seeing sometimes. Like less upgraded cars beating more upgrades ones.

    Very good inference - I just checked and this is a x1.75 bonus, but the game doesn't show 2 decimal places.

    50 x 1.75 = 87.5, rounds up to 88.

    The Tahoe is appalling on the hill climb. Accidental completion for me

    Exactly the same for me. That Tahoe is truly awful on the hill.

    Yeah I thought the G63 would beat it by 50+ points up the hill, but not 200+ points. Accidental completion for me too.

    I know you're all eager to get your hands on that Discovery, but for the patient farmers out there on the fields, here's a nice suggestion:
    +60, +231, -50, -250, +168 -> 459-300

    So ridiculous that to lose the final round of the challenge, you need to field something like two Honda Beats on freaking dirt Hill Climbs. If anyone can't beat round 25, I'd say you're not cut out for this game.

    I hurriedly threw out 3x rq13 escort rally cars and 2x merc 280s in a rush and accidentally won.

    Yeah second set of second round is ridiculously difficult... crazy.
    They did not realise there is no good std tire uncommon hot hatch. How hard is it to do a test run before releasing tracks, seriously
