    If the car would lose traction and slide out, this would not be an issue!

    But not as good as the also RQ24 Laguna, which is faster to 60 and has great MRA...



    Have CF sales been slow so far? Trying to be constructive here: I might have bought some packs if the MRA of all the W12s wasn’t diabolical. I don’t see the sense in using a manufacturer for a prize car final where most of the cars are either rubbish or not performing as expected.

    Is it only in my bracket or everyone ignore the set with the city and going on low?

    I've just ignored the event totally. With my trash W12 and legion of Cs I'd only make T4 at best anyway.

    Remember IR cars aren’t punished as much by having slicks, so it will perform like a regular RQ24, whereas the Laguna is rq25 - 26 equivalent

    I think I've just finally reached a turning point. I've spent far too much on this game and will not spend another penny with it in the state it is. I'm already falling behind so even farming isn't gonna cut it. I'm just starting to wonder why I dedicate hours to this game every day. Late joining hasn't been entirely fixed so I'm going to give it a go this finals and see what happens.

    Early signs point to the overflow bug being fixed

    robin mentioned on a Discord that he had been reducing the way that slick cars over-perform for their RQ. I called him on it. 


    It’s pretty obvious for anyone who has pulled and tested a slick IR car vs the RSR for example

    Why is this only coming out on Discord?

    I think it was late at night. Maybe he’d had a couple sherries

    Because they mind the forum, which leads to the conclusion that they just don't care about it anymore.
    I don't know, you have a better chance to go online in discord and chat with Robin there than to get any feedback from them here...

    Thanks 👍 

    i’m Still completely lost though. So does it mean in pre IR terms, the Alfa BTCC would have been RQ 26? Or 22?

    God knows what it really means, the response from Robin wasn’t clear. I think pre IR it (and other IR slicks) would have been lower RQ. Reading between the lines though, Hutch basically do what they want with them. This ain’t a bad thing - but I don’t like the lack of transparency, or consistency

    Yeah, I didn’t think it was clear either. Oh well, I’m not in the running for the Alfa, and it doesn’t look like I’ll be missing out either 👍

    I'm nowhere for this. Will be running 3 SR.
    Don't even have a TCR so was tempted to buy a couple of packs... talk me out of it!
    Bound to get the RQ19 Golf right? Or get 'lucky' with another RQ24 Golf R... sigh.

    Brad ( @bullet_splatter ) & Cruisin' ( @plain333 ) are in here with us as well.

    What is your IG name?

    Edit: Just found you in the IG Name list.  Never knew that was you, Kelvin.  I'll try and make a point to avoid you in the future. :)

    I'm just not paying for this ****.
    Some people would, believe it or not. They would buy all 15 VW CFs just to get a few W12s and a few golfs.
    It isn't worth it. We're not investment bankers who know we only have 10 days to live.

    Anyone  in the Bracket of Matt Biondi? I’m in second so we could work together for T1.
  • RWareRWare Posts: 919 ✭✭✭✭✭
    What are hands looking like to get T1?

    How are EU brackets looking?

    Those who braved the early brackets, is the overfilling problem resolved?
