    I doubt. It is RQ29 for reason. 78MRA is not great either. 
    I mean in real life

    minimize your losses on the drags, get your points on testbowl and the other tracks.

    Cool story, bro. I don't disagree with @RunningEvil because what cars you have comes to luck with packs. I've been playing for 700-800 days and I can't complete it because my 90s cars are one of my worst tags due to bad luck on them being in my pulls. Nothing above a UR and I have no shoot at making up the lost pts by minimizing the drags. Hell, if I fill with my top 5 RQ 90s cars I still have RQ room to fill.

    That's a tough one, because you lack good draggers. Which car do you use for the g-force? Isn't the Evo IV the best choice for that? Also the epic Skyline would probably be better for any of the drags then that RUF. How far are you from completing?

    So we have, basically, lost 10 tickets, without any compensation. And what if the challenge is so hard, that those 10 tickets would be crucial for it's completion? (ofc not, but still)

    It is almost 5 tickets not 10.
    Challenge was delayed by 14 hours.
    You still started with 5 tickets.
    3h per ticket. Is not full 5 tickets even.

    Any tip for Round 17 for the challenge of this week?

    I lose by 50 and 71 vs the two (!) Dodge Vipers.
    I think I miss 20-30 pts so not even sure losing those 2 duels by 50 each would be enough.

    Best cars I can use:
    - Chevrolet Camaro SS Coupe (RQ22) - 3.3.3
    - Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport (RQ21) - 3.3.3
    - Chrysler 300 SRT-8 (RQ21)
    - Dodge Stealth R/T Twin Turbo (RQ21) - 3.3.3
    - Chevrolet Aerovette (RQ20) - 3.3.3
    - Pontiac Trans Am 30th Anniversary (RQ20) - 3.3.3
    - Pontiac Trans Am 35th Anniversary (RQ19)
    - Cadillac ELR (RQ17) - 9.6.9
    - Chevrolet Corvette ZR2 (RQ17) - 9.9.6
    - Pontiac Grand Prix GXP (RQ17) - 9.6.9
    - Chevrolet Code 130R (RQ14) - 9.6.9
    - Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS Gordon Edition (RQ13) - 9.6.9
    - GMC Denali XT (RQ13) - 9.6.9
    - Chevrolet Tru 140S (RQ12) - 9.6.9

    + a few others in between, that I could still upgrade (Pontiac Grand Prix GTP - RQ15, Chevrolet Camaro IROC - RQ16)

    Is it even doable with my garage then do you think?

    It would be a little easier to help if you added a screenshot of the tracks. I beat that round yesterday and can’t remember what the tracks/other cars were

    I am having the same issue with this round. And the CF Pack i bought with high hopes ended up in beeing super rare and ultra rare fuse material... I kind of gave up already for this week.

    So this is my best hand so far - full RQ95 used).
    +92
    -50
    +155
    -71
    +119

    Since my last post I upgraded the Corvette for full grip (3.3.9 now), which made me gain 20 pts more.
    I'm just 5 pts down now (+245).
    I think one last upgrade to either the Corvette (3.3.9), the Camaro (3.3.3) or the Stealth (3.3.3) should be enough? Question is which single upgrade do I need now to gain those 5 points?
    (or if you see another car from my list which could help better)

    I'd try to go 336 with the Stealth, maybe. It's already winning by 119 points, one upgrade should give you that extra 5 points you need. For similar reasons an engine upgrade to the Corvette (639) might also work. The latter might be better for you in the long run, as the Corvette is a more useful car.

    Stealth at 969 is a very good car, used it a lot especially in american dream events.
    For this challenge I used 2x rq14 Code, you can't win against the vipers but you can save RQ and put better cars in other races. Anyway now upgrading the stealth or the vette is the most straight forward approach for you :smile:

    Both my Stealth and my Corvette has over 80% win ratio, but the Corvette has almost 3 times as many races under it's belt. Both are good cars.

    Only +3 with engine upgrade for the Corvette. :s So I will finally need one more.

    I hope the next rounds are easier and that I'll not need more upgrades  :D

    EDIT: Just got a Dodge Daytona IROC (RQ17) from Ceramic, maybe one new option!

    Best American Dream handling in Super Rare.  5.4/91 when maxed.

    Ah thanks for the info. :smile:

    Might then do better than +119 for 5th race, compared to the Stealth at 3.3.3 (4.5/83).

    Well, 2 rounds later it's already dead. :/

    I'm short of 30ish points (2 races I can't win) and I don't see where I can get those points. Except with lot of updates (to the Camaro and Stealth) but I don't have enough SR food...
    Not even sure it worth it just for a Ceramic anyway.

    Quite disappointing how difficult this challenge was (again, just for a Ceramic), and my 1 year old garage wasn't even enough to get the 30k cash.
    I mean, I wonder who managed to succeed. Unless you have full hand of American Dream UR or above, looks impossible.


  • Yama_sanYama_san Posts: 56 ✭✭
    Oh actually I managed to go through, with the Stealth instead of the Pontiac.

    Let's see if I have enough time to go for the Ceramic now. ^^

    Ok, all the other rounds were walk in the park, I finished the rest in maybe 10 minutes...
    (3 SR, Aston Martin DB7 + 2 food, not too bad).

    This is something I don't understand really, some intermediate rounds are very difficult, and then after that it's almost ridiculous.

    Not sure how Hutch prepare those challenges actually...

    Some help / tips to pass Round 19?


    Can't do better than +273 for the first 4 races, and losing by 50 vs the Mercedes (with Bentley I can't really upgrade).
