    Maybe it'll be 5x UK 5x All-surface
  • KarhgathKarhgath Posts: 180 ✭✭✭
    There are 4 UR and above All-Surface UK only, including a prize car.

    Even with offroad tyres, there is only the Escort added. No legendary in either.

    Unless they plan a low RQ final, I expect the final to be maybe 4WD (not offroad) or a mix requirement/country thing. For prelims, not sure what they'd go with, probably non-UK specific offroad?

    See above

    Correct, I mistakenly included it in the first sentence, but yeah it's offroad tyres and not All-Surface. In all cases, not a lot of top cars at all for a purely UK offroad final.

    I thought you meant the Range Rover SVR in the All-Surface count. :)

    Haha, yeah, in fact it's a complete breakdown on my part (Friday. Tired.) I thought the SVR was not yet awarded, but just checked and it actually was, all while Andreas referenced it, so yeah, good call ;)

    The SVT is a great car, the problem is that it doesnt come out that much...

    Tuning up this wagon for the city streets - does anyone know A. Whether it follows the 996 rule for SM streets, and B. How much it’ll lose to the boss?

  • HeissRodHeissRod Posts: 7,271 ✭✭✭✭✭
    -116 for a 969 Camaro vs a 969 Boss

    THIS JUST IN - Prelims Restrictions:
    RQ Limit:         RQ115
    Requirements: Ford x3
                            Land Rover x2

    Tier Prizes - 
    Tier 1: 1-3, UK Carbon Fibre Pack (Could be other packs, cannot tell from the packaging), Ford RS200
    Tier 2: 4-10, Same pack as above, Ford Escort RS Cosworth
    Tier 3: 11-50, Same pack as above, but premium instead of CF, Ford Galaxy
    Tier 4: 51-150, Same pack as above (premium), Ford Scorpio 24-valve
    Tier 5: 151-300, Steel pack, Vauxhall Mokka 4x4

    Packs look to be UK 4WD packs, similar to ones in Prelims.

    So Finals look to be something like a UK 4WD final with lots of rain and maybe a bit of off-road.

    Don't know if I'd say 100% 4WD, since they are giving away the Escort as T2.  Either that or they are giving away a prize car useless for the finals.

    The Escort is the B20 Escort RS Cosworth, not the B22 Escort Rally Spec.

    Ah, my bad

    Would you guys put a 333 raptor or a 969 Ranger wildtrak?
  • KrDalleKrDalle Posts: 454 ✭✭✭
    Not on gravel...
  • mauro07mauro07 Posts: 2,968 ✭✭✭✭✭
    2 RR, 1 Raport and 2 Escort rally
  • MrpiratepeteMrpiratepete Posts: 970 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I wouldn't mind it if we limit the use of gravel tracks... 
  • KarhgathKarhgath Posts: 180 ✭✭✭
    I do not have 2x RR (prize or 5.0), so stuck with a RQ18 Discovery :( I just missed the Evoke by 3 positions, first time I wish I had one lol.

    Too bad a rover pack makes no sense, not sure if F2P/newer players will even have 2 of them. Another repechage for them?

    At least not a lot of gravels/mixed, and many are speedy - perfect for the RR.

    Whilst I have 2 x Escort, this is a perfect example event which emplores players to have double/triple meta cars.

    Who needs 1000 cars in the game when stacking a few is important.
  • KrDalleKrDalle Posts: 454 ✭✭✭
    Does a 336 Raptor win anything vs a maxed escort rally?
    I dont have a 2nd RR so i could fill up RQ with a second raptor, but its not maxed...
  • LarspyffLarspyff Posts: 290 ✭✭✭
    How does the 699 escort perform compared to the 969? Busy on my third now (because I lack a raptor..) my first 2 are 969 but if 969 is the best option I’ll make my third also 969..
