Super Rare Crunch Time

Well that title doesn't really give anything away. Damn, I have a lot of new Super Rare cars I haven't gotten around to upgrading. Oh well, guess I'll wait and see what's needed.

    For Super Rare I am ready for anything. Fully upgraded selection of cars for most eventualities, complete with exhaustive timings. So bring it on ;)

    Even a wet French event?  :p

    Crunch time sounds like a bunch of drags.

    Off road slaloms and G Force please! Just packed my 5th Datsun!

    That actually would be interesting as there isn't a stand-out drag champion like in other tiers.

    Oh man, I historically did pretty well in these, cause maxed C classes are my bread and butter. Problem is, a lot of my old "top tier" C-classes are now B classes (Escort RS Cosworth, Elise 135, E500, GTC VXR) and haven't been replaced yet :/

    I'm kicking myself a little bit for fusing the 1988 M5 when it was a B class, cause now I don't really have a good C-class straight-liner

    I swear if I'm cut out of contention for another event because I haven't pulled even one of these beauties, I'm gonna explode. There's been at least three of these in the last month. I understand that there is often a single best car for the job, but this one comes up a little too frequently, and the second best (Subaru Levorg maybe?) doesn't even come close

    I admit, I'm being somewhat selfish in wanting another Datsun event. It will probably be a fast event.

    Even if it was all drags you could just about get away with an all datsun line lol probably make top 10 :D

    Probably the worst part of my garage ...except my 4 datsun... so i'm with you @CometDan :D

    Hmmm could be TBSS/Datsun time...
    Did anyone try the 3.3/3.1/3.2 setup on the Datsun?

    I have one 3.2 / 3.1 / 3.3, but I regret this. It only defeats an 033 in slalom and drags. Luckily I pulled another one to start building again, so I can sell this one.

    It’s been strange the past few weeks not getting run over by Datsuns 
  • grandvachegrandvache Posts: 2,124 ✭✭✭✭✭
    It wouldn't be a c-class event without the datsun's riding roughshod over everyone, although I'm hoping that it's something a little different, as I'm well stocked with other C class 4x4s and road cars.

    Don't sell it! It's still dominating other cars in off-road.

    Might change with the update tho
  • HuacanachaHuacanacha Posts: 2,139 ✭✭✭✭✭
    It’s gravel with some asphalt. And there’s a CF pack on the line. Time to get down and dirty. 
  • RawelRawel Posts: 948 ✭✭✭✭✭
    datsun loses a lot on gravel
  • CometDanCometDan Posts: 1,244 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Yea the Datsun is ok but it’s certainly not going to dominate, I’m trying 2 at the moment

    I know, just joking. It can still compete and win against other 4WD's. It only looses against other Datsuns. Never ever sell a Datsun.
  • HuacanachaHuacanacha Posts: 2,139 ✭✭✭✭✭
    So far... I really like this event. A good mix of lesser used tracks and conditions and it seems no single dominant car. Excellent.

    Me too, at the moment I’m 2 Trailblazers, 2 Datsuns and Ive mixed it up for the 5th, a 4WD with performance tyres I think

    Doing well with 1 Trailblazer, 1 Escalade, 2 Datsuns and 1 Levorg at the moment.

    I’m very similar. I guess the cat is out of the bag with respect to the new C class hill climb champ ;)

    Im experimenting with some cars to replace the second Datsun. Maybe a second Levorg or a standard tire 4WD. Time to get timing and tuning!
  • ZotZeZotZe Posts: 1,014 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Testing too.....

    Someone have the Track combinations noted? Forgot and wait for Tickets
  • ZotZeZotZe Posts: 1,014 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Someone in my bracket ?

    Interesting but tough one to figure out! I will probably drop my Datsun once I have tuned some other cars. For some reason Datsun is not that good on gravel...

    Everybody in my group are using 2-3 Datsuns. My Escalade and Levorg are the main difference between winning and losing.
