Death of the Raptor

hey there.

I made a file, where I list car times on every track, to compare fully upgraded cars and see which one is better and where.

as I was proud of my Ford f150 raptor... I ran it almost everywhere on off road conditions.

since the update, I wanted to see if the content modified by hutch had changed something.

and... that's stunning.

here are some examples, of time, for a max 2.3 max raptor.

Motocross track : 
- before : 1'22'83
- after : 1'35'46

Twisty road earth dry : 
- before : 1'38'53
- after : 1'47'29
- 240z : 1'44'xx

twisty road snow : 
- before : 2'08'76
- after : 2'20'16

also the raptor loses against 85% of earth, sand, dirt, snow, ice, versus the 240z.
before the update, it may have lost eventually slalom/g force, i don't remember.

and i don't talk about the silvia and the escort which now literally kills it everywhere almost.

i'm sorry but, it has 4wd, high ride, abs, traction control, and it seems not being efficient anymore. ( like people complaining about 4wd don't work anymore on water ).
i guess it's the same here, it seems to be considered has a rwd now...

can you give a look at it hutch ?

because now it's time to throw it into fuse for legendaries...

    It kinda makes sense on the twisty circuits, since it has less grip and weighs more, but I see your point

    But with 4wd, abs, trac control, ect ect it makes a huge difference. But not anymore today, since the update.

    i think something is disabled, it's strange. Like 4wd on water doesn't affect it anymore.
    so I wonder if the 4WD option is not disabled on all cars haha

    Have you rechecked the 240z timings? It seems all cars are lapping slower so comparing old-New times isn’t relavent.

    Of course a few days before the update when I finally get a raptor...they break it  :(

    Anyone know if the "6wd" Mercedes is also broken?

  • BugattiBugatti Posts: 3,553 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Thank god i had some of these tho

  • HuacanachaHuacanacha Posts: 2,139 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Still looking for a second of those...
  • ThephenomsprintThephenomsprint Posts: 467 ✭✭✭
    I got 4 of those swift rally.. time to start upgrading.... 
  • joengjoeng Posts: 40
    So swift is the new raptor? :o
  • TGPDTGPD Posts: 6,067 ✭✭✭✭✭
    before the update i was looking forward to getting a raptor, but not now :x
  • XA2XA2 Posts: 235 ✭✭✭
    Still no word from Hutch on this? Some clarification is needed, what happened with 4wd? Is it a mistake? Is it going to be repaired? Or is this how the game is going to be from now on? 
  • Chacha63Chacha63 Posts: 125 ✭✭✭
    Anyway... the problem now is : 
    okay we have new toys, that can beat the all 4wd on offroad conditions, but as @Bugatti shows... everyone of us is able to have a full garage of suzukis ( personnally i have 5 before the update ), and a bunch of silvia and escort.
    so now the game will become fights with : draw draw draw because we have all the same cars ?
    sounds like a funny world... I feel like some people here, I think it's to desinstall... playing a rwd game only, breaking half of the cars collection we have here, and simply create line ups with a bunch of 15 of the same cars all together.. well, not interesting anymore...

    so hope for a change.

    there was a bug weight before, but I rather prefer this good old days...

    In those old times technology are not so developed... FWD and 4WD have a absolutely advantage on off road, RWD dies in twist

    All other factors being equal, yes.  All other factors are not equal.  

    A RWD Ariel Nomad would destroy a 4WD Audi RS7 on an off road course. 

    The number of driven wheels isn't the only factor that matters.

    Anyhow, we're off topic, and I need to get to work! Have a nice day.
  • lemmings99olemmings99o Posts: 1,720 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Yeah because the nomad has off road tyres, or at least all surface. An ariel atom would lose however.

    Yes exactly, other factors matter as much or more than 2wd/4wd
