    He wouldn't be, if the situation was best. He would be the best in a worst situation but not so much worse in a best situation. All in all, he is a good guy, depending on the day of course..

    It seems the event is rq45 for everyone. Can somebody explain what that means? Is it open for everybody including the rq150s?

    Yes, it means there will be people from rq45 to rq150 in your group

    Just a quick question before the finals begin, but what makes the yellow lotus 16 rq? And a C class? They are both 2/3/3, and I can’t see a big difference, so if someone could tell me in which lotus i should invest my money in? Since my lotus garage isn’t better than c’s :p
  • MSteeLMSteeL Posts: 923 ✭✭✭✭
    The yellow one probably has huge mid range acc so it leaves the 1.6 far behind in its fumes. if you have a bit more money to spend Id suggest yellow, but if not you could do similar with 1.6.
  • hillclimberhillclimber Posts: 2,155 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Older cars often underperform in relation to today's cars. But you will be able to use it in a 90s event as well. 
  • HeissRodHeissRod Posts: 5,110 ✭✭✭✭✭
    The yellow Lotus weighs over a hundred kilograms less than the orange one.  With both upgraded to 303, the yellow is quicker to 60 and probably handles better, even though it ends at 86 grip compared to the orange one's 87.
  • DrizztSalvatoreDrizztSalvatore Posts: 273 ✭✭✭
    the yellow one is the Famous S1..........no servo brakes and a real pleasure to throw around the country lanes with a lightweight rover engine...the other one has Yota lump stuck in the back

    anybody in the forum in my league

    That yellow Elise is so much better than the 1.6. It is so much quicker to 0-60 that the 1 point grip difference just smoothes out. Be careful when using it on wet though, it doesn't have any driver aids (TCS/ABS etc.) and it loses on a fast circuit.

    Anybody have any input on how these three compete with one another? I'm really torn.. Appreciate any help! 
    *Elan SE has 1.3 engine

    I’ve been throwing resources at the Elise, but the Elan SE is the only one of those 3 that has ABS. I have 3 Esprits and an SE, will end up with another Elise as well when the prelims end. Hopefully I can snag a 340R from my ceramic reward as the 135 and 111S are my hardest hitters as far as Lotus goes
  • AJTheCaveManAJTheCaveMan Posts: 1,366 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @milewski1015: Me too, and thanks. What are your thoughts on the 111s? I've had that thing since career mode.. Seems useless apart from this event? I'm quickly running low on super rare food.

    Best tune for this car?

  • GsearchGsearch Posts: 2,465 admin
    @erivfc ; I have my 303 wining more often than my 312.
  • AJTheCaveManAJTheCaveMan Posts: 1,366 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @erivfc: 303 seems to beat my 033 more often than not.
  • daGmandaGman Posts: 934 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Really? I thought 033 was the best. I have one of each but pre update 033 was better
