    What's the most useful tune for an escort rally? Not just for that event, but overall

    on dry asphalt it‘s 50/50, but on every other surface I‘d go 303 all the way.

    @Antoun There you are! I was getting worried we wouldn’t be in an event together. :smiley:

    303 Escort is one of the best on City Streets on B class

    I have 4.
    Got to tune one 330
    Tune the second one 303
    I'ma tune the third one 033
    The fourth one should be decided by which one is the best.
    Do the 4th one with the magic tune 123 or 213!

    303 for short, 033 for long city street

    Undefeated (minus a disconnect) with this:
    Martini 303
    Martini 303
    El Camino 330
    Escort 303
    Escort 303

    For this event, the perfect hand would be
    Martini 330
    Martini 330
    Martini 303
    Escort 303
    Escort 303

    If I ever pull a third Martini it will definitely be a 330

    @DeserT, I will try to avoid you. Will not be easy though :)


    Maybe in the end we can take a shot at the top 5


    No no please don’t! Put on a good smurfing hand and let’s farm!

    Use a 033 Escort instead of the 2nd 303, it will be faster in the rolling fast circuit, g-force, twisty road, and slalom.

    Yes, my third Escort will be a 033 as I lack one currently.

    I have only 1 martini and no ford escort... So, under these circumstances, the bmw M1 is reasonable, so... What's the best tune? 969 or 996?
  • TGPDTGPD Member Posts: 5,366 ✭✭✭✭✭
    If so, then don't bother getting a good place in this event. Smarf.

    I have 3 Martinis. 2 of them maxed out at 996 and 969.

    Third one is waiting at 666. It would be natural just to go for 699, but im really tempted to make a 2nd drag beast - 996.

    Its just alwyas seems like there is 2 drags/test bowls/0-120 at these 70s events.

    Shhhh... Hutch are listening. They will change it to all Twisties on the rain next time if they see your message! :p

    That's for sure, but I started upgrading the M1 and now I finish it. I'm going for 996 :smile:

    Best hand is with the el camino in place of escort and the one escort left in hand should be 033 not 303
    So this is the best hand, and i can only tie him cause that is what he is running..

    But, i can't complain ,i finally maxed out a few martinis

    Finally kicked him out of 1st place for once! LoL
    New best hand comfirmed, i maxed out another martini  ;)

    This is the new best hand comfirmed..


    In 4 hours, that will be my hand...

    Finally now not exactly the same hand one of my Martini is 033 and not 303, that's the only difference !
  • LittleEnosBurdetteLittleEnosBurdette Member Posts: 2,739 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Ditched the el camino and going with this, martinis not all the best tune unfortunately but 330 911 turbo draws an el camino on the quarter and wins on the rest. 033 escort also the one to run I think. Will be interesting when @Antoun introduces the four martinis if he maxes them. I’m trying to send the second guy to you @ppedras

    Hey @bullet_splatter, I've been leaving the guy in second place alone, but since you're here, I'll help lower him down. Plus, your hand is the best here anyway.

    Sweet, couldn’t remember if he was a forumer or not, but I’ll gladly take his spot.
