    Many thanks for all these hand suggestions and to @hillclimber for creating the thread. I suspect it might be a tough fight for the top spots with so many viable decks and attainable cars.

    In this event, the lotus RQ11 tuned 969. In 3 sets you have slalom, where it wins against leone. Don't know in twisty road/circuit in the 4th set...
    I'm running exactly your hand with lotus in place of leone, currently 6-0 wins and 2nd place (I can beat 1st in all set, he just joined before me)

    RQ11 elan beats leone on slalom but still decent

    Someone with me? 
    Trying to win this event, no real opponents so far
  • bobdylanbobdylan Member Posts: 3,443 ✭✭✭✭✭

    The elan is obsolete in wet slalom ... RIP . 


    So the Leone needs to be beat on wet road

    XT murders all . 
    Be nice to try squeeze in two but sacrifices far to much RQ from the drag car or off roader

    @Nemez wanna team up and look first and second 


    ...not really sure if that is a wise decision for the future but hey you've got to live in the present 😊

    Ok, now I have an opponent... TopDrives47959 uses my same cars, just tuned differently. Will see!

    I’m with @lemmings99o . Anyone else?

    I think I may have hit you once as I didn't realise you were on here.
    I'll avoid you from now on.
    Sorry

    Hey all, I'm wondering which hand would be overall the best for this event, I have:

    Kinda torn on which 2 off-roaders I should be using. Suzuki, escort or g280. The 3 rest are probaly a must, atleast in my bracket.

    EDIT: BTW I have a Subaru XT at 303 aswell, is it better then the Fiat?
  • hillclimberhillclimber Member Posts: 2,139 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @Reyne
    this seems to be close to perfect. if you don't have the Subaru Leon it can be replaced with the Lotus.

    Alright, gotcha! Replacing Leon with Elise! Thanks!

    EDIT: The escort wins against my 303 suziki on 1/4 mile. And it also beats in slalom. Seems only to win over it on twisty and hairpin.

    the victory of the Escort vs. the Suzuki on 1/4 mile doesn't matter because you should use the G280 for that. then the Suzuki wins  over the Ford on the 1/2 mile.

    Yes. Not sure about the slaloms, but my opponents block them with their XT.
  • lemmings99olemmings99o Member Posts: 1,246 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @ppedras I can only beat the ragnor guy on 1 of the tracksets now and lose to him on 1 so I'm struggling to knock him down to 3rd

    I lost a race with my Suzuki against the Ford Escort Rally..  Slalom I think. Better drive traction.

    Yes the Suzuki loses to the Escort on the slalom, but that's it. than it would also lose on the 1/4 mile, but they should never meet there.

    what do the hands in you bracket look like? did you know that there is a car that beats the XT on the twisty road?
  • samagoichisamagoichi Member Posts: 848 ✭✭✭✭✭

    My non educated guess would be that no cars can beat the XT but I can't be sure since I'm playing on autopilot lately. Such a pity. Just putting cars out there without testing anything. Our bracket is pretty much forum guys and the rest. For now. Pretty sure it will not remain like this.

    I think one of the Forrester's wins in twisty road, but I can't be sure of it. High ride height slightly better grip and only a little slower to 60

    It's the 2002 Forester. I'm using it because I don't have the XT.

    Yes, the 2002 Forester wins by 3/100s. it's the better choice than the XT. I didn't want to share this information because it spreads so fast out of the forum.
