    Why does this have 95 handling though? Seems a bit extreme
    I know right? That's right on par with track-only race cars like 962c, and let's be honest - while I hear this is nowhere near as much of a problem today, American cars of the 90s are not known for their handling properties.
    maybe good handlig because slick tyres... and nice car!! i love Dodge Viper!!
    yeah but 962c has slicks too and I find it rather hard to believe that they can corner at the same speed.
    Is that a picture of the road car? Slick tyres suggest it's the race car.  You'd probably feel a bit better about it if the picture looked like this ...
    Yes. The GTS-R is the designation for the Le Mans GT class racing car

    Would have been a perfect time to add in cars like the GT350s, GT500s, Cobra Rs, etc... :(

    I believe it's a picture change.  I initially thought the same thing.

    It is also the designation for the homologation car shown on the game card.

    Why does the normal Challenger have 84 grip (TOO MUCH) and the Hellcat only has 83?

  • HeissRodHeissRod Posts: 5,087 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Maybe because 4WD?  I dunno

    I thought my luck was poor, I bought 12 ceramics and only got an RQ15 Chrysler crossfire Coupe of the new cars, and only a single car above ultra rare, an RQ19 Mazda RX-7 which I already had.

    Ok, so the AI driving changes seem to have made the beat even faster

    Before it did standing start slalom in 30.70 for 323 and I think 30.66 for 233.  Now 323 does 30.53 and 233 does 30.63. Stock times are the same.

    The 323 AZ-1 also beats the 233 AZ-1 in Slalom. 

    EDIT: Looks like it might be across the board.
    RQ19 Elise 135 Slalom results:

    Standing Old
    233 27.93 
    323 28.00

    Standing New
    233 27.96 
    323 27.93 

    Rolling Old
    233 26.20
    323 26.16

    Rolling New 
    233 26.50
    323 26.40

    Not 100% sure on this but I believe the Berlinetta has a wrong 0-60, I've looked at 2 sources and both 0-60s are quicker than 15 seconds.

    Oh great.  Now all of our thinking that higher level cars should be 233 is now called into question.  Should Caterhams still be built 699?  RQ30 Audis?  What else?!
    Well let’s test em. Anyone got a 969 S8? That was pretty much worse everywhere

    Strong in practice? Front wheel drive and standard tyres usually means slow acceleration in the dry and poor performance in the rain.

    Promising for US events though, a sort of super-ampera.

    This makes even less sense than before. The better handling should make it better on slalom. Honestly the old way was broken with some cars but this one is even worse imo

    That s8 is probably 330 not 033
