    Sand means it’s all about traction and MRA. I mean, it’s not right but aslong as the traction bonus is there it Will be like this. Good thing there’s not a lot of events where We have to run standard tyres on sand/snow/ice

    I think we can all agree that this should not happen

    Race results said something about lower mass?

    From PL7.5. It hasn’t been tested yet in PL8.

    Granted these 918s are not being used on their ideal tracks, but my 699 should beat a 666 on literally anything.

    Might be that thing about extra mass increasing traction on low grip surfaces?

    Can someone explain me who came up with this myth?
    Extra weight equals more traction? 
    Like where does that originate from?
    I never heard of this in my whole life.
    There are even videos out there on youtube where a Suzuki Jimny or Lada Niva beat Hummers or Land rovers just because they are lighter and do not get stuck in mud. 

    The only thing I know from my old country is that people who drove old Mercedes sedans used to put bags of sand in the trunk of their car so that the rear end has more grip with the surface, it was more a ballast thing than actually adding weight=traction. 

    So can someone from elaborate how can more weight be better?

    @vladimir1989 I believe hutch built it into the vehicle dynamics. I think there’s some truth in the principle but the impact was exaggerated in the game. I thought they had changed it in PL7 but not sure.

    the threads about the 959 Dakar’s poor hill climb performance should contain hutch’s explanation, and forumer’s counter-arguments if you can find them

    Please, I've had discussions about this several times with different users and each time there is someone saying I am wrong and they are right because having a heavier car = faster car lol

    Meanwhile we have Koenigsegg using carbon fiber rims on there Koenigsegg Jesko. What are they doing?!? Don't they know some users on the hutch forum absolutely know that more weight makes a car faster?!?! They have no idea what they are doing. /s

    Lol

    They are both a Twingo and both 2016 models, is it fair to assume that Renault changed the entire drivetrain layout for those who wanted a standard or GT spec?

    Nah the one on the left has an incorrect date and should be a 2008 if I recall correctly. The one on the right is correct.

    Now i got a weird one...
    A 363 Chiron loses to a 333 and a 393 one on dirty 0-100-0
    I dont think there is any good ecplanation for this


    Yeah it seems to be an issue with powerful cars on dirt drags. I had a similar issue on a previous page with my maxed 918 being beaten by a 666 918.
