    M3 has great MRA and the stats understimate the value of this car (this car is better of hte stats that you see)

    Not sure about this one. M5 is slightly quicker to 60, higher top speed and 1 more handling point. Power & mass basically the same, but M5 has way more torque.
    So it’s MRA I guess. I’d love to know why the game’s algorithm thinks the M3 would be faster? 

    The E39 M5 runs the quarter mile in 13.2 seconds @ 107 mph.
    The E92 M3 runs the quarter mile in 12.7 seconds @ 113 mph.

    That 6 mph difference in trap speed is your MRA difference.  The results are what I would expect.

    Maybe IRL, but in game, the M5 is maxed and has basically the same power to weight ratio. So do we think the difference is down to gearing? Aero / drag? I think those M3s do rev very high, and are crazy fast so I guess it’d always be close.
    I just would have thought a maxed M5 would beat a 333 M3.

    Yeah, right. I know it's probably because of weight, but still, seems stupid.

    engine upgrades = better traction lol

    I know it's only a Super rare car, I know I shouldn't be bothered but excuse me what the f*ck..."YOu rAn OuT oF rOaD bEfoRe ReAchIng tHe tArgeT SpEed" ****... got a DNF aroun 25 seconds, the audi kept going for a whole minute. On 1 mile drag the Thema achieves 142mph and it takes 34.7 seconds. I know a lot of cars can't reach a 150 in time besides their top speed but this is heart breaking for me because I love the Thema and it was so long to get it and now it's a piece of **** basically.

    You're right I'm afraid, Hutch has said that if a car can't hit 150 mph without any upgrades, it won't ever hit it. Which is crazy.
    Mine has been sat in my garage for a while.

    So basically that's a theoretical top speed? Unbelievable, I'm confused about the Thema, what's the purpose of a sleeper if it's slow, actually the Peugeot 405 Mi16 also a sleeper and it's awfully slow even for D-class standards. The only sleepers which are really useful for drag are the Carlton and the E500 Merc (for me... I don't have either the RS2 Audi and Jag XJR)

    Soon we will run out of excuses for the cars and start blaming the driver. 
    "His foot slipped on the break accidentally" - possible quote from Hutch in 2020

    That's funny because I thought maybe I lost because it's a Lancia and it fell apart during the race. Of course if you have an Alfa Romeo it has a high chance to brake down. LOTUS logo will be replaced with this -----> Lots Of Trouble Usually Serious. I think these will be in the next update :D

    My Nissan GTR R32 turned 996 lost to the same car tuned 969 on a 1/2 dirt drag race, how is this possible? I thought that drag races at least worked without issues.

    Standard tires for the win!

    I wonder why they tried to make all those Group B rally cars as light as possible, people where so stupid in the 80's, if they only knew this what we know now, that more weight equals faster cars, I am sure the Cadillac would have won the Group B championship (sarcasm)

    He meant the R32 and R33 have more weight and are slower for it. The Elan weighs as much as a horse jockey.

    WTF did Colin Chapman know; his famous quote of "Simplify, then add lightness" should really have been "Add engine upgrades and weight"

    this? Elmiraj slows down on corners much more than STS... Why? 
  • RWareRWare Posts: 1,127 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Elmiraj has misleading stats. Lower 0-60 and better grip and higher top speed....



    Also this.
    SLS GT despite being lighter and having more power and torque fails to beat the lesser version from AMG..... It doesnt seem right.

    The SLS has an incorrect stat on the back - it’s actually 300kg heavier than stated.

    But the AMG GT has ridiculous MRA, making it the better car despite having a lower RQ.

    Well. I dont think I would have ever known that. Thanks for the explanation however do you think this should get fixed?

    I do have one of those AMG GT's which is absurd ln the MRA as you say

    I think so too. The RQ 21 XLR also bested the Elmiraj on corners. The card should show less grip for sure. @Hutch_Robin

    I know the S2000 is fast. But honestly, there's like a 40hp difference. @Hutch_Robin please enlighten me.
