    Test results by Autocar Magazine, 27 April 2004 Issue:

    0–30 mph (48 km/h): 1.69 seconds
    0–60 mph (97 km/h): 3.65 seconds
    0–100 mph (161 km/h): 6.71 seconds
    0–150 mph (241 km/h): 14.59 seconds
    0–200 mph (322 km/h): 35.57 seconds
    Standing mile: 27.7 seconds at 304.34 km/h (189.11 mph)
    0–100–0 mph: 11.85 seconds
    0–200–0 mph: 47.20 seconds

    Undercooked, in reality it's faster, noted for correction
    It wont be nerfed. Actually, it'll be buffed and nerfed at the same time. It'll get faster to 100 and after that it, should be slower than in-game. MRA will be 119.28 (insane), but won't beat the 12C (realistic result). I mean, it's a box with a rocket, against a teardrop with a rocket. It shouldn't beat the 12C.

    @juan_cruz_96 "box with a rocket", awesome description lol.
    so it's gonna be slightly faster on the mile, time-wise, but the trap speed would be 2 mph lower. interesting.

    Hi Top Drives community, first message here. :)
    My question is related to USA 4, first race 1/4 mile El Camino (time : 12.71)
    I'm trying to identify potential challengers, maxed out 332. 

    - El Camino itself (available 20% chance - yellowbird Italy 5)
    - Hemi Cuda : 0-60 lower but better MRA (available 20% chance - yellowbird Italy 4)
    - Corvette ZR2 : better 0-60 but lower MRA
    - Charger R/T 1969 : better 0-60 and better MRA

    Please confirm if list above is correct by running them on 1/4 mile if you have them in your garage, and of course feel free to add any other car that I missed. Thanks!

    In additional to the previously posted Charger, here is a smattering of others, although some are prize cars which some players may not have.

    This definitely should be SR...
  • HeissRodHeissRod Posts: 8,034 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Not necessarily.  Low ride height and relatively lower top speed than the El Camino means it will potentially lose a number of  tracks in the RQ resolver.
  • frederic56frederic56 Posts: 27
    Chrizzz, HeissRod, thx for your posting. :)
    So except the 2 prize cars (Buick GNX and Plymouth Superbird), the 3 cars I identified can do the job (HEMI Cuda to be confirmed)
    For the Hemi Cuda, HeissRod, would you mind upgrading it 996 to confirm? You are still at 966 (if no typo), and 966 is not enough (12.98 VS 12.71).
    Any other US rare or super rare that can do less than 12.71?

    Hi everybody, can someone confirm that Hemi Cuda 996 can make less than 12.71 on 1/4 mile asphalt dry?
    Thanks! :)

    969 does it in 12:98, so very unlikely for 996 to make it, sorry. Should be something like 12.82 is my guess.
    Maybe someone with an actual 996 can confirm
  • ErilixErilix Posts: 64 ✭✭✭
    It does the 1/4 in 12.81, you were really close actually ! 😁

    TD42792, Erilix, thanks!

    I'm 15 races away and it's taking forever to get several cars needed, quick question if this Vauxhall maxed out would it best the Caterham on UK race 9?

    I don't if that can help you, but the RQ34 Jag E-Type 996 beats the XK8 on 1/4 mile, this can save you some RQ

    Thanks, rq is not the issue not having a decent awd standard in any class for the UK.

    Have you tried to lose by 50 vs the caterham, and win more points on other races ?

    Yeah, twice, my Jag e type is 323 and I can only use the Ford mondeo on its self. Kinda sucks but I'm opening a few cerams everyday so, I'll get something, thank you

    Hi all, can someone run a Lotus 340R 699 on twisty circuit asphalt rain and let us know the time?
    The Caterham Seven 270 does 1.17.68 (UK9), so maybe... Maybe :)

    Maybe 340R 969 can do it, on wet 969 should be slightly better than 699, but I can't test, I have only 2x699...

    The rs200 was 1 upgrade away and I beat the Caterham, this is the order that it goes in 
  • BlackXWulfBlackXWulf Posts: 137 ✭✭✭

    Like where do you go from here lol, there's so many cars that can replace this format after completion, most people probably had to spend money to rush upgrade their cars to participate so this can increase sales and minor priorities (I didn't, but the the eagerness of others) so I don't see any other way to care after completing this that all you're gonna do is grind the off road Porsche if you get lucky enough to pull off. If hutch wants to make money off these renown points charge for them for gold or in game money, that'll definitely increase the chances that people will rush to collect the prize car the newly updated events kinda shows that interaction for any prize car on the line.
    TLDR; Hutch make it so that we can get a different prize car after completion and you wanna make money  off it charge for the renown points with gold or in game money
