    Regarding requirements, some good points made above - people seem to forget that if the criteria are very wide, that gives the biggest advantage to the players who have been playing the longest and/or spent the very most; it also is very likely that buying CFs will only improve your rank very marginally. (See the Daily Event for what happens when criteria are very wide!)

    As always... stay tuned for what the Finals requirements actually turn out to be, you never know if you have the full picture until it starts!

    Anyway, this car is pretty incredible:



    With the highest stock handling of any released car, it can win against almost anything, on any track with a turn. A 0-60 of 2.6s and 100 MRA isn't enough to compete with the very best on the very fastest tracks, but that's the only weak point - other than, obviously, rain.

    On that note, you probably noticed the 908 HDi FAP beats the Zonda Revolución everywhere tested, despite being 1 RQ lower. We saw something similar a while back, and again it's a product of the RQ generation process. While the Peugeot does slightly better than the Pagani on dry asphalt, the lack of TC or ABS means it does a lot worse on the wet and off-road, and although these tracks are given less weight in the RQ for dry specialists, this does still drag the RQ average down just a little. 
    So the hierarchy between the FAP and Zonda is created from the RQ rescale we had a while back, but instead of fixing the issue, we'll just pretend that ABS and TC is enough to inflate the RQ? 

    Just place the Zonda where it should be 🤦‍♂️.

    Not sure to follow you...

    The Zonda will win under rain over the 908, same for snow (or at least go further)

    All the cars go to the same set of racetrack, with the best one overall being RQ100 (and the worst RQ10)

    The RQ are rerun each new PL too. And yes ABS and TC inflate RQ in a lot of cars ;)

    Hi everyone. Hope you've had a great weekend! 

     This is a quick message to let you know that the requirements for the Peugeot 908 HDi FAP Tri-Series Finals will be 2000 and 2002, so you can construct a hand from cars of a mixture of both years. We wanted to let you know in advance to avoid any misunderstanding as we are approaching the Finals which will start this Thursday. 

     Good luck!
    So, YET ANOTHER finals where a Legendary car that used to be Epic is one of the top cars? Come on, you guys need to cut this out – it's unbelievably unfair.

    Stand by for drag heavy sets incoming. Mile and bowl guaranteed.

    All dry.
    No city streets. 
    Requirement to have either Pagani essential (2 needed for T1)

    2 fast. 3 twisty. Couple of drags. Rinse and repeat.

    Maybe one wet for the Acura / epic VW, Audi or Evo.

    This is a business and packs must be sold so elusive legendaries must be required. Call me cynical but.....

    @Hutch_Tim, any chance of a comparison for the Rebel? Although it looks like it should beat the raptors I find that off-road cars are particularly hard to place…
  • HeissRodHeissRod Posts: 8,022 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Judging by comparison to the new Raptor, this should end up at 4.1/81, when maxed 969.  It also weighs less, but like you said, off-road is a mystical force that ignores the laws of normal physics. 🤣

    I'm thinking that considering we just got a really OP prize car (P1 GTR), maybe for the next finals something weaker. Maybe another AF prize car (Viper ACR or Ford GTX1).

    Or put the FAP where it belongs too, probably an RQ98-99 car if there ever was one.
