Enjoying this week, however I think I may have ruined it this morning... laugh

Was messing about with power builds, and realised I could build a FWD fiesta with 668 hp (and 926 N-m) within the 667 PI limit.... Tried it out and I've managed to go (temporarily) top of the leader board with a 3:40.7. The car is absolutely ridiculous and is undriveable without traction control.

I've uploaded the setup if anyone wants a go, titled "Pstn Stupid Car"

Edited by Kitch8 on Friday 11th June 11:40
Thanks for that Kitch. I've gave it a go and got 4th with a 3:43 something... was still in the 4:50s trying it without TC, cannot even fathom how you guys are managing with similar power without it!

Managed to squeeze out a 3:42 something and now I give up, it's still an absolute pig with TC on. biggrin

You need to redo your time with MC, as the PI is for that not M - as do you Drabbes. If you can't beat it I'll have to use your last saved time from above, unless you can screenshot another time and post it.

Really?
I'm dropping 3 pi so I'm losing not gaining, surely thats my choice as its a maximum pi and plenty of others in previous rounds have not gone to maximum pi.
I used kitch88s tune so really do not see the problem?

If we use the same logic, then neither yours nor cutters time will stand either laugh

Yay, a point. I was going to have one last go lastnight but I watched TV instead. I got to where I was with the standard 1.6 rally engine, wider stock tyres and a few bits of gearbox, suspension and aero. The next go would have been adding engine mods and taking off other bits. TC definitely helped with the rally engine and stock tyres.

Happy to get to sub 3:50. Sub 3:40 is just ridiculous and unnecessary hehe .

I was using the kitch car and was actually very surprised as to how good it was with that much speed laugh because it handled well too, my runs were error strewn though so I was well happy with my time but as aj said, anything under 1.40 was just ridiculous, I just don't know how they make such clean passes frown
I was smashing down fences on my best run laugh
Well done von

Some fantastic times this week, don't think I've ever seen such gaps before. I'd always assumed TC would be slower but clearly it can be faster under certain circumstances.

Well done for the win Von.

Thanks all - i do the seasonal challenges with my mate and we often do 1800bhp B class monstrosities which are impossible to control just to make it fun, so I've had a lot of practice with this sort of thing hehe

Thing is its not a sim and has always been better on a controller.
You know you can play it for fun rather than trying to be in a real car.
You are missing out if you do though.
