Crew Challenge 176 - Chaparal SUVs

 

A time trial in SUVs. If we have enough this will be a team event (4 teams at least), each teammate using a different model of car. If not then solo and you can use whatever custom SUV you like.

 

The track is Chapar Rally

  • fastest lap
  • any time of day
  • any weather
  • no run ups
  • non-contact if racing with others
  • Make as many attempts as you like  

If this is a team event then we'll do the usual semi-random drawer, recent winning pairs excluded (Omar & Lann CC169, Schumi & Lann CC167, Snacks & XuTek CC165).

 

Taking part

  1. DJ
  2. Proto
  3. Schumi
  4. LadyA
  5. Lann
  6. Spud
  7. Spinn
  8. Omar

 

Starts now

ends 19:00 GMT 18th Jan

I've tried both the Toros and the Contender. The Contender is much more consistent and stable, but the Toros is very much like the Pariah because it's so quick when it doesn't decide to just kill you.

OK., time to make the draw. Excluded pairings are recent winners Omar & Lann and Schumi & Lann - @Lann's going to run out of teammates soon at this rate!

Two pools drawn at random

  • Omar Spud Schumi Spinn
  • LadyA Proto DJ Lann

 

Now randomise those and match up 1st from each pool, 2nd from each pool etc, so long as no excluded pairing appear.

And the teams are,

 

Other people still very welcome to join. Either find you're own teammates or just pair up with the previous / next player to sign up.

 

Remember you can't used the same model of vehicle as you're teammate, so that is probably one in the Contender and one in the Toros. But it's up to you.

He @Protocawl? You're stuck with me😂

 

Have any vehicle preference? Or shall we at least both try toros and contender?

@Potato I'm happy to let you choose which to use.

I'll do what I always do and do laps in both, so depends on what one you think you can get the max out of

I'd say try both, see which one either of us can squeeze the most out of.

Let me know the sort of times you're getting and I'll see which of the two I'm getting closest to.

Did 10 laps with both and here's what I got:

1:15.4 Toros

1:12.7 Contender

I do have to say, I think I was on a 1:13 lap with the Toros a few times, but binned it both times.

Getting into grips with the Toros took at least 5 laps and it didn't get any easier afterwards either, whereas the Contender was so nice to drive, that by the end of the 2nd lap I was already feeling comfortable enough to start pushing it.

I'll give the Toros another 10-20 laps this weekend, but I guess I'll concentrate on squeezing the maximum out of the Contender then?

So after ~60 laps with the Toros - 1:12.505

After 10 laps with the Contender - 1:13.006

The Contender is heaven compared to the Toros. Toros is definitely capable of <1:12 but it's pure luck whether a bump will affect you or not because of the shitty advanced handling flags.

Final improvement to my Contender time:

1:12.340

Below 1:12 or even below 1:11 is certainly possible, I got close many times, but there was always some tiny error that screwed it up.

 

Sending the screenshot via PSN message again, @djw180.
