Crew Challenge 193 – Mid Class Racing

top gear GIF

 

We're using two of Dodges new tracks for this challenge. Each is locked to the slower cars, one in sports and the other in supers. It's a two player team time trial, one teammate takes the sports the other the supers. I would like to do this with customs on in order to give a chance to use cars we have that we might not often race. I think there are enough there for most people to have a competitive car in at least one of the classes. But if that turns out not to be the case we could do this in stock cars instead. They are locked to the slower cars whether customs are on or off, so you can use any car it allows, providing no bug makes something appear that shouldn't. If in doubt look at the stock options, those are what you can use custom versions of.

 

Just taking Broughy's times as a guide (and these tracks are less technical than his test track), the fastest of the available cars are

  • Sports
    • Comet, Comet Retro Custom, Sentinel Classic, Verliener, Carbonizzaire, Alpha, Sultan, Banshee, Coquette, Tropos
  • Supers
    • Turismo, Entity XF, Penetrator, Reaper, Itali GB custom, Infernus, 811, Cheetah

I think between us we will have enough of those to make this work with customs on and many of the sports can be stolen if anyone needs to get one cheap just for this

 

So sign up now and say if you have a preferred class. A semi-random draw of the teams will then take place when we have enough of us, recent winning pairs excluded (DC & LadyA CC 191, Sinister & DJ CC 189, Rammstein & Proto CC 187)

 

The tracks are

 

Usual rules

  • Any weather
  • Any time of day
  • Any number of laps
  • Make as many attempts as you like
  • Non-contact if you race with others
  • No run ups

I would like to give this a shot.

From the sports options I have all but Verlierer & Alpha.

From supers I only have Turismo, Reaper & Cheetah.

Leaning towards Sports, but don't oppose Supers either.

We have 9 so could really do with one more to have 5 teams. I'll do the draw late whatever. It we still have 9 then Schumi will be half of the 5th team and hopefully someone else will team up later.

OK, Omar is in so time to make the draw.

Pool A, those just wanted sports + one with no preferance (randomly selected Ally)

  • Sinister, Skorp, Proto, Spinnaker, Ally

Pool B, the rest of us

  • DJ, Lann, Rammstein, Schumi, Omar

 

So then the usual randomising of each pool, match up 1st from each, 2nd from each etc. If that produces an excluding pairing (Me & Sinister or Proto & Rammstein) do it again.

 

And the teams are

For most of those the classes have already been selected as one or both teammates expressed a preference. Of course you are free to change roles if you and your teammate want to.

 

Other teams are welcome to join. Either form your own teams or sign up with the previous / next person to sign up.

@SINISTER120 I’ll have some time to run some laps today.  Although I don’t own any of the Sports cars required.  So I hope it’s cool if I run the Supers course. 

 Unless of you don’t know any of the sports cars either then we’ll have to come up with a different plan.

I’m part of the “don’t have any of those supers” pool so you are good.

Great tracks, tricky but fun. Is it really the choice of prop that causes the car to act like a Tug turning right onto the highway on the Supers race?

It might just be me, but I think it's just the sound having a psychological effect. I haven't noticed any drag on the car from the prop. Admittedly I'm doing the sports track though, so I'm judging more from other races I've done with it as well as the countless test runs on a track I'm upgrading that uses them a few times.

I'm really enjoying this challenge though. I'm remembering the frustration of trying to get a fast lap only to mess up one of the first corners of the lap, then feeling really satisfied everytime I cut even half a second off my previous best.

I’ll check my screenshots after work. Pretty sure it’s just under 50 seconds in the super class.
