Thx ****!
The new WST started tough for me.
After three attempts with maxpro Porsche, the best I got was 41:018.
Again, one frame + 2ms away from the target time.
I wish it was a 2-fuel TLE, not 3.
Darn!

Have seen here that you usually make good times JakeP.I also used the Porsche DB and got a time 39.995. Maybe I have misunderstood your post.But you must have missed the best route if we use the same car maxpro DB

I keep trying to improve and I already got an unboosted time of 40:671 which makes me happy.
I am not a PRO, so my times can always be beaten easily by them.

I had to do this one DB with a max/pro Juke. My 959 is MP tuned; so, no way to do this unboosted for me.

For the next one, I have only MAX/0-0-2-0 cars. None are pro beyond that. So, I’m not even sure I’ll be able to get the 3 trophies even with boosting.

If I can’t stay on track for tokens with the next race, then I’ll compete just enough for the engine boxes and then drop out after that. Maybe running some of the others unboosted just for grins if I have some spare time and the fuel to burn.

One thing that bugs be about this is that most of us average drivers need max/pro cars (usually with boosts) to complete these sprints. That’s fine if you happen to have the cars chosen at max/pro or very close. But not everyone has them. You don’t want everyone running an X2 or AIE every race? Fine. But instead of picking cars, why not pick a rank and let the players choose any car at or below that rank. Allows more folks to really compete and they have more fun running their favorite cars.

Perfectly understandable.
