I just tried Rover, it's better than maxpro Dezire, mine was 6km faster on rank 1285, acceleration is slightly slower,
AR8 is probabbly 7 km faster als my Rover (current rank 1296)

@Me. Dezire is better in ~1180 rank (faster als AR8)

Ran through my entire list today of 18 possible playable cars gaining 100 pts first then losing 50 as cars got worse.
Today I cross off Cobra (handling issues slows it down), 280z (needs ET to compete), F-150 (Dezir at same rank is faster and there are plenty), and MP 4-25 (low ranked 1500s meets up with 370Zs and cannot compete).

Ok 14 cars now left, maybe more to cross off as I go.
I like this season because I don't need Asterion so I can experiment a bit and not be so serious.

Funny thing but when I raced M/P Dezir and 370Z SE they were 6 of 8 cars. Tough races equal cars all skill. I came in 2nd and 1st :D..
Never underestimate another man's greed or obsession...

So far the DeZir seems uncontested by other cars at 1180-ish plus boosts. Everything minus the last top speed upgrade. I also left out the last few handeling upgrades for now, to keep it a tiny bit more than 100 points under its maxpro rating.

To my knowledge (limited) the standard decrease in MP rating is 200 points at the start of a new season? Went from 2096 to 1798, almost 300. CL4 to Pro3. Damn I hate this game sometimes.
Good start too, getting whipped by AR8SEs TB

@Television.
In each new season, you are down 2 tiers, not 200 places.
So CL4 to Pro2 is where you should have been.

Thank you for the clarification, well I lost 2 in the first race, meaning I went from 1800 to 1798 and thus kicked down in to third tier.

...had some good runs with my Rover too, unfortunately both my DeZir and Rover are at max/pro.
Tried some other vehicles too, eg. Donkey, 370ZSE, Pininfarina, etc. after 4+ hours of racing I have only gained a few points . 
Well maybe I was just really unlucky... got regularly matched with oponents who drove TB vehilces100+ points higher.

One free race pre-Season + first 5 consecutive races in the Season.

M2 seems competitive again. 
Cockroach is competitive with 1288 Dezirs (same speed but I'm faster off the grid).

For you who have alpha beast at max pro, try and lower your steering sensivity below 50 or even to 0 and you will find that car behave very well.
Try it and please respond here.
I will play at zero sensitivity when find enough time for it.
