Been trying an unboosted dodge dart - check out the thread about unboosted mp cars. It's great. Haven't raced this slow in ages. Here's a couple. The Suzuki was right behind me for 2 laps of Transylvania (the dezir kd'd me). And race #2: Everyone's a winner! :) (4 player race) edit: Oops sorry wrong photo. I think I've deleted the right one :lol:

The good thing about using the DART is that you get to play mostly against noobies and beating them is very easy. Occasionally you get some smart[censored] that use DeZir and the like, sometimes TB, and then you are doomed, but you will most likely not get 4th or below, which then would be catastrophic. The bad thing about the DART is that your races will be long; noobies rarely choose one lap; they choose two or three and then leave the race before the final due to boredom.
 May the forces of evil become confused on the way to your house.

Actually, racing Darts is really good for shedding rating if you want to move down out of a league like CL to PRO or maybe even down to Challenger or Amateur. Just race for fun and then pull over. A last place finish against opponents you’re likely to face will burn rating points in huge chunks. You can quickly get to the league you enjoy most and start your real serious racing from there.

@Jake: I've gone zen tonight, I've really enjoyed racing long races dead slowly :D Yes, they're almost all "noobs" as far as rating goes, but I've had some close races, especially with Suzuki riders. I get the feeling - I don't ride bikes - that they're ever so slightly faster?

@oldman, I like your free-style with league/rating - with 1000 tokens for either pro or champion, that might be the way to go :)

You can't go down to amateur. and you only can go down to Challenger Tier 1. Because You won't lost any ratings even you finish 8th if you at Amateur or Challenger League.. the only way to go down to Amateur League is Quit the race.

You guys are saying some interesting stuff about dropping down in leagues. I never considered THAT. It may worth a shot. Nothing wrong but MP is so stale for me right now. I need a boost or a change.

No pun in... Well, pun intended.

 Or do what I do sometimes and quit racing for a week and get the 100 rating penalty. 🤣

Another five consecutive races in the M2.
Lost to H2 and another M2 from being KD'd at start. Lost to M14A flat out. It's the better car in that race.

Is the Hennessy Venom GT worth getting for 1.45 million?
I take it the AMV is dead?

The venom has good stats and easy car to drive, but has fake speed. Might be good some day if they fix the s class fake speeds like they did with a few lower ranked cars this update.

No reason not to buy credit cars. You can farm for more credits.

Also, part of the New World Glory collection which gives TKs for both completion and max.
