Go back to post no.1 = golden tickets reset with every Junklet season = every week, you can't hoard them. - Calendar announced another MP-event for this week where probably golden tickets will be rewarded again ...

I really don't understand what are you talking about putting low ranked cars at the end simulating 8xxx. You know that the one who challenge you, can see your cars, do you?

I do.
But I don't choose bad cars as my [3rd,] 4th and 5th; I choose Sian, Senna or plenty of others at almost stock rank. The goal is not to end up too low, I still get to 9,000. It does give incentive to some players to challenge me, especially on easy tracks.

On other note, you got to love this guy:

So the trick here is to set a time using low ranked cars, then run defense using your higher ranked cars? Your shown rank is then the first set time rank, not your new defence time?
I'm seeing ranks in elite all well under 9000, they are baiting everyone around them.
Betcha GL didnt see this one coming.

I don’t even look at the listed rank. It is meaninglessness to me. Only thing I care about is finishing the race quickly, without wasting boosters, win or lose. (Mostly lose) Sometimes, I’ll luck into a challenge against a time set without boosters and I’ll win one or two during a day, but the only thing that matters is finishing the races and getting the daily rewards.

If you have a short track, then there’s a chance you’ve won points from me. 👍 And I completely ignored your rank. I only cared that you were defending Dubai, London, Munic or Rio.

The quicker I finish, the sooner I can be done with this chore...

for me i look at time vs track. most tracks I now know what I can do. BUT, they need to show the time BEFORE we click and spend a ticket. So i waste a ticket if i quit because i know that time is impossible.
We suggested already that they make track times available before we click on the ticket button.

Not exactly. The rank you see is the rank used to set your BEST time.
But you only really use 3 or 4 cars on a short or medium track so you choose the unused car(s) to lower your rank, but not too much.

I look at the opponents cars before starting the race. If I see a low-ranked car in the 5th position I might choose to back out, or sometimes I just don't care because I figure I'll lose no matter what, and I still get fine rewards.

Lately my favorite tracks have been Munich. In Champion league around the usual scores I have, opponents tend not to be too serious and it seems common for them to crash in Munich but never rerun the race for a better time. I've won against tripple boosted opponents on that track.
