also have the forums been really slow for anybody else?
OT: the config scrambler has gifted me these amazing boyes
I think I love this a little too much.
Can't stop me from loving it either~
The current most interesting rivalry in BeamNG, with a modern heir to the throne. The plain 2400ti (not x) could work as well, if you want a 2WD dog in the fight, since it handles wonderfully still.
So, I actually ran a time attack with these cars, then added some other sport sedans and random things. It was on the Industrial Long Course. The results are:
The ETK 2400tix is the fastest by far despite the least power, and quite fun to drive as well. Flying lap time was 1:11.699, even though it was the first car I drove (so I should have had the least course familiarity).
I ran the Ibishu Pessima Sport '96 to see how it stacked up against the older AWDs, and it surprised me by being the second-fastest, about a second off the AWD ETK over a single lap at 1:12.800.
I also ran the Grand Marshal V8 Sport is a couple of tenths off the '96 Pessima at 1:12.941, and gave some of the best tail-out fun, but was also the most difficult to get a clean flying lap from (and always for some really stupid reason, like rolling off an inside berm or spinning out on an objectively simple corner).
Back to the original AWD trio, the Pessima GTz '88 is a very close fourth, at 1:12.964; based on my experiences with other cars, I wonder if a hypothetical FWD variant might actually be faster here.
The modern AWD challenger, the Sunburst 2.0 Sport S AWD, was next, turning 1:13.157 with stability control off, though it felt the least suitable out of all of them with its stiff suspension.
A more distant sixth, at 1:14.710, is the ETK 2400ti (not x). Not as fast, but remember this course is mostly dirt and very rough in places; still pretty fun to drive.
The next "extra" car I tried was the LeGran Sport S V6 - now stripped of its supercharger, so basically the old pre-remaster Tow Package. 1:15.200, but it's down on power so you would expect that. Some understeer here.
The LeGran Sport S, with the naturally aspirated I4, runs 1:16.228.
And then... and then... there comes the last of the Three Musketeers of AWD, the LeGran Sport SE V6. And this car is a disaster. It rolled and flopped its way around the course on its way to a final time of 1:16.525, with understeer always waiting at every corner. I had to resort to heavy use of the parking brake, and even pulsing the parking brake, to get the thing to turn in. Notice that its lesser sibling, missing AWD, IRS, and 50 horsepower, turned in a faster time, and by over a second as well. Its flying lap was slower than the standing-start laps turned in by several other cars. Unsatisfied with this result, I ran it again later and got a 1:13.710, which is more of what I expected, though still disappointing compared to the others, and it feels sloppy and uncoordinated doing it.
The Sport S, with the naturally aspirated I4, ran an understeery 1:16.228.
Then I ran a D15 Custom Classic just to see how it stood up to the various sedans, since it was the closest D15 equivalent to the Grand Marshal Sport. That got a 1:18.569, not really worth thinking twice about.
The LeGran Sport SE (supercharged I4) ran a 1:19.771 with a lot of understeer and a soft, uncoordinated feel. That was when I realized I'm either a really inconsistent driver, too tired to know how fast I'm actually going, or just chose a lame test track. (It's likely "tired" leading to "inconsistent", since I ran again and got 1:17.653.)
This needs to be in the game by default! Looks so great
