Hmmm. Disagree on the horsepower. If you have a high maxspeed, but no horsepower, you will be only on half maxspeed after every turn, and SLOWLY accelerate.

Handbrake is VERY useful as a spin-out panicbutton. Also a must for arena maps.

Last steering is worth it IMO.

It is HIGHLY recommended to get ABS as soon as possible, and traction control n stuff also help a ton against turbo-spinouts.

LDT is LDT.

I totally agree with you psycix about what you say on horsepower,

but you just need a good radiator to deal correctly with 80% of the maps :
derby - hunt - triple - circuit... supercharger makes all accelerations except if you crash
Mulltari and I have 90% of the gmr 1st records, and we did it without any HP

About handbrake : im allways using it in emergency and battle maps, but for new players, and even for regular, it's a little bit useless because they need more a better engine than handbrake.

I defend my ideas, but i share your point of view when the car has the V10 engine.

For only 5k, you should get a handbrake way before you lay your hands on the 30k engine if you ask me.
It's very important for battle maps, and useful for keeping your car under control in race maps.

Especially when you're about to fall off of the track, like in Sky Witchback, or the pit in KyCail.

The exhausts are a flawed concept indeed, they're useless after two upgrades.
Something needs to be done about them.
I still really want the turbo cut-off.

I never bought the handbrake so I can agree with metadone on that. It's very do able on the normal maps and never hand any trouble with it. Usually just waited out the arena maps at the beginning.

Anyway guys, that's not the point of this thread, we will not compare everything.

Every day on the server we have questions like :

- what should i upgrade now
- should i buy spikes or engine
- what boost does
- etc....

Im just trying to answer to regular questions.

Just a question. With the stuff you write here it would even be inpossible to get a decent rollspeed to make boosts. I think Rollspeed upgrades are almost a MUST because if your roll speed is 2 low you won't go faster then your roll speed. So IMO Also buy rollspeed

About the spikes : Only buy spikes if you can buy 2 and 3 spikes because 3 spikes do epic more damage then 2 spikes.
Mines aren't worth it except if you have maxed out.
Handbrake is a must have. Also the 2 break pad upgrades which cost 2.5k and 5k i think.

I hope this helps

EDIT : also handbrakes could be really nice for noobs : they are driving and the most fastest people are incoming from a side. They have calculated the noobs speed and will be hitting like some further then he is now. The noob can use the handbrake and then the fastest guy misses him. So i think handbrakes are very usefull

I also suggest for noobs to buy 2 plates of armor and a battery, since armor became cheaper. Gearbox isn't necessary on V6 because you won't even feel the special effect. Also, Horsepower = very usefull, i bought my 12.5k hp upgrade and I made 3 records. On derby, Figure8 and Sky switchback

Handbrake = usefull sometimes.

I got confused after the initial 90% from Metadone and 70% Multtari. :/

(Pst, you can't break percentages! D: )

No, it's because I got -110%.

I think we should hook up an AI to the servers which is able to detect retards, displaying a message to them that they have to insert a coin to play.

Bob is right though, 17,5 is not 50%

That's why I'm not proud to be Dutch.
